87 Should Ye Condemn The Arsonist And The Murderer To Life Imprisonment






it would be permissible according to the provisions of the Book. 62


Shoghi Effendi, in response to a question about this verse of the Aqdas,
affirmed that while capital punishment is permitted, an alternative, life
imprisonment, has been provided whereby the rigours of such a
condemnation can be seriously mitigated. He states that Baha'u'llah has
given us a choice and has, therefore, left us free to use our own
discretion within certain limitations imposed by His law. In the absence
of specific guidance concerning the application of this aspect of Baha'i
law, it remains for the Universal House of Justice to legislate on the
matter in the future.
