- Baha’is believe in the power of prayer and you’ll find Baha’is and their friends, throughout the world, getting together to pray. This is often referred to as a ‘devotional gathering’ or ‘devotional meeting’, and they happen in diverse settings, whether in cities or villages.
In this talk, Dr. Vahid Rafati explores the Tablet of Medicine, a mighty work revealed by Baha’u’llah. Dr. Rafati explains that he is not a medical doctor, and instead, he discusses the context of this tablet, medicine in the Islamic Revelation, and the theological issues related to physical wellbeing.
Dr. Vahid Rafati received his B.A degree in Psychology from Tehran University. He subsequently completed his PhD in Islamic Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Dr. Rafati has been serving at the Research Department of the Baha’i World Centre in Haifa, Israel since 1980 and is the author of numerous articles and books in both Persian and English.
