36 Or Adultery #19






The Arabic word zina, here translated as adultery, signifies both

fornication and adultery. It applies not only to sexual relations between

a married person and someone who is not his or her spouse, but also to

extramarital sexual intercourse in general. One form of zina is rape.

The only penalty prescribed by Baha'u'llah is for those who commit

fornication (see note 77); penalties for other kinds of sexual offence are

left to the Universal House of Justice to determine.
