27 Let The Days In Excess Of The Months Be Placed Before The Month Of Fasting #16






The Badi calendar is based on the solar year of 365 days, 5 hours, and 50
odd minutes. The year consists of 19 months of 19 days each (i.e. 361
days), with the addition of four extra days (five in a leap year). The Bab
did not specifically define the place for the intercalary days in the new
calendar. The Kitab-i-Aqdas resolves this question by assigning the
excess days a fixed position in the calendar immediately preceding the
month of 'Ala, the period of fasting. For further details see the section
on the Baha'i calendar in The Baha'i World, volume XVIII.
