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.

In Conversation: Coexistence in the Arab Region

July 16, 2023, in Audio > Podcasts, by

The Baha’i World News Service (BWNS) has launched a new podcast series called “In Conversation”. In the latest podcast episode, two representatives of the Baha’i International Community (BIC) discuss contributions of Baha’i communities in the Arab region to the discourse on coexistence—a topic that has come to the forefront of public consciousness in recent years. Saba Haddad and Hatem El-Hady, representatives of the Geneva and Cairo Offices of the BIC respectively, explore several concepts and ideas relevant to conversations on fostering coexistence, including the constructive role of religion in contemporary society, the equality of women and men, and the inherent oneness of humanity.

You can read all about this new podcast series and this episode in an article by the Baha’i World News Service.
