Days to Remember
Holy Days and Anniversaries present valuable opportunities for deepening in the history of the Faith, in conjunction with our commemorations of historical events related to the Central Figures of the Cause.
However, materials and references for these observances and on the events are scattered through the Writings, and some are not generally known to have been especially revealed for certain Anniversaries.
With these thoughts in mind, Dr Forghani has drawn on his deep knowledge of Bahá'í literature to assemble in one book guidance and appropriate readings for each Holy Day. For the first time such a compilation became available in English in 1983 and since then it has proved to be a useful handbook for celebrating and commemorating Bahá'í Holy Days and Anniversaries. Materials provided in this compilation however should be taken as suggested readings rather than fixed and inflexible programmes.
Baher Forghani was born and educated in Iran, receiving his degree in pharmacy from Teheran University. In 1971 he left Iran with his family and since then until 1989 he lived in various Bahá'í communities and worked in the pharmaceutical industry in Australia. From 1989 to 2003, Baher Forghani and his wife resided in the Holy Land serving at the World Centre of the Bahá'í Faith. Since returning to Australia in 2003, he has been engaged in research into the Bahá'í writings, translation of Bahá'í literature, giving lectures and writing articles on subjects related to the Bahá'í Faith and participating in local Bahá'í activities.
