Some Quotes about Islam from Babi and Baha’i Writings

Ali Muhammad Bab wrote:

“Since at the time when the Holy Qur’an was revealed the people of those days prided themselves over their mastery of the language, Allah sent down this book in such a beautiful, vigorous and perfect style of language that nothing better can be imagined. And in this book the truth of the claims of the Holy Prophet Muhammad has been established on the most evident, manifest and irrefutable basis” (Al-Bayan Ms.)

Abdul Baha’ writes:
“Among the miracles of the Holy Qur’an one is that it stands on a sure foundation of reason and wisdom in everything it teaches. On the basis of complete certainty it has propounded a sharia which for the people of this age forms the very essence of spiritual life. In addition to formulating a sharia the Qur’an also explains some weighty points of History and Mathematics which run counter to the theories accepted in those days, and it has been proved that the Qur’anic view is the correct one” .1

Baha’ullah himself says:

“The faulty intelligence and grasp of human beings cannot fully comprehend the vast body of truths embodied in the Holy Qur’an, just as a spider cannot hunt down and catch a bird” .2

‘Abdul Fadal, a well-known Baha’i missionary, says:

“These verses of the Holy Qur’an clearly indicate that the principles of sharia, its details, the arguments which support it, its origin and achievement, in short everything has been fully and conclusively dealt with in it, no aspect of any worthwhile question having been left incomplete or inconclusive”3

Baha’ullah wrote during his life at ‘Akka: “The sharia of Muhammad is complete and perfect in every way. The fault lies with the Muslims that they do not live up to it. If the Muslims were to act upon it, there would be peace in the whole world”4

  1. Jazakumullah.
    It is clear that Islam possesses marvelous pearls of truth and wisdom. Alhamdulillah it is only Jamaa’t Ahmadiyya that practices it’s true teachings.

  2. On one side, the truth of Islam and The Holy Qur’an is documented by the founders of Baha’i and Babi faith. on the other side, the truth of Ahmadiyyat lies in their admission of the truth of the Islam and the Holy Qur’an. They refuted the teachings of the Holy Qur’an that the era of Hazrat Prophet Muhammad ends after the first millennium. Baha’ullah is the prophet of the next millennium, while Jama’at Ahmadiyya claims that Prophet Muhammad SAW is the final law-bearing prophet of all the worlds ever and the Holy Qur’an is the final book of God. Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad alaihe salam is the promised Messiah and the reformer of this age to glorify the Holy Qur’an and the prophet Muhammad’s teachings.

  3. I cannot understand. To my knowledge Mr Bahaullah claimed to be god himself and he wrote his own book instead of Holy Quran, but the above quoting state otherwise.
    And as brother Basharat Haye sahib said, “Jazakallah for pointing out disintict differences between Ahmadiyyat & Baha’i thanks.” did he mean to say indistinct?
    For, in the quotes I find no difference.

    • Bahais believe in one God and also that all previous religions are true and their books are from God. Baha’ullah is taken as the new universal prophe. Current Bahaais have severed all connections to Islam even though Bab was Muslim.

  4. Peace be on you.
    Why presenting Bahais as something which they were not!

    Kindly read the Ahmadiyya Muslim link to see Bahai’s anti-Islam stance:

    “Departures from Islam seems to have been made
    merely for the sake of making departures, for they do
    not confer upon mankind any additional benefit as
    compared to the Islamic Law which these sharias seek
    to replace.

    Taken on an intellectual plane, these sharias expose
    themselves as crude and clumsy attempts to take
    the place of the Holy Qur’an……….

    Baha’ullah ended by claiming Divinity for himself,
    and no very great amount of intelligence is
    needed to reject outright the claim of a person who
    claims Divinity. ”
