    What's the Point of Learning the Lives of the Prophets?

    Greetings all - I was having a meetup with my interfaith group, when a thought popped into my head. I find I am very interested in the lives of the Manifestations of God, and I always love to hear stories from their lives. But then I thought to myself, "Why? How does this bring me closer to...

    Why did the prophets have beards and wear imamas

    Beards and imamas seem to be worn by the previous 3 prophets. The bab Bahaullah and prophet Muhammad and most of their followers dressed with a beard and turbans (imamas) why did they dress this way? Prophet Muhammad has said lots of positive things about beards and imamas

    On Greater and Lesser Prophets and the Modern Era

    In the Kitab-i-Aqdas, Baha'u'llah clearly states that should anyone lay claim to a revelation direct from God in the next 850 years or so, he is assuredly a lying impostor. I have taken this to mean that there shall not be another Manifestation during that duration of time. What about...

    Can prophets be wrong?

    I would love to have your opinion on this. As far as I have examined this with honesty, I say they can. But I think we should also distinguish, within the concept of "prophet", the mirror (using the wonderful metaphor of Baha'u'llah) from the Light being reflected by the mirror. As a mirror...

    On the Subject of Lesser Prophets

    Hello, friends :) I thought of a question that I am curious about. Please correct me if I am wrong, but the next manifestation is not to come until 1000 years have passed. So the next manifestation is not within our lifetimes, unless some truly horrible crisis causes this to be changed (which...

    Are all biblical prophets considered Manifestations of God?

    I was wondering that all the prophets mentioned in the Old Testament are Manifestations of God. I know that major ones such as Adam, Abraham and Moses have been mentioned in Bahá'í writings, but are all of the prophets mentioned considered manifestations? And could that include prophetesses such...

    Recognition of True Prophets

    This is a general discussion, regarding recognition of true prophets. Anyone who claims to be a Manifestation of God, or a Prophet who has a Revelation from God, in my opinion, falls under one of the 3 and Only 3 Cathegories: 1) Either he is a Liar, an imposter and deceitful. Is it possible...

    The seal of the prophets

    Muhammad is not the father of any man among you, but he is the Apostle of God, and the seal of the prophets: and God knoweth all things. (Surih XXXIII, "The Confederates", v. 40) [33:40] According to the Qur'an, and as reaffirmed in the Writings of Baha'u'llah, Muhammad was both a Prophet and...

    Seal of Prophets: Muhammad

    Know then that the paradise that appeareth in the day of God surpasseth every other paradise and excelleth the realities of Heaven. For when God—blessed and glorified is He—sealed the station of prophethood in the person of Him Who was His Friend, His Chosen One, and His Treasure...

    'Seal of the Prophets'.

    Have a question: If Muhummad was the Seal of the Prophets, and the Prophetic Cycle has ended, why do Baha'is sometimes still refer to Baha'u'llah as a Prophet or the Prophet-founder? - unless I'm mistaken. Pls forgive my need for learning in this matter. I have met a couple of people lately...

    Will there be Lesser Prophets after Baha'u'llah but before the next Manifestation?

    Hey :wink According to the Baha'i Faith, after the coming of Moses and the Jewish Law (or 'Dispensation') Baha'is hold that a series of Lesser Prophets - who are often known as the 'Hebrew Prophets' of the Bible of which Isaiah, Jeremiah and others are notable - came on the scene to I suppose...
