The Bab’s Door in Shiraz

“Enter therein in peace secure”

This is the door to the house in Shiraz where Siyyid Ali Muhammad (the Bab) declared, to Mulla Husayn, that He was the Gate to the Promised One of All Ages, “This night,” the Bab declared “this very hour will, in days to come, be celebrated as one of the greatest and most significant of all festivals.”                 The Dawn-Breakers



This is the most popular painting from The Pilgrimage Series; The artist believes every Baha’i household should display this image in their home. Not only can one imagine what the Bab experienced as He regularly passed through the threshold of this door, it also symbolizes the very first moment of the birth of the Baha’i dispensation, and it is possible to imagine how, one by one, the Letters of the Living and later, in small numbers, during the predawn hours of the night, hundreds of the Bab’s followers were secretly ushered into His presence through this door.
