Abstract The Baha'i Faith's continuities and discontinuities with Islam. This is the only Baha'i-related article in The Encyclopaedia of the Qur’an.
Notes The nature of this publication is such that the Baha'i Faith is treated in almost purely Islamic terms. However, the Babi religion is described as "super-Islamic" by dint of its intense Imamocentrism (as pointed out by Todd Lawson), while the Baha'i Faith is characterized as "supra-Islamic" by virtue of its universalism.

Also available in the Encyclopaedia of the Qur’an Online.
