The Bahá’í Faith is the youngest of the world’s independent religions. Its founder, Bahá’u’lláh (1817-1892), is regarded by Bahá’ís as the most recent in the line of Messengers of God that stretches back beyond recorded time and that includes Abraham, Moses, Buddha, Krishna, Zoroaster, Christ and Muhammad.
The central theme of Bahá’u’lláh‘s message is that humanity is one single race and that the day has come for its unification in one global society.
Bahá’ís live in 235 countries and territories throughout the world. They come from over 2100 ethnic, racial, and tribal groups and number some five million worldwide.
The Bahá’í Faith was introduced in Mauritius in 1953. Bahá’ís in Mauritius and around the world have been working to eliminate prejudice of all kinds, contributing to a new model of global society that is characterized by unity and harmony, justice and peace.
Bahá’ís, along with their friends and neighbours are involved in a series of initiatives that include the education of children, the empowerment of young people and programs to assist in the development of our spiritual and moral capacities in order to be of greater service to humanity.
