“O thou who art attracted by the Fragrances of God!…”
O thou who art attracted by the Fragrances of God!
Thank God for giving and granting thee “sight of
eyes” (i.e., a son) whereby thy bosom becomes dilated
and thy heart rejoiced.
Then make his name “Ruhullah” (i.e., the Spirit of
God), so that the Spirit of thy Lord, the Merciful of
the Merciful, will confirm him.
O maid-servant of God! Know, verily, that the one
who bore similar name (i.e., Ruhullah), son of Varga,
was martyred in the path of God in the twelfth year
of his life. While he was beneath the unsheathed sword
he called out “Ya Baha-el-ABHA!” until he was killed
in the path of God.
We called thy son by this noble name so that he may
have a great station in the Kingdom of God.
