Oneness of Mankind; Contradictions and Conclusions

Bahaullah said – “Contradiction has and will not ever have a way in the sanctified realm of the Divine Manifestations.”

1. Is the Principle of Oneness of Humanity Novel?
Abdul Baha: The Oneness of the World of Humanity is a special teaching of Bahaullah.
Abdul Baha: The Oneness of Humanity is not novel and was the basis of the teachings of the Divine Prophets.

“In all religious teachings of the past the human world has been represented as divided into two parts: one known as the people of the Book of God, or the pure tree, and the other the people of infidelity and error, or the evil tree. The former were considered as belonging to the faithful, and the others to the hosts of the irreligious and infidel-one part of humanity the recipients of divine mercy, and the other the object of the wrath of their Creator. Bahaullah removed this by proclaiming the oneness of the world of humanity, and this principle is specialized in His teachings, for He has submerged all mankind in the sea of divine generosity,” Abdul Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 454.

“The foundation laid by all Prophets, is the foundation of Bahaullah and that foundation is the Oneness of Humanity,” Abdul Baha, Khatabat (Tehran), vol. 2, p. 286; “All divine prophets struggled for the Oneness of Humanity and served humanity. For the foundation of the divine teachings is the Oneness of Humanity. Moses served the Oneness of Humanity, Jesus established the Oneness of Humanity, Mohammad declared the Oneness of Humanity. The Bible, Torah, and Quran established the foundation of the Oneness of Humanity,” Abdul Baha, Khatabat (Egypt), vol. 1, pp. 18-19


2. Are Black Africans Cows or Humans?
Abdul Baha: All of humanity are members of the human species.
Abdul Baha: Black Africans that have not been nurtured are cows that God has created with human faces.

Abdu’l-Baha, Khatabat (Tehran), vol. 2, pp. 145-146.

“The [black Africans] are cows that God has created with human faces,” Abdul Baha, Khatabat (Tehran), vol. 3, p. 48.


3. Are Africans All Uncivilized, Wild Savages, and without Common-Sense?
Abdul Baha: God created all humans from clay and did not put any differences. He created everyone the same and has put no differences in any grace or mercy.
Abdul Baha: The inhabitants of a land like Africa are all like wild savages and land-dwelling animals that lack common-sense and knowledge.

“The God of the world created all [humans] from clay and created everyone from one element, created all from one progeny, created all in one land, and created in the shadow of one sky, and made all emotions shared, and did not put any differences. He created everyone the same and gives all sustenance, nurtures/brings up all, protects all, and is kind to all. He has put no differences in any grace or mercy,” `Abd al-HHamid Ishraq Khawari, Payam-i malakut, p. 42 (citing Abdul Baha’).

“The inhabitants of a land like Africa are all like wild savages and land-dwelling animals that lack common-sense and knowledge and are all wild. There is not a single wise and civilized person among them,” Abdul Baha, Makatib (Egypt), vol. 1, pp. 331; “The wild tribes have no superiority over animals. For example what is the difference between African blacks and American blacks? The [black Africans] are cows that God has created with human faces. The [black Americans] are civilized, intelligent, and have culture . . .” Abdul Baha, Khatabat (Tehran), vol. 3, p. 48


4. Do Turks Deserve Ridiculous Answers?
Abdul Baha: We are all divine sheep and no one has any superiority over another.
Abdul Baha: Turks deserve ridiculous answers.

“The second principle is the Oneness of Humanity: all humans are divine sheep and God is the kind shepherd who has utter compassion towards all the sheep and has made no distinction [between them],” Abdul Baha, Makatib, vol. 3, p. 67.

“When Djemal Pasha . . . reached Acre and asked to see me, I mounted a donkey and headed for his home. As soon as he saw me, he greeted me and sat me next to him and without hesitation said: ‘You are a corrupter of religion and that is why the government of Iran exiled you here . . .’ I thought to myself that he is a Turk and I must give him a ridiculous and silencing answer,” Asad-Allah Fazil Mazandarani, Asrar al-athar khususi, vol. 3, p. 42-43


5. Is He a Turk?!
Abdul Baha: Don’t say he is a Turk! We are all God’s servants.
Abdul Baha: He is a Turk and deserves a ridiculous answer!

“When there is oneness of humanity how can we have differences by saying that [person] is German, this is British, this is French, this is Turkish, this one is Roman, and that one is Iranian?” Abdul Baha, Khatabat (Egypt), vol. 1, p. 160; “One must never say this [person] is English, that is German, that is French, and this is Italian. Never utter these words for you are all God’s servants and maids,” Abdul Baha, Khatabat (Egypt), vol. 1, p. 75.

