Before 2015, the calendar was locked with the Gregorian calendar, so that the first day of the year was always on March 21.New rules took effect on March 20, 2015, which uncoupled the two calendars.
I am really wanting to know what the writings say about the process of "getting to know" someone. Zhang, I'm not sure why you would assume he's trying to get sex though.. "My question is, is there something in Baha'i faith that says no commitment should be made until marriage?The one I had discovered in the Nuri'd-Din's collection is indeed addressed to Mirza `Abdu'l-Hamid.Research Dept notes to their knowledge only these two Tablets of Baha'u'llah discuss the the revelation of the Book of Certitude.For more on Baha'u'llah's Book of Certitude see Christopher Buck's The Kitab-i Iqan: An Introduction to Baha'u'llah's Book of Certitude Occasional Papers in Shaykhi, Babi and Baha'i Studies, Vol. He wants to save any form of commitment until marriage. Oh and I would appreciate it if you didn't date anyone else because that's not cool." Wow, is he serious? It sounds like he just wants to hit up some other people, and in the meantime, he just wants you to sit around and wait for him to get back from his little escapades.Through the kindness of the Research Department of the World Center, I received a facsimile of the original letter which I will print in the forthcoming volume, In the Land of Refuge: Two Narratives of Mirza Habib Afnan (Oneworld Press).
The original of this letter clearly indicates its date, 5 Rajab.
Why is that so and are there other calendars that do a better job?
As a result of H-Bahai discussions of my paper "Conversion of the Great Uncle of the Bab" the issue came up regarding a letter of the Khal-i Akbar, dated 5 Rajab 1277 A. For the text of this letter I was relying on the version printed in the Khanidan-i Afnan.
Therefore we can now be certain that the Kitab-i Iqan was revealed prior to mid January 1861.
In my letter to the World Centre I had asked of both "1280" and "18 years" business mentioned in the Iqan.
He also tells me he prefers if I don't see anyone else because he'll be jealous. Look, I don't know your ex-boyfriend or anything, but here is how this sounds: "Hey, I don't think we should date anymore, until I really get to know your.... And even if there was, I would suggest you ignore it. There is no way I am going to wait around for him but I am trying to decide if to remain friends at all.
