And by the way, apparently the báb was fine with slavery.

Apparently the báb grew up in a household that had several slaves, and at no time in the báb's "ministry" did he ever condemn the practice.

"In 1844, when the báb declared his mission, slavery was still very widespread. It had been abolished in the British Empire as late as 1833, and remained legal in the United States until 1863. Slavery was not finally abolished in Iran until 1929.

Nor was slavery immediately abolished among followers of the báb and bahá’u’lláh.

The family of the báb possessed several slaves: one was his first tutor, and the subject of a eulogy penned by his young pupil/master in later years, crediting him as having raised him and comparing him favorably with his own father. The báb was martyred in 1850, at which time he had not abrogated or changed the laws of Islam that permitted and regulated the practice."
