Tablet to the Bahá’ís of Sarvistán

 

The Most Holy, the Most Great, the Transcendent

My beloved ones in Sarvistán,

Give ear to the call of the All-Merciful in the contingent realm, saying, None other god is there beside Him, the Almighty, the Beneficent. We have inhaled the fragrance of your love and have remembered you in this prison in which the Well-Beloved of the lands is captive. The people were awaiting My days, yet when We revealed Him Who is Mine own Self unto them, they disbelieved in Him, except those who had renounced the world and turned to God, the Lord of all men.

On Tribulations

 

He is the Exalted in the Most High Horizon
O thou Mím, hearken unto My voice and be not of them that tarry. Testify in thyself that there is none other god but Him, the Almighty, the All-Powerful. He doth as He willeth in His authority, and such as He pleaseth is verily His decree. He is not to be questioned as to what He doeth, and He is verily, the Omnipotent, the All-Informed.

Meditation on God’s Omnipotence

 

He is the Almighty

Praise be unto Him Who guideth whomsoever He willeth, and Who is verily the Incomparable, the All-Glorious, the Self-Subsistent. He doth verily reveal unto whomsoever He willeth whatsoever He pleaseth, and His command doth He indelibly inscribe upon a Tablet of inviolable glory. Knowledge doth He impart to whomsoever He willeth, and the same doth He withhold if He so desire. He is verily the Incomparable, the Exalted, the Beloved. Unto Him do all in the heavens and on earth submit, and all things are created at the word of His behest “be” and it is. He is the Lord of might and glory, of power and majesty, of grandeur and eternity. All are created at His command and supplicate His grace.

The Dove of Separation

 

Hearken to that which the Dove of separation doth recite unto thee upon His departing Iraq. This, verily, is of the Way of God decreed for His Messengers.

Be grieved not by this, but place thy trust in God, Who is thy Lord and the Lord of thy fathers before thee. Earthly dominion shall perish and all that thou dost behold must assuredly pass away, while the Cause shall remain in the grasp of God, the Lord of the worlds. Those who are enabled to see through the eyes of the spirit have no desire for that which hath been created aforetime and shall come to be heretofore; but rather, they behold the secrets of the Cause from behind great veils.

A Letter to a Believer

 

The Most Holy, the Transcendent, the Supreme

This is missive from Us unto him who attained to the light of the All-Merciful, after all that were heedless and doubtful had denied Him. Your name has been uttered before the throne, and that which elates the mind and causes the soul to take flight and soar has been sent down for your sake. He makes mention in His imprisonment of one who has turned toward Him, and verily His grace has embraced the entire creation.
