The Bahá'u'lláh

The Bahaí Faith

Bahá’u’lláh was the founder of the Bahá’í Faith and a major religious figure of the 19th century. Born in Tehran, Iran in 1817, he became a prominent member of the Bábí faith, which was a precursor to the Bahá’í Faith. In 1863, Bahá’u’lláh declared himself to be the messenger of God for this age and founded the Bahá’í Faith, which emphasizes the unity of all religions and the equality of all people.

Bahá’u’lláh’s teachings emphasize the oneness of God, the oneness of religion, and the oneness of humanity. He taught that all religions are fundamentally one and come from the same divine source. He also emphasized the importance of spiritual and moral development, the need for justice and equity, and the need for global unity and cooperation.

Bahá’u’lláh’s teachings have inspired millions of people around the world and have led to the creation of the Bahá’í community, which has grown to become one of the most diverse and widespread religions in the world. Bahá’u’lláh also proclaimed himself as “Him whom God shall make manifest,” that the Bab, the forerunner of the Faith, mentions in his writings.
