One thought on “Declaration of the Bab”

  1. Alláh-u-Abhá, Dear Bahá’í Friends,

    I know why there is no year 0 in the Christian calender: they did not understand the number 0 then. But why did not the Báb choose a year 0 when he made the Bahá’í Calendar?

    Now 1843 is the year -1 B.E. and 1844 (after Naw Ruz of course is the year 1 B.E. Why no year 0?

    Excuse me for my bad English, but I am so tired today.
