Protect the innocent Baha’is of Iran

Innocent Bahai friends in Iran are to be tried for their FaithTroubling news are spreading all over the internet. The Iranian government is set to try seven outstanding servants of the persecuted yet innocent Baha’i community, a gentle Faith dedicated to uniting the hearts of all people. The claim is utterly ridiculous — that the members of the national coordinating committee of the Baha’is of Iran are spies for Israel. The truth about the plight of Baha’is of Iran is open for all to see! The jailed Iranian Baha’is should be set free! I pray to God to protect these innocent souls:

I beseech Thee, O Thou Who art the Lord of all names, to guard Thy loved ones against Thine enemies, and to strengthen them in their love for Thee and in fulfilling Thy pleasure. Do Thou protect them, that their footsteps may slip not, that their hearts may not be shut out as by a veil from Thee, and that their eyes may be restrained from beholding anything that is not of Thee. Cause them to be so enraptured by the sweetness of Thy divine melodies that they will rid themselves of all attachment to any one except Thee, and will turn wholly towards Thee, and extol Thee under all conditions, saying: “Praised be Thou, O Lord our God, inasmuch as Thou hast enabled us to recognize Thy most exalted and all-glorious Self. We will, by Thy mercy, cleave to Thee, and will detach ourselves from any one but Thee. We have realized that Thou art the Beloved of the worlds and the Creator of earth and heaven!”

Glorified be God, the Lord of all creation!
(Baha’u’llah, Prayers and Meditations by Baha’u’llah, p. 96)

I plead for your urgent support in defending the persecuted Baha’is of Iran.
