Bahai Faith is BANNED in Most Countries


During the 19th century, Britain had firm control over India; at the same time Russia had been expanding south and east into Central Asia toward India, and a rivalry started between Britain and Russia over territorial and political control in Central Asia. The piece of land that was located between India and Russian holdings, included Persia, was a highly coveted region, where both Russia and Britain worked to gain influence.

Briefly, the situation was –

Support of the United Kingdom during the Constitutional Revolution,

Anglo-Russian convention which solidified boundaries that identified control between Britain and Russia in Persia, Afghanistan, and Tibet,

The occupation of Iranian territory during the First World War by the UK, Russia and the Ottoman Empire, as well as the coup d’état of 1921 which was backed by the British.

In such circumstances the Russian Government, to gain control over central Asia – especially Iran created a false Religion called as Bahaism.

The Bahá’í Faith and the Bahá’ís have had ties to foreign powers, and were agents of Russian imperialism, British colonialism, American expansionism and International Zionism.

Left to right : Leroy loas, Ruhiyyih Khanum, President of Zionist State Ben Zvi, Mrs. Ben Zvi, Amelia Collins, Ali Akbar Furutan, Abul Qasim Faizi and Israeli Government Officials.

Bahá’í teachings promote to be loyal to one’s government and not be involved in politics but the fact is exactly contrary to what is preached. Baha’is are always involved in politics and seen with political leaders. They are known to have been involved in espionage activities in each and every country. This is the reason why they are banned in most of the countries. These countries found the followers of Bahá’í Faith, having dual loyalty and of being involved with foreign or hostile powers.

Some of these countries are:


The late PRESIDENT JAMAL ABDUL NASSER BANNED THE BAHA’I FAITH IN EGYPT IN 1960. His government found clear relationship between Baha’i Faith and Zionism. The President decree was as under:

Clause l: All Bahá’í Assemblies and Centers existing in the two regions of the Republic are hereby dissolved, and their activities suspended. Individuals, bodies and institutions are forbidden to engage in any activity, as was conducted by these Assemblies and Centers. The Minister of the Interior will issue the necessary instructions to bring to an end the activities of these Assemblies and Centers.

Clause 2: The properties of the Bahá’í Assemblies and Centers shall be taken over by officials appointed by the Minister of the interior. The Minister shall designate a guardian to be in custody of the funds, documents and papers owned by the said Assemblies

Clause 3: Any infringement of this law is an offence deserving imprisonment of a minimum of Six months, and/or a fine from 100 to 1000 Egyptian pounds.

Clause 4: This Decree shall be published in the Official Gazette, and will be enforced from the Date of publication.


The President of Indonesia in 1960 dissolved Bahai Adminstration and made every Baha’i activity illegal Recently in 2009 Bahá’ís were arrested in Indonesia on Criminal Charges of violating “The Law of Child Protection”. The Bahá’ís were prosecuted under the Law of Child Protection 23-2002 trying to convert children of other faith as young as 9 to 10 years.


President Saddam Hussain not only dissolved Baha’i organization in Iraq but issued an order that any Baha’i activity will be met with death sentence. Following the Baathist coup in 1963, the then leaders drastically limited the freedoms previously guaranteed to the Iraqi citizens. The new regime began with attempts to prevent Baha’i activity in Iraq in 1967. This culminated in the decision of the Directorate of Civil Status No. 358 24 / 7 / 1975 that stopped registration of Baha’is in the records of civil status.

In May 1970, the Iraqi Government banned all Baha’i Institutions and Baha’i activities. In mid December 1973, an incident created a stir which engulfed the life of many Baha’is. In a government owned school, many Baha’i girls were secretly propagating the Baha’i Faith to other classmates. The girls reported the matter to the authorities that propagation of an Israeli based Faith is going on in the campus. The matter was reported to the Ministry of education. He ordered the investigation on the following day. The investigation revealed a network of Israeli based organization is behind it. The head Master was dismissed and the girl was arrested together with her three Baha’i classmates Almost fifty people were arrested in the course of next few months. A military court sentenced fourteen of them to life imprisonment, three to fifteen years and nine to ten years in jail. Further severe action was taken against suspected members of this organization involved in conversion and espionage.


