Khatt-i-Badí’ Khatt-i-Badí’

The Khatt-i-Badí Script was created by Mírzá Muhammad-'Alí (1853-1937), son of Bahá’u’lláh, the founder of the Bahá'í relgion. It was first appeared in a collection of Bahá'u'lláh's Tablets published in 1891 in which Mírzá Muhammad-'Alí signed his name in the new script.

The script was used mostly by Mírzá Muhammad-'Alí and his friends at first. Later it was used as a secret code. The name of the script means 'New Writing'. After Mírzá Muhammad-'Alí died, the script was forgotten. Recently there has been renewed interest in the script, however.
