Traveler’s Narrative

A Traveler’s Narrative, written by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá around 1886, provides a summary of the early history of the Faith. It was first published anonymously in Persian in 1890 and the English translation was prepared by Professor Edward G. Browne for publication in 1891. In order to achieve its overarching objective of establishing the moral, non-political nature of the Faith the narrative documents the period of history associated with Báb and His followers; asserts that Bahá'u'lláh reformed the morals of the early believers and enjoined non-retaliation; describes the trials and exile faced by Bahá'u'lláh; refers to the Súriy-i-Haykal as Bahá'u'lláh's statement about the nature of His mission; cites Tablets of Bahá’u’lláh as well as the Kitáb-i-Aqdas to present the teachings of the Faith; and argues in favor of the extension of rights to all citizens and for their freedom of conscience and belief.

About 'Abdu'l-Bahá [MENU]

‘Abdu’l-Bahá is the title adopted by the Son of Bahá’u’lláh. His given name was Abbas. He was born in 1844 in what is now Irán and died in 1921 in what is now Israel.

As Bahá’u’lláh’s successor, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá served as Head of the Bahá’í Faith from 1892 to his death. As the chosen interpreter of His Writings, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá expounded upon the teachings of His Father’s Faith, amplified its doctrines, and outlined the central features of its administrative institutions. He wrote over 25,000 tablets, only a fraction of which are translated into English. Many of His lectures and speeches were also documented, some of which are published.
