The Baha’i Faith
The Baha’i Faith is a worldwide religion based on the teachings of Baha’u’llah (1817-1892).
Baha’u’llah is the most recent in the series of Divine Messengers who founded the world religions as part of the progressive revelation of God’s guidance to humanity.
A central theme of the Baha’i Faith is that humanity is one family bound together in a common destiny: a global society.
Recognition of the oneness of humanity is the key feature of this age, an age in which humankind is approaching its collective maturity.
People of goodwill need to come together to collaborate in building a just and peaceful global society in which all individuals can fulfil their potential.
Key principles of the Baha’i Faith:
- equality of women and men
- harmony of science and religion
- abolition of extremes of poverty and wealth
- elimination of all forms of prejudice
- equal standard of human rights for all people
The Baha’i Faith has been present in Australia since 1920. There are Baha’is across all regions of Australia. There are more than five million Baha’is spread worldwide and in every country.
