The Bahai Truth

All That They Didn't Tell You About the Faith

Kitab Al Aqdas: Verse 53 (Inital Part)

Should differences arise amongst you over any matter, refer it to God while the Sun still shineth above the horizon of this Heaven and, when it hath set, refer ye to whatsoever hath been sent down by Him. This, verily, is sufficient unto the peoples of the world.

Critique 1: Here the mortal Bahaullah is compared to the Sun. Now when the sun sets there is darkness!

Critique 2: This is intended to be a conflict resolution verse which concludes in conflict itself. There will not be any conflict as far as the sun is there and in his absence one has to refer to whatever is sent down by him(probably referring to Aqdas). But what if the conflict is regarding the interpretation of Aqdas ???
