Dawud This is an interesting issue to talk about since it has many facets. If someone has taken distance from the faith for awhile and committed adultery many times, but later he regrets it and wants to repent and desires to pay what he owes, it will be alot of money(or gold). I don't know how he sh...

New Being you are right about "mark" vs. "branding". I always thought since it is to be put on the forehead, it must be a visual thing, so it can easily be seen and the thief cannot hide it. Also this mark must be something that cannot be removed easily. I don't know if we can say that an electronic...

Thank you all. Would you please also write your thoughts on the second case: branding the head of thief is useless, because of the option of plasitc surgery to the thief.
Do you think of the purpose for this law as a condition which is not met today, making it possible for UHJ to abrogate it?

killing for killing, branding the forehead of the thief ...

... and treating the arsonist in kind : my assumtion is that these laws can't be changed by UHJ , as they are not conditional laws. If this is correct, then how do we answer to these potential questions: - these are harsh laws and not appropriate for our modern world. -in the case of branding the fo...

Guest, who I do'nt know your name when you say: "un-interpretable prophecies", what prophesies in the Bible or koran are you refering to? what type of prophesies do you consider un-interpretable ? how do you know they are un-interpretable? you mentioned the one that says there will be peace and tran...

Thank you Brent for taking your time and being kind to write on this subject. I read what you wrote carefully. Seems to me you thought what I am saying is based on the belief that we can interpret the writings on this subject. I don't know why you thought so. Please tell me if I have said something ...

Hasan It seemed to me that you read my post in a hurry and you didn't notice that when I wrote about Jusus and Moses, I said these were what seemed at the surface . Here is the same thing with emphasis: "He explains why at the surface , Jesus was born due to her mother's sin, why Moses killed someon...

Hasan I don't know why you think it's so hard to understand the reason of Badaa in the Noah story. I think Bahaullah explains it very clearly in Iqan. It's explained over and over in Iqan and in fact the very first half of Iqan revolves around it. Besides Iqan, it's also repeated many times in kitab...

I hope others will also contribute. Thanks Hasan for being the only one helping me here. 1- you said : "I interpret that they also have the task to elucidate... " a-So its just your thought; in other words you have nowhere seen this being mentioned as one of the tasks of UHJ. Well, I would say so at...

Although nobody asked me how this might be that contradictory to clear words of writings I am saying that a prophet may come anytime during this 1000 years, I write about one of the few possible scenarios here: the first thing that might happen is what in Arabic is called "badaa" , or a change in Go...

1-the authority of the UHJ is only on its domain of activities; this issue is not in the domain. You also see on many other issues that when UHJ or even guardian were asked on something, they would would say as an answer that they did'nt know the answer. Their authority doesn't mean that they know a...

Hasan Thanks for your attention and your notes. I don't see anything wrong with a prophet coming at anytime before the end of a 1000 years; it can be 100 years before 1000 years, it can be 100 years from today, or it can be tomorrow. Humans in my opinion have had a jump in their developmental stages...

A prophet may come before the end of a thousand years

The belief of finality of the teachings or prophet of a certain religion has been a test for all major faiths. It brings to mind this problem that what Bahai's will be tested on if they are not being tested by this. They don't believe that their prophet is the last prophet or that Bahai teachings wo...
