Declaration of the Báb

24 May @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

This Holy Day marks the event that saw the start of the Bábí and subsequently the Bahá’í era.

On this day in 1844, at the age of twenty-five, the Báb made an extraordinary announcement:

Firstly, he said clearly that he had brought a new religion.

Secondly, he declared that the purpose of his religion was to prepare humanity for the imminent appearance of another messenger from God who would usher in the age of peace and justice promised in all the worlds’ religions.

The Báb said of this promised messenger:

“From the beginning that hath no beginning all men have bowed in adoration before Him Whom God shall make manifest and will continue to do so until the end that hath no end.”

Bahá’ís observe this day by taking the day off from work and school, and meeting with friends and family to celebrate the dawn of the new age.
