Re: A Baha'i Wedding? HELP!

Thank you everyone =) No, we are not rushing the wedding because of the 3 month requirement, as I know it does not apply to us, hehe. Though, knowing that other Baha'is in the world are scrambling around just as fast as me and still pulling it off is actually quite comforting. We've decided to get m...

Need some help...

Hello all, Right now I'm in a period of investigation of the Baha'i Faith, though I am fairly sure that I will join. But, I think I'm getting to the harder parts of believing in God- namely, why do bad things happen to really good people? This will probably get overly personal, but I just feel very ...

Evolution?

Hello all! Here I am with yet another question. I am a strong believer in evolution, and from what I have read it seems like this could fit into the Baha'i Faith as well. But, in Some Answered Questions and The Baha'i Faith: The Emerging Global Religion it states that the human soul as been distinct...

Discussing the Faith with others...

Okay, I've got a question! I go to a forum board, and there is a Religion section on that (this is for teens, and young adults) and I'm often discussing things on that. I am a debater, I debate a lot of things, but I try to not get aggressive, and the Athiest particularly like to debate with me. So,...

Loving all of humanity?

Hi all, I am struggling with something right now and that would be the whole "loving everyone" part. To clarify, I'm not racist or anything like that, but I am having a really hard time not getting angry at people and bitter. For example, there is a co-worker that I am having a LOT of prob...

Re: Prayers/Fasting for "Not Offical" Baha'i

Brett, Thank you so, so much for that wonderful post! When I have a bit more time I will go check out those links you gave me, and I'll also go ahead and get a copy of "Hidden Words" and "Baha'u'llah in the New Era" like you suggested. :) Thank you for taking all that time to put...

Re: Prayers/Fasting for "Not Offical" Baha'i

Thank you all for your answers on the prayers! For some reason I got it in my head that I had to pray three times a day, but I think that just came from the confusion when finding out about the obligatory prayers and the fact that the medium one, if said, must be said three times. So, thanks for cle...

Re: Prayers/Fasting for "Not Offical" Baha'i

Thank you both for your responces on prayer, they were very helpful! I am feeling better already about that, especially after saying the Fasting prayer this morning. But, I wanted to ask- do Baha'is have to pray three times a day? I know that I have to say an obligatory prayer once a day (and 3 time...

Re: Baha'i take on developmental disabilities?

This is a bit off topic, kind of, as I am not responding to the oringinal poster's post, but instead the one afterwards. I actually have a question about the quote you provided out of the Kitab-i-aqdas "Every individual, no matter how handicapped and limited he may be, is under the obligation o...

Prayers/Fasting for "Not Offical" Baha'i

Hi all, The title may be confusing, so quick explaination - I have not declared, I am in my period of investigation, and still trying to figure a lot of things out. Just so you understand where I am coming from in these (probably odd) questions, I have never at any time in my life been part of an or...

Re: Some questions & concerns regarding the Baha'i Faith

Though I am not officially a Baha'i yet, I do also wonder about the shaved head bit. From what I know of Buddhist monks in Tibet shave their heads, and so that made me thing maybe it had something to do with worship. I got this from Wikipedia: "Tonsure is the practice of some Christian churches...

Re: Some questions about the faith

Thank you very much for all your answers, coatofmanycolours! So, then there is no real explaination for why women are not allowed to be elected, but just having confidence in writings? I will try, I have started to come to terms with this, and try to think of reasons why this might be, so I'm sure I...

Some questions about the faith

Hi all, I am quite new to the faith, and I have not declared yet. I have a lot of questions I need answered, and I’m sure I’ll think of more later, but this is what I have thought of right now! So, please help! A) Why are women not allowed to be elected into the Universal House of Justice? B) I have...
