- 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.
Ambassador to Humanity is a podcast series of nine episodes in honor of the centenary of the passing of Abdu’l-Baha.
