The Declaration of the Bab

in Explore > Calendar

On a spring evening on May 22rd, 1844, Siyyid Ali-Muhammad announced that He was the bearer of a Divine Revelation whose aim was to prepare the world for “Him Whom God Shall Make Manifest,” a Messenger of God known as Baha’u’llah. Baha’is refer to Siyyid Ali-Muhammad by His title, the Bab, which is Arabic for “the Gate,” and that eventful evening is celebrated every year by Baha’is around the world.

Sacred Space: Impressions in Retrospect, 40 Years Since the Destruction of the House of The Bab

December 13, 2019, in Videos > Documentary, by

On the 40th anniversary of the destruction of the House of The Bab in Iran, three Australian Baha’is reflect on their pilgrimage to this sacred spot.

The House of the Bab was identified as a critical historical setting for the Baha’i Faith and was destroyed as part of a widespread campaign which has been orchestrated over many decades seeking to extinguish the life of the Baha’i community in Iran. Forty years on, three Baha’is reflect on the memories of their visits to one of the holiest sites of the Baha’i Faith.
