In the Name of God, the Exalted, the Most High

The source of all good is trust in God, submission unto His command, and contentment with His holy will and pleasure.


هُوَ العَلِيُّ الأَعْلَى

أَصْلُ كُلِّ الخَيْرِ هُوَ الاعْتِمَادُ عَلَى اللهِ وَالانْقِيَادُ لِأَمْرِهِ وَالرِّضَاءُ لِمَرْضَاتِهِ

حضرة بهاءالله

The Aṣl-i-Kullu’l-Khayr, or Words of Wisdom, are a series of powerful aphorisms revealed by Baháʼuʼlláh in Arabic, which encapsulate the most essential elements of various virtues and vices. Similar to the Hidden Words, these instructive maxims are meant to provide us with a roadmap for living a spiritual life that exemplifies the Baháʼí teachings.
