Persia, by Mirza Husayn-'Ali (1817-1892), known as Baha'u'llah, the Glory of God. Comprises members of the Baha'i Faith, an independent world religion, The Baha'i Faith is intimately linked with the Babi Faith, founded in 1844 by Mirza 'Ali-Muhammad (1819-1850), known as the Bab, who proclaimed the imminent approach of the prophet (Messenger of God) foretold by all world religions: in 1863, Baha'u'llah declared that he was this prophet. After successive banishments, he arrived in the Holy Land, where he passed away. He appointed his eldest son, 'Abdu'l-Baha (1844-1921), to succeed him in leading the Baha'i Community and in interpreting the Baha'i Writings. 'Abdu'l-Baha in turn appointed his eldest grandson, Shoghi Effendi (1896-1957), as his successor, Guardian of the Cause, and authorized interpreter of the Baha'i teachings.
