    Huquq’u’llah, the Right of God

    “Say: O people, the first duty is to recognize the one true God — magnified be His glory — the second is to show forth constancy in His Cause and, after these, one’s duty is to purify one’s riches and earthly possessions according to that which is prescribed by God.”–Baha’u’llah

    More information can be gleaned from the compilations on the Huquq or by contacting the representatives of Huquq, whose duty is education regarding this Great Law.  For Nashville, these representatives are the following individuals:
