181 Any Reference To Vicegerency Debar You From The Sovereignty Of Him Who Is The Vicegerent Of God #167

The word here translated Vicegerency is, in the original Arabic,

vilayat, which has a range of meanings including vicegerency,

guardianship, protectorship and successorship. It is used in

relation to God Himself, to His Manifestation, or to those who are the

appointed Successors of a Manifestation.

In this verse of the Aqdas, Baha'u'llah warns against allowing such

concepts to blind one to the sovereignty of the new Divine

Manifestation, the true Vicegerent of God.
