Humanity is in need of a vision …

…that unites all the peoples of the world. Such a vision unfolds within the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, the Prophet Founder of the Baháí Faith. Bahá’u’lláh’s teachings form the basis of the Baháí Faith, and inspires individuals and communities to strive to translate His teachings into action for the betterment of society.

A united, just and peaceful society that celebrates and embraces the diversity of the human family, supported by a spiritual and moral framework, is now well within our grasp.

What Bahá’ís Believe

God the Unknowable Essence

O SON OF MAN! I loved thy creation, hence I created thee. Wherefore, do thou love Me, that I may name thy name and fill thy soul with the spirit of life.
– Bahá’u’lláh

Through His eternal love of us, God is the Creator of all things. Though His essence is far beyond the understanding of any mortal mind, we find expressions of His attributes in every created thing and we receive God’s guidance through the Divine Educators, or Manifestations of God. Their teachings help us to know God and our purpose, and fill us with the knowledge and capacity we need to progress materially and spiritually.

Oneness of Religion

“This is the changeless Faith of God, eternal in the past, eternal in the future.”
– Bahá’u’lláh

Throughout the ages, God has sent Divine Educators to guide humanity. These Educators known as Manifestations of God—among them Abraham, Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Jesus Christ, Muhammad, and, in more recent times, the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh —  came to cultivate humanity’s spiritual, intellectual and moral capacities. The teachings of Bahá’u’lláh, the latest and Promised One of these Messengers, states that a just and peaceful world is now possible and His Writings outline a framework for the development of a global civilization.

Oneness of Humankind

“Be ye as the fingers of one hand, the members of one body. Thus counseleth you the Pen of Revelation…” 
– Bahá’u’lláh

The conviction that we belong to one human family is at the heart of the Baháí Faith. As humanity undergoes a transitional stage from infancy into collective maturity, the ruinous prejudices and traditions of the past are slowly being eroded away in light of new fundamental truths about the nature and purpose of human beings, which serves to guide the construction of new social structures and essential relationships that would ensure the spiritual and material well-being of everyone. The unification of the human race is the hallmark that humanity is approaching age of maturity.

What Bahá’ís do: Responding to the call of Bahá’u’lláh

“The fundamental purpose animating the Faith of God and His Religion is to safeguard the interests and promote the unity of the human race, and to foster the spirit of love and fellowship amongst men.”
– Bahá’u’lláh

The Revelation of God has an effect on the whole world.  The Word of God has a potency to motivate and change the human soul. Humanity has to learn to understand Its use – for the transformation of individuals, community and society.  The change called for by Bahá’u’lláh, calls for a reconceptualization, a rethinking of relationships such that they embody the principle of the oneness of mankind.  Throughout Singapore, in a mode characterized by a humble posture of learning, Bahá’ís engage in an educational process whose purpose is to assist individuals to deepen their understanding of Bahá’u’lláh teachings, so as to gain the spiritual insights and practical skills they need to contribute to the betterment society.  All are welcomed to participate in this educational process, through a number of interconnected activities, to create a new pattern of how society can be.

Who are the Bahá’ís?

“So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth.”
– Bahá’u’lláh

Bahá’u’lláh’s vision of unity resonates with the hearts of people and empowers individuals and communities, whether Baháís or not, to see themselves as active agents of change in contributing collectively to the betterment of society.

Animated by the principle of the oneness of humankind, Baháís engage in efforts to ensure the well-being of all, taking great care to avoid the pitfalls of exclusivity. All are welcome to be part of the community building process taking place and to walk together on this path of service to humanity.   

The Baháí Faith is established in nearly every nation, with representatives from about 2,100 ethnic groups, indigenous tribes, and races, which cuts across social and economic backgrounds. The Baháí community’s distinctive unity results from a unique system of institutions, which guide the community through freely elected governing councils at the local, national and international levels.
