1 The Sweet-smelling Savour Of My Garment #4






This is an allusion to the story of Joseph in the Qur'an and the Old
Testament, in which Joseph's garment, brought by his brothers to Jacob,
their father, enabled Jacob to identify his beloved long-lost son. The
metaphor of the fragrant garment is frequently used in the Baha'i
Writings to refer to the recognition of the Manifestation of God and His
Revelation.

Baha'u'llah, in one of His Tablets, describes Himself as the Divine
Joseph Who has been bartered away by the heedless for the most paltry
of prices. The Bab, in the Qayyumu'l-Asma, identifies Baha'u'llah as the
true Joseph and forecasts the ordeals that He would endure at the hands
of His treacherous brother (see note 190). Likewise, Shoghi Effendi draws
a parallel between the intense jealousy which the preeminence of
'Abdu'l-Baha had aroused in His half-brother, Mirza Muhammad-'Ali, and the
deadly envy which the superior excellence of Joseph had kindled in the
hearts of his brothers.