Asrar al-athar khususi, vol. 3, p. 42-43


7. Good Tree and Bad Tree?
Abdul Baha: My father said there is no such thing as a good tree and a bad tree. He submerged everyone in the sea of divine generosity.
Bahaullah: Deniers of Baha’ism are like bad trees that deserve to be burned!

“Bahaullah expressed the oneness of humankind, whereas in all religious teachings of the past the human world has been represented as divided into two parts: one known as the people of the Book of God, or the pure tree, and the other the people of infidelity and error, or the evil tree. The former were considered as belonging to the faithful, and the others to the hosts of the irreligious and infidel-one part of humanity the recipients of divine mercy, and the other the object of the wrath of their Creator. Bahaullah removed this by proclaiming the oneness of the world of humanity, and this principle is specialized in His teachings, for He has submerged all mankind in the sea of divine generosity.”

Abdul Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 454.

“Anyone who has a garden will not allow the dry trees to remain in the garden and will definitely cut them and throw them in fire, for dry wood is only worthy of fire. Thus, O inhabitants of my orchard, protect yourselves from the wicked poisonous breath and void breeze which is socializing with the polytheists (deniers of Baha’ism) and the unaware (ghafil),” `Abd a l-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ma’idiy-i asimani, vol. 8, p. 39


8. Socializing with Non-Baha’is!
Bahaullah: “Consort with all religions with amity and concord.”
Abdul Baha: All humans must interact with each-other with utter affection.
Bahaullah: Don’t you dare socialize with deniers of Baha’ism and the unaware (who are basically all non-Baha’is).

Bahaullah, The Kitabi Aqdas, p. 72. “All humanity are the creation of one God and all the sheep (meaning the humans) are under the shadow of one shepherd and one shepherd administers all. Thus, the divine sheep must interact with each other with utter affection. If one wanders away, they should return him and accompany him,”

Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Payam-i malakut, p. 44 (citing Abdul Baha’)


9- Are Non-Baha’is Animals in the Presence of God?
Bahaullah: Non-Baha’is are animals in the presence of God.
Bahaullah: Anyone who has any sense knows that everyone is equal in the presence of God.

“Do not socialize with those who deny God (meaning non-Baha’is) and his signs and keep away from their kind,” `Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ma’idiy-i asimani, vol. 8, p. 39; “It is incumbent on ever soul to keep away from the wicked breath of the polytheists (deniers of Baha’ism),” `Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ma’idiy-i asimani, vol. 8, p. 39; “Know that God has forbidden his friends from meeting with the polytheists (deniers of Baha’ism) and hypocrites,” `Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ma’idiy-i asimani, vol. 4, p. 280; “It is not permitted to interact, speak, or meet with those individuals that have turned away and made their objections apparent. This is an order revealed from the heavens of an Ancient Commander,” `Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ma’idiy-i asimani, vol. 8, p. 74; “Run away from he who you do not find my love in his heart, keep away from him, and keep a great distance between you.,” Bahaullah, Athar-i Qalam-i A`la, vol. 2, p. 345 (surat al-a??ab); “Cleanse your eyes from [seeing] the deniers and the polytheists (meaning non-Baha’is) and turn away from them,” Bahaullah, Athar-i Qalam-i A`la, vol. 2, no. 81, p. 477; “Break all ties with the polytheists (deniers of Baha’ism),” Bahaullah, Majmu`iy-i alwa?-i mubarak-ih, p. 90.; “O SON OF DUST! Beware! Walk not with the ungodly and seek not fellowship with him, for such companionship turneth the radiance of the heart into infernal fire,”

Bahaullah, The Hidden Words of Bahaullah, p. 42, no. 57.

“Today, according to the decree of the Point of Bayan (meaning the Bab), those individuals who turn away from this Novel Affair (meaning Baha’ism) are deprived of the garb of being called and described [as humans?] and are assembled and mentioned as animals in the presence of God,” Bahaullah, Badi`, p. 213

“Know that none of the servants who have had any sense, have never held the belief that those who face towards [Baha’ism] (muqbil) and those who turn away from it (mu`riz); or monotheists (meaning Baha’is) and polytheists (meaning non-Baha’is), have the same status and rank. What you have heard [contrary to this] or have seen in the previous books, was meant in the presence of God,” Bahaullah, Majmu`iy-i alwa?-i mubarak-ih, p. 154.


