4 Nine Rak'ahs #6






A rak'ah is the recitation of specifically revealed verses accompanied by

a prescribed set of genuflections and other movements.



The Obligatory Prayer originally enjoined by Baha'u'llah upon His

followers consisted of nine rak'ahs. The precise nature of this prayer and

the specific instructions for its recitation are unknown, as the prayer

has been lost. (See note 9.)



In a Tablet commenting on the presently-binding Obligatory Prayers,

'Abdu'l-Baha indicates that in every word and movement of the Obligatory

Prayer there are allusions, mysteries and a wisdom that man is unable to

comprehend, and letters and scrolls cannot contain.



Shoghi Effendi explains that the few simple directions given by

Baha'u'llah for the recital of certain prayers not only have a spiritual

significance but that they also help the individual to fully concentrate

when praying and meditating.
