BAHA'I TEACHINGS


A basic principle of the Baha'i Faith

The abolition of the extremes of wealth and poverty

"O Ye Rich Ones on Earth!
The poor in your midst are My trust; guard ye My trust, and be not intent only on your own ease."
The Hidden Words of Baha'u'llah, p. 41

"We see amongst us men who are overburdened with riches on the one hand, and on the other those unfortunate ones who starve with nothing; those who possess several stately palaces, and those who have not where to lay their head. Some we find with numerous courses of costly and dainty food; whilst others can scarce find sufficient crusts to keep them alive. Whilst some are clothed in velvets, furs and fine linen, others have insufficient, poor and thin garments with which to protect them from the cold.

"This condition of affairs is wrong and must be remedied. Now the remedy must be carefully undertaken."
`Abdu'l-Baha, Paris Talks, p. 151
