Martyrdom of the Bab starts at sundown**
Jul 8 all-day

Baha’i

Maryrdom of the Bab begins at sundown
Jul 8 @ 1:30 am – 2:30 am

Baha’i
Baha’is commemorate the date on which the Bab was executed in 1850 by a 750-man firing squad in Tabriz, Persia (Iran), Execution of the Bab in Tabriz and the exposure of His mangled body on the edge of the moat outside the city. Attempted execution of the Bab in Tabriz by a firing squad of 750 soldiers in front of 20,000 witnesses fails. The Bab vanishes in the smoke and is found later completing His final instructions to His amanuensis. The leader of the first firing squad refuses to try again. A second attempt is made using a new leader at noon, this time successfully. A gale force wind, earthquake, cholera and famine immediately follow. One third of the firing squad later die in an earthquake, the remainder are executed for mutiny. The bodies of the Bab and Anis are retrieved as directed by Baha’u’llah and ultimately interred at the Shrine of the Bab on the slope of Mt. Carmel, Israel
