The Bahá'í calendar consists of nineteen months with nineteen days each. 

The Báb, the founder of the Bahá'í Faith, stated that the last month would be a period of fasting. 

During the period from 2nd March to 20th March

 

the members of the Bahá'í Faith fast from sunrise to sunset.  During the period the Baha'is go without food, drink and smoking from sunrise to sunset. 

The purpose of the fast is to invigorate the soul and bring the person closer to God. 

The fast is binding on all Baha'I men and women between the ages of 15 and 70. 

The Bahá'í fast is similar to the Christian Lent, the Jewish Yom Kippur, and the Muslim Ramadan.
