Happy Ayyam-i-Ha

Happy Ayyam-i-Ha
by Mona 19

As many of you know, this time of the year is a special time for Baha’is called Ayyam-i-Ha (Intercalary Days) and it’s celebrated on the days of Feb 26th through March 1st. These days are set aside for hospitality, charity and gift giving and spiritual preparation for the fast.

During the fast (March 2-20), which follows, we abstain from food and drink between sunrise and sunset as a reminder of the need for us to control our material desires. It’s a time of meditation and prayer during which we try to refresh ourselves spiritually.

The fasting period ends with the joyous Naw Ruz festival, which begins at sunset on March 20.

My Best Beloved, Baha’u’llah, says: “It behoveth the people of Baha, throughout these days, to provide good cheer for themselves, their kindred and, beyond them, the poor and needy, and with joy and exultation to hail and glorify their Lord, to sing His praise and magnify His Name.

Happy Ayyam-i-Ha to Tahirih , Alborz, Faryar, Seagull, Adib.M ,...and all Bahai's around the world.

عبادات و عید شما مبارک منا خانم

Javad Yassari


نفس باد صبا مشک فشان خواهد شد
عالم پیر دگرباره جوان خواهد شد
ارغوان جام عقیقی به سمن خواهد داد
چشم نرگس به شقایق نگران خواهد شد
این تطاول که کشید از غم هجران بلبل
تا سراپرده گل نعره زنان خواهد شد
گر ز مسجد به خرابات شدم خرده مگیر
مجلس وعظ دراز است و زمان خواهد شد
ای دل ار عشرت امروز به فردا فکنی
مایه نقد بقا را که ضمان خواهد شد
ماه شعبان منه از دست قدح کاین خورشید
از نظر تا شب عید رمضان خواهد شد
گل عزیز است غنیمت شمریدش صحبت
که به باغ آمد از این راه و از آن خواهد شد
مطربا مجلس انس است غزل خوان و سرود
چند گویی که چنین رفت و چنان خواهد شد
حافظ از بهر تو آمد سوی اقلیم وجود
قدمی نه به وداعش که روان خواهد شد
