Who is The Báb?

In the middle of the 19th century—one of the most turbulent periods in the world’s history—a young merchant announced that He was the bearer of a message destined to transform the life of humanity. At a time when His country, Persia, was undergoing widespread moral breakdown, His message aroused excitement and hope among all classes, rapidly attracting thousands of followers. He took the name “The Báb”, meaning “the Gate".

With His call for spiritual and moral reformation, and His attention to improving the position of women and the lot of the poor, the Báb’s prescription for spiritual renewal was revolutionary. His message captured the hearts of many which threatened the established religious authorities. Their ruthless and cruel attempts to stamp out this fledgling movement culminated in the brutal Martyrdom of the Báb after just 6 years of ministry.

6 Years that Changed the World reveals the tragedy and triumphs of His brief period of ministry in which the Báb founded a distinct, independent religion and fulfilled His mission to prepare the way for the coming of a Manifestation of God Who would usher in the age of peace and justice promised in all the world’s religions: Bahá’u’lláh (Founder of the Bahá’í Faith)
