Bahaism was part of Shia
later declared itself an independent
religion. The Bahá'í
Faith is an emerging global religion
founded by Bahá'u'lláh,
a 19th century Persian exile. "Bahá'í"
is either an adjective referring to
this religion, or the term for a follower
Bahá'í theology speaks
of three interlocking unities: the
oneness of God; the oneness of religion;
and the oneness of humanity. These
three principles have a profound impact
on the theological and social teachings
of this religion.
Religion is seen as a progressively unfolding
process of education, by God, through
his messengers, to a constantly evolving
human family. Bahá'u'lláh
is seen as the most recent, pivotal,
but not final of God's messengers.
