- 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.”
In tribute to Clara and Hyde Dunn who moved to Australia in 1920 in order to share the teachings of the Baha’i Faith, singer-songwriter Tom Francis has composed a song called “Mother, Father”.
