10 Personal Reflections that Refer to the Bab (Part 2)

“Personal Reflections on the Baha’i Faith from Around the World” is a Baha’i Blog initiative in honor of the bicentenary anniversaries of the Births of Baha’u’llah and the Bab, Prophet-founders of the Baha’i Faith. 

In this initiative, we share portraits of Baha’is and their friends from different countries and territories all over the world, and a few of their words about what the Baha’i Faith means to them or how it has touched their lives. 

We shared 200 portraits in 2017 to celebrate the Birth of Baha’u’llah, and we’ve been sharing another 200 portraits this year in honor of the Birth of the Bab. Our hope is that by sharing these pictures and excerpts, we will answer the call from the Universal House of Justice to communicate “a sense of what it means for humanity that these two Luminaries [the Bab and Baha’u’llah] rose successively above the horizon of the world.” (from a letter dated 18 May 2016 to all National Spiritual Assemblies)

Stay up to date by following the “Personal Reflections” social media pages on FacebookInstagram or Twitter.

As the bicentennial celebrations for the Birth of the Bab draw nearer, we wanted to showcase another 10 portraits that have shared so far in which the participants speak about the Bab and His Revelation.

  1. a great initiative and important historical record. We did some similar in 1992 in the UK and collected video interviews of 100+ believers as part of an interactive Centenary exhibition in Liverpool. Sadly our national archive seems to have mislaid them.
