Dear Baha'i/Seeker of Truth,
We are the Unitarian Baha'is, the followers of Muhammad Ali Effendi, the second son of Baha'u'llah The Aghsan (blood descendants of Baha'u'llah) are ALL Unitarian Baha'is! Every last single one.
Not all the Baha'is followed Abbas Effendi ('Abdu'l-Baha) after the death of Baha'u'llah. In fact, of all the blood relatives of Baha'u'llah (the Aghsan), only the daughters of 'Abdu'l-Baha followed him. Everyone else followed the second son of Baha'u'llah: Muhammad Ali Effendi.
'Abdu'l-Baha made many changes in the Baha'i Revelation, that is why all the Aghsan opposed him; because only a Manifestation of God could make such changes in doctrine and practice. 'Abdu'l-Baha claimed some "unique station" between Prophet and human being that nobody ever had before (nor since). There is nothing in the Bible, Qu'ran, nor the Writings of Baha'u'llah, to justify such a "unique station".
The Universal House of Justice and the Office of the Secretariat, headquartered in Haifa, Israel, does NOT want YOU to know about us! Indeed, if you merely ask them about the Aghsan (descendants of Baha'u'llah) you may be "declared" a Covenant-Breaker, and be shunned for life.
The Haifan Organization (i.e. "The Baha'i World Faith") has changed Baha'i history, and suppressed it, only publishing those things they want YOU to know about, and suppressing all else. This is why they do the following:
*Deny the Aghsan (blood relatives of Baha'u'llah) access to the Shrine of Baha'u'llah.
*Excommunicates any Baha'i who tries to contact the Aghsan (family of Baha'u'llah)
*Denies Baha'i scholars all requests to read and translate the full works of The Báb and His disciples such as Quddus; instead only publishing carefully-selected "excerpts".
Supreme Council of Justice
The leadership of the Unitarian Baha'is is the Supreme Council of Justice, which is headed by a WOMAN as President, the direct descendant of Baha'u'llah.
*The Bab was the reincarnation of the Imam Mahdi (died as a child by falling down a well near Qom, Iran, in 260 A.H./874 A.D.) One thousand lunar years later (1260 A.H./1844 A.D.). The Writings of the Bab have been SURPRESSED by the Haifan Baha'i "AO" because they contain many references to "return" as reincarnation. The AO only allows carefully selected "excerpts" from the writings of The Bab to be published/
*Baha'u'llah was the reincarnation of Jesus Christ and the Imaam Husayn (martyred son of the Imaam Ali)
*Muhammad Ali Effendi (Head of the Unitarian Baha'is) was the reincarnation of The Báb.
*Jesus performed literal miracles and literally arose from the dead, and appeared unto many showing His wounds, but died 40 days later on the top of the Mount of Olives (his disciples seeing His spirit ascend into Heaven in a vision).
*There is a literal "Heaven" which consists of dwelling upon the Heavenly Planets. "Hell" is any life outside of the Heavenly Planets (such as this one on Earth--where the Sun burns our skin, we suffer, feel pain, injustice, and experience death).
*Women may serve on the Supreme Council of Justice and even be President of that Council.
*The Aghsan (Branches), the Family of Baha'u'llah, has and will always have a Divine Right to Head the Baha'i Faith, and an Aghsan must always serve as President of the Supreme Council of Justice.
