On the Unbelievers and the Faithless: Their minds set on four things

The unbelievers and the faithless have set their minds on four things: first, the shedding of blood; second, the burning of books; third, the shunning of the followers of other religions; fourth, the extermination of other communities and groups.        (Baha'u'llah, Tablets of Baha'u'llah, p. 91)
This quote is so powerful. How much of the disorder in the world can be traced to these four things. Naw-Ruz is a day to do humanitarian acts. I can think of one enormous humanitarian act the Iranian authorities could do.  -gw
As we gather together at the above table of haft seen to usher in the Baha’i New Year; Naw-Ruz, we like to include the seven Sh (YARAN of IRAN) keeping them in our prayers. We think of them as our haft sheen or haft shir (seven lions of the divine courage and love).
