Not long ago, I participated in a Naw-Rúz celebration with many friends of the faith attending. Needless to say, that required an introductory talk to both the Faith and Naw-Rúz. The talk takes about 10 minutes and is based on the presentation of the Faith introduced in Ruhi book 6. It also briefly introduces Naw Rúz. Might this introduction be of use for other friends around the world?

Introducing Naw-Rúz

This is a special day for Bahá’ís. Let us begin with a brief introduction to the Bahá’í Faith is and why we celebrate this day which we call Naw-Rúz.

The Ridván Festivities are approaching. These twelve days are very special and on each day of these twelve days, there will be a Ridván related post on this blog. I have found myself “forgetting” that Ridván is for twelve days. To remedy that, I prepared a series of materials, one for each day, to read during these twelve days. Perhaps I am not the only one. Therefore, on each day of Ridván, there will be a Ridván related post. This series of Ridván related blog posts started with “Prelude to the Ridván Celebrations“followed about this post on the progressive allusions made by Bahá’u’lláh prior to His Declaration in the Ridván Garden.

In a few days, we celebrate the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh. As part of preparation for this Holy Day and its celebration, it might be valuable to read some stories and recounts of believers who had the honour of being in the presence of the Blessed Beauty and experience the Majesty of His Person. Following story is about one of the attempts on the life of the Blessed Beauty. A professional assassin, tried to assassin the Blessed Beauty while He was living in Bagdad.

  • the means for the determination of Naw-Ruz,
  • the accommodation of the lunar character of the Twin Holy Birthdays within the solar year,
  • fixing of the dates of the Holy Days within the Badi’ calendar.

On the 29th of May, the Bahais commemorates the Ascension of Bahá’u’lláh. Oftentimes, as part of the commemoration, programs are made with extracts from the Writings. Here you can find both a program and a slideshow for commemorating this Holy Day.

The program begins with the story of Bahá’u’lláh indicating weeks before His Ascension that it was soon time. Then the focus shifts to the sufferings of Bahá’u’lláh, His Majestic Figure, His Ascension and finally, His last wish for us and mankind. The slideshow follows the same pattern.

Hopefully, these will contribute for a more spiritual commemoration.
