nineteen days


Posted in Uncategorized by leila on February 24, 2008

These are, O my Lord, the days in which Thou hast bidden Thy servants to observe the Fast. Blessed is he that observeth the Fast wholly for Thy sake and with absolute detachment from all things except Thee. Assist me and assist them, O my Lord, to obey Thee and to keep Thy precepts. Thou, verily, hast power to do what Thou choosest.


amy and leila will be posting pictures of the dawns and dusks of their fasting experiences, starting the night of Sunday, 2 March 2008, eastern standard time.
the Bahá’í Fast is observed for nineteen days of the year, every year, between the hours of sunrise and sunset—hence the timing of the photographs.
you can read an actual and virtual description of nineteen days here.
we are very excited about this project, so much so that not eating or drinking for thirteen hours a day has become something to which we are actively counting down the sleeps.

Grant, O my Lord, that the fire of Thy love and the heat produced by the fast enjoined by Thee may inflame them in Thy Cause, and make them to be occupied with Thy praise and with remembrance of Thee.
