Holy Day Birth of the Báb

The Báb was the Prophet Martyr Herald of Bahá’u’lláh

“As to those who deny Him Who is the Sublime Gate of God, for them We have prepared, as justly decreed by God, a sore torment. And He, God, is the Mighty, the Wise.” from the Qayyúmu’l-Asmá’ by The Báb

The notion of “twin Manifestations of God” is a concept fundamental to Baháʼí belief, describing the relationship between the Báb and Baháʼu’lláh. Both are considered Manifestations of God in their own right, having each founded separate religions (Bábism and the Baháʼí Faith) and revealed their own holy scriptures. To Baháʼís, however, the missions of the Báb and Baháʼu’lláh are inextricably linked: The Báb’s mission was to prepare the way for the coming of Him whom God shall make manifest, who eventually appeared in the person of Baháʼu’lláh.
