the Baha’is claim equality of rights between men and women, while in inheritance from the father’s house, daughters have no share. They say our faith considers all social rights of men and women equal and both men and women are absolutely equal.


Bahā’u’llāh, The Kitābi Aqdas, p.29, paragraph 25

We have assigned the residence and personal clothing of the deceased to the male, not female, offspring, nor to the other heirs.


Abd al-Ḥamīd Ishrāq Khāwarī, Ganjīniy-i Hudūd va Aḥkām (Persian copy, chap. 10, p. 128)

The living residence belongs to the oldest living son, whether or not the deceased has any other wealth. The oldest living son also takes his share from the other belongings.
