Tell me more about Baha'i

Re: Tell me more about B'Hai

Good point Postmaster...I moved it so that it will come to the attention of our Baha'i members more easily.

Re: Tell me more about B'Hai

I am new here and I am just trying to learn as much as I can about some religions. Tell me about B'Hai...

Hello Ms. Amy and welcome to Baha'i Forum here at CR!

The sites posted by Postmaster are pretty good ones. The official site for Baha'i Faith is at

Basically the watchword for Baha'is is the concept of unity and what we call the three oneness: Oneness of God, Oneness of humanity and Oneness of the world's great religions and that they have a common Divine Origin.

Re: Tell me more about B'Hai

Hi, Amy, and welcome to the neighborhood! :)

Please feel free to ask any questions you may have: They'll be most welcome! :)

And for starters, the correct spelling is Baha'i. If it'll help, "baha" means "glory" and the suffix forms the adjective, so that "Baha'i" literally means "of Glory."

The pronunciation is "ba-HIGH." (Actually, it's really "ba-HIGH-ee," but we lazy Americans tend to take the easy way out and just use ba-HIGH instead.)
