Birth of Bahá’u’lláh 18-19 October

The Birth of Baháʼu’lláh is one of nine holy days in the Bahá’i calendar that is celebrated by Bahá’is and during which work is suspended. The holy day celebrates the birth of Bahá’u’lláh the founder of the Baháʼí Faith.

Bahá’u’lláh was born on 12 November 1817 in Tehran, Iran and this holy day was instituted in the Kitab-i-Aqdas, his book of laws, where Baháʼu’lláh first refers to four great festivals: the Festival of Ridván, the Declaration of the Báb, the birth of the Báb – who is considered to be a manifestation of God, and who foretold the coming of Baháʼu’lláh – and the birth of Baháʼu’lláh.
