The second graphic we are publishing for the anniversary of the unsealing and reading of the Kitáb-i-‘Ahd is a graphic look at the mixture of languages in the Kitáb-i-Ahd.

Fifty percent of Bahá’u’lláh’s writings are in Arabic, and the other fifty percent are in Persian or a mixture of Persian and Arabic.

The Kitáb-i-‘Ahd was revealed in a mixture of Persian and Arabic.

In the following graphics you will see which paragraphs are in which language, you will see a breakdown of the Persian and Arabic in paragraph 9, which we have just reposted, and you will become familiar with important terms in both Persian and Arabic.