*Muhammad Ali Effendi was the true successor to Baha'u'llah, who called him "The Most Great Branch" (i.e. no Branch, or Aghsan--blood descendant of Baha'u'llah, was greater than him...including 'Abdu'l-Baha)
*Abdu'l-Baha was a covenant-breaker and semi-secret RACIST! Please read the following: This is what 'Abdu'l-Baha had to say about native Africans:The inhabitants of a country life Africa are all as wandering savages and wild animals. They lack intelligence and knowledge; all are uncivilized; not one civilized and a wise man is not to be found among them. These are the proofs of the wise men. The prophets also acknowledge this opinion, towit: That education hath a great effect upon the human race, but they declare that minds and comprehensions are originally different. And this matter is self-evident; it cannot be refuted. We see that certain children of the same age, nativity and race, nay, from the same household, under the tutorship of one teacher, differ in their minds and conprehensions. One advanceth rapidly, another is slow in catching the rays of culture, still another remaineth in the lowest degree of stupidity. No matter how much the shell is educated (or polished), it can never become a radiant pearl. The black stone will not become the world-illumined gem." (Tablets of 'Abdu'l-Baha p.567 vv.3-4)'Abdu'l-Baha wrote a tablet to August Forel; whom He considered to be a 'wise man'. Forel believed that Negroes were "inherently inferior" to Caucasians, and could never ever be equal to them in intelligence. Forel was an early Western Bahá'í. Forel wrote:"...the brain of the Negro is weaker than that of the white... Even for their own good the blacks must be treated as what they are, an absolutely subordinate, inferior, lower type of man, incapable themselves of culture. That must once and for all be clearly and openly stated." (August Forel, quoted in Houston S. Chamberlain's _The Foundations of the Nineteenth Century_)'Abdu'l-Baha, in His Tablet (Epistle) to Forel, writes:"O revered personage, lover of truth! ***Thy works are no doubt of great benefit, and if published, send us a copy." (verse 6:1,7)That Tablet is infallible Scripture to Baha'is!
'Abdu'l-Baha called Forel a "lover of truth!" and that his works were of great value. 'Abdu'l-Baha also wrote this about native Africans:"It is, therefore, certain that sins such as anger, jealousy, dispute, coventouness, avarice, ignorance, prejudice, hatred, pride, and tyranny exist in the physical world. All these brutal qualities exist in the nature of man. A man who had not had a spirutal education is a brute. Like the savages of Africa, whose actions, habits and morals are purely sensual, they act according to the demands of nature to such a degree that they rent and eat one another." (Some Answered Questions 29:5)'Abdu'l-Baha taught (in 1913) that black people should ever be grateful to white people:
"As ignorance is the cause of crimes, the more knowledge and science increases, the more crimes will diminish. Consider how often murder occurs among the barbarians of Africa; they even kill one another to eat each other's flesh and blood!" (Some Answered Questions 77:13)
"If a child is left in its natural state and deprived of education, there is no doubt that it will grow up in ignorance and illiteracy, its mental faculties dulled and dimmed; in fact, it will become like an animal. This is evident among the savages of central African, who are scarcely higher than the beast in mental development." (The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p.311)"The black man must ever be grateful to the white man, for he has manifested great courage and self-sacrifice in behalf of the black race. Four years he fought their cause, enduring severe hardships, sacrificing life, family, treasure, all for his black brother until the great war ended in the proclamation of freedom. By this effort and accomplishment the black race throughout the world was influenced and benefited. Had this not been accomplished, the black man in Africa would still be bound by the chains of slavery. Therefore, his race should everywhere be grateful, for no greater evidence of humanism and courageous devotion could be shown than the white man has displayed. If the blacks of the United States forget this sacrifice, zeal and manhood on the part of the whites, no ingratitude could be greater or more censurable. If they could see the wretched conditions and surroundings of the black people of Africa today, the contrast would be apparent and the fact clearly evident that the black race in America enjoys incomparable advantages. The comfort and civilization under which they live here are due to the white man's effort and sacrifice. Had this sacrifice not been made, they would still be in the bonds and chains of slavery, scarcely lifted out of an aboriginal condition. Therefore, always show forth your gratitude to the white man. (The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p.12)How did black Americans live in 1913 when 'Abdu'l-Baha said this?
