Baha’i Blog Quiz: Ridvan (Part 2)

The 12 day festival of Ridvan, proclaimed by Baha’u’llah as the “King of Festivals” is here!

The period of Ridvan is special because it was during this the time that Baha’u’llah first proclaimed His mission, so it’s a time of celebration for Baha’is around the world.

  1. Loved it! We worked through it at the end of our Celebration in the Tyler Rose Garden yesterday!

  2. Ridvan Trivia quiz-2 was indeed a great job. Thanks a lot for the information’s shared. However regarding Abdul Baha’s instructions of holding the Annual and International Convention during Ridvan, it would be very nice of you if you could share the source of it.

  3. This is really cool, thank you. It is really helpful.
    However, could you please provide the source on Question 9, “Abdu’l-Baha instructed that both the annual National Convention, and International Convention, should be held during the period of Ridvan.”

    1. Hi Roshan! Thank you for your comment and your excellent question! I will research how we put that question together and will get back you with more information!

      1. Thank you, much appreciated. I asked these questions during the 9th day of Ridvan celebration here in Denmark and everyone answered ‘Shoghi Effendi’ for No.9 and I did research on the net but can’t seems to get a solid answer. I was asked to provide the source of the answer stating ‘Abdu’l-Baha’. I hope you could help me on this. 🙂

        1. Hi Roshan!

          We have looked more deeply and cannot find the source for Abdu’l-Baha’s instruction that both the National and International Convention be held during the period of Ridvan. For this reason, we decided to remove it from the quiz. If we are able to verify this fact at a later time we will put the question back in the quiz. Thank you so much for asking for a reference!

  4. Thank you Naysan and the team! I use the quizzes from this blog in our fund raising events in Pretoria (Tshwane) community and everybody loves them!
