I am not the author of this page, but wanted to comment on its notability. The Hands of the Cause are the highest appointed position in the Bahá'í Faith, and many other Hands of the Cause have their own pages (can be seen by going to Hands of the Cause. I do think the notability guidelines are met. My concern with this page though is that it might be a copyright violation from this page [1]. I have a feeling however that the author of that page is the editor who posted the content here, so he may choose to license the text under the GFDL. Also the text has to be heavily cleaned up to make it NPOV, but that can be done with some editing. Regards, -- Jeff3000 03:49, 6 October 2006 (UTC)

I will try to paraphrase, wikify, and NPOVify the content, but it will take some time. -- Jeff3000 04:05, 6 October 2006 (UTC)
