June 18, 2023 will mark 40 years since 10 Baha’i women were hanged in Shiraz. Their only ‘crime’ was their refusal to renounce their beliefs in a faith that promotes the principles of gender equality, unity, justice, and truthfulness. This collection highlights Baha’i Blog content relating to the ongoing persecution of Baha’is in Iran.
Baha’i Blog’s “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 Vancouver, Canada with Geoffrey Tyson, Sarah Mohebiany, Shadi Toloui-Wallace and Hoda Toloui-Wallace who sing “Bestow Upon Me a Heart” based on a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha.
This song was filmed and recorded in Vancouver, Canada, January 2017.
Lyrics & Quote
He is God! O God, my God! Bestow upon me a pure heart, like unto a pearl.
