What follows is my provisional translation (in other words, not official or authorized; see here for more) of a Tablet of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá written for Ḥájí Mihdí Námí after he had embraced the Bahá’í Faith. The original text has not been published; this facsimile, which was penned in ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s hand and served as the basis for the typescript I prepared underneath the translation below, was supplied to me by Lili Mahvash, the great-granddaughter of Ḥájí Mihdí Námí.
He is the All-Glorious
O servant of God! Give thanks to the Almighty that thou hast inhaled the sweet fragrance of the gardens of the Abhá Kingdom, obtaining new life thereby, and that thou hast beheld the radiance of the celestial realm with thine inner sight—that thou hast taken hold of the cup that brimmeth with mysteries, and moved that assemblage to rapture and ecstasy as thou thyself dancest with joy. Drink thou, drink with healthy relish!
Glory rest on thee.
