    Baha Allah

    (d. 1892 )

    Glory of God. Title used by Mirza Husayn Ali Nuri , prophet-founder of the Bahai faith, who was an early adherent of the Bab movement, leading to his arrest and exile. He experienced divine visions during the period 1853 – 63 and announced his mission during the years 1863 – 68 through a series of letters to heads of state. Followers consider his works in Persian and Arabic divine revelation. He broke off from the Bab movement over a leadership dispute and claimed that Bab foretold him as future divine messenger. He called for world unity, the establishment of a world tribunal, adoption of a universal auxiliary language, and the belief that all religions come from the same God and teach the same essential truth with differences due to historical, linguistic, and social factors. He was condemned as a heretic in Iran and banished by the Ottomans to Acre, where he is buried.
