The afternoon of departure arrived. What am I to say? When the pen wanted to describe this mood, the pen broke and the paper was torn. 
The Hand of the Cause Balyuzi authored a dramatized reading of the Story of Bahá’u’lláh entitled “The Lord of Hosts is His Name”. It was published in the Bahai World News nr 13 (starting from page 1189). It is beautiful and well worth reading. You can view or download The Lord of Hosts is His Name here.
Family joining Him in the Ridván Garden
“Bahá’u’lláh left His home “on the thirty-second day after Naw-Ruz for the Ridvan Garden. On that same day the river overflowed and only on the ninth day was it possible for His family to join Him in the Garden. The river then overflowed a second time, and on the twelfth day it subsided and all went to Him.”
The significance of Ridván is greater than what our feeble minds can grasp. Below you will find some excerpts that convey the significance of Ridván.
One of the Tablets revealed in the Ridván Garden, was Lawh-i-Ayyub (Tablet of Job), also known as Suriy-i-Sabr (The Surah of Patience). This Tablet, which is about one-quarter of the length of the Kitab-i-Iqan, is addressed to Haji Muhammad-Taqiy-i-Nayrizi. He was “a man of wealth and culture, highly respected by his fellow citizens, who reposed such trust in him that they would deposit their savings with him and often exchange his receipts instead of money.”  Bahá’u’lláh honored him with the title of “Ayyub” (Job) and he was a survivor of the Nayriz upheaval.
