On a Prayer for the Fast: Performed by the Baha'is of Shiraz

A video for the Fast. -gw

Bahá'í Prayer for the Fast - Baha'i Faith
Bahá'ís of Shiraz 20 min 20 sec - Mar 15, 2006

The Children of Adam are limbs of each other
Having been created of one essence.
When the calamity of time afflicts one limb
The other limbs cannot remain at rest.
If thou hast no sympathy for the troubles of others
Thou art unworthy to be called by the name of a man.
A native of Shiraz, Persia

You know where those first few lines of that poem of Sa'di's are hanging, right? I just can not wait when Baha'u'llah's Words are similarly placed... Perhaps in a country's parliament somewhere.. in our lifetime..
