Laws of the Kitáb-i-Aqdas

The laws of Bahá’u’lláh placed in their historical context.

Bahá’u’lláh’s great Book of Laws, His Most Holy Book, The Kitáb-i-Aqdas, contains the laws that are to provide the foundation of a just society and facilitate the development of virtuous individuals for the next thousand years. The laws revealed by Bahá’u’lláh are uniquely fashioned to address this particular period of humanity’s social and spiritual evolution.

Yet many of the laws brought by Bahá’u’lláh have their roots in the laws of earlier dispensations and their origin can be discerned in the holy books that assisted people to conduct their affairs from the very beginning of human civilisation.

Baharieh Rouhani Ma‘ani and Sovaida Ma‘ani Ewing trace the evolution of the major laws found in the Kitáb-i-Aqdas through the Old and New Testaments, the Qur’án and the writings of the Báb. Their straightforward account places the laws of Bahá’u’lláh in their historical context and provides fresh insights into their significance for building a new world order.
