ABSTRACTThe Bahá'í Faith's continuities and discontinuities with Islam. This is the only Bahá'í-related article in The Encyclopaedia of the Qur’an.
NOTES Also available in the Encyclopaedia of the Qur’an Online. See also the longer 2016 version of this article, also posted at academia.edu.

The nature of this publication is such that the Bahá'í Faith is treated in almost purely Islamic terms. However, the Bábí religion is described as "super-Islamic" by dint of its intense Imamocentrism (as pointed out by Todd Lawson), while the Bahá'í Faith is characterized as "supra-Islamic" by virtue of its universalism.
