The Person of Abdu'l-Bahá & His Connection to the UK | A short video series (1/3)
On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the passing of 'Abdu'l-Bahá', we are remembering His peerless life and legacy, and are delighted to be sharing a three-part series of short videos to honour Him during this Centennial year.
As the centre of the Covenant, He holds a unique station in religious history. 'Abdu'l-Bahá's extraordinary qualities of character, His knowledge and His service to humanity offered a vivid demonstration of Bahá’u’lláh’s teachings in action, and brought great prestige to the rapidly expanding community throughout the world.
After His release from a lifetime of imprisonment, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá set out on a series of journeys which took Him to Egypt, Europe and North America. In 1911 and 1912, His peerless figure travelled to the UK.
Throughout His life, He presented with brilliant simplicity, to high and low alike, Bahá’u’lláh’s prescription for the spiritual and social renewal of society.
