“O thou who art attracted by the Fragrances of God!…”
O thou who art attracted by the Fragrances of God!
Verily, I read thy interesting letter, understood from
it an excellent meaning and pray to God to augment
thy love, knowledge, certainty and confidence.
O maid-servant of God! Everything of importance
in this world demands the close attention of its seeker.
The one in pursuit of anything must undergo difficulties
and hardships until the object in view is attained and
the great success is obtained. This is the case of things
pertaining to the world. How much higher is that
which concerns the Supreme Concourse! That Cause
involves every favor, glory and eternal bliss in the world
of God. The seeker after the great guidance and eternal
happiness necessarily will encounter difficulties. He
must be patient under such circumstances. The chosen
believers of the past quaffed the chalice of suffering and
sank deep in the ocean of trials until they attained to
that blessed station and sublime beatitude.
Verily, I pray to God to aid thy children in the
service of the Word of God, the furtherance of His
Covenant and the spread of His fragrances, for this is
the great happiness of this life and that to come.
I ask God to confirm the maid-servants of God, Mrs.
….…. and Mrs. ….…., in spirituality and to
make them firm in turning unto the Center of Mercy
and to make them sincere unto His glorious Face.
Convey my greetings to Madam ….…. and say
to her: “Be not sorrowful on account of separation;
verily, thy Lord is of more good to thee than anything
in the material world. He is the best companion and
the best friend and will accompany three under all
Convey my regards to the maid-servant of God,
….…., and say to her: “Be rejoiced, O maid-servant
of God, through the fragrances which have perfumed
the world. Seek an abundant share from this
table which hath descended from heaven.”
O maid-servant of God! It is necessary for every
sould who believeth in her Lord to send Abdul-Baha a
letter of acknowledgement in the Oneness of God.
