- Baha’is believe in the power of prayer and you’ll find Baha’is and their friends, throughout the world, getting together to pray. This is often referred to as a ‘devotional gathering’ or ‘devotional meeting’, and they happen in diverse settings, whether in cities or villages.
The Baha’i World Centre has announced that a new volume of Baha’u’llah’s mystical Writings is now available and can be read online on the Baha’i Reference Library! Titled The Call of the Divine Beloved, the volume features five previously untranslated Writings, including a poem revealed during His time in the Black Pit of Tehran.
This poem is one of Baha’u’llah’s most renowned poetic works and it is called Rashh-i-Ama, or The Clouds of the Realms Above. The Baha’i World News Service describes it in these words:
[It] is one of the few writings He authored in His native land of Persia. The work, composed in 1852 during His four-month imprisonment in the Black Pit, is a poetic reflection on His first intimations of His station as a Manifestation of God.The book also contains revised translations of two of Baha’u’llah’s well-known works, The Seven Valleys and The Four Valleys.
