Jamila Canady: A Woman of Remarkable Insight

In this, the fifth episode of the America’s Most Challenging Issue podcast, Dr. Sahar Sattarzadeh, a Baha’i-inspired educator, poet, and human rights activist, discusses her life and research in the context of the Baha’i teachings. Sahar draws parallels between her childhood, as a daughter of immigrant parents fleeing religious persecution in Iran, and her current justice-oriented work which investigates systems of oppression and examples of creative resilience amongst marginalized populations searching for justice:

O Son of Spirit ! The best beloved of all things in My sight is Justice; turn not away therefrom if thou desirest Me, and neglect it not that I may confide in thee. By its aid thou shalt see with thine own eyes and not through the eyes of others, and shalt know of thine own knowledge and not through the knowledge of thy neighbor. Ponder this in thy heart; how it behooveth thee to be. Verily justice is My gift to thee and the sign of My loving-kindness. Set it then before thine eyes. – Baha’u’llah, The Hidden Words, pp. 3-4.
