Bahá'u'lláh and His Covenant

God loves humanity and has promised never to leave man alone and without Guidance; therefore, to show us His Love, God sends His Manifestations unto mankind to make His Will and Purpose known to us.

The Bahá'í Faith began with the mission entrusted by God to two Divine Messengers - the Báb and Bahá'u'lláh. In His Will and Testament, Bahá'u'lláh left explicit instructions on the continuity of guidance, after His ascension. This lineage, known as the Covenant, carries forth from Bahá'u'lláh to His eldest son ‘Abdu’l-Bahá , and then from ‘Abdu’l-Bahá to His grandson, Shoghi Effendi, and the Universal House of Justice, ordained by Bahá’u’lláh. A Bahá’í accepts the Divine Authority of the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh and of these appointed successors.

The Báb,the Herald
(1819 - 1850)

Several years before Bahá’u’lláh proclaimed His Mission, God sent a special Messenger to announce His coming. This great Messenger took the title "The Báb" which means "The Gate". He was indeed a Gate to the knowledge of God and to a New Era in human existence. He told the people that they were witnessing the dawn of a new age, the dawn of the promised day of God. He called upon them to purify their hearts from earthly vanities so that they could recognize Him Whom God would soon manifest.

(1817 - 1892)

Bahá’u’lláh, the Manifestation of God, is a bearer of a Divine Revelation that will generate the basis of a framework for the development of a world civilization that takes into account both the spiritual and the material dimension of human life. His writings cover an enormous range of subjects from social issues such as racial integration, the equality of men and women and compulsory education, to those questions that affect the innermost life of the human soul.

‘Abdu’l-Bahá, the Centre of Covenant
(1844 - 1921)

In His Will and Testament, Bahá’u’lláh appointed His eldest son ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, as the sole Interpreter of His Words and the Centre of His Covenant. He was a most precious gift given to humanity, the perfect Exemplar of all Bahá'í Teachings. Throughout East and West, Abdu'l-Bahá became known as an ambassador of peace, an exemplary human being, and the main promoter of the new Faith.
