139 The First Day Of The Month Of Baha #111






In the Baha'i calendar the first month of the year and the first day of
each month are given the name Baha. The day of Baha of the month of Baha
is thus the Baha'i New Year, Naw-Ruz, which was ordained by the Bab as a
festival and is here confirmed by Baha'u'llah (see notes 26 and 147).

In addition to the seven Holy Days ordained in these passages of the
Kitab-i-Aqdas, the anniversary of the Martyrdom of the Bab was also
commemorated as a Holy Day in the lifetime of Baha'u'llah and, as a
corollary to this, 'Abdu'l-Baha added the observance of the Ascension of
Baha'u'llah, making nine Holy Days in all. Two other anniversaries which
are observed, but on which work is not suspended, are the Day of the
Covenant and the anniversary of the Passing of 'Abdu'l-Baha. See the
section on the Baha'i calendar in The Baha'i World, volume XVIII.
