Bahá’í Communities throughout Scotland joined all their sister communities throughout the world in celebrating the “Twin Holy Days” on the 1st and 2nd November.  The “Twin Holy Days” are the “Twin Birthdays” of the founders of the Bahá’í Faith,  Bahá’u’lláh and The Bab, and are celebrated on these two consecutive days.

 Work is normally suspended on these days and all the communities gather together and hold commemorative events including Devotionals, organise parties, and various children activities. 

The Birth of the Báb (meaning the Gate) in Shiraz, Persia, in 1819 was the herald who prepared the way for Bahá’u’lláh, the founder of the Bahá’í Faith. The Báb called on the people to prepare themselves for the coming day of God.

The Birth of Bahá’u’lláh (meaning the Glory of God”) in Núr, Persia, in 1817 announced in 1863 that He was God’s messenger for this age. His teachings and sacred writings are the basis of the Bahá’í Faith, an inclusive Faith that has grown with believers in nearly every country and territory across the planet.
