Fatwas [religious decrees] of Ayatollah Bahjat (May God Have Mercy on Him) Regarding the Baha’is
Ayatollah Bahjat considered the Baha’is to be infidels and najis and considered it absolutely impermissible to deal with them. According to his fatwa, marriage to the followers of this perverse sect is annulled; if a person has married one out of ignorance, his/her marriage is annulled, and if a Baha’i woman marries a Muslim man, she will not be entitled to dowry...
Adyannet - Ayatollah Mohammad-Taqi Bahjat is one of the famous mystics and a great religious jurisprudential authority, born in 1295  in the City of Fuman. He died in 1388  in the City of Qom. In this article, we will address the istifta’at that were asked of him with regard to the Baha’is, with the title and the answer:
- Taharat and najasat of the Baha’is: “They are infidels and najis.” 
- Guidance of the Baha’is: “If the enlighteners are not likely to be influenced, it is permissible.” 
- [Business] dealings with the Baha’is: “Dealing with the Baha’is is absolutely not permissible.” Elsewhere, he said, “Dealing with the Baha’is is like a deal with other polytheists and Ahl-i-Dhimmi .” 
- Teaching Baha’i students: “If it strengthens his [Baha’i] belief in any way, it is not permissible.” 
- Marriage to a Baha’i: “Marriage is annulled.” 
- The dowry of a Baha’i woman whom a Muslim man has unknowingly married: “It is not obligatory for him to give her anything.” 
- Is it forbidden to seize Baha’i property? “No” 
- Are Baha’is in an Islamic country safe? “No.” 
- Putting the Quran at the disposal of the Baha’is: “It is wrong.” 
- Praying in a house confiscated from a Baha’i person: “If it is known that the person is a Baha’i, there is no problem, as long as he is not one of them whose property would be inherited by his heir during apostasy.” 
- The property of a Baha’i after his death if he does not have a Muslim heir: “Baha’i heirs do not have the right of inheritance, but care must be taken not to incite sedition or corruption.” 
- Selling a house to a Baha’i: “A Baha’i cannot be an owner” 
In the hope of the day when all the perverse and misguided sects will be eliminated in Islamic and other societies.
