The views expressed in our content reflect individual perspectives and do not represent the official views of the Baha'i Faith.

The essence of charity is for the servant to recount the blessings of his Lord, and to render thanks unto Him at all times and under all conditions.

The essence of faith is fewness of words and abundance of deeds; he whose words exceed his deeds, know verily his death is better than his life.

The essence of true safety is to observe silence, to look at the end of things and to renounce the world.

The beginning of magnanimity is when man expendeth his wealth on himself, on his family and on the poor among his brethren in his Faith.

The essence of wealth is love for Me; whoso loveth Me is the possessor of all things, and he that loveth Me not is indeed of the poor and needy.

This is that which the Finger of Glory and Splendour hath revealed.

Baha’u’llah (Tablets of Baha’u’llah, pp 155-157)

    עוד הערה לגבי הסרט "התיעודי | בהאים בחצר האחורית" של נעמה פירץ:הנה ההצהרה של הבמאית לגבי הסרט שאינו אלא מוקמנטרי :PRODUCER'S STATEMENT: From Mocumentary to Black Market DocumentaryI was surprised to see our film "Bahais in my Backyard" prtiaed and streamed on the internet after it was broadcast by SBS Australia, but it didn’t look like pure theft, but rather a compliment to the film's humour and lightness.The next step, several months later, turned to be much more serious. The film was dubbed and streamed by an Iranian website. The dubbing, I am told by friends who know Persian, is ...very professional. At first, I was honoured by the effort and investment of the Iranian website and only regretted that we were cheated of our royalties. But when one of my friends translated the four-minute introduction the site added to “explain” the film and showed me serious and hefty attacks on the Bahais using excerpts from our film on another Iranian website called Alef, I was much less amused. Taken out of context, everything can be used to serve anything. To use a film which was done with such a light touch, making fun of the serious investigation we set out to undertake, to prove anything about the Bahais, is more than ridiculous.What a pity the Iranians didn't quite get the point of the film, a mockumentary, in which we make fun of ourselves and our theories. Sense of humour, lightness, I thought, were universal values.Noemi Schory, Producerעם זאת יש לציין שכמה מהדברים שמוצגים בו הם אכן נכונים .הבהאים אכן חופרים באדמה.
