"The mind and spirit of man advance when he is tried by suffering. The more the ground is ploughed the better the seed will grow, the better the harvest will be. Just as the plough furrows the earth deeply, purifying it of weeds and thistles, so suffering and tribulation free man from the petty affairs of this worldly life until he arrives at a state of complete detachment. His attitude in this world will be that of divine happiness. Man is, so to speak, unripe: the heat of the fire of suffering will mature him. Look back to the times past and you will find that the greatest men have suffered most."

Abdu'l-Baha (Paris Talks, pp 178-179)

    Samandar, I wish I knew, if they say it is because of their soivar ( the Shiite avior) , why they don't mistreat the Ahmadiyya folowers? They believe that their thris soivar is ruling and they have the same names as the ones shiites belive. Bahais are persecuted specifically, I cannot understand myself why them, and every one knows they are such nice people..

      Prema,Thank you for the information, the least thing is to let othres know what is happening. One can clearly foretell that the constant persecution of Bahais in Iran will make Iranians embrace the faith more than ever. History is the evidence of when Iranians are under pressure and how they react. Well, it is not an over night reflection, but gradually it will happen. The followers of the faith will suffer, but the faith will flourish. Ah I see this so clearly Prema.
