* We desire but the good of the world and the happiness of the nations ; yet they deem Us a stirrer up of strife and sedition worthy of bondage and banishment..
That all nations should become one in faith and all men as brothers; that the bonds of affection and unity between the sons of men should be strengthened ; that diversity of religion should cease, and differences of race be annulled - what harm is there in this? Yet so it shall be ; these fruitless strife(s), these ruinous wars shall pass away, and the "Most Great Peace" shall come...
Yet do We see your kings and rulers lavishing their treasures more freely on means for the destruction of the human race than on that which would conduce to the happiness of mankind....
These strife(s) and this bloodshed and discord must cease, and all men be as one kindred and one family....
Let not a man glory in this, that he loves his country; let him rather glory in this, that he loves his kind....



* One hundred years ago, (More than 150 years now) Baha'u'llah, the returned Christ and the Founder of the Baha'i Faith, proclaimed in clear and unmistakable language, to the kings and rulers of the world, to its religious leaders, and to mankind in general that the long promised age of world peace and brotherhood had at last dawned and that He Himself was the Bearer of the new message and power from God which would transform the prevailing system of antagonism and enmity between men and create the spirit and form of the destined world order.

At that time the splendour and panoply of the monarchs reflected the vast power which they exercised, autocratically for the most part, over the greater portion of the earth. Baha'u'llah, an exile from His native Persia for His religious teaching, was the prisoner of the tyrannical, all-powerful Sultan of the Ottoman Empire (the beast mentioned in Revelation). In such circumstances He addressed the rulers of the world. His Tablets to particular kings and to the Pope, although delivered, were either ignored or rejected, their wise counsels and dire warnings went unheeded, and in one instance the bearer was cruelly tortured and killed.

Baha'u'llah, viewing that old world and seeing it "at the mercy of rulers so drunk with pride that they cannot discern clearly their own best advantage" declared that "...the strife that divides and afflicts the human race is daily increasing. The signs of impending convulsions and chaos can now be discerned, inasmuch as the prevailing order appears to be lamentably defective." Although painting in sombre tones the "divine chastisement" which would assail most of those rulers and engulf in ruin the peoples of the world, He nevertheless left no doubt about the outcome. "Soon", He declared, "will the present day order be rolled up and a new one spread out in its stead." Since the ascension of Baha'u'llah in 1892, in the Holy Land, the rolling up of the old order has become the daily experience of mankind and no abatement of this process is discernible. The essence of the returned Christ's (Baha'u'llah's) World Order is the unity of the human race.

You were previously presented with various prophecies pertaining to the "Return" of Christ. They consisted of the complete unsealing of the 24th chapter of the writings of the Apostle Matthew with some selections taken from the writings of the prophet Daniel, some of his predictions pertaining to Christ. It is interesting to mention that the prophet Daniel mentioned, indirectly, the forthcoming of Christ. He predicted his first as well as his second coming. You have also being presented with a true story written by a 15 year old Jewish teenager who also accepts the first and second coming of Christ.

Proofs were also brought forward, which were taken from the writings of the apostle John, saying that it is the Holy Spirit that returns and manifests Himself to the world through another human being who is a Godly Manifestation. We also discovered, in our search of biblical writings, that Jesus never promised to return in the same physical attire, in the same flesh. What He promised, and are recorded in the writings of John, was the return of the same Holy Spirit who spoke to the world through Him.

The true story pertaining to the new forerunner was also brought forward. He was killed because of his strong beliefs in God. He was put to death by the Moslem political leaders of His time whose hearts had been inflamed with hatred by the Mullahs, the Moslem religious teachers.

You were also presented with additional proofs pertaining to the return of Christ, proofs which were taken from the biblical writings of many of the Apostles. You do not have to believe anything I have assembled and presented on this site because you have the choice of carrying out your own investigation, unhindered by anyone.

For the first time in the history of mankind on this planet, God has spoken to the people of our world through a new Manifestation who wrote down Himself all the new teachings that God wanted Him to present to us, which He did very well. However, it would seem that our world is void of any spirituality whatsoever because very few are investigating the claims of the returned Christ. Why is that? Can mankind really afford to continue to ignore God and the new teachings that He has given us? What price will we pay for our inaction? Will we receive retaliation from God Himself? I can only suggest that you study the returned Christ' proclamation to the world. You will most certainly begin to comprehend God's purpose for humankind on this planet.

You are now being presented with various sayings of the returned Christ, His proclamation to the world. We previously discovered that His strange new name is Baha'u'llah. The returned Christ proclaimed Himself to all the major world leaders, religious and political. He wrote to them from His prison where He was being illegally held by His own government and the Ottoman empire. You are presented with a few glimpses of what He told them. Here are some of the sayings of the returned Christ who came to us bearing a new name, exactly as it was prophesied in Revelation chapter three verse twelve (and my own new name).

The following messages have all been downloaded from the archives in the holy Land. They were originally written by the hand and the pen of the returned Christ whose name is Baha'u'llah, meaning the Glory of God in English. They have since being translated into English.

"O children of men", He writes, "the fundamental purpose animating the Faith of God and His Religion is to safeguard the interests and promote the unity of the human race... " And He warns, "The well-being of mankind, its peace and security, are unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established."

"The achievement of this unity is Baha'u'llah's declared mission and the aim of all Baha'i activity. Its outline and structure are indicated in the following passage from the writings of Shoghi Effendi, great-grandson of Baha'u'llah, Guardian of the Baha'i Faith and the original official translator of His writings.

