Wrong Religion? Not A Citizen!

prayerStill working on the UN Posts…


The Bahá’ís of Egypt are being confronted with an impossible situation. There’s a group trying to organize a world-circling prayer-ring to, hopefully, aid them in their test of Faith:

From: Horaciones
“All Egyptian citizens must declare their religious belief in all official National documents which include their ID cards and birth certificates. The documents only allow them to choose one of three religions recognized by the Egyptian government: Islam, Christianity, and Judaism. Baha’is have the ridiculous choice of either renouncing their Faith by registering as a follower of another religion, or renouncing all their civil rights, such as education, work, health.

“By October 20th, the Egyptian Supreme Court was to decide whether to allow Baha’is to obtain ID cards and leaving the religious affiliation space blank. The Court decided to postpone the decision to November 3rd.

“To support the process, we are organizing another World Wide Prayer Chain for November 2nd, as we had done previously for October 20th. For the entire 24 hour duration of the day, people around the world will be praying in 15 minute intervals that, God-willing, the decision towards the recognition of the Baha’i Faith in Egypt will be taken.

“On the last occasion, over 100 people participated from every part of the globe, from Europe to the Americas, from Bahji to the Temple of Sydney, and even Iran! We are confident the same will happen again….”

Spiritual Quote:

“Reveal then Thyself, O Lord, by Thy merciful utterance and the mystery of Thy divine being, that the holy ecstasy of prayer may fill our souls – a prayer that shall rise above words and letters and transcend the murmur of syllables and sounds—that all things may be merged into nothingness before the revelation of Thy splendor.”
‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Bahá’í Prayers, p. 70

  1. Life is a warfare in which we must give proofs if we would advance,Power does not surrender of itself,it must be seized.
    Count me in on you’re vote,and in you’re prayers for the Bahai’s Faith.!

  2. As Roma we have fought the same type of temporal divisions, classified as non-citizens still to this day in many countries and states refuse us recognition as even people much less citizens, with rights! There are even places where our existence is illegal! Including Egypt.
