180 Take Heed Lest The Word Prophet Withhold You From This Most Great






Announcement 167


Baha'u'llah cautions people of insight not to allow their
interpretations of the Holy Scriptures to prevent them from recognizing
the Manifestation of God. Followers of each religion have tended to allow
their devotion to its Founder to cause them to perceive His Revelation as
the final Word of God and to deny the possibility of the appearance of any
subsequent Prophet. This has been the case of Judaism, Christianity and
Islam. Baha'u'llah denies the validity of this concept of finality both in
relation to past Dispensations and to His own. With regard to Muslims, He
wrote in the Kitab-i-Iqan that the people of the Qur'an ... have allowed
the words 'Seal of the Prophets' to veil their eyes, to obscure their
understanding, and deprive them of the grace of all His manifold
bounties. He affirms that this theme hath ... been a sore test unto all
mankind, and laments the fate of those who, clinging unto these words,
have disbelieved in Him Who is their true Revealer. The Bab refers to
this same theme when He warns: Let not names shut you out as by a veil
from Him Who is their Lord, even the name Prophet, for such a name is but
a creation of His utterance.
