BAHÁ’Í TEACHINGS.ORG




The Baha’i Faith has no clergy and invites everyone to take part in a life-long process of independent investigation and learning about how lofty spiritual principles — such as the elimination of prejudice and the equality of women and men — can be translated into a new social reality. The central teaching of the Baha’i Faith is the oneness of humanity, meaning that the long-promised age of global justice and peace is finally within humanity’s reach. The primary purpose of BahaiTeachings.org is to help advance this humanitarian process thorough striving to deepen our understanding of the Baha’i teachings and to apply these teachings to contemporary challenges.

“Bahá’u’lláh has drawn the circle of unity, He has made a design for the uniting of all the peoples, and for the gathering of them all under the shelter of the tent of universal unity. This is the work of the Divine Bounty, and we must all strive with heart and soul until we have the reality of unity in our midst, and as we work, so will strength be given unto us.
— ‘Abdu’l-Bahá

Ya Baha'u'l-Abha

Throughout history, God has sent Divine Educators
to guide the advancement of civilization

Bahá'u'lláh, the latest of these Messengers, taught that a just and peaceful global society is now possible. For more than a century, Bahá'ís in the United States have striven to give expression to the oneness of humanity, a core principle of their faith, by seeking to eliminate racial prejudice, advance the equality of women and men, and build vibrant spiritual communities that reflect the human family in all its diversity.

O my God! O my God! Unite the hearts of Thy servants, and reveal to them Thy great purpose. May they follow Thy commandments and abide in Thy law. Help them, O God, in their endeavor, and grant them strength to serve Thee. O God! Leave them not to themselves, but guide their steps by the light of Thy knowledge, and cheer their hearts by Thy love. Verily, Thou art their Helper and their Lord.

Bahá’u’lláh
