Baha’i Blog Quiz: The Bab

Hey, hey, hey Baha’i Blog readers! Here at Baha’i Blog, we love quizzes, so we’ve decided to start having a regular quiz post to help you all gauge just how much you may know about certain topics relating to the Faith.

In our very first Baha’i Blog quiz, we dedicate it to the life of the Bab.

Go ahead – take the quiz and let us know if you enjoyed it in the ‘comments’ section below. Good luck!

About the Author

Naysan is the editor of Baha'i Blog and he has worked in various avenues of media for two decades. He’s passionate about using the arts and media to support and explore the teachings of the Baha’i Faith and he has produced and collaborated on popular music projects like the "DawnBreaker Collective" and the successful Ruhi-inspired sequence of "MANA" albums. His experience as a producer for CNN was invaluable while working on a number of special projects for the Baha’i World Centre, including the "Building Momentum" and "Pilgrimage: A Sacred Experience" videos. If there’s a media-related Baha’i project out there, chances are that Naysan was involved with it somehow!

    1. We are planning for this unforgettable commémoration. And the quiz will fit in. The history of the Bab is the first drop of this vast océan which fascinated me.

  1. Hahaha brilliant man brilliant! I super love trivia quizes about the faith! Awesome job Naysan!!! …and I obviously need to revise a couple of things since i made two mistakes :S 😛

  2. Great quiz. Always good to get one in when you’ve got a spare 5 minutes. Keep’m coming guys. Also what does ” one ” win when ” one ” achieves a perfect score 😉

  3. Great work Nayse, awesome to bring this in as we remember the heroism of the Bab that one day the whole world will come to admire. I love the questionnaire app, did you develop it?

    1. Thanks Kim, glad u like it! The app was developed by a guy I work with called Siddharth – it’s very nice isn’t it?! Thanks for your support Kim, and please help us let everyone know about the quiz and Baha’i Blog. Cheers!

  4. Very nice! I love history and trivia. I hope you guys continue this, but don’t afraid to make them a little harder! haha

    1. Thanks Heather,

      Glad you enjoyed it!

      We’re trying to do a lot more of these, perhaps once every Baha’i month before Feast, so they could potentially be used at Feast as an activity if needed. We just posted another one about ‘Abdul-Baha’s travels to the West’ and it’s our latest post so you’ll see it at the top of the home page. Here’s the link:

      Thanks for your support, and also who’s ‘Husayn’?

  5. Dear Naysan,
    Thanks for the cute quiz. I’ll let my daughter try it. I hope there will be more difficult quizzes in the future.


  6. Great work. It’s important that someone challenges us and that we rise to that challenge and find out what we know, and what we don’t know.
    I’ve worked on gathering Q & A on Baha’i subjects for years. I’d be happy to share these with you.
    One thing you might think about – to spur folks to investigate further – is to include the reference in the Baha’i literature for the answer.
    You might also include a place where one can privately report an error. (sorry… I’m an editor!)

  7. This was great Naysan! I’m going to do this quiz with my BESS kids next week. They’re going to love it! Keep up the great work!

  8. Put Bahai blog on my husbands iPad and we have just sat together and answered the questions.Excellent idea especially for Don who had a severe accident over 20yrs ago but has retained his love of the faith even though he cannot read write walk or talk apart from a few words. This allows him to still be part of the faith with like minded people so many thanks and keep up the good work.

    1. Hi Margaret and Don, thanks so much for your support and encouragement! I’m so happy to hear that Baha’i Blog has helped Don especially continue to be a part of this wonderful Faith!

  9. I enjoyed the quiz! Hope to see more more of them.
    Need to send it to my kids as well.
    Thank you so much Nayson jan.

  10. Really great app, got 7/10.
    thinking about using this app at our Birth of The Bab Celebration tonight.

  11. Never too late. I just discovered this quiz on the Bab and got a good mark (100%!)due mainly to recently reading the Abridged Nabil’s Narrative. I have found it hard to just dip into the big book of The Dawnbreakers so I love the compact (195 pages), abridged and detailed version compiled by Zena Sorabjee. Thanks for the quizz love from Perth Australia. Xx

    1. Awesome! So glad you liked the quiz and so glad you’ve discovered Baha’i Blog! If you haven’t already, don’t forget to sign up to our mailing list, and follow us on Social media for more posts and updates! Thanks again!

  12. Dearest Naysan
    Thank you so much for all your hard work and devotion. We were travelling by car from Sydney to Melbourne and discovered these quizzes. We had fun and learned a lot.
    With Baha’i love
