Ayyam-i-Ha – Gifts

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.

“O thou whom I mention with my heart and tongue!

Though I do not see thee with mine eyes, I do see thee with my heart, and mention thee with the fullness of love, clemency, yearning and attraction, supplicating my Lord that we may meet together at the meeting of His Kingdom and the pavilion of His might, where we shall chant the verses of thanks for His bounty, generosity and gifts, the lights of which have shone upon all horizons and their effulgences have become intense upon the hearts of the people of harmony.

O thou my dearly beloved! Hasten! Hasten! to the gifts of thy Lord, the Merciful! Come to the Benefactor; avail thyself of this opportunity and take thy portion of this Greatest Treasure in this promised day!”

We would love to hear from you
