The following guidance was dropped in the U S in 1998.
Bahà’is are not permitted to single out Muslims from the Middle-East and North Africa, especially Iranian Muslims, to teach them the Faith. Should such a person become spontaneously attracted to the Faith he or she may, with caution, be taught. Enrolment in the Faith is, however, a different issue which must be considered on a case by case basis:-
The instructions of the beloved Guardian regarding teaching orientals from the Middle East are to be upheld, even more so at this time because of the present situation in Iran. Iranian Muslims in particular should not be sought out in order to teach them the Faith.
(letter written on behalf of the Universal House of Justice to a National Spiritual Assembly, dated February 6, 1986)
There are certain principles governing association with persons from Middle Eastern Muslim countries. Bahá’is in the West are not to initiate any attempts to teach the Faith to Muslims from Middle Eastern countries. This includes Muslims from Iran, North Africa and Arab countries. Muslims from these countries who have become citizens of the United States or have acquired permanent resident status and who show a genuine interest in learning about the Faith may be taught the Faith but it is they who must take the initiative. If a Muslim should ask for information on the Faith, the information he seeks may be given according to the dictates of wisdom, but Baha’is should not exceed the request that has been made by attempting to convert the person, interest him further or invite him to Baha’i meetings. In short, Baha’is are not to make a project of teaching Muslims. Although there are certain restrictions about teaching Muslims from some countries and accepting them into the Faith, it is a different situation with Muslims from India or Pakistan as compared with those from Iran or the Near East.

“As the two Indian cavalry brigades fighting under British General Edmund Allenby helped liberate Haifa from the Turkish-German forces, the British authorities heaved a sigh of relief. In a cable, General Allenby wrote, “Have today taken Palestine. Notify the world that Abdu’l Baha is safe.”
The spiritual leader of Bahai religion, a faith that began to emerge in the Ottomon empire in the 19th century, lived in Haifa, in present-day Israel. Alarmed by the growing popularity of Abdu’l Baha and his humanitarian and religious activities, the Turkish commander-in-chief threatened to crucify Abdu’l Baha on Mount Carmel in Haifa and destroy all the shrines of the Bahai faith as soon as the Ottomans won the war.
When the news of the death threat spread amongst the British community in Egypt and elsewhere in Europe, Major Tudor-Pole, an intelligence officer with the British army in Palestine and a follower of Abdu’l Baha, persuaded the military authorities to rescue the leader.”

The Iranian holocaust of 1917-19
The Great Famine & Genocide in Iran
1917-1919, 2nd Edition
“At least 8-10 million Iranians out of a population of 18-20 million died of starvation and disease during the famine of 1917-1919. The Iranian holocaust was the biggest calamity of World War I and one of the worst genocides of the 20th century, yet it remained concealed for nearly a century. The 2003 edition of this book relied primarily on US diplomatic records and memoirs of British officers who served in Iran in World War I, but in this edition these documents have been supplemented with US military records, British official sources, memoirs, diaries of notable Iranians, and a wide array of Iranian newspaper reports. In addition, the demographic data has been expanded to include newly discovered US State Department documents on Iran’s pre-1914 population. This book also includes a new chapter with a detailed military and political history of Iran in World War I. A work of enduring value, Majd provides a comprehensive account of Iran’s greatest calamity.”
This article is the first in a series which has been compiled from the book “Kashful Heel” written by Abdul Husain Aayati. He lived amongst the Bahais for 20 years and served them through these years. He was popularly known as “Awareh” which means the one who wandered about in love (of Bahaullah). After these years, he saw the corruptions of the Bahais first hand, renounced the Bahai Faith and finally reverted back to Islam. Thereafter he wrote the book “Kashful Heel” to reveal the true face and hypocrisy of the Bahais. The life history of Awareh is full of interesting events and episodes which outline the true face of the Bahais as revealed by an insider.
Professor E. G. Browne wrote a book about the Bahais known as “Materials for the Study of Babi Religion.” On page 7 of this book, he writes, “Bahaullah migrated from Baghdad to Sulaymania Kurdistan with his servant Abul Qasim in the year 1271 AH. His servant died on the way. He said that I have heard from Abbas Afandi that Abul Qasim was Hamdani and he went from Sulaymania to Hamdan as per the wish of Bahaullah. After having sold all his property in Hamdan, he was returning to Sulaymania and since Bahaullah knew that Abul Qasim had cash with him, he killed him”.
He said at another instance that the news of the murder of Abul Qasim was published in the newspaper. It was written in the paper that “Abul Qasim Hamdani is killed near Sulaymani and his head is cut off and his belongings have been taken away but his killer is not known.”
Abbas Afandi said at another place that, “We understood from the killing of Abul Qasim that Bahaullah was in Kurdistan.”
One of the Bahais said: “We can derive from all these saying of Abbas Afandi that the killer of Abul Qasim is the same person who betrayed Abul Qasim and convinced him that he should encash his property and should go to Sulaymanai but as soon as he reached there, he took him to desert of Sulaymania and put him to death and usurped his belongings and his cash.”
At another place he said, “Before Abul Qasim could meet Bahaullah, he was killed and his cash was stolen and his murder was portrayed as a normal death to Professor Browne who made many changes in the history under the influence of Bahais. Since many such huge murders were committed by Bahaullah and his sons, most of the Bahais have asserted that the killer of Abul Qasim is no one other than Bahaullah and it is not surprising at all!
Professor Browne has recorded another incident at page 10 of his book as follows, “Aqa Sayyed Ismael Zawareha left Baghdad and went to Kazmain in the year 1284 AH and committed suicide.”

