An Introduction to the Baha’i Covenant – Series

‘An Introduction to the Baha’i Covenant’ is a timely and historical overview written by various Baha’i Authors in a series of 27 segments.  Beginning this journey with Shaykh Ahmad and Siyyid Kazim, these segments span the life of the Bab, Baha’u’llah, Abdu’l-Baha, Shoghi Effendi, the Universal House of Justice and the historically unique and vital role that The Greatest Holy Leaf, Bahiyyih Khanum, daughter of Baha’u’llah, played after the passing of her brother, Abdu’l-Baha.  To understand the Covenant of Baha’u’llah, one must also understand what it is not and so this series also highlights those that opposed the Covenant.  We invite you to download the PDF versions of each segment for individual and community deepening.
