More
What does the Qur'an say about the Bible - the Jewish and Christian Scriptures? Some Muslims claim these Texts have been corrupted. We look at the Qur'an and the Bahá’í Writings and see the validity of the Bible confirmed. We find that, when the Qur'an speaks of "corruption of the Texts" this refers to corruption of the meaning through interpretation. The meaning has been warped and twisted. On a related note, the same passages show Muslims cannot judge non-Muslims according to Islamic...

Why Bahá'ís Pray Facing Baha'u'llah: Iblis, Qiblih, and Anthropomorphism

7/5/2018
More
In Islam it is categorically forbidden to pray to anything or anyone other than Almighty God. Everyday, when Bahá'ís performing their "Obligatory Prayer" or "Salát" or "Namáz", they face and prostrate towards Baha'u'llah's resting place and Shrine in Bahji, Israel. And technically it isn't to the Shrine as much as it is to Baha'u'llah Himself, because during the lifetime of Baha'u'llah, Bahá'ís turned to wherever He was residing, throughout His exiles. This, on the surface, seems to...

35 Most Common Objections to the Bahá'í Faith

5/28/2018
More
Baha’u’llah claims His Faith is the fulfillment of the long-awaited expectations of all the great religions, when all humanity will be united in “one universal cause, one common faith.” When all the races and people of the world will work together toward a single world order, where war will cease in a universal brotherhood.
