Ridvan song in Arabic

Yesterday I posted a video of a Ridvan song in English as part of a series of videos that I will be sharing for the 12 Days of Ridvan.
I just posted the video for the Ridvan song in Arabic sung by talented musician, Sonbol Taefi (see video below).  A few years ago, Sonbol asked me to record with her, Grant Hindin Miller and Luke Slott on the song, ‘The Photograph’, a piece she was producing for the 10th anniversary of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s travels to the West.  What a privilege to sing on ‘The Photograph‘ – such an epic song!
I am so excited to share this version as Arabic is the original language of this beautiful passage written by Bahá’u’lláh.
I look forward to sharing the next video on the blog tomorrow.  Kindly share with friends you know who speak Arabic.
اَنِ افْرَحُوا يا اَهْلَ اللّهِ بِذِکرِ اَيّامٍ فيها ظَهَرَ الفَرَحُ الأَعظَمُ
Rejoice with exceeding gladness, O people of Bahá, as ye call to remembrance the Day of supreme felicity… Bahá’u’lláh
