Principles emphasized by Bahá'u'lláh

Among the principles emphasized by Bahá'u'lláh are:
  • The oneness of humanity
  • The equality of women and men
  • The elimination of prejudice
  • The elimination of extremes of wealth and poverty
  • The independent investigation of truth
  • Universal education
  • Religious tolerance
  • The harmony of science and religion
  • A world commonwealth of nations
  • A universal auxiliary language

Bahá'ís follow the moral code of the Ten Commandments--and more. Bahá'u'lláh forbids:

  • Killing
  • Stealing
  • Lying
  • Adultery and promiscuity
  • Gambling
  • Alcoholic drinks
  • Drug abuse
  • Gossip and backbiting

Bahá'ís strive to uphold a high moral standard. Bahá'u'lláh stressed the importance of:

  • Honesty
  • Trustworthiness
  • Chastity
  • Service to others
  • Purity of motive
  • Generosity
  • Deeds over words
  • Unity
  • Work as a form of worship
