As Ayyam-i-Ha is celebrated around the world by Baha’is and their friends, here are 19 Instagram pictures that capture the joy of these special days of charity, service, hospitality, and generosity!
Happy Ayyam-I-Ha. #Ayyamiha or the #Intercalary days are celebrated by the #Bahais all over the world. It is a period dedicated to socializing, being hospitable, giving generously to the poor and needy, and preparing for the upcoming month of the Bahai fasting. Our calendar has 19 days to 19 Months and the excess days are celebrated as the days of Ayyamiha. There a lot more information on the Ayyamiha celebrations. I’ve added a link, if you’d like to know further. . http://bahaiblog.net/2015/02/an-introduction-to-ayyam-i-ha/ . #theculinarystories #bahai #bahaifestivals #chocolatecake #baking #cake #instagram #foodphotography #foodlove #intercalarydays
So thrilled today to share the Baha’i festival of Ayyam-i-Ha and the principle of oneness with my daughters pre-school. Although we are just one small person, when we all stand together in unity, we can light up the world. May we all bring light to the darkness by working together! #ayyamiha #morelovelesshate

Prepared Ayyam-i-Ha gifts to our friends here in Gumi, South Korea! “JOYOUS AYYAM-I-HA!” All over the world Ayyam-i-Ha Also known as Days of Ha, the Ayyam-i-Ha are intercalary days (extra days inserted in a calendar) in the Baha’i calendar. The calendar is made up of 19 months of 19 days each (361 days), plus the period of four days (five in leap years) of Ayyam-i-Ha added between the 18th and 19th months, which allows for the year to be adjusted to the solar cycle. The days are set aside for rejoicing, hospitality, gift-giving, special acts of charity, and spiritually preparing for the Baha’i fast, from March 2-20. March 21 is New Year’s Day, Nawruz, and the first day of the Baha’i calendar. The new calendar was inaugurated by Mirza Ali Mohammad, known as the Bab, founder of the Babi religion from which the Baha’i faith emerged. Baha’is believe that the new age of unity they foresee should have a new calendar free of the associations of the older calendars. The Baha’i observe nine days on which work connected with trade, commerce, industry, and agriculture should be suspended. These days are the first, ninth, and 12th days of the Feast of Ridvan, Nawruz, the anniversaries of the Bab’s birth, declaration, and martyrdom, and the birth and ascension of Baha’ u’lah. #thanksgiving #ayyamiha #serviceisworship #truefriendship #love #unity

Ayyám’i’há devotional gathering and celebration at our home tonight with our family ❤. “Ayyám’i’há” is a time of celebration, love and generosity for the Bahá’í’s of the world in the days preceding the Bahá’í Fast (1 March-20 March). It is a time to share in joy, love and happiness and something I am truly grateful we are able to celebrate with so many amazing souls in our home. If you know any Bahá’í’s, wish them a happy Ayyám’i’há and good luck for the fasting period 😁❤. #BAHAI #BAHAIFAITH
