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.”

Tablet of Visitation of Abdu’l-Baha – A Song by Luke Slott

November 27, 2022, in Music > Recording Artist, by

In this song Luke Slott sings the Tablet of Visitation of Abdu’l-Baha which is often recited at His resting place. This song is from Home of Light, Luke’s album in honour of the centenary of the Passing of Abdu’l-Baha. The video features architectural renderings of the future Shrine of Abdu’l-Baha.

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.
