Bahai Reference Library


The distinct bounty of having a revelation that is so young, and after the release of printable media and regular notation is that the Baha’is have the ability to read the words of Baha’u’llah and Abdu’l-Baha, the stories of the early believers in Iran, the many letters penned by Shoghi Effendi and Abdu’l-Baha, as well as other accounts and passages written by authors before, during, and after Baha’u’llah declared His Mission. Many of these works, and others, have been provided online, and it is a very useful site for seekers and registered Baha’is alike who want to learn and read more about the Faith, and its history.

“O My servants! My holy, My divinely ordained Revelation may be likened unto an ocean in whose depths are concealed innumerable pearls of great price, of surpassing luster. It is the duty of every seeker to bestir himself and strive to attain the shores of this ocean, so that he may, in proportion to the eagerness of his search and the efforts he hath exerted, partake of such benefits as have been pre-ordained in God’s irrevocable and hidden Tablets.”

-Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 326
