The Ascension of Abdu'l-Baha

This Saturday morning, Nov 28th @ 1AM, Baha'is will observe the passing of Abdu'l-Baha, exactly 94 years ago.

Abdu'l-Baha, the son of God's latest Manifestation, the Center of His Covenant, Baha'u'llah's gift to all mankind.

It was the Master, Abdu'l-Baha, who encouraged us to:

"Look at me; follow me; be as I am"

Tablet of Visitation of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá

He is the All-Glorious!

O God, my God! Lowly and tearful, I raise my suppliant hands to Thee and cover my face in the dust of that Threshold of Thine, exalted above the knowledge of the learned, and the praise of all that glorify Thee. Graciously look upon Thy servant, humble and lowly at Thy door, with the glances of the eye of Thy mercy, and immerse him in the Ocean of Thine eternal grace.

Lord! He is a poor and lowly servant of Thine, enthralled and imploring Thee, captive in Thy hand, praying fervently to Thee, trusting in Thee, in tears before Thy face, calling to Thee and beseeching Thee, saying:

O Lord, my God! Give me Thy grace to serve Thy loved ones, strengthen me in my servitude to Thee, illumine my brow with the light of adoration in Thy court of holiness, and of prayer to Thy kingdom of grandeur. Help me to be selfless at the heavenly entrance of Thy gate, and aid me to be detached from all things within Thy holy precincts. Lord! Give me to drink from the chalice of selflessness; with its robe clothe me, and in its ocean immerse me. Make me as dust in the pathway of Thy loved ones, and grant that I may offer up my soul for the earth ennobled by the footsteps of Thy chosen ones in Thy path, O Lord of Glory in the Highest.

With this prayer doth Thy servant call Thee, at dawntide and in the night-season. Fulfill his heart's desire, O Lord! Illumine his heart, gladden his bosom, kindle his light, that he may serve Thy Cause and Thy servants.

Thou art the Bestower, the Pitiful, the Most Bountiful, the Gracious, the Merciful, the Compassionate. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá

thank you so much Tony
tonight I am going to do the rites of this special night at home, alone. I will read some stories about Abdul Baha and then read the special tablet and then I will pray for all the Baha'is whether in Iran or in any other parts of the world

God bless your night.

May all the prayers offered tonight be granted an accelerated change in the direction of mankind towards the most great Unity, that God so Chooses.

Yabaha'ul'abha to you and all - Tony

Beloved sister, know that you are never alone. Each time you pray, know that you commune with every believer in the Ancient Wisdom, especially your forum family who pray for your intentions and hold a special place for you in our hearts
