Baha’is celebrating Christmas:
Every year during Christmas we witness the congratulating messages on Baha’i channels. Some of these channels publish graphs and videos of illumination of the street leading to the location grave of Bab!
On the occasion of Christmas, we such explanation as “this street is decorated for celebration of Christians, Jews and Muslims. These lights are for Christmas feast and their beauty is complemented by the brilliance of the Carmel Bride that is located on the top.”
Christmas crowd the dome of Bab glorifies and text the attention of the participants away at the festive event. That night, in that great celebration a question key to mind that need to ask the Baha’is community about. Those who celebrating the Christmas ceremony in the street of the grave of Bab did not know that they were celebrating next to the someone who believed according to the Baha’is:
- The all churches should be destroyed!
- Mosques and churches must be destroyed
- Mecca, Medina and even Jerusalem, a holy place for Christians, Muslims and also Jews of the world, must be destroyed.
As the matter was issued great missionary Abu’l-Fadl Gulpaygani: “Does Mr. Brown wants that Bahá’u’lláh like the Bab, order all the books to be burned? Does Mr. Brown wants that Bahá’u’lláh, like the Bab, orders to destroy and demolish all the structures and churches and mosques and shrines and domes, and that Mecca and Jerusalem, and whatever the church, whatever the mosque and whatever Turbat, is to be ruined by the Babis?” (Kashf al-Ghita’an Hiyal ul-a’da p.367)
Also, it’s fantastic when you see the statement of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, the second leader of Baha’is who not only had not sent a message of happy Christmas to the Christians, but also underlined it as a superstition!
“Verily, the people who rejoice in the day of the feast and enjoyed the tree was decorated, following the custom of ancient times, are the people of superstitions.” (Tablets of Abdu’l-Baha p.296)
In this way, respect to the other’s custom is forbidden in the Baha’i Faith! And if you are a Christian, your culture is not valuable in the Baha’i community!
We ask the sapient in the world: “Isn’t this attitude a kind of bigotry in the Baha’i Faith?!”
