Northern Virginia Commemoration

‘Abdu’l-Baha, (1844-1921), the beloved son of Baha’u’llah, God’s Messenger for this era, played a unique role in not only the Baha’i Faith but in all of religious history.

‘Abdu’l-Baha was deeply spiritual, was devoted to God and had special insights into Baha’u’llah’s teachings. He was a living example of generosity, unconditional love for all and selfless service to others. He became the perfect role model of how to put the Baha’i teachings into practice. To those who knew and loved Him, He became “the Master.”

When He passed away at the age of 77 on November 28, 1921, in Haifa, Israel (then Palestine), His funeral was attended by 10,000 mourners of numerous religious backgrounds. In spontaneous tributes to an admired personality, ‘Abdu’l-Baha was eulogized as One who led humanity to the “Way of Truth,” as a “pillar of peace” and the embodiment of “glory and greatness.”