Did 'Abdu'l-Baha teach that all races were equal in intelligence? He wrote:"Ten children of the same age, with equal station of birth, taught in the same school, partaking of the same food, in all respects subject to the same environment, their interests equal andin common, will evidence separate and distinct degrees of capability and advancement; some exceedingly intelligent and progressive, some of mediocre ability, others limited and incapable. One may become a learned professor while another under the same course of education proves dull and stupid. From all standpoints the opportunities have been equal but the results and outcomes vary from the highest to the lowest degree of advancement. It is evident therefore that MANKIND DIFFERS in natal capacity and intrinsic intellectual endowment." (Foundation of World Unity, pp.54-5 verse 3)'Abdu'l-Baha actually taught that the Persian race was the most innately superior of all races:"It should not be imagined that the people of Persia are inherently deficient in intelligence, or that for essential perceptiveness and understanding, inborn sagacity, intuition and wisdom, or innate capacity, they are inferior to others. God forbid! On the contrary, they have always excelled all other peoples in endowments conferred by birth." (Secret of Divine Civilization, p.9)He also wrote:"Every imperfect soul is self-centred and thinketh only of his own good. But as his thoughts expand a little he will begin to think of the welfare and comfort of his family. If his ideas still more widen, his concern will be the felicity of his fellow citizens; and if still they widen, he will be thinking of the glory of his land and of his race." (Selections from the Writings of 'Abdu'l-Baha, p.69)That is just like something David Duke (American white-supremacist) once wrote!!!
Muhammad Ali Effendi NEVER wrote or said such things!
Members of the Family of Baha'u'llah claimed that Abbas Effendi (i.e. "'Abdu'l-Baha") poisoned the brother of Baha'u'llah, Subh-i-Azal. Many claimed that Abbas was all "smiles, love and tolerance" to Westerners, but as soon as the Westerners left, he often beat Baha'is whom he thought had offended him or the Westerners.
At the death of Baha'u'llah, Abbas threw Muhammad-Ali Effendi and his family out of the house that Baha'u'llah gave them. This house became the "Pilgrim House" where Abbas would entertain wealthy British and American Baha'i pilgrims.
Abbas Effendi ('Abdu'l-Baha) changed many of the Holy Laws and ordinances of Baha'u'llah, such as the following:
*Baha'u'llah authoried that Baha'i men could marry up to 2 wives in the Kitab-i-Aqdas. Abbas Effendi "interpreted" that to mean that one could only have one wife (Had Baha'u'llah wanted that to be the Law HE would have said so).
*Baha'u'llah wanted Baha'is to worship as Muslims do, together in Masjids. 'Abdu'l-Baha himself worshipped in a Masjid every Friday, but allowed Western Baha'is to merely recite prayers sitting down and faced anywhere they wished.
*Baha'u'llah taught that Jesus arose from the dead, just as the Gospel relate, but 'Abdu'l-Baha taught that Jesus never arose, but only the "spirit" of His disciples arose after three days, and that the Gospels are historical until the death of Jesus but "mere parables" after the death of Jesus.
*Baha'u'llah taught reincarnation, as did The Báb did, under the term "return". Mullah Husayn, the first disciple of The Báb, was the "return" (reincarnation) of the Prophet Muhammad. The Báb was the "return" of the Imaam Mahdi, who died as a young boy in 844 A.D. Baha'u'llah was the "return" of the Imaam Husayn (martyred son of the Imaaam Ali) and the "return" of Jesus Christ; Who had returned "in" His Person. But 'Abdu'l-Baha changed this, and denied the reincaration was even possible (is anything "impossible" with God?)
Shoghi Effendi, the "Guardian" of the Baha'i Faith and successor of 'Abdu'l-Baha, was an anti-Semite, saying that the Jews suffered for 2,000 years (he said this years after the Holocaust) because they persecuated Christ for three years!
"The Jews suffered for 2,000 years for persecuting Christ, "The Son of God," for 3 years." (Haifa Notes--May 2, 1952, p.4)Shoghi Effendi personally designed a "House of the Guardianship" that would include the eldest men of his descendants. But, he died in 1957, childless.
