The Covenant Of Baha’u’llah

Baha’u’llah is the Promised One of all religions; The supreme manifestation of God. The Covenant of Baha’u’llah extends at least  one thousand years into the future; beginning in 1852 and extending into 2,852.

The “Book of the Covenant” was written entirely by Baha’u’llah and in this document he Appoints his eldest son Abdu’l-Baha as the  center of his Covenant to which all must turn.

Baha’u’llah the supreme manifestation of God died on Nov 12th,
1892. Nine days later Abdu’l-Baha assumed his responsibility as the authorized
interpreter of his fathers writings and the center of his Covenant.

The ministry of Abdu’l-Baha, the center of his fathers  Covenant, lasted twenty nine years. On November 28th, 1921 at the age of 77 he  ascended to the Abah kingdom.

The Covenant of Baha’u’llah was perserved in the Will and Testament of Abdu’l-Baha which was written in  his own hand between 1905 and 1907.

In this document the Covenant of Baha’u’llah is firmly protected because Abdu’l-Baha formally establishes the institution of  the Guardianship and appoints his grand son Shoghi Effendi as the Guardian of the Bahai Faith.

Shoghi Effendi was gurdian of the cause from 1921-1957. Five and a half years after his passing on 21 april 1963 the Universal House of Justice was was elected.

The Covenant of  Baha’u’llah is the Most Powerful Covenant in the history of the Human Race.

The Covenant extends from Baha’u’llah To His son Abdu’l-Baha to Shoghi
Effendi to the Universal House of Justice located on top Of Mount Carmel in Haifa Isreal.

Bahai’s who are firm in the covenant accept Baha’u’llah as the supreme manifestation of God, Recognize his son Abdu’l-Baha as the perfect Bahai and authorized interpreter of his fathers teachings; accept Shoghi Effendi as the gurdian of the faith and the Universal house of Justice as the institution that will provide guidance, free from error until the next manifestation who will not appear until after the year 2852.

All Bahai’s must seek guidance and turn unto the  Center of the Cause; Shoghi Effendi  and the House of Justice. “And he that turneth unto whatsoever  else is indeed in grievous error.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Baha’i World Faith – Abdu’l-Baha Section, p. 448)

The Covenant  of Baha’u’llah has ordained The House of Justice to provide infallible
guidance for humanity during Bahá’u’lláh dispensation. The House  of Justice is an institution created by Bahá’u’lláh.

Bahá’u’lláh refers to  two levels of this institution: the Local Houses of Justice, responsible for  each town or village, and the Universal House of Justice. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, in His  Will and Testament, added an intermediate level, the Secondary Houses of  Justice. The Covenant of Bahá’u’lláh indicates that It is only on the Universal House of Justice that infallibility has  been conferred. (Abdu’l-Baha, Some Answered  Questions, p. 172)

Regarding the Covenant of Baha’u’llah, his son Abdu’l-Baha has said: “Unto the  Most Holy Book every one must turn and all that is not expressly recorded  therein must be referred to the Universal House of Justice. That which this  body, whether unanimously or by a majority doth carry, that is verily the Truth  and the Purpose of God himself.”

“Whoso doth deviate therefrom is verily of them  that love discord, hath shown forth malice and turned away from the Lord of the  Covenant.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Baha’i World Faith – Abdu’l-Baha Section, p. 447)

Here are a few of Abdu’l-Baha’s words regarding the behavior of those who are firm in the Covenant.

“The  substance is, that prior to the completion of a thousand years, no individual
may presume to breathe a word. All must consider themselves to be of the order
of subjects, submissive and obedient to the commandments of God and the laws of
the House of Justice.

Should any deviate by so much as a needle’s point from  the decrees of the Universal House of Justice, or falter in his compliance  therewith, then is he of the outcast and rejected.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Selections from the  Writings of Abdu’l-Baha, p. 68)

Abdu’l-Baha has said that “the pivot of the oneness  of mankind is nothing else but the power of the Covenant“. Also “all the forces  in the unvierse serve the Covenant
