Set in `Akká in 1911, this fictional story narrates the quest of a young Bahá’í to learn about the life of Bahá’u’lláh after he has experienced an evocative and mysterious dream. As he inquires about the sequence of events that characterize the series of exiles and tribulations that Bahá’u’lláh faced, Ali finds that the Bahá’í Faith is not simply some ideas he inherited from his parents and the local community, but his own belief to which he can now dedicate himself, whether in the present, or in the future when he becomes an adult with his own family.
This sequel to Ali’s Dream is the story of Hasan, Ali’s cousin, who moves in with Ali’s family. Because his parents were martyred as Bahá’ís, Hasan has been raised by his grandmother who, as a Moslem, has told him nothing about the Bahá’í Faith. The story narrates how Hasan eventually comes to terms with the Bahá’í Faith through the conversations he has with Ali and his family, as well as with the Bahá’ís who live in the area near `Akká, particularly in Adasíyyih.
This is a completely revised version of Conversations published as a companion work to the revised edition of Ali’s Dream by the Bahá’í Publishing Trust of the United States. This is much more readable for the youth, for whom it was originally intended.
