The Celebration in the Haziratu’l-Quds

On the occasion of the birth of His Holiness the last Prophet (PBUH), a glorious ceremony was held on Thursday and Friday in Tehran and other cities. The military governorate of Tehran organized a banquet in the Haziratu’l-Quds [the centre of the Baha’is], which is the current location of the governorate, in which a large number of Tehran residents, especially scholars and clerics, took part.

This was the first time that a joyous and happy gathering had been held for the Muslims in the Haziratu’l-Quds. Meanwhile, most facades of the buildings of the government institutions, especially those related to the army, were decorated with mirrors and lights.
