Recently someone asked me about what the Baha’i Faith has to say about near-death experiences. I don’t have any knowledge on this topic, but a quick search indicated that a lot of Baha’is had written and spoken about it. As a result, I decided to put together a list of resources, which could easily be accessed by those interested in this topic. If you know of others, please let me know and I’ll include them.
To access more information on each one, please click on the link.
