Bahaismiran:

 Shoqi Effendi has forced the Baha’is to express their ideas and beliefs in each situation. While the leaders of the cult have guided their followers towards hiding their beliefs by changing the name of dissimulation to wisdom. Now, the question is that: What’s Excellency Shoqi Effendi’s justification for abolishing the Baha’i leaders’ commandment?!

     The third leader of Baha’is has forced the Baha’is to express their ideas and beliefs in each condition: “The third question is concerning hiding belief when there is no Baha’i in a place and you should express your Baha’i belief. The answer is that hiding belief, even in this case, is indecent and contrary to the rudiments of the Baha’i faith.[1]

     It is interesting to be known that Shoqi Effendi believes that hiding belief is forbidden even it saves a person’s life.[2]

     The leaders of the cult have directed their followers towards hiding belief by changing the name of dissimulation to wisdom; as we read: “In the Baha’i works and tablets dissimulation was replaced by wisdom which means knowledge for considering the addressee’s circumstances[3].” It is narrated by the forged prophet of the Baha’i cult:

"لَیْسَ لِاَحَدٍ اَن یَعترف بهذا الْاَمر اَمامَ وجوهِ المُشرکین وَ المُعتدین"

     “Nobody is allowed to confess to the faith (Baha’ism) in the presence of atheists and non-Baha’is[4].” However, there is a contradiction among the Baha’i leaders. The questions are as follows:

     Q1: What is the difference between dissimulation and wisdom?!

     Q2: Isn’t dissimulation saving people’s lives regulating expediencies of wisdom?!

     Q3: What’s Shoqi Effendi’s justification for boycotting the Baha’i leaders’ commandment concerning wisdom without mentioning any exception?!

     Q4: Can the views and functions of the Baha’i leaders be ignored in hiding beliefs?!

     Q5: Must Shoqi Effendi’s claim be accepted as the real belief for Baha’is?!
