The True History of the Faith
The TRUTH About the Baha'i Faith (Part III)
Up until now, you've been denied the true history of your Faith. We feel that you have a right to know the facts.
We know that you are sincere, and we know that you believe that only the Baha'i Faith can bring world peace, and race unity, and spiritual solutions to economic problems, and all the rest. God bless you for wishing to sacrifice to bring these things to reality! If God is behind it, your efforts will succeed. If God is not behind it, all your efforts will ultimately fail; no matter how sincere and dedicated you are.
The religion of The Báb and Baha'u'llah was ISLAAM, according to their own words in their own books. The Báb was not the Imaam Mehdi, but "the servant" of the Imaam Mehdi (Quddús), according to his own words. Baha'u'llah was not a Messenger of God (Razool), nor a Prophet (Nabi) but a "Perfect Man" (Sufi Saint); a man who has reached the highest spiritual station that a non-prophet can reach, which is called fana'i'llah (Arabic: "dying in God"). Such men are called "Manifestations of Truth".
'Abdu'l-Baha (Abbas Effendi) was not the kindly grandfatherly peace-loving anti-racist you've been taught to believe. Read again what he had to say about "black Africans" above in Part I. He called black Africans "kaka siah" (Farsi: "niggers") and slapped people who angered him. He used horribly "foul" language against those who disagreed with him, even making jokes about how their sons sucking semen from the penises of male donkies; thinking they were drinking milk! He excommunicated his own brothers, and their wives and children too, when they complained of this. He forbade his brothers and their families from visiting the burial place of Baha'u'llah. Shoghi Effendi continued this until he was overturned by Israeli courts of law.
Shoghi Effendi "changed" many doctrines and practices, and his translations of the Writings are at best "loose" and at worst dishonest. He knew that Baha'u'llah was not a Prophet or Messenger of God, and sought to hide that, for his own personal ends. He was not a religious man, but saw the Baha'i Faith as a "means" to change the world into something he wanted it to be. He changed the Baha'i Faith from a spiritual movement into a social-change movement. His plans for a perpetual Guardianship, with his eldest sons as Guardians, failed; because God was not behind it.
The Universal House of Justice is deliberately "hiding" and "suppressing" most of the Writings of The Báb and Baha'u'llah, and "all" of the Writings of Quddús! Why? They don't want YOU to read them! Why? Because much of these Writings contradict Shoghiism; which is erroneous called "Baha'i teachings".
Baha'u'llah wanted to form a Sufi Order in the religion of Islaam, not start a new world religion with aims of establishing a World Government (New Work Order), but to teach us how to become "one" (spiritually) with God. The Baha'i Faith has forgotten this original spiritual mandate, and has become just another NGO (non-governmental organization) that supports a liberal-socialist and world-federalist agenda. Baha'u'llah must be rolling in his grave!
The Universal House of Justice ("The House") could have translated all of the writings of the Central Figures in the early 1970s; when they had the money and expertise to do so. They had the means to do so even back then. But they have chosen to suppress these writings, and gather them up NOT to publish (except for carefully selected "Selections") but leave them untranslated, and unavailable for Baha'i scholars to publish. Yet, some works have been smuggled out of Iran, and have been translated by Baha'i linguists, and the House has instructed the NSA in the countries where these scholars live to "removed the membership" of many of these scholars. How tragic!
They won't tell you, and if you ask them more than a few times they will "direct" your National Spiritual Assembly to remove your name from the Baha'i enrollment records and to send you a letter saying: "You are no longer a Baha'i". They won't declare you a Covenant-Breaker. They'll just have your NSA send you a letter.
Why won't the House translate and publish all the writings of The Báb, and Quddús, and Baha'u'llah, and the Seers (Shaykh Ahmad and Siyyid Kazim), and the many Companions of the Central Figures? Why? You cannot ask that question! If you ask more than once, they will tell your NSA to remove your name from the rolls. They don't know how to handle what they are "discovering" in the unpublished Writings, because these Writings absolutely contradict what they were taught as "The Baha'i Faith". They don't know what to do, so, they sweep it all under the rug, because they are completely committed to the establishment of the "New World Order" envisioned by Shoghi Effendi.
Again, no matter how sincere, hardworking, and dedicated they might be, if God is not behind Shoghi's "World Order of Baha'u'llah", then it will fail, just like the perpetual Guardianship "failed"; because God was not the Author of it.
Shoghi's New World Order
Please stop working for Shoghi Effendi's New World Order. It is not of God, and will fail. Baha'u'llah wanted an International Tribunal, not a Baha'i World State. The Muslim and Christian communities will never join the Baha'i Faith. Never! Shoghite teachings are simply far too blasphemous to Christians and Muslims! Shoghi Effendi's "Baha'i Faith" appeals to moderate Liberals who are most interested in World Peace. The world will never become a Baha'i World State because the entire world will never become Baha'i, or any other "one" religion or sect.
Universal House of Justice (Women Not Allowed)
The Baha'i Faith boasts it believes in the Equality of Men and Women. Yet, no women may serve on the Universal House of Justice: which is the 9 man (literally) council that governs the Faith worldwide. 'Abdu'l-Baha even did not allow women to serve on the Chicago House of Spirituality: which was the first Baha'i institution in North America. The first Chicago House of Spirituality (c. 1903) had 19 men and women, but when 'Abdu'l-Baha found this out, he told them to reduce the number to "9" and the 9 were to be males only. Shoghi Effendi changed that, and allowed women to serve on local and national Spiritual Assemblies which shall eventually become "Houses of Justice". But not the Universal House of Justice.
Some ex-Baha'is who used to work at the Baha'i World Centre claim that the wealthy Afnan family really controls the Baha'i Faith, and that the Universal House of Justice are mere "servants" of the Afnan family. The Afnans are the descendants of the uncle of The Báb (Siyyid Ali Muhammad Shirazi). They became very wealthy in the black African slave trade in Persia (buying black slaves in Zanzibar from Arab slave traders, and then and exporting the black slaves to Iran) and the opium trade to China (before both trades were made illegal in the 1890s). The Afnans have vast holdings all around the world, including in Israel. They allegedly owned the main construction company involved in the Baha'i World Centre "remodeling" from the early 1980s to the late 1990s; which cost an estimated 250 million dollars. The money for this construction came from Baha'is from all over the world. Several Afnans have served on the Universal House of Justice.
Universal House of Justice Members do not campaign. How then are they voted for by Baha'i Delegates? Basically, it is via word-of-mouth. Members of the International Teaching Committee travel around the world giving talks to various Baha'i communities, and "names" are dropped either during or after the talk. Such things as "Dr. so and so is doing so much for the Faith in India" or "Mr. so and so is really helping the Faith in Europe" so when when an "opening" comes up in the Universal House of Justice (death or resignation) that position is soon filled by the person that the Continental Counselors want. They are given their orders by the International Teaching Committee, who is given their orders by the Universal House of Justice. So, in essence, the Universal House of Justice really decides who fills their vacancies. Do anyone give "them" orders? Only the House knows for sure. Certainly, when Mary Maxwell/Ruhiyyih Khanum was still alive, she gave them their orders!
