Mirza Husayn ‘Ali Nuri, Baha’u’llah, Tablet of Tribulations (Law-i Balāyā)
Many of Baha’ullah’s tablets and epistles lament his suffering, which he compares to the trials of past prophets and messengers. Baha’u’llah’s favourite point of comparison in Islam is his namesake Imam Husayn, whose suffering he likens to his own and whose return he claims to be. However, in a tablet tentatively entitled the ‘Tablet of Tribulations’, Baha’u’llah contrasts his suffering and political persecution with the worldly success of Muhammad. This tablet is translated with brief annotations.
