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.

Remembering the Bab (Part 2) – A Talk by Mr. Hooper Dunbar

February 19, 2019, in Videos > Talk, by

In this two-part talk given at the Baha’i Winter School, December 2018 in Malaysia, Mr. Hooper Dunbar shares some quotations from the Baha’i Writings and personal reflections to assist us in recognizing the Bab. Mr. Dunbar asks questions such as: How can we summarize the Bab’s Mission? What was He like? What is an overview of His Ministry? What is His Position and Rank?

Mr. Hooper Dunbar is a retired member of the Universal House of Justice, and has served at all levels of Baha’i administration for almost 40 years. He is also known for his works as an educator, publisher and translator, as well as being an accomplished painter and actor.
