Secret of Divine Civilization

A treatise written by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in Persian in 1875, addressed to the rulers and people of Persia. It was printed in Bombay in 1882 and widely circulated in Iran. This English translation was first published in 1957.

The Secret of Divine Civilization is a thorough explanation of the view of the Bahá'í Faith on the true nature of civilization. It contains an appealing and universal message inspiring world-mindedness and soliciting the highest human motives and attributes for the establishment of a spiritual society. Written by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in the late nineteenth century as a letter to the rulers and people of Persia, it is still profoundly relevant today as a guide to creating a peaceful and productive world.

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.
