Should anyone intentionally destroy a house by fire, him also shall ye burn-Kitab AqdasPosted: March 18, 2012
I was invited to a Baha’i party last weekend. The food was great and we were having fun till the host of the party started reading random sentences from a book “Sexuality in Islam” (قوه باه). This book, Sexuality in Islam, is an honest gathering from all the Islamic documents that contains the meaning of sexuality, sexual relation, and even the sexual desires of Mohammad. This book was published in Iran after the revolution and its content has been approved by many Iranian officials and religion authorities.
We were laughing loud and having fun until I mentioned “Islam like any other religion is full of crap, and if you look deep in the Baha’i book you will find nothing but historical jokes like that”. This comment has faced a serious feedback. To elaborate my point, I mentioned “Ketabe Aghdas (کتاب اقدس) said if someone burned your house you should burn him to death”.
62 : Should anyone intentionally destroy a house by fire, him also shall ye burn; should anyone deliberately take another’s life, him also shall ye put to death.(Kitab Aghdas)
That sentence ended the joy of the party. All I remember was the Baha’i army who were fighting me to prove no such a thing existed in their book. I asked for the Ketabe Aghdas several times; however my requests were rejected with louder argument. Finally someone took responsibility to go online and check for the accuracy of this fact. And believe it or not, I was right.
When the English version of the book revealed that, you can burn a person alive to death if he burns your house, they challenged me to check into the Arabic version. And sadly this strategy did not take them too far. They relentlessly argued at each other for the next two hours on how to translate the Arabic version and how to interoperate it properly to not to make it look better. Meanwhile other friends and I were laughing at them while drinking tea.
They are the group who didn’t go to school for their religion, they consider themselves patriotic, but they do not know the content of a 60-page book of Ketabe Aghadas.
But I learned one thing that night. If you understand the true meaning of their book and say it loud, you might be in trouble.

õ (62) من احرق بيتاً متعمّداً فاحرقوه
ومن قتل نفساً عامداً فاقتلوه خذوا
سنن الله بايادي القدرة والاقتدار ثمّ
اتركوا سنن الجاهلينõ وان تحكموا لهما
حبساً ابديّاً لا بأس عليكم في
الكتاب انّه لهو الحاكم على ما يريدõ
