- 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.
This video shares a prayer by the Bab chanted in Turkish with music. It is chanted by Yasir Kılıç, piano by Per Hakman, and clarinet by Ali Şehir.
Here is the prayer in Turkish, as well as its English translation:
Ey Allahım ey Rabbim ey EfendimKendimi yakınlarımdan kopardımSenin vasıtanla dünyadaki herkesten bağımsız olmayı ve Senin gözünde övgüye değer olana ermeyi Senden istedim. Beni özgenden bağımsız kılacak olanı bağışla ve sınırsız lütuflarından bir pay ver bana. Sen gerçekten de sonsuz fazıl Rabbisin.
O MY God, my Lord and my Master! I have detached myself from my kindred and have sought through Thee to become independent of all that dwell on earth and ever ready to receive that which is praiseworthy in Thy sight. Bestow on me such good as will make me independent of aught else but Thee, and grant me an ampler share of Thy boundless favors. Verily Thou art the Lord of grace abounding.
