This is a follow-up to my message of 25 April, 2022 concerning the fire at
a construction site in the Holy Land.
This is a follow-up to my message of 25 April, 2022 concerning the fire at a construction site in the Holy Land. This construction was undertaken by the illegitimate organization which undeservedly is calling itself the Universal House of Justice. They planned to disturb and remove the physical remains of Abdu'l-Baha from the existing shrine in the same building as the shrine of the Bab and move these remains to another place when this construction site caught on fire. I would like to ask the question if the fake UHJ has the resources for the construction of a building in the Holy Land, why they do not build the Mashriqu'l-Adhkar (Baha'i House of Worship) which Abdu'l-Baha commanded and was emphasized by Shoghi Effendi? The land had been purchased and the plan/design and model were prepared during the Ministry of the first Guardian which must be available in the Archive, if the former rebellious Hands of the Cause or fake UHJ have not destroyed them. So far, the majority of what they have done is against the true Baha'i Faith and is evidence of their falsehood and deception. I draw the attention of all the Baha'is to the following undeniable facts:
Seventy-one years ago, Shoghi Effendi the First Guardian of the Baha'i Faith directed the following message to all the Baha'is of the world in the Cablegram of April 25, 1951:
steps taken in preparation of final design for the
Mashriqu'l-Adhkar on Mount Carmel by President of the
International Baha'i Council, specifically appointed by
Abdu'l-Baha to be its architect."
Process of the unfoldment of the ever-advancing Administrative Order accelerated by the formation of the International Baha'i Council designed to assist in the erection of the superstructure of the Bab's Sepulcher, cement ties uniting the budding World Administrative Center with the recently established state and pave the way for the formation of the Baha'i Court, essential prelude to the institution of the Universal House of Justice."
And one year later, in a Cablegram dated April 23, 1952, he announced the following statement:
"Eighteen plots, a twenty-two thousand square meter area, have been added to the International Baha'i endowments on the slopes of Carmel. Government survey concluded paving the way for the acquisition of over one hundred forty thousand square meters of property in the precincts of the Most Holy Tomb at Bahji. The design for the Mashriqu'l-Adhkar on Carmel, conceived by the President of the International Baha'i Council, completed."(Shoghi Effendi, Messages to the Baha'i World: 1950-1957, p. 26)
Also, in the same year in a Cablegram dated October 8, 1952, He wrote:
"Doubling the number of Mashriqu'l-Adhkars, through the initiation of the construction of one on the Asiatic and the other on the European continent. The acquisition of the site of the future Mashriqu'l-Adhkar on Mount Carmel. The establishment of a Baha'i Court in the Holy Land, preliminary to the emergence of the Universal House of Justice. Shoghi"(Messages to the Baha'i World: 1950-1957 p. 42)
Everybody can read the following paragraph in Star of the West volume 13 page 221: SW_Volume13.pdf (bahai-library.com) :
"Regarding the Bahai Temple to be built on Mount Carmel Abdul Baha wrote to Mr. Charles Mason Remey of Washington, D. C., in a tablet dated October 7, 1921: "Some time ago I wrote thee a letter the content of which was that praise be to God, thou hast become confirmed in drawing a plan for the pilgrim house in Haifa. It is my hope that this pilgrim house may be built under your supervision. Also, in the future a Mashreq'ul Azkar will be established on Mount Carmel. Thou wilt be its architect and founder, I give thee this glad tidings,"(Star of the West, volume 13, p. 221) SW_Volume 13.pdf (bahai-library.com)
The first Guardian in the following messages gave the glad tidings about the decision to purchase suitable land for the Mashriqu'l-Adhkar:
"The third announcement is that preliminary steps have been taken, aiming at the acquisition of an extensive area at the head of the holy mountain, scene of the revelation of the Tablet of Carmel, preparatory to the purchase of the site for the future Mother Mashriqu'l-Adhkar of the Holy Land, made possible by the munificent hundred thousand dollar donation of the Hand of the Cause, Amelia Collins, signalizing the opening of the second stage in the unfoldment of the mighty process set in motion by the Author of the Faith."
(Shoghi Effendi, Messages to the Baha'i World: 1950–1957, p. 170) [7 October 1953]
And more glad tidings in cablegrams of April 1954 and April 1955:
"The site for the first Mashriqu'l-Adhkar of the Holy Land has been selected an area of approximately twenty-thousand square meters, situated at the head of the Mountain of God, in close proximity to the Spot hallowed by the footsteps of Baha'u'llah, near the time-honored Cave of Elijah, and associated with the revelation of the Tablet of Carmel, the Charter of the World Spiritual and Administrative Centers of the Faith on that mountain. Funds totaling one hundred thousand dollars have, moreover, been contributed by one of the Hands of the Cause, residing in the Holy Land, and negotiations have been initiated with the Israeli authorities for the purpose of effecting the immediate purchase of the selected site. Shoghi
April, 1954" (Messages to the Baha'i World: 1950-1957, p. 63)
"The international Baha'i endowments on Mt. Carmel have been greatly enhanced by the signature of a contract with the Israeli Authorities for the acquisition of an area of thirty-six thousand square meters, situated on the promontory of Mt. Carmel, overlooking the Cave of Elijah, as well as the spot sanctified by the footsteps of Baha'u'llah and associated with the revelation of the Tablet of Carmel, for the price of one hundred and eight thousand dollars, to serve as the site for the first Mashriqu'l-Adhkar of the Holy Land, the entire sum having been donated by Amelia Collins, Hand of the Cause and outstanding benefactress of the Faith. Shoghi" April, 1955
