He Cometh with Clouds - Gary L Matthews - One Para

Baha'u'llah foretold that the house He occupied while living in Baghdad.. would one day be 'abased' by enemies of the Faith, that the 'veil of [its] sanctity' would be 'rent asunder' by them in such manner as to 'cause tears to flow from every discerning eye'. About the time of 'Abdul- Baha's passing, Shiih Muslims in Baghdad- seemingly intent on vindicating Baha'u'llah's prediction- occupied the building, expelled its Baha'i owners and defied a later high court ruling unanimously denouncing the seizure as illegal. Although Baha'is are certain they will one day regain their rightful property, they have now been barred from this sacred and historic site for more than seventy years. (197:4)
