Ninth Day of Ridvan (April 29) A Family Reunited!
Is the day when Baha’u’llah’s family joined him at the Najibiyyih
Garden, Baghdad (Garden of Ridvan).

"For twelve days Bahá'u'lláh stayed in the Garden, and would be found
each day in the utmost joy, walking majestically in the flower-lined
avenues and amongst the trees. The friends living in Baghdad would
come during the day and return home each night, whilst others would be
engaged in service to those in the Garden.

Eminent rulers, clergy and jurists would come continuously to
Bahá'u'lláh's tent with their insoluble problems, and take their leave
satisfied with their dilemmas entirely solved."


Natalie Merchant - Wonder (This Child will be Gifted)

Doctors have come
From distant cities
Just to see Me...

They say I must be one of the Wonders,
God's own creation,
And as far as they see they can offer
No explanation....

Newspapers ask
Intimate questions,
What confessions;
They reach into My head
To steal the Glory
Of My story......
