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.”

In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, we’re in Mahikeng, South Africa with Dominique, Solomzi, Semere and Rosemary singing “Abdu’l-Baha”, a cover of the song originally by Steve, Denzil & Ephrim Aumua from the Heroes Teaching Conference in Brisbane, Australia.

This song was filmed and recorded in Mahikeng, South Africa, November, 2021.
