    The Lawh-i-Sultan of Iran, Bahá'u'lláh's Tablet to Nasiri'd-Din Shah, is the longest among several of His letters addressed to the kings and rulers of the world. This Tablet has been revealed partly in the Persian and partly in the Arabic languages. It was revealed in Adrianople and dispatched to the Sultan from 'Akká.

    It deals with various religious subjects and principally contains a direct and unbiased proclamation to the king about the truth of God's new revelations as well as the tribulations engulfing Bahá'u'lláh and His followers.
