"The Hidden Words" by Baháʼu'lláh is a work consisting of short passages revealed by Bahá’u’lláh in Persian and Arabic in 1857/58 during His exile in Baghdad, translated by Shoghi Effendi.
ʻAbdu'l-Bahá, Baháʼu'lláh's son and the authorized interpreter of His teachings The Hidden Words is "a treasury of divine mysteries" and that when one ponders its contents, "the doors of the mysteries will open."
The Hidden Words are like precious gems which are compared to a garden full of roses, as Baháʼu'lláh loved roses a lot. Each person who reads these words are like a nightingale who then ponders on it's contents, gets to know oneself and chants the name of the Almighty. The same concept has been tried to illustrate in the painting which has been used the cover for the book.

An another version of the same book in Gujarati was also being designed but the cover needed to be more royal and premium feel to it. The element of roses was used to give a decorative feel to the book.
