The Bahá’i Faith
The Bahá'i Faith is a worldwide religion based on the teachings of Bahá'u'llah (1817-1892).
Baha’u’llah is the most recent in the series of Divine Messengers who founded the world religions as part of the progressive revelation of God’s guidance to humanity.
A central theme of the Baha’i Faith is that humanity is one family bound together in a common destiny: a global society.
Recognition of the oneness of humanity is the key feature of this age, an age in which humankind is approaching its collective maturity.
People of goodwill need to come together to collaborate in building a just and peaceful global society in which all individuals can fulfil their potential.
Key principles of the Baha’i Faith:
Equality of women and men
Harmony of science and religion
Abolition of extremes of poverty and wealth
Elimination of all forms of prejudice
An equal standard of human rights for all people
Independent investigation of the truth
The oneness of humanity
The establishment of permanent and universal peace
Throughout the ages, God has sent Divine Messengers known as Manifestations of God—among them Abraham, Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Jesus Christ, Muhammad, and, in more recent times, The Báb and Bahá’u’lláh—to cultivate humanity’s spiritual, intellectual and moral capacities. Following the coming of a Manifestation of God extraordinary progress occurs in the world.
Reaching to the roots of human motivation, His teachings awaken in whole populations capacities to contribute to the advancement of civilization to an extent never before possible. Today, we find ourselves at the threshold of the coming of age of the human race. Passing through different stages, we have collectively traversed our infancy and childhood. Around the world, human society is being reshaped, and the ultimate trend is clear: we are witnessing nothing less than the organization of human society as a planetary civilization.
