    Where did Baha'u'llah go after he physically died, where is he now?

    A Request: Most Inspiring Teachings and Prayers

    Simple quandary. My routine is to say the evening prayer before going to bed and the morning prayer when I wake up. Sometimes, I'll wake up and it will be past noon. Is it still appropriate to say the morning prayer? I woke up past 12 today and realized this was a question I was meaning to...
