The Baha’i Faith 
The tender and simple seed, solitary though it may be, must not look upon its own lack of power. Nay, 
rather, its attention must ever be directed to the sun, in the rays of which it finds life and

have perfect and absolute confidence in the bounty of the Kingdom.

O ye beloved of God! When the winds blow severely, rains fall fiercely, the lightning flashes, the thunder

Thou hast ordained for me. Thine is the absolute command.

Tests & trials in the baha'i faith

  • 1. The Baha’i Faith The tender and simple seed, solitary though it may be, must not look upon its own lack of power. Nay, rather, its attention must ever be directed to the sun, in the rays of which it finds life and quickening...Therefore, let us ever trust in God and seek confirmation and assistance from Him.
