Abstract A notable, and lengthy, tablet from 1863.
Notes In 1863, on the first day of His arrival at the garden of Ridvan, Bahá'u'lláh revealed a singularly important Tablet known as Suriy-i Sabr (Surih of Patience), or Lawh-i Ayyub (the Tablet of Job), thus named in memory of one of the survivors of the first Nayriz martyrdoms, Haji Muhammad Taqiy-i Nayrizi, surnamed Ayyub. [- Ahang Rabbani]
