Who is Bahá’u’lláh?

Bahá’u’lláh was born into a wealthy, powerful family in Persia in the early 19th century, yet He would sacrifice His wealth and status for the sake of humanity.

In the middle of the 19th century, God summoned Bahá’u’lláh—meaning the “Glory of God”—to deliver a new Revelation to humanity.

For four decades thousands of verses, letters and books flowed from His pen.

In His Writings, He outlined a framework for the development of a global civilization which takes into account both the spiritual and material dimensions of human life.

Bahá’u’lláh suffered 40 years of imprisonment, torture and exile for bringing God’s latest message to humanity. Today, His life and mission are becoming increasingly well-known across the planet. Millions of people are learning to apply His teachings to their individual and collective lives for the betterment of the world.
