nineteen days

coming soon

Posted in the fast - 2013 by leila on February 20, 2013

We are hoping to post pictures of the dawns and dusks of thirty-eight fasting experiences, starting the night of Saturday, 2 March 2013, Pacific 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.

    Marvelous.  I’m so glad you are continuing this year also – especially since I just discovered your site. 

    I suppose you all choose the contributors and I think that’s excellent, but, just in case, I would love to contribute if there is the option to do so.

    Happy Ayyam-i-Ha Friends! Here is a link to two pieces written by Ruhiyyih Khanum – some 40 years apart – wherein she shares her reflections on a prayer of Baha’u’llah’s revealed for the Baha’i Fast. With love to all during this special season, Paul

      Thank you so much, Paul, for those pieces! I loved reading them. Have you been reading The Maxwells of Montreal volumes (by Violette Nakhjavani)? They are wonderful.
