Bahá,ís throughout Scotland are joining the millions of Bahá’ís world wide who

will be celebrating the 200th anniversary of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh, founder of 

the Bahá’í Faith on the 20th and 21st of October 2017.  

Bahá’u’lláh was born in Tehran in 1817.  Two centuries later, the day of His

birth is celebrated around the world alongside the birth of the forerunner of 

His Revelation, the Báb, born in 1819 on the day before the birth of Bahá’u’lláh

according to the calendar used in Persia.  

These Twin Holy Birthdays are celebrated by Bahá’ís and their friends as one

annual festival where the closely interwoven lives and missions of these two 

Divine Luminaries are remembered together.
