The Ascension of Bahá’u’lláh: A Compilation

“‘Abdu’l-Bahá explained to the Bahá’ís that the physical body of the Prophet of God is like a cloud which covers the sun and which prevents its rays from reaching the earth. Because of their physical limitations, the Prophets of God must live by the rules of physical existence. For this reason, many people are tested. They will say, ‘What kind of Prophet is he? He sleeps and eats and walks the streets like everyone else.’ But when the cloud is removed, the rays of the sun reach the people directly, and the whole of creation is resuscitated by their lifegiving light.” (p. 37)

Enjoy this reference to the most important passages in the Bahá’í Writings concerning the Ascension of Bahá’u’lláh. It can be used as a guide for Bahá’í Holy Day commemorations, or for deepening on the history and meaning of the end of an Epoch.

This short volume includes: eyewitness accounts of Bahá’u’lláh’s passing, Shoghi Effendi’s history of Bahá’u’lláh’s final days from God Passes By, the Tablet of Visitation (traditionally read at 3:00 a.m. on the anniversary of his ascension), the Kitab-i-Ahd, or Book of the Covenant (Bahá’u’lláh’s Will and Testament), and utterances of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá concerning His father. We hope that this book will be an assistance to Bahá’í families and communities.
