Bah Quote n4636 | 

   




T he brightness of the fire of your love will no doubt fuse and unify the contending peoples and kindreds of the earth, whilst the fierceness of the flame of enmity and hatred cannot but result in strife and ruin.




Bah Quote n4635 | 

   




C onsort with the followers of all religions in a spirit of friendliness and fellowship. Whatsoever hath led the children of men to shun one another, and hath caused dissensions and divisions amongst them, hath, through the revelation of these words, been nullified and abolished.




Bah Quote n4634 | 

   




O f old it hath been revealed: Love of ones country is an element of the Faith of God. The Tongue of Grandeur hath, however, in the day of His manifestation proclaimed: It is not his to boast who loveth his country, but it is his who loveth the world.




Bah Quote n4633 | 

   




T hrough each and every one of the verses which the Pen of the Most High hath revealed, the doors of love and unity have been unlocked and flung open to the face of men.

T hou must show forth that which will ensure the peace and the wellbeing of the miserable and the down-trodden.




Bah Quote n4631 | 

   




J ustice is, in this day, bewailing its plight, and equity groaneth beneath the yoke of oppression.




Bah Quote n4630 | 

   




T he incomparable Creator hath created all men from one same substance, and hath exalted their reality above the rest of His creatures. Success or failure, gain or loss, must, therefore, depend upon mans own exertions.




Bah Quote n4629 | 

   




F or every age requireth a fresh measure of the light of God. Every Divine Revelation hath been sent down in a manner that befitted the circumstances of the age in which it hath appeared.




Bah Quote n4628 | 

   




T hese are not days of prosperity and triumph. The whole of mankind is in the grip of manifold ills. Strive, therefore, to save its life through the wholesome medicine which the almighty hand of the unerring Physician hath prepared.




Bah Quote n4627 | 

   




A s the body of man needeth a garment to clothe it, so the body of mankind must needs be adorned with the mantle of justice and wisdom. Its robe is the Revelation vouchsafed unto it by God. Whenever this robe hath fulfilled its purpose, the Almighty will assuredly renew it. For every age requireth a fresh measure of the light of God




Bah Quote n4626 | 

   




T he whole of mankind is in the grip of manifold ills. Strive, therefore, to save its life through the wholesome medicine which the almighty hand of the unerring Physician hath prepared.




Bah Quote n4625 | 

   




G ods purpose in sending His Prophets unto men is twofold. The first is to liberate the children of men from the darkness of ignorance, and guide them to the light of true understanding. The second is to ensure the peace and tranquillity of mankind, and provide all the means by which they can be established.




Bah Quote n4624 | 

   




E very time the Prophets of God have illumined the world with the resplendent radiance of the Day Star of Divine knowledge, they have invariably summoned its peoples to embrace the light of God through such means as best befitted the exigencies of the age in which they appeared.




Bah Quote n4623 | 

   




E very Prophet Whom the Almighty and Peerless Creator hath purposed to send to the peoples of the earth hath been entrusted with a Message, and charged to act in a manner that would best meet the requirements of the age in which He appeared.




Bah Quote n4622 | 

   




T he Prophets of God should be regarded as physicians whose task is to foster the well-being of the world and its peoples, that, through the spirit of oneness, they may heal the sickness of a divided humanity.




Bah Quote n4621 | 

   




T hou hadst inquired which of the Prophets of God should be regarded as superior to others. Know thou assuredly that the essence of all the Prophets of God is one and the same. Their unity is absolute. God, the Creator, saith: There is no distinction whatsoever among the Bearers of My Message.




Bah Quote n4620 | 

   




T hey all have but one purpose; their secret is the same secret. To prefer one in honour to another, to exalt certain ones above the rest, is in no wise to be permitted. Every true Prophet hath regarded His Message as fundamentally the same as the Revelation of every other Prophet gone before Him.




Bah Quote n4619 | 

   




T he measure of the revelation of the Prophets of God in this world, however, must differ. Each and every one of them hath been the Bearer of a distinct Message, and hath been commissioned to reveal Himself through specific acts.




Bah Quote n4618 | 

   




W herefore, should one of these Manifestations of Holiness proclaim saying: I am the return of all the Prophets, He, verily, speaketh the truth. In like manner, in every subsequent Revelation, the return of the former Revelation is a fact, the truth of which is firmly established....




Bah Quote n4617 | 

   




I t is clear and evident to thee that all the Prophets are the Temples of the Cause of God, Who have appeared clothed in divers attire.




