Stories about 'Abdu'l-Bahá

‘I love you first and then my father.’

Mahmud's Diary
September 19, 1912
St Paul, MN

The Master took a walk in the garden. Several children approached Him and politely asked Him about His country and the purpose of His visit. He spoke with them kindly.

They then followed Him in respectful silence and when He approached the house, they asked permission to come inside. To each He gave some coins and showered them with kindness. One tiny child slipped off his father’s lap and ran to the Master, saying. ‘I love you first and then my father.’
