Joe Goldberg Wishes ‘You’ Ramadan
A Twitter user pointed out a picture from his latest shoot. Where the actor is seen wearing a long Arabic-style gown. He shared the image with a caption saying, “I thought man converted to Islam for a second. Happy Ramadan brother.”
One of my favorite takes. (You’re not too far off, I just finished fasting as a Bahá’í for our month of ‘Alá) Happy Fasting this Ramadan fam https://t.co/ofh28WrAo8

Penn Badgley was quick to take notice of the fan’s tweet which he shared on his handle responding to the fan saying that he recently fasted for Alá.
“One of my favorites takes. (You’re not too far off, I just finished fasting as a Bahá’í for our month of ‘Alá) Happy Fasting this Ramadan fam.”
So, no Penn Badgley hasn’t converted to Islam but he certainly was fasting but not for Ramadan.
What Is Fasting For Alá?
Alá is the nineteenth month in the Badi calendar (the calendar used in the Baháʼí Faith is a solar calendar consisting of nineteen months and four or five intercalary days, with the new year at the moment of the Northern spring equinox).
For Bahá’ís, fasting is observed from sunrise to sunset during the Bahá’í month of ‘Ala’ (Loftiness), between March 1st/2nd through March 19th/20th, which immediately precedes the Bahá’í New Year. It is a time of prayer, meditation, and spiritual rejuvenation.
