What Bahá’ís Believe

Universal Peace

Introduction

The Great Peace towards which people of goodwill throughout the centuries have inclined their hearts, of which seers and poets for countless generations have expressed their vision, and for which from age to age the sacred scriptures of mankind have constantly held the promise, is now at long last within the reach of the nations. For the first time in history it is possible for everyone to view the entire planet, with all its myriad diversified peoples, in one perspective. World peace is not only possible but inevitable.

The well-being of mankind, its peace and security, are unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established.
Bahá’u’lláh
