Comparison of Western Democracies with the Concept of Governance in `Abdu'l-Bahá's Writings, A Muin Afnani English 81 The twentieth century witnessed the emergence of many forms of governments, some of which subsequently collapsed or changed.

Exploring the Theme of Mystical Love Muin Afnani English 102 The theme of Love is one of the fundamental concepts in Sufism. From the fifth/eleventh century onward, when the focus of Sufism turns gradually from asceticism to speculative mysticism, the concept of love assumes a central role in the Sufi texts. For example, Ahmad Ghazzali (d. 528/1126) devotes his Savanih, a treatise in Persian, to the theme of...

This is one of the most beautiful Tablets of Baha'u'llah i...
