"Naw-Rúz as a Festival" by Amelia & Anisa | Baha'i Song
This song called “Naw-Rúz as a festival”, was composed for Naw-Rúz, which translates to “New Day”. Naw-Rúz marks the conclusion of the 19-day Baha’i Fast, and the beginning of the Baha’i new year, a celebration of physical and spiritual springtime and a time for new beginnings.
Lyrics of the song from the Baha’i Writings:
“ Praised be Thou, O my God, that Thou hast ordained Naw-Rúz as a festival unto those who have observed the fast for love of Thee and abstained from all that is abhorrent unto Thee. Grant, O my Lord, that the fire of Thy love and the heat produced by the fast enjoined by Thee may inflame them in Thy Cause, and make them to be occupied with Thy praise and with remembrance of Thee”. ⁃Prayers and Meditations by Bahá’u’lláh
Joyous Naw Ruz
During this time of a global health crisis, Baha’is around the world are finding creative means of marking Naw-Ruz—their new year and the first day of spring—while strictly adhering to public health measures to halt the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). This day is a symbol of renewal, an occasion when all can reflect on their spiritual reality and how they can contribute to the well-being of their society.
