Importance of Obligatory Prayer & Fasting

Extracts from the Bahá'í Writings

A Compilation of Extracts from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, the Báb, and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá and the Letters of Shoghi Effendi and the Universal House of Justice. Prepared by the Research Department of the Universal House of Justice, 2000.

The Universal House of Justice, in reviewing the further applicability of the laws of Bahá’u’lláh in the course of the past four years, determined that it is imperative for all Bahá’ís "to deepen their awareness of the blessings conferred by the laws which directly foster the devotional life of the individual and, thus, of the community." Among these laws are obligatory prayer and fasting which have been characterised by the Blessed Beauty as "two wings to man’s life."

This present selection of newly authorised translations has been drawn from the vast ocean of the original Writings of Bahá’u’lláh and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. It is intended to further enhance the believers’ insight into the far-reaching significance of these two great laws.
