He is God

Honorable Islamic Council of Hasanabad

In response to the letter from the Council, dated 27/7/1358 [16 October 1979], and following the order of Mr. Hasan Tabatabai, the prayer Imam at the time, and in view of the final order of the Jahad-e Sazandegi [Jihad of Construction], dated 18/7/1385 [10 October 1979], the following is to inform you:

As you are aware, from the two noted bath-houses, the ruined bath-house lacks hygienic facilities, and is beyond repair. The new bath-house, located in the northern part of the county, can be repaired and reconstructed. The old bath-house is currently occupied by the former caretaker, who is using it as his home and warehouse.  

The Baha’i community of Hasan Abad, in the spirit of co-operation, collectively agrees to allow the Muslim residents of Hasan Abad to use the new bath-house, to be rebuilt with the assistance of the Jahad-e Sazandegi, and instead make use of the old public bath-house in the future. 

This agreement has been prepared in two copies, one of which remains with the secretary of this community. Please inform us of the receipt of this copy and the opinion of that honorable Council.

 

With utmost respect and gratitude,

Seyyed Nasrollah Ashrafi

Secretary of the Local Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of Hasanabad
