Martyrdom of the Bab

  • On July 9th 1850, the Bab, the forerunner to Baha’u’llah, was executed in Tabriz, Persia by a firing squad of 750 men. The Bab, which means “the Gate” in Arabic, was a Messenger of God whose role was to herald the coming of the latest Manifestation of God: Baha’u’llah.

We Love Seeing You Wearing Baha’i Blog Apparel! (Part 1)

July 14, 2018, in Images > Community, by

Baha’i Blog’s mission is to create, celebrate and explore Baha’i-inspired content, artistic expression and use of media, and one of the ways we explore Baha’i-inspired content is through apparel. We are thrilled to have created several T-shirt designs (available at our online shop) and we’re even more excited to see them being worn and learn about the impact they’re having. We are also grateful to see these images because the funds raised from our shirt sales helps us continue to create more Baha’i-inspired content. Thank you for sharing these images with us and thank you for supporting Baha’i Blog!

This little one’s mother shared with us these words: “I love that the shirts allow and encourage me to talk to others about the quotations or prayers that they stem from. And the designs are beautiful as well.”

Hundreds of people support and contribute to Baha’i Blog in hidden ways – whether it’s by purchasing our shirts, or tirelessly and sacrificially helping out with tasks, both big and small!

We are excited about these words from the mother of this precious baby: “The onesie arrived in the mail as an anonymous gift!

We love the pensiveness of this photo being worn by Vahid, especially since this shirt speaks of the power of thought! It says: “A thought of hatred must be destroyed by a more powerful thought of love.”

Vahid tells us “it’s my favourite t-shirt at the moment, not only because it looks good and is comfortable, but also because of the great message. I’ve had people stop me and ask to take a photo of the t-shirt because of the great message!”