No World Centre in FOGI
The Baha'i World Centre in Haifa, Israel, is absolutely stunning! There are marble-covered buildings with Greek columns, and a Holy Shrine on slope of Mount Carmel, with beautiful terraced gardens. Millions of tourists, mostly non-baha'is, visit the Gardens each year. It is a major tourist attraction in Israel. How much did all this cost the Baha'is? That is a carefully guarded secret. By some guesstimates, the Baha'i World Centre and gardens in Haifa, Israel, cost about 250 million dollars to build. Can you imagine how many hungry mouths could have been fed, how many poor children could have gone to school, how many sick people dying of AIDS or malaria could have been given medicine to keep them alive, with 250 million dollars?
Baha'i World Centre (Haifa, Israel)
The Spiritual Station of Baha'u'llah
Baha'u'llah never claimed to be a Razool (Messenger) or Nabi (Prophet), but wrote that Muhammad (pbuh) was the Finality of both Messengership and Prophethood. Baha'u'llah claimed to be a "Manifestation of Truth"; which means he claimed to have achieved Fana'i'llah (annihilation in God), the highest Sufi spiritual station. Another Muslim who claimed to have achieved that station was Mansur al-Hallaj (d. 922 A.D.) who was crucifixed by orthodox Muslims in 922 A.D., in Iran, for writing the following:"I saw the Lord with the eyes of the heart.Al-Hallaj would often say "Ana ee-Haqq" (Arabic: "I am the Truth"), meaning "I am God". That's why he was killed in 922 A.D.
I asked, 'Who are You?'
And He replied:
There is a Verse in the Qu'ran which says:"And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than his jugular vein." (50:15)The Sufis, such as the Naqshbandi (nawgk-shhhh bawn-dee), interpret that Verse to mean that "God" is the ruh (spirit) of every man and every woman, and the nafs (soul) is "satan". This is the same doctrine in Hinduism, which says the Brahman ("God") is the atman (spirit inside a man or woman). In the Bhagavad Gita, the most holy book in Hinduism, Krishna identifies Himself as Brahman, the Oversoul, the Supreme Being, the Father of the cosmos, and the "spirit" (atman) in every man and women.
In English "soul" and "spirit" mean the same thing: the invisible "essence" of a person that survives death. But, in Islaam, the nafs (soul) is different from the ruh (spirit). In Sufiism, the nafs of a person is satan, and the ruh of a person is God/Allah.
We All Come from God and Return Unto Him
Sufiism teaches that, with certain spiritual practices, an ordinary man can reach the Seventh Mystical Valley (the 7th Valley) and "annihilate" his nafs (satan), and what is left over is body (which returns to dust at death) and ruh which is a "part" of Allah; like a proton of light is "part" of the Sun. The "spirit" (ruh) of men and women are pre-existent, but the "soul" (nafs) is created at conception. The soul (nafs) is from nature, but the spirit (ruh) is from God, and returns to Him. The meaning "return to Him" means like water is caught up into a cloud over the ocean, then the cloud produces drops of rain, which are separated from the ocean, but the drops of rain gather and go down rivers back into the ocean. Allah is the Mighty Ocean, and our "spirits" are the drops of rain that are temporarily separated, and later return, to that Mighty Ocean.
This "return" to God takes a long time, and many lifetimes on many different planets. Each planet is divided into one physical realm and seven spiritual "unseen" realms. Between death and "return" (reincarnation) we dwell in one of the spiritual realms. The lowest one is hellish, and the highest one is heavenly. But, we do not dwell in these realms (physical and spiritual) forever. Eventually, we all return to God; like a drop of rain returns to the ocean. How "hellish" or "heavenly" our journey back to God, depends upon how we "submit" our ego/self/nafs/soul/Satan-within to our id/conscience/ruh/spirit/God-within. Our "ego" rebels against our "Id" because our "ego" is selfish, and created by nature, whereas our "Id" is divine and indeed "part" of God as a drop of rain is part of the Ocean, but temporarily "separated" from the Ocean.
Baha'is still believe in becoming "One" with God, but they interpret that in a "Shoghist" manner: saying that "Oneness with God" merely refers to agreeing with the Principles of the Faith (One God, Equality of Genders, Elimination of Prejudice, Spiritual Solutions to Economic Problems, Universal Education for all, Universal Auxiliary Language, etc.) , and working (social action) to establish those Principles worldwide (i.e. working to ultimately establish the Baha'i World State, or New World Order, as envisioned by Shoghi Effendi).
Iblis Refuses To Bow To Adam
In the Qur'an, there is a story of Iblis (satan) who is created out of "smokeless fire" (i.e. dark matter). God then makes Adam out of "mud" (i.e. physical elements) and commands Iblis (ee-bliss) to bow down and worship Adam. Iblis refuses, saying that he will worship Allah alone, and not a "creature" (Adam). Iblis is then cast out of the Presence of God, for rebelling (i.e. refusing a direct order of Allah). Why would Allah want Iblis to worship a "creation" and not Allah the Creator?
The Sufi interpretation of this story, is that Allah created One Ruh (Spirit) and called that "Adam" and our own "ruh" (spirit) is a "copy" of that One Ruh (Spirit), and that one Ruh is the Holy Spirit, and that one Ruh is ALLAH; just like your "image" in a mirror is YOU! "Iblis" is the symbol of the nafs/self/ego which is Satan that refuses to bow down (i.e. submit/obey) to the ruh/spirit/conscience which is the "image" of Allah.
The entire purpose of the Revelation of Muhammad (pbuh) is to teach people that they did not need to become Christians or Jews or Sabeans (Mandaeans) to worship Allah. All they needed to do was to "submit" their own will to the Will of God every day and night of their lives, and he called this daily spiritual practice "Submission" (Arabic: "Islaam") to the Will of God.
The entire purpose of the Revelation of Baha'u'llah was NOT to build a New World Order (Baha'i World State) but to create a spiritual order of Mystical Travelers who walked the Path of Holiness daily (by performing spiritual practices such as Zihr, daily prayer, alms, meditation, etc.) in their spiritual quest to "annihilate" the nafs/ego/self, which is Satan, so that they will be "Born Again" and to join the Concourse on High (Messengers/Prophets/Saints), which is in the Kingdom of God (Unseen Spiritual Realms), at death.