Abbas Effendi ('Abdu'l-Baha) once prophesied that the Baha'i Faith would have "24 Guardians":"In each cycle the Guardians and holy souls have been twelve. So Jacob had twelve sons; in the time of Moses there were twelve heads or chiefs of the tribes; in the time of Christ there were twelve Apostles; and in the time of Muhammad there were twelve Imams. But in this glorious manifestation there are twenty-four, double the number of all others, for the greatness of this manifestion requires it. These holy souls are in the presence of God seated on their own thrones: meaning they reign eternally." (Some Answered Questions, p.67)Yet, according to the Haifan Baha'i leadership ("Universal House of Justice" and "Office of the Secretariat") there was and will only be on "Guardian" of the Baha'i Revelation. Yet another false prophecy by Abbas Effendi.
Shoghi Effendi even changed some of the teachings of 'Abdu'l-Baha, for example:
*'Abdu'l-Baha wanted the Baha'i Faith to be a movement, not an organization. He said:"The Baha'i Movement is not an organization. You can never organize the Baha'i Cause. The Baha'i movement is the spirit of the age. It is the essence of all the highest ideals of this century. The Baha'i Cause is an INCLUSIVE MOVEMENT: The teachings of all the religions and societies are found here; the Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Mohammedans, Zoroastrians, Theosophists, Freemasons, Spiritualists, et. al. find their highest aims in this Cause. Even the Socialists and philosophers find their theories fully developed in this Movement." (Abdu'l-Baha, quoted in "The Baha'i Temple at Wilmette To Be Built with Money from Every Race, Clime and Religion under the Sun," By Isabel Fraser, The North Shore Review, May 16, 1914, in Star of the West, Vol. 25, p. 67)Shoghi Effendi totally reversed this, created a top-down "Administrative Order" (AO) that all Baha'is must adhere to and belong to or be shunned.
*'Abdu'l-Baha wanted Baha'is to call themselves "Baha'i-Christians" and "Baha'i-Freemasons" and "Baha'i-Muhammadans". When a Christian man asked 'Abdu'l-Baha if he should leave his church in order to become a Baha'i, 'Abdu'l-Baha answered:"You must not dissociate yourself from it [the questioner's church]. Know this; the Kingdom of God is not in any Society; some seekers go through many Societies as a traveller goes through many cities till he reach his destination. If you belong to a Society already do not forsake your brothers. You can be a Baha'i-Christian, a Baha'i-Freemason, a Baha'i-Jew, a Baha'i-Muhammadan."(from Abdu'l-Baha in London-- Source)Shoghi Effendi utterly reversed this, stating that one could NOT be a Baha'i and a Freemason, or a Muslim, or a Christian at the same time. All had to be members of his "Administrative Order" or be shunned.
Neither The Báb nor Baha'u'llah nor even 'Abdu'l-Baha considered the Baha'i Faith to be a "new religion" that replaced Islaam. They believed that Jesus' religion was ISLAAM! The Religion of ISLAAM was created by Abraham, then Joseph, then Moses, then Jesus, then Muhammad, then The Báb, then Baha'u'llah; 7 Messengers of ISLAAM in total.
Baha'u'llah believed that the Baha'i Faith was a Revelation of ISLAAM, not a replacement religion for Islaam!
The Family of Baha'u'llah
The Aghsan (Family of Baha'u'llah) is calling upon all Baha'is to reject the false "Administrative Order" in Haifa, and to use the independent investigation of truth to investigate our claims.
If the NSA of your country knows you are investigating the Unitarian Baha'is, they will ORDER YOU to cease or face being declared a "Covenant-Breaker". Does THAT sound like the independent investigation of Truth to you?
Are you Jewish and a Baha'i? WHY are you following a man (Shoghi Effendi) who believed that the Holocaust was God's just punishment for your ancestors persecuting Christ?
Are you an African-American Baha'i? WHY are you still following a man ('Abdu'l-Baha) who thought YOUR RACE WAS LOWER THAN THE ANIMAL?
Do you believe that Jesus Christ arose from the dead just as the Gospels say? Then WHY are you still a member of a group that denies Jesus ever arose from the dead? WHY??????
The Family of Baha'u'llah is HERE!
Open your eyes! Reject the false claims of 'Abdu'l-Baha and his successors. Come to the Family of Baha'u'llah and the ONE TRUE BAHA'I FAITH!
