Nothing whatever can, in this Day, inflict a greater harm upon this Cause than dissension and strife, contention, estrangement and apathy, among the loved ones of God.


ضرّی از برایِ اين امر اليوم اعظم از فساد و نزاع و جدال و كدورت و برودت ما بينِ احباب نبوده و نیست

حضرت بهاءالله

This is a passage from a Tablet of Baháʼuʼlláh to Jamál-i-Burújirdí, translated by Shoghi Effendi and published in Gleanings from the Writings of Baháʼuʼlláh V (selection no. 5). The fuller excerpt in Gleanings is filled with other powerful, iconic passages of this sort that we hope to cover in future videos.
