Early UK Bahá’ís

In the late 1890’s, while ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, the son of Bahá'u'lláh and His successor, was still a prisoner in ‘Akká, a small number of Westerners who were learning about the Bahá’í Faith made journeys to meet with ‘Abdu’l-Bahá and deepen their understanding of this new faith.

The Bahá’í Faith came to the United Kingdom as a result of those extraordinary Western visitors who, after spending time with ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, returned home and began to share the Bahá’í teachings throughout Europe and America.
