He is the Most Glorious!

  • O thou who art enlightened by the light of the Heaven of Knowledge!
  • I swear by that Spirit
  • which is The Fashioner of the World,
  • when I call to mind the friends of the Abha Beauty
  • every sadness changes to joy,
  • every sorrow and grief disappears,
  • and as the sweet fragrance of the Love of God
  • wafts from the garden of the friend’s hearts
  • it perfumes the nostrils of the fervent ones
  • like the breeze of friendship drifting from the Sacred Gardens.
  • The heart is charmed and attracted.
  • The spirit is elated and blissful.
  • The gates of love and fragrance are opened.
  • The verses of enthusiasm and knowledge are elucidated,
  • as we are ever watchful for signs and clues,
  • looking for the appearance of energy radiating
  • from the Sacred Truths,
  • captivated by the delicate scent of Mystical Knowledge.
  • O God,
  • confirm Thy pure servants
  • to be endowed with the Signs of Thy Divinity
  • and to be inflamed
  • with the fire kindled in The Tree of Thy Oneness.
  • Upon thee be The Glory!
  • 'Abdu’l-Bahá
