“83: In this holy Cause the question of orphans hath the utmost importance….”
In this holy Cause the question of orphans hath the utmost importance.
The greatest consideration must be shown towards orphans; they must be taught,
trained and educated. The Teachings of Bahá’u’lláh, especially, must by all
means be given to them as far as is possible.
I supplicate God that thou mayest become a kind parent to orphaned
children, quickening them with the fragrances of the Holy Spirit, so that they
will attain the age of maturity as true servants of the world of humanity and
as bright candles in the assemblage of mankind.
(“Selections from the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá”, Sec. 112, p. 138)
