I send this letter there to you all the ones trusting in Isa Almasi. He is our (incl.) God and he is the one who saves us (incl.). Because he is straight/righteous he did not make a difference between us (incl.) but the trust he put into your liver and the trust he put into our (excl.) liver are equally valuable.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
