Language of Origin: Farsi (Persian)

Scripture: Writings of the Bb

The Persian Bayn was written while the Bb was imprisoned in Maku. The book contains elements of Bb law, discussion of religious concepts, and the glorification of "He whom God shall make manifest." It was one of the Bb's first works in which he clearly states that he is the messianic figure of the Twelfth Imam and the Mahdi which the Shi'as were expecting. With the claim, he also claimed the abrogation of the Islamic dispensation, and uses the new Bb law to abrogate Islamic law. Shoghi Effendi considered it a "eulogy of the Promised One", who had abrogated the laws of Islam, and prophesied about the coming of the Bah' Faith.
