Welcome and Introduction to Ridván (please choose an MC prior to the celebration)

Welcome to the 9th Day of our Ridván Holy Day Celebrations. The Holy Days of Ridván commemorate the 12 days Bahá’u’lláh and His companions were in the Najibiyyih Garden outside the city of Baghdad, now referred to by the Bahá’ís as the Garden of Ridván, which means Paradise. Tonight we celebrate the 9th Day of these momentous days during which Bahá’u’lláh declared His Mission to His companions. In a Tablet, Bahá’u’lláh refers to His declaration as “the day of supreme felicity” and He describes the Garden of Ridván as “the Spot from which He shed upon the whole of creation the splendours of His Name, the All-Merciful.” Now we will have an opening prayer, chanted in Persian, a prayer in English as well as a Writing followed by a song “In the Garden of Ridván”

Opening Prayer – Persian Chanting (please find someone at the gathering to chant a Farsi prayer.)

    Lots of people who know little about the Baha’i Faith will share the Ninth Day of Ridvan with us at our house this year. Thank you for offering this clear, concise introduction to open the celebration.
