With aching hearts, Baha’is of the world focus on the events unfolding in Iran, the birthplace of their religion

A message from the Baha’i International Community in the words of Baha’u’llah, the founder of the Baha’i Faith:

“We entreat God to deliver the light of equity and the sun of justice from the thick clouds of waywardness, and cause them to shine forth upon men. No light can compare with the light of justice. The establishment of order in the world and the tranquility of the nations depend upon it.” – Baha’u’llah
