From Wiki it seems to be a mixture of all religions but it seems to be like most, all waiting on the next messenger.........
The BahĂˇ'Ă* Faith is a religion founded by BahĂˇ'u'llĂˇh in nineteenth-century Persia, emphasizing the spiritual unity of all humankind. There are an estimated five to six million BahĂˇ'Ă*s around the world in more than 200 countries and territories.
BahĂˇ'Ă* teachings emphasize the underlying unity of the major world religions. Religious history is seen to have unfolded through a series of divine messengers, each of whom established a religion that was suited to the needs of the time and the capacity of the people. These messengers have included Abraham, the Buddha, Jesus, Muhammad and others, including most recently BahĂˇ'u'llĂˇh. In BahĂˇ'Ă* belief, each messenger taught of the next, and BahĂˇ'u'llĂˇh's life and teachings fulfill the end-time promises of previous scriptures. Humanity is understood to be involved in a process of collective evolution, and the need of the present time is for the gradual establishment of peace, justice and unity on a global scale.
The word "BahĂˇ'Ă*" (/bĂ¦hɒːʔiː/, /bəˈhai/, Persian: بهائی) is used either as an adjective to refer to the BahĂˇ'Ă* Faith or as a term for a follower of BahĂˇ'u'llĂˇh, and the word is not a noun meaning the religion as a whole. It is derived from the Arabic BahĂˇ’, meaning "glory" or "splendour". The term "Bahaism" (or "Baha'ism") has been used in the past but is fading from use.
