Tahirih’s influence and reputation is celebrated in music and poetry throughout the world. The appearance of a soul as pure as Tahirih’s would have been a rare event in any culture but in a country as despotic as Persia where women were deprived of education with little opportunity of self expression her appearance was almost a miracle.

While still a young woman she travelled on pilgrimage, with her sister Marziyah, to  Karbila. While there she  had a dream in which a youth, wearing a green turban, appeared to her and with upraised hands He recited certain verses. When she awoke from her strange vision Tahirih recorded one of the verses in her book. Later when she received a copy of the Bab’s commentary on the Surah of Joseph, she discovered this was the same verse that had appeared in her dream.

At that moment she declared her belief in the Bab as the Gate to the Promised Qai’m and she became known as “The Point of Divine Knowledge.“ She travelled throughout the region attracting  thousands of followers. She has become immortalized in the annals of history, because of her rare intellect, her extraordinary beauty and her eloquent poetry.
