Dedicating this beautiful quotation to one of the most selfless, generous and loving mothers I know – the incredible woman who raised me…
I would also like to share two prayers for women written by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá set to music. They are titled ‘Daughter of the Kingdom’ composed in honor of my daughter’s 15th birthday. The second video is titled ‘Fragrances of Holiness’ composed with my son. Please see below.
The prayer for mothers is a recent translation from ‘Additional Prayers revealed by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’. Below is the full text:
O Thou forgiving God! Forgive the sins of my loving mother, pardon her shortcomings, cast upon her the glance of Thy gracious providence, and enable her to gain admittance into Thy Kingdom.
O God! From the earliest days of my life she educated and nurtured me, yet I did not recompense her for her toil and labours. Do Thou reward her by granting her eternal life and making her exalted in Thy Kingdom.
Verily, Thou art the Forgiver, the Bestower, and the Kind. -‘Abdu’l-Bahá
