Bab's Symbol of Five Sided Star
The symbol of the Bab was the five-pointed star. This was because in
Arabic "Bab" means "five" but also "gate".
So we can see that indeed Bab and Baha'i teachings are the fifth Seal
sent by God. Bahá'u'lláh, however, tried to complete Bab's teachings
and so the nine sided star also was sent for this religion.
This two symbols completes the coming of the twine Prophets is
fulfilled and also Bab's teaching was more perfected, but not the last
Revelation and/or a perfect Revelation.
It is shortly after this Revelation(s) (read the meaning of
6:10-11 in the Revelation of the Revelation) that the whole Truth will
be Revealed to humanity. This last Revelation now has come. It
is our teaching and the opening of the Seventh Seals.
