Baha’i Fasting | [Elevated & Meaningful]

In this video I share the significance of Baha’i the Fast and obligatory prayer. Truly, fasting and the obligatory prayer help the progress of our souls. They also assist with its transcendence from the material things of this earthly temporary existence. There are many spiritual strengths and benefits one can derive from fasting and the obligatory prayer that most likely will be better appreciated once we move onto the next world, the spiritual world.

Importance of Obligatory Prayer and Fasting

Fasting, said ‘Abdu’l-Bahá “is the cause of awakening man. The heart becomes tender and the spirituality of man increases. This is produced by the fact that man’s thoughts will be confined to the commemoration of God, and through this awakening and stimulation surely ideal advancements follow”.1

‘Abdu’l-Bahá, cited in Star of the West, vol. 3, p. 305

    Thank you, Sarv. I have just one question: early in the video you stated that fasting is for people who are well-off so that they can know what it is to be destitute. I’ve never heard that before. Is there a reference to it in the Writings?

    Hi, Sarv,
    Just to note: Short Obligatory Prayer is said between noon and sunset daily and sitting down facing the Qiblih after preforming your ablution. I think you said between dawn and sunset.

  3. Sarv Mithaqiyan says:

    That is totally my mistake! I will try to delete that part.

    I hope you don’t mind me making this comment. Please redo this video and correct your possible mistakes and talk about topics with certainty, rather than saying: ” I think…” Otherwise this is a great video. well done for making it. I would love to share the edited version. 🙂

    The writings are always sweet and excellent but I don’t know how much we Bahai’s understand the secret of all the mysteries of God ?
