What does trusting another person looks like? Here are some ideas of what a trustworthy person looks like to start with. A person you can trust:

  • Tells the truth
  • Honors his/ her promises to another
  • Obeys the rules and laws even when no one is looking
  • Is honest (would never steal, cheat, or lie)
  • Is wise (He/she listens carefully to others and gives advice that is helpful to others.)

What does trusting in God look like?


For lessons 14 and 15 we will continue to memorize the prayer below

O Lord! Unto Thee I repair for refuge, and toward all Thy signs I set my heart.  O Lord! Whether traveling or at home, and in my occupation or in my work, I place my whole trust in Thee. Grant me then Thy sufficing help so as to make me independent of all things, O Thou Who art unsurpassed in Thy mercy! Bestow upon me my portion, O Lord, as Thou pleasest, and cause me to be satisfied with whatsoever thou hast ordained for me. Thine is the absolute authority to command

The Báb
Quote for class to memorize
You can use the following explanation to help you present today’s quotation to the children:

True friends trust each other. A trustworthy person is honest and truthful and can be
counted on to keep his or her word. True friends know that they can rely on each other to do what is right, that one would never lie to the other or deceive him or her in any way. They see what is good in each other and do not focus on their shortcomings and faults. Of course, they know that their friend may sometimes make a mistake, but they show forgiveness and kindness to their friend. Each wants to help the other to do what is pleasing in the sight of God; a true friend is careful not to ask us to do that which is
unacceptable before God. The trust that is shared between two friends becomes stronger and stronger the more they know each other. We are, of course, kind and courteous to all people and look for the good in everyone, but the bonds of trust that exist between friends are strengthened over time, as each shows that he or she is worthy of the trust of the other and wants what is best for him or her.
We should all be trustworthy and learn to choose friends who are trustworthy, those who wish to please God, who are striving to follow His path, and who will help us to stay on the straight path. We should not allow ourselves to be cheated or deceived by those who are not trustworthy. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá was the essence of kindness and courtesy, but He never allowed those who were dishonest or deceitful to take advantage of His kindness. Once a driver who brought ‘Abdu’l-Bahá to a meeting in his carriage demanded an unfair price for the ride. The Master paid what He rightly owed to the driver and told him that, had he been honest, he would have received a handsome tip as well. Trust is a special bond between friends, and we should take care not to do anything to break it. So that we each remember the importance of being a true and trustworthy friend, let us memorize the following quotation:

O ye beloved of the Lord! Commit not that which defileth the limpid stream of love or destroyeth the sweet fragrance of friendship


When one is learning how to write, one will surely make a few errors. It is not unusual to commit errors when one is learning how to write.

Portia does her best to obey the laws of God.  She does not want to commit any act that would displease Him.


The garden had once been beautiful, but some of the people who visited it left garbage and litter when they departed. The visitors defiled the garden with garbage they left.

The stream always ran clear and clean from the mountain. But a lot of chemicals and waste have been dumped into it recently. The stream has been defiled by waste being dumped into it.


The water in the pond was perfectly clear, and it was possible for Timothy to see many fish swimming along its bottom. Timothy could see to the very bottom of the limpid pond.

The water from the well is very clean and pure. Everyone felt refreshed to drink from the limpid waters of the well.


The young boy built a huge castle out of sand on the seashore, but when a wave came in and covered it, the castle was completely destroyed.

The farmers built a dam to stop the river from flooding onto their crops during the rainy season. Without the dam, their crops would be destroyed by the floods.

Damon and Pythias

There is a well-known legend of two friends, Damon and Pythias, that has come to symbolize trust and loyalty in friendship. It is suggested that you tell the story to the children today, explaining that it is a very old tale from the early history of humanity. WRITTEN AS A SCRIPT BELOW


  • Narrator
  • King Dionysius:
  • Pythias:
  • Damon

There is a well-known legend of two friends, Damon and Pythias, that has come to symbolize trust and loyalty in friendship. It is suggested that you tell the story to the children today, explaining that it is a very old tale from the early history of humanity.

Narrator: Ever since they were children, Damon and Pythias had been friends. They played together and studied  together and shared many of their thoughts with each other. They were so close that they trusted each other completely. Theirs was a true friendship; they would do anything to help each other.

Now, Damon and Pythias traveled to a city called Syracuse, which had a powerful king named Dionysius. There Pythias began giving public speeches that called into question the king’s unlimited power. Any king who took power without the permission of the people was an unjust tyrant, he told the crowds that stopped to listen. When he learned of Pythias’ growing  influence among his people, Dionysius became convinced that he was trying to overthrow him. Angry and fearful, the king had Pythias and his friend Damon brought before him.

