Baha’is of Los Alamos is joining Baha’is throughout the world in celebrating two of the nine annual Holy Days.
Saturday, Baha’is will gather to celebrate the Declaration of the Bab, the prophet-martyr of the Baha’i faith and the herald of the coming of Baha’u’llah.
The Bab, which means Gate, declared his mission on May 22, 1844, in the city of Shiraz, Persia or modern day Iran.
The years immediately following his declaration saw a significant number of the people of Persia, from all walks of life, from humble farmers to highly educated religious leaders and members of the Persian ruling class, join the new religion.
A wave of persecution ensued, conducted by the Persian government at the instigation of the Shi’ih Muslim clergy, in which tens of thousands of the adherents of the new religion, including, eventually, the Bab himself, were martyred.
On May 29, the Bahá’ís of Los Alamos will commemorate the Ascension of Bahá’u’lláh, the prophet-founder of the Bahá’í faith.
On this date in 1892, Bahá’u’lláh died as an exile in the Holy Land, to which he had been banished by officials of the Ottoman Empire because of his teachings.