* The unity of the human race, as envisaged by Baha'u'llah, implies the establishment of a world commonwealth in which all nations, races, creeds and classes are closely and permanently united, and in which the autonomy of its state members and personal freedom and initiative of the individuals that compose them are definitely and completely safeguarded. This commonwealth must, as far as we can visualize it, consist of a world legislature, whose members will, as the trustees of the whole of mankind, ultimately control the entire resources of all the component nations, and will enact such laws as shall be required to regulate the life, satisfy the needs and adjust the relationships of all races and peoples. A world executive, backed by an international Force, will carry out the decisions arrived at, and apply the laws enacted by, this world legislature, and will safeguard the organic unity of the whole commonwealth. A world tribunal will adjudicate and deliver its compulsory and final verdict in all and any disputes that may arise between the various elements constituting this universal system. A mechanism of world inter-communication will be devised, embracing the whole planet, freed from national hindrances and restrictions, and functioning with marvellous swiftness and perfect regularity. A world metropolis will act as the nerve centre of a world civilization, the focus towards which the unifying forces of life will converge and from which its energizing influences will radiate. A world language will either be invented or chosen from among the existing languages and will be taught in the schools of all the federated nations as an auxiliary to their mother tongue. A world script, a world literature, a uniform and universal system of currency, of weights and measures, will simplify and facilitate intercourse and understanding among the nations and races of mankind. In such a world society, science and religion, the two most potent forces in human life, will be reconciled, will co-operate, and will harmoniously develop. The press will, under such a system, while giving full scope to the expression of the diversified views and convictions of mankind, cease to be mischievously manipulated by vested interests, whether private or public, and will be liberated from the influence of contending governments and peoples. The economic resources of the world will be organized, its sources of raw materials will be tapped and fully utilized, its markets will be co-ordinated and developed, and the distribution of its products will be equitably regulated.

National rivalries, hatreds and intrigues will cease, and racial animosity and prejudice will be replaced by racial amity, understanding and co-operation. The causes of religious strife will be permanently removed, economic barriers and restrictions will be completely abolished, and the inordinate distinction between classes will be obliterated. Destitution on the one hand, and gross accumulation of ownership on the other, will disappear. The enormous energy dissipated and wasted on war, whether economic or political, will be consecrated to such ends as will extend the range of human inventions and technical development, to the increase of the productivity of mankind, to the extermination of disease, to the extension of scientific research, to the raising of the standard of physical health, to the sharpening and refinement of the human brain, to the exploitation of the unused and unsuspected resources of the planet, to the prolongation of human life, and to the furtherance of any other agency that can stimulate the intellectual, the moral, and spiritual life of the entire human race.

A world federal system, ruling the whole earth and exercising unchallengeable authority over its unimaginably vast resources, blending and embodying the ideals of both the East and the West, liberated from the curse of war and its miseries, and bent on the exploitation of all the available sources of energy on the surface of the planet, a system in which Force is made the servant of Justice, whose life is sustained by its universal recognition of one God and by its allegiance to one common Revelation - such is the goal towards which humanity, impelled by the unifying forces of life, is moving.

Baha'u'llah's message is one of hope, of love, of practical reconstruction. Today we reap the appalling results of our forebears' rejection of His divine call ; but today there are new rulers, new people, who perchance may hear and avoid or mitigate the severity of impending catastrophe. It is with this hope and believing it to be its sacred duty, that the international governing body of the Baha'i Faith, proclaims again, through publication of these selected passages, the essence of that mighty call of a century ago. In the same hope and belief the Baha'is throughout the world will do their utmost during this centenary period to bring to the attention of their fellow-men the redeeming fact of this new outpouring of divine guidance and love. We believe they will not labour in vain.


* O Kings of the earth!He Who is the sovereign Lord of all is come. The Kingdom is God's, the omnipotent Protector, the Self-Subsisting. Worship none but God, and, with radiant hearts, lift up your faces unto your Lord, the Lord of all names. This is a Revelation to which whatever you possess can never be compared, could you but know it. We see you rejoicing in that which you have amassed for others, and shutting out yourselves from the worlds which nothing except My Guarded Tablet can reckon. The treasures you have laid up have drawn you far away from your ultimate objective. This ill beseems you, could you but understand it. Wash your hearts from all earthly defilements, and hasten to enter the Kingdom of your Lord, the Creator of earth and heaven, Who caused the world to tremble, and all its peoples to wail, except them that have renounced all things and clung to that which the Hidden Tablet has ordained.

O Kings of the earth! The Most Great Law has been revealed in this Spot, this Scene of transcendent splendour. Every hidden thing has been brought to light, by virtue of the Will of the Supreme Ordainer, He Who has ushered in the Last Hour, through Whom the Moon has been cleft, and every irrevocable decree expounded.

You are but vassals,O Kings of the earth! He Who is the King of kings has appeared, arrayed in His most wondrous glory, and is summoning you unto Himself, the Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting. Take heed lest pride deter you from recognizing the Source of Revelation ; lest the things of this world shut you out as by a veil from Him Who is the Creator of heaven. Arise, and serve Him Who is the Desire of all nations, Who has created you through a word from Him, and ordained you to be, for all time, the emblems of His sovereignty.

Note : The "Returned" Christ is the mentioned King of kings, He has returned under His new name exactly as it has been predicted in Revelation 3 : 12

By the righteousness of God! It is not Our wish to lay hands on your kingdoms. Our mission is to seize and possess the hearts of men. Upon them the eyes of Bahá are fastened. To this testifies the Kingdom of Names, could you but comprehend it. Whoso follows his Lord, will renounce the world and all that is therein; how much greater, then, must be the detachment of Him Who holds so August a station! Forsake your palaces, and haste you to gain admittance into His Kingdom. This, indeed, will profit you both in this world and in the next. To this testifies the Lord of the realm on high, did you but know it.