The former USSR called Baha’is as Enemy of State. Surprising indeed from a country which nurtured the Faith initially.

In 1937, “NKVD” (People’s Commissariat of Internal Affairs) outlawed about 40 Bahá’í communities existing at that time in USSR. From the 13th of October, all the members of the Bahá’í Spiritual Assembly of Baku and dozens of community members were arrested. All of them were punished for their illegal and anti State activities

The chairman of the Spiritual Assembly, Faraj Jaffargulu Gasimov (the nephew of the first Bahá’í from Salyan, Hadim Javad) and his wife, Fizza Muradova were imprisoned. The “NKVD” people called him “national enemy”. Many were imprisoned and a few Baha’is were exiled to Siberia.

In October 1938 the building of the Bahá’í center was confiscated in Baku. Now there is a kindergarten in this building.

In November 1982, KGB started arresting the Bahá’ís. S.D. Asadova, I.F. Gasimov and I.G. Ayyubov were arrested. All their meetings were declared illegal and every Baha’i activity forbidden. Even the greetings on the phone “Allah’u’Abha” were forbidden.


The UAR Government called Baha’is as “state within the state”.


In 1937 Heinrich Himmler signed an order disbanding the Bahá’í institutions in Germany. In 1939 and in 1942 there were sweeping arrests of former members of the National Spiritual Assembly of Baha’is of Germany. In May 1944 there was a public trial in Darmstadt. The Bahá’ís were heavily fined and it’s institutions continued to be disbanded.

Following the fall of Nazi Germany, and with American and British control of Germany, an American Bahá’í, John C. Eichenauer (a medic of the 100th Infantry division then at Geislingen) started searching for the Bahá’í community in Stuttgart. He drove through Stuttgart looking and asking for Bahá’ís and was able to find an individual. The next day saw the first meeting of Bahá’ís since their disbandment in 1937.

Two other American Bahá’ís, Bruce Davison and Henry Jarvis, in Frankfurt and Heidelberg respectively, also connected with the Bahá’í community in Germany. At the beginning of the partition of Germany there were about 150 German Bahá’ís in the American section and they became registered with the American authorities. The National Spiritual Assembly was re-elected in 1946. Needless to say, US was involved in establishment of Bahaism in post-war Germany. John C. Eichenauer, Bruce Davison and Henry Jarvis were established US secret agents.


The Iranian Authorities always believed that Baha’is are the face of Israel in Iran. It is a well known fact that the Bahai Administration has issued statements for the Baha’is of Iran to go and teach the Iranians and face whatsoever consequences came. One should ask the Baha’is “where is the obedience to government” principle of the religion in this case?

Bahá’ís held many prominent positions in Iran during the Shah regime. In the government of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, half of the Shah’s cabinet were Bahá’ís.

Shah’s personal physician, Abd al-Karim Ayadi was a Baha’i. Amongst other Bahá’í who held position in the Shah regime was Asadullah Sanii. The then Minister of Defence, Parviz Sabeti, was raised in a Bahá’í family. The Prime Minister Amir-Abbas Hoveida was a Bahá’í. The Baha’is agree that Hoveida’s father was a Baha’i but say that Hoveida himself was not religious. Other Bahá’ís included Mahnaz Afkhami, who was the Minister for Women’s Affairs and the daughter of a Bahá’í mother and Farrokhroo Parsa, another cabinet member .


More recently the Baha’is are being under strict surveillance in CIS countries like AZERBAIJAN, UZBEKISTAN, TAJAKISTAN etc. In fact Baha’is are being deported from Uzbekistan for secretly converting children under 15 years.



The 2009 Religion Law, passed under former President Kurmanbek Bakiev was aimed at curtailing the Baha’i Activities. It stated “If a community has “administrative centres located beyond Kyrgyzstan or having foreign citizens in its administrative body” it is classified as a “mission”. This community must re-register every year and does not have legal status. It’s registration can be refused if it posses “a threat to the state and social security, the inter-ethnic and ecumenical concord, health and morality of the population, or in other cases anticipated by legislation.”


