*Abdu’l-Baha (1844-1921), eldest son of Baha’u’llah and His chosen successor, was known as an ambassador of peace, a champion of justice, an advocate for race amity and equality and the leading exponent of a new Faith. Through a series of epoch-making travels to Africa, North America and Europe,`Abdu’l-Bahá–by word and example–proclaimed with persuasiveness and force the essential principles of His Father’s religion. Upon His death ten thousand people–Jews, Christians, and Muslims from all denominations–gathered on Mount Carmel in the Holy Land to mourn his passing. Today He is embraced by more than 5 million Baha’is as the perfect Exemplar of what it means to be a Baha’i.
