HUQUQU'LLAH IS THE RIGHT OF THE GUARDIAN ONLY
THEREFORE RECEIPT OF HUQUQ BY THE BOGUS UHJ IS ILLEGITIMATE

According to the Master’s Will which complements the Aqdas, the Huquq goes only to the Guardian.
The bogus sans-Guardian organization (that is, the Bahai organization of currently occupying Haifa and Wilmette) collects Huquq, which according to the Will and Testament of Abdu’l Baha goes only to the Guardian of the Cause of God, “that it may be expended for the diffusion of the Fragrances of God and the exaltation of His Word, for benevolent pursuits and for the common weal.” But the money that they take undeservedly and without having any authority is being used in opposition to “what God hath decreed” and is spent to make opposition and animosity against the Guardian of the Cause of God. The recent court case by the Wilmette NSA against the TRUE FAITH OF BAHA'U'LLAH is witness to it.
The Master in his Will and Testament says:
“O friends of ‘Abdu’l-Baha! The Lord, as a sign of His infinite bounties, hath graciously favored His servants by providing for a fixed money offering (Huquq), to be dutifully presented unto Him, though He, the True One and His servants have been at all times independent of all created things, and God verily is the All-Possessing, exalted above the need of any gift from His creatures. This fixed money offering, however, causeth the people to become firm and steadfast and draweth Divine increase upon them. It is to be offered through the Guardian of the Cause of God, that it may be expended for the diffusion of the Fragrances of God and the exaltation of His Word, for benevolent pursuits and for the common weal”.
And the first Guardian emphasized:
“There is a difference between taxes and spiritual offerings. The House of Justice has certain revenues such as inheritance shares, fees and fines. These are the taxes, which, according to the Aqdas, go directly not to the Guardian but to the House of Justice. According to the Master’s Will which complements the Aqdas, the Huquq goes only to the Guardian.”