Those who reach the 7th Mystical Valley in life becomes a "Wali" (Arabic: "Saint"), a Friend of God, and at death they go to Paradise, which is a real spiritual dimension, very pleasant and very pleasurable; like an absolutely wonderful dream that you don't want to wake up from! Paradise is described in great detail by Shaykh Ahmad and Siyyid Kazim in their writings. Both men claim to have been to these places, via visions. Also, the Muhaddas (Jamshid Rohani) describes the spiritual dimension of Paradise (called "the Garden" by Muslims) in THE GOOD BOOK, because he has been there in OBEs (Out-of-Body Experiences).
The Manifestations of God
Baha'u'llah as the latest Messenger of God (Razool), is a creation of Shoghi Effendi. When his relatives complained about what he was doing, he excommunicated all of them. The Seers Shaykh Ahmad and Siyyid Kazim, said that "Manifestations of God" including the following:
Messengers of God
Prophets of God
The 12 Imaams
The 4 Gates
Holy Ones (Saints)
The Muslim "Saints" are those who have reached the 7th Valley. They are called "Manifestions of God" by the Seers and by The Báb in their writings. Shoghi Effendi made "Manifestation of God" apply only to Messengers of God, and not to the others.
Shoghi Effendi NOT a Religious Man
Please remember, Shoghi Effendi was NOT a religious man. He hated to pray in Masjid on Friday, as all Baha'is did, along side of Muslims (because the Baha'is believed then they were Muslims just like Lutherans also believe they are also Christians). Shoghi Effendi was converted to the idea of World Federalism while a student at the American College of Beirut, and decided to change the Baha'i Faith from a mystical Sufi Order, based upon the Naqshbandi Order, into a new Independent World Religion that would establish a New World Order (i.e. Baha'i World State). Shoghi Effendi "lied". He was not a religious man at all. The Aghsan (sons of Baha'u'llah) said he never prayed unless as a "show" for wealthy American and British Baha'is who supported him financially. They said and wrote that Shoghi was a homosexual, who was "caught" at least three times having sex with men. That did not make him a hypocrite. What made him a hypocrite is that he condemned homosexuality in his writings, while at the same time "privately" he practiced it, like Sathya Sai Baba, the famous 20th century Hindu guru, who condemned homosexuality publicly but privately practiced it. What made Shoghi also a hypocrite, was to "change" the doctrines of Baha'u'llah to suit his own personal World Federalist agenda. The Members of the Universal House of Justice also believe in that agenda, which is why they are "hiding" much of the Writings, only translating carefully selected "Selections", and also why they "remove the membership" of any Baha'i scholar who publish any of the Writings they do not personally authorize being published.
Ruth White Writes A Book
Ruth White was an early prominent American Baha'i. She was wealthy, lived in Beverly Hills, and often would cable (wire bank transfers) donations to 'Abdu'l-Baha in Haifa. She once cabled 'Abdu'l-Baha and asked if he received her latest donation. He replied he had not received it. and knew nothing about it She checked with the bank in Haifa to where she cabled the money to, and found it was picked up by "Shoghi Effendi Rabbani" who did not tell 'Abdu'l-Baha about it. She found other of her donations were similarly intercepted by Shoghi, who did not give the money to 'Abdu'l-Baha nor inform him he was picking up the money. Not long after this, 'Abdu'l-Baha died, and Shoghi Effendi became Guardian.
It was years after 'Abdu'l-Baha died until the Western Baha'is were allowed to read the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha. Ruth White became suspicious of a "section" which appointed Shoghi as Guardian, because it didn't "sound" like 'Abdu'l-Baha. Shoghi Effendi wrote in English, and his sentences were as long as paragraphs. He had a very unique way of writing, in very long sentences that would go on almost forever. On ethe other hand, the sentences of 'Abdu'l-Baha were always short, and "flowery". Ruth White lived in Beverly Hills, the widow of a very rich man, and so she took a ship and went to Haifa, and got a copy of the Will on a printing plate (printing plates were used to make copies in those days), and sent it to several British handwriting experts, who told her that the sections in question were forgeries not in the hand ('Abdu'l-Baha) of the person who wrote the rest of the Will. She then writes a book called 'Abdu'l-Baha's Alleged Will is Fraudulent, and, on her own "dime", publishes it in 1930 and sends several thousand copies of the book to various Baha'is around the world, for free. Several hundred who read the book believe her, and form "The New History Society" which is later called the "Free Baha'is" and are now called the "Reformed Baha'i Faith" which has about a thousand adherents worldwide.
Ruth White (c. 1930)
A German "Free Baha'i" named Hermann Zimmer published A Fraudulent Testament Devalues the Baha'i Religion Into Political Shoghism (i.e. Shoghi Effendi forged the portion of 'Abdu'l-Baha's Will and Testament--proved by British handwriting experts hired by Ruth White--for the purpose of changing a religious movement into a "New World Order" movement). Zimmer spent his inheritance money publishing this booklet, and sending copies to all university libraries in the U.S., Canada, and the United Kingdom. A pdf copy of this book is available online under it's title.
A Fraudulent Testament by Hermann Zimmer
The Research Department of the Baha'i World Centre has admitted that there are two different hands that wrote the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha, and the part about Shoghi Effendi as Guardian was written by a different hand than the rest of the Will. The Research Department in Haifa, says that "second hand" was an unknown scribe, or suggest that 'Abdu'l-Baha wrote the first part of his Will in good health, and the second part (appointing Shoghi) when his health was failing; hence the difference in styles. A German follower of Ruth White, named Hermann Zimmer, later published a book in 1973 in English called A Fraudulent Testament Devalues the Baha'i Religion and Leads to Political Shoghism in which he argues that Shoghi Effendi forged the last part of the Will, and "corrupted" the Baha'i Revelation for his own "political" purposes i.e. to establish a New World Order. The German "Free Baha'i" published 10,000 copies of his book, and sent them to university libraries all over North America. The Reformed Baha'i Faith put a pdf copy of the Zimmer's book on their website.
Shoghi Effendi lied about the funderal of Subh-e-Azal
The Báb appointed Mirza Yahya Sub-e-Azal, the younger brother of Baha'u'llah, as the next "Gate" because Quddús was dead, martyred at the Tabarsi Shrine in 1849, and thus had gone back into "occultation" therefore requiring another deputy (Na'ih) or "Gate".
Mirza Yahya Subh-e-Azal (Arabic: "Dawn of Eternal Past") is much despised by the Baha'is, because he is presented to them as an evil man. The youngest sons of Baha'u'llah (Mohammad Ali Effendi and Badi'u'llah) are also presented as evil power-hunger dishonest men. However, their descendants remember them differently. For many decades the Baha'is proclaimed that Suhb-e-Azal was so evil that at his funeral nobody came but the two grave-diggers. But that is not the truth:
Funderal of Suhb-e-Azal on Cyrus
It should also be noted that Suhb-e-Azal had almost a hundred followers in Akka (seven of whom were murdered by Baha'is), and several thousand followers in Iran; none of whom were allowed by the Iranian or Turkish governments to travel to Cyprus to attend his funeral. According to Shoghi Effendi, nobody attended his funeral but the grave diggers.
