June 18, 2023 will mark 40 years since 10 Baha’i women were hanged in Shiraz. Their only ‘crime’ was their refusal to renounce their beliefs in a faith that promotes the principles of gender equality, unity, justice, and truthfulness. This collection highlights Baha’i Blog content relating to the ongoing persecution of Baha’is in Iran.
Baha’i Blog’s t-shirts make great gifts for grown-ups and children!

All of our shirts include FREE GLOBAL SHIPPING but there’s only a limited number of shirts in each size so it’s best to order now before they’re all gone!

If you’re looking for a description that might help you to explain Ayyam-i-Ha and its significance to others, you might want to check out this Baha’i Blog article. Yas also shared a conversation she had with nephew and nieces about what Ayyam-i-Ha means here on Baha’i Blog.

They’ll walk you through how to create a variety of craft projects that you can gift to others — you’ll find videos on how to make roses, decorations, gift boxes and many, many others!

With young children at home, I love to play William Sears’ Ayyam-i-Ha album on repeat! The kids love the music and we find ourselves humming its melodies long into the Fast and Baha’i new year! You can purchase a copy of the album or its downloadable tracks from 9Starmedia.com
Queue up a playlist of the Baha’i talks you’ve found most inspiring and thoughtful, download them, and share them with friends. My mom is on the road a lot for the Faith so this year, I’m going to put some of these talks together for her. But don’t tell her!
It was a joy to interview Melissa Charepoo about her children’s books: one is all about Ayyam-i-Ha, and the other about the Fast and Naw-Ruz. My little ones love the colourful illustrations and feeling part of celebrations occurring around the world!
If there are other Ayyam-i-Ha resources that you use, or plan to make use of this year, please let us know in the comments section below!
