Question: Please indicate, if a murdered person is a follower of the perverse Baha’i sect: 1-Does he have the right to receive any diyah [blood money] or not? If yes, how much is his/her diyah?
In His Name, Whose Names are great
1-An infidel that is not kafir-i-zammi [infidel living in an Islamic country and paying tribute], and Baha’is are a good example of this group, their killing has neither qisas nor diyah.
The date of response to istifa: 9 Safar 1419 [5 June 1998]
