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 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 Stockholm, Sweden with Helene Berg and Charisse Johnson who sing “Finns det någon befriare” in Swedish, which translates to English as “Is There Any Remover”, and is from a prayer by the Bab.
This song was filmed and recorded in Stockholm, Sweden, October, 2018, and was composed by Gloria Golmohammadi, Helene Berg and Nora Bergsmo.
Lyrics & Quote
Finns det någon befriare från svårigheter utom Gud! Säg: Prisad vare Gud! Han är Gud! Alla är Hans tjänare och alla lyder under Hans bud.
Is there any Remover of difficulties save God? Say: Praised be God! He is God! All are His servants, and all abide by His bidding!
Naysan is passionate about using the arts and media to explore the teachings of the Baha’i Faith. Back in 2011, Naysan started up the Baha’i Blog project, channeling his experiences in both media and technology companies to help create a hub for Baha’i-inspired content online.
Thank you very much for the always beautiful and interesting post, dear Naysan! I can watch the videos on my big TV. I can’t see all of them, but many. Thank you very much for yesterday’s wonderful video from the temple in Sydney. Lovely dear Naysan
