Every activity of the Baha’is is just for teaching the Baha’i faith

Baha'is always claim that the aim of their Social and economic development activities are for the betterment of the society, for the empowerment of women, to lift the levels of Jr. youth through moral education. But the reality is exactly opposite. When one reads the writings and the actual practices, we find that every activity of the Baha'is is directed towards one and only one goal and that is “Teaching the Baha'i Faith.”

One should not simply say that there is a lot of hypocrisy in the Baha'i Faith; rather, the Baha'i Faith is Hypocrisy personified. This hypocrisy is embedded in the foundations of the Baha'i Faith.

1- "Every activity... is for the purpose of teaching the Faith and confirming people."

The all-important thing of course is that every activity... is for the purpose of teaching the Faith and confirming people. Therefore you and the other Bahá'ís should watch the situation very closely. You should study those who attend the meetings, and when you find one who you feel would become a strong and active Bahá'í, then you should concentrate on teaching him. Thus, if you are able to confirm some souls, you will have rendered distinguished and outstanding service. Actually this is the goal of all such activities in all of the universities.

(From a letter dated 1 June 1955 written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi to an individual believer)


2- Gradually and Tactfully convert the people: Baha’i Guardian Shoghi Effendi

…the upper classes … need the right type of people to approach them, and a method that can suit their mentality. Our teaching methods should allow a certain degree of elasticity in establishing contacts with various types of individual seekers. Every inquirer has to be approached from his own angle. Those who are essentially of the mystic type should first be given those teachings of the Cause which emphasize the nature and value of spiritual realities; while those who are practically minded and of a positive type are naturally more ready and inclined to accept the social aspect of the Teachings. But of course, gradually the entire Message, in all its aspects and with the full implications it entails, should be explained to the newcomer. For to be a believer means to accept the Cause in its wholeness, and not to adhere to some of its teachings.
However, as already stated, this ought to be done gradually and tactfully. For conversion is after all a slow process.

(From a letter dated 28 December 1936 written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi to an individual believer)

3- Sacred obligation is to deliver the message to their fellowmen at once, and on as large a scale as possible.

There is so much suffering, such a great and desperate need for a true remedy and the Bahá’ís should realize their sacred obligation is to deliver the message to their fellowmen at once, and on as large a scale as possible. If they fail to do so, they are really partly responsible for prolonging the agony of humanity.

(Shoghi Effendi, Lights of Guidance, p. 127)

4- The UHJ in one of its message says:

The cornerstone of the foundation of all Bahá’í activity is teaching the Cause.

(The Universal House of Justice, Baha’i World Centre, March 3, 1977)

5- In a facebook post one active Haifan Baha'i states the following

Just a small reminder of what the House wants each and every single one of us to do NOW:

  1. Become friends with all of your neighbours on your street and in your neighborhood. Invite them over to cups of tea and get to know them and go and visit them in their house. Take them a food to enjoy together with your cup of tea.
  2. Host a children's class in your house and invite your neighbours children to all attend. You do not have to run it, u just have to host it.
  3. Host a REGULAR devotional gathering in your house. Invite your neighbours and their kids. Share prayers together from the Faith and from other sacred traditions to make it even more amazing. Try and get chants, kids prayer songs etc
  4. Help enthusiastic attendees setup regular devotional gatherings in their own homes AND accompany them in this. Help your friend to help their friends to run regular devotional meetings in their house. This process will multiply until the whole world is in a devotional gathering.
  5. Host a Junior Youth Class in your House. Invite the neighbours JYs. Once you are friends with neighbours you can tell them about the JY programme.
  6. Once the children and and JY start coming then offer to train their parents to become Childrens class teachers and JY animators.
  7. Train the new teachers and animators and help them start a childrens class and JY in their own home (if they are far away enough in the neighborhood).
  8. Accompany the new teachers and animators on their path of service towards spiritualising our new generation. Help them to do everything you just did i.e. to get them to eventually also train children class teachers and JY animators AND to accompany their new teachers and animators to setup JY programme and childrens classes in THEIR own homes. This process is now growing exponentially.
  9. Repeat Cycle.
This is all we have to do. This is all the house wants us to do. If we do this the whole world will become involved in a core activity. World peace will finally come. The words of God do the work for us. All we have to do is the logistics.

The time is now. Get up stand up for your right to live in a world which is at peace. We can have world peace in ONE generation. How exciting! Are not proud to be blessed with a concrete plan on how world peace can be achieved!? Nobody else is doing this! Only us! So time to get up and stand up for YOUR RIGHT to live in a world at peace.

Allah'u'abha all and may we fill our cups with the blessings which rain down~
