'Abdu'l-Bahá was, Shoghi Effendi explains, "the unerring Interpreter of Bahá'u'llah's writings, "the perfect Exemplar" of Bahá'u'llah's teachings, "the embodiment of every Bahá'i ideal," and the incarnation of every Bahá'i virtue." His reality is best described by the title "Mystery of God" given to Him by Bahá'u'llah a title signifying that, although 'Abdu'l-Bahá is not a prophet, He combines, blends, and harmonizes the seemingly incompatible characteristics of human nature and superhuman knowledge and perfection. 
'Abdu'l-Bahá was the son of Bahá'u'llah and became the center of his father's Covenant when he died in 1892. He is also known as the "Master" and the "Exemplar" and as such is held in high esteem by all Bahá'is. He lived until 1923
