Declaration of the Báb
___________________
A Bahá'í Holy Day commemorating the Declaration of the Báb to Mullá Ḥusayn that the Báb was the Promised One. This event occurred at two hours and eleven minutes after sunset on the evening of 22 May 1844 in the House of the Báb in S̲h̲íráz. It is considered to mark the opening of the Bahá'í Dispensation and the beginning of the Bahá'í Era.
‘This night', said the Báb to Mullá Ḥusayn, ‘this very hour will, in the days to come, be celebrated as one of the greatest and most significant of all festivals.'15 The Declaration of the Báb is observed about two hours after sunset on 22 May and work is prohibited on this Holy Day (23 May).
