The immortal Lua, mother-teacher of the American Bahá'í Community, herald of the dawn of the Day of the Covenant, has been ceremoniously and reverently transferred by Egyptian brethren representing the local Bahá'í communities to the immediate vicinity of the grave of far-famed &Abu'l-Fadl in the newly established Bahá'í cemetery in Cairo. The &Isma'iliyyih believers together with Assembly delegates of Egypt have held an inaugural ceremony at the second Bahá'í cemetery allocated by the Egyptian authorities. The sacred rights of the persecuted, expelled community, repeatedly denied legitimate burial, are now vindicated. The progressive emancipation of the Faith of Bahá'u'lláh from the traditional shackles of religious orthodoxy is increasingly evident and humbly, gratefully recognized by followers of the Faith the world over.
