Hand of the Cause of God Furutan
To read the biography of Hand of the Cause of God ‘Alí-Akbar Furútan (1905–2003), written by his daughter Iran Furútan Muhájir, is to read the story of the Bahá’í Faith in the twentieth century and to catch a glimpse of a man who devoted himself wholly and selflessly to the service of humanity.
As a dynamic and fearless youth in Iran and the Russian territories, as the secretary of the National Spiritual Assembly of Iran for the better part of twenty-two years, as a Hand of the Cause of God appointed by the beloved Guardian, Mr. Furútan served with a wise and loving manner that left a lifelong impression on all with whom he came in contact. His tireless efforts and steadfast devotion are not only documented here but are brought to life in rich and loving detail. The result is not merely the definitive biography of a beloved figure but a gift to the Bahá’ís of the world.
