In the Name of God the Merciful, the Compassionate

 

Baha’i residents of the Hasanabad-e Baqeraf

 

According to the order of the Jahad-e Sazandegi[1] dated 18 Mehr 1358 [10 October 1979], an Islamic Council of Hasanabad Bagherov was established.

 

At the suggestion of the Muslim inhabitants and the request of Hasan Tabatabai, the prayer-leader at the time, the decision to improve the buildings of the public Baths, which is a principle of the true religion of Islam, was vigorously considered. [This occurred] at the current meeting of the Council and by the order of the Jahad-e Sazandegi,

 

As you are well aware, there are two common bath buildings in this village used by the Muslims and the Baha’is, which are in a ruinous state and are useless. According to the decision of the Council and the order of the Jahad-e Sazandegi, it was agreed to evaluate the cost [of reconstruction] of both buildings and it was decided that the cost be distributed according to the number of the Muslim and Baha’i residents. Therefore, it is requested that, as soon as possible, a written answer [to this proposal] is sent to this council or that attendance and reply in person is made at the Urban Jahad-e Sazandegi [office], and the result sent within 2 days to this Council.
