Thu 11/16 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm EST
In the Lawh-i-Tibb (Tablet of Medicine), Bahá’u’lláh relates medical and dietary advice. Written in terms familiar to physicians from the old school of Eastern healing, much can be gleaned from it today. Without an authoritative translation, Dr. Sam Delchad will guide participants through a study of this important tablet in English. He has been leading the group, Studying the Writings in Arabic, since 2020, and they would like to open these two special sessions on November 9th & 16th covering the Tablet of Medicine to others not familiar with the Arabic language. All are invited.
Dr. Sam Delchad is a sixth-generation Bahá’í. Born in Jordan and educated in the U.K., he has been living in Southern California for nearly 40 years.
Dr. Delchad has served on both elected and appointed Bahá’í institutions on two continents, and currently serves on the Regional Council for California.
He has lectured extensively on the Bahá’í Faith, and facilitated formal and informal studies of the Faith, with emphasis on the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh.
He has also been engaged in translating the Writings from Arabic into English, although said translations are unofficial.
Professionally, Dr. Delchad is an Associate of the Royal Institute of Chemistry, and is currently co-owner and managing partner of a specialty chemical company that serves the petroleum and environmental industries.
