The second most widespread religion after Christianity, the Baha’i Faith is enjoying rapid expansion. In this authoritative guide, Moojan Momen offers a concise yet comprehensive biography of its founder and prophet, Baha'u'llah.
From his early life in Iran as son of a senior civil servant to his death in exile near Akka, in what is now Israel, this is a carefully constructed account of the eventful life of this influential nineteenth-century religious figure. Drawing on a wide range of primary and secondary sources, some of which have never been used before, Momen offers a comprehensive survey of Baha’u’llah’s life, works, and teachings, and examines:
- His emergence as a leading figure in the much persecuted Babi movement.
- His successive forced exiles and the vitriolic opposition he faced throughout his life.
- His pioneering teachings on the equality of men and women, the protection of human rights, and the necessity and means for uniting our planet.
- His many profound books and letters.
Complete with a helpful guide to sources and references, this is a perfect book for anyone interested in knowing more about the founder of the youngest world religion.Author: Moojan Momen
