    Aside from having very prominent positions among the writings of the Primal Point and the Blessed Beauty, both Persian Bayán and Iqán have revolutionized both abstract thinking and practical implications of almost every major theological doctrine, as well as the social aspects mentioned in the religious and philosophical systems of the past. In doing so, both the Báb and His Holiness Bahá'u'lláh construct a very logical, cohesive and necessary Order that intrinsically upholds the integrity and the consistency of all the religious truths, while extrinsically challenges their superficial reading and contradictory aspects paving the way for a more advance and unified field of human understanding about the true nature and objectives of religious systems aiming at creating a new race of man.
