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’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, Reza Mostmand sings “Spreading the Light” in Arabic, based on a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha. An authorized translation of this prayer in English is not yet available.
This song was filmed and recorded in Toronto, Canada, December 2015.
Lyrics & Quote
الهي الهي ايد احبائك المخلصين علي الاقتفا بالنورالمبين و وفق عبيدك المقربين علي نشر نفحاتك بين العالمين حتي يلتهوا عن شبهات الناقضين بتبليغ دينك المنير و بث تعاليمك و اشاعة اثارك و اذاعة بيناتك بين الخافقين انك انت الكريم الرحيم العزيز الوهاب و انك انت المقتدرالمتعالي القوي المختار.
