[Issue No.:] 32


The employees of the Payam Newspaper offer their condolences on the occasion of the martyrdom of the Master of the Pious, Ali ibn Abi Talib to all the Muslims, and we hope that, during these Nights of Qadr [nights of value/power][1], all will beg the Almighty God for the blessings of these nights, which belong to the best, the most esteemed, the most devoted and the most courageous of His servants, to rid the Muslim nation from the wickedness of the aliens and the irreligious, especially this perverse band, which, in the name of Baha’ism, have taken root in this country and have misled many gullible people, just as their drum-beat of infamy has reached the ears of the world, to uproot them and save the Muslims from their evil.
