The Báb and Bahá’u’lláh are the Twin Manifestations of the Bahá’í Faith. They were born in Persia in 1819 and 1817 respectively. The Báb was the forerunner to Bahá’u’lláh, declaring in 1844, when people all around the world were expectant of new teachings from God, that He had been given a Message to deliver to mankind. ‘Báb’ means ‘Gate’; the Báb was the Gate to a new Message from God for all mankind. He foretold the coming of the ‘Promised One’, Bahá’u’lláh.
