Happy joyous Ayyám-i-Há!

Happy joyous Ayyám-i-Há to all !

“…these days of giving that precede the season of restraint.
Bahá’u’lláh enjoined upon His followers to devote these days to feasting, rejoicing and charity.”

…and talking about the “season of restraint” — the fast: Remember that it starts on the Gregorian March 1st this year. Please spread the news… not all Bahá’ís know it yet.

Note that you can see the sunrise and sunset times of each day according to your current location, as you scroll through your events in the app. This makes it easy to plan according to breakfast and dinner-time — specially in the far north/south where the times change significantly during the fast.

“Known as the Ayyám-i-Há (the Days of Há), the Intercalary Days have the distinction of being associated with “the letter Há”. The abjad numerical value of this Arabic letter is five, which corresponds to the potential number of intercalary days.”

The above quotes are from Bahá’u’lláh in The Kitab-i-Aqdas.
