4 Divine Worlds

4 Divine Worlds
 
the world of time (zaman), which is the one that hath both a beginning (awwal) and an end (ukhra); the world of duration (dahr), which hath a beginning, but whose end is not revealed; the world of perpetuity (sarmand), whose begining is not to be seen but which is known to have an end; and the world of eternity (azal), neither a begining nor an end of which is visible
 
Other have called these the worlds of the Heavenly Court (Lahut), of the Empyrean Heaven (Jabarut), of the Kingdom of the Angels (Malakut), and of the mortal world (Nasut)." (Baha' Allah [Ghail tr.], SV pg. 25, HV pg. 29 )
