This is the first in a series of posts about the life of the Blessed Beauty. The concept is to present the Life of Bahá’u’lláh with the aid of images and texts from Bahá’í sources. Perhaps these materials can be of use when preparing presentations about Life of the Blessed Beauty. The materials can also be used for individual deepening in connection with the bicentennial celebrations. The two files together present the Life of Bahá’u’lláh. The first file contains images while the second provides explanations and stories compiled from the Bahá’í Writings and history books.

Zaynu’l-Muqarrabín is one of the eminent believers of our precious history. He was appointed as an Apostle of Bahá’u’lláh and a life worth reading about. Unfortunately, there is not much information available in English. To remedy this, his life story has been shared on this blog over the past year (eleven parts). To make it easier to read about his life, I have put all parts as one document and made improvements. Hopefully, you will enjoy reading about his life and draw inspiration from his example.

This is the eleventh and final post in a series of posts telling the life story of Zaynu’l-Muqarrabín.

After the Ascension of the Blessed Beauty, Jináb-i-Zayn remained faithful to the Covenant. During the Ministry of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, the pilgrims increased considerably. Year after year some 70 to 80 friends came on pilgrimage from different countries, wearing different types of clothes and speaking a multitude of languages. It was quite common that some ten pilgrims would be dismissed and asked to leave in the morning, and on the same evening, a new group of 10 or sometimes more pilgrims would enter ‘Akká. Oftentimes the Master, regardless of the season, would come to the Khan-i-Avamid and visit the pilgrims in the morning (sometimes even before sunrise). During these visits, which brought so much joy to the friends, they would recite from the Holy Writings, pray, listen to the Master and be blessed with His presence.
