This is the story of the Báb, a young Siyyid who lived in Persia in the middle of nineteenth century. The beauty and purity of His life shines out amid the dark corruption of the times. And when He said that He was the Promised One who had come to renew religion and prepare the way for One even greater than Himself whose teachings would bring peace to the world, His message spread like wildfire across the land, awakening the hearts of people everywhere.
The appearance of the Báb was like the sun rising above the horizon, heralding the beginning of a new day in the history of mankind. It was a time of great excitement, heroic deeds, and a new outpouring of love into the world.
"I am the Lamp which the Finger of God hath lit..." The Báb.
