The root of the problem with the Haifan interpretation of the Baha'u'llah's Teachings is that it leaves out Abdul-Baha's actual 1912 Authentic Covenant, substituting the spurious will and testament forged by Shoghi Effendi's family in 1921.



The Bahai Faith can be Reformed but only by returning to the Interpretation clearly outlined by Abdul-Baha in Europe and America prior to his death. The evidence and record of his Interpretation has been preserved in the Star of the West for anyone willing to read with an independent mind, free of the decades of deception and brainwashing administered by the Haifans.

Long suppressed by Bahais of other denominations,
Reform Bahais have returned to, and renewed,

Abdul-Baha's 1912 Authentic Covenant
www.reformbahai.org/Covenant.html

"After Abdul-Baha—whenever the Universal House of Justice is organized
it will ward off differences."

Of the several Bahai denominations, the Reform Bahai Faith is the only
denomination that follows Abdul-Baha'is authentic Covenant— delivered in
New York, which is why it came to be called the City of the Covenant—
not the fraudulent will and testament of 1921.

"Address upon the Covenant" by Abdul-Baha in text format:

New York City, June 19th, 1912.
Translated by Dr. Ameen U. Fareed.
Parentheses supplied.


Tomorrow I wish to go to Montclair [New Jersey]. Today is the last day
in which we gather together with you to say farewell to you. Therefore,
I wish to expound for you an important question, and that question
concerns The Covenant.

In former cycles no distinct Covenant had been made in writing by the
Supreme Pen; no distinct personage had been appointed to be the Standard
differentiating falsehood from truth, so that whatsoever he was to say
was to stand as truth and that which he repudiated was to be known as
falsehood. At most, His Holiness Jesus Christ gave only an intimation, a
symbol, and that was but an indication of the solidity of Peter’s faith.
When he mentioned his faith, His Holiness said, “Thou art Peter”- which
means rock-“and upon this rock will I build my church.” This was a
sanction of Peter’s faith; it was not indicative of his (Peter) being
the expounder of the Book, but was a confirmation of Peter’s faith.

But in this dispensation of the Blessed Beauty, (Baha’u’llah) among its
distinctions is that He did not leave people in perplexity. He entered
into a covenant and testament with the people. He appointed a Center of
the Covenant. He wrote with His own pen and revealed it in the
Kitab-el-Akdas, the Book of Laws, the Book of the Covenant, appointing
him (Abdul-Baha) the Expounder of the Book. You must ask him Abdul-Baha)
regarding the meanings of the texts of the verses. Whatsoever he says is
correct. Outside of this, in numerous tablets He (Baha’u’llah) has
explicitly recorded it, with clear, sufficient, valid and forceful
statements. In the tablet of The Branch He explicitly states,
“Whatsoever The Branch says is right, or correct; and every person must
obey The Branch with his life, with his heart, with his tongue. Without
his will not a word shall anyone utter.” This is an explicit text of the
Blessed Beauty. So there is no rescue left for anybody. No soul shall,
of himself, speak anything. Whatsoever his (Abdul-Baha’s) tongue utters,
whatsoever his pen records, that is correct; according to the explicit
text of Baha’u’llah in the tablet of The Branch.

His Holiness Abraham covenanted with regard to Moses. His Holiness Moses
was the Promised One of Abraham, and He, Moses, covenanted with regard
to His Holiness Christ, saying that Christ was the Promised One. His
Holiness Christ covenanted with regard to His Holiness “The Paraclete,”
which means His Holiness Mohammed. His Holiness Mohammed covenanted as
regards The Bab, whom He called, “My Promised One,” His Holiness The
Bab, in all His books, in all His epistles, explicitly covenanted with
regard to the Blessed Beauty, Baha’u’llah—-that Baha’u’llah was the
Promised One of His Holiness The Bab. His Holiness Baha’u’llah
covenanted, not that I (Abdul-Baha) am the Promised One, but that
Abdul-Baha is the Expounder of the Book and The Center of His Covenant,
and that the Promised One of Baha’u’llah will appear after one thousand
or thousands of years. This is the Covenant which Baha’u’llah made. If a
person shall deviate, he is not acceptable at the Threshold of
Baha’u’llah. In case of difference—Abdul-Baha must be consulted. They
must revolve around his good pleasure. After Abdul-Baha—whenever the
Universal House of Justice is organized it will ward off differences.

Now I pray for you that GOD may aid you, may confirm you, may appoint
you for His service; that He may suffer you to be as radiant candles;
that He may accept you in His Kingdom; that He may make you the cause of
the spread of the light of Baha’u’llah in these countries, and that the
teachings of Baha’u’llah may be spread broadcast.

I pray for you, and I am pleased with all of you, each one, one by one;
and I pray that GOD may aid and confirm you. From Montclair I will come
back to you. New York is favored, I go away and I come back to it. The
friends in New York must appreciate this. At present, farewell to you!


Published November the Twelfth,
nineteen hundred and twelve.

The ninety-fifth anniversary of the birth
of Baha’u’llah.
