169 Gambling #155






The activities that are included in this prohibition have not been

outlined in the Writings of Baha'u'llah. As both 'Abdu'l-Baha and Shoghi

Effendi have indicated, it is left to the Universal House of Justice to

specify the details of this prohibition. In response to questions about

whether lotteries, betting on such things as horse races and football

games, bingo, and the like, are included under the prohibition of

gambling, the Universal House of Justice has indicated that this is a

matter that will be considered in detail in the future. In the meantime,

the Assemblies and individuals are counselled not to make an issue of

these matters and to leave it to the conscience of the individual

believers.



The House of Justice has ruled that it is not appropriate for funds for

the Faith to be raised through lotteries, raffles, and games of chance.
