Baha’i community of Ajax extend a warm invitation to you and your family to join us in celebration of an occasion which is unique and precious in the history of humanity. Their Birthdays are on two consecutive days – two years apart. Bahá’u’lláh was born in 1817 and The Báb was born in 1819. 2019 will mark the Bicentenary of the Birth of The Báb.
This year the Twin Holy Birthdays of the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh will be celebrated in one evening on Nov 9, 2018
“Let your vision be world embracing…” — Bahá’u’lláh
Throughout history, God has sent to humanity a series of divine Educators—known as Manifestations of God—whose teachings have provided the basis for the advancement of civilization. These Manifestations have included Abraham, Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad. Bahá’u’lláh, the latest of these Messengers, explained that the religions of the world come from the same Source and are in essence successive chapters of one religion from God.
The Bahá’í Faith began with the mission entrusted by God to two Divine Messengers—the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh. Today, the distinctive unity of the Faith They founded stems from explicit instructions given by Bahá’u’lláh that have assured the continuity of guidance following His passing. This line of succession, referred to as the Covenant, went from Bahá’u’lláh to His Son ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, and then from ‘Abdu’l-Bahá to His grandson, Shoghi Effendi, and the Universal House of Justice, ordained by Bahá’u’lláh. A Bahá’í accepts the divine authority of the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh and of these appointed successors.
Bahá’ís believe the crucial need facing humanity is to find a unifying vision of the future of society and of the nature and purpose of life. Such a vision unfolds in the writings of Bahá’u’lláh.
We would love to celebrate this wonderful occasion with as many of our friends and neighbors in our community. Kindly drop us a line if you plan to join us .
