A Tribute to Abdu'l-Baha
The Ascension of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá occurred on Nov 28, 1921 in Haifa, in what is now northern Israel and the home of the Baha’i International Administrative Center. Bahá’ís observe this day annually as the anniversary of the passing of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, son of Bahá’u’lláh, the founder of the Baha’i Faith. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá is Bahá’u’lláh’s appointed successor, and authorized interpreter of His Father’s teachings. The typical observance consists of devotional readings and is held at 1:00 AM, as ‘Abdu’l-Bahá passed away about 1:00 AM on 28 November, 1921. As 2021 is the 100 th anniversary of the passing of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Baha’is all over the world will commemorate this historical day (November 27 after sunset through November 28 before sunset). All year long in 2021, there will be special programs focusing on the special life of service to humanity of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá.
The Bahá’ís of Fort Wayne, Indiana are hosting a 4-part series called, “A Tribute To ‘Abdu’l-Bahá”. It will be presented in the Local Bahá’í zoom room on the first Tuesday of the months April-July 2021 at 7:00 PM. The exact dates are: April 6, 2021, May 4, 2021, June 1, 2021, and July 6, 2021.
