Hi! I’m new here and mostly just joined to ask this question as there’s no Bahai’s around and Certainly no Bayanis. I’ve been delving deep into baha’i and Babi scriptures and I was wondering why Baha’u’llah is chosen over Subh I azali? Why was Baha’u’llah accepted as Him who will be made Manifest, other than him declaring himself to be Him who will be made Manifest? Why isn’t there an english translation of the Persian&Arabic Bayan? I’ve been reading it in french, but the excerpts I can get in english have made my life a bit easier. It seems like Baha’is don’t put much importance on the Báb anymore, why is that? I have heard conflicting claims that the Báb made either Azali or Baha’u’llah his successor, which was it? Have any of you read “Selections from the Writings of the Báb” translated by Shoghi Effendi? I’ve been reading it and have been really enjoying it. I don’t want to come off like I haven’t read anything from Baha’u’llah either, i’ve read The Hidden Words, The Seven Valleys and The Four Valleys, most of the Kitab Iqan (still reading it), and other tablets by Baha’u’llah. His work is amazing and I really do appreciate his words, but what makes Baha’u’llah a more valid successor than Subh I Azali?
