And Now Concerning Thy Question

And now concerning thy question whether human souls continue to be
conscious one of another after their separation from the body. Know thou
that the souls of the people of Baha, who have entered and been
established within the Crimson Ark, shall associate and commune intimately
one with another, and shall be so closely associated in their lives, their
aspirations, their aims and strivings as to be even as one soul. They are
indeed the ones who are well-informed, who are keen-sighted, and who are
endued with understanding. Thus hath it been decreed by Him Who is the
All-Knowing, the All-Wise.

The people of Baha, who are the inmates of the Ark of God, are, one and
all, well aware of one another's state and condition, and are united in
the bonds of intimacy and fellowship. Such a state, however, must depend
upon their faith and their conduct. They that are of the same grade and
station are fully aware of one another's capacity, character,
accomplishments and merits. They that are of a lower grade, however, are
incapable of comprehending adequately the station, or of estimating the
merits, of those that rank above them. Each shall receive his share from
thy Lord. Blessed is the man that hath turned his face towards God, and
walked steadfastly in His love, until his soul hath winged its flight unto
God, the Sovereign Lord of all, the Most Powerful, the Ever-Forgiving, the

The souls of the infidels, however, shall--and to this I bear witness--when
breathing their last be made aware of the good things that have escaped
them, and shall bemoan their plight, and shall humble themselves before
God. They shall continue doing so after the separation of their souls from
their bodies.

It is clear and evident that all men shall, after their physical death,
estimate the worth of their deeds, and realize all that their hands have
wrought. I swear by the Day Star that shineth above the horizon of Divine
power! They that are the followers of the one true God shall, the moment
they depart out of this life, experience such joy and gladness as would be
impossible to describe, while they that live in error shall be seized with
such fear and trembling, and shall be filled with such consternation, as
nothing can exceed. Well is it with him that hath quaffed the choice and
incorruptible wine of faith through the gracious favor and the manifold
bounties of Him Who is the Lord of all Faiths....

This is the Day when the loved ones of God should keep their eyes directed
towards His Manifestation, and fasten them upon whatsoever that
Manifestation may be pleased to reveal. Certain traditions of bygone ages
rest on no foundations whatever, while the notions entertained by past
generations, and which they have recorded in their books, have, for the
most part, been influenced by the desires of a corrupt inclination. Thou
dost witness how most of the commentaries and interpretations of the words
of God, now current amongst men, are devoid of truth. Their falsity hath,
in some cases, been exposed when the intervening veils were rent asunder.
They themselves have acknowledged their failure in apprehending the
meaning of any of the words of God.

Our purpose is to show that should the loved ones of God sanctify their
hearts and their ears from the vain sayings that were uttered aforetime,
and turn with their inmost souls to Him Who is the Day Spring of His
Revelation, and to whatsoever things He hath manifested, such behavior
would be regarded as highly meritorious in the sight of God....

Magnify His Name, and be thou of the thankful. Convey My greetings to My
loved ones, whom God hath singled out for His love, and caused them to
achieve their objects. All glory be to God, the Lord of all worlds.
