This section is for all materials relating to or commenting on those movements that recognise the writings of Baha'u'llah as divinely revealed Scripture. The Baha'i Faith traces its origins to the declaration of the Bab in 1844, making it year one in the Baha'i calendar. The Bab was executed by Persian authorities in 1851, but His Dispensation lasted nineteen years, and ended with the Declaration of Baha'u'llah in Baghdad in 1863. Baha'ism Religion and Spirituality Society.
The Bahá'í Faith ( Persian: Bahā'i ; بهائی ) is a monotheistic religion which emphasizes the spiritual unity of all humankind. (wikipedia)
- Wikipedia: The Bah ' Faith is a religion teaching the essential worth of all religions, and the unity and equality of all people. Established by Bah 'u'll h in 1863, it initially grew in Iran and parts of the Middle East, where it has faced ongoing persecution since its inception. Currently it has between 5 and 7 million adherents, known as Bah ' s, spread out into most of the world's countries and territories. It grew from the mid-19th-century B b religion, whose founder taught that God would soon send a prophet in the manner of Jesus or Muhammad. In 1863, after being banished from his native Iran, Bah 'u'll h announced that he was this prophet. He was further exiled, spending over a decade in the prison city of Akka in the Ottoman province of Syria, in what is now Israel. Following Bah 'u'll h's death in 1892, leadership of the religion fell to his son `Abdu'l-Bah , and later his great-grandson Shoghi Effendi.
