To the Bahá’ís of the World

Dearly loved Friends,

We greet you in the enduring afterglow of those memorable events that marked the bicentenary of the Birth of the Blessed Beauty. As we consider what transpired then and since, we find that the global Bahá’í community now in view is not the same as when it embarked on the first six cycles of the current Plan. It is more conscious than ever before of its mission. Read the rest of this entry »

Dear subscribers and readers,

Perhaps you have noticed a few changes on this blog. Over the years, I have had as objective to gather historical events and stories related to the Holy Places in Haifa and Akka. Although all Holy Places are not covered, the list is coming along quite nicely. These blog posts are now gathered under the new page called “Bahai Pilgrimage“.

Another type of posts is related to Holy Days. These posts have been gathered under a new page called “Holy Days“. In this page, you can find all posts that could be helpful in celebrating or commemorating the Holy Days.

A final new page has also been added called “Stories“. This year, most of the posts will be stories from the amazing history of our Faith. All such posts will be gathered there.

I hope you all have enjoyed reading posts on this blog as I have enjoyed posting them.

Happy Naw Ruz.

Jináb-i-Zayn arrived to Baghdad when Bahá’u’lláh was in Adrianople. During Jináb-i-Zayns sojourn in Baghdad, he made a pilgrimage to the House of Bahá’u’lláh. This deed pleased Bahá’u’lláh very much. The Blessed Beauty revealed a Tablet in which He extols this act of pilgrimage. Bahá’u’lláh states that this deed of Jináb-i-Zayn radiates as bright as the sun among his other deeds. Bahá’u’lláh further states that with this act, all his other deeds were fulfilled and accepted in the eyes of God.

The following compilation on the Manifestations of God offers excerpts from the Bahai Writings that might aid in increasing our understanding of these Divine Personages and better appreciate the significance of when They Declare their Mission to humanity.

Mouthpiece of God

The door of the knowledge of the Ancient Being hath ever been, and will continue for ever to be, closed in the face of men. No man’s understanding shall ever gain access unto His holy court. As a token of His mercy, however, and as a proof of His loving-kindness, He hath manifested unto men the Day Stars of His divine guidance, the Symbols of His divine unity, and hath ordained the knowledge of these sanctified Beings to be identical with the knowledge of His own Self. (Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, XXI, page 49-50)
