شَهِدَ ٱللَّهُ أَنَّهُ لاَ إِلَـٰهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ وَٱلْمَلاَئِكَةُ وَأُوْلُواْ ٱلْعِلْمِ قَآئِمَاً بِٱلْقِسْطِ لاَ إِلَـٰهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلْحَكِيمُ
-Âl ‘Imrân ( آل عمران )

Kashani Tafsir

God bears witness that there is no god except Him: the abiding Face rises to bear witness by Its essence at the station of the union to Its Oneness, for there will no longer be any witness or thing to be witnessed other than Him. He then returns to the station of differentiation and witnesses by Himself together with others to His Oneness at that locus of witnessing, saying: and the angels, and those of knowledge, upholding justice, that is, He establishes justice in the differentiations of His loci of manifestation and their multiple forms, that which constitutes the shadow of Oneness outside the union, by granting every truthful one in accordance with his preparedness and merit what is due to him from His generosity and perfection and [by] His self-disclosure within him in accordance with the capacity of his receptacle; there is no god except Him, in both loci of witnessing, the Mighty, the Vanquisher who vanquishes everything at the level of union so that none can reach Him, the Wise, who through His wisdom governs everything and grants it what is appropriate [for it] at the level of differentiation.