How the Baha’is benefitted from the 1917-19 British engineered holocaust in Iran
What follows is the account of an eminent Persian Bahá’í, Mírzá Áqá Khán Qá’im-Maqámí—the great-grandson of Mírzá Abuʼl-Qásim Qáʼim-Maqám Faráhání, the prime minister under Muhammad Shah and the man lauded by Bahá’u’lláh Himself as “the Prince of the City of Statesmanship and Literary Accomplishment” (Tablets of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 65)—who used his immense wealth to keep all the Bahá’ís of Persia well-fed as a devastating famine ravaged the country. The anecdote is derived from a larger biographical sketch of Mírzá Áqá Khán Qá’im-Maqámí by the late Hasan Noushabadi, who wrote up his remembrances and published them as an article entitled Rajul-i-Rashíd (“The Man of Courage”) in the Persian-language Áhang-i-Badíʻ (“New Melody”) magazine, which I have been working to translate for some time.
I hope you enjoy this inspiring story.
It was towards the beginning of autumn in 1916 when I [Hasan Noushabadi] myself left Arák for Ṭihrán. Qá’im-Maqámí said to me:
“The coming winter will bring dire scarcity and famine. The Baháʼís must be made aware of this fact, and urged to prepare, to the greatest extent possible, wintertime provisions and victuals for themselves and their families. In assemblies and gatherings, advise the Baháʼís openly and privately even to sell their furniture, and to buy and hold on to wheat, barley, sangak bread, lima beans, and maize.”
He also said:
“ʻAbduʼl-Bahá appeared to me in a dream and stated, ‘Scarcity and famine are in store this year. Woe betide the wealthy among the Baháʼís if even one of their impoverished brethren should starve to death!'”
Owing to Qá’im-Maqámí’s persistence and insistence—as well as this poor servant’s efforts to share the aforementioned anecdote with others and urgently exhort them to act accordingly, believing as I did in the significance of Qá’im-Maqámí’s dreams and remarks—the Baháʼís were eventually persuaded to prepare their wintertime provisions by whatever means necessary, even if it meant selling their rugs and other furnishings. In addition, those who had been charged with spiritual affairs began to gather resources that would aid the poor during the winter. To that end, these individuals solicited funds from every one of the most eminently wealthy Baháʼís, and successfully secured written commitments from them to donate large sums of money. Ultimately, a record of all these commitments was given to Qá’im-Maqámí; he calculated the total sum of these donations, and committed to match that amount from his own funds. With all this money, Qá’im-Maqámí purchased an ample supply of food in the name of the poor, and kept it in storage. Furthermore, he appointed a special committee that would visit the homes of every Baháʼí in Ṭihrán, determine the number of people in each family, and make a note of their income and expenses. Those who could not make ends meet, or did not have a cent to their name, did not escape the vigilant attention of Qá’im-Maqámí; every one of those needy souls received rations. Indeed, from the first sign of privation and paucity until the following spring, Qá’im-Maqámí saw to it that provisions were regularly given to every family that needed them. Even on the eve of the Persian New Year, he prepared rice cooked with shortening—so much so that there was plenty to go around—and he offered it to everyone so they could have a proper meal and remain in high spirits.
In brief, Qá’im-Maqámí did not allow even one Baháʼí to go hungry or live in dire straits—and this at a time when so many other people starved to death. Those poor souls would go to the slaughterhouse, drink whatever blood they could find, and ultimately die. Others would repair to the wilderness and eat grass—and there, too, would they perish. It was even heard that some of these people would kill and eat their own children, and also those of others. And yet, as far as the impoverished Baháʼís were concerned, not one of them starved to death.
It can truly be said that all these blessings allotted to the Baháʼís, poor and rich alike—inasmuch as the poor were rescued from hunger, and the rich were made the recipients of God’s grace and guidance—stemmed from the prudence, the purity of heart, the effectual measures, and the generosity of this noble man.
