Fasting and Feasts!

Updated: Sep 16, 2019

In the Fetha Negest* fasting is defined as follows: “ Fasting is abstinence from food, and is observed by man at certain times determined by law, to attain forgiveness of sins and much reward, obeying thus the one who fixed the law. Fasting (also) serves to weaken the force of concupiscence so that (the body) may obey the rational soul.”
