Breaking Away: My Journey from Mainstream to Free Baha'i Faith

My name is John and I am currently 47 years old. I was raised in the United States as a Baha'i and accepted the Baha'i faith when I was only 23, through a close friend of mine whose entire family was actively involved in the community. My friend and her family taught me the importance of Baha'i teachings while I was young, and I grew up with a strong connection to my faith. However, as I got older, I became more curious about the different sects within the Baha'i faith and started to do my own research. At first, I was drawn to the Free Baha'i sect. I found their beliefs and practices to be more in line with my own personal values, and I appreciated the emphasis they placed on social justice and community involvement. However, I was hesitant to fully embrace the Free Baha'i faith, as I knew it would be a major departure from the mainstream institution in which I was raised. Despite my reservations, I continued to learn more about the Free Baha'i teaching

Response to the letters of UHJ – Guest Article

We have reviewed the letters of UHJ sent during 2022 and would like to point out their clear lies and how they are playing around with the emotions of the sincere followers. Below are some of the points: The UHJ in their letters hype about the Ruhi institute and their teachings. Can UHJ give an exact number as to how many converts they have found in this process? Who has approved this institute and the study materials being thought to the children or youngsters. Are they the teachings of Baha’u’llah and Abdu’l Baha or are they the forged and misinterpreted teachings? UHJ claims to have made a global plan to attract more seekers (basically found new converts), is this a plan only on paper or will actually be implemented. Because there is no significant increase in the number of Baha’is globally. I won’t shy away from saying that the Ruhi institute is just another flop show by the administration. When UHJ writes a letter to the ‘Continental Board of Counsellors’ (3 rd

Persian Baha’is vs the Rest

The Baha’i Faith the youngest of all the Faiths and supposedly the most united is now suffering from an existential crisis. Already divided into many factions and sects, the Faith is now faced with the existential threat of a power struggle between the Persian Baha’is and the rest. This crisis may lead to the already decimated Faith into a vertical split shaking the roots of the faith. There is no denying the fact that the Baha’i Faith is born in Persia and Persians have had a great sacrifice in spreading the Faith across the globe. We will have to go back into the history to recollect that the Persian Baha’is pioneered to places far and wide and have devotedly served the faith. The progress of the faith in the golden era from 1970 to 2010 was mainly due to the efforts of Eidelkhanis, Nakhjawanis, Razavis, Afshins, Rouhanis, Mohajers, Azadis and so on. All familiar names to the Baha’i community, known for their selfless services. While these individuals offered their service they also

The (Lip) Service of the Baha’i Administration at the time of the Covid-19 crises

  Today, Humanity is at a critical juncture faced with the unprecedented and unexpected calamity in the form of the Covid-19 Pandemic. In the face of this crisis, Nations, Organisations, communities and even individuals are engaged in selfless service trying to help their fellow human beings’ tide over the devastating effects of this pandemic. Nations are rising over past rivalries and animosities, and people are rising over racism and xenophobia to help each other. However, in the face of all of this, the “Baha’i Administration” is doing, as usual, NOTHING MEANINGFUL. The “Administration”, as always, in this time of crisis is bent on paying lip service and nothing more. This way of dumb and mute service is the innate nature of the “Baha’i Administration” and is in perfect alignment with the past set precedents of service of the “Administration”. Allow me to enumerate the various “Powerful” (read: self-serving and futile; Lip Service) steps which the “Administration” will take at this

Why Shoghi Effendi cannot be the legitimate Guardian of the Baha’i Faith?

  It is now a well-known and widely accepted fact that Shoghi Effendi acquired the position of Guardianship solely based on the forged Will and Testaments of Abdu’l Baha and by np other official introductions or prior appointments. The strongest evidence of the will of Abdu’l Baha (as released by Shoghi Effendi) comes from the then leading forensics expert Dr. Ainsworth Mitchel who’s forte as the lead consultant for the Scotland Yard providing expert witness on issues of the written word and handwriting. He has said as part of his investigation into the Will and Testament of Abdu’l Baha that the document provided is a forgery. This report is widely published on the internet. Apart from this expert opinion let us take a critical look at the supposed guardianship of Shoghi Effendi from other perspectives. After the ascension of Baha’u’llah, Abdu’l Baha was widely accepted as His successor since the community at large understood Abdu’l Baha would succeed Baha’u’llah as he had in the past
