The prayer you hear is from Abdu’l-Baha who Himself suffered imprisonment and exile by the hand of Iranian and Ottoman governments and ,the Moslem clergy from childhood until the end of His life. Abdu’l-Baha never returned to Iran. You can feel His anguish and His pain witnessing the inhumanity heaped upon the beleaguered Baha’is of Iran whom He loved and prayed for with all His heart.
This chant is an invitation to all of you who appreciate the value of freedom, know the importance of social justice and human rights and want to join me in supplication for the fair trial of Yaran and their release. The supporters of human rights and social justice in our area will be coming together in prayer on April 9th.
It has been over two years since the seven innocent former leaders of the Iranian Baha’i community were snatched from their hoes and held in Evin prison for their religious beliefs as Baha’is.
Every time someone’s human right is violated, every incident of injustice and inhumanity is felt by the body of all humanity because, whether we recognize the laws of nature or not, we are all one organic entity, cells of one body, waves of one sea, fruits of one tree.
Baha’is all over the world consider the issue of justice for all to be of great importance and of vital significance. The Baha’is also believe that sooner or later, humanity will make use of the lessons learned and we will ultimately learn to create harmony, to make and preserve peace, and chose the well being of all over the benefits of a segment of our human family.