10. Non-Baha’is Are Animals
Abdul Baha: All of humanity are members of the human species. We should not consider ourselves greater than others, even those who are not believers.
Bahaullah: Non-Baha’is are animals. Don’t even think about calling them humans!

Abdu’l-Baha, Khatabat (Tehran), vol. 2, pp. 145-146. “we must not desire ourselves and must regard others as better than ourselves, even those who are not believers,” `Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ganjiniy-i hudud wa ahkam, chap. 49, p. 326.

“Today, according to the decree of the Point of Bayan (meaning the Bab), those individuals who turn away from this Novel Affair (meaning Baha’ism) are deprived of the garb of being called and described [as humans?] and are assembled and mentioned as animals in the presence of God,” Bahaullah, Badi`, p. 213; “Do not see the polytheists (deniers of Baha’ism) but as earthworms and their sounds but the buzzing of flies,” Bahaullah, Athar-i Qalam-i A`la, vol. 1, no. 20, p. 183; “O group of polytheists (deniers of Baha’ism), if you take pride in your name remaining amongst the animals or being mentioned amongst the livestock, then take pride in that for you are worthy of it,” Bahaullah, Athar-i Qalam-i A`la, vol. 2, no. 81, p. 452; “Oh you donkeys! Whatever God says is the truth and will not become void by the words of the polytheists (deniers of Baha’ism),” Bahaullah, Badi`, p. 174; “When the one who turned away from God halted (in accepting me) and fell off the path, in that moment his body left the garb of humanness and appeared and became visible in the skin of animals. Sanctified is He who changes the beings how he likes,” Bahaullah, Badi`, p. 110.

“From this day, any individual that mentions as human a single person from those who deny me-whether that [denier] has a high or low stature-they will be excluded from all of (God’s) Merciful Graces, let alone trying to prove [those deniers] have dignity or stature,” Bahaullah, Badi`, p. 140.


11. Non-Baha’is Are Worthless Pebbles and Baha’is Are Precious Jewels
Bahaullah: “You are all the fruits of one tree and the leaves of one branch.”
Bahaullah: “My friends are the pearls of [this] order and all others are earthly pebbles . . . a single one of these (Baha’is) is more precious than a million others (non-Baha’is).”

Bahaullah, Majmu`iy-i alwah-i mubarak-ih, p. 265.

Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ma’idiy-i asimani, vol. 4, pp. 353.


12. Does God’s Grace Apply to All Humans?
Abdul Baha: God’s Grace applies to all humans even though some are ignorant and must be taught, some are unaware and should be awakened.
Bahaullah: Whoever calls a single person of those that have not accepted Baha’ism a human will be deprived of God’s Grace.

“The human species are all in the shadow of the Lord’s mercy. At most some are imperfect and must be perfected, are ignorant and must be taught, are sick and must be treated, are asleep and must be awakened. We should not be angry at an infant for being an infant. We should nurture him. We should not be angry at a sick person for not being well. We should have the greatest mercy and kindness towards him. From these [examples] it is apparent that the enmity between religions should be completely wiped out; oppression and injustice should be removed and instead, the greatest amount of kindness and affection should flow,” Abdul Baha, Khatabat (Tehran), vol. 2, pp. 145-146.

“From this day, any individual that mentions as human a single person from those who deny me-whether that [denier] has a high or low stature-they will be excluded from all of (God’s) Merciful Graces, let alone trying to prove [those deniers] have dignity or stature,”Bahaullah, Badi`, p. 140.


13. Accompaniment or Banishment?
Abdul Baha: If someone is separated, he should be returned and accompanied.
Shoghi Effendi: No one is allowed to speak with those who have been shunned, even their family members.

“Thus, the divine sheep must interact with each other with utter affection. If one wanders away they should return him and accompany him,” `Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Payam-i malakut, p.44 (citing Abdul Baha’).

“A question was asked about the friends that, as a result of their ignorance and neglect, had been excluded from administrative affairs about whether they should be invited to public assemblies or not? He (Shoghi) said, ‘Inviting them is not permitted.’ And it was asked about those that had been excluded from the community whether greeting and speaking with them was permitted? He replied, ‘If they have been spiritually excommunicated speaking with them is not permitted in any way,’” Shoghi Effendi, Tauqi’at Mubaraki (1945-1952), pp. 94-95.


14. Kindness or Torment?
Abdul Baha: Be kind to any creature that has a soul.
Bahaullah: Be a certain torment for the disbelievers and non-Baha’is.

