 100 Years Ago, October 1, 1911, London — 'Abdu'l-Bahá performs a marriage before leaving London

October 1, 1911, London: Toward the end of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s visit in London a marriage was performed.

The bride journeyed from Baghdad accompanied by her uncle in order to meet her fiancé and be married

before ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s departure from England. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá said “Never have I united anyone in marriage

before, except my own daughters, but as I love you much, and you have rendered a great service to the

Kingdom of Abhá, both in this country and in other lands, I will perform your marriage ceremony today.

It is my hope that you may both continuing the blessed path of service.”
