Hands of the Cause of God – Volume 1: The Heroic Age through 1951

Hands of the Cause of God – Volume 1: The Heroic Age through 1951 is the first part of a four-part documentary series about The Hands of the Cause of God.

This outstanding four-part documentary series recounts the lives of the Hands of the Cause of God within the historical context of the Baha’i Faith. Told through first-person interviews and incredible never-before-seen archival footage, their incredible lives and service come to life in a powerful way, and which will inspire future generations.

Volume 1: The Heroic Age through 1951 covers the where and why of these Heroic souls first appointed by Baha’u’llah during the latter part of His Ministry, to whom he referred to as “the chosen ones”, the “detached souls” and the “pure in spirit”. The story of the sacrifice and daring of the four Hands appointed by Him is followed by the accounts of those special individuals referred to as the Hands by His son Abdu’l-Baha on their passing. During the Ministry of Shoghi Effendi, the Guardian also elevated a number of outstanding individuals to the rank of Hand of the Cause, posthumously. The story of these heroes and heroines of the Baha’i Faith who “diffused the divine fragrances” and “promoted learning” is told.
