55 And From This He Hath Exempted Women As A Mercy On His Part #32

In the Bayan, the Bab enjoined the ordinance of pilgrimage once in a

lifetime upon those of His followers who were financially able to

undertake the journey. He stated that the obligation was not binding on

women in order to spare them the rigours of travel.

Baha'u'llah likewise exempts women from His pilgrimage requirements. The

Universal House of Justice has clarified that this exemption is not a

prohibition, and that women are free to perform the pilgrimage.
