Selected Tablets of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá

The present volume consists of seventy-six newly translated selections covering the entire period of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá's ministry. They describe aspects of the life of Bahá’u’lláh—the tribulations He suffered, events in His homeland, the purpose and greatness of His Cause, and the unparalleled nature and significance of His Covenant, as well as the relentless but futile efforts to undermine and destroy it.

Many of the Tablets in the volume reflect parallels between Bahá’u’lláh’s sufferings and those that the Master Himself endured during His lifetime.

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.
