Power of love

by Tahirih

If love and agreement are manifest in a single family, that family will advance, become illumined and spiritual; but if enmity and hatred exist within it destruction and dispersion are inevitable. This is likewise true of a city. If those who dwell within it manifest a spirit of accord and fellowship it will progress steadily and human conditions become brighter whereas through enmity and strife it will be degraded and its inhabitants scattered. In the same way the people of a nation develop and advance toward civilization and enlightenment through love and accord, and are disintegrated by war and strife. Finally, this is true of humanity itself in the aggregate. When love is realized and the ideal spiritual bonds unite the hearts of men, the whole human race will be uplifted, the world will continually grow more spiritual and radiant and the happiness and tranquillity of mankind be immeasurably increased. Warfare and strife will be uprooted, disagreement and dissension pass away and universal peace unite the nations and peoples of the world. All mankind will dwell together as one family, blend as the waves of one sea, shine as stars of one firmament and appear as fruits of the same tree. This is the happiness and felicity of humankind. This is the illumination of man, the glory eternal and life everlasting; this is the divine bestowal. (Abdulbaha)

Thank you Tahirih Khanum, I realy appreciate your postings. True that some of us need to hear words such as these untill they leave a tangible impression on us and begin to exercise the divine potency with which they are invested. And produce intended far reaching results in serving the world of humanity.

And happy Ridvan to you, dear Mona and all.

Thanks for asking, I will write about it in near future ,but for now I have to say that ,we believe in progressive revelation which means all religions are from the same source,which is God,but they are sent to us at different time in human history. So we do not usualy look at differences in  religions ,rather in their similarities. The important point is that ,each new manifestation completes the work of the former dispenssation.

I applaud your good writing by adding my translation of Saadi' Bani aadam...


Regardless of color, creed or looks of our face,

We'r members of Family of Man-The Human Race.

If one member ails and I don't offer a solace,

In the Family of Man I don't deserve a place.

Thank you for sharing such a wonderful thoughts with us, Hearing it from an Iranian in such a trouble time in our history makes all the difference. As long as we have indigenous leader, we should need any foreign influence to march toward unity, love, democracy and freedom.