Dionysius: questioning Pythias says: “Why are you causing unrest among the people?”

Pythias: “There is nothing wrong in what I do, “I speak only the truth. “

Dionysius: “I do not believe you. You are trying to overthrow me. Tell the people you were not speaking the truth.”

Pythias: “Iwill not.

Dionysius: “Then you must die. What is your last request?”

Pythias: I would like to be allowed to return to my family to say good-bye and put my things in order.

Dionysius scoffed at him: “I would be a fool to let you leave Syracuse and expect you to return.

Pythias: I give you my word that I will return.

Narrator:But the king would not hear of it.

Just then Damon breaks in

Damon: “Pythias will return if you keep me as your prisoner while he is away, and if he breaks his promise, you may kill me instead. Surely you have heard of our friendship. You must believe, as I do, that Pythias would never allow his friend to be executed in his place.”

Dionysius:Hmmm. Let me think about this.  Ok.  I accept this unusual proposal, but I give you a warning. Pythias must return by a week from tomorrow; otherwise Damon will be killed.

Narrator: As the days passed and Pythias did not return, the king was sure that Damon would regret his selfless act. He decided to visit Damon in jail to see whether he thought himself a fool for trusting Pythias.

Dionysius: How are you feeling Damon? Pythias has not come back yet. 

Damon: (said confidently) “Pythias must be delayed. He will return. “

Dionysius:  laughing scornfully,  “We shall see.”

Narrator: On the appointed day, Pythias still had not returned. The king had Damon brought before the executioner.

Dionysius: “The time has arrived, and yet your friend has not come for you.  What do you say now? “

Damon calmly replied, “I trust my friend completely. “

At that very moment, the doors opened and a bruised and breathless Pythias staggered into the room towards Damon’s open arms.  

Pythias: Thank God, you are still alive! I was afraid I would not reach here in time. My ship was wrecked in a storm and bandits attacked me on the road, but still I could not give up hope that I would make it. ” Turning to the king,  I am ready to die.

Narrator: The king was so astonished by the fidelity and steadfast trust of the two friends that he could not bring himself to carry out the unjust execution.

Dionysius: “Never in my life have I seen such devotion and faith in friendship. Because you have shown me that I was wrong to have doubted you, I have decided to pardon you Pythias-on one condition. “

Pythias and Damon say together: “What is that?”

Dionysius: That you teach me how to be such a friend.”

From “Stories About‘Abdu’l-Bahá” by Gloria Faizi.

One day a woman came to ‘Abdu’l-Bahá with her sorrows. As she told her story,‘Abdu’l-Bahá tried to calm her and said, “Don’t be sad now, don’t be sad.”

The Woman said, “My brother has been in prison for three years. He should not have been imprisoned because it was not his fault. He was weak and followed others. He will be in prison for four more years. My mother and father are full of sorrow all the time. My brother-in-law used to take care of us, but he has just died.”

The Master could see the whole human story. Here was a family which was experiencing every form of misery-they were poor, they were weak, they were sad, disgraced, and without any hope whatsoever.

‘Abdu’l-Bahá said, “You must trust in God.”

“But,” the woman cried, “the more I trust, the worse things become!”

“You have never trusted,” said ‘Abdu’l-Bahá.

“But my mother is reading the Bible all of the time,” she said. “She does not deserve that God should leave her so helpless! I read the Bible myself; I say the 91st Psalm and the 23rd Psalm every night before I go to bed. I pray too.”

‘Abdu’l-Bahá looked at her lovingly and said, “To pray is not to read the Bible. To pray is to trust in God and accept His Will. You must be patient and accept the Will of God, then things will change for you. Put your family in God’s hands. Trust in God and love His Will. Strong ships are not conquered by the sea; they ride the waves! Now be a strong ship, not a battered one.”

Draw any part of the story

To help the children continue developing the skills and abilities of creative drama, you may have them carry out the following activities:

Begin by having the students do the stretching exercise in their imaginary squares. Ask them to remain in their squares and pretend to change from: an elephant into a mouse, a snake into a lion, a frog into a horse, a fish into a whale, a ballet dancer into a football player, an old man or lady into a young boy or girl.

Now ask the children to pursue their lips together and say: 0000 00000 000000.

Tell them to take a deep breath and see how long they can make it last: 00000000 00000000000000000000000

Ask them to make a short sharp sound: a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a.

