In his letter to Queen Victoria, written to her between 18, Bahá’u’lláh had singled out the action of the British government in using its power to stamp out the world trade in slaves for particular commendation.
We have been informed that thou hast forbidden the trading in slaves, both men and women.
The family the Báb was born into possessed several slaves: one was his first tutor, and the subject of a eulogy penned by his young pupil/master in later years, crediting him as having raised him and praises him.
Nor was slavery immediately abolished among followers of the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh.

He, verily, is the All-Wise, Whose wisdom encompasseth all things.It is not for him who is himself a servant to buy another of God's servants, and this hath been prohibited in His Holy Tablet.Thus, by His mercy, hath the commandment been recorded by the Pen of justice.The household in which Bahá’u’lláh was raised also included a number of slaves.He became the owner of these on the death of his father, whereupon he gave each of them the choice of remaining in his service as free servants, or leaving.