“God the Exalted has put the crown of grace and beneficence on man’s head so that he shows kindness and affection to all things that possess a soul and to make apparent the greatness of the world of humanity,” Abdul Baha, Makatib (Tehran), vol. 8, p. 227.

“And you, O friends of God, be clouds of grace for those who believe in God and his signs, and be certain torment for those who do not believe in God and are polytheists (deniers of Baha’ism),” Bahaullah, Majmu`iy-i alwa?-i mubarak-ih, p. 216


15. Kindness or Beating?
Abdul Baha: All are the creations of God and God is kind to all. So why should we be unkind?
Abdul Baha: My father (Bahaullah) told his companions to hit the kabob seller in the mouth because he merely said the Babis have come again.

“All of humanity are members of the human species. They are all servants of God. They have all been created by God. They are all divine children. God gives sustenance to all of them; nurtures all of them; is compassionate to all of them; why should we be uncompassionate?” Abdul Baha, Khatabat (Tehran), vol. 2, pp. 145-146.

“When his holiness returned from Sulaymaniyah, he was strolling in the street one day with the late Aqa Mirza Muhammad Quli. A Kabob seller quietly said, ‘These Babis have appeared again!’ The Blessed Beauty said to Mirza Muhammad Quli, ‘Hit him in the mouth!’ Mirza Muhammad Quli grabbed his beard and started hitting him in the head,” Habib Mu’ayyad, Khairati Habib, vol. 1, p. 266


16. Should We Utter Rude Words?
Bahaullah: Do not utter profanities at any one and do not make anyone upset.
Abdul Baha: In the fight over the succession of his father, calls his brother and his followers names such as flies, earthworm, bat, raven, fox . . .

“Oh followers of Baha! You were-and are-the starting point of affection and the beginning place of divine favors. Do not stain your tongue by swearing and cursing . . . do not be the cause of sadness,” `Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ganjiniy-i hudud wa ahkam, chap. 47, p. 322.

“They are senile like arrogant fools and not seashells full of gems. They are ecstatic from the smell of garbage like dung beetles and not from the scent of a flower of gardens. They are lowly earthworms buried beneath the great earth not high flying birds. They are bats of darkness not the searchlights of clear horizons. They always make excuses and like ravens, have nested in the landfills of fall (Autumn) . . . so you Oh true friend and spiritual helper . . . attack these unjust foxes and like a high soaring eagle drive away these hateful ravens from this field,” Abdul Baha, Makatib (Egypt), vol. 1, pp. 442-443.


17. Should Traitors Be given Refuge?
Abdul Baha: “Give traitors shelter and refuge.”
Abdul Baha: Do not be kind to traitors, for kindness will cause them to revolt.

Abdul Baha, Makatib, vol. 3, p. 160.

“One cannot be kind to a tyrant, traitor, or thief, for kindness will make them revolt instead of awakening them. The more you show affection to a liar, the more lies he will tell,” Abdul Baha, Makatib (Egypt), vol. 3, p. 211


18. Should We Be Polite or Rude?
Bahaullah and Abdul Baha: Whoever is without manners, it is better that they be destroyed. We must not insult people.
Bahaullah referring to his brother: Oh donkey , oh cow, Oh polytheist, dung beetle, Satan, fly . . .

“Politeness is one of mankind’s traits that distinguishes him from other [creatures]. He who has no success in [being polite] then his demise certainly has-and will have-priority over his existence,” Bahaullah, Badi`, pp. 203-204.

“The divine principles in this luminous era are such that one must not insult anyone,” Abdul Baha, Makatib (Egypt), vol. 1, p. 355.

“Oh you donkeys! Whatever God says is the truth and will not become void by the words of the polytheists,” Bahaullah, Badi`, p. 174.

“When Mirza Ya?ya Azal started opposing the works, deeds, and words of his esteemed brother (Bahaullah) in Edirne . . . he plunged from his [high] stature and the rank of union and agreement [that he had with Bahaullah] and was gradually- in the tablets, works, and revelations [from Bahaullah]- referred to with codes, references, and names such as the polytheist, the calf, the scarab (dung beetle), the tyrant, the Satan, the devil, the foul swamp, the buzzing of a fly, and similar names,” Asad-Allah Fa?il Mazandarani, Asrar al-athar khususi, vol. 5, p. 345-346.


19. Should We Be Kind to Wolves?
Abdul Baha: Act with kindness towards bloodthirsty wolves.
Abdul Baha: Do not be kind with wolves, for it is betrayal of the sheep.

