This is the precise spelling of the Name as given by Abdu'l Baha of the Name: "Ya Baha El-Abha"

This is often presented and accepted as "Ya Bahá'u'l Abhá".

There has been a good deal of discussion about which of the spellings is correct. It is my belief that both are acceptable.

We often see "El" - the original Arabic - as "Al" or "u'l" as we go through hundreds of sacred texts translated by different sources but accepted by the UHJ as official.
