(In the Name of God the Compassionate, the Merciful)

Manager of Pirouz Mehr Dry Cleaning Company

Salutations and praise to the imam of the nation, Imam Khomeini, the Great, and the martyrs on the path of God. Given your affiliation with the perverse and misguided Baha’i sect, and since it has not been proven to the people that you have denounced this misled and misleading clan, and have returned to Islam; and on the other hand, since your work entails cleaning, considered by the Prophet of Islam as a sign of faith, and that cleanliness of clothes is a condition of the acceptance of the obligatory prayer; you must either officially announce to the people your aversion to the perverse Baha’i sect in a public meeting and declare your faith in Islam or declare in writing that you were a Baha’i a few years ago and are now a Muslim. [This must be printed] on flyers and posted in public places and on the streets, so as to convince people that you are truthful in your claim. Otherwise, the proper decision will be taken. I only intend reform as much as I am able. And my success is not but through Allah. Upon Him I have relied, and to Him I return.” (11:88)
