On October 20 every year, Bahá’ís around the world celebrate the birth of the Báb. The Báb was born in 1819 in Shiraz, Iran and from an early age He showed signs of greatness. At age 25 He announced that He was the Promised One whose coming had been long awaited. According to the Báb, His mission had two main purposes; the first was to prepare the world for the coming of Bahá’u’lláh, the Founder of the Bahá’í Faith, and the second was the announcement of the Dawn of a new Age, the Promised Day of God. You can find out more about the Báb here, or come and join us tomorrow!
