Contradictions

Bahā’u’llāh:
“Contradiction has and will not ever have a way in the sanctified realm of the Divine Manifestations.”

Reference: Bahā’u’llāh, Badī`, p. 126.

1. Is the Structure of the UHJ Novel?

Shoghi: The Baha’i administrative system is unique.

Reference: Shoghi Effendi, The World Order of Bahā’u’llāh, p. 152 & 157.

Bahā’u’llāh: Copy the British administration systems.

Reference: Bahā’u’llāh, Tablets of Bahā’u’llāh Revealed After the Kitāb-i-Aqdas, p. 93.

`Abdu’l-Bahā: Copy the European administration systems.

Reference: `Abdu’l-Bahā, Makātīb (Egypt), vol. 3, p. 501.

 

2. Are the Decisions of the UHJ Free from Error?

Shoghi, `Abdu’l-Bahā, and Bahā’u’llāh: The UHJ is under the protection of the unerring guidance of God.

Reference: Shoghi Effendi, The World Order of Bahā’u’llāh, p. 23; Bahā’u’llāh, The Kitābi Aqdas, pp. 90–91;`Abdu’l-Bahā, Some Answered Questions, p. 172.

Shoghi: If the members of the UHJ make an erroneous decision, the Guardian must correct them.

Reference: Shoghi Effendi, The World Order of Bahā’u’llāh, p. 150.

 

3. Is It Possible to Separate the Guardian from the Universal House of Justice?

Shoghi: The Guardian is inseparable from the Universal House of Justice.

Reference: Shoghi Effendi, Tauqī’āt mubāraki khiṭāb bi aḥibbā’ sharq, p. 301.

Baha’ism in its current state lacks any credibility because it has no Guardian.

 

4. Are Baha’is Allowed to Participate in Political Matters?

Bahā’u’llāh and `Abdu’l-Bahā: Baha’is must not interfere in political and government matters and must not utter a single word about political matters, even privately amongst themselves. Who that does so is not a Baha’i.

Reference: `Abd al-Ḥamīd Ishrāq Khāwarī, Ganjīniy-i ḥudūd wa aḥkām, chap. 52, pp. 335–337.

Shoghi: Baha’is are allowed to vote to political parties.

Reference: Helen Bassett Hornby, Lights of Guidance: A Bahā’ī Reference File, chap. XXXIX, no. 1443.

 

5. Who Will Govern the Baha’i Kingdom?

Shoghi: Baha’is will rule the world.

Reference: Shoghi Effendi, The World Order of Bahā’u’llāh, p. 157.

`Abdu’l-Bahā and Bahā’u’llāh: Baha’is must not interfere in political and government matters and must not utter a single word about political matters, even privately amongst themselves. Who does so is not a Baha’i.

Reference: `Abd al-Ḥamīd Ishrāq Khāwarī, Ganjīniy-i ḥudūd wa aḥkām, chap. 52, pp. 335–337.

 

6. Obeying the Government

`Abdu’l-Bahā: Obey the Government in all matters. This order needs no interpretation.

Reference: `Abd al-Ḥamīd Ishrāq Khāwarī, Ganjīniy-i ḥudūd wa aḥkām, chap. 75, p. 463–464.

Shoghi: Disobey government orders in matters of faith even if the result is your death or banishment.

Reference: ( From a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi to an individual believer, February 11, 1934),” Helen Bassett Hornby, Lights of Guidance: A Bahā’ī Reference File, chap. XXXIX, no. 1455.

 

7. Baha’i Prophecies Fulfilled?

`Abdu’l-Bahā: The guardians are Shoghi’s lineal descendants.

Reference: `Abdu’l-Bahā, The Will and Testament of ‘Abdu’l-Bahā, p. 11.

But, Shoghi dies and leaves behind no descendants!

`Abdu’l-Bahā: Shoghi must appoint the next Guardian whilst alive.

Reference: `Abdu’l-Bahā, The Will and Testament of ‘Abdu’l-Bahā, p. 12.

But, Shoghi dies without appointing a Guardian.

Shoghi: The Guardian is inseparable from the UHJ.

Reference: The World Order of Bahā’u’llāh, p. 148 & 150

But, A Guardian no longer exists!