How great is the blessedness that awaits the king who will arise to aid My Cause in My Kingdom, who will detach himself from all else but Me! Such a king is numbered with the companions of the Crimson Ark, the Ark which God has prepared for the people of Bahá. All must glorify his name, must reverence his station, and aid him to unlock the cities with the keys of My Name, the omnipotent Protector of all that inhabit the visible and invisible kingdoms. Such a king is the very eye of mankind, the luminous ornament on the brow of creation, the fountainhead of blessings unto the whole world. Offer up, O people of Bahá, your substance, nay your very lives, for his assistance.

We have asked nothing from you. For the sake of God We, verily, exhort you, and will be patient as We have been patient in that which has befallen Us at your hands, O concourse of kings!

O Kings of the earth! Give ear unto the Voice of God, calling from this sublime, this fruit-laden Tree, that has sprung out of the Crimson Hill, upon the holy Plain, intoning the words : "There is none other God but He, the Mighty, the All-Powerful, the All-Wise."... Fear God, O concourse of kings, and suffer not yourselves to be deprived of this most sublime grace. Fling away, then, the things you possess, and take fast hold on the Handle of God, the Exalted, the Great. Set your hearts towards the Face of God, and abandon that which your desires have bidden you to follow, and be not of those who perish. Relate unto them, O Servant, the story of Ali (the Bab), when He came unto them with truth, bearing His glorious and weighty Book, and holding in His hands a testimony and proof from God, and holy and blessed tokens from Him. You, however, O Kings, have failed to heed the Remembrance of God in His days and to be guided by the lights which arose and shone forth above the horizon of a resplendent Heaven. You examined not His Cause when so to do would have been better for you than all that the sun shines upon, could you but perceive it. You remained careless until the divines of Persia - those cruel ones - pronounced judgment against Him, and unjustly slew Him. His spirit ascended unto God, and the eyes of the inmates of Paradise and the angels that are near unto Him wept sore by reason of this cruelty. Beware that you be not careless henceforth as you have been careless before. Return, then, unto God, your Maker, and be not of the heedless... My face has come forth from the veils, and shed its radiance upon all that is in heaven and on earth ; and yet, you turned not towards Him, notwithstanding that you were created for Him.

O concourse of kings! Follow, therefore, that which I speak unto you, and hearken unto it with your hearts, and be not of such as have turned aside. For your glory consists not in your sovereignty, but rather in your nearness unto God and your observance of His command as sent down in His holy and preserved Tablets. Should any one of you rule over the whole earth, and over all that lies within it and upon it, its seas, its lands, its mountains, and its plains, and yet be not remembered by God, all these would profit him not, could you but know it... Arise, then, and make steadfast your feet, and make amends for that which has escaped you, and set then yourselves towards His holy Court, on the shore of His mighty Ocean, so that the pearls of knowledge and wisdom, which God has stored up within the shell of His radiant heart, may be revealed unto you... Beware lest you hinder the breeze of God from blowing over your hearts, the breeze through which the hearts of such as have turned unto Him can be quickened...

Beware not to deal unjustly with any one that appeals to you, and enters beneath your shadow. Walk in the fear of God, and be of them that lead a godly life. Rest not on your power, your armies, and treasures. Put your whole trust and confidence in God, Who has created you, and seek His help in all your affairs. Succour comes from Him alone. He succours whom He wills with the hosts of the heavens and of the earth.

Know that the poor are the trust of God in your midst. Watch that you betray not His trust, that you deal not unjustly with them and that you walk not in the ways of the treacherous. You will most certainly be called upon to answer for His trust on the day when the Balance of Justice shall be set, the day when unto every one shall be rendered his due, when the doings of all men, be they rich or poor, shall be weighed.

If you pay no heed unto the counsels which, in peerless and unequivocal language, We have revealed in this Tablet, Divine chastisement shall assail you from every direction, and the sentence of His justice shall be pronounced against you. On that day you shall have no power to resist Him, and shall recognize your own impotence. Have mercy on yourselves and on those beneath you, and judge between them according to the precepts prescribed by God in His most holy and exalted Tablet, a Tablet wherein He has assigned to each and every thing its settled measure, in which He has given, with distinctness, an explanation of all things, and which is in itself a monition unto them that believe in Him.

Examine Our Cause, inquire into the things that have befallen Us, and decide justly between Us and Our enemies, and be of them that act equitably towards their neighbours. If you stay not the hand of the oppressor, if you fail to safeguard the rights of the down-trodden, what right have you then to vaunt yourselves among men? What is it of which you can rightly boast? Is it on your food and your drink that you pride yourselves, on the riches you lay up in your treasuries, on the diversity and the cost of the ornaments with which you deck yourselves? If true glory were to consist in the possession of such perishable things, then the earth on which you walk must needs vaunt itself over you, because it supplies you, and bestows upon you, these very things, by the decree of the Almighty. In its bowels are contained, according to what God has ordained, all that you possess. From it, as a sign of His mercy, you derive your riches. Behold then your state, the thing in which you glory! Would that you could perceive it! Nay, By Him Who holds in His grasp the kingdom of the entire creation! Nowhere do your true and abiding glory reside except in your firm adherence unto the precepts of God, your wholehearted observance of His laws, your resolution to see that they do not remain unenforced, and to pursue steadfastly the right course...

Twenty years have passed, O Kings, during which We have, each day, tasted the agony of a fresh tribulation. No one of them that were before Us has endured the things We have endured. Could you perceive it! They that rose up against Us, have put Us to death, have shed Our blood, have plundered Our property, and violated Our honour. Though aware of most of Our afflictions, you, nevertheless, have failed to stay the hand of the aggressor. For is it not your clear duty to restrain the tyranny of the oppressor, and to deal equitably with your subjects, that your high sense of justice may be fully demonstrated to all mankind?

