The Nineteen Day Fast

This is a Baha'i celebration.

The last month in the Bahá'í calendar, Ala (meaning loftiness), is a time when Bahá'ís fast from sunrise to sunset and spend extra time in prayer.

This month immediately precedes the Bahá'í new year, and the period of fasting is viewed as a time of spiritual preparation for the new year's activities.
