Friends - Treatment of

And if thine eyes be turned towards justice, choose thou for thy neighbor that which thou choosest for thyself.
(Bahá’u’lláh, Epistle to the Son of the Wolf, p. 29)


It is incumbent upon them to take counsel together and to have regard for the interests of the servants of God, for His sake, even as they regard their own interests, and to choose that which is meet and seemly. Thus hath the Lord your God, the Gracious, the Pardoner, commanded you. Beware lest ye put away that which is clearly revealed in His Tablet. Fear God, O ye that perceive.
(Bahá’u’lláh, Synopsis and Codification of the Kitáb-i-Aqdas, p. 13)


Let us teach the ignorant, and take care of the young child until he grows to maturity. When we find a person fallen into the depths of misery or sin we must be kind to him, take him by the hand, help him to regain his footing, his strength; we must guide him with love and tenderness, treat him as a friend not as an enemy.
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Paris Talks, p. 147)
