    I was born into the bahai faith. Im very fortunate to have this faith.

  3. kadams says:

    The Bahai Faith is “not” an offshoot of Shia Islam …it is an independent religion the came out of (evolved ) out of Islam the same way Christianity did with Judeaism…otherwise good news article

  4. Al says:

    The Baha’i Faith is not just about the fulfillment of shia sect of Islam. If you wanted to know you can investigate. Also in the interview, Baha’u’llah specifically goes to the Mount Carmel.
