78 Nine Mithqals Of Gold To Be Doubled If They Should Repeat The Offence #49






A mithqal is a unit of weight. The weight of the traditional mithqal
used in the Middle East is equivalent to 24 nakhuds. However, the
mithqal used by the Baha'is consists of 19 nakhuds, in accordance
with the specification of the Bayan (Q and A 23). The weight of nine of
these mithqals equals 32.775 grammes or 1.05374 troy ounces.

In relation to the application of the fine, Baha'u'llah clearly specifies
that each succeeding fine is double the preceding one (Q and A 23); thus
the fine imposed increases in geometrical progression. The imposition of
this fine is intended for a future condition of society, at which time the
law will be supplemented and applied by the Universal House of Justice.
