The Bahai religion was originated from Iran. In 1844 a Muslim named Ali Muhhamad Shirazi declared himself the spokesman for the twelfth Imam, or prayer leader, anticipated by some Shi'ite Muslims ever since the ninth century. Calling himself Bab-ud-Din, the "Gate of Faith," he introduced sweeping reforms into Islam, such as raising the status of women. A group of followers gathered around him, calling themselves Babis, "Followers of the Bab."

After the execution of Bab-ud-Din in 1850, a follower who escaped after the execution believed himself to be the predicted one. Mirza Husayn Ali took the name Baha-ullah, "Glory of Allah," in 1863, and those who followed him became known as Baha'is.

After his death in 1892, his son Abdul Baha took over the movement, traveling and lecturing extensively, eventually even receiving knighthood in England for his work promoting world peace. Now, having moved far away from Islam, Baha'i is recognized as a separate religion.

May be - as per history:-The Bahai faith is the youngest independent religion of the word, which was founded in the mid 19th century by Mirza Husayn Ali (1817-1892), son of a government minister in Tehran (Iran). Mirza Husayn Ali is known to the world as Baha Ullah and regarded by Bahais as the most recent in the line of Messengers of God.
The Bahai religion originally grew out of the Babism faith, which was founded in 1844 by Mirza Ali Mohammad of Shiraz (Iran) who proclaimed a spiritual doctrine emphasising the forthcoming appearance of a new messenger of God who would overturn old beliefs and customs. Mirza Husayn Ali claimed to be this new messenger of the era and was renowned Baha Ullah meaning glory to God.
Before Baha Ullah died in 1892, he appointed his eldest son, Abdul-Baha (1844-1921), to be his successor, lead the Bahai community and act as the authorised interpreter of his teachings. Under Abdul-Bahas leadership, the Bahai faith spread to other continents.
