- Baha’is believe in the power of prayer and you’ll find Baha’is and their friends, throughout the world, getting together to pray. This is often referred to as a ‘devotional gathering’ or ‘devotional meeting’, and they happen in diverse settings, whether in cities or villages.
In this short video produced by New Zealand’s “Baha’i on Air”, Grant Hindin-Miller speaks and sings about Mirza Mihdi, the youngest son of Baha’u’llah, and recounts the tragic history of his death.
In an interview with Dr. Kirsten Zemke, an ethnomusicology lecturer at Auckland University, Grand Hindin-Miller shares how Mirza Mihdi, the younger brother of Abdu’l-Baha, died after falling through a skylight during his evening prayers on the roof of the prison barracks in Akka. You can read more about his life in this Baha’i Encyclopedia Project article here.
