Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.

Abd al Ḥosayn Ayati (1871—1953) was a Baha'i missionary, journalist, author and teacher. After conversion to the Baha'i Faith, he spent 18 years as missionary and was a close companion of `Abdu'l-Bahá, who conferred on him the titles of "Raʾīs-al-moballeḡīn" (Chief of Missionaries) and "Avarih" (Wanderer).
He later became a Muslim and an opponent of the Baha'i Faith, being considered a Covenant-breaker. He returned to Tehran and spent the rest of his life as a secondary school teacher. During this period he wrote many works of poetry and prose, including Kashf al-Hial, a three volume work refuting the Bahá'í Faith.
