Baha'u'llah's image[edit]

Please refrain from removing Baha'u'llah's image. This is not a Baha'i encyclopedia, and the action is considered vandalism. Regards, -- Jeff3000 (talk) 14:25, 29 March 2009 (UTC)


This an encyclopedia, and the appearance is not encyclopedia, especially from a non-academic source. Please read Wikipedia's guidelines on reliable sources. -- Jeff3000 (talk) 23:13, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Given name[edit]

I looked at the references you gave that Bahiyyih Khánum's given name was Bahá'íyyih Núrí and then don't span out:

  • H.M. Balyuzi, Baha'u'llah - The King of Glory, p. 17 states:
"The children of Bahá'u'lláh - 'Abdu'l-Bahá (the Most Great Branch), Bahá'íyyih Khanum (the Greatest Holy Leaf) and Mirza Mihdi (the Purest Branch) - were all born in this rented house; their mother was his first wife, Asiyih Khanum."
There is no mention that the name was the given name and in fact that he uses Abdu'l-Baha shows that he's using the most common name and not the given name.
  • Adib Taherzadeh, The Revelation of Baha'u'llah v 1, p. 14 states
"Another member of the Holy Family who accompanied Bahá'u'lláh on this journey was His six-year-old daughter Bahá'íyyih Khanum, titled Varaqiy-i-'Ulya (The Greatest Holy Leaf)."
Again, there is no comment about it being her given name.

On the other hand Momen, Moojan (2007). Baha'u'llah: A Short Biography. states

""Next in 1846 came a daughter, Fatimih Sultan Khanum, who in later years was known by the titles Bahiyyih Khanum and the Greatest Holy Leaf"
clearly stating that her given name was Fatimih.
