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.
