They That Have Forsaken Their Country For
They that have forsaken their country for the purpose of teaching Our
Cause--these shall the Faithful Spirit strengthen through its power. A
company of Our chosen angels shall go forth with them, as bidden by Him
Who is the Almighty, the All-Wise. How great the blessedness that awaiteth
him that hath attained the honor of serving the Almighty! By My life! No
act, however great, can compare with it, except such deeds as have been
ordained by God, the All-Powerful, the Most Mighty. Such a service is,
indeed, the prince of all goodly deeds, and the ornament of every goodly
act. Thus hath it been ordained by Him Who is the Sovereign Revealer, the
Ancient of Days.
Whoso ariseth to teach Our Cause must needs detach himself from all
earthly things, and regard, at all times, the triumph of Our Faith as his
supreme objective. This hath, verily, been decreed in the Guarded Tablet.
And when he determineth to leave his home, for the sake of the Cause of
his Lord, let him put his whole trust in God, as the best provision for
his journey, and array himself with the robe of virtue. Thus hath it been
decreed by God, the Almighty, the All-Praised.
If he be kindled with the fire of His love, if he forgoeth all created
things, the words he uttereth shall set on fire them that hear him.
Verily, thy Lord is the Omniscient, the All-Informed. Happy is the man
that hath heard Our voice, and answered Our call. He, in truth, is of them
that shall be brought nigh unto Us.
