The Birth of Baha’u’llah

in Explore > Calendar

Mirza Husayn-Ali, who is known to the world by His title, Baha’u’llah, was born in Tehran, Iran on 12 November, 1817. Baha’u’llah means “Glory of God” in Arabic and He is the Prophet-Founder of the Baha’i Faith. The anniversary of the day He was born is celebrated alongside the Birth of the forerunner of His Revelation, the Bab. These Twin Holy Days are celebrated annually as one festival where the closely interwoven missions of these two Divine Luminaries are remembered together.

Moreland Baha’i Community Prepares for the Bicentenary of Baha’u’llah’s Birth

April 1, 2017, in Videos > Documentary, by

In this video created by the Moreland Baha’i community in Australia, we catch a glimpse of how their community, like so many others around the world, is planning the celebration of the bicentenary of the Birth of Baha’u’llah taking place in 2017. The expectation is that the 200th Anniversary of the Birth of Baha’u’llah happening this year will be a big event. A really big event, with the hope of seeing 10 times the number of people attending as there are Baha’is in the community. 

For the Moreland Baha’i community, that means having an event with over 150 people – which is much larger than any event they’ve ever held before. Undeterred and with this goal in mind, they started planning early for an event that truly reflects their unique community, and something that they will be proud to invite everyone they know to.