God has committed into your hands the reins of the government of the people, that you may rule with justice over them, safeguard the rights of the down-trodden, and punish the wrong-doers. If you neglect the duty prescribed unto you by God in His Book, your names shall be numbered with those of the unjust in His sight. Grievous, indeed, will be your error. Cleave to that which your imaginations have devised, and cast behind your backs the commandments of God, the Most Exalted, the Inaccessible, the All-Compelling, the Almighty? Cast away the things you possess, and cling to that which God has bidden you observe. Seek His grace, for he that seeks it treads His straight Path....

The day is approaching when God will have exalted His Cause and magnified His testimony in the eyes of all who are in the heavens and all who are on the earth. Place, in all circumstances, Your whole trust in Your Lord, and fix Your gaze upon Him, and turn away from all them that repudiate His truth. Let God, Your Lord, be Your sufficing Succourer and Helper. We have pledged Ourself to secure Your triumph upon earth and to exalt Our Cause above all men, though no king be found who would turn his face towards You.

O Kings of the earth! We see you increasing every year your expenditures, and laying the burden thereof on your subjects. This, verily, is wholly and grossly unjust. Fear the sighs and tears of this Wronged One, and lay not excessive burdens on your peoples. Do not rob them to rear palaces for yourselves; nay rather choose for them that which you choose for yourselves. Thus We unfold to your eyes that which profits you, if you but perceive. Your people are your treasures. Beware lest your rule violate the commandments of God, and you deliver your wards to the hands of the robber. By them you rule, by their means you subsist, by their aid you conquer. Yet, how disdainfully you look upon them! How strange, how very strange!

Now that you have refused the Most Great Peace, hold fast unto this, the Lesser Peace, that haply you may in some degree better your own condition and that of your dependents.

O Rulers of the earth! Be reconciled among yourselves, that you may need no more armaments save in a measure to safeguard your territories and dominions. Beware lest you disregard the counsel of the All-Knowing, the Faithful.

Be united, O Kings of the earth, for thereby will the tempest of discord be stilled amongst you, and your people find rest, if you be of them that comprehend. Should any one among you take up arms against another, rise all against him, for this is nothing but manifest justice.

The one true God, exalted be His glory, has ever regarded, and will continue to regard, the hearts of men as His own, His exclusive possession. All else, whether pertaining to land or sea, whether riches or glory, He has bequeathed unto the kings and rulers of the earth. From the beginning that has no beginning the ensign proclaiming the words : "He does whatsoever He wills" has been unfurled in all its splendour before His Manifestation. What mankind needs in this day is obedience unto them that are in authority, and a faithful adherence to the cord of wisdom. The instruments which are essential to the immediate protection, the security and assurance of the human race have been entrusted to the hands, and lie in the grasp, of the governors of human society. This is the wish of God and His decree.... We cherish the hope that one of the kings of the earth will, for the sake of God, arise for the triumph of this wronged, this oppressed people. Such a king will be eternally extolled and glorified. God has prescribed unto this people the duty of aiding whosoever will aid them, of serving his best interests, and of demonstrating to him their abiding loyalty. They who follow Me must strive, under all circumstances, to promote the welfare of whosoever will arise for the triumph of My Cause, and must at all times prove their devotion and fidelity unto him. Happy is the man that hearkens and observes My counsel. Woe unto him that fails to fulfil My wish.

* Appeal to : NAPOLEON III

O King of Paris! * Tell the priest to ring the bells no longer. By God, the True One! The Most Mighty Bell has appeared in the form of Him Who is the Most Great Name, and the fingers of the will of Your Lord, the Most Exalted, the Most High, toll it out in the heaven of Immortality, in His name, the All-Glorious. Thus have the mighty verses of Your Lord been again sent down unto you, that you may arise to remember God, the Creator of earth and heaven, in these days when all the tribes of the earth have mourned, and the foundations of the cities have trembled, and the dust of irreligion has enwrapped all men, except such as God, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise, was pleased to spare. Say : He Who is the Unconditioned is come, in the clouds of light, that He may quicken all created things with the breeze of His Name, the Most Merciful, and unify the world, and gather all men around this Table which has been sent down from heaven. Beware that you deny not the favour of God after it has been sent down unto you. Better is this for you than that which you possess; for that which is yours perishes, while that which is with God endures. He, in truth, ordains what He pleases. Verily, the breezes of forgiveness have been wafted from the direction of your Lord, the God of Mercy; whoso turns there unto, shall be cleansed of his sins, and of all pain and sickness. Happy the man that has turned towards them, and woe betide him that has turned aside.

Were you to incline your inner ear unto all created things, you would hear : "The Ancient of Days is come in His great glory!" Everything celebrates the praise of its Lord. Some have known God and remember Him ; others remember Him, yet know Him not. Thus have We set down Our decree in a perspicuous Tablet.

Give ear, O King, unto the Voice that calls from the Fire which burns in this verdant Tree, on this Sinai which has been raised above the hallowed and snow-white Spot, beyond the Everlasting City : "Verily, there is none other God but Me, the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful!" We, in truth, have sent Him Whom We aided with the Holy Spirit (Jesus Christ) that He may announce unto you this Light that has shone forth from the horizon of the will of your Lord, the Most Exalted, the All-Glorious, and Whose signs have been revealed in the West. Set your faces towards Him (Baha'u'llah) on this Day which God has exalted above all other days, and whereon the All-Merciful has shed the splendour of His effulgent glory upon all who are in heaven and all who are on earth. Arise to serve God and help His Cause. He, verily, will assist you with the hosts of the seen and unseen, and will set you king over all that whereon the sun rises. Your Lord, in truth, is the All-Powerful, the Almighty.

The breezes of the Most Merciful have passed over all created things; happy the man that has discovered their fragrance, and set himself towards them with a sound heart. Attire your temple with the ornament of My Name, and your tongue with remembrance of Me, and your heart with love for Me, the Almighty, the Most High. We have desired for you nothing except that which is better for you than what you do possess and all the treasures of the earth. Your Lord, verily, is knowing, informed of all. Arise, in My Name, amongst My servants, and say : "O peoples of the earth! Turn yourselves towards Him Who has turned towards you. He, verily, is the Face of God amongst you, and His Testimony and His Guide unto you. He has come to you with signs which none can produce." The voice of the Burning Bush is raised in the midmost heart of the world, and the Holy Spirit calls aloud among the nations : "Lo, the Desired One is come with manifest dominion!"

