Dear Bahá’í Friends,

We are very happy to share with you the attached compilation titled “The Institution of the Mashriqu’l-Adhkár”, received from the Department of the Secretariat of the Universal House of Justice.  In its cover letter, it was noted that “The compilation consists of eighty-six extracts from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, the writings of Shoghi Effendi, and the letters of the Universal House of Justice.  Twenty-two of these are newly translated and appear in English for the first time.  The compilation is accompanied by an introduction; both have been prepared by the Research Department at the Bahá’í World Centre at the request of the House of Justice and are now available on the Bahá’í Reference Library in the section containing compilations.”  You may access the Bahá’í Reference Library at

The letter further adds that “… It is the ardent hope of the House of Justice that this compilation will assist the friends in gaining a deeper understanding of the vital role that the House of Worship is destined to play in the spiritual transformation of society.”

Kindly arrange for its wide distribution.  The French translation of the document is in preparation and we will be sure to share it with you when it becomes available.

With loving Bahá’í greetings,

Karen McKye, Secretary
