“(Janam Be Fadayat) جانم به فدایت ” by Maya & Deena [Audio Track]

Baha’i Blog’s “Studio Sessions” is an initiative where we invite Baha’is and their friends from around the world to come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.

In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, we’re in Toronto, Canada with Maya Wong and Deena Sobhani Ghodrati who sing “Janam Be Fadayat” based on a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha in Persian.

This song was filmed and recorded in Toronto, Canada, December 2017.

Here is the quotation used for the lyrics below, (currently there is no existing English translation):

هوالابهي اي عاشق روي بها گويند چون ابراهيم خليل را در آتش سعير انداختند جبرييل ندا کرد «هل لک حاجة » خليل جليل جواب فرمود «امّا اليک فلا کفئ عن سؤالي علمه بحالي» تو نيز توجه بحضرت غيب ابهي کن و بگو: اي واقف اسرار اي هادي ابرار اي مونس احرار جانم بفدايت ؛ اي دلبر دلجو اي گلرخ مهرو اي سرور خوشخو جانم بفدايت ؛ حاجت تو بداني هر چند نهاني در هر دمي آني جانم بفدايت. ع ع

“Howal Ábha,
Ey Áshiq-i-Ruy-i Bahá. Gúyand chún Ibráhím-i-Khalíl rá dar átash-i-saír andákhtand, Jabraíl nidá kard: Hallaka hájatu. Khalíl-i-Jalil javáb farmúd: Ammá alaika fala kafá’an soálí va ilmihí bi hálí.

Tu níz Tawajuh bi hazrat-i-gheib-i-abha kon wa bigú: ey Wáqif-i-asrar, ey Hádíy-i-abrár, ey múnisi akhyár, jánam bi Fadáyat, ey dilbar-i-diljú, ey Gulrukh-i-mahrú, ey Sarwar-i-khushkhú, Jánam bi Fadáyat, Hájat tu bidání, Harchand nahání, Dar har dam-i-Ání, Jánam bi Fadáyat. Ein, Ein”

– Abdu’l-Baha

Randomly bursting into song is a daily occurrence for Jordan, something which his friends find both hilarious and terrifying, however, for their own survival, they have grown accustomed to acts of randomness. Growing up in both the Czech Republic and Australia, and looking like he’s from neither, Jordan took to creating Youtube videos from a young age, the intention of his content is to make people happy and hopefully spread some positivity juice. He is now studying Media in Melbourne Australia, and singing for his classmates. (he really does not sing that much)
