stylized flame200th Birthday of the Bab

Celebrating the Unity of Humanity!

Throughout history, God has sent Messengers to guide humanity in its development. Over these countless centuries, we humans have passed through our collective childhood and adolescence and are now entering our long-awaited age of maturity. So great is this Day, that God has two Messengers, the Bab and Baha’u’llah, with a vast vision for humanity: the building of a global civilization. This year, we celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Birth of the Bab and we invite you to join in the festivities.

Assuredly we are today living in the Days of God. These are the glorious days on the like of which the sun hath never risen in the past. The Báb
