Contents: I A handwriting analysis of the testament in 1930: The fictitious Will and Testament of Abdul Baha is discovered to be a falsification by a London handwriting expert; Further external, indirect proof of falsification; The reaction to the guardian of these accusations; Time works against the guardian --
II Historical proof of the fraudulence of the alleged testament of Abdul Baha: A comparison of the alleged testament of the master with the famous falsification of the "Constantinian Grant" (c.750 a.D.) shows that this served as a model for the forger of Abdu Baha's alleged testament --
III Linguistic proof of the falsification of the last will of the master: A comparison from excerpts from the alleged testament of Abdul Baha with phrases from God Passes By, the major work of Shoghi Effendi, supplies further proof for what is probably the greatest falsification of the second millennium a.D.; The "wrath of God and his vengeance" exist only in the Will and Testament of the pseudo Abdul Baha and in Shoghi Effendi's God Passes By, but not according to the master, the historical Abdul Baha --
IV Critical comments about the fictitious will and testament of Abdul Baha: The leitmotiv is: keep a distance from those who think things over critically; Outrageous statements of the non-historical Abdul Baha about his fellow man; Further contradictions in the alleged testament of Abdul Baha; The alleged testament of Abdul Baha exercises the strongest involvement in politics; Comparison in the style and structure in the alleged testament of Abdul Baha with that found in Shoghi's works, God Passes By and The Promised Day is Come; "Le Style c'est l'homme" or "the style is the man"; Built-in safeguards in the alleged testament of Abdul Baha; Opinions concerning the alleged testament of Abdul Baha; There can be no further interpreter of the word of God after Abdul Baha; In the Kitab-i-Akdas, the most holy book, no omission is possible --
V The difference in publication of the testament of Baha'u'llah and that of the alleged testament of Abdul Baha --
VI What is a Bahai? The goal of bahai religion according to Abdul Baha and according to Shoghi Effendi: The best proof of the consequences of this goal is the fate of the Bahai movement in the USSR. VII Shoghi Effendi in the first months and years after Abdul Baha's death: The time between Abdul Baha's demise (November 28, 1921) and Shoghi's return to Palestine (During the first half of January, 1922) is filled with working out the first half of the alleged testament of Abdul Baha; From the end of March/beginning of April, 1922 until December, 1922 Shoghi was in Europe. Here, the second draft of the alleged testament of Abdul Baha is completed (in Oxford or London); The work of Dr. Esslemont is influenced by Shoghi; The first edition of Baha'u'llah and the New Era is a compromise; A further falsification by the Guardian: the alleged Last Major Tablet of Abdul Baha: Protect the Cause that is God's; In the Iron Age, the Bahais come under the brazen heel of the Guardian; His fellow Persians heat up the opposition against him; thus he has credential letters and censorship brought against them; A 25-year old as the guardian of the Bahai religion?; The initial years in Shoghi's later vision; Shoghi assists in the name to monopolize the name Bahai in a trial of the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahais of the USA and Canada and by the Spiritual Assembly of the Bahais of New York in New York against the Free Bahais Sohrab/Chanler; Excommunication by Shoghi by half the extended family of Abdul Baha; Ruhi Afnan, the grandson of Abdul Baha, and for many years secretary to Shoghi Effendi, is the first to be ousted; Shoghi's relationship to the Christian-Western world of today; Shoghi Effendi, the "politician"; Shoghi and money; Shoghi in the light of his environment; Opnions about Shoghi in the Bahai Administration's own literature; Shoghi in London in 1957 and Abdul Baha in London in 1912: a confrontation --
VIII The new image of the Bahai religion after Abdul Baha's death: How The Covenant of God in the Religion of Manifestation is faked; The testament that was discovered on the day of the master's death is much shorter than the translation which was distributed from 1925 on; The second letter of the guardian shows the new direction; The covenant breaker Mohammed Ali, who is presented as so dangerous in the alleged testament of Abdul Baha, behaves like a lamb after the death of the master; The necessity of the re-education of the Bahais after the demise of Abdul Baha; the Bahai teachings are fool's gold; Shoghi Effendi: a prince of the church, but no religious leader; The second edition of the Esslemont book is improved; A name is erased in the Esslemont book; A fraudulent phrase in translations of Baha'u'llah's writing Seven Valleys; Concerning the administrative order of Bahai; The administrative order, a "state within a state"; The administration affects the Bahai communities as frost affects a spring night --
IX The decline of the Bahai religion, the antithesis of the "Decline of Christianity": The diminution of power is not a phenomenon of decline; The separation of the church and the states is likewise not a phenomenon of decline; The "Christians are blind," but the Bahais are stone-blind; The infallibility of the Pope matches that of the guardian; The Bahai religion is not a monolithic block; Modern factual knowledge is taught neither by the Bahais nor in the church; The Bahai teachings of the administration are very different from the teachings of the founder of the Bahai religion; The Christian churches in the USSR are permitted, the Bahai religion is prohibited; The difference in views of the Bahai camp is greater than that between the modern and traditional Protestant theologies; The Bahai administration's medieval way of asserting authority; The fifth principle of Baha'u'llah, "religion must be in accord with science and reason" is swept away by the Bahai administration --
X The Bahai religion is altered to function as "Shoghism": What today is presented as the Bahai religion is, in truth, "Shoghism"; Shoghism, the alleged Bahai religion as practiced today; Censorship, the prohibition of political activity and excommunication are not milestones for a new world order --
XI A humanity renewed by religion creates a new society as a foundation for a new world.
Responsibility: Hermann Zimmer ; English [translation] by Jeannine Blackwell ; rev. by Karen Gasser and Gordon Campbell.
