Housing

Following a call for home-front pioneers, this Bahá'í family goes to live in a small town where accommodation is scarce and expensive.
Imagine their delight when they immediately find a basement apartment in a three story Victorian style house, at a very good price.
What they don't know is the apartment has a reputation for being haunted and no-body stays there longer than a week. Naturally, the estate agent didn't tell them. The towns folk all expect them to pack up and leave in a day or so.
A week passes, the kids go to school, the dad is seen leaving for work each day, the mum goes to the grocery store regularly. Not a sign of worry or stress on any of their faces. Finally, a neighbour just has to ask: "Don't you folks know that place is haunted? Doesn't it bother you?" "Sure," they say, "but we're Bahá’ís." "What does that have to do with not being worried by a ghost?" "Well," they say, "Bahá'u'lláh says:
'Fear not abasement' "

Bahá'ís everywhere...Don't Eat Me...

A Bahá'í pioneer was trespassing through the jungle of some tropical country, when suddenly he found himself surrounded by naked men with bones through their noses, waving spears. They tied him up and threw him in a stew-pot, then started piling firewood underneath. Drums sounded. In desperation, the pioneer began reciting the "remover of difficulties" prayer. Suddenly the drumming stopped. One cannibal looked at another and said "Hey guys! I think we've just found the ninth member of our LSA!"

Light Bulb

Q. How many Bahá’ís does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A. Bahá’ís don't do that. They teach the light bulb and if it wants to transform, it'll change itself!
