Celebrating the two hundredth Anniversaries of The Birth of Baha'u'llah and The Bab
#954075 added July 18, 2019 at 10:24pm

Who is The Bab?
Who is The Báb?

The flame that glistened bright on Sinai's crest,
The Gate1 to humanity's salvation,
The morning star shining from east to west,
And he lamp of divine revelation.
The forerunner of the Glory of God2,
He announced the Day of Resurrection:
Born Siyyid `Alí Muhammad: The Báb.


Poet's Note:

Footnotes
1  The Bab means Gate.
2  Baha'u'llah means the Glory of God.
