Looking for a prayer in Arabic

Postby jakeyryrutu » Fri Sep 22, 2006 12:08 pm

Hello everyone,

I am looking for the original text of a famous prayer:

Blessed is the spot,
and the house,
and the place,
and the city,
and the heart,
and the mountain,
and the refuge,
and the cave,
and the valley,
and the land,
and the sea,
and the island,
and the meadow
where mention of God hath been made
and His praise glorified.

It has been written by Baha'u'llah, I don't know if it is in Persian or Arabic. May somebody help me?

Thank you, bye bye!!!

At least one other scholar was not aware of the Persian or Arabic original. See footnote 4 in http://bahai-library.com/?file=lewis_sc ... literature (though it doesn't offer information, maybe you would be interested in the discussion)

The original is in INBA Vol. 27 page 354 (and less legibly in Vol. 7 , page 123 of the Afnan Library pdf). It was addressed to Hand of the Cause Ibn Asdaq in response to the creation of a mashriqu'l-adhkar in a home in Tehran. You can download the two INBA volumes here :
