By Mahvash Sabet,Bahiyyih Nakhjavani

"My first stumble upon with Mahvash Sabet came about on a sizzling summer’s day. After many hours of tedious ready in a unique room put aside for legal professionals, i used to be eventually allowed to fulfill her within the presence of 2 ladies guards . . . it was once visible that the Baha'i prisoners were disadvantaged of clean air and sunlight for a very long time; their complete beings appeared thirsty for the energizing warmth and light of the solar. besides the fact that, regardless of all their hardships, their will remained unbroken." Mahnaz Parakand, Member of the heart for Human Rights defenders and one of many 4 attorneys for the Yaran

Mahvash Sabet served for a number of years as secretary of a casual council of 7 contributors referred to as the Yaran, who've been accountable for handling the affairs of the Iranian Baha'i group. In 2008 she used to be arrested and jailed for two-and-a-half years with no right listening to. She used to be eventually convicted and condemned in 2010, along with her fellow contributors of the Yaran, to 20 years imprisonment. underneath all of the fake accusations – these often fabricated opposed to the Baha'is in Iran – there has been not anything greater than her trust in her religion and her dedication to working the affairs of the Bahá’í community.

Her poems have allowed her to talk while phrases have been denied, to speak whilst nobody used to be hearing her. yet in contrast to many legal poems, hers usually are not only a catalog of hopes and fears. occasionally a way of old documentation, a chronicle of what the Baha'is were subjected to on the grounds that their incarceration; occasionally a chain of snap shots of alternative ladies trapped in legal along with her; occasionally meditations on powerlessness, on loneliness; her poems are plangent with charm, ardent with desire – for regardless of the accusations opposed to her, she is a prisoner of religion.

Adapted from the Persian through Bahiyyih Nakhjavani in line with translations by way of Violette and Ali Nakhjavani, those poems testify to the braveness and the depression, the distress and the hopes of millions of Iranians suffering to outlive stipulations of utmost oppression.
