Bahá’u’lláh—the “Glory of God”—is the Promised One foretold by the Báb and all of the Divine Messengers of the past. 2017 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of the founder of the Bahá’í, Bahá’u’lláh (1817-1892).

Bahá’u’lláh delivered a new Revelation from God to humanity. 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. For this, He endured 40 years of imprisonment, torture, and exile.

 ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Bahá’u’lláh's son, talked about his father in these words

"Bahá’u’lláh has drawn the circle of unity, He has made a design for the uniting of all the peoples, and for the gathering of them all under the shelter of the tent of universal unity. This is the work of the Divine Bounty, and we must all strive with heart and soul until we have the reality of unity in our midst, and as we work, so will strength be given unto us."
