In the early years of the 20th century, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá—the eldest Son of Bahá’u’lláh—was the Bahá’í Faith’s leading exponent, renowned as a champion of social justice and an ambassador for international peace. Abdu’l-Bahá was the last of three central figures of the Faith, along with Bahá’u’lláh and the Báb. His writings and authenticated talks are regarded as a source of Bahá’í sacred literature. He was designated the authorized interpreter of Bahá’u’lláh’s teachings. He traveled extensively in Egypt, Europe and North America before World War I expounding the teachings of His Father before vast audiences in churches, synagogues and universities. He was knighted by the British Mandate for his help in averting famine following the First World War. In 1921 He passed away and is buried on Mount Carmel in Haifa, Israel.

“To be a Baha’i simply means to love all the world; to love humanity and try to serve it; to work for universal peace and universal brotherhood.”

“If you desire with all your heart, friendship with every race on earth, your thought, spiritual and positive, will spread; it will become the desire of others, growing stronger and stronger, until it reaches the minds of all men.”
