Tahirih’s was the daughter of a wealthy cleric from Qazvin in northern Persia. Her extraordinary beauty and eloquence attracted thousands of followers from all over the Ottoman Empire, and her poetry ranks among the finest in Persian literature.

She was well versed in the Quran and Islamic theology, and at an early age she became interested in the writings of Shaykh Ahmad who foretold of the imminent return of the Hidden Imam. Tahirih went on pilgrimage to the Holy shrines in Karbila and Baghdad where she studied the oral traditions of Muhammad and the Twelve Imams, known as the Hadith.

She knew the Bab was the Promised Qaim, when a prayer he revealed had previously appeared to her in a dream. Tahirih publicly proclaimed her belief in the advent of a new dispensation, heralded by the Bab, with an enthusiasm and fervor rarely seen in a woman.

Her controversial views challenged the authority of the religious establishment, so she was placed under house arrest while the authorities awaited instructions from Constantinople, to determine her fate. Stories abounded of her struggle to establish women’s equality in a male dominated society, and her popularity grew even more until her martyrdom in 1852.  

Abdu’l Baha characterizes Tahirih as “A brand afire with the love of God” and raised her station to the same level as the Virgin Mary and Fatimah.

This book Tahirih “A Poetic Vision” documents the heroine’s complete story and contains twelve full color illustrations, written and illustrated by Ivan Lloyd, Persian calligraphy by Saie Monjazeb and new translations of her poetry.

58 pages 12 full color illustrations. Published by Desert Rose Publishing 2001.

Mulla Husayn was a frail cleric from northern Persia, who set out from Khurasan, on pilgrimage to Karbila in search off the Promised Qaim whose coming had been foretold in the Holy Books of Shiah Islam.

On May 22nd 1844, this meek theologian became the first to acknowledge the Bab’s claim to be the Gate to the Hidden Imam at a moment which defines the birth of the Baha’i faith.

Mulla Husayn anticipated being chosen to accompany the Bab to Mecca, where in accordance with Islamic prophecy; He was to pronounce His mission to the pilgrims of the Hijaz. Instead the Bab instructed him to travel throughout Persia and proclaim to the seekers “Zahabuz Zahman” The Promised One has come.

He established the first teaching center in Mashhad where thousands flocked to learn more about the new faith. When Mulla Husayn received news of the Conference of Badasht he hoisted the Black Standard and set out with a group of his companions to join the other Babi’s. On their way they passed through a wooded area and the group was ambushed, so they took refuge in the shrine of Shaykh Tabarsi and built a fort to defend themselves.

For several months Mulla Husayn and 313 of his companions emblazoned with the love of God defended the shrine with death defying feats of courage against the constant onslaught of Nasiri’d-Din Shah’s army.

This book “Unfurling the Black Standard” tells the complete story of Mulla Husayn’ s struggle as the first believer, his meetings with the Bab, his teaching to the Letters of the Living and the heroic battle of Fort Tabarsi.

150 pages written and illustrated by Ivan Lloyd with 12 full color illustrations complete with Persian translation by Dr. Minu Sabet.  Published by Images International 2001.
