Bahai

The Oxford Dictionary of Islam What is This? Covers the religious, political, and social spheres of global Islam in the modern world

    Bahai

    Follower of Iranian Baha Allah, Mirza Husayn Ali Nuri (d. 1892 ). Bahais believe in progressive revelation, with Muhammad as the last prophet, and a continual process of revelation and divine manifestations, based on the conviction that God never leaves humanity without guidance. Bahais believe in the oneness of God, humanity, and religion. They reject prejudice and superstition and believe in the harmony of science and religion, equality of men and women, universal education, social and economic justice, and a spiritual basis for society. The faith has about five million adherents worldwide; the largest community is in India. The movement is considered heretical by most Muslims.
