BICENTENARY

OF THE

BIRTH

OF THE

BAB

'

We have created you from one tree and have caused you to be as the leaves and fruit of the same tree, that haply ye may become a source of comfort to one another. Regard ye not others save as ye regard your own selves ...

It behooveth you all to be

one indivisible people.

~ The Bab

BIRTH OF THE TWIN MANIFESTATIONS

29th OCTOBER, 2019

THE EVENT

2019 marks the Baha’i Year, heralding an eagerly anticipated second historic bicentenary.

October will mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of the forerunner and herald of the Baha’i Faith, the Bab, whose dramatic ministry paved the way for the appearance of Baha’u’llah.

 

On the 29th before and after sunset, Baha’is, together with their neighbors, families, and friends, will commemorate the births of these Twin Luminaries.

 

29th October, Baha’is in over 200 countries worldwide celebrate the Birth of Siyyid Ali-Muhammad, the Herald of the Bahai Faith, whom is known as the Bab, a title that means both “Door” and “Gate” in Arabic.  The first of the two Manifestations of God — Prophets — of the Bahai faith, the Bab was born in 1819 in Persia, today’s Iran. 

 

To Baha’is, His birth represents the dawn of a divinely promised Day in humanity’s life, the age that will witness the maturity of the human race.  That maturity will be reflected both in its collective unity and in the uniqueness of its individual elements.  This is the dawn of a day during which Baha’is believe the human race will create “a world organically unified in all the essential aspects of its life, its political machinery, its spiritual aspiration, its trade and finance, its script and language, and yet infinite in the diversity of the national characteristics of its federated units.
