An excerpt from a tablet revealed by Baha’u’llah wherein He proclaims that the Qiblih of the Baha’i Faith is established for the entire five thousand century Baha’i Cycle follows here:

بناعقين نبايد توجه كرد قوله تعالي :
One should not pay attention to the enemies, He saith, exalted be He:

سوف تسمعون ندا ناعق لا تلتفتوا الیه دعوه بنفسه
Erelong you will hear the call of the clamorous impostor, don’t pay attention unto him, but leave him to himself

مقبلين الي قبلة الافاق قد تمت الحجة بهذه الحجة التي ظهرت بالحق
Set your faces toward Him Who is the Object (the Qiblih) of the adoration of all mankind, who has filled the Proof with this Proof that is revealed through the power of truth (God, al-Haqq)

و انتهت الانوار الي هذا الافق الذي منه اشرقت شمس العظمة و الاقتدار
The Lights have attained their consummation in this source (horizon) whence the splendor of (the) Might and (the) Grandeur is diffused.

طوبي لنفس تربي العباد بحدود الله التي نزلت في الزبر و الالواح
Blessed is the soul that hath been brought up as the servant with respect to God in that
Which has been sent down in the Scrolls and the Tablets.

قل لو يظهر في كل يوم احد لا يستقر امر الله في المدن و البلاد _
Say: If in each day another is manifested, the cause of God will not find rest in the cities and the lands.

هذا لظهور يظهر نفسه فيكل خمسمائه الف سنة مرة
This is the Revelation that manifests itself once every 500,000 years time, only once.

واحدة كذلك كشفنا القناع و ارفعنا الاحجاب
Only once, furthermore, we unveiled (kashfana)  the cover and lifted the veil.

طوبي لمن عرف مراد الله من عرفه يفرح قلبه
Blessed is the man that recognized (‘arif) the purpose of God, in recognition (‘irafah) rejoiced in his heart, and

و يستقيم علي الامر علي شان لايزله من في الابداع
been made firm in the cause such that he cannot be made to stumble by the entire creation.

قد كشفنا في هذا اللوح سرا من اسرار
هذا الظهورو سترنا ما هو المكنون لئلا ترتفع ضوضا الفجار
Verily We unveiled (kashfana) in this Tablet a secret wrapt in secrets.

This Revelation We have concealed that which is the Hidden, lest the tumult of the wicked rise.