The TRUTH is this:
*The Bab claimed to be the Fifth Gate of the Hidden Imaam, and not the Hidden Imaam himself.
*The Bab clearly identified Quddus ("kuhd-doos") the 18th Letter of the Living, as the Remnant of God, and "the First and the Last" but this Tablet is not published on orders of the Universal House of Justice, but you can find it online ( The Bab's Tablet of Visitation for Bábís Who Visit the Shrine of Quddús )
*The Bab clearly taught reincarnation, under the name "return" (raja), and that the 18 "Letters of the Living" were the return of the souls of Muhammad, Fatimah, the 12 Imaams (including the 12th or "Hidden" Imaam), and the 4 Gates.
*Quddus claimed to be the Hidden Imaam ("Remnant of God") at the Shrine of Shaykh Tabrisi in 1849, and his death literally fulfilled Shi'ite prophecies.
*The Bab clearly appointed Suhb-i-Azal as his successor, and even Baha'i scholars approved by the Universal House of Justice admit this.
*Baha'u'llah did NOT claim to be a Messenger or Prophet, but a "Perfect Man" and the founder of a new spiritual order based upon the Naqshbandi Sufi Order in which he was initiated and became a Sufi Master during his two years living as a Dervish in Suleimaniyyah, Iraq.
*Abbas Effendi ('Abdu'l-Baha) "changed" many doctrines and laws of his father, including regarding "two wives" and also he condemned reincarnation and preached that Jesus was never raised from the dead, but only his disciples were "raised from doubt" after three days, but the Gospels and Baha'u'llah clearly taught that Jesus was literally raised from the dead.
*'Abdu'l-Baha had a habit of slapping people who disagreed with him, and he used to make jokes about the chlldren of the followers of his brother Mohammad Ali Effendi, saying they sucked the penises of goats, mistaking their semen for milk.
*After the death of Baha'u'llah, the sons and main disciples of Baha'u'llah met at the Bahji (baw-zhee) mansion outside of Akka, and 'Abdu'l-Baha asked Miza Aqa Jan (the secretary of Baha'u'llah who personally wrote all his Tablets) whom he followed, and Mirza Aqa Jan replied that 'Abdu'l-Baha was distorting the laws and teachings of Baha'u'llah, at which time 'Abdu'l-Baha jumped up, grabbed Mirza Aqa Jan by the collar, slapped off his turban (a huge insult to a Persian man), and flung him to the ground, and this mistreatment continued by the followers of 'Abdu'l-Baha until Mirza Aqa Jan finally escaped and fled to the safety of Mohammad Ali Effendi.
*In the presence of liberal Westerners (rich American and European Baha'is), 'Abdu'l-Baha preached Race Unity and love, but in front of the Aghsan (family of Baha'u'llah), 'Abdu'l-Baha called black Africans "kakasiyah" (Farsi: "Niggers"), and he considered them to be "savages" and "lower than animals" in morals and intelligence, and Baha'is in Egypt and Iran continued to buy and sell black African slaves until the British in Egypt and the French in Iran outlawed slavery and the slave trade (see the book Black Pearls published by Kalimat Press--an independent Baha'i book publisher later banned by the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is of the United States).
*The "Apostles of Baha'u'llah" who were still alive at his death (1892) sided with the Branches (Mohammad Ali Effendi and Badi'u'llah) and against 'Abdu'l-Baha: as did Nabil Zirandi (author of "The Dawnbreakers"), the Personal Secretary of Baha'u'llah, who wrote his Tablets with his own hand, whose name was Mirza Aqa Jan, sided with the Branches (Mohammad Ali Effendi and Badi'u'llah) and against 'Abdu'l-Baha, and just about all of the other blood relatives of Baha'u'llah (all Aghsan except for the daughters of 'Abdu'l-Baha) did the same.
*George Ibrahim Kheiralla, the "Peter" of Baha'u'llah, who converted the first Westerners (thousand of them) to the Faith, and was a passionate Seeker of Truth, spent six months in Haifa with 'Abdu'l-Baha, but came to the conclusion that 'Abdu'l-Baha was an opportunist, and he sided with the Branches (Mohammed Ali Effendi and Badi'u'llah).
*Shoghi Effendi, the grandson of 'Abdu'l-Baha, was known as a practicing homosexual, "caught" several times having sex with men in Haifa, and this was generally known, and this is why 'Abdu''l-Baha sent him to Beirut, Lebanon, for college, and later Oxford University, and that is why the wife of 'Abdu'l-Baha arranged for Shoghi to get married to the very beautiful Mary Maxwell, in order to "cure" him. But it clearly did not work. Shoghi Effendi continued to go on four-month long vacations to Switzerland and England yearly, leaving Mary Maxwell at home to answer and sign letters in his name. Shoghi Effendi and Mary Maxwell kept separate bedrooms throughout their marriage, and Shoghi Effendi always slept alone in Haifa, with piles of letters from Baha'is on his bed; with a small writing board.
*Ruth White, a very wealthy American Baha'i woman living in Beverly Hills, California, frequently sends donations to 'Abdu'l-Baha, which he admits to her he has no knowledge of, and she checks with the bank in Haifa and discovers some of her donations were picked up by Shoghi Effendi, and not given to 'Abdu'l-Baha.
*Shoghi Effendi forged the portions of the "Will and Testament" of 'Abdu'l-Baha (according to Ruth White and two British handwriting experts she hired) making himself "Guardian" and telling the Baha'is they had to obey him "as they would obey God". The Research Department at the Baha'i World Centre in Haifa has admitted that the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha is "in two differnet hands" (with the second hand appointing Shoghi Effendi as Guardian), but ascribe the discrepancy to an "illness" that 'Abdu'l-Baha had, or that an unknown "scribe" wrote the second part o the Will.
*Shoghi Effendi told the Baha'is that the Branches (Mohammad Ali Effendi and Badi'u'llah) forbade 'Abdu'l-Baha from the Shrine of Baha'u'llah, but the truth is just the opposite, 'Abdu'l-Baha and Shoghi Effendi banned the Unitarians (followers of Mohammed Ali Effendi) from the Shrine of Baha'u'llah, and they had to take Shoghi Efendi to an Israeli court, who ruled in their favor.
*Shoghi Effendi claimed that Mohammad Ali Effendi, the second son of Baha'u'llah, was a selfish, dishonest, man, hungry for power, but those who knew him refute it and claim that Mohammad Ali Effendi was an extremely spiritual and humble man who refused to argue and refused to curse 'Abdu'l-Baha or his followers ('Abdu'l-Baha cursed his brother and his followers, the Unitarians, and made obscene jokes about their children).
