10 The Prayer For The Dead #8

The Prayer for the Dead (see Some Texts Supplementary to the

Kitab-i-Aqdas) is the only Baha'i obligatory prayer which is to be recited

in congregation; it is to be recited by one believer while all present

stand in silence (see note 19). Baha'u'llah has clarified that the Prayer

for the Dead is required only when the deceased is an adult (Q and A 70),

that the recital should precede the interment of the deceased, and that

there is no requirement to face the Qiblih when saying this prayer (Q and

A 85).

Further details concerning the Prayer for the Dead are summarized in the

Synopsis and Codification, section IV.A. 13.-14.
