Ai Woon’s Story

I grew up in Malaysia. My family practised the Chinese traditions and I was educated in a Catholic school. When I was sixteen I started to investigate world religions mainly because some of my friends had converted to other faiths.
I heard about the Bahá'í Faith from a friend and after reading some books about the Faith I decided I wanted to be a Bahá'í. I particularly liked the teachings about the oneness of religion because I had often wondered why there were so many religions. The Bahá'í teaching that all religions come from the same source answered my question. Bahá'u'lláh revealed many beautiful prayers which we can turn to at different times in our lives. His religious and moral teachings are expounded in His writings and as there is no clergy in the Bahá'í Faith we have the duty to explore these ourselves. Reading them has always been a source of joy and comfort to me.

Ai Woon’s choice from the Bahá’í writings

. . . The fundamental purpose animating the Faith of God and His Religion is to safeguard the interests and promote the unity of the human race, and to foster the spirit of love and fellowship amongst men. Suffer it not to become a source of dissension and discord, of hate and enmity. This is the straight Path, the fixed and immovable foundation. Whatsoever is raised on this foundation, the changes and chances of the world can never impair its strength, nor will the revolution of countless centuries undermine its structure. . .
