Baha’i Youth in Nairobi Singing Hakuna Mtu

July 13, 2020, in Music > Community, by

Some of the youth attending a conference on May 15th, 2016 in Nairobi came together to sing the Bab’s “Remover of Difficulties” prayer in Swahili at the end of the day. It was the culmination of a day full of camaraderie, learning, and a joyful spirit among everyone.

Lyrics & Quote

SWAHILI

Hakuna mtu awezaye kuondoa

shida isipokuwa Mwenyezi Mungu? (2x)

ENGLISH

Is there any Remover of difficulties save God? Say: Praised be God! He is God! All are His servants, and all abide by His bidding!

The Bab
