Thank You for this prayer. So lovely and so timely. Baha’i prayers are beautiful regardless of what language they are chanted in. All talk about love of God and love of humanity. It’s these prayers that helps their readers become the shining stars that they have become in Iran, flames of fire to warm up the cold hearts and rivers of life eternal to the loved ones of God everywhere.

I do not speak or understand Farsi, if this is the language in which she chanted this beautiful prayer that touches me to the depths of my soul and brings tears to my eyes and sadness to my heart.
She is a hero, and so are all the others.

I would love to read the English translation of this prayer while I listen to it.
The chant is lovely and knowing the story behind it is what makes it so much more touching. Comprehending the words being chanted is spiritually the most powerful.

We will both be grateful Mehrdad. My comment was actually a big fat ‘hint’ for the English translation….
