Proper Pronunciation

Sometimes called the Law of Huqq or the 'Right of God' is a socio-economic and spiritual law of the Kitb-i-Aqdas, a charter document of the Bah' Faith, written by Bah'u'llh. In its most basic form, it states that Bah's should make a 19% voluntary payment on any wealth in excess of what is necessary to live comfortably, after the remittance of any outstanding debt, to the head of the Bah' Faith. The money is then disbursed to social and economic development projects, or similar philanthropic purposes.
