Associating with Baha’is is Not Permissible, and Exposing the Oppression of Regime Officials is Forbidden

Ali Khamenei bans association with Baha’is, buying Israeli goods, exposing the atrocities of the authorities of the Islamic Republic and listening to the “singing voice” of one’s spouse as forbidden.

These bans can be seen in a series of fatwas [religious laws] by Ali Khamenei that were published by the news agencies on Tuesday, 8 Mordad [30 July].

These fatwas [religious laws] cover topics such as the use of satellite, e-commerce, dealing with Israeli companies, Baha’is, music, and more.

A selection of these fatwas is:

. . .

- Any association with this “misguided perverse sect” [meaning Baha’is] should be avoided.

- It is forbidden to buy or sell any imported goods from the “Occupying State of Israel”
