Kitáb-i-Íqán - The Book of Certitude
Íqán Study Materials
The Íqán is the foremost doctrinal work of Bahá'u'lláh. It is easily the most important book on the Bahá'í teachings. It was translated into English in 1930 by Shoghi Effendi who urged the Bahá'ís to read it over and over again and to master it's every detail in order to be able to adequately present the Baha'i message.
The book is not long, about 4-6 hours of continuous reading -- and due to its "relative simplicity" is appropriate for most reading levels. Although it was addressed to a Muslim, Bahá'u'lláh used copious Biblical proofs and examples, making the book especially accessible to the Western reader.
