Bahau’llah’s “declaration” at Baghdad in 1863 according to a kinswoman

See original Persian text at

[Mirza Husayn ‘Alí’ Nuri Baha’u’llah’s] ornamental couch was placed [the night before] in the street [adjoining the garden]. The neighborhood on both sides was well known for its flowers, renowned as the Muhammadan Rose [gol-i-muhammadí]. During the night [Mírzá Aqá Ján Káshání] Khádim’ullah cut the flowers from the surrounding branches and laid them all on the couch. Then upon the break of morn, [Mírzá Aqá Ján Káshání came back and] began his cries, moaning and clamour that “the manifestation has occurred,” “the flowers have prostrated themselves at the blessed feet” and that “for no prophet or saint before this, and in such evident manner, has a miracle such as this ever occurred!” And such is [the tale of the truth] regarding the celebration of the day of flowers [i.e. Ridwán], which their “holinesses” celebrate [proclaiming] that the flower branches had prostrated themselves at their feet!
