The Roots of the Baha’i Faith: The Bab and Baha’u’llah

May 20, 2016, in Videos > Documentary, by

This wonderful short video about the Bab and Baha’u’llah was prepared by the Baha’i National Centre of the United States and explains the origins of the Baha’i Faith covering some of its early history.

There are a few articles on Baha’i Blog related to the history of the Faith and the impact of its Founders on the world. Here are a couple that might be of interest: The Bab – What was He like? and The Birth of Baha’u’llah and the Spirit of the Age. You can also read about the twin holy birthdays of the Bab and Baha’u’llah and their significance here.

Baha’i Blog has created a few quizzes about the history and facts of the Faith, including some on the Bab and Baha’u’llah. Click here to take them and don’t forget to let us know how it goes in the ‘comments’ section!

Hello Mary Lou! Sadly, I’m not aware that this short video can be purchased anywhere. However, if there is a Wifi connection at the venue for your Twin Holy Day celebrations, you should be able to watch the video directly from our website.

Hi, love this documentary. Would like to cite it for a research project. Would you happen to know the producer and year of publishing? Many Thanks.

Hi Paulina, as mentioned in the copy, the video was produced by the National office of the Baha’is of the United States, so you’d have to contact them for more information. Their contact page is here: https://www.bahai.us/
