Today’s quiz looks into the details of some of the Baha’i Holy Places in Haifa and Akka. Abdu’l-Baha said that “Holy Places are undoubtedly centres of the outpouring of Divine grace, because on entering the illumined sites associated with martyrs and holy souls, and by observing reverence, both physical and spiritual, one’s heart is moved with great tenderness.”1
These 10 questions focus on the historical and sacred places associated with Baha’u’llah and Abdu’l-Baha in Haifa, Akka and surrounding areas. If you’re interested to know more, I’d recommend reading Door of Hope: The Baha’i Faith in the Holy Land.
