Tablet of Visitation - 'Abdu'l-Baha

Nothing has been found in the Bahá’í Writings requiring the friends to stand and face the Qiblih whenever the Tablets of Visitation are recited. No issue should be made of this matter when a Holy Day observance is being held. However, when one is actually in, or within the precincts of one of the Holy Shrines, it is an act of simple reverence to stand and face that Shrine when the Tablet of Visitation is recited.
(Universal House of Justice, Holy Day Observances, 15 June 1992)


While it is customary for the Tablets of Visitation to be recited at the conclusion of the Holy Day programs held at the Bahá’í World Centre, as well as in countries of the Middle East, this practice is not binding upon Bahá’í communities elsewhere, nor has a specific time been fixed for the recitations to occur.
(Universal House of Justice, Holy Day Observances, 15 June 1992)


Whoso reciteth this prayer with lowliness and fervour will bring gladness and joy to the heart of this Servant; it will be even as meeting Him face to face.
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Selections from the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, p. 318)
