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.
In honour of the Bicentenary of the anniversary of the Birth of Baha’u’llah, we thought we’d showcase all of our Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions whose lyrics are based on the Writings of Baha’u’llah — and there are currently 43 of them! To celebrate the world embracing vision of Baha’u’llah, we’ve begun with those songs in a variety languages other than English, then we showcase all the Studio Sessions in English based on The Hidden Words, those based on quotations from Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, and finally, those that sing prayers revealed by Baha’u’llah.

Thank you for your great service. Listening to these songs from the Artic Circle in norway.
Could these songs please be uploaded perhaps under a playlist of Bahai blog?

That’s a great question! The vocal notes are not available but the chords or the score are included in the description below each song when applicable. Thanks for asking!
