Abdul Baha’s prayers for America

I was recently surfing the Internet and came across this “prayer” of Abdul Baha (son of Bahaullah, the founder of the Bahai Faith) for the land of America. This prayers was made in 1912 when Abdul Baha travelled to America. A Bahai website says that “Abdul Baha called on America to become a land of spiritual distinction and leadership and gave a powerful vision of America’s spiritual destiny — to lead the way in establishing the oneness of humanity.”

The prayer goes like this:

“O Thou kind Lord!
This gathering is turning to Thee.
These hearts are radiant with Thy love.
These minds and spirits are exhilarated by the message of Thy glad-tidings.

O God! Let this American democracy become glorious in spiritual degrees
even as it has aspired to material degrees, and render this just government victorious.

Confirm this revered nation to upraise the standard of the oneness of humanity,
to promulgate the Most Great Peace, to become thereby most glorious and praise-worthy among all the nations of the world.

O God! This American nation is worthy of Thy favors and is deserving of Thy mercy.
Make it precious and near to Thee through Thy bounty and bestowal.”

I read this and my first reaction was, what a farce! This confirms what is generally believed about the Bahai community. They are happy to turn a blind eye to anything and to anyone as long as that thing or person works in their favour. So you will never hear them say anything negative about America or Israel or any Western country. Ask them about this and they will say that they don’t interfere in politics. But then they have a lot to say about Iran. What hypocrisy! Anyways, it is no secret that the Bahai Faith was an unknown entity as long as it was limited to Persia. In fact they were almost finished in Persia. It is only after America welcomes them with open arms that the Bahai Faith came to known in the outside world.

The Bahai Faith has reciprocated in kind – they relaxed the rules of the Bahai Faith regarding marriage and adultery for America and now wonder of wonders – they even have a lobbying office in Washington!

Not surprisingly, you have the false prophet, Mirza Ghulam Ahmed Qadiani praising the Queen of Great Britan as well. I say not surprisingly because undoubtedly, these were the very countries that sowed the seeds of dissension in the Muslim community through the fitna of Bahai and Qadiani.

      Dear Bro;
      Words like Love, unity, peace oneness of mankind are soothing to ear, but if you see your Leaders they acted exactly opposite of it, don’t believe..! see the this blog where history is showing something else.

      now history you can’t deny when the leaders of faith acted differently the followers are advise not go for history instead to read the book like hidden words, tablets etc. and remind you independent investigation of truth will lead you astray.

      cheers
