- Abdu’l-Baha was the eldest son of Baha’u’llah. When Abdu’l-Baha passed away on 28 November 1921, He was eulogized as One who led humanity to the “Way of Truth,” as a “pillar of peace” and the embodiment of “glory and greatness.”
This music video, produced by Elahi Tarani, shares a prayer by Baha’u’llah in Arabic.
Here are the words sung in Arabic as well as their English translation:
أي رب طهر أذني لاستماع آياتك ونور قلبي بنور عرفانك، ثم اَنطق لساني بذكرك وثنائك، فوعزتك يا الهي لا احب سواك ولا اريد دونك.
Purge Thou mine ear, O my Lord, that I may hearken unto the verses sent down unto Thee, and illuminate my heart with the light of Thy knowledge, and loose my tongue that it may make mention of Thee and sing Thy praise. By Thy might, O my God! My soul is wedded to none beside Thee, and my heart seeketh none except Thine own Self.
All of the videos of prayers sung in Arabic that are produced by Elahi Tarani can be found online.
