that throughout history the Creator has revealed Himself to humanity through a series of
Divine Messengers. These Messengers include:
He, She or It?
Like previous Messengers of God, Bahá'u'lláh used the masculine pronoun when referring to the
Creator. To have done anything else would have violated all conventions of Arabic--the
principal language in which Bahá'u'lláh wrote.
Bahá'u'lláh stated explicitly, however, that God is beyond any
comparison to human form or gender. Accordingly, the issue of whether to refer to God as
"He," "She," or "It" does not arise in Bahá'í discussions.
