The station of a believer’s non-Baha’i parents in the next world

Thou hast mentioned the station of parents in the next world. One of the special bounties of this Revelation is that whoever accepteth the Dayspring of the Cause, his parents, although they may not have attained the recognition of the Revelation, the splendours of the Sun of divine favor will be vouchsafed unto them. This is one of His bounties bestowed upon His lovers. Render thanks and be of those who are grateful. 
- Baha’u’llah  (Quoted in a Memorandum from the Research Department of the Universal House of Justice, dated 28 August 1991)
