The Kitb-i-qn, also known as The Book of Certitude, was written by Bah'u'llh, Prophet Founder of the Bah'i Faith to ensure that those who wished to follow His teachings for this era in the development of mankind, did not neglect recognition of previous Manifestations of God.

"This book verifies the respective stations and missions of the Founders of religion.
