108 The Bayan #77






The Bayan, the Mother Book of the Babi Dispensation, is the title given by

the Bab to His Book of Laws, and it is also applied to the entire body of

His Writings. The Persian Bayan is the major doctrinal work and principal

repository of the laws ordained by the Bab. The Arabic Bayan is parallel

in content but smaller and less weighty. When describing the Persian Bayan

in God Passes By Shoghi Effendi indicated that it should be regarded

primarily as a eulogy of the Promised One rather than as a code of laws

and ordinances designed to be a permanent guide to future generations.



'Abdu'l-Baha has written: The Bayan hath been superseded by the

Kitab-i-Aqdas, except in respect of such laws as have been confirmed and

mentioned in the Kitab-i-Aqdas.
