Tahirih's Legacy

Inspiration
Upon unveiling her face at the Badasht conference, Tahirih uttered the following: "The sound of the trumpet which ushers in the Day of Judgment and the Resurrection, is my call to you now! Rise, brothers, the Quran is fulfilled and a new era has begun! Are you aware that this old custom of veiling the face was not enjoined by Muhammad so rigorously as you seem to observe? Have you never heard that the wives of the Prophet Himself, on their journeys, had their faces exposed? Do you not remember that in some matters, Muhammad was wont to tell His Disciples to go and ask His wife? ... today a great Light has come which changes all! ...Let us emancipate our women and reform our society. Let us arise out of our graves of superstition and self, and pronounce that the Day of Judgment is at hand; then shall the whole earth respond to freedom of conscience and new life! The blast of this trumpet of the Resurrection, it is." (Tahirih The Pure, Iran's Greatest Woman, p 4)

Symbolism
The set of 19 black beads symbolize the veil that Tahirih removed from her chador and the 'spiritual veils' that must be eliminated in our pursuit of nearness to God. The prayer beads themselves plus the semi-precious stones used in its transition and the ruby on the core vessel lid, refer to Tahirih's bequest (see accompanying story). Crystal clear beads symbolize Tahirih's freed spirit and the soul's greater ability to reflect the attributes of God when the 'veils' of worldliness and self are removed. The two crystals signify the Bab and Baha'u'llah as twin Manifestations. The green bead symbolizes the Bab as a Siyyid, a descendant of the Prophet Mohammed.