*Shoghi Effendi's translation of the Kitab-i-Aqdas ("Most Holy Book" of Baha'u'llah) is "loose" at best, and deliberately misleading in a number of "key" Verses.
*Shoghi Effendi condemned homosexuality publicly, but secretly practiced it, and this was known by his own personal secretaries and family which is why he had them all declared "Covenant-Breakers" (his own parents, brothers, and sisters, cousins, and all their children, even infants).
*Shoghi Effendi and Mary Maxwell (Ruhiyyih Khanum) had no children, and did not adopt any, frustrating the line of Guardians, but Shoghi Effendi established the International Baha'i Council in 1954, placing Charles Mason Remey (a closeted homosexual man) as President, and naming his wife Mary Maxwell as "Secretary" (an inferior position). He called the International Baha'i Council "The Universal House of Justice in embryo" and placed a woman (Mary Maxwell) on it as Secretary. Shoghi Effendi also said that the Guardian would be President (not Secretary) of the International Baha'i Council. That is why Charles Mason Remey claimed to be the Second Guardian in 1961. At the time, about 10% of the Baha'is around the world accepted Remey as the Second Guardian.
*Shoghi Effendi went to England to "buy furniture" and refused to stay with any Baha'i, but stayed at a hotel in London known as a a "hook up" location for homosexual men; where he died of a fever.
*Mary Maxwell "PROBABLY" (there is no proof either way) destroyed the Will of Shoghi Effendi--kept in a wall safe only her and her husband could open-- soon after he died, lying to the Baha'is and telling them that Shoghi was "ill" for three days, "cleaning" his office while not letting anyone else in Shoghi's office, and then claiming she "did not know" if Shoghi had a Will, and "did not discuss" with her husband who would succeed him after his death, and she ruled the Faith with an iron fist as "Custodian" until her death.
Do you believe that Shoghi Effendi "never discussed" who would succeed him with his wife and main secretary, Mary Maxwell (Ruhiyyih Khanum) throughout their many decades of marriage and daily contact? You must believe that, or Mary Maxwell was lying. Why would she lie? She wanted to be "Guardian". She knew she could not claim that title. But she could claim the "power" as first-among-equals of the 9 "Custodians of Faith" (a position never mentioned in any Baha'i Tablet or any letters of Shoghi Effendi nor in any Pilgrim's Notes). And she got it!
*At the First Convocation of the Hands of the Cause of God, convened after the death of Shoghi Effendi, Mary Maxell (Ruhiyyih Khanum) disbanded the International Baha'i Council (which had not yet even functioned as a body), formed a new body called the Custodians (with her as de facto "head" Custodian in everything but title), and threatened to kill herself or become a monk in Tibet (which does not allow female monks) if the Hands did not all vote her way. They did.
*Charles Mason Remey later declares himself the Second Guardian, based upon his appointment as President of the International Baha'i Council (Shoghi Effendi wrote that only the Guardian could be President of that body), and the fact that 'Abdu'l-Baha adopted him as a son. Remey ("ray-mee") forms the Orthodox Baha'i Faith, which still exists today and numbers about 3,000.
*After the death of Mary Maxwell (Ruhiyyih Khanum) the Universal House of Justice becomes the true "head" of the Faith, and they spent about 250 million dollars on the Baha'i World Centre and Gardens in Haifa, Israel.
*The Universal House of Justice "removes the membership" from any Baha'i scholar who translates and publishes any Tablet, or any of the writings from any early Bábí or Baha'i, without their express permission (which they rarely give).
*The Universal House of Justice has spent many millions on the Center for the Study of the Sacred Texts, one of five huge buildings at the Baha'i World Centre, and this building was completed in the late mid 1980s, but has yet to be opened to date (2016 A.D.). Why? They aren't saying.
*The Universal House of Justice has directed that Baha'is leaving Iran "hand over" to them all Baha'i and Bábí books published before 1970, and not to keep copies (this is not always obeyed).
*The Universal House of Justice "suppresses" the writings of The Bab (except for carefully chosen "Selections"), and the holy writings of Quddús (all of them), and much of the writings of Baha'u'llah (at least half of the Tablets are still unpublished) and many of the books of the early Bábís and Baha'is because they ABSOLUTELY CONTRADICT current Baha'i teachings on many subjects (reincarnation, Jesus literally arising from the dead, Muhammad as the Last of the Prophets and Messengers, etc.).
*The Aghsan (blood descendants of Baha'u'llah) are still alive today, by the hundreds, and claim that 'Abdu'l-Baha and Shoghi Effendi were "opportunists" who "changed" the Baha'i Faith according to their own personal desires, and they also claim that Baha'u'llah was NOT a Messenger, NOT a Prophet, but a "Perfect Man", a Sufi Master who wished to become the Founder of a new Sufi order, called the Beha'i Order, consisting of Shi'ite Muslims, and patterned after the Naqshbandi Order of Sunni Muslims: which Baha'u'llah joined and was a member of in Sulimaniyyah, Iraq, for two years in the 1850s, when he took the name Dervish Muhammad Irani.
*Baha'u'llah wore the crown of a Sufi Master of the Naqshbandi Order from 1857 until his death in 1892.
*The Universal House of Justice suppress the truth because they know that if the Baha'is knew the truth, most of them would leave the Faith, and the Members of the House still believe "they" will save the world from a nuclear holocaust, but only if they keep the Baha'i Faith expanding.
And now you know the TRUTH about the Baha'i Faith.
And ye shall know the TRUTH, and the TRUTH shall set you free!
Before the End of 1000 Literal Years
When Baha'u'llah wrote in the Kitab-i-Iqan (Book of Certitude) that "if anyone should claim a Cause before the end of 1000 literal years" that he is a liar, Baha'u'llah was NOT referring to 1000 solar years from 1863 (his declaration), but 1000 lunar years from 1260 A.H. when the Imaam Mehdi disappeared (went into "occultation") to 1260 A.H. (1844 A.D.) when The Báb declared he was the "Gate" of the Hidden Imaam, and when Quddus secretly discovered he was the Hidden Imaam, but did not publicize that until 1849; just before his martyrdom at the Tabarsi shrine. Baha'u'llah wrote the Book of Certitude to convince the uncle of The Báb that the Day of Resurrection (a new cycle in which Muhammad, Fatimah, the 12 Imaams, and the 4 Gates "returned") had come, in 1260 A.H. (i.e. 1844 A.D.). Shoghii Effendi "changed" the meaning of those verses!
The Vision of Baha'u'llah
Baha'u'llah envisioned a spiritual order of men and women that would walk a Sufi "Path of Holiness" in pursuit of "dying in God"; which is also called being "Born Again". When a man or woman "died in God" it means they have "killed" their own ego, it means they have annihilated "satan" within. Such a man or woman goes to Mawlawkoot (Kingdom of Angels) at death. There is absolutely nothing in the Writings of Baha'u'llah about the establishment of a "World Order of Baha'u'llah" or any Federalist state. Baha'u'llah envisioned an International Tribunal to settle disputes between independent and sovereign countries. There is a World Court in The Hague in the Netherlands, and Baha'is had nothing to do with its creation or establishment.
