Daily Reflection -2 Asmá’ (Names)
August 21, 2018 - August 22, 2018
“It is clear and evident that in every community there have been, and will ever be, the learned and the ignorant, the wise and the heedless, the profligate and the pious.
That a wise and reflecting soul should commit a heinous deed is most improbable, inasmuch as such a person either seeketh after this world or hath forsaken it:
If he be of the latter, he would assuredly have no regard for aught else besides God, and moreover the fear of God would deter him from unlawful and reprehensible actions;
and if he be of the former, he would just as assuredly avoid such deeds as would alienate and alarm the people, and act in such a manner as to earn their confidence and trust.
It is therefore evident that reprehensible actions have always emanated, and will ever emanate, from ignorant and foolish souls.
We implore God to guard His servants from turning to anyone save Him, and to draw them nigh unto His presence.
His might, in truth, is equal to all things.”
– Baha’u’llah, The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, p. 120-121