The Baha’i Faith is banned in Yemen since 2008. Many Baha’is were deported because of their conversion activities. Last year in Yemen four Baha’is were arrested by the Interior ministry for secretly propagating their religion. The three Baha’is of Iranian origin, Zia’u’llah Pourahmari, Keyvan Qadari, and Behrooz Rohani, were arrested in Sana’a, on the night of June 20, 2008. A fourth Baha’i, Sayfi Ibrahim Sayfi, was also arrested around the same time and was deported to Iraq.

According to the source close to the group, the men were arrested and taken to the national security headquarters’ prison where they spent 40 days – most of the time in isolated cells – before being sent to Sana’a General Investigation Department.

Countries like SAUDI ARABIA, OMAN, JORDAN, MOROCCO also see Baha’is as hands of Zionists.

The Bahá’í Faith was banned in the 1970s in several countries like:

BURUND in 1974;

MALI in 1976;

UGANDA in 1977;

CONGO in 1978;

NIGER in 1978.


The world’s largest democracy India with all its secular credentials has come out with “Anti conversion law” in its 11 states so as to prevent this very secret sect from deceptive propagation. The law states:

Prohibition of forcible or deceptive conversion

No person shall convert or attempt to convert, either directly or otherwise, any person from one religious faith to any other religious faith by the use of force or by inducement or by any FRAUDULENT means nor shall any person abet any such conversion.

Converting Hindus in India just outside a Hindu Temple

Punishment for contravention of the provisions of Section 3

Any person contravening the provisions contained in section 3 shall, without prejudice to any civil liability, be punishable with Imprisonment to the extent of two years and fine up to ten thousand rupees.

According to a report published in India’s leading Newspaper, The Hindustan Times in July 2006, as per a complaint filed in city court – the members of National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of India were accused by their colleagues of using impersonations and forgery to clandestinely penetrate into prohibited defense establishment of the country and get hold of classified documents and supplied them to Israeli and Iranian spying agencies.


The Bahá’í Faith is not recognized in the People’s Republic of China and North Korea and so there is no organized Bahá’í activity.


Even in countries such as Japan and South Korea, where there is religious freedom, the position of the Bahá’í Faith resembles that of Western Europe where Baha’is are only on paper.


In Morocco in 1962-1963, 15 Bahá’ís were arrested for their religious convictions; three were given death sentences and several others years of prison term at hard labor. There were months of diplomatic efforts which bore no results.

On March 31, 1963 during a visit to the United States and the United Nations, King Hasan of Morocco was interviewed on television. He addressed the audience saying that “Though the Bahá’í Faith was against good order and morals” that he would still pardon the death sentences. It is evident that he succumbed to the US pressure.

Arrest of Baha’is occurred again in 1984, due to their secret teaching activities and sending confidential reports to Israel. Bahá’ís have more recently been denied passports and can practice their religion only in private.


Last but not the least… strange indeed – Baha’is are not supposed to teach in Israel. There is a total ban. The matter is very mysterious that although Israel supports Baha’is in all aspects, yet why the State of Israel does not permit the Baha’is to propagate the Bahai Faith.

Baha'is are not allowed to teach in Israel for "unknown reasons"

Quote : Whenever an Israeli citizen living in the West, irrespective of his background and religious affiliation, declares his belief and interest in becoming a member of the Bahá’í community ,he should be informed that the Faith is not taught in Israel and that there is no Bahá’í community there apart from those who are associated with the Bahá’í World Center. He cannot be accepted into the Bahá’í community if he is planning to return to Israel to reside there. If he plans to continue to reside outside Israel, his enrollment can be accepted, but he will then be subject to the same restrictions about travel to Israel as any other Bahá’í, in that he could do so only with the express permission of the Universal House of Justice.In any event, the Universal House of Justice should be informed of any such declaration.

