Baha’i Blog Quiz: The Fast (Part 1)

As millions of Baha’is around the world are currently taking part in the annual fasting period, the team here at Baha’i Blog thought it would be great to brush up on our knowledge about the Baha’i Fast by having another Baha’i Blog Quiz!

The Baha’i Fast falls during the month of Ala – the last month of the Baha’i calendar. During these 19 days, Baha’is – with the exception of women who are nursing or pregnant, the elderly, children, the sick, those travelling and those engaged in heavy labour – abstain from food and drink between sunrise and sunset. While this abstention from food and drink is a test of one’s will and discipline, the Fast is not just about abstaining from food but primarily, a spiritual practice.

  3. I took the quiz/test, and it cheated… When I clicked on Ayyam-i-Ha it immediately jumped to! So I got 80%??
