Baha'is celebrate Birth of the Bab

Baha’is celebrating the Birth of the Bab, the first of the two divine teachers central to the founding of the Baha'i Faith.

The Bab born on 20 October 1819 in Shiraz, Iran, then called Persia.

On 23 May 1844 The Bab was sent forth heralding and proclaiming the Kingdom of God, announcing the glad tidings of the coming of Baha'u'llah and withstanding the opposition of the whole Persian nation. (Abdu'l-Baha)

The appearance of the Bab resembles the dawn, for the dawn holds the promise of the sun. The dawn of the Bab promised the rising of the sun of truth that is to envelop the whole world.
ظهور حضرت باب مانند سپیده دم است زیرا سپیده دم نوید طلوع آفتاب را میدهد و حضرت باب نوید ظهور شمس حقیقت را دادند که سراسر دنیا را فرا میگیرد

The Bab, whose teachings attracted tens of thousands of followers, was executed in 1850 in the public square in Tabriz, Iran, on the order of the government.
