Words of Bahá’u’lláh

  • I beseech God to aid His servants to perform
  • pure and goodly deeds
  • and to engage in commendable conduct.
  • The citadels of men’s hearts can be conquered
  • only through goodly deeds.
  • Conflict and contention are in no wise permitted.
  • Faithfulness and trustworthiness are two
  • shining stars in the Horizon of God’s Revelation.
  • Beseech God that you are not deprived
  • of the light of the sun of trustworthiness
  • and the moon of honesty
  • nor of the light of justice and equity.

Words of the servant of God (Khademullah), secretary

  • The Blessed Beauty advised this servant of God
  • to write to Shafí to obtain Húqúqulláh
  • in that city and forward it to the city of Ya and Ha.
  • The station of true believers,
  • due to lack of of readiness of the people of the world,
  • is not known.
  • Guard ye thy station as the evildoers are in waiting.
  • Today the whole world is illumined with the light of truth
  • and calling the friends of God to this lofty station.
