Religious Decrees of Grand Ayatollah Bahjat Regarding Inheritance

No inheritance for Baha’i heirs

[Q.] 1514. A Baha’i [who was born a Baha’i], has died and has no Muslim heir; will his Baha’i heirs inherit?

A. According to Sharia rulings [which is not directly imposed on the obligated person], Baha’i heirs do not have the right of inheritance, but as one’s religious obligation, one must be careful not to incite sedition or corruption.
