Want to transfer Bahaidevotionals.org

Hi All, I own Bahaidevotionals.org which i'm shutting down (I never update or maintain it). Instead of letting the domain expire and potentially being parked for a higher price by a domain broker, i'm just wondering if I can transfer it to someone that could make use of it or at least hold it for th...

Re: Tell the king that this territory will pass out of his h

Actually, i presumed that the Sultan stayed in power but lost control of Gallipoli. But what really happened was... Sultan Abd-ul-Aziz was deposed on May 30, 1876 and a fortnight later he was found dead in the palace where he had been confined, and trustworthy medical evidence attributed his death t...

Tell the king that this territory will pass out of his hands

Hi there, Reading through God Passes By, i've come across the following on page 181... "Several of the companions who had been brought from Constantinople were awaiting them in Gallipoli. On his arrival Bahá’u’lláh made the following pronouncement to Hasan Effendi, who, his duty discharged, was...

One of my best friends is getting married in 2 months, and I've been asked to give a speech. I was hoping to end with a quote on love, specifically from the writings. I remember at my sister'...

Re: Testing browser support for embedding PDFs. Calling iPad

Okay, tested with google android. No good. The browser can't see embedded pdfs. It cant see flash either! It can see the outline of the object tag though. However, i am able to view pdfs via the pdf to go app, which requires the pdf to be downloaded first. I think android also has a native pdf viewe...

Re: UHJ Letter in regards to non believers at 19 day feasts

Hey Brett,

i forwarded you the email. You're pretty much spot on. We're not to invite them, but should they appear, we are to basically water down our administrative portion, not elimiate it entirely (or send them out of the room).

UHJ Letter in regards to non believers at 19 day feasts

Hey All, Maybe i was dreaming or imagining things, but i remember sometime last year (i think), there was a communication from the UHJ, mentioning a change in the events that occur should a non believer attend the 19 day feast. Rather than them leave the feast during the administrative portion, the ...

Friendship with the "ungodly"

Hey Guys, Throughout the writings, there are many quotes on befriending all, including your enemies. But there are also quotes on steering clear of the ungodly. i.e. O Son of Dust! Beware! Walk not with the ungodly and seek not fellowship with him, for such companionship turneth the radiance of the ...

Not really the correct place to ask, but i was hoping someone here might have an answer for me anyway... Moses freed the slaves, but in the old testament, he allows slavery of non-israelis?

Ah, the age old women and equality question! I think too many people compare serving as a UHJ member to being in politics. Serving on the UHJ is a selfless service. Selfless, meaning there is nothing to benefit or gain. Women themselves aren't denied anything. Men on the other hand have a chance of ...
