Stories about 'Abdu'l-Bahá

Mahmud’s: June 16 – “You must teach the Cause of God with great humility”

Mahmud's Diary
June 16, 1912
New York, NY

In the morning the Master spoke about the meeting held the previous evening at the church in Brooklyn. ‘This is how we establish the truth of Islam in synagogues, churches and great temples. And see what the Muslims say about us?’

He gave a detailed account of the new teachings to an eminent American author, who was to write about them and who had requested permission from ‘Abdu’l-Bahá to publish the work.

The subject of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s talk in a public meeting today was, ‘However the material world may advance, it is still in need of the teachings of the Holy Spirit’.

These days He often encourages the friends to teach the Cause of God and to travel to neighboring countries. ‘You must teach the Cause of God’, He said, ‘with great humility. Just as I feel myself humble before all, even before children, so must you be.’
