Please join us for a
Prayer vigil for the Baha’i leaders in prison tonight
Tomorrow morning Tehran, Iran time which is tonight Friday July 10, 09 Pacific time, the so called “trial” of the 7 Baha’i prisoners by the Islamic Republic Regime of Iran is supposed to take place.
As you know they have been accused by crimes that are punishable by execution! You can read more about their case and critical situation on web sites and links on this site.
These innocent souls have been thrown in the notorious Evin prison for over a year. Their will and their conviction to the principles of oneness of all humanity, and human rights for all remains strong as steel but their bodies are withering from loss of food, sunlight, being confined to a small hole where they can barely move, and being deprived from any medical care or access to legal council. Actually their Nobel laureate lawyer Shirin Ebadi was not allowed to contact them and she had to fled the country. Their subsequent lawyers were arrested in the recent government crackdown and most likely are thrown in Evin Prison also!!
Family members and friends of the Baha’i prisoners will be attending. Your presence will be a great comfort to all.
Please come and join us at one of the prayer vigil locations or the privacy of your chambers, for their protection from oppression, the injustice, the cruelty and inhumanity that has surrounded the beleaguered Baha’i community of Iran for many years.
Time 8:00 P.M. – midnight
For direction and more information please call 909-626-2569
O Lord! Render victorious Thy forbearing servants in Thy days by granting them a befitting victory, inasmuch as they have sought martyrdom in Thy path. Send down upon them that which will bring comfort to their minds, will rejoice their inner beings, will impart assurance to their hearts and tranquillity to their bodies and will enable their souls to ascend to the presence of God, the Most Exalted, and to attain the supreme Paradise and such retreats of glory as Thou hast destined for men of true knowledge and virtue. Verily, Thou knowest all things, while we are but Thy servants, Thy thralls, Thy bondsmen and Thy poor ones. No Lord but Thee do we invoke, O God our Lord, nor do we implore blessings or grace from anyone but Thee, O Thou Who art the God of mercy unto this world and the next. We are but the embodiments of poverty, of nothingness, of helplessness and of perdition, while Thy 199 whole Being betokeneth wealth, independence, glory, majesty and boundless grace.
Turn our recompense, O Lord, into that which well beseemeth Thee of the good of this world and of the next, and of the manifold bounties which extend from on high down to the earth below.
Verily, Thou art our Lord and the Lord of all things. Into Thy hands do we surrender ourselves, yearning for the things that pertain unto Thee.