(Letter from the Universal House of Justice, dated October 20, 1994, to several National Spiritual Assemblies)

This is why, should Jews wish to become Bahá’í even now, they need to leave Israel first.

  1. Ali Hussayni says:

    Is the Baha’i Faith is so wicked and false, then why do you expend so much energy in trying to fight it? If it is as dubious and false as you and other Muslims who spend all of their time to oppose and attack it claim, then why worry about it?! Won’t it just disappear? The fact that you go to so much trouble to create all these websites and post this rubbish shows that you yourself know that it is the Truth and therefore you are deathly scared that it will grow.

    “And say: ‘The truth has come, and falsehood has vanished away; surely falsehood is ever certain to vanish.'” – The Holy Qur’an

  2. R says:

    Although I am neither Bahai’i nor Muslim, I can understand why such sites sprout up. On face value they may look like ‘fearful’ bloggers who are ‘battling’ against the Bahai’i faith, to which I agree is ridiculous if they have faith in their religion’s teachings of vanishing falsehoods (and there are a lot of these around for most religions) However I also can see how they may want to alleviate people from being blinded or misguided into a religion or faith which may be built on hypocrisy, and false foundations. It can’t be denied that there is a growing consensus amongst people about the true motivations and of the Bahai’i faith, and the ‘self-driven’ force of the faith’s ambitions, it’s members and the resentment and suspicion it creates within people’s communities because of it’s relentless ‘cloaked’ youth activities.
    This is the internet, where we have access to a multitude of opinions and it gives us the option of constructing our own opinion and curiosities about things. Wouldn’t you want your children, friends and family have the opportunity to read the 2 sides of the coin, even if one side may look ridiculous? In fact, it could be in the Bahai’i believer’s favour if they have so much faith in their prophecies, right? It was your self-driven consciousness and fear that motivated your reply wasn’t it?

  3. Aaron_MrBrinkleyHS_1967 says:

    The countries the writer lists as banning the Baha’i Faith is woefully out of date and ludicrously contrived. The writer doesn’t seem to understand the difference between the adverbs “Most” and “many”. Many countries on the list have thriving Baha’i communities. If certain political persuasions had their way, the blessed religion of Islam would be banned in their countries, given the recent behaviour of fanatical elements and their spiritual exhorters. Where is the harm in a Message that teaches that all the religions have their origins with God, that humankind is one, that he girls should have equal access to education and be allowed to be lawyers, octors, engineers, etc., and to eliminate all forms of prejudices? Verily, these are traits that Satan would not like to have taught in this Day and Age. Anyone against such teachings must be followers of “the evil whisperer who breathes in the breasts of men”. Hopefully, you are not such a person.

        Dear Aaron – I dont know what you are referring to by bringing this verse of the Quran. Please be more specific. it is tiresome to deal with Bahais who deal with conjecture – who quote one sentence as if they have made some profound discovery.

      The Bahai Faith talks about “lofty” ideas which it pays only lip service to. For each of the points which you have mentioned, Islam talks about the same thing. So why have another religion at all?

        Dear Imranshaykh,

        “I stand by the list of countries provided unless you can prove it wrong. I go by facts whereas you are speaking on the basis of conjecture.”

        Could you share the source of the “facts” (and surely the links you followed to verify their veracity) that led you to write the elements mentioned in your article?

        As a bahá’í, since our teachings encourage us to independently search for truth, you would really enlighten me in my path!


      • imranshaykh says:

        Dear Ivan, I am not at liberty for divulging the source of such information. Which is why I have made a clear claim of being happy to be proven wrong if Bahais can offer proof to the contrary. So far no Bahai individual or organisation has come forth with any response. On a personal side, I have spent a reasonable time within Bahai circles to know that the numbers which are proferred by Bahai are significantly fudged.

        As regards Independent Investigation of Truth, I request you to please visit my site – which offers proof along with claims of falsehood perpetrated by Bahais. It will be interesting to see how objectively you are able to absorb that information.

