نص الكتاب الأقدس

۱۱ قد عفونا عنكم صلوة الايات اذا ظهرت اذكروا الله بالعظمة والاقتدار انّه هو السّميع البصير. قولوا العظمة لله ربّ ما يرى وما لا يرى ربّ العالمين.  التلاوة 

11  We have absolved you from the requirement of performing the Prayer of the Signs. On the appearance of fearful natural events call ye to mind the might and majesty of your Lord, He Who heareth and seeth all, and say "Dominion is God's, the Lord of the seen and the unseen, the Lord of creation".   Kitab-i-Aqdas, paragraph #11

۱۲ كتب عليكم الصّلوة فرادى قد رفع حكم الجماعة الاّ في صلوة الميّت انّه لهو الامر الحكيم. ۸ التلاوة 

12  It hath been ordained that obligatory prayer is to be performed by each of you individually. Save in the Prayer for the Dead, the practice of congregational prayer hath been annulled. He, of a truth, is the Ordainer, the All-Wise.   Kitab-i-Aqdas, paragraph #12

۱۳ قد عفا الله عن النّسآء حين ما يجدن الدّم الصّوم والصّلوة ولهنّ ان يتوضّأن ويسبّحن خمساً وتسعين مرّة من زوال إلى زوال سبحان الله ذي الطّلعة والجمال هذا ما قدّر في الكتاب ان انتم من العالمين.  التلاوة 

13  God hath exempted women who are in their courses from obligatory prayer and fasting. Let them, instead, after performance of their ablutions, give praise unto God, repeating ninety-five times between the noon of one day and the next "Glorified be God, the Lord of Splendour and Beauty". Thus hath it been decreed in the Book, if ye be of them that comprehend.   Kitab-i-Aqdas, paragraph #13

۱٤ ولكم ولهنّ في الاسفار اذا نزلتم واسترحتم المقام الامن مكان كلّ صلوة سجدة واحدة واذكروا فيها سبحان الله ذي العظمة والاجلال والموهبة والافضال والّذي عجز يقول سبحان الله انّه يكفيه بالحقّ انّه لهو الكافي الباقي الغفور الرّحيم. ٩ وبعد اتمام السّجود لكم ولهنّ ان تقعدوا على هيكل التّوحيد وتقولوا ثماني عشرة مرّة سبحان الله ذي الملك والملكوت كذلك يبيّن الله سبل الحقّ والهدى وانّها انتهت إلى سبيل واحد وهو هذا الصّراط المستقيم. اشكروا الله بهذا الفضل العظيم. احمدوا الله بهذه الموهبة الّتي احاطت السّموات والارضين. اذكروا الله بهذه الرّحمة الّتي سبقت العالمين.  التلاوة 

14  When travelling, if ye should stop and rest in some safe spot, perform ye -- men and women alike -- a single prostration in place of each unsaid Obligatory Prayer, and while prostrating say "Glorified be God, the Lord of Might and Majesty, of Grace and Bounty". Whoso is unable to do this, let him say only "Glorified be God"; this shall assuredly suffice him. He is, of a truth, the all-sufficing, the ever-abiding, the forgiving, compassionate God. Upon completing your prostrations, seat yourselves cross-legged -- men and women alike -- and eighteen times repeat "Glorified be God, the Lord of the kingdoms of earth and heaven". Thus doth the Lord make plain the ways of truth and guidance, ways that lead to one way, which is this Straight Path. Render thanks unto God for this most gracious favour; offer praise unto Him for this bounty that hath encompassed the heavens and the earth; extol Him for this mercy that hath pervaded all creation.   Kitab-i-Aqdas, paragraph #14

۱٥ قل قد جعل الله مفتاح الكنز حبّي المكنون لو انتم تعرفون. لولا المفتاح لكان مكنوناً في ازل الازال لو انتم توقنون. قل هذا لمطلع الوحي ومشرق الاشراق الّذي به اشرقت الافاق لو انتم تعلمون. ۱٠ انّ هذا لهو القضآء المثبت وبه ثبت كلّ قضآء محتوم.  التلاوة 

15  Say: God hath made My hidden love the key to the Treasure; would that ye might perceive it! But for the key, the Treasure would to all eternity have remained concealed; would that ye might believe it! Say: This is the Source of Revelation, the Dawning-place of Splendour, Whose brightness hath illumined the horizons of the world. Would that ye might understand! This is, verily, that fixed Decree through which every irrevocable decree hath been established.   Kitab-i-Aqdas, paragraph #15

۱٦ يا قلم الاعلى قل يا ملأ الانشآء قد كتبنا عليكم الصّيام ايّاماً معدودات وجعلنا النّيروز عيداً لكم بعد اكمالها كذلك اضآئت شمس البيان من افق الكتاب من لدن مالك المبدء والمآب. واجعلوا الايّام الزّآئدة عن الشّهور قبل شهر الصّيام انّا جعلناها مظاهر الهآء بين اللّيالي والايّام. لذا ما تحدّدت بحدود السّنة والشّهور ينبغي لاهل البهاء ان يطعموا فيها انفسهم وذوي القربى ثمّ الفقرآء والمساكين ويهلّلنّ ويكبّرنّ ويسبّحنّ ويمجّدنّ ربّهم بالفرح والانبساط. ۱۱ اذا تمّت ايّام الاعطآء قبل الامساك فليدخلنّ في الصّيام كذلك حكم مولى الانام. ليس على المسافر والمريض والحامل والمرضع من حرج عفا الله عنهم فضلاً من عنده انّه لهو العزيز الوهّاب.  التلاوة 

