42 The House Of Justice #21

In referring to the House of Justice in the Kitab-i-Aqdas, Baha'u'llah

does not always explicitly distinguish between the Universal House of

Justice and the Local House of Justice, both of which institutions are

ordained in that Book. He usually refers simply to the House of Justice,

leaving open for later clarification the level or levels of the whole

institution to which each law would apply.

In a Tablet enumerating the revenues of the local treasury, 'Abdu'l-Baha

includes those inheritances for which there are no heirs, thus indicating

that the House of Justice referred to in these passages of the Aqdas

relating to inheritance is the local one.
