From All Done Monkey:
Each year from April 21 to May 2, Bahá’ís celebrate the festival of Ridván. This twelve day period commemorates an important time in the history of this young religion, when its Prophet Founder, Bahá’u’lláh, stayed in the Ridván Garden after being exiled from Baghdad.
Ridván literally means “Paradise,” and Bahá’u’lláh gave the garden this name because it was here that He announced that He was the One promised in all previous religions as the bringer of an age of peace and prosperity to all humankind. The annual commemoration of Bahá’u’lláh’s stay in the Ridván Garden is considered the holiest of days for Bahá’ís.
I thought it would be a lovely opportunity to focus on acts of kindness. Here is a simple activity that families can do together, by focusing on spreading joy during this most holy festival. I hope you enjoy this Ridvan coloring page with your loved ones! This is a great activity to accompany these lovely children’s books about Bahá’í.
