Birthday of Bahaullah | Naming the Days


The Baha’i religion is predicated on the teachings of nineteenth century Persian prophet Bahá’u’lláh (1817-1892). His timeless message of training tolerance, kindness, and love has created a long-lasting spiritual following.

Bahá’u’lláh, whose title means “The Glory of God,” taught that there’s one God whose successive revelations to humanity have been the chief civilizing drive in historical past. The brokers of this course of have been the Divine Messengers — mainly seen to be the founders of separate religions — whose widespread goal has been to deliver the human race to religious and ethical maturity.

Baha’i’s view Bahá’u’lláh as the primary particular person to understand the opportunity of unifying the human household and constructing a peaceable, world society. Although makes an attempt to discredit his work led to his imprisonment, torture, and exile in Palestine, he continued to write down extensively — not solely books and prayers, but in addition letters to world leaders, together with Pope Pius IX; Napoleon III, Emperor of France; Alexander II, Tsar of Russia; Queen Victoria of Nice Britain and Eire; Sultan Abdul-Aziz; and the Iranian ruler, Nasiri’d-Din Shah. In these letters, Bahá’u’lláh urged the leaders to pursue disarmament and exhorted them to band collectively right into a commonwealth of countries.

Among the many rules which the Baha’i religion promotes as important to the achievement of Bahá’u’lláh’s aim of unity are:

  • the abandonment of all types of prejudice
  • assurance to girls of full equality of alternative with males
  • recognition of the unity and relativity of spiritual reality
  • the elimination of extremes of poverty and wealth
  • the conclusion of common schooling
  • the accountability of every particular person to independently seek for reality
  • the institution of a worldwide commonwealth of countries
  • recognition that true faith is in concord with purpose and the pursuit of scientific information


After seeing in childhood that a whole puppet present about royalty and riches might match right into a field, Bahá’u’lláh wrote, “Ever since that day, all the trimmings of the world have appeared within the eyes of this Youth akin to that very same spectacle. They’ve by no means been, nor will they ever be, of any weight and consequence, be it to the extent of a grain of mustard seed.… Erelong these outward trappings, these seen treasures, these earthly vanities, these arrayed armies, these adorned vestures, these proud and overweening souls, all shall go into the confines of the grave, as if into that field. Within the eyes of these possessed of perception, all this battle, competition and vainglory hath ever been, and can ever be, like unto the play and pastimes of kids.”
— Bahá’u’lláh in The Summons of the Lord of Hosts

“My first counsel is that this: Possess a pure, kindly and radiant coronary heart, that thine could also be a sovereignty historic, imperishable and eternal.”
— Bahá’u’lláh in Hidden Phrases

“Within the nook the place the divan met the wall sat a wondrous and venerable determine, topped with a felt head-dress of the sort referred to as táj by dervishes (however of bizarre top and make), spherical the bottom of which was wound a small white turban. The face of him on whom I gazed I can always remember, although I can not describe it. These piercing eyes appeared to learn one’s very soul; energy and authority sat on that ample forehead; whereas the deep traces on the brow and face implied an age which the jet-black hair and beard flowing down in indistinguishable luxuriance nearly to the waist appeared to belie. No must ask in whose presence I stood, as I bowed myself earlier than one who’s the article of a devotion and love which kings would possibly envy and emperors sigh for in useless!”
— Edward Granville Browne after an interview with Bahá’u’lláh, as quoted by Peter Smith in An Introduction to the Baha’i Religion
