Video: 41 Conferences Around The World, Remembering Seven Martyrs of Tihran, 1850

A befitting reminder of the spiritual connection that exists between our persecuted Bahá'í brothers and sisters in Iran, and the work that believers in the rest of the world are doing to spread the Faith of Bahá'u'lláh.

On 5 March the Universal House of Justice wrote to the believers in the Cradle of the Faith:
"...your fellow believers throughout the world hold you especially in their prayers and, conscious of the spiritual forces released through your courage and sacrifice, are sparing no effort to ensure the advancement of the Cause of God and the promotion of the well-being and prosperity of humankind."
