Bicentenary Birth of the Bab
Time & Location
About the Event
29th October 2019, Baha’is in over 200 countries worldwide celebrate the Birth of Siyyid Ali-Muhammad, the Herald of the Bahai Faith, who 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".
