O thou lady of the Kingdom! Praise thou God that in this age, the age of the dispensation of Bahá’u’lláh, thou hast been awakened, hast been made aware of the Manifestation of the Lord of Hosts.

The coming of the Son of Man is 199 like the coming of a thief into a house, the owner of which is utterly unaware.’
