Ninth Day of Ridván (rez-vahn)
Ridván means paradise. In 1863, when the Baha’i religion began, Baha’u’llah, the founder of the Baha’i religion, and his followers were exiled from Baghdad. They stayed in a garden outside Baghdad for twelve days, where Baha’u’llah relayed his plans for Baha’i to his followers. The ninth day of Ridván was when most of Baha’u’llah’s followers could join him after the Tigris receded. It is seen as a Holy Day.
