30 The Traveller Not Bound By The Fast #16

The minimum duration of a journey which exempts the believer from fasting

is defined by Baha'u'llah (Q and A 22 and 75). The details of this

provision are summarized in the Synopsis and Codification, section


Shoghi Effendi has clarified that while travellers are exempt from

fasting, they are free to fast if they so wish. He also indicated that the

exemption applies during the whole period of one's travel, not just the

hours one is in a train or car, etc.
