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 Santiago, Chile with the Choir of the Baha’i Temple of South America singing “Los Amados del Señor” from a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha.
This song was filmed and recorded in Santiago, Chile on 26 May, 2019, and it was composed by Pierre Weber.
