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 Manzini, Eswatini with Sabin Bachu, Leticia Bachu Nuru and Aysher Jubile, accompanied by Sanele Nhlabatsi and Xolani Tsele, singing “Lovers of God”, from the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha.
This song was filmed and recorded in Manzini, Eswatini, December 2018.

…O ye lovers of God, make firm your steps in His Cause, with such resolve that ye shall not be shaken though the direst of calamities assail the world. By nothing, under no conditions, be ye not perturbed. Be ye anchored fast as the high mountains…