“Make bloodthirsty wolves smell the scent of musk like gazelles,” Abdul Baha, Makatib, vol. 3, p. 160.

“If you are kind to a wolf you are betraying the sheep because it will destroy a herd of sheep. If you give a dog that bites the opportunity, it will kill thousands of humans and animals. Thus showing affection to savage animals is equal to being unfair to oppressed animals,” Abdul Baha, Makatib (Egypt), vol. 3, p. 212.


20. Those Who Deny Baha’u’llah Are Bastards Who Will Go to Hell
Abdul Baha: “As soon as we see ourselves superior to others, we will have gotten distant from the path of salvation and prosperity.”
Bahaullah: Whoever denies Baha’ism or is Bahaullah’s enemy, is a bastard who will go to hell.
The result of these words: All Jews, Christians, Muslims, and all other people who do not accept Baha’ism are Bastards.

Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ganjiniy-i Hudud wa ahkam, chap. 49, p. 326.

“Whoever denies this apparent exalted luminous grace (meaning Baha’ism), it is worthy that he asks his state from his mother and he will soon be returned to the bottom of hell,” `Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ma’idiy-i asimani, vol. 4, pp. 355 and `Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ganj-i shaygan, p. 78; “Whoever has the enmity of this servant (meaning Bahaullah) in his heart, certainly Satan has entered their mother’s bed,” `Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ganj-i shaygan, p. 79.


21. Must We Be Kind towards Tyrants or Should We Punish Them?
Abdul Baha: Be kind to tyrants and oppressors!
Abdul Baha: Punish tyrants so they do not revolt.

“Apply ointment to the wounds of tyrants and heal the pain of oppressors,” Asad-Allah Fa?il Mazandarani, Amr wa khalq, vol. 3,p. 228.

“One cannot be kind to a tyrant, traitor, or thief, for kindness will make them revolt instead of awakening them. The more you show affection to a liar, the more lies he will tell,” Abdul Baha, Makatib (Egypt), vol. 3, p. 211


22. Kindness towards the Opposition or Enmity?
Abdul Baha: We must be kind to the enemies and love the deniers.
Abdul Baha: Meeting with the deniers of Baha’ism is forbidden.

“We must . . . warn the unaware, show compassion to the enemies, and love the foes,” Abdul Baha, Makatib (Egypt), vol. 1, p. 288.

“Know that God has forbidden his friends from meeting with the polytheists (deniers of Baha’ism) and hypocrites,” `Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ma’idiy-i asimani, vol. 4, pp. 280.


23. How to Deal with the Unaware
Abdul Baha: We must warn the unaware.
Bahaullah: Protect yourself from the wicked poisonous breath of the unaware and do not socialize with them.

“We must . . . warn the unaware, show compassion to the enemies, and love the foes,” Abdul Baha, Makatib (Egypt), vol. 1, p. 288.

“Thus, O inhabitants of my orchard, protect yourselves from the wicked poisonous breath and void breeze which is socializing with the polytheists (deniers of Baha’ism) and the unaware (ghafil),” `Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ma’idiy-i asimani, vol. 8, p. 39.


24. Is Shunning Bad?
Bahaullah: We have nullified anything that as a cause for shunning.
Bahaullah: Shun my enemies!
Abdul Baha: Why are the communities engaged in shunning people?! Shunning has a demoralizing effect.
Abdul Baha: Shun those who protest against the Guardian.

“Whatsoever hath led the children of men to shun one another, and hath caused dissensions and divisions amongst them, hath, through the revelation of these words, been nullified and abolished,” Bahaullah, Gleanings from the Writings of Bahaullah, p. 95. “Shun any man in whom you perceive enmity for this Servant, though he may appear in the garb of piety of the former and later people, or may arise to the worship of the two worlds,” Abdul Baha, Baha’i World Faith-Selected Writings of Bahaullah and Abdul Baha (Abdul Baha’s Section Only), p. 431.

“One thing remains to be said: it is that the communities are day and night occupied in making penal laws, and in preparing and organizing instruments and means of punishment. They build prisons, make chains and fetters, arrange places of exile and banishment, and different kinds of hardships and tortures, and think by these means to discipline criminals, whereas, in reality, they are causing destruction of morals and perversion of characters,” Abdul Baha, Some Answered Questions, p. 271; “The community, on the contrary, ought day and night to strive and endeavor with the utmost zeal and effort to accomplish the education of men, to cause them day by day to progress and to increase in science and knowledge, to acquire virtues, to gain good morals and to avoid vices, so that crimes may not occur. At the present time the contrary prevails; the community is always thinking of enforcing the penal laws, and of preparing means of punishment, instruments of death and chastisement, places for imprisonment and banishment; and they expect crimes to be committed. This has a demoralizing effect,” Abdul Baha, Some Answered Questions, p. 272.

