The Kitáb-i-Aqdas, "the Most Holy Book" or "the Book of Laws" is a central work of Bahá’u’lláh that discusses the establishment of Bahá’í administrative institutions, religious practices, laws of personal status, criminal law, ethical exhortations, social principles, miscellaneous laws .   The Kitáb-i-Aqdas is referred to as "the Mother-Book" of the Bahá'í teachings, and the "Charter of the future world civilization". It is not, however, only a 'book of laws': much of the content deals with other matters, notably ethical exhortations and addresses to .

In His Tablets ‘Abdu’l-Bahá explains the difference between revenge and punishment. He affirms that individuals do not have the right to take revenge, that revenge is despised in the eyes of God, and that the motive for punishment is not vengeance, but the imposition of a penalty for the committed offence. Thus hath it been decreed in the Book, if ye be of them that comprehend. 14 When travelling, if ye should stop and rest in some safe spot, perform ye—men and women alike—a single prostration in place of each unsaid Obligatory Prayer, and while prostrating say “Glorified be God, the Lord of Might and Majesty, of Grace and Bounty”.

This is the Kitab-i-Aqdas, in Arabic with Arabic contains Baha'u'llah's Charter for a New World Order, sets forth the laws of God for the Baha'i dispensation and ordains the necessary institutions through which integrity and unity of His Faith can alone be safeguarded. This project is intended to present a textual analysis of the central book of the Bahá'í Dispensation, Bahá'u'lláh's Kitab-i-Aqdas. This project is no more than a supplement to the authorized text of the Kitab-i-Aqdas, published

The Kitáb-i-Aqdas – The Most Holy Book Bahá’u’lláh’s book of laws, written in Arabic around while He was still imprisoned within the The Kitáb-i-aqdas book of ‘Akká. It was supplemented by later Writings and by Bahá’u’lláh’s replies to a series of questions posed by one of His secretaries. The Kitab-I-Aqdas is regarded as the “Most Holy Book” of our religion for a reason.

With every new revelation of God laws are changed according to the times. These new laws are the key to living a spiritual life ordained by the Creator for that place in history.4/5(15). The Kitáb-i-aqdas book latter ("The Kitab-i-Aqdas: The Most Holy Book") contains obfuscations and distortions designed to protect the fortunes of the Baha'i Faith and preventing the book to cause a drastic falloff in membership, as the text reveals a great disparity between the original message of the founder and what later came to be sold as "The Baha'i Faith."/5(4).

The Kitab'i'Aqdas is The most Holy Book for Baha'is. Baha'u'llah has set forth the laws that will be used "to build anew the whole world". Some are implemented now and some will be for the future of mankind.

flag Like see review. Vicky rated it it was amazing /5. So, the back of the book is actually a description of the Kitab-i-Iqan, a completely different Baha'i book, and furthermore, the description is the first paragraph of that work's wikipedia page.

It was supplemented by later Writings and by Bahá’u’lláh’s replies to a series of questions posed by one of His secretaries.

The first authorized English translation was published inannotated and accompanied by the supplementary Writings and the questions. Contents: Although the Kitab-i-Aqdas is often referred to as Bahá'u'lláh's book of laws, this is misleading, especially to a reader unfamiliar with Islamic law and the Qur'an.

In Shoghi Effendi, the Guardian of the Baha’i Faith, included as one of the goals of his Ten Year Plan the preparation of a Synopsis and Codification of the Laws and Ordinances of the Kitab-i-Aqdas as an essential prelude to its translation.

He himself worked on the codification, but had not finished it. This "Most Holy Book" sets forth laws of God for the Baha'i Dispensation, and ordains necessary institutions through which the integrity and the unity of Baha'u'llah's Faith can be safeguarded.

Contains an introduction by the Universal House of Justice and a description by Shoghi Effendi of the contents of the Kitab-i-Aqdas. The KITÁB-I-AQDAS. IN THE NAME OF HIM WHO IS THE SUPREME RULER OVER ALL THAT HATH BEEN AND ALL THAT IS TO BE.

The Kitáb-i-Íqán (Persian: كتاب ايقان ‎, Arabic: كتاب الإيقان ‎ "Book of Certitude") is one of many books held sacred by followers of the Bahá'í Faith; it is their primary theological Bahá'í scholar states that it can be regarded as the "most influential Quran commentary in Persian outside the Muslim world," because of its international audience.

"Of the more than one hundred volumes comprising the sacred Writings of Baha'u'llah, the Kitab-i-Aqdas is of unique importance. "To build anew the world" is the claim and challenge of His Message, and the Kitab-i-Aqdas is the Charter of the future world civilization that Baha'u'llah has come to rise up.".

Unlike the Qur'an, the Book of Aqdas and other Tablets revealed by Bahá'u'lláh are extremely clear about the question of "lavaat", "sodomy" or homosexual act in general and Bahá'u'lláh has clearly forbidden it in His Tablets (I have already quoted an example of this from among Arabic Tablets.).

The inside cover of this book is a lossy JPG of the book's original cover. In a few places in the book, I see what appear to be unicode errors, suggesting the entire thing was copied and pasted from an existing PDF copy of the Aqdas.
