Ayyam-i-Ha (or Intercalary Days) is a period of time when Bahá’ís focus more than usually on hospitality, charity, giving gifts and preparing for the month of fasting. The Ayyam-i-Ha are of four or five days’ duration. They are the days that fall outside the nineteen months of nineteen days that make up the Bahá’í calendar.
At the close of 2021, the Bahá’í World News Service looked back on a momentous year that included marking of the occasion of the centenary of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s passing.
After heavy rainfall caused severe flooding in Malaysia last month, the spirit of service and collective action that had been fostered through Bahá’í community-building activities was immediately channeled toward relief efforts.
