Daily Reflection – 12 Alá (Loftiness) Fast
March 13, 2019 - March 14, 2019
“O Army of God! A letter signed jointly by all of you hath been received. It was most eloquent and full of flavour, and reading it was a delight.
“Ye had written of the fasting month. Fortunate are ye to have obeyed the commandment of God, and kept this fast during the holy season. For this material fast is an outer token of the spiritual fast; it is a symbol of self-restraint, the withholding of oneself from all appetites of the self, taking on the characteristics of the spirit, being carried away by the breathings of heaven and catching fire from the love of God.”
(‘Selections from the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha’, (Haifa: Baha’i World Centre, 1978), pp. 69-70)
