7 When Ye Desire To Perform This Prayer






turn ye towards the Court of My
Most Holy Presence, this Hallowed Spot that God hath ... decreed to be the
Point of Adoration for the denizens of the Cities of Eternity 6


The Point of Adoration, that is, the point to which the worshipper
should turn when offering obligatory prayer, is called the Qiblih. The
concept of Qiblih has existed in previous religions. Jerusalem in the past
had been fixed for this purpose. Muhammad changed the Qiblih to Mecca. The
Bab's instructions in the Arabic Bayan were:


The Qiblih is indeed He Whom God will make manifest; whenever He
moveth, it moveth, until He shall come to rest.


This passage is quoted by Baha'u'llah in the Kitab-i-Aqdas ( 137) and
confirmed by Him in the above-noted verse. He has also indicated that
facing in the direction of the Qiblih is a fixed requirement for the
recitation of obligatory prayer (Q and A 14 and 67). However, for other
prayers and devotions the individual may face in any direction.
