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 London, United Kingdom with Ladan Ghiami who chants in Persian “Ay Talebeh Malakoot” based on a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha.
This song was filmed and recorded in London, United Kingdom, September 2018.
Lyrics & Quote
ای طالب ملکوت به الطاف حضرت پروردگار امیدوار باش و از مصائب شدیده این جهان نومید مگرد. الحمدلله خدای مهربان داری که طبیب هر بیمار است و غمخوار هر مبتلا .پناه یتیمان است و معین بی کسان و بی نهایت مهربان. اگر بدانی که قلب عبدالبهاء چقدر مهربان است البته از شدت فرح و سرور پرواز نمائی و فریاد واطوبی به اوج آسمان رسانی.
[*NOTE: This prayer has not been officially translated, however we have included a provisional translation by Adib Masumian below, which can also be found here: https://bit.ly/3qz2UPQ]
He is God. O thou who seekest after the Kingdom! Be hopeful of the favors of thy Lord, and despair not of the severe calamities of this world. Praise God that thou dost have a kind Lord, Who healeth every sick one and showeth compassion to every afflicted one. He is the refuge to the orphan and the helper to those who have no one; infinitely loving is He. Shouldst thou know how kind and tender is the heart of Abduʼl-Baha, so intense would thy joy and gladness be that thou wouldst surely take flight, and thy cry of “Oh, how blessed am I!” would reach the pinnacle of the heavens.Abdu’l-Baha
