129 The Mother Book #103





The term Mother Book is generally used to designate the central Book of

a religious Dispensation. In the Qur'an and Islamic Hadith, the term is

used to describe the Qur'an itself. In the Babi Dispensation, the Bayan is

the Mother Book, and the Kitab-i-Aqdas is the Mother Book of the

Dispensation of Baha'u'llah. Further, the Guardian in a letter written on

his behalf has stated that this concept can also be used as a collective

term indicating the body of the Teachings revealed by Baha'u'llah. This

term is also used in a broader sense to signify the Divine Repository of

Revelation.
