Baha'i Fast

Saturday, March 2 - Wednesday, March 20

The last month in the Bahá’í calendar, ‘Alá’ (Loftiness), is dedicated to the Bahá’í Fast. During this time, Bahá’ís between 15 and 70 years of age do not eat or drink for 19 days from sunrise to sunset and set aside time for prayer and meditation. Exemptions from the Fast occur for illness, pregnancy, nursing mothers, extended travel and arduous physical labour.