Now tell them to put the two sounds  together:  00000  a.a.a.  ooa.  ooa.a. oooooooooa. oa. ooooa. ooa.a.a.a.a.

Let the children experiment with making different combinations, and then divide the youngsters into pairs. Tell them to use only these sounds, “oooo” and “a”, to talk to each other in the following situations:

  • Two children are trading marbles for crayons.
  • Two children are bathing a puppy.
  • One child is teaching another to skip.
  • A mother is getting a child ready for school.
  • Two people are harvesting com.
  • A child is telling a bus driver that he or she has no money.
  • Someone who is lost is asking someone else for directions.

Divide into groups- one teacher with one and the other teacher with another To help the children gain further understanding of the theme of this lesson-that true friends trust each other-you may wish to have them re-enact the story of Damon and Pythias. Depending on the number of children in your class and the time available, you could either divide them into groups for this purpose or have all the children participate in one large re-enactment. In the latter case, some of the children could be part of the crowd to whom Pythias spoke or members of the king’s court,while others could be Damon’s jailers or the bandits that attacked Pythias. Bring children all back together first and then: Following the re-enactment, you could ask the children a few questions such as:

  • Why was Damon willing to be in prison for his friend?
  • Why did Damon trust that Pythias would return?
  • Why was the king astonished when Pythias returned for the execution?
  • What qualities did Pythias demonstrate by returning as he did?
  • Why do you think the king changed his mind about the execution?
  • What do you think Damon and  Pythias could teach the king about friendship?
  1. In pairs, one blindfolded and the other one is to lead him to somewhere e.g tree, and let him feel the tree.  Change over.
  2. Objects are scattered in an indoor or outdoor place.  In pairs, one person verbally guides his/her partner, a blindfolded person, through the minefield. 



Based on the second story where ‘Abdu’l-Baha says: Strong ships are not conquered by the sea; they ride the waves!

Make/ paint/ draw a ship sailing on the waves and add the phrase “Strong ships are not conquered by the sea; they ride the waves!”

Make a card to thank someone for being a person you can trust.

The card does not have to be given to anyone: Although that is very nice. It can honor those who have died or people whose names or addresses are unknown. A display can be made of the cards and include “People we would like to thank for being trustworthy.”

The purpose of this lesson is to recognize that the Báb was the Herald of a New Era. To help us reflect on this theme, lets us review what we have learned so far:

In the past few lessons, we have seen that the appearance of the Báb created hope among the people of Persia.

Many recognized that a new period in human history had opened.

For hundreds of thousands of years, humanity has grown in number, in experience and in knowledge.

How did humanity live at the beginning of its history? 

There was a long period when human beings lived in caves and roamed the earth in small bands. But did humanity stay in small bands?

What came next?

Can one family achieve as much as several families united in a clan or tribe?

As humanity advanced, people joined together in clans and tribes and were able to accomplish many new things; some soon began to build villages and, later on, towns. Gradually great cities came into being. Over the past few hundred years, people have gone even further and created nations.

What do you think these nations need to learn to do? 

Will humanity achieve more if all the nations remain separate or if they are united and cooperate and support one another?

We see that, during its long history, humanity has accomplished extraordinary things; yet its life has not always been a happy one.

Often humanity’s life has been full of fear and grief,

Only for a few brief periods has justice ruled here and there. Terrible acts of cruelty have been committed. Wars have continually brought pain and suffering to the world. But, as long as humanity has existed, the hope has been that someday a new world would be built and a glorious era would begin in the life of humanity.

We know that this new Day has now dawned,

We know that Bahá’u’lláh has come to lead humanity into an era of great peace and prosperity. This new Day began in 1844 when the Báb declared His Mission. Do you know what the word ‘herald’ means? A herald is one who makes an announcement. The Báb came to announce the beginning of a new life for humanity. The Báb is the Herald of a new Era.

ruhi book 3 grade 3 prayer

1. Is there any remover of difficulties save God?  Say: Praised be God! He is God! All are His servants, and all abide by His bidding!

2. Say: God sufficeth all things above all things, and nothing in the heavens or in the earth but God sufficeth. Verily, He is in Himself the Knower, the Sustainer, the Omnipotent.

3. O Lord! Thou art the Remover of every anguish and the Dispeller of every affliction. Thou art He who banisheth every sorrow and setteth free every slave, the Redeemer of every soul.  O Lord! Grant deliverance through Thy mercy, and reckon me among such servants of Thine as have gained salvation.

Historical Episodes

We have two stories for this lesson, which, together, make up the historical episode. The first is the story of Ṭáhirih, the great poetess and champion of the cause of the equality of men and women. Some of you may remember the story of Ṭáhirih told to them in second grade. Does anyone remember some of the points?