Shoghi Effendi was not a religious man, unless it was for "show". He "changed" the doctrines of Baha'u'llah, and created a NGO (non-government organization) that seeks to establish a Baha'i World State called "The World Order of Baha'u'llah" or "the New World Order". Shoghi Effendi invented "the Baha'i Faith" as a new Religion outside of Islaam. He "mistranslated" key portions of the Most Holy Book of Baha'u'llah and other Writings; according to the Baha'i translators who were "excommunicated" by the Universal House of Justice (council of nine men who govern the Faith) and also according to the three sons of Baha'u'llah that were excommunicated by 'Abdu'l-Baha. Four people (four Baha'is and one non-Baha'i) made translations of the Most Holy Book before Shoghi Effendi did. All their translations "agree" on every point. Shoghi's translation mostly agrees, but varies from the others in some "key" Verses. Compare Shoghi Effendi's translation of the Most Holy Book with earlier translations online and you'll see what we mean. Shoghi's translation is often at variance with what Baha'u'llah acutally wrote.
Shoghi Effendi was introduced to "World Federalism" in college, probably first at the Protestant College of Syria (now American University of Beirut). Shoghi was not a religious man at all. He was a "closeted" yet "active" homosexual; according to the entire family of Baha'u'llah, and his own early secretaries, all of whom he later excommunicated. Many post-World War One liberal college professors had joined the World Federalist Movement, and spoke about it to their students. Shoghi planned to turn the Baha'i Faith, then a Tawwassuf (mystical Path) within Shi'ite Islaam, into an "independent World Religion" which taught and advocated the very same principles and goals as the World Federalists.
Remember, the religion of The Báb was ISLAM, and the religion of Baha'u'llah was ISLAM! Both taught that Muhammad (pbuh) was the Last and Final Messenger of God. Both used "Faith of God" and "Cause of God" as alternate names for Islam, which were common Shi'ite nicknames for Islam in their day. In order for Shoghi to "change" the Baha'i Movement from a spiritual movement of "Mystical Travelers" walking a Sufi Path to Oneness with God, into a New World Religion that played-down the mystical teachings and emphasized the "social" teachings, with the ultimate goal the same as the World Federalists, he had to do the following:
*Excommunicate the entire family of Baha'u'llah and 'Abdu'l-Baha except for himself: including their children and infants.
*Threaten Baha'is with eternal shunning if they even "talked" with the "Covenant-breakers" (all those who opposed him or even criticized him).
*Mistranslate "key" sections of the Kitab-i-Aqdas (Most Holy Book) and other Baha'i holy writings, when Verses opposed the "new" teachings he was bringing forth.
*Refuse to allow the translation of 90% of the holy books of The Báb; allowing only brief carefully selected excerpts to be published.
*Refusing to translate or allow the translation of any of the holy books of Quddús: Whom The Báb clerely identified as the "Remnant of God" (return of the Imam Mehdi)
*Excommunicate all of his personal secretaries (including Ahgsan Rabanni) because they complained among themselves that he was "changing" the holy texts, and also complaining about his personal life (his frequent not-completely-secret trips to Switzerland for his homosexual liaisons).
*Refusing to leave a Will designating a successor as required by Baha'i Holy Law (or, if he did leave a Will, his wife destroyed it).
The sad part is, that Shoghi Effendi was successful in his goal.
Islaam Replaced By Shoghiism
The Seers (Shaykh Ahmad and Siyyid Kazim) taught and wrote about literal "cities" in Paradise, and described them in great detail. Baha'is today would be absolutely SHOCKED to read some of things those Seers had to say; which is why the House has forbid Baha'i translators from publishing their translations.
Baha'u'llah called Paradise and Hell-fire "metaphors" of being close or far from God in this life, but "reality" in the Afterlife. The Seers, and The Báb, and Quddús, and Baha'u'llah, called their religion "Islaam". They believed Muhammad (pbuh) was the Last of the Messengers and Prophets for this planet. The Aghsan (younger sons of Baha'u'llah) believed exactly the same!
'Abdu'l-Baha came up with eleven "Principles" (Oneness of God, Elimination of Prejudice, Equality of Genders, Race Unity, Universal Education, etc.) that he found liberal Westerners (non-muslims) would respond to well. He soon found that discussions of Islaamic prophecy, Razool, Nabi, Wali, Gates, Barzakh, and such things as that, both utterly confused and bored the wealthy educated liberal British and Americans who wrote to him or in some cases actually came to see him in Haifa. These wealthy American and British liberals wanted to "change the world" for the better. They weren't interested in "deep" Shi'ite Islamic theosophy. They were interested in World Peace and Race Unity and Esperanto. 'Abdu'l-Baha gave them what they wanted, and, in return, they gave him what "he" wanted.
Shoghi Effendi became Guardian in 1921, based upon what Ruth White believed was a "forged" portion of the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha, and Shoghi became "interpreter" of the Baha'i Revelation. He went even farther than 'Abdu'l-Baha did with "The Principles". To 'Abdu'l-Baha, the Principles were "talking points"; a way to get liberal Westerners interested in the faith. Shoghi Effendi went even further. He "watered-down" the doctrines, making the Faith about 9, 10, 11, 12, or 13 "Principles" that we must "work" to establish worldwide, along with the "World Order of Baha'u'llah" or "New World Order" which is a Baha'i World State ruled over by a "World Executive" who commands a "World Police Force" that apparently has all lethal weapons (including nuclear) under his control, who is "reigned in" only by the Universal House of Justice acting as the Legislative/Judicial power to the World Executive's "executive" power.
The Baha'is today (thanks to Shoghi Effendi) will say that "Heaven" is being close to God (via the Manifestation) and "Hell" is being far from God (i.e. far from the Manifestation). If you ask a Baha'i "Is there a literal heaven or hell in the Afterlife?" they will look confused; with some saying "no" and some saying that "heaven" means "feeling good" in the Afterlife because you're work to establish the Principles and "hell" means "feeling bad" because you didn't work to establish the Principles. They will say: "The Afterlife can't be described or imagined, so why try?" They will say: "Don't worry about the Afterlife, we'll find out when we get there, just worry about the problems of the world in this life, and work to establish the Principles worldwide!"
