  • Amatu’lláh Fatimah Bagum
  • In the name of the Peerless Friend
  • The world is engulfed with the fires of tyranny and injustice.
  • The heedless have chosen the vanities of the world over everlasting bliss.
  • The people of equity were wronged
  • and taken prisoners by the followers of oppression.
  • The events that took place in the land of Sád were a testimony
  • to the truth of what has been alleged:
  • “Blessed is he who hath not been held back from the Most Glorious One
  • by the protests of the heedless.”
  • O Amatu’lláh!
  • You are residing in your home and the Wronged One of the World
  • has turned His attention to you,
  • making mention of you from the Most Great Prison.
  • If you should choose to give thanks to God
  • using all the tongues of all the inhabitants of all the world,
  • then you would find it as nothing compared to this Most Great Beauty.
  • Appreciate the value of His favor and cling to the cord of His bestowal.
  • Convey the greetings of this Wronged One to all the handmaidens of that land,
  • that is, to those who believe in God,
  • and hail them with the glad-tidings of His revelation
  • that all may engage with happiness and joy in chanting His praise
  • during the days of His manifestation.
  • At this time, the Pen of the Most High mentions your daughter.
  • Happy is the one who in this Day of God
  • hath quaffed the wine of His love and turned unto His Horizon.
  • Glory be upon thee and upon thy daughter,
  • and upon the one who is called Mirzá
  • and upon the servants of God and His handmaidens,
  • and upon those who have turned to the Highest Horizon
  • when the Lord of the Universe
  • appeared with clear and certain Authority.
