Who is Bahá’u’lláh ?
Bahá’u’lláh is the founder of the Bahá’í Faith. Bahá’ís regard Him as the most recent in the long line of great Figures — including Abraham, Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad — whose teachings are the foundation of the world’s great religions.
Bahá’u’lláh’s central teaching is that there is only one God and only one human race. All the world’s religions, He explained, represent stages in the revelation of God’s will for humanity. In this day, humanity has collectively come of age, and as foretold in all of the world’s scriptures, the time has arrived for the uniting of all peoples into a peaceful and integrated global society.
” The fundamental purpose animating the Faith of God and His Religion is to safeguard the interests and promote the unity of the human race, and to foster the spirit of love and fellowship amongst men. “
What do Bahá’í’s believe?
Bahá’u’lláh taught that there is one God, the same Creator recognised by the great religions of the world. He also taught that all the world’s major religions are successive stages in the ongoing revelation of the one Faith.
We believe all the great religions come from the same Source, God, and have the same essential purpose – to guide and educate the human race. Their spiritual core is one, but they differ in their secondary aspects such as social teachings, which change in relation to humanity’s evolving requirements. The principle of the oneness of humanity is the pivot around which all the teachings of Bahá’u’lláh revolve. For this reason Bahá’ís follow laws of personal morality and behaviour, as well as social laws and principles, all of which we see as promoting and establishing the oneness of humanity.