    • Truth Badger says:

      I regret to mention that Baha’i religion does not have its origins with God but with the Russia, Israel and other western countries…Don’t play us for a fool…Try fooling poor ignorant rural India the way why do you keep files on every Baha’i member and why do you need a member who no longer believes in bahaullah to recant his beliefs in writing…aren’t you an organization in that sense or More like a franchise…keeping a file on any new Baha’i is not a religion

  4. Elizabeth Forman says:

    Bahais are not allowed to proselytize in any country. We can only respond to the questions of others. We are not agents of Zionism because we do not become involved in politics other than to just vote. We may befriend politicians just to be friends and that is all. We only have problems in countries where freedom of religion is suppressed. We are targets of those who have an axe to grind and that is unfortunate.

    • imranshaykh says:

      Dear Elizabeth:

      You are woefully ignorant of practices of the Bahais if you claim that Bahais dont proselytize in any country. More than half of the countries in my radar have banned the Bahai Faith primarily because they proselytize the Faith there. Look up Indonesia, India, Uzbekistan etc…

      Warm regards

      • If you believe that India has banned the Baha’i Faith you have done no research at all. There is a well known Baha’i temple, the Lotus temple, in India that is a major tourist site and there is a large a thriving community there. Your article is so filled with lies and distortions you should be ashamed. Don’t you know that it is against Islamic law to lie?

      • imranshaykh says:

        Dear Lawrence:
        Thanks for your views.

        At no place have I mentioned in the article that Bahai Faith is banned in India. Yes, I made that comment in the comments section, but I will edit it out. The Bahai Faith is not banned in India. However in recent times, the Bahai Faith has been under severe stress in India over conversion cases.

        As regards Islam, yes it is a sin to lie. I stand by my facts unless proven wrong (which you have done now, I have accepted about India). I am not ashamed about what I have written. Yes, I am very dissapointed that Bahais take offence without being objective about it.

  5. Ahmad Mehmanparast says:

    The problem with Islam is that it is not a true religion. It is forced down your throat. If a moslem wants to convert to another religion or no religion, he can be killed. I am certain that even the moslems don’t believe their own nonsence. Better a civilized religion from England like Bahai than a barberic way of life from Muhammad. The garbage of Islam has no respect for anybody else but themselves. No one else even deserves to live. How unbelievably self absorbed. Islam is an insult to humanity.

    • imranshaykh says:

      Dear Ahmad:

      The Islam which you have outlined is not the Islam most Muslims follow. For them Islam is a religion, a code of life. While, it does not encourage violence in any form, it also does not compromise on its principles depending upon the vagaries of time. I think you hould take time out to read about Islam from Islam itself and not from biased western writers.

      True Islam leads one to the truth and guides man how to live his life in this world so that he will be successful in his eternal abode which is the hereafter.

      The Bahai Faith tries to appear like a religion, but is not. Just because they make some statements which sounds good to the West does not make them a religion. For a person who is seeking the truth of his existence, the Bahai Faith cannot answer any of his questions.

      • Carol says:

        Dear Imran,

        “For a person who is seeking the truth of his existence, the Bahai Faith cannot answer any of his questions.”

      Why are you named Ahmad..Ahmad is not a Baha’i name…you must be a run away black sheep with no moral compass…Well you can fornicate all you want and cheat on your wife and pay the penalty price of 9 Mithgals of Gold according to your so called most holy convenient and if you are poor, you have a get-out-jail-free card…how convenient..These are the laws laid down for you by the Israelis and the British not God.The only reason you subscribe to the bahai organization is it favorable on fornications and Adultery and other vices..Do you even read your man made laws….where is the deterrent effect..You must be one happy Baha’i all too eager to spy on host countries and please your master creators the Israelis and British…why don’t you come out of the closet and quit being a hypocrite…It stinks to high heaven.

