Welcome

This is the official website of the Baha'is of Ann Arbor

We are Bahá'ís - members of the Bahá'í Faith. Bahá'ís are followers of Bahá'u'lláh.

We believe Bahá'u'lláh is the Promised One of all Ages. More information about Bahá'u'lláh can be found at Baha'i.us.

We believe that the Sacred Writings of the Bahá'í Faith provide Spiritual guidance that will enable the entire human race to live together in peace and unity, and to build the Kingdom of God on earth.

One of the major tenets of the Baha'i Faith is "Independent investigation of truth". Quotes related to the issues facing the human race today will be posted here on the front page. The source of those quotes will always be listed, so you can easily find it and read it in the context in which it was written.

We would love to hear from you!  Please contact us.  We will send you literature, personally invite you to our community activities, and answer your questions.

Moderation

"The civilization, so often vaunted by the learned exponents of arts and sciences, will, if allowed to overleap the bounds of moderation, bring great evil upon men. Thus warneth you He Who is the All-Knowing. If carried to excess, civilization will prove as prolific a source of evil as it had been of goodness when kept within the restraints of moderation."

Baha'u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, p. 341

A Decadent Society

"One of the signs of a decadent society, a sign which is very evident in the world today, is an almost frenetic devotion to pleasure and diversion, an insatiable thirst for amusement, a fanatical devotion to games and sport, a reluctance to treat any matter seriously, and a scornful, derisory attitude towards virtue and solid worth.
