The Master in Egypt: A Compilation

Studies in the Bábi and Bahá’i Religions, Volume 26


A few years after the Young Turks freed him from imprisonment, in August 1910, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, boarded a ship for Egypt’s Port Said and left the Holy Land for the first time in forty years. He’d told no one of his plans. From Egypt, he sailed to Europe and America to spread the Baha’i teachings, returning 1913. He remained in Egypt for a few months to recuperate from his journeys.

This book is the complete published record of The Master in Egypt, reported in loving detail by the Baha’is who were with him. Included are excerpts from Baha’i News, Star of the West, and an updated translation of Abdu’l-Baha in Egypt. There are accounts of his meetings with the believers and Egyptian dignitaries, accounts of his conversations and public talks, and provisional translations of the Tablets he wrote to the Baha’is of Iran. It’s an incredible treasure trove of writings and stories of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá published in one volume for the first time.


A note on publication:
Shoghi Effendi…has carefully considered the matter of having Ahmad Sohrab’s “Abdu’l-Baha’ in Egypt” included in the new catalogue of Bahá’í books….He feels that in view of the fact that this book of Ahmad has already been reviewed and corrected under Bahá’í auspices reference to it in the Baha’i catalogue is advisable.
-From a letter written on behalf of the Guardian to the National Spiritual Assembly of the United States and Canada, March 24, 1934