“The Hands of the Cause of God must be ever watchful and so soon as they find anyone beginning to oppose and protest against the Guardian of the Cause of God, cast him out from the congregation of the people of Baha and in no wise accept any excuse from him. How often hath grievous error been disguised in the garb of truth, that it might sow the seeds of doubt in the hearts of men!” Abdul Baha, The Will and Testament of Abdul Baha, p. 12.


25. To Wish Death or Not to Wish Death?
Bahaullah: Don’t wish unto others what you do not wish for yourself.
Bahaullah: “Die with anger, Oh he who denies this grace.” “Die with anger O you denying polytheist.”

“He should not wish for others that which he doth not wish for himself, nor promise that which he doth not fulfil [sic],” Bahaullah, Gleanings from the Writings of Bahaullah, p. 266.

Bahaullah, Badi`, p. 213.

Bahaullah, Athar-i Qalam-i A`la, vol. 1, no. 64, p. 276.


26. Why Have All of Baha’u’llah’s Descendants Been Shunned and Excommunicated?
Bahaullah: If the root of a tree becomes corrupt so do all its branches (aghsan) and twigs and fruits and leaves.
By the time Shoghi died all of Bahaullah’s blood descendants who are referred to as branches (Aghsan) had become corrupt and were shunned from the Baha’i community!

“”You are like a spring of water. When its source becomes corrupt so do the streams that separate from it. Fear God and be pious. Likewise, look at man. When his heart becomes corrupt so do all his limbs and organs. Likewise, if the root of a tree becomes corrupt so do its branches and twigs (aghsan and afnan) and its leaves and its fruit,” Bahaullah, Athar-i Qalam-i A`la, vol. 2, no. 90, p. 603.


27. Oneness of Humanity in the Baha’i Kingdom
The earth will be cleansed from the filth of the deniers of Baha’ism and Bahaullah’s followers will be feared by the people. Thieves will be kicked out of the cities and deprived of all rights. Arsonists will be burned alive, executed, or given life imprisonment.

“God will soon take out from the sleeves of power the hands of strength and dominance and will make the Servant (Bahaullah) victorious and will cleanse the earth from the filth of every rejected polytheist (denier of Baha’ism). And they will stand by the cause and will conquer the lands using my mighty eternal name and will enter the lands and they will be feared by all the servants,” Bahaullah, Athar-i Qalam-i A`la, vol. 2, no. 90, p. 587.

“”Exile and imprisonment are decreed for the thief, and, on the third offence, place ye a mark upon his brow so that, thus identified, he may not be accepted in the cities of God and His countries,” Bahaullah, The Kitabi Aqdas, pp. 35-36. “Should anyone intentionally destroy a house by fire, him also shall ye burn; should anyone deliberately take another’s life, him also shall ye put to death. Take ye hold of the precepts of God with all your strength and power, and abandon the ways of the ignorant. Should ye condemn the arsonist and the murderer to life imprisonment, it would be permissible according to the provisions of the Book. He, verily, hath power to ordain whatsoever He pleaseth,” Bahaullah, The Kitabi Aqdas, p. 203.


28. All the Titles given to Non-Baha’is by Baha’i Leaders
Haters of light, sufferers from spiritual leprosy, unreasonable, unknowledgeable, polytheists, dry wood worthy of fire, possessors of wicked poisonous breath, deniers of God and his signs, hypocrites, ungodly, evil, unhuman, animals, earthworms, livestock, lowly flies, donkeys, dogs, beasts, those who should die with anger, earthly pebbles, people that must be tormented, people who will be cleansed from earth, bastards, children of Satan, manifestations of hell, manifestations of Satan, rising place of Pharaohs, calves, dung beetles, tyrants, devil, foul swamp, senile, bats, ravens, foxes . . .

“It is better not to read books by Covenant-breakers because they are haters of the Light, sufferers from a spiritual leprosy, so to speak. But books by well-meaning yet unenlightened enemies of the Cause can be read so as to refute their charges,” Helen Bassett Hornby, Lights of Guidance: A Baha’i Reference File, chap. XII, no. 628