16  O Pen of the Most High! Say: O people of the world! We have enjoined upon you fasting during a brief period, and at its close have designated for you Naw-Rúz as a feast. Thus hath the Day-Star of Utterance shone forth above the horizon of the Book as decreed by Him Who is the Lord of the beginning and the end. Let the days in excess of the months be placed before the month of fasting. We have ordained that these, amid all nights and days, shall be the manifestations of the letter Há, and thus they have not been bounded by the limits of the year and its months. It behoveth the people of Bahá, throughout these days, to provide good cheer for themselves, their kindred and, beyond them, the poor and needy, and with joy and exultation to hail and glorify their Lord, to sing His praise and magnify His Name; and when they end -- these days of giving that precede the season of restraint -- let them enter upon the Fast. Thus hath it been ordained by Him Who is the Lord of all mankind. The traveller, the ailing, those who are with child or giving suck, are not bound by the Fast; they have been exempted by God as a token of His grace. He, verily, is the Almighty, the Most Generous.   Kitab-i-Aqdas, paragraph #16

۱٧ هذه حدود الله الّتي رقمت من القلم الاعلى في الزّبر والالواح. تمسّكوا باوامر الله واحكامه ولا تكونوا من الّذين اخذوا اصول انفسهم ونبذوا اصول الله ورآئهم بما اتّبعوا الظّنون والاوهام. كفّوا انفسكم عن الاكل والشّرب من الطّلوع الى الافول ايّاكم ان يمنعكم الهوى عن هذا الفضل الّذي قدّر في الكتاب. ۱۲ التلاوة 

17  These are the ordinances of God that have been set down in the Books and Tablets by His Most Exalted Pen. Hold ye fast unto His statutes and commandments, and be not of those who, following their idle fancies and vain imaginings, have clung to the standards fixed by their own selves, and cast behind their backs the standards laid down by God. Abstain from food and drink from sunrise to sundown, and beware lest desire deprive you of this grace that is appointed in the Book.   Kitab-i-Aqdas, paragraph #17

۱٨ قد كتب لمن دان بالله الدّيّان ان يغسل في كلّ يوم يديه ثمّ وجهه ويقعد مقبلاً الى الله ويذكر خمساً وتسعين مرّة الله كذلك حكم فاطر السّماء اذ استوى على اعراش الاسمآء بالعظمة والاقتدار. كذلك توضّأوا للصّلوة امراً من الله الواحد المختار.  التلاوة 

18  It hath been ordained that every believer in God, the Lord of Judgement, shall, each day, having washed his hands and then his face, seat himself and, turning unto God, repeat "Alláh-u-Abhá" ninety-five times. Such was the decree of the Maker of the Heavens when, with majesty and power, He established Himself upon the thrones of His Names. Perform ye, likewise, ablutions for the Obligatory Prayer; this is the command of God, the Incomparable, the Unrestrained.   Kitab-i-Aqdas, paragraph #18

۱٩ قد حرّم عليكم القتل والزّنا ثمّ الغيبة والافترآء اجتنبوا عمّا نهيتم عنه في الصّحآئف والالواح.  التلاوة 

19  Ye have been forbidden to commit murder or adultery, or to engage in backbiting or calumny; shun ye, then, what hath been prohibited in the holy Books and Tablets.   Kitab-i-Aqdas, paragraph #19

٢٠ قد قسّمنا المواريث على عدد الزّآء منها قدّر لذرّيّاتكم من كتاب الطّآء على عدد المقت وللازواج من كتاب الحآء على عدد التّآء والفآء وللابآء من كتاب الزّآء على عدد التّآء والكاف ۱۳ وللامّهات من كتاب الواو على عدد الرّفيع وللاخوان من كتاب الهآء عدد الشّين وللاخوات من كتاب الدّال عدد الرّآء والميم وللمعلّمين من كتاب الجيم عدد القاف والفآء كذلك حكم مبشّري الّذي يذكرني في اللّيالي والاسحار. انّا لمّا سمعنا ضجيج الذّرّيّات في الاصلاب زدنا ضعف ما لهم ونقصنا عن الاخرى انّه لهو المقتدر على ما يشآء يفعل بسلطانه كيف اراد.  التلاوة 

20  We have divided inheritance into seven categories: to the children, We have allotted nine parts comprising five hundred and forty shares; to the wife, eight parts comprising four hundred and eighty shares; to the father, seven parts comprising four hundred and twenty shares; to the mother, six parts comprising three hundred and sixty shares; to the brothers, five parts or three hundred shares; to the sisters, four parts, four parts or two hundred and forty shares; and to the teachers, three parts or one hundred and eighty shares. Such was the ordinance of My Forerunner, He Who extolleth My Name in the night season and at the break of day. When We heard the clamour of the children as yet unborn, We doubled their share and decreased those of the rest. He, of a truth, hath power to ordain whatsoever He desireth, and He doeth as He pleaseth by virtue of His sovereign might.   Kitab-i-Aqdas, paragraph #20
