- 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.”
Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions is an initiative where we invite Baha’is and their friends from around the world to come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.
In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, we’re in Willikies in Antigua and Barbuda with Katie Eckert, Deborah Eckert and Ali Youssefi singing “Adversity” from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.
This song was filmed and recorded in Willikies in Antigua and Barbuda, on March 28th, 2021, and was composed by Ali Youssefi.
Here is the quote used for the lyrics followed by the quote and chords:
“O SON OF MAN! If adversity befall thee not in My path, how canst thou walk in the ways of them that are content with My pleasure? If trials afflict thee not in thy longing to meet Me, how wilt thou attain the light in thy love for My beauty?”– Baha’u’llah
