Advent of Divine Justice

A letter written by Shoghi Effendi to the Bahá’ís of North America, dated 25 December 1938.

The Advent of Divine Justice is above all a book about the destiny of America and the means by which that destiny can be ensured. "The North American Bahá’ís," writes Shoghi Effendi, will play an "active and decisive part" in establishing the federated world commonwealth ordained byBahá'u'lláh. But to win our heritage we must first acquire and internalize three vital spiritual prerequisites—"moral rectitude," "absolute chastity" and "complete freedom from prejudice"—which will contribute to success in every aspect of the Baha'i Faith.

About Shoghi Effendi

Shoghi Rabbani, known as Shoghi Effendi, was born in 1897 in what is now Israel, and died in 1957 in London, England. He was the grandson of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá and served as the Head of the Bahá’í Faith from 1921 to his death. Shoghi Effendi wrote over 25,000 letters and cables, some of which were later published as books. He also wrote a history of the first century of the Bahá’í Faith titled God Passes By. His writings – half of which are in English and the half of which are in Arabic and Persian - include analyses of world events in light of the Bahá’í scriptures, interpretations of Bahá’í scripture, responses to letters from individuals and Bahá’í institutions, and authoritative translations of writings of Bahá’u’lláh and the Báb.
