Quote -The Council of the Islamic Fiqh Academy, holding its Fourth Session, in Jeddah (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) from 18 to 23 Jumada Thani 1408 H (February, 6 to 11, 1988),

Considering the resolution adopted by the 5th Islamic Summit Conference, held in Kuwait, from 26 to 29 Jumada Al-Awwal 1407 H (26-29 January 1987), requesting the Islamic Fiqh Academy to rule on the destructive sects which are incompatible with the teachings of the Holy Qur’an and the pure Sunnah;

Considering the dangers posed to the Islamic Ummah by the Baha’i sect, and the support extended to it by forces hostile to Islam;

Having considered in depth the beliefs of this sect and ascertained that Al-Baha’, the founder of this sect, has claimed to be Messenger and alleged that his writings were divine revelations, that he has called upon all peoples to abide by his message and has denied that the Prophet of Allah (PBUH) was the last of the Messengers; that he claimed that the books revealed to him have abrogated the Holy Qur’an, and that he believes in reincarnation;

Considering that Al-Baha’ has deliberately modified or discarded a great number of Fiqh precepts, such as :

·       Changing the number prescribed prayers and their timing,

·       Raising their number to nine(9), to be performed three times daily  three prayers each time  (early morning, in the afternoon and that sunset).
·       Changing the “Tayammum” ritual (Ablution with sand or stone in absence of water), limiting it to the following declaration : “Bismillah Al-At’har, Al-At’har” (In the name of Allah, the Pure, the Pure),
·       Reducing the fasting period to nineteen(19) days only ending on the Nayruz Day (March 21) each year,
·       Diverting the direction of prayers (Qibla) to Al-Baha home in Acre, in occupied Palestine,
·       Banning jihad,
·       Dropping legal punishment,
·       Introducing equality between man and woman in inheritance and
·       Permitting usury;

Having considered the research papers on “The fields of Islamic Unity”, which warns against destructive movements that split the ranks of the Ummah, threatens its unity and fragment it into sects and parties that lead to ridda(Apostasy) and alienate Islam:


TO REGARD Al-Baha’s claims of Prophet hood, divine revelation, his abrogation of the Holy Qur’an by his books and his changing of established rules of Shari’a, as flagrant violation of Islam and its tenets, and negation thereof; consequently, the ruling on disbelievers applies to him, according to the consensus of Muslims.


That Islamic instructions throughout the world withstand with all available potentials this heretical trend aimed at impairing Islam as creed, Shari’a and pattern of life.
