2 We Have Unsealed The Choice Wine With The Fingers Of Might And Power #5

The consumption of wine and other intoxicants is prohibited in the
Kitab-i-Aqdas (see notes 144 and 170).

Reference to the use of wine in an allegorical sense--such as being the
cause of spiritual ecstasy--is found, not only in the Revelation of
Baha'u'llah, but in the Bible, in the Qur'an, and in ancient Hindu

For example, in the Qur'an the righteous are promised that they will be
given to drink of the choice sealed wine. In His Tablets, Baha'u'llah
identifies the choice Wine with His Revelation whose musk-laden
fragrance has been wafted upon all created things. He states that He
has unsealed this Wine, thereby disclosing spiritual truths that were
hitherto unknown, and enabling those who quaff thereof to discern the
splendours of the light of divine unity and to grasp the essential
purpose underlying the Scriptures of God.

In one of His meditations, Baha'u'llah entreats God to supply the
believers with the choice Wine of Thy mercy, that it may cause them to be
forgetful of any one except Thee, and to arise to serve Thy Cause, and to
be steadfast in their love for Thee.
