“ The nobility of man and his spiritual development will lead him in the future to such a position that no individual could enjoy eating his food or resting at home while knowing that there was one person somewhere in the world without food or shelter."
“The arrangements of the circumstances of the people must be such that poverty shall disappear, and that every one as far as possible, according to his position and rank, shall be comfortable. Whilst the nobles and others in high rank are in easy circumstances, the poor also should be able to get their daily food and not be brought to the extremities of hunger”. -'Abdu'l-Bahá, 'Abdu'l-Bahá in London, p. 29
Bahá'u'lláh's mission and that of the Baha'i Faith has been the creation of such a new race of humanity through the spiritualization of all humankind and the ascendence of vital values of soul. It can happen, but we must work for it.
“All the peoples of the world will enjoy like interests, and the poor shall possess a portion of the comforts of life. …the poor will have at least their comfortable and pleasant places of abode; …the needy shall have their necessities and no longer live in poverty. In short, a readjustment of the economic order will come about….” - ‘Abdu'l-Bahá, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 102
“We see amongst us men who are overburdened with riches on the one hand, and on the other those unfortunate ones who starve with nothing; those who possess several stately palaces, and those who have not where to lay their head. Some we find with numerous courses of costly and dainty food; whilst others can scarce find sufficient crusts to keep them alive. Whilst some are clothed in velvets, furs and fine linen, others have insufficient, poor and thin garments with which to protect them from the cold. This condition of affairs is wrong, and must be remedied.” - 'Abdu'l-Bahá, Paris Talks, p. 151
With the establishment of the Most Great Peace and the spiritualization of the peoples of the world, man will become a noble being adorned with divine virtues and perfections. This is one of the fruits of the Revelation of Bahá'u'lláh, promised by Him.
It is Bahá'u'lláh's mission to create such a new race of men.” - Adib Taherzadeh, The Revelation of Bahá'u'lláh, vol. 3, p. 126
