About some of the central figures of the Bahá’í Faith

Bahá’u’lláh (1817-1892) is the Founder of the Bahá’í Faith and is believed by Bahá’ís to be a Divine Messenger or Manifestation of God.

Bahá’u’lláh was preceded by his Herald, the Báb (meaning ‘the Gate’) who lived from 1819 to 1850.

‘Abdu’l-Bahá (meaning ‘the Servant of Bahá’) was the eldest Son of Bahá’u’lláh, and Head of the Bahá’í Faith after His passing.
