The Fast

  • Baha’is abstain from food and drink between sunrise and sunset for 19 days. While this abstention from food and drink is a test of one’s will and discipline, the Fast is not just about abstaining from food. The Fast is, primarily, a spiritual practice.

The Life & Legacy of Bahiyyih Khanum – A Talk by Dr. Janet Khan

September 10, 2015, in Audio > Talks, by

Here at Baha’i Blog, we love listening to Baha’i-inspired talks, so we were so excited when we heard that the LSA of the Gold Coast had invited Dr. Janet Khan to give a talk at the Gold Coast Baha’i Centre in Australia.

In this talk, Dr. Janet Khan gives a talk on the extraordinary life and legacy of Bahiyyih Khanum, the daughter of Baha’u’llah. Bahiyyih Khanum, given the title the Greatest Holy Leaf, contributed significantly in the early years of the Faith. Her steadfastness during a critical period in the history of the Faith and during her appointment as the head of the Baha’i Faith testifies to the greatness of her character.

The Greatest Holy Leaf is a superb role model to men and women everywhere who seek creative ways to deal with the forces of today’s society.

Dr. Janet Khan is also the author of The Prophet’s Daughter – The Life and Legacy of Bahiyyih Khanum.

You can watch the talk here on Baha’i Blog’s YouTube Channel:

And you can also listen to and download the audio version of the talk here on Baha’i Blog’s Soundcloud page:

This talk was filmed at the Gold Coast Baha’i Centre, Australia on 25 July, 2015.

A special thanks to both Dr. Janet Khan and the LSA of the Gold Coast, Australia for the talk and for allowing Baha’i Blog to film and publish it online.
