Celebrate with Us!

Every year, Bahá’ís all over the world celebrate two special occasions, the Births of Bahá’u’lláh (born 1817) and the Báb (born 1819), the two successive Prophets who are the central Figures in the Bahá’í Faith. The years, 2017 and 2019, are particularly special as each of these years marks a 200th year anniversary of the birth of one of these two revered Figures.

Who were these Two celebrated Figures?

The Báb, whose title means “the Gate,” was born Sayyid `Alí-Muhammad in 1819, in Shiraz, Iran. Though the Bab was a Manifestation or Prophet of God, and the Founder of a great religion, He also perceived Himself to be a forerunner of yet another Messenger Who would soon come after Him. Today, Baha’is recognize this latter Manifestation to be Bahá’u’lláh.

Bahá’u’lláh whose title means the “Glory of God,” was born Mírzá Husayn `Alí of Núr, Iran in 1817. In 1863, nineteen years after the beginning of the Bábi Faith, Bahá’u’lláh publicly declared His Message. He declared Himself as not only the One promised by the Báb, but one who had come to unify all of humanity.

This year, on Sunday, October 22, the Báhá’ís of North East Tarrant County will be holding the 200th year anniversary of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh, the first of two major celebrations for these two Figures (2019 will mark the 200th year anniversary of the Birth of the Bab). These Holy Days mark the happiest and most festive time for Bahá’is, and the Baha’i community is delighted to invite our friends, neighbors and acquaintances to come and partake of these celebrations!
