189 This New World Order #181
In the Persian Bayan, the Bab stated: Well is it with him who fixeth his
gaze upon the Order of Baha'u'llah, and rendereth thanks unto his Lord.
For He will assuredly be made manifest. God hath indeed irrevocably
ordained it in the Bayan. Shoghi Effendi identifies this Order with the
System Baha'u'llah envisages in the Aqdas, in which He testifies to its
revolutionizing effect on the life of humanity and reveals the laws and
principles which govern its operation.
The features of the new World Order are delineated in the Writings of
Baha'u'llah and 'Abdu'l-Baha and in the letters of Shoghi Effendi and the
Universal House of Justice. The institutions of the present-day Baha'i
Administrative Order, which constitute the structural basis of
Baha'u'llah's World Order, will mature and evolve into the Baha'i World
Commonwealth. In this regard, Shoghi Effendi affirms that the
Administrative Order will, as its component parts, its organic
institutions, begin to function with efficiency and vigour, assert its
claim and demonstrate its capacity to be regarded not only as the nucleus
but the very pattern of the New World Order destined to embrace in the
fullness of time the whole of mankind.
For additional information on the evolution of this new World Order, see,
for example, the letters of Shoghi Effendi published in The World Order of
