This exalted utterance is like unto water for quenching the fire of hate and enmity which smoldereth within the hearts and breasts of men.

By this single utterance contending peoples and kindreds will attain the light of true unity.

Verily He speaketh the truth and leadeth the way. He is the All-Powerful, the Exalted, the Gracious.

Bahá’u’lláh

The Utterance Project – World Languages is the companion channel to the main Utterance Project channel. The mission to “engage with the Bahá’í Writings in the original Arabic and Persian” is the same, but the reach is global, as we are constantly adding languages in which the words of The Báb, Bahá’u’lláh, and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá are subtitled to cater to the population of the world who cannot access videos subtitled only in English.

Below you will find our World Languages endeavors, which are to introduce as many non-English-speaking people of the world as possible to the original Bahá’í Writings recited in their original Arabic and Persian. Bahá’u’lláh taught us that « the earth is but one country », and to honor His Holy Words, we set out to make the Utterance Project as inclusive we could.

To that end, we have started translating the subtitles of two selections into as many world languages as we can: the Short Obligatory Prayer and the Remover of Difficulties. You will find them below, and also under the top navigation menu under « World Languages. »

We add new World Languages videos every week, so please check back regularly!

If you would like to help us translate the videos into your language, you may contact us here.
