‘Abdu’l-Bahá—the eldest son of Bahá’u’lláh and leader of the Bahá’í Faith between 1892 and 1921—was a friend, guide and confidant to all humanity. Those who encountered Him recognized a character of matchless virtue, an all-embracing love and altruism, extraordinary spiritual acuity, and superhuman knowledge.

2021 marks the centenary of the passing of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. All around the world, Bahá’ís and their friends are taking the opportunity to familiarize themselves with—and deepen their understanding of—His life, His mission and the example He offers as a pattern of right living to all people, for all time.

In this course, based on the new book Ambassador to Humanity: A selection of testimonials and tributes to ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Robert Weinberg and Wendi Momen will guide participants through the life and work of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá as others saw Him, aiming to assist them in their personal, profound reflection on His exemplary qualities and achievements.
