52 Take Counsel Together #30

Baha'u'llah has established consultation as one of the fundamental

principles of His Faith and has exhorted the believers to take counsel

together in all matters. He describes consultation as the lamp of

guidance which leadeth the way and as the bestower of understanding.

Shoghi Effendi states that the principle of consultation ... constitutes

one of the basic laws of the Baha'i Administrative Order.

In Questions and Answers, number 99, Baha'u'llah outlines an approach to

consultation and stresses the importance of achieving unanimity in

decision-making, failing which the majority decision must prevail. The

Universal House of Justice has clarified that this guidance concerning

consultation was revealed before Spiritual Assemblies had been established

and was in answer to a question about the Baha'i teachings on

consultation. The House of Justice affirms that the emergence of Spiritual

Assemblies, to which the friends may always turn for assistance, in no way

prohibits them from following the procedure outlined in Questions and

Answers. This approach may be used by the friends, should they wish, when

they desire to consult on their personal problems.