 The story in this lesson focuses on the Conference of Badasht. The second story describes the valiant efforts exerted by the village maiden, Zaynab, in the Zanján upheaval. 


One of the eighteen Letters of the Living was a remarkable woman who will always be remembered as the most courageous champion of the cause of the equality of men and women. Her name was Ṭáhirih. She was born to a distinguished family of the Muslim clergy, and she herself was extremely knowledgeable and highly accomplished. She wrote the most beautiful poetry; when someday you read or hear her poetry, you will think of her soul as a great ocean, deep and full of the most precious pearls. Of the eighteen Letters of the Living, only Ṭáhirih accepted the Báb without having met Him. She knew in her heart that the Promised Qá’im had appeared, and she had already seen Him in a dream.

Whenever a Manifestation of God appears on earth, the unjust and the ungodly rise against Him and inflict great suffering on Him and those who believe in Him. This is what happened to the Báb and His followers as His fame spread throughout the country. You already know that the Báb Himself was exiled to the far-away mountains in the northwest corner of the country. The authorities had thought that, by sending Him to such a remote place, they would succeed in putting out the light of His Faith. But, of course, no one can put out the light that has been lit by the Hand of God, and the Message of the Báb continued to spread. The number of Bábís grew rapidly, but so did the fierce opposition of power-hungry leaders and their ignorant followers.

It was during this period that some of those who had recognized the Báb gathered together for an historic conference known as the Conference of Badasht. Bahá’u’lláh was one of the believers present at this conference, as were Quddús and Ṭáhirih. When you are older, you will study the account of Badasht yourselves and become informed of its details, but for now it suffices to say that on that occasion the followers of the Báb boldly announced their independence from Islám, the official religion of the country. Guided by Bahá’u’lláh, Who was not yet known as the Manifestation of God for today, they came to realize that indeed a new Day had dawned, that they had to put the past behind them and enter a new Era. 

In the electrifying atmosphere of the Conference of Badasht, Ṭáhirih made a most breathtaking announcement about breaking with the past. As you know, throughout all of history women have been treated as inferior to men; they have not received the same education as men, and their voices have not been properly heard. In certain places, they have not even been allowed to show their faces to any man outside of their immediate families. In the presence of other men, they have been required to wear a veil. This custom still exists in some parts of the world today, and in the days of the Báb it was firmly established in Persia. In fact, it was more than a mere custom; it was considered a religious law not to be broken. So imagine how the men gathered at the Conference of Badasht felt when one day Ṭáhirih appeared without a veil covering her face.

There was a great commotion. A few of the followers of the Báb were so shocked that they ran away. Others stood dumbfounded. Even Quddús showed signs of anger. But Ṭáhirih seated herself next to Quddús with dignity and confidence. Her face was radiant. She arose and spoke. Her words were so powerful that they penetrated the hearts of everyone present. She called on the believers to break from the past and hold firmly to the laws revealed by the Báb. She made certain remarks about the greatness of Bahá’u’lláh which at the time few could comprehend. She finished her speech by saying that she was the Word which the Promised Qá’im was to utter. And who could deny that she had acted as a mighty Word uttered by the Báb heralding the beginning of a new Era in human existence? Who could deny that she had sounded the trumpet call announcing the equality of men and women?

Download the story the trumpet blast from Brilliant Star Magazine here


Gradually, all around the world this call was heard as the spiritual forces released by the appearance of God’s new Manifestation on earth began to open the way for people to see new possibilities. Even in those early days in Persia, where the life of a woman was so restricted, there were women rising to take their place alongside men. One such woman was a maiden called Zaynab from a village near the town of Zanján.

Not long after the Conference in Badasht,  Muḥammad Sháh, the king of Persia, passed away and his incompetent Prime Minister fell into disgrace. The king’s young son, Náṣiri’d-Dín Mírzá, came to the throne, and he appointed a new Prime Minister, who decided that vigorous steps needed to be taken to stop the spread of the Message of the Báb. The ensuing years would witness outbreaks of intense persecution across the country directed against His followers. Many would be subjected to acts of the most savage brutality and would give up their lives for the new-born Faith.

In the next lesson, we will learn about the valor and heroism that Mullá Ḥusayn and Quddús displayed in the months immediately after the Conference of Badasht. For now, let us jump ahead about two years to Zanján, which was the scene of one of the fiercest attacks.

