The National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of…
Dear Bahá’í Friends,
The Universal House of Justice has received your enquiry of 12 December 2012 concerning certain misapprehensions among some believers related to comments made by Mr. ‘Alí Nakhjavání at a recent conference in Germany. We have been asked to convey to you the following.
No doubt, you appreciate that statements of former members of the Universal House of Justice are accorded a certain respect by believers because of their years of service on that body. That some would use Mr. Nakhjavání’s comments to promote their own personal views at odds with aspects of the current series of global Plans is, however, most unfortunate. In fact, at the heart of Mr. Nakhjavání’s remarks is an appeal for the friends to turn to the guidance of the House of Justice.
As has become progressively apparent, the organic process of growth outlined by the House of Justice in recent Plans is reaching higher levels of complexity, especially in those clusters where the number of active participants has increased significantly. The transformation of communities under way across the globe in cluster after cluster, while still in its early stages, touches upon the most fundamental of social and cultural forces, currents, and aspirations. This growth process involves a coherent and systematic pattern of activity focused upon community building and includes the multiplication of study circles and institute campaigns, the education of children, the spiritual empowerment of junior youth, individual and collective teaching efforts, visits to the homes of believers and their friends, a cultivation of collective devotional life, social action, greater involvement in the discourses of society, as well as many other elements that enhance the capacity of individuals, institutions, and the community — the three protagonists of the Plan. Pivotal to this pattern of activity is the development of human resources through the training institute, with a sequence of courses that reinforce in the participants a posture of learning by which understanding continues to expand as they carry out acts of service of increasing complexity. This educational process nurtures a thirst for the Word of God, not only fostering an enduring habit of study and reflection on that wellspring of all progress but also enabling the friends to apply the Teachings in their own lives and in the bourgeoning life of the community. In its communications with the Bahá’í world, the House of Justice has described and elucidated these unfolding developments, and the Counsellors and National Spiritual Assemblies, the Auxiliary Board members and their assistants, as well as regional and local institutions, have laboured shoulder to shoulder with the believers who are striving to understand and respond to this guidance. As the friends, including those who do not wish to study the courses of the institute, embrace the guidance of the House of Justice in its entirety and, with love and a true Bahá’í spirit, rally around their institutions, they find that questions they may have are resolved.
That your continued efforts to assist the friends in this regard may attract the confirmations of the Blessed Beauty will be the prayer offered on your behalf by the House of Justice in the Holy Shrines.
With loving Bahá’í greetings, Department of the Secretariat
