107 First Day Of Ridvan #75






This is a reference to the arrival of Baha'u'llah and His companions in

the Najibiyyih Garden outside the city of Baghdad, subsequently referred

to by the Baha'is as the Garden of Ridvan. This event, which took place

thirty-one days after Naw-Ruz, in April 1863, signalized the commencement

of the period during which Baha'u'llah declared His Mission to His

companions. In a Tablet, He refers to His Declaration as the Day of

supreme felicity and He describes the Garden of Ridvan as the Spot from

which He shed upon the whole of creation the splendours of His Name, the

All-Merciful. Baha'u'llah spent twelve days in this Garden prior to

departing for Istanbul, the place to which He had been banished.



The Declaration of Baha'u'llah is celebrated annually by the twelve-day

Ridvan Festival, described by Shoghi Effendi as the holiest and most

significant of all Baha'i festivals (see notes 138 and 140).
