ধন্য সেই স্থল, সেই গৃহ, সেই স্থান, সেই নগর, সেই হৃদয়, সেই পর্বত, সেই আশ্রয়, সেই গুহা, সেই উপত্যকা, সেই ভূমি, সেই সাগর, সেই দ্বীপ, সেই তৃণভূমি যেখানে প্রভুর নামগান করা হয়, যেখানে প্রভুর গুনগান করা হয়।

বাহাউল্লাহ

طُوبَى لِمَحَلٍّ وَلِبَيْتٍ وَلِمَقَامٍ وَلِمَدِينَةٍ وَلِقَلْبٍ وَلِجَبَلٍ وَلِكَهْفٍ وَلِغَارٍ وَلِأَوْدِيَةٍ وَلِبَرٍّ وَلِبَحْرٍ وَلِجَزِيرَةٍ وَلِدَسْكِرَةٍ اِرْتَفَعَ فِيهَا ذِكْرُ اللهِ وَثَنَائُهُ

« Blessed is the spot » is a passage from a Tablet of Baháʼuʼlláh to one of His nineteen Apostles, Mírzá ʻAlí-Muḥammad, known more commonly as Ibn-i-Aṣdaq. This iconic excerpt, first translated by Shoghi Effendi in The Advent of Divine Justice, serves as an important reminder to us that, wherever we may be, that spot will be blessed if we mention God and glorify His praise there.

In the original Arabic text, the “in” sound you hear at the end of every noun is a short vowel mark called a “kasratain.” In this context, this mark indicates that the noun is indefinite. So, rather than refer to a specific sea, land, island, and so on, Baháʼuʼlláh is saying that any sea, land, or island where the mention of God is made and His praise is glorified will be blessed.
