Holy Day

Ayyam-i-Ha – Charity

Most religions have a season of gift-giving and good cheer, and for Baha´’ı´s, this is “Ayya´m-i-Ha´.” 

The festival of Ayyam-i-Ha comes at the end of February each year, preceding the month of fasting that ends with the Naw Ruz (new year) celebration on the vernal equinox. During this special time Baha’is enjoy parties, service, gifts and acts of charity.

“Be united in hearts and spirits, strive so that ye may obtain the great favors, attain to the overflowing chalice, perform charity (good deeds), gain the spirit of life, attracted by the fragrance and depend on the Lord of Signs. At that time your faces will be illumined, your souls holy, your hearts severed from this world and attached to the Supreme Concourse, and you will call out with the most loud voice: “Glad-tidings unto us through these divine favors and blessed are we by this heavenly guidance!”

We would love to hear from you
