Right of God

As to the Huququ'lláh: This is the source of blessings, and the mainspring of God's loving-kindness and tender love vouchsafed unto men.

Bahá'u'lláh, from a previously untranslated Tablet.

Beseech ye God that He may enable everyone to discharge the obligation of Huquq, inasmuch as the progress and promotion of the Cause of God depend on material means. If His faithful servants could realize how meritorious are benevolent deeds in these days, they would all arise to do that which is meet and seemly.

Bahá’u’lláh, Huqúqu’lláh, #1

If one spontaneously offereth Huquq with the utmost joy and radiance it will be acceptable, and not otherwise. The benefit of such deeds reverteth unto the individuals themselves.

Baha’u’llah, The Compilation of Compilation, vol. I, Huqúqu'lláh

If one spontaneously offereth Huquq with the utmost joy and radiance it will be acceptable, and not otherwise. The benefit of such deeds reverteth unto the individuals themselves. This measure hath been ordained in view of the necessity for material means, for "averse is God from putting aught into effect except through its means."

Bahá’u’lláh, Huqúqu’lláh, #27

It is clear and evident that the payment of the Right of God is conducive to prosperity, to blessing, and to honour and Divine protection. Well is it with them that comprehend and recognize this truth and woe betide them that believe not.

Bahá’u’lláh, Lights of Guidance, p. 304

Nothing that existeth in the world of being hath ever been or ever will be worthy of mention. However, if a person be graciously favoured to offer a penny-worth -- nay even less -- in the path of God, this would in His sight be preferable and superior to all the treasures of the earth. It is for this reason that the one true God -- exalted be His glory -- hath in all His heavenly Scriptures praised those who observe His precepts and bestow their wealth for His sake.
