Top 20 Baha’i Blog Instagram Posts

August 17, 2017, in Images > Community, by

Baha’i Blog’s Instagram account includes short quotations from the Writings put to images as well other really breath-taking images out there on the Internet, all curated or created by Collis. Here are our top most liked photos on Instagram. If you’re not following us already, please do!

Our inspiring Baha’i quotation images are made using a simple mobile design app called Over for iOS. If you’re interested to try your hand, download the app and you can either start with their ready-made templates, or from scratch and graph free photos from the Unsplash service (which integrates directly into Over). If you need an app for deeper photo editing, we also use Enlight, a sort of Photoshop-on-your-phone.

“Táhirih accepted the teachings of the Báb in her twenties, to the consternation of her father and her husband, and became one his most fearless and brilliant advocates. She was a poet, renowned for her learning and her skill in argument. At a conference near the village of Badasht, in 1848, she shocked her fellow believers by appearing before the all-male gathering without a veil. One of them felt so scandalized that he slit his own throat. By imposing this new image of equality on the Bábís, Táhirih forced them to make a critical break with the past. On her way back to Tehran she was arrested, sent to the capital, and brought before the king, Násiri’d-Din Sháh. If she would only renounce the Báb and return to Islam, His Imperial Majesty told her, he would make her his bride. She turned him down with a poem: Kingdom, wealth, and power are for thee, Beggary, exile, and loss are for me. If the former is good, it’s thine. If the latter is hard, it’s mine. They imprisoned her for four years. The day before they killed her, the Sháh summoned her again. Again she rebuffed him. They strangled her with a scarf and threw her body down a well. The Times of London reported her death on October 13, 1852. She was thirty-six years old. Táhirih remained defiant until the end. “You can kill me as soon as you like,” she said, as she faced her murderers, “but you cannot stop the emancipation of women.” — from 239days.com #bahai #internationalwomensday #beboldforchange