Bah Quote n4616 | 

   




T hese attributes of God are not, and have never been, vouchsafed specially unto certain Prophets, and withheld from others. Nay, all the Prophets of God, His well-favoured, His holy and chosen Messengers are, without exception, the bearers of His names, and the embodiments of His attributes.




Bah Quote n4615 | 

   




A rise, O wayfarer in the path of the Love of God, and aid thou His Cause.




Bah Quote n4614 | 

   




B estir yourselves, O people, in anticipation of the days of Divine justice, for the promised hour is now come. Beware lest ye fail to apprehend its import and be accounted among the erring.




Bah Quote n4613 | 

   




G reat indeed is this Day! The allusions made to it in all the sacred Scriptures as the Day of God attest its greatness. The soul of every Prophet of God, of every Divine Messenger, hath thirsted for this wondrous Day.




Bah Quote n4612 | 

   




B end your energies to whatever may foster the education of men.




Bah Quote n4611 | 

   




S how forbearance and benevolence and love to one another.




Bah Quote n4610 | 

   




N ow is the time to cheer and refresh the down-cast through the invigorating breeze of love and fellowship, and the living waters of friendliness and charity.




Bah Quote n4609 | 

   




I t is incumbent upon all the peoples of the world to reconcile their differences, and, with perfect unity and peace, abide beneath the shadow of the Tree of His care and loving-kindness.




Bah Quote n4608 | 

   




T he Revelation which, from time immemorial, hath been acclaimed as the Purpose and Promise of all the Prophets of God, and the most cherished Desire of His Messengers, hath now, by virtue of the pervasive Will of the Almighty and at His irresistible bidding, been revealed unto men.




Bah Quote n4607 | 

   




W ere any of the all-embracing Manifestations of God to declare: I am God! He verily speaketh the truth, and no doubt attacheth thereto. For it hath been repeatedly demonstrated that through their Revelation, their attributes and names, the Revelation of God, His name and His attributes, are made manifest in the world.




Bah Quote n4606 | 

   




T he heart must needs therefore be cleansed from the idle sayings of men, and sanctified from every earthly affection, so that it may discover the hidden meaning of divine inspiration, and become the treasury of the mysteries of divine knowledge.




Bah Quote n4605 | 

   




W ould that the hearts of men could be cleansed from these manmade limitations and obscure thoughts imposed upon them! Haply they may be illumined by the light of the Sun of true knowledge, and comprehend the mysteries of divine wisdom.




Bah Quote n4604 | 

   




I nasmuch as the Christian divines have failed to apprehend the meaning of these words, and did not recognise their object and purpose, and have clung to the literal interpretation of the words of Jesus, they therefore became deprived of the streaming grace of the Muhammadan Revelation and its showering bounties.




Bah Quote n4603 | 

   




E very discerning observer will recognise that in the Dispensation of the Quran both the Book and the Cause of Jesus were confirmed. As to the matter of names, Muhammad, Himself, declared: I am Jesus. He recognised the truth of the signs, prophecies, and words of Jesus, and testified that they were all of God.




Bah Quote n4602 | 

   




L eaders of religion, in every age, have hindered their people from attaining the shores of eternal salvation, inasmuch as they held the reins of authority in their mighty grasp.




Bah Quote n4601 | 

   




N ot one single Manifestation of Holiness hath appeared but He was afflicted by the denials, the repudiation, and the vehement opposition of the people around Him




Bah Quote n4600 | 

   




C onsider the past. How many, both high and low, have, at all times, yearningly awaited the advent of the Manifestations of God in the sanctified persons of His chosen Ones. How often have they expected His coming, how frequently have they prayed that the breeze of divine mercy might blow, and the promised Beauty step forth from behind the veil of concealment, and be made manifest to all the world. And whensoever the portals of grace did open, and the clouds of divine bounty did rain upon mankind, and the light of the Unseen did shine above the horizon of celestial might, they all denied Him, and turned away from His face -- the face of God Himself.




Bah Quote n4599 | 

   




T hey that tread the path of faith, they that thirst for the wine of certitude, must cleanse themselves of all that is earthly -- their ears from idle talk, their minds from vain imaginings, their hearts from worldly affections, their eyes from that which perisheth.




Bah Quote n4598 | 

   




N o man shall attain the shores of the ocean of true understanding except he be detached from all that is in heaven and on earth




Bah Quote n4597 | 

   




B eware lest the desires of the flesh and of a corrupt inclination provoke divisions among you. Be ye as the fingers of one hand, the members of one body.




Bah Quote n4596 |
