Hand of the Cause of God Dr. Rahmatullah Muhajir’s greatest desire was to serve his beloved Guardian, Shoghi Effendi. He understood the urgency of the times, the hunger of the millions of waiting souls who long for God’s healing message of hope and unity. He, perhaps, was the greatest mass teacher of the Bahá’í Faith in the twentieth century, bringing thousands into the fold of Bahá’u’lláh. For those who want to be inspired and encouraged – this book is a must.
In this account of his life, the reader is exposed to the sheer breathtaking scale of his achievements across the globe. From his first pioneering post in the remote Mentawai Islands of Indonesia, to Africa, Asia, Australia and the Pacific, to Eurpose and the Americas, North and South, where he eventually laid down his life, we follow the remarkable journeys and exploits of this promoter and defender of the Faith of God. We learn of his courage in the face of danger and opposition, his audacity and firmness in times of difficulty, and his devotion and zeal in the face of antipathy and complacency. Above all, we learn of his great love for the poor and often exploited masses of ordinary people, especially the peasant farmers, villagers and indigenous tribes of every continent.
For those who want to be inspired, encouraged, confirmed in the power and beauty of Baha'u'llah's teachings - let them read this book, for this is what true heroes are made of.
