|One of the most powerful Persian member of Supreme Baha'i Admin. Body, Dr. Payman Mohajer|
Dr. Mohajer then went on to share an explanation, by giving the example of a glass. He said that “while it is not inaccurate to say that the glass is transparent, it is evident that transparency is not the purpose of the glass. Transparency is one of the attributes of the glass, but its purpose is to hold liquid. Similarly, one of the attributes of our core activities is that they become portals for entry by troops or instruments for teaching - but that is not their purpose....
....Now if someone were to ask us whether the purpose of our inviting them to join study circles is to make them Bahá’ís, we can confidently say 'NO' and tell them that the purpose of our core activities is to assist in the transformation and betterment of society.”
This thought provoking question has many answers hidden inside it. One of the biggest mysteries of the Baha’i Faith – ‘not teaching the Faith in Israel’ can be solved very easily. Infact those who are well acquainted with the Iranian culture and their ways of thinking will realize that Mr. Payman Mohajer, a die hard supporter of Persian Baha’is in Baha’i Administration has very easily open the doors for teaching Ruhi Book in Israel.
His Message on behalf of Universal House of Justice is : “Let us start children moral classes in Israel of children aged between 6 to 11 years, Jr. Youth classes for age between 12 to 15 years, launch Intensive program of growth, contact the parents of the children and Jr. youth, invite them to study circles, try to make them good human beings, develop essential virtues such as the knowledge of God, trustworthiness, honesty and justice, build a strong moral framework that will assist children/Jr. Youths and their parents to achieve excellence in material, intellectual and spiritual aspects of life.”
If they insist that we want to become Baha’is, we say to them, “Teaching of the Baha’i faith is not permitted and hence we cannot accept any declaration from them. The purpose of our core activities is to assist in the transformation and betterment of society.”
Thanks dear Dr. Payman Mohajer you have helped us in solving this very embarrassing and great mystery of not teaching the faith to Israelis. We wait for your plan to start the four core activities in Israel for assisting in the transformation and betterment of the Israeli society."
