A unique and revolutionary spiritual principle stated in the Bahá’í Writings for the purpose of redistribution of income and wealth is the law of Huqúqu’lláh. The traditional way of redistribution of income and wealth which is practiced even today is the material means, mainly through all kinds of taxes and subsidies and different kinds of national insurances. The redistribution of income and wealth through the Law of Huqúqu’lláh includes both material and spiritual aspects and the effect is astonishing.
The law allows Bahá’ís to learn and apply moral virtues as the basis of true redistribution of income and wealth. This presentation is about some of the astounding economic significance of the Law of Huqúqu’lláh that is contributing to the well-being of the generality of the population, as well as to potential economic growth and reducing the gap between the rich and the poor.
