The spiritual nature of Bahá'í marriage ceremony !?

Video : The spiritual Bahá'í marriage

It started with a traditional Baha'i marriage ceremony held at Balmain Rotunda. The guests got to bask in the gorgeous Sydney sun, along with many on-lookers who were equally captivated by the ceremony. A grand Reception at the Grand Royale followed...and of course with lots of dancing! 

Summary of Bahá’i Requirements Concerning Marriages with Followers of other Religions.

Bahá’is believe in "Unity of Religions" ! and Baha'ism is not a "Cult" !? Now read this.

In your letter of 1 July 1979 you requested the Universal House of Justice to provide you with a statement on the Bahá’i requirements concerning marriages with followers of other Faiths. The House of Justice has instructed us to send you the following summary.

1.    When a Bahá’i is marrying a non-Bahá’i, and the non-Baha’i wishes to have the ceremony of his (or her) own religion the Bahá’i party may take part in it under the following conditions:
1.1 That all concerned, including the officiating priest, know that he is a Bahá’i.
1.2 That he does not, by having the ceremony, renounce his faith.
1.3 That he does not undertake any vow to act contrary to Bahá’i principles (such as to bring up the children in another Faith)
1.4 That the ceremony be held on the same day as the Bahá’i ceremony, either before or after it.

2. If a civil ceremony is required by law in addition to the two religious ceremonies, all three ceremonies must be held on the same day.
3. If a Bahá’i has the marriage ceremony of another religion and, in so doing, violates any of the above requirements, he is liable to loss of his voting rights.
4. If voting rights are removed and the offender requests reinstatement, they may be restored, if the Assembly is satisfied that the believer is repentant, subject to the following conditions: 4.1 If the Bahá’i dissimulated his faith or undertook a vow contrary to Bahá’i principles in order to have the ceremony of another religion and if the holding of the ceremony was dependent upon such an act, he must dissolve the marriage. His voting rights may then be restored, but, if he still wishes to be married to the same woman, he can do so only if they marry in accordance with the requirements of Bahá’i Law.
4.2 If the Bahá’ dissimulated his faith or undertook a vow contrary to Bahá’i principles, and the holding of the marriage ceremony of the other faith was not dependent upon such an act, it is not necessary to dissolve the marriage, but the Bahá’i must do whatever is necessary to officially inform the appropriate authorities that he was a Bahá’i at the time of his marriage, and to withdraw the vow. Following the taking of these steps the Bahá’is voting rights may be restored on condition that a Bahá’i marriage ceremony be held immediately after their restoration.
4.3 If the Bahá’i neither dissimulated his faith nor undertook any vow contrary to Bahá’i principles, and his only offence was failure to have the Bahá’i ceremony on the same day as the ceremony of the other religion (or the civil ceremony), his voting rights may be restored on condition that a Bahá’i marriage ceremony be held immediately after their restoration.

5. The holding of a Bahá’i marriage ceremony, which would permit the restoration of voting rights is subject to the same requirements as any other Bahá’i marriage, and if a Bahá’i has had a civil ceremony of another religion without a Bahá’i ceremony and without obtaining consent of parents, the Assembly, before granting the Bahá’i ceremony, must be satisfied that the consent of the parents is freely given.
6. If a Bahá’i has a civil marriage or the marriage of another religion, and the Assembly is satisfied that this was because he (or she) was genuinely ignorant of Bahá’i Law ‘on the subject, the Assembly may excuse the fault. In such a case the person is recognized as married in the same way as if he had been married before accepting the Faith. It is thus neither necessary nor possible for him to have a Baha’i ceremony.”
(From letter written on behalf of the Universal House of Justice to the National Spiritual Assembly of Greece July15, 1980).
 

Baha'u'llah's sister Khānum Buzurg describes the terrorist activities of earlier Baha'is

Baha'i Terrorists according to Baha'u'llah's own sister.

“They gathered a group of hooligans from different provinces of Iran and from the same places fugitives who had never believed in any religion and had no faith in any prophet and had no work but manslaughter and had no occupation but stealing peoples’ property. Even though they claimed they were following [the customs] of Ḥusayn (the grandson of the Prophet Muḥammad who was ruthlessly murdered by Shimr on the orders of Yazīd) they summoned a group of Shimr-like people around themselves. The breath of any soul who uttered anything but what they were satisfied with was suffocated. They beat any head which made the slightest sound other than accepting their guardianship. They cut every throat which showed other than humbleness towards them. They pierced every heart which had love towards other than them. The first group whose names we previously mentioned fled to Karbala, Najaf and elsewhere fearing those bloodthirsty headsmen. They beheaded Sayyid Ismā`īl Iṣfahānī, they ripped Mīrzā Aḥmad Kāshī’s guts, they killed Āghā Abul-Qāsim Kāshi and threw his body in the Tigris river, they finished Sayyid Aḥmad with a gun, they scattered Mīrzā Ridhā’s brain with rocks, they cut Mīrzā `Alī’s body from the sides and pushed him unto the path of demise. Other than these, they killed others in the darkness of night and threw their bodies in the Tigris river; yet others were killed in the Bazaar in daylight and cut to pieces with daggers and machetes . . .,” `Izziyyih Khānum (Khānum Buzurg), Tanbīh al-nā’imīn, pp. 11–12.

Shameem Taheri promotes Baha'u'llah and Baha'i faith through Music and Dance.

Baha'u'llah and Baha'i Faith in Shameem Taheri's new Music Album
At the age of 15, considered the age of maturity in the Baha’i faith, she affirmed her mother’s faith, in which she had been raised, as her own. More than just an influence on her music, the Baha’i faith is a prominent character in this new album. The title is a reference to writing by Bahá’u’lláh ....

‘Abdu’l-Bahá - The Perfect Exemplar : He used to consume castor oil for his constipations.

In his writings Baha'u'llah instructed all the Baha'is to turn to his eldest son, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. So all the Baha'is suffering from Constipation should turn to ‘Abdu’l-Bahá for the solution.

Check the Red Part - For some reasons Ahang Rabbani left it untranslated...!
The untranslated section (marked above) reads as follows :

حضرت عبدالبهاء گاهی اوقات محض تخلیه ی از فضول و اعتدال مزاج، فقط روغن کرچک را اختیار می فرمودند با پرهیز.

Translation :

"His highness ‘Abdu’l-Bahá for the defection of feces and the health of his bowels would only use castor oil along with abstinence"

This may be the reason for his obesity. He also used to smoke Cigarettes gifted to him by Western Pilgrims.

‘Abdu’l-Bahá and his fat belly.

Caught Red Handed: How Ahang Rabbani Exposed the Censoring and Information Control Method in Baha’i Publications

Dr. Ahang Rabbani in Iran
UPDATE: Ahang Rabbani had made a number of distortions in the translation of the current work to hide nasty things that Abdu'l-Baha had said. This has been documented here.

Dr. Ahang Rabbani, the celebrated and prominent Baha’i scholar and translator, passed away in 2013 leaving behind a wealth of Baha’i related works and translations. These works are mostly the memoirs of trusted Baha’i eyewitnesses who have narrated their memories and their observations during their stays with Baha’u’llah and Abdu’l-Baha.
