All Day Birth of the Bab
Baha'i holyday: Birthday of Sayyid Al Muhammad of Iran (1819-1850), known as the “Bab” (the “Gateway” in Arabic). The Bab interpretated Islamic teachings in a profoundly new way and gathered a number of converts to him, which ultimately led to his execution. He prophesied the coming of one greater than himself, He Whom God Shall Manifest, later taken to be Baha’u’llah, laying the groundwork for the Baha’i faith.[i]

All Day Installation of Guru Granth as Scripture
Sikh holyday: On this day in 1708, Guru Gobind Singh, the 10th of the Sikh Gurus, declared the sacred text of Sikhism his successor, making it the supreme and everlasting spiritual guide for Sikhs.[i] Guru Granth Sahib (“Most Revered Book”) is the Head of the Sikh religion, revered as the Divine Word, and treated with the utmost respect during worship and in its repose.[ii] It contains the inspired writing of the first four Gurus, moral instruction for the improvement of the soul and spiritual salvation, and wisdom from the world’s religious traditions, as well as 3,000 hymns.[iii]
