- Abdu’l-Baha was the eldest son of Baha’u’llah. When Abdu’l-Baha passed away on 28 November 1921, He was eulogized as One who led humanity to the “Way of Truth,” as a “pillar of peace” and the embodiment of “glory and greatness.”
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 Tilburg, in the Netherlands with Sabria Schouten, Efe, Rafael van der Hoeven and Maarten Noordzij who sing “Rely Upon God” based on a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha.
This song was filmed and recorded in Tilburg, Netherlands, November 2017.
