Poetry of Vafá

Muhammad Husayn, surnamed Vafá by Bahá'u'lláh was a prominent figure in Shíráz and Nayríz at the time of Bahá'u'lláh. Vafá asked Bahá'u'lláh in a letter a series of very important questions about the Worlds of God, the Return, the Ordinances of God and Paradise. Bahá'u'lláh answered his questions in the ‘ Tablet to Vafá'.

In addition to being a respected and dedicated Bahá'í, Vafá was recognized as an accomplished poet. The following pages contain a poem in eight parts composed by Vafá. Each poen is presented in the original Farsi with an English prose translation.

The original poems can be found in Lama Atul-Anvar (v. 1 p. 241) by Muhammad Shafi Rouhani.
