The Kitab-i-Aqdas refers to a "journey" as being more than nine hours.
It then goes on to discuss the circumstance of stopping in a place for
more or less than a Bayan month. My question is what the "journey" referred
to? Is it the time on the road, or the time away from home? The language
seems to allow either, and I thought someone might know. In essence, the
question is whether someone who flies across the country (6 hours) and
spends two days at a place is required to fast, or is exempt? Any ideas?
