Madame Ruhiyyih Rabbani, 90, wife of a late Bahai leader and a senior figure in the faith, died Wednesday in the Israeli city of Haifa after a long illness. Rabbani married then-world head of the Bahai faith, Shoghi Effendi Rabbani, in 1937. Following her husband's death in 1957, she helped establish the nine-member Universal House of Justice that Rabbani had said should replace him.
