Hidden Words: Deepening Day 3, Persian 64 – Justice

 

Bahá’u’lláh reveals an even sterner warning in the Persian Hidden Word No. 64. Here He states that even forgiveness may be withheld for injustices committed. Justice is indeed a supreme quality that must be assiduously worked for and guarded. He says:

“O OPPRESSORS ON EARTH! Withdraw your hands from tyranny, for I have pledged Myself not to forgive any man’s injustice. This is My covenant which I have irrevocably decreed in the preserved tablet and sealed with My seal.”

More importantly, let’s see what ‘Abdu’l-Bahá has to say on the subject of Justice as it relates to the Hidden Words:

‘In the Hidden Words Bahá’u’lláh says, “Justice is to be loved above all.” Praise be to God, in this country the standard of justice has been raised; a great effort is being made to give all souls an equal and a true place. This is the desire of all noble natures; this is today the teaching for the East and for the West; therefore the East and the West will understand each other and reverence each other, and embrace like long-parted lovers who have found each other.’ [‘Abdu’l-Bahá, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá In London, p. 20.]
