My Name is ‘Abdu’l‑Bahá

My name is ‘Abdu’l‑Bahá. My qualification is ‘Abdu’l‑Bahá. My reality is ‘Abdu’l‑Bahá. My praise is ‘Abdu’l‑Bahá. Thraldom to the Blessed Perfection is my glorious and refulgent diadem, and servitude to all the human race my perpetual religion… No name, no title, no mention, no commendation have I, nor will ever have, except ‘Abdu’l‑Bahá. This is my longing. This is my greatest yearning. This is my eternal life. This is my everlasting glory.

statement of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, addressed to some believers in America, quoted in The World Order of Bahá’u’lláh
