Who is Bahá'u'lláh to the various religions?


To Israel He was neither more nor less than the incarnation of the "Everlasting Father," the "Lord of Hosts" come down "with ten thousands of saints"; to Christendom Christ returned "in the glory of the Father," to Shi`ah Islam the return of the Imam Husayn; to Sunni Islam the descent of the "Spirit of God" (Jesus Christ); to the Zoroastrians the promised Shah; to the Hindus the reincarnation of Krishna; to the Buddhists the fifth Buddha.

Blessed is he who mingleth with all men in a spirit of utmost kindliness and love. ~Baha'u'llah

I one day asked 'Abdu'l-Bahá how it could ever be possible for me, deep in the mass of weak and selfish humanity, ever to hope to attain when the goal was so high and great.  He said that it is to be accomplished little by little; little by little.  And I thought to myself, I have all eternity for this journey from self to God. The thing to do is to get started.

We cannot know God directly, but only through His Prophets.  We can pray to Him realizing that through His Prophets we know Him, or we can address our prayer in thought to Bahá'u'lláh, not as God, but as the Door to our knowing God.
