Happy Riḍván everyone!!!!! See MoreSee Less
With the advent of the First Day of Riḍván in this auspicious Baháʼí year—a year consecrated to the memory of ʻAbdu’l-Bahá, and which marks the inauguration of the Third Epoch of His Divine Plan—we are delighted to present to you our longest selection yet, the Long Healing Prayer of Baháʼuʼlláh. The power of this lengthy supplication can be seen in its final entreaty: “And again do I beseech Thee . . . to protect the bearer of this blessed Tablet, and whoso reciteth it, and whoso cometh upon it, and whoso passeth around the house wherein it is. Heal Thou, then, by it every sick, diseased and poor one, from every tribulation and distress, from every loathsome affliction and sorrow, and guide Thou by it whosoever desireth to enter upon the paths of Thy guidance, and the ways of Thy forgiveness and grace.”The Long Healing Prayer is especially fascinating from a linguistic perspective, in that it is filled with novel names and titles for God—the products of innovative combinations of certain roots and forms—that did not previously exist in Arabic. Moreover, the prayer, ostensibly revealed only in Arabic, in fact includes a number of Persian words (ján, “my Soul”; jánán, “my Beloved”; khuwán, “table”). According to a message from the Universal House of Justice, this is probably the prayer Shoghi Effendi was referring to when he stated that “the Healing Prayer,” along with a few other supplications, “have been invested by Bahá’u’lláh with a special potency and significance.” See MoreSee Less
There are two supplementary materials for this week’s Centenary Post "O Thou who art turning thy face towards God". For this week’s theme exploring one of the many facets of our beloved ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in preparation for the commemoration of His Ascension on November 27, 2021, we decided to highlight His superhuman correspondence, throughout the seven decades of His earthly life. The first post is an infographic showing the volume of Tablets and letters written by all three Central Figures of the Bahá’í Faith, Bahá’u’lláh, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá and Shoghi Effendi. You can find the links below to the Andalib journal article and the 2002 letter from the Department of the Secretariat that were used in creating this infographic: Andalib articlebahai-library.com/uhj_bahai_archives_texts2002 Letter from the Department of the Secretariatbahai-library.com/uhj_numbers_sacred_writings See MoreSee Less
