The Life & Legacy of Bahiyyih Khanum – A Talk by Dr. Janet Khan

Here at Baha’i Blog, we love listening to Baha’i-inspired talks, so we were so excited when we heard that the LSA of the Gold Coast had invited Dr. Janet Khan to give a talk at the Gold Coast Baha’i Centre in Australia.

In this talk, Dr. Janet Khan gives a talk on the extraordinary life and legacy of Bahiyyih Khanum, the daughter of Baha’u’llah. Bahiyyih Khanum, given the title the Greatest Holy Leaf, contributed significantly in the early years of the Faith. Her steadfastness during a critical period in the history of the Faith and during her appointment as the head of the Baha’i Faith testifies to the greatness of her character.

The Greatest Holy Leaf is a superb role model to men and women everywhere who seek creative ways to deal with the forces of today’s society.

Dr. Janet Khan is also the author of The Prophet’s Daughter – The Life and Legacy of Bahiyyih Khanum.
