The Declaration of the Bab

in Explore > Calendar

On a spring evening on May 22rd, 1844, Siyyid Ali-Muhammad announced that He was the bearer of a Divine Revelation whose aim was to prepare the world for “Him Whom God Shall Make Manifest,” a Messenger of God known as Baha’u’llah. Baha’is refer to Siyyid Ali-Muhammad by His title, the Bab, which is Arabic for “the Gate,” and that eventful evening is celebrated every year by Baha’is around the world.

The Promised One – A Story from the Baha’i Faith

May 17, 2023, in Videos > Short Film, by

In this video, we explore a story from early Baha’i history, sourced from famed Baha’i historian Nabil’s much celebrated opus The Dawn-Breakers. In this story we hear of the Bab’s summoning to a convocation of religious leaders in Tabriz, and the extraordinary pronouncement He made at that gathering.

More information and resources related to the Declaration of the Bab can be found in a special collection.

The words of the Bab included in this video have also been sung in our Studio Sessions series in the songs “I Am the Promised One” by Carl Brehmer and “I Am” by Harvin, Nishana, Satchit, Shalynn & Sharlene.
