This wonderful talk by Dr. Nader Saiedi, titled “Fire and Light in the Bab’s Tablet Proclaiming to be the Qa’im”, has been graciously shared with us by the Local Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of Santa Monica, California.
Dr. Nader Saiedi, a scholar of the Writings of the Bab, shares some context about a historically important and complex Tablet of the Bab’s that has yet to be translated into English.
