The whole Quran is in the dot under the letter ب (Ba) and Ali is the dot

Question 6: What is the meaning of “the whole Quran is in the dot under the letter ب (Ba), and Ali pbuh is the dot”?

Answer: The shape of the [Arabic] letter ب (Ba) is a container which has been filled and is now overflowing upon others, and its content is drip- ping from underneath, while the shape of the letter ن (Noon) is a con- tainer receiving from above, and knowledge is dripping into it from its master.

{Say, O Lord, increase me in knowledge.} [1]

And Allah swt has addressed his messenger Muhammad pbuhap as ن (Noon). Allah said,

{ن (Noon), by the pen and what they write.} [2]

As for the pen in this verse, it is Ali pbuh. Imam Al-Sadiq pbuh said,
“ن (Noon) is a name of the Messenger of Allah pbuhap, and the pen is a name of the Prince of Believers pbuh.” [3]

The pen receives the ink from ن (Noon), and transmits it to the book, and it writes in it. Therefore the pen has states: sometimes it is ن (Noon), sometimes it is ب (Ba), sometimes it is the dot above the ن (Noon), and sometimes it is the dot underneath the ب (Ba). So is the Prince of Believers pbuh: he is the door to the Messenger of Allah pbuhap and to the city of Knowledge, it is through him that it is overflowed upon the creation, he is the ب (Ba), the dot of the ب (Ba), the pen and the ink which the pen carries. And the dot has states: it is the overflow coming from Allah swt to the Messenger pbuhap, from the Messenger pbuhap to Ali pbuh, and from Ali pbuh to the creation. The dot which descends from Allah to his Messenger is the Quran, and the Messenger pbuhap is ن (Noon), and he is the dot of the ن (Noon) as well.

And the Messenger to Ali phuh represents the ب (Ba) and its dot.

And Ali to the Messenger pbuhap represents the ن (Noon) and its dot. And Ali pbuh to the creation represents the ب (Ba) and its dot.