The governor of Zanján was not a strong man, and he allowed himself to be manipulated by the clergy. At their bidding, he sent a crier through the streets to warn the people of what was to come. Whoever wanted his protection was advised to move to one side of the town, away from the Bábís, who were all left on the other side. Now the town was divided into two camps, and the governor brought in troops from the neighboring villages to mount an assault. While the enemy camp was busy with preparations, the innocent Bábís took refuge in a nearby fort. There were some three thousand men, women and children who wanted nothing more than to live peaceful lives and follow the teachings brought by God’s new Manifestation. But it was not to be so. They were soon attacked, and then again and again. Each time a few from the fort would rush out and scatter the enemy forces. And each time, Ḥujjat, a most devoted follower of the Báb, about whom you will learn more when you are older, would urge his companions to refrain from aggression and acts of violence. Their sole purpose, he reminded them, was to defend themselves and to protect the women and children, who, they knew, would be treated savagely if they failed.

Now, among those in the fort was the young maiden Zaynab. At seeing the trials and hardships that the men had to endure, she yearned to assist them. But, as a woman, she was not expected to have courage and bravery. Finally, however, she could sit still no longer. One day she cut off her hair, put on the clothes of a man, and introduced herself to those defending the fort, taking her place alongside them. And, as soon as the enemy charged, she drew a sword and flung herself upon the forces that surrounded her. All those who saw her that day, friend and foe, marveled at her courage and resourcefulness. Overwhelmed with fear, the enemy troops fled from her in disgrace.

Ḥujjat, who was watching the scene from a distance, realized that this brave soul was none other than young Zaynab. “No man,” he was heard to say, “has shown himself capable of such vitality and courage.” Once she had returned, Ḥujjat asked her why she had disguised herself as a man. At this she burst into tears.

“My heart ached with pity and sorrow,” she said, “when I beheld the toil and sufferings of my fellow-disciples.”

She explained how much she longed to help the men defending the fort, but she was afraid that she would be denied the opportunity because she was a woman. She begged him to allow her to continue to assist thus disguised.

Ḥujjat was profoundly impressed by her words. He calmed her and assured her of his prayers on her behalf.

“Not by their outward appearance, but by the character of their beliefs and the manner of their lives, does God judge His creatures, be they men or women,” he told her. “Though a maiden of tender age and immature experience, you have displayed such vitality and resource as few men could hope to surpass.”

And so he granted her request. He warned her, however, as he did her male companions, not to exceed the bounds their Faith had imposed upon them. “We are called upon to defend our lives against a treacherous assailant,” he advised. Bloodshed was to be avoided as much as possible.
For the next five months, Zaynab continued to defend the fort with a heroism that few could match. She slept little and ate little. Her sword was always by her side, so that she would be ready to rush to the rescue of whoever needed her assistance. During the brief moments that she found time to sleep, she could be seen with her head resting upon her sword and her shield serving as a cover for her body. Eventually, of course, the enemy discovered her secret and knew that she was a woman. Yet their fear of her capacity and courage never diminished. Still they trembled at her approach.

Then one day, seeing that a group of her companions were suddenly surrounded by enemy troops, Zaynab ran to Ḥujjat and begged him, with tearful eyes, to allow her to go to their aid. She feared not, she declared, for her life. Ḥujjat was deeply touched by her request, and before he could reply, she leapt out of the gate and flung herself upon the enemy. A number of her fellow defenders of the fort had already been slain. She ran to the barricades that the enemy had erected, and the fearful guards at the first line of defense abandoned their post and scattered in fear. She then ran to the second line of defense, and then to the third, and the guards also fled. She was making her way to the fourth when the bullets of the enemy found her and she dropped dead upon the ground.

For a period of five months Zaynab had demonstrated a courage in the face of danger that no one thought possible of a woman at the time. So inspired by her devotion and fearlessness were some twenty women who knew her that they, too, embraced the Cause of the Báb. Alas, four months after her passing, following a massive assault, Ḥujjat and his companions could hold the enemy back no longer and the troops stormed the gates of the fort. A hundred women and children were captured that day, while all the others sought shelter in some nearby houses. Not long after, the wife and baby of Ḥujjat would be killed by cannon fire, and Ḥujjat would then die from his wounds. What happened to those who remained is too terrible to describe. In all, some one thousand and eight hundred souls lost their lives during that nine-month siege, and by its treachery and cruelty the enemy had shown how corrupt was the old Order that the Báb, the Herald of a new Era, had come to sweep away.

In the above episode, Ḥujjat shares with Zaynab a most profound and important spiritual truth—namely, that the human soul has no gender and that all are equal in the sight of God.
