June 18, 2023 will mark 40 years since 10 Baha’i women were hanged in Shiraz. Their only ‘crime’ was their refusal to renounce their beliefs in a faith that promotes the principles of gender equality, unity, justice, and truthfulness. This collection highlights Baha’i Blog content relating to the ongoing persecution of Baha’is in Iran.
Baha’is see the young as the most precious treasure a community can possess. In them are the promise and guarantee of the future. Yet, in order for this promise to be realised, children need to receive spiritual nourishment, such as can be found in the children’s classes happening all around the world.
This is “MIGHTY – Story 5: The Knight”, the first of seven stories for children about Abdu’l-Baha from the book called Mighty.
The team at First Valley Books have graciously given Baha’i Blog permission to share the audiobook of Mighty, a children’s book about Abdu’l-Baha. Told through the eyes of a traveller, a doctor, an aristocrat, a writer, a young boy, a wealthy woman, and a little girl, Mighty consists of seven stories about Abdu’l-Baha, and His extraordinary life of love, justice, compassion and humility will inspire children to be of service to the world.