On the other hand, Shaykh Ahmad and Siyyid Kazim both taught that Paradise was a literal and real dimension (not a geographical location as the Shi'ites believed but a literal Unseen Realm) in the Afterlife, and described the "cities" in Paradise in great detail, in their books (which the House now refuses to publish). The books by Shaykh Ahmad and Siyyid Kazim Rashti have been published in Arabic, and you can find these books for sale online in Arabic. Why hasn't the House (UHJ) published them in English? You can't even ask them that question! Baha'is who do, soon discover that their membership has been "removed" by the House. They are not informed of this until after their membership in the Faith has been "removed".
The ISLAAM of the Seers, The Báb, Quddús, and Baha'u'llah, has been "replaced" by a new religion called "SHOGHIISM"; based upon his own personal whims and philosophy, and the World Federalism (New World Order) he learned about at university. Shoghi was not a religious man at all. He probably believed in God in the same way the Monists do: the intelligent "Force" behind Nature. He believed he could "use" religion as a means to an end: the New World Order which he called "The World Order of Baha'u'llah". Several years after the death of 'Abdu'l-Baha, he forged the last portion of the Will and Testament, giving himself Pope-like power and "infallibility".
'Abdu'l-Baha nowhere, in any of his writings or pilgrim's notes, says anything about Shoghi Effendi being his successor. 'Abdu'l-Baha envisioned the Baha'i Cause (he never called it a "religion") as democratic, with an elected "International House of Justice" presiding over it. The "twenty-four Guardians" that 'Abdu'l-Baha speak of are NOT 24 successors of his, but refer to the 18 "Letters of the Living" and "Five Elders" who would be revealed later. Shoghi Effendi "invented" the concept of "Guardian" as an infallible "Pope" with himself as the unquestioned and infallible RULER of the Baha'is worldwide. He "invented" the Baha'i Faith as a new world religion, with The Báb as the Forerunner of Baha'u'llah (he was actually the Forerunner of Quddús, the Imaam Mehdi). He "invented" Baha'u'llah as a new Prophet and Messenger of God, although Baha'u'llah himself wrote that Muhammad (pbuh) was the Final Messenger and Prophet!
'Abdu'l-Baha was a MUSLIM! He worshipped at a Muslim masjid (mosque) every Friday, in line with other Muslims. He saw no contradiction in being a "Baha'i", and also a "Muslim"; just like a "Lutheran" is also a "Christian", or a "Sufi" thinks himself also and foremost a "Muslim". 'Abdu'l-Baha attended a Muslim masjid (mosque) in Akka every Friday afternoon, and performed Muslim Salat (prostrating prayers). He was buried according to Muslim burial rites. Shoghi Effendi despised the rigidity of Islaam, and "invented" the Baha'i Faith as a new world religion with emphasis on 11 (or 9, or 10, or 12, or 13) social-reform "Principles" and a World Government called "The World Order of Baha'u'llah" (which Baha'u'llah himself never envisioned). Shoghi Effendi "invented" a new religion!
On the other hand, the Religion of Baha'u'llah was ISLAAM, Muhammad (pbuh) was the Final Prophet, and the purpose of religion was NOT a "World Government" nor in establishing a set of social-reform Principles (that was a side-note), but the purpose of Islaam was reaching the highest level of spirituality (the 7th Valley) in life so that one could enter Paradise at death. Baha'u'llah did envision a "International Tribunal" that settled disputes between sovereign (independent) nations, but that was a "side note" to the real message of Islaam, the Final Religion and Revelation of God.
Mankind's Only Hope
Baha'is are taught that the Baha'i Faith (i.e. the World Order of Baha'u'llah) is "mankind's only hope" for world peace. If they abandon the Faith, then Mankind is doomed! Again, dear Reader, please understand this:
1|| Shoghi Effendi "invented" the "World Order of Baha'u'llah". It is a man-made invention, and not of God.
2|| According to Shi'ite Muslim prophecies, "world peace" will be established by the Hidden Imaam, when he comes out of "occultation" and leads vast Muslim armies, and Jesus will come soon after him.
3 || The Hidden Imaam is Quddús, who will "return" with a new name, born of a new mother, sometime in the future.
4 || A combination of the coming of the Hidden Imaam, and the second advent of Jesus, will bring "world peace" to the world, and not by Baha'is trying to establish "The Principles" worldwide through talking about them at Baha'i Feasts and Devotionals, or by their support of the United Nations.
5 || The Christians of the world will recognize Jesus when He returns, but He will tell them "I am a Muslim" which will cause the Christians to realize that Islaam is the Religion of God, and they will convert to Islaam.
Baha'i efforts to convert the world to the Baha'i Faith will fail. Baha'i efforts to establish the World Order of Baha'u'llah, will fai: BECAUSE GOD ID NOT BEHIND IT! Instead of trying to establish "Shoghiism" worldwide, Baha'is should concentrate on "transforming" their own soul, and going to Paradise at death. That is what Wali Baha'u'llah, the Perfect Man and Sufi Master, commanded his followers to do! That is the purpose and goal of the Behai Sufi Order that he wanted to form. Please...STOP giving money to the Universal House of Justice so they may build massive buildings and gardens. Stop giving money to the NSA. Give money to a recognized charity that actually "helps" people.
We Are Burning In Hell Now!
The Muhaddas (Jamshid Rohani) taught that any mortal life on a planet where the Ultra-violent rays of the Sun "burns" and ages our skin, where there is famine and injustice and war and violence, where "demons" (i.e. socio-paths/criminals) torment us, is "burning in Hell-fire". We are, in fact, "burning in Hell-fire" now, and during each mortal life on any hellish world like Earth where there is famine, earthquake, injustice, war, violence, crime, deformity, disease, death, and evil selfish souls who torment others. Only by walking daily a path of holiness and reaching the 7th Spiritual Tone of the Soul may we escape the Wheel of Rebirth on these hellish planets, and be "born above" into the Kingdom of Heaven.
Jamshid also taught that between death and reincarnation, all of us dwell in one of seven "dimensions" or "dreamworlds" with the highest being Paradise, an extremely pleasant "dream" and the lowest being Tartarus, which would be like the worst nightmare you can imagine; with five dream-worlds in between. Which dream-world we find ourselves in at death, depends upon our "soul-tone" or the "level" of our spirituality. We "increase" our soul-tone (spirituality) by spiritual practices: daily prayer, Zikr (chanting the 99 Names of Allah), honesty, reverence, meditation, Kriya Yoga, reading the Holy Books, and, for men, "continence" (keeping one's 'seed' within). These spiritual practices increases the "tone" of the soul, and the higher the "tone" at death, the better the dream-world in Barzakh (the Spirit-World). Paradise (the 7th dimension in the Spirit-World) is just a way-station between death and being "born above" into the Kingdom of Heaven, which are literal planets where the mind controls matter.
The teachings of Jamshid Rohani were not "guesses" nor were they based upon what Muslim scholars said or wrote. They did not come from words he read found in the Books of Hadith, nor for any other book. His teachings came from his "interviews" of many Prophets and Saints that he communicated with, in the Third Heaven, during his many OBEs (out-of-body experiences). The Apostle Paul also went to the Third Heaven, and heard words "not lawful for a man to utter". We invite you to discover more about the teachings of the Muhaddas Jamshid Rohani.
