Religion is quite possibly one of the single most influential concepts in our history as human

beings. It would be difficult to imagine any community without the existence of a variety of religious

groups. Religion is one of the most fundamental ways that individuals and communities organize their

lives. As such, it has a huge impact on how those individuals and religious groups perceive of how they

should act in the world. Specifically, religion contributes to strong communities in three fundamental

ways. Firstly, religion provides spiritual, social, psychological and often material support for

individuals and families. It helps people make sense of their lives, as well as their role in their families

and in their communities. Secondly, religion creates a community in which people identify with each

other and care for each other based on their shared beliefs and commitments. Lastly, it also provides
material resources for less advantaged. Hence religion, in addition to motivating people to serve others,

also provides important organizational structures through which people can do volunteer work and

otherwise interact with, and strengthen their communities.


Following the coming of the Manifestation of God, extraordinary progress occurs in the world.

Reaching to the roots of human motivation, His teachings awaken in whole populations capacities to

contribute to the advancement of civilization to an extent never before possible. They also inspire

breath-taking achievements in all fields of human endeavour and elicit from His followers

extraordinary qualities of heroism, self-sacrifice and self-discipline. Universal codes of

law and institutional systems are created that bind people together in ever larger and more complex


Thus—as the driving force of the civilizing process and the primary agent of human

development—religion has the power both to nurture moral character and profoundly influence social

relationships. Religion also provides the teachings and unifying power by which entire societies can

achieve order and stability. And it is the Word of God that, alone, “can claim the distinction of being

endowed with the capacity required for so great and far-reaching a change.”

The indispensability of religion to social order has repeatedly been demonstrated by its direct

effect on laws and morality. When the lamp of religion is obscured, the result is chaos and confusion

and the “lights of fairness and justice, of tranquillity and peace cease to shine.”

The separations and conflicts between people, carried out in the name of religion, are contrary

to its true nature and purpose. “If religion becomes a cause of dislike, hatred and division, it werebetter
to be without it, and to withdraw from such a religion would be a truly religious act,” said ‘Abdu’l-

Bahá. “Any religion which is not a cause of love and unity is no religion.”
