The Guardian is a hereditary office of the Baháʼí Faith that is first mentioned in the Will and Testament of ʻAbdu'l-Bahá. Shoghi Effendi was named as the first Guardian of the Baháʼí Faith, and future Guardians were to be appointed from among the male descendants of Baháʼu'lláh. However, since Shoghi Effendi died without having named a successor Guardian, no person could be named to fulfill the position after his death on November 4, 1957, and he remains the only individual acknowledged as Guardian of the Baháʼí Faith, but his guidance remains in the written record of his many writings.
