Illuminated Baha'i calligraphy Kitab-i-Aqdas

When viewing an illuminated copy of the Kitab-i-Aqdas, I am reminded of how fortunate we are to have such a wealth of divine revelation written in the hand of the Manifestation of God, Himself. Baha’u’llah devoted much of His life to writing and this resulted in a richness of Baha’i scripture that is unprecedented in any religions of the past.

“Through the movement of Our Pen of Glory We have, at the bidding of the Omnipotent Ordainer, breathed a new life into every human frame, and instilled into every word a fresh potency. All created things proclaim the evidences of this worldwide regeneration.”


Negeen has had a film or digital SLR within arm’s reach for much of the past twenty years. She, her Italian-born husband, and Israeli-born children live in Oklahoma where she runs a wedding and photography business called Negeen Sobhani Photography. Stories behind the photos and new projects can be found on her blog.
