8 And When The Sun Of Truth And Utterance Shall Set






turn your faces
towards the Spot that We have ordained for you 6


Baha'u'llah ordains His resting-place as the Qiblih after His passing. The
Most Holy Tomb is at Bahji, Akka. 'Abdu'l-Baha describes that Spot as the
luminous Shrine, the place around which circumambulate the Concourse on
High.

In a letter written on his behalf, Shoghi Effendi uses the analogy of the
plant turning in the direction of the sun to explain the spiritual
significance of turning towards the Qiblih:


...just as the plant stretches out to the sunlight--from which it
receives life and growth--so we turn our hearts to the
Manifestation of God, Baha'u'llah, when we pray; ... we turn our
faces ... to where His dust lies on this earth as a symbol of the
inner act.
