So reading the Kitab-i-Aqdas I came accross the following where the Huqúqu'lláh is proscribed.
From the precise wording here, however, it almost seems to me like it is saying that one pays Huqúqu'lláh only after acquiring 100 mithqáls of gold. 100 mithqáls = 11.7 Troy Ounces = $13,226.78. From my reading of it, I'm thinking this means that anyone with less than (roughly) $13,000 would not need to pay Huqúqu'lláh.
Does anyone know if the Persian wording is any different, or does anyone have any thoughts on this?? Maybe I'm being too literal, but it seems based on the wording that it's saying "Whenever you have earned $13,226.78, pay $2,513.09 of it in Huqúqu'lláh."
