Celebrating the bicentenary of the birth of the Báb

Shrine of the Bab

 

This year (2019) Bahá’ís all over the world are celebrating the bicentenary of the birth of the Báb. Two hundred years after His birth, the Faith of Bahá’u’lláh has spread to virtually every country in the world. The photograph shows the entrance to the Shrine of the Báb.

Bahá’ís understand that each Messenger builds upon the Messages of Those gone before. Like children in a school, we learn more from each Teacher, so that our individual souls may progress towards spiritual perfection, and human society may make progress towards equality, prosperity and peace.

All the Messengers in the past have promised that a great World Teacher would come Who would bring an age of peace to mankind. Bahá’ís believe that Bahá’u’lláh fulfilled all the promises and prophecies of the past when He announced His Message to the world. We believe that the same spirit which was in all the Messengers is in Bahá’u’lláh.
