- Abdu’l-Baha was the eldest son of Baha’u’llah. When Abdu’l-Baha passed away on 28 November 1921, He was eulogized as One who led humanity to the “Way of Truth,” as a “pillar of peace” and the embodiment of “glory and greatness.”
Laura Mostmand dedicates this video the the Baha’is in Iran, commemorating the seventh anniversary of the imprisonment of seven Baha’i leaders in Iran (also known collectively as ‘the Yaran’) who formed the entire membership of the now-disbanded ad hoc group tending to the spiritual and social needs of the Iranian Baha’i community (in the absence of formally elected Baha’i leadership which was banned in 1983).
Baha’is around the world have launched a seven day campaign (14-21 May, 2015) based on the theme “Seven Days in Remembrance of Seven Years for the Seven Baha’i Leaders”, and each of these seven days will focus on a different member of the seven arrested Baha’i leaders.
The seven arrested Baha’is and the corresponding days they will be honored are as follows:
May 14: Mahvash Sabet (Bio)
