Some pages of the paper publication of the magazine are also included in this post.

The page to the left shows a photograph of Dr. Labib Iskandar Hanna, his wife Remonda and his two sons Ragi and Hadi.

The other page to the right shows a picture of Mr. Sami Bebawy who was interviewed in the article regarding his upbringing as a Baha'i. The story of how his father Nassif became a Baha'i after having been raised as a Coptic Christian was also told at the opening of the article.

The third page to the left shows a Baha'i symbol glorifying God and illustrating the covenant between God, His Messenger and man. It describes the Baha'i beliefs as well as the historical events related to the Baha'i Faith in Egypt since its introduction in that country in the late nineteenth century shortly after the declaration of its Founder Baha'u'llah.

The fourth page to the right shows a picture of an open book: al-Kitab el-Aqdas (Arabic) [the Most Holy Book (English)], which is the book of laws for the Baha'is revealed by Baha'u'llah, the Founder of the Baha'i Faith and the recipient of a vast revelation consisting of more than a hundred volumes of writings and guidance to humanity. For example, the equivalent of the Holy Qur'an in length was revealed in approximately six hours of time. In order to get a glimpse of the enormity of this revelation one can check these sites, in English and in Arabic.
