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.
“Gott genügt allen Dingen” is the first song from the European Baha’i Choral Festival that was held from May 29 – June 2, 2019 at the Baha’i House of Worship in Langenhain, Germany. This German song was composed and conducted by Ameli Dziemba and is based on a prayer revealed by the Bab.
Lyrics & Quote
Sprich: Gott genügt allen Dingen und über die Dinge hinaus und nichts in den Himmeln, auf Erden oder dazwischen kann genügen außer Gott, deinem Herrn. Wahrlich, er ist der Wissende, der Erhalter, der Allmächtige.
Say: God sufficeth all things above all things, and nothing in the heavens or in the earth but God sufficeth. Verily, He is in Himself the Knower, the Sustainer, the Omnipotent.
