“We cannot segregate the human heart from the environment outside us and say that once one of these is reformed everything will be improved. Man is organic with the world. His inner life moulds the environment and is itself also deeply affected by it. The one acts upon the other and every abiding change in the life of man is the result of these mutual reactions.” — from a letter on behalf of Shoghi Effendi
 
Why is climate change an issue the Baha’i Faith should address?
A: Baha’u’llah admonished His followers, “Be anxiously concerned with the needs of the age ye live in, and center your deliberations on its exigencies and requirements.” The Baha’i International Community in a 2008 thought piece noted, “The discourse on climate change has become a core part of informed debates about the future direction of the affairs of humankind. Authoritative assessments that global warming is ‘unequivocal’ and directly linked to human activity; that it constitutes the ‘widest-ranging market failure ever seen’; and that it represents the ‘defining human development challenge of the 21st century’ — have seized the attention of governments and peoples alike.”
It further pointed out that climate change is more than a technical or scientific challenge. At its core, it is a moral challenge raising questions of equity and justice. These difficult questions must be addressed if humanity is to devise an effective and lasting solution to the problem. The paper emphasized, “The principle of the oneness of humankind must become the ruling principle of international life.” Shoghi Effendi referred to this principle as “the pivot round which all the teachings of Bahá’u’lláh revolve.” It implies the need for profound changes at the level of the individual, the community, the nations and the institutions of the world.

Fighting Injustice: Update in Iranian Baha'is.

The 20-year prison sentences received by Iran’s seven Baha’i leaders have reportedly been changed. Lawyers representing the seven were informed orally on 15 September that the 20-year jail terms have now been reduced to ten years. The seven received prison sentences of 20 years each, after facing charges of propaganda activities against the Islamic order and the establishment of an illegal administration, among other allegations, all of which were categorically denied. The seven prisoners were moved from Evin Prison after receiving their sentence. They are now incarcerated in Gohardasht prison in Karaj. The move has imposed an added burden on their families, who now have to travel outside Tehran to visit the prisoners.

AYYAM - I - HA Celebration.

Ayyam-i-Ha a time of giving and hospitality





Baha'is celebrate the festival of Ayyam-i-Ha each year from sunset on Feb. 25 to sunset of March 1 as a preparation for the Fast, which begins March 2 and ends March 20. During Ayyam-i-Ha, members of the Faith perform acts of charity, give gifts to friends and family, and attend social gatherings.



Baha'u'llah has said of Ayyam-i-Ha: "It behoveth the people of Baha, throughout these days, to provide good cheer for themselves, their kindred and, beyond them, the poor and needy, and with joy and exultation to hail and glorify their Lord, to sing His praise and magnify His Name."
