Ambassador to Humanity

A Selection of Testimonials and Tributes to 'Abdu'l-Baha

'Abdu'l-Bahá (1844–1921) was a friend, guide and confidant to all humanity. Those who encountered Him recognized a character of matchless virtue, an all-embracing love and altruism, extraordinary spiritual acuity, and super-human knowledge.

Through His personal care for the poor and vulnerable in society, His participation in the discourses of the age, His Writings and His promotion of the Baha'i Teachings, 'Abdu'l-Bahá was the living embodiment of the Covenant of Bahá’u’lláh, tasked with propagating and preserving the unity of an emerging global religion.

As people around the world mark the centenary of 'Abdu'l-Bahá's passing and the completion of the first century of the Formative Age of the Bahá’í Faith, this anthology is designed to increase devotion to 'Abdu'l-Bahá and aid profound reflection on His life, His mission and His unique qualities.
