Ambassador to Humanity – Episode One: The Early Years

December 30, 2021, in Audio > Podcasts, by

Ambassador to Humanity is a podcast series of nine episodes in honor of the centenary of the passing of Abdu’l-Baha. The podcast was produced by BahaiTeachings.org and it recounts the life and work of this unique figure in human history, celebrating His life, His legacy, and His enduring influence on humanity. It includes eyewitness accounts from those who encountered Abdu’l-Baha and commentary from those who have studied His life and example.

This first episode opens at Abdu’l-Baha’s funeral, a funeral unlike any the Holy Land had ever seen. Tens of thousands of people lined the streets of Haifa to pay homage to one they considered as the benevolent father to all. The series recounts Abdu’l-Baha’s early years using the words of His devoted sister Bahiyyih Khanum, and tells the story of Baha’u’llah’s acceptance of the message of the Bab, which caused the family’s life to be thrown into turmoil.
