June 18, 2023 will mark 40 years since 10 Baha’i women were hanged in Shiraz. Their only ‘crime’ was their refusal to renounce their beliefs in a faith that promotes the principles of gender equality, unity, justice, and truthfulness. This collection highlights Baha’i Blog content relating to the ongoing persecution of Baha’is in Iran.
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.
In honor of the bicentenary of the birth of the Bab, two members of the Baha’i community of New Zealand collaborated to create a model of the House of the Bab in Shiraz, Iran.
Sadly, the Bab’s House was destroyed by order of the authorities in 1979, however, this wonderfully crafted and detailed model, which even includes lights, gives us a breathtaking look inside the home.
