Holy Day

Ayyam-i-Ha – Enjoy Parties

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.

Enjoy Parties:

“If we are not happy and joyous at this season, for what other season shall we wait and for what other time shall we look?

This is the time for growing; the season for joyous gathering! Take the cup of the Testament in thy hand; leap and dance with ecstasy in the triumphal procession of the Covenant! Lay your confidence in the everlasting bounty, turn to the presence of the generous God; ask assistance from the Kingdom of Abha; seek confirmation from the Supreme World; turn thy vision to the horizon of eternal wealth; and pray for help from the Source of Mercy!”

We would love to hear from you