      • Emitis says:

        Truth Badger, you obviously do not know much about the Baha’i Faith, One of our most revered prayers is the Tablet of Ahmad. However, Ahmad is likely not a Baha’i, just an observer who like his Holiness, Christ, looks at religions by the fruit they bear. The fruit of the Baha’i Faith is education for all, an independent journey towards God without Mullahs and a love for everyone, Aaron is also correct about the “facts” on ths site. For instance, the Baha’i Faith is recognized as an official religion in Indonesia.
        I also am proud of the fact that a murderous dictator like Saddam Hossein or Hitler would ban the truth and light of the Baha’i Faith. It is antithetical to what these dictators stand for and the hat has nothing to do with the ridiculous conspiracy theories about the Faith, who by all real historical accounts, was born through the sacrifice of thousands of Persians, would have originated in England.

      • imranshaykh says:

        Dear Emitis:

        I would encourage you to visit and visit the section on the Twelve principles to actually see what is the true meaning of terms like Independent Investigation of Truth, Unity of Religions etc.

        I hope you will read through the section in true Bahai spirit and evaluate them in the light of independent investigation of religion.


  6. jcrossing says:

    The ignorant, inaccurate, and false claims of this website about the Baha’i Faith is reprehensible and inexcusable scholarship. Most of your data is based upon sources whose sole purpose is to discredit and calumniate the Faith. Obviously, you have chosen to create your material from a similar frame of reference that is prejudiced and preconceived about the teachings of Baha’u’llah and the institutions that have been created to administer the faith. Disbelieving or hating something is every human’s right, but to misrepresent and spread falsehoods about something you hate is speaks loudly about the character of the person doing it rather than your topic. I’ve been a very active and involved Baha’i for over 40 years and have served on many institutions in different countries and have never seen one shred of evidence for the false claims and misinterpretations of reality stated at this website. I sincerely urge you to examine your topics, either the Baha’i Faith or any other topic, with a view to determining truth rather than to perpetuate a preconceived and set opinion. Please, take some time to go to the source and read Baha’u’llah’s teachings for yourself, using your own eyes and own ears, instead of depending upon other people’s prejudiced, misinformed, ignorant writing.

How about the one who burns down a house intentionally..he too must be’s in the original text…What kind of God reveals Copper transmuting to gold within 70years..well I for one read Bahaullah’s teaching and I am rather surprised at the inconsistencies,contradictions, prophecies that failed to materialize, unscientific revelations, and most of all Manifest Errors..if you missed these teachings of Bahaullah, I am flabbergasted..but if you looked the other way, we won’t

      • Aaron_of_Portsmouth says:

        Clearly, you are short on insight and are incapable of understanding metaphors which are replete in the Qur’an. The Christians and Jews use the same limited and myopic analysis of Islam—and you are simply lowering yourself to their standards by “apeing” their standards of analyses.

    Thank God and His Supreme Manifestation for our age that the Cnadian Government recognized the Baha’i Faith by an act of The Canadian Parliament in 1948. All governments should do the same and tis end all this nonsense. Enshalla.

  9. Aaron_of_Portsmouth says:

    The Baha’i Faith is banned in most Muslim countries, but the loss is incurred by those same countries.
    Instead of reciprocating the respect that countries like America, Canada, etc. extend to Islam, the Muslim countries, for some odd and perverse reason, seek to lower themselves by not extending that same courtesy to the Baha’is. I’m sure Muhammad(pbuh) does not approve of this negative and biased attitude that many Muslims feel obliged to project of themselves to the world. Why this infantile paranoia about The Baha’i Faith?

    Surah Al-Kaafirun(#109)

    Say, “O disbelievers,
    I do not worship what you worship.

    Nor are you worshippers of what I worship.
    Nor will I be a worshipper of what you worship.
    Nor will you be worshippers of what I worship.
    For you is your religion, and for me is my religion.”

    From this, we plainly see the openness that Muhammad had, even for the idolators.
    Strangely, the Muslims of today feel it beneath themselves to emulate His example—what a strange way to show respect for the Prophet!!!

