90 He Who Would Take Into His Service A Maid May Do So With Propriety #63






Baha'u'llah states that a man may employ a maiden for domestic service.
This was not permissible under Shi'ih Muslim practice unless the
employer entered into a marriage contract with her. Baha'u'llah emphasizes
that the service referred to in this verse is solely such as is
performed by any other class of servants, be they young or old, in
exchange for wages (Q and A 30). An employer has no sexual rights over
his maid. She is free to choose a husband at whatever time she pleaseth,
for the purchase of women is forbidden (Q and A 30).
