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.

These Are, O My God, The Days Whereon Thou Didst Thine Eye Is My Trust Suffer Not The Dust facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail
