Baha’i Faith and Polygamy

Mirza Hosein Ali Nari (Baha’u’llah)’s family

Baha’u’llah contrary to his own laws that permits two wives, and contrary to the laws of his predecessor the Bab who only permitted a single wife, practiced polygamy and was married to three wives (officially). He also had another wife that Baha’is usually don’t speak about who was a young maid in his house.

Form the 3 official wives, two WERE LABELLED as covenant breakers. You see they didn’t break the covenant, they were labelled as covenant breakers due to their opposition to Abdu’l-Baha hogging power and usurping the right of his half-brother Muhammad Ali. The only wife that was not kicked out of the faith was guess who: Yes Abdu’l-Baha’s mother.

Unfortunately, people labelled as covenant breakers are treated very inhumanely in Baha’ism and are severely persecuted. No one is allowed to speak or socialize with them even their own children and spouses and if they do so they will be given the same treatment.

Further more in the words of Baha’i leaders they are referred to using very hateful words like contamination, haters of the light, and sufferers from spiritual leprosy:

“Announce to Hands and all National Assemblies that following the loss of the appeal to the Supreme Court, the Government expropriation order has been implemented, resulting in the complete evacuation of the remnant of Covenant-breakers and the transfer of all their belongings from the precincts of the Most Holy Shrine, and the purification, after six long decades, of the Ḥaram-i-Aqdas from every trace of their contamination. Measures under way to effect transfer of title deeds of the evacuated property to the triumphant Bahá’í community.”(Shoghi Effendi, Messages to the Bahá’í World: 1950–1957, p. 124)Messages to the Bahá’í World: 1950–1957

“It is better not to read books by Covenant-breakers because they are haters of the Light, sufferers from a spiritual leprosy, so to speak.” (Helen Bassett Hornby, Lights of Guidance: A Baha’i Reference File (New Delhi: Baha’i Publishing Trust, 1983), chap. XII, no. 628)

Unfortunately this is the true face of the Baha’i cult that is usually kept hidden from outsiders.
