Declaration of the Bab

On the evening of May 22, Baha'is throughout the world commemorated the Declaration of the Bab, which took place in the Persian city of Shiraz in 1844. The Bab announced there that His mission was to alert the people to the imminent advent of "Him Whom God shall make manifest," namely, Baha'u'llah, the Founder of the Baha'i Faith. The observance took place about two hours after sunset. To mark the Holy Day, Baha'is abstain from work on 23 May. (Photo: The Shrine of the Bab, Haifa, Israel.)