O King! The stars of the heaven of knowledge have fallen, they who seek to establish the truth of My Cause through the things they possess, and who make mention of God in My Name. And yet, when I came unto them in My glory, they turned aside. They, indeed, are of the fallen. This is, truly, that which the Spirit of God (Jesus Christ) had announced, when He came with truth unto you, He with Whom the Jewish doctors disputed, till at last they perpetrated what has made the Holy Spirit to lament, and the tears of them that have near access to God to flow...

O King! We heard the words that you uttered in answer to the Czar of Russia, concerning the decision made regarding the war (Crimean War). Your Lord, verily, knows, is informed of all. You did say : "I lay asleep upon my couch, when the cry of the oppressed, who were drowned in the Black Sea, wakened me." This is what we heard you say, and, verily, your Lord is witness unto what I say. We testify that that which wakened you was not their cry but the promptings of your own passions, for We tested you, and found you wanting. Comprehend the meaning of My words, and be of the discerning. It is not Our wish to address you words of condemnation, out of regard for the dignity We conferred upon you in this mortal life. We, verily, have chosen courtesy, and made it the true mark of such as are near unto Him. Courtesy, is, in truth, a raiment which fits all men, whether young or old. Well is it with him that adorns his temple therewith, and woe unto him who is deprived of this great bounty. Had you been sincere in your words, you would have not cast behind your back the Book of God, when it was sent unto you by Him Who is the Almighty, the All-Wise. We have proved you through it, and found you other than that which you did profess. Arise, and make amends for that which escaped you. Before long the world and all that you possess will perish, and the kingdom will remain unto God, your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of old. It behoves you not to conduct your affairs according to the dictates of your desires. Fear the sighs of this Wronged One, and shield Him from the darts of such as act unjustly.

For what you have done, your kingdom shall be thrown into confusion, and your empire shall pass from your hands, as a punishment for that which you have wrought. Then will you know how you have plainly erred. Commotions shall seize all the people in that land, unless you arise to help this Cause, and follow Him Who is the Spirit of God (Jesus Christ) in this, the Straight Path. Has your pomp made you proud? By My Life! It shall not endure ; nay, it shall soon pass away, unless you hold fast by this firm Cord. We see abasement hastening after you, while you are of the heedless. It behoves you when you hear His Voice calling from the seat of glory to cast away all that you possess, and cry out : "Here am I, O Lord of all that is in heaven and all that is on earth!"

O King! We were in Iraq, when the hour of parting arrived. At the bidding of the King of Islam (Sultan of Turkey) We set Our steps in his direction. Upon Our arrival, there befell Us at the hands of the malicious that which the books of the world can never adequately recount. Thereupon the inmates of Paradise, and they that dwell within the retreats of holiness, lamented; and yet the people are wrapped in a thick veil!...

More grievous became Our plight from day to day, nay, from hour to hour, until they took Us forth from Our prison and made Us, with glaring injustice, enter the Most Great Prison...

Know of a truth that your subjects are God's trust amongst you. Watch, therefore, over them as you watch over your own selves. Beware that you allow not wolves to become the shepherds of the fold, or pride and conceit to deter you from turning unto the poor and the desolate.

Arise, in My name, above the horizon of renunciation, and set, then, your face towards the Kingdom, at the bidding of your Lord, the Lord of strength and of might.

Adorn the body of Your kingdom with the raiment of My name, and arise, then, to teach My Cause. Better is this for you than that which you possess. God will, thereby, exalt your name among all the kings. Potent is He over all things. Walk amongst men in the name of God, and by the power of His might, that you may show forth His signs amidst the peoples of the earth...

Regard the world as a man's body, which is afflicted with divers ailments, and the recovery of which depends upon the harmonizing of all of its component elements. Gather around that which We have prescribed unto you, and walk not in the ways of such as create dissension. Meditate on the world and the state of its people. He, for Whose sake the world was called into being, has been imprisoned in the most desolate of cities (Akka), by reason of that which the hands of the wayward have wrought. From the horizon of His prison-city He summons mankind unto the Dayspring of God, the Exalted, the Great. Exulted are you over the treasures you do possess, knowing they shall perish? Rejoice in that you rule a span of earth, when the whole world, in the estimation of the people of Baha, is worth as much as the black in the eye of a dead ant? Abandon it unto such as have set their affections upon it, and turn unto Him Who is the Desire of the world. Whither are gone the proud and their palaces? Gaze into their tombs, that you may profit by this example, inasmuch as We made it a lesson unto every beholder. Were the breezes of Revelation to seize you, You would flee the world, and turn unto the Kingdom, and would expend all you possess, that you may draw near unto this sublime Vision.


O Czar of Russia! Incline your ear unto the voice of God, the King, the Holy, and turn unto Paradise, the Spot wherein abides He Who, among the Concourse on high, bears the most excellent titles, and Who, in the kingdom of creation, is called by the name of God, the Effulgent, the All-Glorious. Beware lest your desire deter you from turning towards the face of your Lord, the Compassionate, the Most Merciful. We, verily, have heard the thing for which you did supplicate your Lord, while secretly communing with Him.

