The Ascension of Abdu’l-Baha

in Explore > Calendar

Abdu’l-Baha was the eldest son of Baha’u’llah who referred to Him as “the Mystery of God” and “a shelter for all mankind”, however Abdu’l-Baha preferred to be called “Abdu’l-Baha” which means “the Servant of Baha” in reference to His servitude to 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.”

Home of Light is Luke Slott’s album in honour of the centenary of the Passing of Abdu’l-Baha and “Apple of Mine Eye” is one of its songs.

The lyrics of the song are the words of Baha’u’llah to Abdu’l-Baha, as quoted by Shoghi Effendi in The World Order of Baha’u’llah.

Home of Light, and all of Luke Slott’s albums, can be listened to on YouTube.

We’ve featured Luke’s music on Baha’i Blog over the years and in this interview he talks about a storytelling initiative that shared the stories and vignettes from crucial points in the Life of Adbu’l-Baha that inspired the music of Home of Light.
