Stories of Mullá Husayn, Quddús, Táhirih, Vahíd, Hujjat, Zaynab and other early Bábis, vibrantly retold
All was quiet along the army lines as the sleepy soldiers settled in for a cold, dark winter’s night. Not so with the oppressed band of defenders behind the walls they had built; all were alert and ready for action, their eyes fixed upon the man in their midst who was the most valiant warrior among them. He was more awake than he had ever been in his life – every nerve of his body surging with energy, he was ready for action . . .
Here are the men and women who took up the Cause of the Báb, whose revelation in 1844 was to shake the very foundations of the land of its birth and reach every corner of the globe, initiating a new era in human civilization. It called forth a band of souls of matchless spiritual strength – the Heroes of the New Age. The stories of Mullá Husayn, Quddús, Táhirih, Vahíd, Hujjat, the maid Zaynab, the youth Anís, the seven Heroes of God at Tehran and the many other heroes of Tabarsí, Nayríz and Zanján are vibrantly retold here by Edward Diliberto.