Wherefore, the breeze of My loving-kindness wafted forth, and the sea of My mercy surged, and We answered you in truth. Your Lord, verily, is the All-Knowing, the All-Wise. While I lay chained and fettered in the prison, one of your ministers extended Me his aid. Wherefore has God ordained for you a station which the knowledge of none can comprehend except His knowledge. Beware lest you barter away this sublime station... Beware lest your sovereignty withhold you from Him Who is the Supreme Sovereign. He, verily, is come with His Kingdom, and all the atoms cry aloud : "Lo! The Lord is come in His great majesty!" He Who is the Father is come, and the Son (Jesus), in the holy vale, cried out : "Here am I, here am I, O Lord, My God!" while Sinai circles round the House, and the Burning Bush called aloud : "The All-Bounteous is come mounted upon the clouds! Blessed is he that draws near unto Him, and woe betide them that are far away."

Arise amongst men in the name of this all-compelling Cause, and summon, then, the nations unto God, the Exalted, the Great. Be not of them who called upon God by one of His names, but who, when He Who is the Object of all names appeared, denied Him and turned aside from Him, and, in the end, pronounced sentence against Him with manifest injustice. Consider and call to mind the days whereon the Spirit of God (Jesus) appeared, and Herod gave judgment against Him. God, however, aided Him with the hosts of the unseen, and protected Him with truth, and sent Him down unto another land, according to His promise. He, verily, ordains what He pleases. Your Lord truly preserves whom He wills, be he in the midst of the seas, or in the maw of the serpent, or beneath the sword of the oppressor...

Again I say : Hearken unto My Voice that calls from My prison that it may acquaint you with the things that have befallen My Beauty, at the hands of them that are the manifestations of My glory, and that you may perceive how great has been My patience, notwithstanding My might, and how immense My forbearance, notwithstanding My power. By My Life! Could you but know the things sent down by My Pen, and discover the treasures of My Cause, and the pearls of My mysteries which lie hid in the seas of My names and in the goblets of My words, you would, in your love for My name, and in your longing for My glorious and sublime Kingdom, lay down your life in My path. Know that though My body be beneath the swords of My foes, and My limbs be beset with incalculable afflictions, yet My spirit is filled with a gladness with which all the joys of the earth can never compare.

Set your heart towards Him Who is the Point of adoration for the world, and say : O peoples of the earth! Have you denied the One in Whose path He Who came with the truth, bearing the announcement of your Lord, the Exalted, the Great, suffered martyrdom? Say : This is an Announcement whereat the hearts of the Prophets and Messengers have rejoiced. This is the One Whom the heart of the world remembers and is promised in the Books of God, the Mighty, the All-Wise. The hands of the Messengers were, in their desire to meet Me, upraised towards God, the Mighty, the Glorified.... Some lamented in their separation from Me, others endured hardships in My path, and still others laid down their lives for the sake of My (spiritual) Beauty, could you but know it. Say : I, verily, have not sought to extol My Own Self, but rather God Himself were you to judge fairly. Nothing can be seen in Me except God and His Cause, could you but perceive it. I am the One Whom the tongue of Isaiah has extolled, the One with Whose name both the Torah and the Evangel were adorned.... Blessed be the king whose sovereignty has withheld him not from his Sovereign, and who has turned unto God with his heart. He, verily, is accounted of those that have attained unto that which God, the Mighty, the All-Wise has willed. Before long will such a one find himself numbered with the monarchs of the realms of the Kingdom. Your Lord is, in truth, potent over all things. He gives what He wills to whomsoever He wills, and withholds what He pleases from whomsoever He wills. He, verily, is the All-Powerful, the Almighty.

* Appeal to : QUEEN VICTORIA

O Queen in London! Incline your ear unto the voice of your Lord, the Lord of all mankind, calling from the Divine Lote-Tree: Verily, no God is there but Me, the Almighty, the All-Wise! Cast away all that is on earth, and attire the head of your kingdom with the crown of the remembrance of your Lord, the All-Glorious. He, in truth, has come unto the world in His most great glory, and all that has been mentioned in the Gospel has been fulfilled. The land of Syria has been honoured by the footsteps of its Lord, the Lord of all men, and North and South are both inebriated with the wine of His presence. Blessed is the man that inhaled the fragrance of the Most Merciful, and turned unto the Dawning-Place of His Beauty, in this resplendent Dawn. The Mosque of Aqsa vibrates through the breezes of its Lord, the All-Glorious while Batha (Mecca) trembles at the voice of God, the exalted, the Most High. Whereupon every single stone of them celebrates the praise of the Lord, through this Great Name.

Lay aside your desire, and set then your heart towards your Lord, the Ancient of Days. We make mention of you for the sake of God, and desire that your name may be exalted through Your remembrance of God, the Creator of earth and heaven. He, verily, is witness unto that which I say. We have been informed that you have forbidden the trading in slaves, both men and women. This, verily, is what God has enjoined in this wondrous Revelation. God has, truly, destined a reward for you, because of this. He, verily, will pay the doer of good his due recompense, were you to follow what has been sent unto you by Him Who is the All-Knowing, the All-Informed. As to him who turns aside, and swells with pride, after that the clear tokens have come unto him, from the Revealer of signs, his work shall God bring to nothing. He, in truth, has power over all things. Man's actions are acceptable after his having recognized (the Manifestation). He that turns aside from the True One is indeed the most veiled amongst His creatures. Thus has it been decreed by Him Who is the Almighty, the Most Powerful.

We have also heard that you have entrusted the reins of counsel into the hands of the representatives of the people. You, indeed, have done well, for thereby the foundations of the edifice of your affairs will be strengthened, and the hearts of all that are beneath your shadow, whether high or low, will be tranquillized. It behoves them, however, to be trustworthy among His servants, and to regard themselves as the representatives of all that dwell on earth. This is what counsels them, in this Tablet, He Who is the Ruler, the All-Wise... Blessed is he that enters the assembly for the sake of God, and judges between men with pure justice. He, indeed, is of the blissful...

