71 On The Third Offence

place ye a mark upon his brow so that, thus

identified, he may not be accepted in the cities of God and His countries


The mark to be placed on the thief's forehead serves the purpose of

warning people of his proclivities. All details concerning the nature of

the mark, how the mark is to be applied, how long it must be worn, on what

conditions it may be removed, as well as the seriousness of various

degrees of theft have been left by Baha'u'llah for the Universal House of

Justice to determine when the law is applied.
