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.
A study circle is a small group that meets to study the course materials from the Ruhi Institute. This collection contains resources related to study circles, as well as resources to assist anyone with deepening their understanding of the Baha’i Writings.
Nader Saiedi – Text and Context in the Baha’i Heroic Age
Thanks to the Local Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of Santa Monica, California we’re happy to share with everyone a series of 12 talks given by Professor Nader Saiedi called “Text and Context in the Baha’i Heroic Age” held in 2014.
Professor Nader Saiedi is well known for his books Logos and Civilization and Gate of the Heart. Born in Tehran, Iran. He holds a master’s degree in economics from Pahlavi University in Shiraz and a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Wisconsin. For over 25 years he was a professor of sociology at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. In 2013, he became the Taslimi Foundation Professor of Baha’i Studies in the department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures at UCLA. (Read more about Nader Saiedi here.)
Naysan is passionate about using the arts and media to explore the teachings of the Baha’i Faith. Back in 2011, Naysan started up the Baha’i Blog project, channeling his experiences in both media and technology companies to help create a hub for Baha’i-inspired content online.
I, Bahereh Khodadoost, a Baha’i for many years, absolutely loved listenning to these series of Talks given by Mr. Nader Saeidi; not only enlightening and informative, also it reassured me that I am not alone in my way of thinking all these years, 69 years! So thank you, thank you, & thank you♥♡ I hope the Baha’i Community to hear this call, & to open up, & I say this with absolute sincerity from the bottom of my heart.