      Did you know Canada, America, Australia and a lot of European countries welcome bahais to their country?! But on the other hand they are not too pleased with Muslims. So you need to stop worrying about us and worry about your own self. And stop giving ppl false information . Instead of talking crap about Baha’ism go read about it and read the actually Baha’i books, don’t listen to some uneducated Mullá and don’t make some shit up.

  12. Kyongmi says:

    I understand your desperate effort to try to rebuke and destroy the Baha’i Faith. But that won’t work, as the tumultuous early history of the Baha’i Faith is a living proof, as it is God’s plan for this age. How much persecutions have been inflicted upon Baha’is since 1844. Well over 20,000 Baha’is were killed and the persecution till goes on under all types of false crimes. I am a Baha’i from South Korea and had studied the Baha’i faith for a few years before I became a Baha’i, as the teaching emphasizes “independent search of truth” and I needed to check everything, every nook and cranny, to see if there is anything suspicious! The Faith sounded too good to be true! Well, the more I scrutinized its teachings, the more beauty and truth I beheld. I couldn’t deny the writings, and had to become a Baha’i. I am from the Buddhist background. There was no doubt Baha’u’llah was the return of the 5th Buddha, the universal Buddha that will bring all the people together in harmony and peace. It’s been 36 years since I became a Baha’I now, and wow, that was the best decision I had ever made. My life has been so enriched and I am a proud World Citizen, and my heart reaches out for everyone regardless of their religion, race, culture, gender… This is a living proof of what the Baha’I teachings did to me.

    By the way, South Korea and Japan both have very strong and firm, and legally established communities all over the countries. Very nice websites and Baha’i centers, too. So please stop talking falsehood and lies.

    Do you understand that so many Muslims tried to teach people that Muhammad was from God, but without much result? I, as a Buddhist, would have never accepted Muhammad myself, but Baha’u’llah taught me that Muhammad was from God and I accepted that. Baha’is are successfully teaching everyone that which Muslims couldn’t do as effectively and efficiently. Baha’is continue to teach people that Muhammad is God’s prophet! So what are you doing? Why don’t you learn to be the best Muslim you could be, and possess a pure, kindly, radiant heart with compassion, love, truthfulness, fairness and all other spiritual qualities that Muhammad taught you to have. We all have a life here on earth and we should not waste our precious life, doing things that are destructive and negative. Instead we should try to promote love and unity among all people. So, my brother, ponder upon this and be positive and constructive. That will make Muhammad much happier, my brother.
    And please don’t delete this from the posting, to be fair.

    Amen, Brother Kyongmi! My mother in law also embraced the Baha’i Faith and came from a Buddhist background. Like you, It was only through the teachings of Baha’u’llah that she was able to recognize Muhammad as the Messenger of God.

      Dear Emitis:

      The problem with the Bahai Faith is that it presents the Holy Prophet (pbuh) in a completely wrong light. Islam believes that the Holy Prophet (pbuh) was the final Prophet and Messenger from Allah. Bahais twist that. Then Islam believes that the book revealed upon Holy Prophet (pbuh) is the final revelation. Bahais contradict this.

      So while Bahais claim that they accept Mohammed (pbuh), they in reality reject him because they also reject all the teachings.

      I usually ask the Bahais to present one tradition from Holy Prophet (pbuh) which prophesied the coming of Baha’u’llah. Bahais are never able to do that.

    Truth Badger, you obviously do not know much about the Baha’i Faith, One of our most revered prayers is the Tablet of Ahmad. However, Ahmad is likely not a Baha’i, just an observer who like his Holiness, Christ, looks at religions by the fruit they bear. The fruit of the Baha’i Faith is education for all, an independent journey towards God without Mullahs and a love for everyone, Aaron is also correct about the “facts” on ths site. For instance, the Baha’i Faith is recognized as an official religion in Indonesia.
    I also am proud of the fact that a murderous dictator like Saddam Hossein or Hitler would ban the truth and light of the Baha’i Faith. It is antithetical to what these dictators stand for and the hat has nothing to do with the ridiculous conspiracy theories about the Faith, who by all real historical accounts, was born through the sacrifice of thousands of Persians, would have originated in England.
