On his last visit to Haifa in 1891, Bahá’u’lláh pitched His tent near the Carmelite Monastery and wrote the first part of the Tablet of Carmel, the charter for the establishment of the world administrative and spiritual center of the Bahá'í Faith.
The Tablet opens with a powerful pronouncement:
"All glory be to this Day, the Day in which the fragrances of mercy have been wafted over all created things, a Day so blest that past ages and centuries can never hope to rival it, a Day in which the countenance of the Ancient of Days hath turned towards His holy seat. Thereupon the voices of all created things, and beyond them those of the Concourse on High, were heard calling aloud: 'Haste Thee, O Carmel, for lo, the light of the countenance of God, the Ruler of the Kingdom of Names and Fashioner of the heavens, hath been lifted upon thee.'"(31)
