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.
We’re back with our second episode of “Deck of Questions” with the fantastic Della and Polly, two Baha’is living in country Victoria in Australia’s south. Della grew up in a Baha’i family, while Polly became a Baha’i more recently. Together Della and Polly explore questions about being a Baha’i, becoming a Baha’i, as well as the meaning of life, and so much more!
We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we have!
Baha’is believe everyone has the sacred responsibility to investigate truth for themselves. Whether growing up in a Baha’i family (as Della did) or learning about the Baha’i Faith later in life (as Polly did), declaring one’s faith in Baha’u’llah is a decision made freely, consciously and independently.
