One should not pay attention to the enemies, He saith, exalted be He:

“Erelong you will hear the call of the clamorous impostor, don’t pay attention to him, but leave him to himself. Set your faces toward Him Who is the Object (the Qiblih) of the adoration of all mankind, who has fulfilled the proof with this Proof that is revealed through the power of truth (God, al-Haqq). The Lights have attained their consummation in this source (horizon) whence the splendor of (the) Might and (the) Grandeur is diffused. Blessed is the soul that hath been brought up as the servant with respect to God in that which has been sent down in the Scrolls and the Tablets. Say: If in each day another one is manifested, the cause of God will not find rest in the cities and the lands. This is the Revelation (Manifestation) that manifests itself (His own Self) every 500,000 years time only once. Moreover, we unveiled the cover and we lifted the veil. Blessed is the man that recognized (‘arif) the purpose of God.  In his recognition (‘irafah) has rejoiced in his heart and been made firm in the cause such that he cannot be made to stumble by the entire creation.  Verily We unveiled in this Tablet a secret wrapt in secrets. This Revelation We have concealed that which is the Hidden lest the tumult of the wicked rise.”

One should not pay attention to the enemies, He saith, exalted be He:

سوف تسمعون ندا ناعق لا تلتفتوا الیه دعوه بنفسه
Erelong you will hear the call of the clamorous impostor, don’t pay attention unto him, but leave him to himself

مقبلين الي قبلة الافاق قد تمت الحجة بهذه الحجة التي ظهرت بالحق
Set your faces toward Him Who is the Object (the Qiblih) of the adoration of all mankind, who has filled the Proof with this Proof that is revealed through the power of truth (God, al-Haqq)

و انتهت الانوار الي هذا الافق الذي منه اشرقت شمس العظمة و الاقتدار
The Lights have attained their consummation in this source (horizon) whence the splendor of (the) Might and (the) Grandeur is diffused.

طوبي لنفس تربي العباد بحدود الله التي نزلت في الزبر و الالواح
Blessed is the soul that hath been brought up as the servant with respect to God in that
Which has been sent down in the Scrolls and the Tablets.

قل لو يظهر في كل يوم احد لا يستقر امر الله في المدن و البلاد _
Say: If in each day another is manifested, the cause of God will not find rest in the cities and the lands.

Only once, furthermore, we unveiled (kashfana)  the cover and lifted the veil.

طوبي لمن عرف مراد الله من عرفه يفرح قلبه
Blessed is the man that recognized (‘arif) the purpose of God, in recognition (‘irafah) rejoiced in his heart, and

و يستقيم علي الامر علي شان لايزله من في الابداع
been made firm in the cause such that he cannot be made to stumble by the entire creation.

قد كشفنا في هذا اللوح سرا من اسرار
هذا الظهورو سترنا ما هو المكنون لئلا ترتفع ضوضا الفجار
Verily We unveiled (kashfana) in this Tablet a secret wrapt in secrets.

This Revelation We have concealed that which is the Hidden, lest the tumult of the wicked rise.

  1. Allah-u-Abha

    I see in Note 12 in Days of Remembrance that there is a Writing by Baha’u’llah called Tasfir-I-Hu. The note states in it Baha’u’llah explains that ‘Huva’ is the Greatest Name of God. This is very new to me and I am now extremely desirous of obtaining at least a provisional translation of this Writing and I cannot find it. Perchance do you or your colleagues have such a copy you might graciously forward to this seeking soul?

    My Greatest Thanks in any case.
    Ya Baha-u’l-Abha! Ya Ali-u’l-Allah!
