Photograph/Sketch of Syed Ali Muhammad Bab

Postby Ahsan_al_Hadees » Sat May 24, 2008 2:27 am

Hi,

I got a sketch from internet which is entirely new for me. It is given on one bahai site dedicated to Tahirih.

I completely understand the respect which Bahais give to the photographs of Syed Ali Muhammad Bab and Bahaullah.

To who should I send this sketch to confirm if thats really the original sketch? Jonah???

Only a Bahai who had been to Bahai pilgrimage can confirm about the authenticity of this sketch.

Please let me know about that sketch of Bab which Miller gave in his anti-Bahai writing. Is that authentic?

Regards,
Ahsan

Dear brett,

Have you seen the sketch of Syed Ali Muhammad Bab? I got the one but I need to confirm.

I am not attaching that sketch here.

Regards,
Ahsan

I have seen such a portrait, but I think a confirmation could only really be given by the Baha'i World Centre.

By the way, there is also this letter (I just give it for your reference or others here)

best wishes,

Dear Brett,

May I have the email address of the Bahai World Center. Is that also called Universal House of Justice?

Regards,
Ahsan

I have been to Haifa more than once and can probably confirm whether or not the sketch you're talking about is authentic, if you'd be willing to send it to me.