Dear Baha'i Readers,
What is today called "The Baha'i Faith" is really a man-made religion, and that "man" was Shoghi Effendi. Baha'u'llah had no intention to leave Islaam and start a New World Religion. He wanted to start a new Sh'ite Muslim spiritual order, fashioned upon the Naqshbandi Sufi Order of the Sunni Muslims. As we have seen The Báb never claimed to be a Messenger of God, but rather the "Five Gate" (fifth "channel") of the Hidden Imaam; who reincarnated as Quddus, who died at the Tabrisi Shrine in 1849, in direct and clear fulfillment of Shi'ite Muslim prophecy. No man-made religion can bring world peace! World peace will come when Jesus returns, and not before that. Jesus will return just after Quddús returns: with a new name, born of a new mother.
Baha'u'llah clearly taught that Jesus arose from the dead, as the Gospels report. Mirza Valiyyu'llah Khan Varqa (son of the Baha'i poet Varqa) wrote:"My father was much with Baha'u'llah. One night Baha'u'llah, as He walked back and forth in His room, said to my father:The 'Power of the Great Ether' was the power to arise from the dead, and to appear on earth again. Baha'u'llah claimed that the Spirit of God (Jesus) was "in" him, and thus could sometimes "write" in the Name of Jesus, as The Báb often wrote in the Name of the Hidden Imaam. Baha'u'llah (as Jesus) wrote:
'At stated periods souls are sent to earch by the Mighty God with what we call the Power of the Great Ether. And they who possess this power can do anything: they have all Power....Jesus Christ had this Power. The people thought of Him as a poor young man, Whom they had crucified; but He possessed the Power of the Great Ether, therefore He could not remain underground. This ethereal Power arose and quickened the world." ( The Chosen Highway 3:1)"The Kingdom of God circleth around Him and it is because of His Love that the Cross was adored with My body. Verily, I rose from the dead to complete my mention of His Name amongst men. O people of the Gospel! Do not make mention of Me (Jesus) when you have turned away from my Father, the All-Glorious."The teaching by 'Abdu'l-Baha that Jesus never arose but that the "body of Christ" (His disciples) became motivated after three days of doubt, is a false teaching and is contrary to what the Gospels actually report. Jesus performed literal miracles, not "metaphorical" ones like Shoghi Effendi and Mary Maxwell taught. The Gospels are narratives of what actually happened; not "mere parables" that 'Abdu'l-Baha and Shoghi Effendi could "explain away" when it suited them.
(Revealed on the Day of Ridwan, published in Tasbih-va-Tahlil, Baha'i Publishing Trust of India, pp.142-155, provisional translation by Khazeh Fananapazir)
Wny is the Universal House of Justice "suppressing" the holy writings (publishing only "selections"), refusing to publish the holy tablets of Quddús, removing the membership of Baha'i translators who translate "unauthorized" holy tablets, and telling Baha'is traveling from Iran to the West to "surrender" to them all Baha'i books published before 1970, without making copies? The reason is simple: they sincerely believe that "they" will save the world from World War Three, and they are convinced that Shoghi Effendi was right about everything he wrote, and they "know" there are "problems" but they don't want "you" to know, and it would be "best" that "you" didn't know, because it would cause you to be "troubled" and perhaps lose your "faith" in them and perhaps in the "Institutions" as well. That is the reason why. They are doing this to help "you".
Lost History of the Baha'i Faith
If you would like to read the real history of the Baha'i Faith after the death of Baha'u'llah, then we suggest you get a copy of Lost History by Shua'u'llah, the grandson of Baha'u'llah. It is available via Amazon.com online. Shua'u'llah was the son of Mohammad Ali Effendi, the second son of Baha'u'llah and leader of the "Unitarians" (family of Baha'u'llah who were "united" against 'Abdu'l-Baha and Shoghi Effendi).
Lost History by Shua'u'llah
No More Money To Haifa
Do not follow the man-made religion of SHOGHIISM; an invention of an irreligious man and hypocrite who "invented" what is today called "The Baha'i Faith". Do not send your money to the Baha'i World Centre, which spends it on "gloriously" expensive buildings and gardens, which cost hundreds of million of dollars! Do not send your money to your National Spiritual Assembly. Rather, spend a portion of your income helping those who need it by giving it to the following established charities:
*Feed the Children
The Qur'an says that Believers should spend two per cent of their income on "zakat" (charity). Not to build glorious gardens and buildings in Haifa, nor stylishly "chíc" yet totally impractical Baha'i temples in Chile, but for "charity" to those who need it. The Universal House of Justice doesn't need more "millions" to build more glorious Greek-like buildings in Haifa! Zakat is for those who "need" our help; not for super-expensive buildings and gardens for tourists.
How To Resign from the Baha'i Faith
If you no longer believe in "The Baha'i Faith" of Shoghi Effendi, then send in your letter of resignation by email. Make sure to include your full name and Baha'i I.D. number. Send your Letter of Resignation to:
Just say: "I hereby resign from the Baha'i Faith. I no longer believe that the Baha'i Faith is reflective of the actual teachings of The Báb and Baha'u'llah. My name is ________________. My Baha'i I.D. number is ________________. Please remove me from the Membership rolls as soon as possible. I will no longer make any donation to any Baha'i fund. I will no longer attend any Feast or Baha'i-related meeting. If I am contacted by an Auxiliary Board member, I will not reply. Please do this without delay. Please confirm to me by email when this action has been completely. Thank you."
If you live outside the continental U.S., then either email your NSA or mail them your Letter of Resignation.
Don't follow Shoghi Effendi and the nine men of the Universal House of Justice. Follow God, and your own spirit (conscience), and do good every day!
No Response (Yet) To This Article
I ask the Universal House of Justice in Haifa and/or the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is of the United States (NSAUS), or any Continental Counselor, to make an official "reply" to this article! I encourage it. Even the Research Department at the Baha'i World Centre should make a reply. To date, no reply has been made. Not even a "mention". They have been sent copies of this article. The American Baha'i magazine has been sent a copy. No reply. The House does not want "YOU" to read this. The National Spiritual Assembly does not want "you" to read this! To reply to it, would only let the Baha'is know it exists, and they don't want that. They don't want Baha'is reading this! To any Baha'i reading this, if you can find "errors" in this article let me know, and I will remove or correct the errors.
Instead of writing a rebuttal to this article, the Baha'i authorities will try legal means to have this website shut down. Writing a rebuttal will only inform Baha'is this website exists. They don't want that. They'd rather shut it down completely.
Now you know the Truth About the Baha'i Faith. Thank you for reading our article. Please share this article with others.
