Track Name: Every Hour of these Days
Thou hast endowed every hour of these days with a special virtue, inscrutable to all except Thee, whose knowledge embraceth all created things. - Bahá’u’lláh


Fasting is the cause of the elevation of one’s spiritual station.
- Abdu’l-Bahá

Even though outwardly the Fast is difficult and toilsome, yet inwardly it is bounty and tranquillity. - Bahá’u’lláh

...fasting is the supreme remedy and the most great healing for the disease of self and passion. - Bahá’u’lláh

Fasting is essentially a period of meditation and prayer, of spiritual recuperation, during which the believer must strive to make the necessary readjustments in his inner life, and to refresh and reinvigorate the spiritual forces latent in his soul. - Shoghi Effendi cited in the notes to the Kitab-i-Aqdas, page 176.
Track Name: Fasting Prayer
O Divine Providence! As I am abstaining from bodily desires and not occupied with eating and drinking, even so purify and sanctify my heart from the love of anyone save Thyself and shield and protect my soul from corrupt desires and satanic qualities so that my spirit may commune with the breaths of holiness and fast from the mention of all else besides Thee.

- ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
Track Name: Invocation from the Long Fasting Prayer
Thou seest me, O my God, holding to Thy Name, the Most Holy, the Most Luminous, the Most Mighty, the Most Great, the Most Exalted, the Most Glorious, and clinging to the hem of the robe to which have clung all in this world and in the world to come. - Bahá’u’lláh
Track Name: Meditations for the Fast
These are the days of the Fast. Blessed is the one who through the heat generated by the Fast increaseth his love, and who, with joy and radiance, ariseth to perform worthy deeds. Verily, He guideth whomsoever He willeth to the straight path.
- Bahá’u’lláh

There are various stages and stations for the Fast and innumerable effects and benefits are concealed therein. Well is it with those who have attained unto them.
- Bahá’u’lláh

Well is it with you, as you have followed the Law of God and arisen to observe the Fast during these blessed days, for this physical fast is a symbol of the spiritual fast. This Fast leadeth to the cleansing of the soul from all selfish desires, the acquisition of spiritual attributes, attraction to the breezes of the All-Merciful, and enkindlement with the fire of divine love.
– ‘Abdu’l-Bahá

Cling firmly to obligatory prayer and fasting. Verily, the religion of God is like unto heaven; fasting is its sun, and obligatory prayer is its moon.
- Bahá'u'lláh
