Excerpt

pon the true Monarchs of the world, those Gems of divine virtue! Content with a transitory dominion, they have deprived themselves of an everlasting sovereignty. Thus, their eyes beheld not the light of the countenance of the Well-Beloved, nor did their ears hearken unto the sweet melodies of the Bird of Desire.

The Kitáb-i-Íqán, also known as The Book of Certitude, was written by Bahá'u'lláh, Prophet Founder of the Bahá'i Faith to ensure that those who wished to follow His teachings for this era in the development of mankind, did not neglect recognition of previous Manifestations of God.

"This book verifies the respective stations and missions of the Founders of religion. With none of the Prophets does the Author find fault: to Them He gives praise, and affirms the oneness of Their primary Teachings. ... Unto Them God entrusted the moral education of the race. With Them is centered the Covenant made in Heaven for man's redemption."

This book explains, to those who seek truth, the continuing revelation of God to His Creation, mankind.
