The Baha'i Faith observes a period of fasting as a time for spiritual reflection, prayer, and physical abstention. This annual fast takes place during the last month of the Baha'i calendar, called 'Ala', which falls from March 2nd to March 20th, leading up to the Baha'i New Year on March 21st. During this time, adult Baha'is (those between the ages of 15 and 70) are expected to abstain from food and drink from sunrise to sunset. This physical fast is seen not merely as an act of self-denial but as a outward symbol of a deeper spiritual purpose: to remind individuals of their humility, their need for spiritual nourishment, and the importance of detachment from material desires.
Beyond the physical aspects, the Baha'i fast carries profound spiritual implications. It is considered a time for self-examination, meditation on one's actions and their alignment with Baha'i teachings, and for focusing on one's spiritual growth. The fast is not just about abstaining from food and drink; it is also a period for cleansing the soul, increasing one's piety, and fostering a closer connection with God. Baha'is are encouraged to use this time to read and reflect upon the holy writings, engage in prayer, and perform acts of service. The fast is seen as a spiritual springtime, a period of renewal and refreshment for the soul, preparing Baha'is for the year ahead.
