The Fast

  • Baha’is abstain from food and drink between sunrise and sunset for 19 days. 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. The Fast is, primarily, a spiritual practice.

Can you please, please, please do more of these. This was beautiful. I have listened two it at least three times now and I’m going to listen to it over and over again. It would be great to have these for the Hands of the Cause and early believers.

Thank you all. The writer, the reader, and everyone else. 🙂
