The Master approved Mirza Ahmad’s stand of spreading the true teachings of Baha’u’llah and even praised him for his efforts. Let us read the following, as described by Mirza Ahmad Sohrab himself.
“That night in a dream, I found myself in a little room in the hotel at Tiberias where I had often been with Abdu’l Baha. I was turning over the pages of my diary and, as I did so, I noticed a fragrance coming in through the window. The Master must be near, I said to myself and I went out, continuing in my mind: I will look for his footsteps in the sand and if I find them, I will place my own feet into them. I walked by the Sea of Galilee which was in a state of great commotion, and rising from the waves, I saw Abdu’l Baha in white turban and gown, which were wet as were his hair and beard; and Abdu’l Baha advanced over the water and joined me, standing at my side, and his hair and beard had become dry. The Master said: Khayli Khoub, Mirza Ahmad, and slapped me on both cheeks, as he used to do; then, we will walk together. We began to walk, and the Master asked, Are you happy? Very happy, I answered. He went on: This will be a most significant year for you. You have much for which to be grateful to Baha’u’llah; and to show your gratitude, you must do what she wants, you must teach the Cause. Great blessings will follow. He then withdrew over the sea, which had become as smooth as glass, and disappeared in the waters.“
(Reference: Broken Silence, pg. 65-66)
If you closely read and analyse, both Baha’u’llah and the Master were more concerned about spreading the pristine message of the Cause. Mirza Ahmad dedicated his entire life in serving the Cause and even died on this holy path of spreading the holy message.
Such incidents should give a sense of ownership to all the Baha’is around the world and they should work for the Cause where ever they are. The sole motive of all Baha’is should be to walk on the path shown by Mirza Ahmad, the earnest devotee of Baha’u’llah and the Master. Unfortunately, the current form of UHJ is not interested in spreading the pristine message of the Cause and thus Baha’is are frustrated towards their attitude of forcing Ruhi books on them.
