- Abdu’l-Baha was the eldest son of Baha’u’llah. When Abdu’l-Baha passed away on 28 November 1921, He was eulogized as One who led humanity to the “Way of Truth,” as a “pillar of peace” and the embodiment of “glory and greatness.”
The Baha’i World Centre has recently released a new compilation on social action which can be read online at the Baha’i Reference Library here. Prepared by the Research Department of the Universal House of Justice, this compilation features extracts from the writings of Baha’u’llah, the Bab, and Abdu’l-Baha and the letters of Shoghi Effendi and the Universal House of Justice. It covers underlying concepts and principles, the nature of Baha’i social and economic development, methods and approaches, and other themes.
Here is the link to read the compilation in its entirety: www.bahai.org/library/authoritative-texts/compilations/social-action/
You can find this compilation, and many others, on the Baha’i Reference Library which is the official online library of Baha’i writings. There you’ll also find newly released translations in English of the Baha’i writings. Click on “Recent Additions” to see what’s been added to the library.
