“Everything that is written in the Will and Testament [of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá] will be fulfilled. The Bahá’ís must not be anxious about this.”

The above quoted words of Shoghi Effendi are extracted from the Haifa Notes of Gayle Woolson, (Feb.16-25, 1956) renowned pioneer to Latin America whose outstandingly successful teaching efforts in several countries throughout Latin America were chronicled at the time in many issues of the Bahá’í Newsletter of the United States. She was subsequently elected to the first Regional Spiritual Assembly of South America. Her credibility is therefore of the highest order.

True to his word, Shoghi Effendi unquestionably provided for the continuation of the Guardianship. Why then did the Hands of the Cause, following his passing, terminate the Institution of the Guardianship and, in their undue haste to do so, not take the time to discover the manner in which Shoghi Effendi had clearly effected the appointment of his successor, not by testamentary document but “in his own lifetime,” as required under the sacred terms of the Will and Testament of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá?

For further irrefutable documented evidences and proof that Shoghi Effendi faithfully adhered to the most important provision of the sacred and immutable Mandate of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, in the appointment of his successor, visit the following web site:
