Been reading through Baha'i awareness website and came across this Strange men have strange habits Another strange feature of Bab's life is that during his teens he used to stand on the roof of his house directly under the sun. He used to do this during the very hot summer days of Iran. Standing under the sun, he used to be busy in making signs to the sun. He used to do this all day long, so much so that people used to think he was a star worshipper. This strange habit of the Bab is mentioned in the book ‘Talkheese Nabil’ on page 66, by Ishraaq Khaavri, and Hashte Bahist by Mirza Aga Khan Kirmani. This action of standing under the hot sun had a severe impact on the mental faculty of the Bab. He never completely recovered from it. It was for the treatment of this mental illness that Bab was sent to Kerbala in Iraq, where he met Syed Kazim Rashti and studied under him. I guess the author of the site is an anti-Baha'i. I stand as either a Baha'i or Anti-Baha'i, infact read both point of views with equal curiosity. What would a Baha’i have to say about this? The Bab was a mystic in my point of view and I guess this highlights this. Had he not been sent to Kerbala in Iraq, he never would have met Syed Kazim Rashti and studied under him. And the course of the Baha'i faith would have fell apart?
