The Bahá’í Faith began in Iran in 1844. Growing to be a world-wide faith, there have been Bahá’í’s in the UK since 1896. The forerunner of the Bahá’í Faith, the Bab (Siyyid `Ali Muhammad), was a descendant of the prophet Muhammad. He declared that his mission was to herald the arrival of one greater than himself. Baha’u’llah (Mirza Husayn `Ali) declared that he was ‘the bringer of divine revelation’, the fulfilment of the promise of the Bab and of the prophets of other religions.

Bahá’í teachings include:

  • that there is one God, the oneness of humanity

  • the common foundation of all religions

  • the equality of women and men

  • the need to abolish the extremes of wealth and poverty

  • the harmony of science and religion

  • sustainable development and the establishment of universal peace