Turn unto God and say : O my Sovereign Lord! I am but a vassal of yours, and you are, in truth, the King of Kings. I have lifted my suppliant hands unto the heaven of Your grace and Your bounties. Send down, then, upon me from the clouds of Your generosity that which will rid me of all save You, and draw me near unto Yourself. I beseech You, O my Lord, by Your name, which You have made the king of names, and the manifestation of Yourself to all who are in heaven and on earth, to rend asunder the veils that have intervened between me and my recognition of the Dawning-Place of Your signs and the Day Spring of Your Revelation. You are, verily, the Almighty, the All-Powerful, the All-Bounteous. Deprive me not, O my Lord, of the fragrances of the Robe of Your mercy in Your days, and write down for me that which You have written down for your handmaidens who have believed in You and in Your signs, and have recognized You, and set their hearts towards the horizon of Your Cause. You are truly the Lord of the worlds and of those who show mercy the Most Merciful. Assist me, then, O my God, to remember You amongst Your handmaidens, and to aid Your Cause in Your lands. Accept, then, that which has escaped me when the light of Your countenance shone forth. You, indeed, have power over all things. Glory be to You, O You in Whose hand is the kingdom of the heavens and of the earth.


O King of Berlin! Give ear unto the Voice calling from this manifest Temple: Verily, there is none other God but Me, the Everlasting, the Peerless, the Ancient of Days. Take heed lest pride debar you from recognizing the Dayspring of Divine Revelation, lest earthly desires shut you out, as by a veil, from the Lord of the Throne above and of the earth below. Thus counsels you the Pen of the Most High. He, verily, is the Most Gracious, the All-Bountiful. Do you remember the one whose power transcended your power (Napoleon III), and whose station excels your station. Where is he? Where are gone the things he possesses? Take warning, and be not of them that are fast asleep. He it was who cast the Tablet of God behind him, when We made known unto him what the hosts of tyranny had caused Us to suffer. Wherefore, disgrace assailed him from all sides, and he went down to dust in great loss. Think deeply, O King, concerning him, and concerning them who, like unto you, have conquered cities and ruled over men. The All-Merciful brought them down from their palaces to their graves. Be warned, be of them who reflect...

O banks of the Rhine! We have seen you covered with gore, inasmuch as the swords of retribution were drawn against you ; and you shall have another turn. And We hear the lamentations of Berlin, though she be today in conspicuous glory.

* Appeal to : FRANCIS JOSEPH

O Emperor of Austria! He who is the Dayspring of God's Light dwelt in the prison of Akka, at the time when you did set forth to visit the Aqsa Mosque (Jerusalem). You passed Him by, and inquired not about Him, by Whom every house is exalted, an every lofty gate unlocked. We, verily, made it (Jerusalem) a place whereunto the world should turn, that they might remember Me, and yet you have rejected Him Who is the Object of this remembrance, when He appeared with the Kingdom of God, your Lord and the Lord of the worlds. We have been with you at all times, and found you clinging unto the Branch and heedless of the Root. Your Lord, verily, is a witness unto what I say. We grieved to see you circle round Our Name, while unaware of Us, though We were before your face. Open your eyes, that you may behold this glorious Vision, and recognize Him Whom you invoke in the daytime and in the night-season, and gaze on the Light that shines above this luminous Horizon.

* Appeal to : SULTAN ABDU'l AZIZ

Hearken, O King, to the speech of Him that speaks the truth, Him that does not ask you to recompense Him with the things God has chosen to bestow upon you, Him Who unerringly treads the straight Path. He it is Who summons you unto God, your Lord, Who shows you the right course, the way that leads to true felicity, that haply you may be of them with whom it shall be well.

Beware, O King, that you gather not around you such ministers as follow the desires of a corrupt inclination, as have cast behind their backs that which has been committed into their hands and manifestly betrayed their trust. Be bounteous to others as God has been bounteous to you, and abandon not the interests of your people to the mercy of such ministers as these. Lay not aside the fear of God, and be of them that act uprightly. Gather around you those ministers from whom you can perceive the fragrance of faith and of justice, and take counsel with them, and choose whatever is best in your sight, and be of them that act generously.

Know for a certainty that whoso disbelieves in God is neither trustworthy nor truthful. This, indeed, is the truth, the undoubted truth. He that acts treacherously towards God will, also, act treacherously towards his king. Nothing whatever can deter such a man from evil, nothing can hinder him from betraying his neighbour, nothing can induce him to walk uprightly.

Take heed that you resign not the reins of the affairs of your state into the hands of others, and repose not your confidence in ministers unworthy of your trust, and be not of them that live in heedlessness. Shun them whose hearts are turned away from you, and place not your confidence in them, and entrust them not with your affairs and the affairs of such as profess your faith. Beware that you allow not the wolf to become the shepherd of God's flock, and surrender not the fate of His loved ones to the mercy of the malicious. Expect not that they who violate the ordinances of God will be trustworthy or sincere in the faith they profess. Avoid them, and preserve strict guard over yourself, lest their devices and mischief hurt you. Turn away from them, and fix your gaze upon God, your Lord, the All-Glorious, the Most Bountiful. He that gives up himself wholly to God, God shall, assuredly, be with him; and he that places his complete trust in God, God shall, verily, protect him from whatsoever may harm him, and shield him from the wickedness of every evil plotter.

Were you to incline your ear unto My speech and observe My counsel, God would exalt you to so eminent a position that the designs of no man on the whole earth could ever touch or hurt you. Observe, O King, with your inmost heart and with your whole being, the precepts of God, and walk not in the paths of the oppressor. Seize, and hold firmly within the grasp of your might, the reins of the affairs of your people, and examine in person whatever pertains unto them. Let nothing escape you, for therein lies the highest good.

