In a Tablet, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá compares teachers who are
involved with the spiritual education of the child to the
“spiritual father” who “endoweth his child with everlasting life”.
He explains that this is the reason that “teachers are listed
among the heirs” in the “Law of God”.
Bahá’u’lláh specifies the conditions under which the
teacher inherits and the share he or she receives (Q and A 33).
