Bahá’í Calendar

Bahá’í Calendar


This app displays the current Bahá’í date and provides a reminder of any upcoming Bahá’í Feast or holy day. Sunrise and sunset times are calculated based on GPS location and will be displayed if a GPS fix is available.


The Bahá’í date that is displayed near the top of the screen is calculated dynamically, i.e. it is automatically advanced by a day after sunset at the user's location.

The tabulated calendar display on the bottom half of the screen provides a more traditional 'static' view. Both Gregorian and Badi dates are displayed simultaneously with the Badi dates shown using smaller font and having a background that is coloured according to the Badi month in question.

A star-shaped icon marks dates on the calendar that are of significance to Baha'is. Touching on any such date will bring up an information box that will display further details related to that date.

Recent changes:
Version 1.22 fixes the way the calendar is searched in order to notify users of upcoming Baha'i events.

Version 1.21 fixes an issue with the GPS localiser. GPS coordinates for calculating sunrise and sunset times are now obtained much more rapidly. This is an essential bug fix.

Great! Missing desktop widget Great app to use the Badí Calendari especially now that Bahais want to use it more thoughtfully. It would be a great addition for this app to have a Widget that could be added to the desktop in order to quickly view the current date in Badí calendar. In the other hand, I hope it will soon enough be updated in order to add the new instructions from the House of Justice in their message of July 10th, 2014.
