Birth of the Báb

6 November


The Báb was the forerunner of Bahá’u’lláh, prophet founder of the Bahá’í Faith.  He was born in Shiraz on this day in 1819.

November 2019 marked the 200th anniversary of the Báb’s birth when Bahá’í communities all over the world marked this special occasion.

Bahá’ís often organise celebrations in their local communities to observe this and the following special day. They are sometimes referred to as the ‘twin Holy Days’.

Ideas for ways to explore the life of the Báb with KS2 and KS3 can be found on our Special Dates page.
