- Ayyam-i-Ha is a Baha’i festival that is joyously celebrated in countries and territories all over the world. It is a time of hospitality, generosity, and caring for the needy. This year Ayyam-i-Ha runs from February 26-29.
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, Behzad Khoshmashrab sings “Eshgh Manam” in Persian. It is based on a poem by Mansour Hallaj which is cited in a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha revealed in honor of a Persian prince who was totally enamoured with the love of God and who taught the Faith constantly and audaciously until the end of his life.
This song was filmed and recorded in Melbourne, Australia in May 2016.
