Bahá'u'lláh exhorts His followers to consort,
with amity and concord and without discrimination,
with the adherents of all religions;
warns them to guard against fanaticism, sedition, pride, dispute and contention;
inculcates upon them immaculate cleanliness,
strict truthfulness, spotless chastity, trustworthiness;
hospitality, fidelity, courtesy,
forbearance, justice and fairness;
counsels them to be "even as the fingers of one hand and the limbs of one body";
calls upon them to arise and serve His Cause; and assures them of His undoubted aid.
