Living in Faith


From the
Writings and Sayings
of ‘Abdu’l-Baha

Powers and blessings

… nothing shall be impossible to you if you have faith … As ye have faith, so shall your powers and blessings be.

Increasing faith

I beseech the Lord of Hosts to increase thy faith each day over that of the previous day.

Trust in God

Oh, trust in God! For His bounty is everlasting, and in His blessings, for they are superb. Oh! Put your faith in the Almighty, for He faileth not, and His goodness endureth forever! His sun giveth light continuously, and the clouds of His mercy are full of the waters of compassion with which He waters the hearts of all who trust in Him. His refreshing breeze ever carries healing in its wings to the parched souls of men!

Attributes of
the people
of Faith

… the attributes of the people of faith are justice and fair-mindedness; forbearance and compassion and generosity; consideration for others; candour, trustworthiness, and loyalty; love and loving-kindness; devotion and determination and humanity.

Ask and you
shall receive

Beg everything thou desirest from Baha'u'llah. If thou art asking faith, ask of Him. If thou art yearning after knowledge, He will grant it unto thee. If thou art longing for the love of God, He will bestow it upon thee. He will descend upon thee all His blessings.

Turning trouble
into ease

Rely upon God. Trust in Him, praise Him and call Him continually to mind. He, verily, turneth trouble into ease, and sorrow into solace, and toil into utter peace.

What is Faith?

By faith is meant, first, conscious knowledge, and second, the practice of good deeds.

and confirmation

Do not look at your weakness, nay, rely upon the confirmations of the Holy Spirit. Verily, it maketh the weak strong, the lowly mighty, the child grown, and the small great.

Being confident

Be confident in the bounty of thy Lord.

Attaining magnets
of faith and service

Faith is the magnet which draws the confirmations of the Merciful One. Service is the magnet which attracts the heavenly strength. I hope thou wilt attain both.

Full of hope

O God, my God! . . . In the darksome night of despair, my eye turneth expectant and full of hope to the morn of Thy boundless favour, and at the hour of dawn my drooping soul is refreshed and strengthened in remembrance of Thy beauty and perfection.
