The Baha'i Faith...

Upholds the oneness of God, the oneness of religion, and the oneness of the human race. It proclaims the necessity and the inevitability of the unification of mankind as the next stage in the collective evolution of mankind. Its founder, Bahá’u’lláh (1817-1892), is regarded by Bahá’ís as the most recent in the line of Divinely inspired Educators who have been guiding mankind throughout history and which included Abraham, Moses, Buddha, Krishna, Zoroaster, Christ and Muhammad.

For the curious...

Baha’is believe that in all matters the truth should be independently sought, free from prejudice or bias. That logic and reason are gifts of a Divine Providence, and that if a religious opinion is contrary to reason then it is superstition. That work performed to the best of one’s ability, and in a spirit of service is as noble as the worship of God. That no matter how materially advanced mankind may be, its material progress alone cannot guarantee its true contentment and happiness. That the foundation of human happiness is spiritual behaviour.

For the religious...

The Founder of the Baha’i Faith – Bahá’u’lláh, is to Christianity – Christ returned “in the glory of the Father”; to Shi’ah Islam – the return of the “Imam Husayn”; to Sunni Islam – the descent of the “Spirit of God” (Jesus Christ); to the Zoroastrians – the promised “Shah-Bahram”; to the Hindus – the reincarnation of “Krishna”; and to the Buddhists – the fifth “Buddha”
