One, could you please outline the guidelines for fasting and the various types of fasting that those who are interested can participate in. Thanks!
Please accept my apology for my late reply.
A fast in only what passes 72 hours. Anything under 72 hours is not considered a fast in real terms. So, once a month, those who practice one or more meals a day, fast for three days. We drink only water after sunset. We can have coffee, but please do not fill the cup with cream, milk and sugar and then pour a little coffee on top of that. One may drink a form of tea as well. This is done over the weekend, because most people work during the week.
Please refrain from driving during fasting, as you may kill yourself, from being light headed. Prayer is also good for you during a fast, as it will cause you to call on whatever you believe in to make it through.
I wish you the best of fortune on your fasting. I will strive to post a reminder.
