[al-Mashāʻir ] "نحمد الله ونستعين بقوته التي اقام بها ملكوت الارض والسماء وبكلمته التي انشأ بها نشأتي الاولى والاخرى على تهذيب القوى القابلة للاستكمال ... وبعد فاقل الخلائق قدرا وجرما واكثرهم خطأ وجرما محمد المشتهر بصدر الدين يقول ايها الاخوان السالكون الى الله بنور العرفان ..." ; [Risālah fī ithbāt ḥudūth al-ʻālam] "الحمد لله المتفرد بوجوب الوجود [وجوده] عن كل عين ... اما بعد فيقول الفقير الى عفو ربه الجليل العبد الخاشع الخاضع الذليل الشيخ حسين بن ابراهيم التنكابني عفي عنهما هذه رسالة في اثبات حدوث العالم ..."

Explicit:

"فان من حيث وجوب استفادة الوجود منه تعالى يكون الواجب بالقياس اليه اولا وباعتبار احتياجه اليه في اقامة الوجود وادامته وتتميمه بالكمالات الثانية يكون منتهى واخرا فهو الاول والآخر"
