About the Baha’is

Bahá’ís believe in the Teachings of Bahá’u’lláh and strive to live their lives by these principles of equality, justice and love for all of humanity.

Bahá’u’lláh’s vision for humanity is sweeping in its scope and calls for no less than the unification of the entire human race:

“This is the Day in which God’s most excellent favors have been poured out upon men, the Day in which His most mighty grace hath been infused into all created things. It is incumbent upon all the peoples of the world to reconcile their differences, and, with perfect unity and peace, abide beneath the shadow of the Tree of His care and loving-kindness.”

It is this vision that has captured the imagination and loyalty of millions of people around the world – from virtually every race, culture, class and nation. It is a vision of hope, of peace, and of confidence in the future of mankind. Bahá’u’lláh’s call is challenging indeed, for He claims to be none other than the Messenger of God to the age of human maturity, the fulfillment of the promises made in earlier religions. His purpose is to regenerate the spiritual fortunes of mankind.

The Bahá’í Community of Belfast
The members of the community live and work in all parts of the city and represent a wide range of backgrounds, ages, cultures, interests and talents.

The community meets every 19 days (Nineteen Day Feast) to have a devotional (to pray, read the writings of Baha’u’llah, play music, sing), followed by consultation and then a social part.

The Bahá’í Community also comes together to celebrate the Bahá’í Holy days (9 throughout the year).

A variety of activities occur regularly in Belfast which the Bahá’í community supports, activities such as devotional meetings, study circles and children’s classes.

The first Local Spiritual Assembly of Belfast, the local governing body of the Bahá’ís of Belfast, was formed in 1950, and celebrated its fiftieth anniversary at the Belfast Castle in 2000. You can learn more about Bahá’í Spiritual Assemblies by visiting http://news.bahai.org/media-information/administration.

There is a Bahá’í Society at Queen’s University of Belfast, as well as a Belfast branch of the Association of Bahá’í Women.
