Who is Bahá'u'lláh?
Bahá'u'lláh (1817-1892) is the most recent of the Messengers of God who have, since before recorded times, sacrificed themselves so that we might know and love God. These Great Ones include Abraham, Moses, Buddha, Krishna, Zororaster, Christ, Muhammad and the Bab. Bahá'u'lláh has come in the Glory of the Father to unite all Faiths and mankind in one common cause, one common Faith.
Bahá'u'lláh teaches that humanity is one single race and that the day has come for its unification in one global society. God, Bahá'u'lláh said, has set in motion historical forces that are breaking down traditional barriers of race, class, creed, and nation and that will, in time, give birth to a universal civilization. The principal challenge facing the peoples of the earth is to accept the fact of their oneness and to assist the processes of unification. One of the purposes of the Bahá'í Faith is to help make this possible. A worldwide community of some five million Bahá'í representative of most of the nations, races and cultures on earth, is working to give Bahá'u'lláh’s teachings practical effect. Their experience will be a source of encouragement to all who share their vision of humanity as one global family and the earth as one homeland.
