    So many people, Baha’is and members of the world’s great Faiths across the world await this verdict. This verdict could be a great moment, in which Iran shows compassion and inspires the world with its humanity and desire for fairness, before the world. As a blessed soul said here, many months ago; there is still time to do the right thing.

    “Say, the power of God is in the hearts of those who believe in the unity of God and bear witness that no God is there but Him, while the hearts of them that associate partners with God are impotent, devoid of life on this earth, for assuredly they are dead.”
