    The Tablets of the Divine Plan of 'Abdu'l-Bahá, His Will and Testament, and the Lawh-i-Karmil (Tablet of Carmel) revealed by Bahá'u'lláh are described by Shoghi Effendi as the three "Charters" for promotion of the Cause of God. Those revealed by the Center of the Covenant share several closely related subjects which will be examined here, specifically in the context of their references to the Bible and to the Qur'án. Problems facing humanity arising from a crisis of Faith—a spiritual affliction caused by humanity being denied Bahá'u'lláh's Revelation —a situation addressed in the Tablets of the Divine Plan.
