Author of the Bayan

Our study group read a selection from the Bayan which seems to imply Baha'u'llah wrote that Book through the Bab: "And know thou of a certainty that every letter revealed in the Bayan is solely intended to evoke submission unto Him Whom God shall make manifest, for it is He Who hath revealed th...

Re: Returning to Faith

Dear Jennifer: Welcome back, and welcome home. Your story is quite moving, but unfortunately not a gasping surprise. Jonah and iranpour left wonderful responses.

Qur'an and women's rights

We have heard that women were granted certain rights in the Qur'an, including the right to inherit and own property, and the right to choose their husband. The rights of inheritance and ownership have been found, but not the choosing of a husband. Any one know where this is? Searched in Ocean under ...

Equality of Men and Women in the Bab's Writings

Yes, third post. These issues have been percolating. Equality of men and women: This, of course, is a basic tenet of the Faith. The Bayán, being the Mother Book, would logically include that concept. Does it? If so, where might it be found? Also, where does the Báb say for women to remove the veil? ...

One who passed on so young is daughter Sadhijiyyih, who passed at 18 months old, about the time of departure from Constantinople. Are names for the other three, plus birth and death dates, and...

Need obscure historical details

Dear Friends; Sources say Tahirih was martyred while Baha'u'llah was in the Siyyah-Chal. Does anyone have something more specific, like in the first week after the attempt on the Shah, or two months later? Here's another one. In "Abdu'l-Baha in London," p. 115, the Master states about 70 d...