Render thanks unto God for having chosen you out of the whole world, and made you king over them that profess your faith. It well beseem you to appreciate the wondrous favours with which God has favoured you, and to magnify continually His name. You can best praise Him if you love His loved ones, and do safeguard and protect His servants from the mischief of the treacherous, that none may any longer oppress them. You should, moreover, arise to enforce the law of God amongst them, that you may be of those who are firmly established in His law.

Should you cause rivers of justice to spread their waters amongst your subjects, God would surely aid you with the hosts of the unseen and of the seen and would strengthen you in your affairs. No God is there but Him. All creation and its empire are His. Unto Him return the works of the faithful.

Place not your reliance on your treasures. Put your whole confidence in the grace of God, your Lord. Let Him be your trust in whatever you doe, and be of them that have submitted themselves to His Will. Let Him be your helper and enrich yourself with His treasures, for with Him are the treasuries of the heavens and of the earth. He bestows them upon whom He will, and from whom He will He withholds them. There is none other God but Him, the All-Possessing, the All-Praised. All are but paupers at the door of His mercy; all are helpless before the revelation of His sovereignty, and beseech His favours.

Overstep not the bounds of moderation, and deal justly with them that serve you. Bestow upon them according to their needs and not to the extent that will enable them to lay up riches for themselves, to deck their persons, to embellish their homes, to acquire the things that are of no benefit unto them, and to be numbered with the extravagant. Deal with them with undeviating justice, so that none among them may either suffer want, or be pampered with luxuries. This is but manifest justice.

Allow not the abject to rule over and dominate them who are noble and worthy of honour, and suffer not the high-minded to be at the mercy of the contemptible and worthless, for this is what We observed upon Our arrival in the City (Constantinople), and to it We bear witness. We found among its inhabitants some who were possessed of an affluent fortune and lived in the midst of excessive riches, while others were in dire want and abject poverty. This ill beseems your sovereignty, and is unworthy of your rank.

Let My counsel be acceptable to you, and strive to rule with equity among men, that God may exalt your name and spread abroad the fame of your justice in all the world. Beware lest you aggrandize your ministers at the expense of your subjects. Fear the sighs of the poor and of the upright in heart who, at every break of day, bewail their plight, and be unto them a benignant sovereign. They, verily, are your treasures on earth. It behoves you, therefore, to safeguard your treasures from the assaults of them who wish to rob you. Inquire into their affairs, and ascertain, every year, nay every month, their condition, and be not of them that are careless of their duty.

Set before your eyes God's unerring Balance and, as one standing in His Presence, weigh in that Balance your actions every day, every moment of your life. Bring yourself to account before you are summoned to a reckoning, on the Day when no man shall have strength to stand for fear of God, the Day when the hearts of the heedless ones shall be made to tremble.

It behoves every king to be as bountiful as the sun, which fosters the growth of all beings, and gives to each its due, whose benefits are not inherent in itself, but are ordained by Him Who is the Most Powerful, the Almighty. The king should be as generous, as liberal in his mercy as the clouds, the outpourings of whose bounty are showered upon every land, by the behest of Him Who is the Supreme Ordainer, the All-Knowing.

Have a care not to entrust your affairs of state entirely into another's hands. None can discharge your functions better than your own self. Thus do We make clear unto you Our words of wisdom, and send down upon you that which can enable you to pass over from the left hand of oppression to the right hand of justice, and approach the resplendent ocean of His favours. Such is the path which the kings that were before you have trodden, they that acted equitably towards their subjects, and walked in the ways of undeviating justice.

You are God's shadow on earth. Strive, therefore, to act in such a manner as befits so eminent, so august a station. If you do depart from following the things We have caused to descend upon you and taught you, you will, assuredly, be derogating from that great and priceless honour. Return, then, and cleave wholly unto God, and cleanse your heart from the world and all its vanities, and suffer not the love of any stranger to enter and dwell therein. Not until you do purify your heart from every trace of such love can the brightness of the light of God shed its radiance upon it, for to none has God given more than one heart. This, verily, has been decreed and written down in His ancient Book. And as the human heart, as fashioned by God, is one and undivided, it behoves you to take heed that its affections be, also, one and undivided. Cleave, therefore, with the whole affection of your heart, unto His love, and withdraw it from the love of any one besides Him, that He may aid you to immerse yourself in the ocean of His unity, and enable you to become a true upholder of His oneness. God is My witness. My sole purpose in revealing to you these words is to sanctify you from the transitory things of the earth, and aid you to enter the realm of everlasting glory, that you may, by the leave of God, be of them that abide and rule therein....

Let your ear be attentive, O King, to the words We have addressed to you. Let the oppressor desist from his tyranny, and cut off the perpetrators of injustice from among them that profess your faith. By the righteousness of God! The tribulations We have sustained are such that any pen that recounts them cannot but be overwhelmed with anguish. No one of them that truly believe and uphold the unity of God can bear the burden of their recital. So great have been Our sufferings that even the eyes of Our enemies have wept over Us, and beyond them those of every discerning person. And to all these trials have We been subjected, in spite of Our action in approaching you, and in bidding the people to enter beneath your shadow, that you might be a stronghold unto them that believe in and uphold the unity of God.

Have I, O King, ever disobeyed you? Have I, at any time, transgressed any of your laws? Can any of your ministers that represented you in Iraq produce any proof that can establish my disloyalty to you? No, by Him Who is the Lord of all worlds! Not for one short moment did We rebel against you, or against any of your ministers. Never, God willing, shall We revolt against you, though We be exposed to trials more severe than any We suffered in the past.

In the day-time and in the night season, at evening and at morning, We pray to God on your behalf, that He may graciously aid you to be obedient unto Him and to observe His commandment, that He may shield you from the hosts of the evil ones. Do, therefore, as it pleases you, and treat Us as befits your station and beseems your sovereignty. Be not forgetful of the law of God in whatever you desire to achieve, now or in the days to come. Say : Praise be to God, the Lord of all worlds !
