10 ‘Azamat (Grandeur)

In the second quote it states that God can cause “all names to appear in one name” and “all souls in one soul”, what is your understanding of the meaning of this?

“One righteous act is endowed with a potency that can so elevate the dust as to cause it to pass beyond the heaven of heavens. It can tear every bond asunder, and hath the power to restore the force that hath spent itself and vanished.”
(Bahá’u’lláh, Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 286)

“Verily God is fully capable of causing all names to appear in one name, and all souls in one soul. Surely powerful and mighty is He.”
(Bahá’u’lláh, Tablets of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 183)

Daily Reflection – 7 Sultan (Sovereignty)

“The contingent world is the source of imperfections: God is the origin of perfections. The imperfections of the contingent world are in themselves a proof of the perfections of God.

“For example, when you look at man, you see that he is weak. This very weakness of the creature is a proof of the power of the Eternal Almighty One, because, if there were no power, weakness could not be imagined. Then the weakness of the creature is a proof of the power of God; for if there were no power, there could be no weakness; so from this weakness it becomes evident that there is power in the world. Again, in the contingent world there is poverty; then necessarily wealth exists, since poverty is apparent in the world. In the contingent world there is ignorance; necessarily knowledge exists, because ignorance is found; for if there were no knowledge, neither would there be ignorance. Ignorance is the nonexistence of knowledge, and if there were no existence, nonexistence could not be realized.”

(`Abdu’l-Bahá. “Some Answered Questions.”)

Daily Reflection – 17 Sharaf (Honour)

by Szechenyi Szidonia

“Heed not your weaknesses and frailty; fix your gaze upon the invincible power of the Lord, your God, the Almighty. Has He not, in past days, caused Abraham, in spite of His seeming helplessness, to triumph over the forces of Nimrod? Has He not enabled Moses, whose staff was His only companion, to vanquish Pharaoh and his hosts? Has He not established the ascendancy of Jesus, poor and lowly as He was in the eyes of men, over the combined forces of the Jewish people? Has He not subjected the barbarous and militant tribes of Arabia to the holy and transforming discipline of Muhammad, His Prophet? Arise in His name, put your trust wholly in Him, and be assured of ultimate victory.”
(Addressed to the Letters of the Living, quoted in The Dawn-Breakers, p. 94)
