HAND OF THE CAUSE ZIKRULLAH KHADEM

They are absolutely priceless and at times very moving" Each tape is filled with a deep spirituality, shared by someone whose love for the Beloved Guardian knew no bounds. In his own very special loving style of delivery he brings the listener ever closer to Shoghi Effendi. It would be difficult to find a more inspiring and uplifting set of talks by a soul described by the House of Justice as an "indefatigable and fearless defender of the Faith".
