Ninth Day of Ridvan
Start Date: 4/28/2017 All Day
End Date: 4/28/2017

Event Description:

Ridvan is a 12-day Baha’i festival, one of the holiest celebrations in the Baha’i calendar.

"Ridván" means paradise, and is named for the Garden of Ridván outside Baghdad, where Bahá'u'lláh stayed for twelve days after the Ottoman Empire exiled him from the city and before commencing his journey to Constantinople. On the ninth day of this period, Baha’u’llah’s family joined him in the garden.

 The festival starts at two hours before sunset on the first day, and major celebrations also occur on the ninth and twelfth days. On those days, work is prohibited and usually observed with a community gathering where prayers are shared.
