This captivating book revolves around the life of a child named “Reuben.” Born into a Jewish family in Kashan, Iran, during the reign of Naser al-Din Shah Qajar, young Reuben’s journey begins when, at the tender age of seven, he witnesses the public execution of a man named Sheikh Mazgani, martyred for his unwavering faith in the Bahá’í Faith. This poignant encounter leaves an indelible mark on Reuben’s heart and catalyzes his spiritual path. He stood among the initial Iranian Jews to embrace the Bahá’í Faith.

As he grows older, Reuben embraces the Bahá’í Faith, earning the esteemed title of “Mirza” from Bahá’u’lláh himself and the name “Reyhan” from ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. Within the pages of this book lie the vivid memoirs of Mirza Reyhan, recounting the hardships and persecution endured by the Bábí and Bahá’í communities, facing opposition from the fervent Jewish and Muslim majorities in his locality. Alongside these accounts, he shares precious memories of the early Bahá’ís of his time, weaving a narrative that both enlightens and touches the reader’s heart.
