Provisional Summary Translation

Excerpt from a tablet from Bahá’u’lláh addressed to Mullá Muhammad Shafí:

  • Reference is made to those who for twelve hundred years did say:
  • ”There is no God but Him!”
  • But with a word they slipped away from the Straight Path.
  • The people of Bahá are they who have passed
  • beyond this mortal world and desired the heaven of certitude.
  • The whole world is powerless to change them.
  • It is said that it is better for you to read one verse from Him
  • than to inscribe the entire Bayán, for indeed in this Day
  • that one verse will be your savior,
  • but the Bayán will not be able to be thus.
  • The people of Bahá must be well-informed so that they remain steadfast.
  • Convey my greeting to all the friends,
  • perchance the fragrance of these words may aid them
  • to reach the station that is beyond the reach of any doubter.
  • Bahá'u'lláh
