June 18, 2023 will mark 40 years since 10 Baha’i women were hanged in Shiraz. Their only ‘crime’ was their refusal to renounce their beliefs in a faith that promotes the principles of gender equality, unity, justice, and truthfulness. This collection highlights Baha’i Blog content relating to the ongoing persecution of Baha’is in Iran.
The Baha’i Fast falls during the month of Ala–the last month of the Baha’i calendar. During these 19 days, Baha’is 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. The Fast is, primarily, a spiritual practice.
Comedian Jordan Raj, (and his cousin Raj), tell us a little about the Baha’i Fast in this fun video called ‘My 19 Days of Fasting’.
Jordan Raj is a comedian and multi-media professional who has a passion for “conscious comedy”. He’s also a part of the Baha’i Blog team, where he’s best know for his Baha’i Blog video series called ‘WHAT’S THAT WORD?‘ where he takes tricky words from the Baha’i Writings and tries to explain them in a fun and informative way.
