Quote from the Quran

Dear friends, I'm sorry, Abdul-Baha gives a quote from the Koran: "In the Qur'an God says:" Man is my mystery and I
am the mystery of her. '"

(Abdu'l-Baha, The wisdom of 'Abdu'l-Bahá)

yet it seems that in the Koran there is no trace of these words, being in an Islamic group on facebook rightly asked me what verse and Sura ... those of you who know anything about this??
dear hugs
S.C.

'Man is my mystery and I am his mystery, for I am he himself and he is also I myself' - Muhammad, Hadith Qudsi

This is all I could find- so it is from a Hadith, not from the Qu'ran

Wisdon of Abdul-Baha was an early publication around 1910 - 1911 from talks given in Paris. They were verbally transmitted and translated so are very close to what we Baha'is would call "Pilgrim Notes".

Baha'u'llah in Gleanings refers to the following:

All these names and attributes are applicable to him. Even as He hath said: "Man is My mystery, and I am his mystery."

~ Baha'u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, p. 177

"He hath said" is a Hadith.
