persian faith

Baha Ullah (Mirza Husain Ali Nuri; 1817–92), Persian religious leader. A disciple of Babism, a sect that split off from Islam in 1848, he was exiled to Turkey by the Persian government in 1863. In that year he proclaimed himself the Promised One awaited by the Babists. He later founded the Baha'i faith, authoring its basic text, Kitabi Ikan, or Book of Certitude.
