Ayyam-i-Ha, the days of hospitality, charity and gift giving (February 26 to March 1)


The Ayyam-i-Ha are devoted to spiritual preparation for the fast, and are a time of hospitality, charity and gift giving.

Prayer for Ayyam-i-Ha

My God, my Fire and my Light! The days which Thou hast named the Ayyam-i-Ha (the Days of Ha, Intercalary days) in Thy Book have begun, O Thou Who art the King of names, and the fast which Thy most exalted Pen hath enjoined unto all who are in the kingdom of Thy creation to observe is approaching.

I entreat Thee, O my Lord, by these days and by all such as have during that period clung to the cord of Thy commandments, and laid hold on the handle of Thy precepts, to grant that unto every soul may be assigned a place within the precincts of Thy court, and a seat at the revelation of the splendors of the light of Thy countenance.

These, O my Lord, are Thy servants whom no corrupt inclination hath kept back from what Thou didst send down in Thy Book. They have bowed themselves before Thy Cause, and received Thy Book with such resolve as is born of Thee, and observed what Thou hadst prescribed unto them, and chosen to follow that which had been sent down by Thee. Thou seest, O my Lord, how they have recognized and confessed whatsoever Thou hast revealed in Thy Scriptures. Give them to drink, O my Lord, from the hands of Thy graciousness the waters of Thine eternity. Write down, then, for them the recompense ordained for him that hath immersed himself in the ocean of Thy presence, and attained unto the choice wine of Thy meeting.

I implore Thee, O Thou the King of kings and the Pitier of the downtrodden, to ordain for them the good of this world and of the world to come. Write down for them, moreover, what none of Thy creatures hath discovered, and number them with those who have circled round Thee, and who move about Thy throne in every world of Thy worlds. Thou, truly, art the Almighty, the All-Knowing, the All-Informed.

                                                                                                            -- Baha'u'llah

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the
page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content

so people could connect with it better. Youve
got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2

pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

With havin so much content and articles do
you ever run into any issues of plagorism

or copyright violation? My website has a lot of exclusive content

I've either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up

all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any

methods to help stop content from being stolen? I'd genuinely
appreciate it.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year

old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put
the shell to her ear and

screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is

entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
