‘Abdu’l-Bahá about the future of Haifa

About Haifa’s Development
Sunday, 13 Jaddí 1298 [4 January 1920], Haifa (During a Visit to the Shrine of the Exalted One [the Báb])

[‘Abdu’l-Bahá] stated:
Haifa will develop to such a degree that this mountain will be covered entirely in light. From here to ‘Akká will be connected by roads and on each side trees will be planted. This will be become the most important port in the world. Innumerable ships will come and go. I now see ships have anchored in this bay and with utmost humility and modesty, monarchs will come to visit of the Shrine of the Exalted One [the Báb].
Mrs. Parsons asked, “Where will the Mashriqu’l-Adhkar be built?” [‘Abdu’l-Bahá] replied, “Near the Shrine of the Exalted One. On one side, the largest and the most important scientific school will be raised.” Then He added, “On the other side, there will be an asylum for the invalids and on the opposite side an orphanage.”
