Bahá’u’lláh - the Prophet Founder of the Bahá’i Faith states that “No welfare and no well-being can be attained except through consultation.”

Consultation is a distinctive and unifying method of decision-making that is used by Bahá’is whether at home, among friends, or while serving on committees or institutions at any level.
Ideas are shared in a frank, dispassionate, respectful and cordial manner.

This process serves as a means of harmonizing differing points of view, thus promoting unity among the members of a community, strengthening the bonds of trust and love between the individual, community and institutions, while at a subject from different points of view.

Consultation is a mechanism by which “The shining spark of truth cometh forth only after the clash of differing opinions.”
