The Ascension of Bahá'u'lláh is commemorated annually by Bahá'ís on 13 Azamat in the Bahá'í calendar, which corresponds to 29 May in the Gregorian calendar.

The day marks the peaceful passing on of Bahá'u'lláh, the founder of the Bahá'í Faith, on 29 May 1892. It also commemorates his teachings. Bahá'ís should refrain from usual work on this day, and often observe it by reading or chanting from their scriptures.[1]
