In the Name of God


[Regarding] the honourable Mr. Mashaollah Rahmani, son of Hosein-Ali, holding birth certificate number [redacted] issued in Tehran, resident in the property of Bumehen (illegible), whose religion is Baha’ism, I placed him under the safeguarding and protection of Islam from every aspect, such as honour, life, and finances. None of the Muslims, from the date mentioned below, until the announcement of the orders by the clergy and religious leaders of Shi’ia about him and others like him [Baha’i], has the right to [lay] hands on them, their relatives or their possessions, lives and honour.

May God guide and save.
