3. Functions of the Trustees of Ḥuqúqu’lláh and the Spiritual Assemblies

Extracts from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh

82. “He is the True, the Faithful!…”

He is the True, the Faithful!
O Abu’l-Ḥasan! 1 God willing thou art sustained by His lordly favours and art occupied with such deeds as befit His Day. Regard faith as a tree: its fruits and leaves, its branches and boughs are, and ever have been, truthfulness, trustworthiness, rectitude of conduct, and forbearance. Be assured of God’s sustaining grace, and engage thyself with service to His Faith. We have designated thee a trustee of God, have bidden thee to observe that which shall exalt the Cause of Him Who is the Lord of the worlds, and have bestowed upon thee the right to receive Ḥuqúqu’lláh. Consort with the people in a spirit of amity and concord, and be unto them a loyal counsellor and a loving companion. Content thyself then with that which We have ordained for thee.
1. Known as Jináb-i-Amín, Trustee of the Ḥuqúq in the days of Bahá’u’lláh.   [ Back To Reference]
