About

Kashl is an anthology of Shaykhi, Babi, and Baha’i writings not familiar to English-speakers.  A kashkul is an alms bowl, such as the one used by Baha’u’llah during his sojourn in the mountains of northern Iraq (pictured in the title above).  It is also what some Shi`i scholars, like Shaykh Ahmad al-Ahsa’i, called anthologies of their favorite writings.

If you use original translations from this site (whether in quotation or in reference), please make note of it.  All the translations are original unless noted otherwise.  Use the Comments section to suggest edits, provide context, and illuminate content.  Consider the Comments your workshop and Kashkúl the provider of raw material.
