A fundamental principle of the Bahá’í Faith is the harmony of religion and science. The Bahá’í Faith teaches that properly appreciated, science and religion will never conflict, as each are complementary ways of explaining truth, which on any issue must necessarily be singular. The teachings state that whenever conflict arises between religion and science it is due to human error; either through misinterpretation of religious scriptures or the lack of a more complete understanding of science. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá explained that religious teachings which are at variance with science should not be accepted; he explained that religion has to be reasonable since God endowed humankind with reason so that they can discover truth.

Mírzá Músá
Mírzá Músá surnamed Áqáy-i-Kalím was the only true brother of Bahá’u’lláh. He was later identified by Shoghi Effendi as one of the nineteen Apostles of Bahá’u’lláh. The life of Mírzá Músá was so inextricably bound up with that of Bahá’u’lláh himself, that his life and background mirror the life and travels of Bahá’u’lláh. He was an integral part of correspondence between Bahá’u’lláh and the Bahá’ís. He experienced the same imprisonment, exile, assaults, and degrading circumstances that were given to the small band of family members associated with Bahá’u’lláh and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. Bahá’u’lláh used Mírzá Músá as an example to show his respect for the law. In the history of the Bahá’í cause, Mírzá Músá stands out as a loyal and faithful follower until the end.

In the garden of thy heart plant naught but the rose of love, and from the nightingale of affection and desire loosen not thy hold. Treasure the companionship of the righteous and eschew all fellowship with the ungodly.
