Stories about 'Abdu'l-Bahá

Believers’ excitement and eagerness to meet ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in San Francisco

Mahmud's Diary

San Francisco, CA

From early morning the enthusiasm, eagerness, excitement, joy and singing of the believers surrounded ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, just as in the stories of the iguana and the sun and the moth and the candle. It was the ultimate example of a joyful reunion among the lovers of God. These ecstatic friends offered thanks for the bounty of attaining His presence and being near to Him.

Abdu’l-Bahá continuously gave thanks for the confirmations of the Abha Kingdom and for the power and influence of the Cause of God and encouraged the believers to proclaim the Cause of God. At noon He went for a walk and then took a little rest.
