Original title: Surat Allah
Written by Baha'u'llah in the Edirne period

This tablet was written at the time when Baha'u'llah decided to cut off relations with his half-brother, Azal, as a result of the latter's relentless plotting and actions against him. In response, Baha'u'llah shifted his residence from the house of Amru'llah to that of Riza Bey on 10 March 1866 and went into seclusion for two months.
