About: Through the course of this paper, I seek to enquire whether the Baha’i religion’s chief prophecy — gender-justice and equality — is reflected in the Laws of Inheritance enumerated within the holy book, Kitab-i-Aqdas. This shall be achieved by citing the commandments and critiquing them comparatively using the other commandments itself, and taking the help of scholarly articles about the same subject. The congruency between the commandments is analysed and contrasted with Islamic provisions, for better comprehension of the gender-unjust inheritance laws’ justifiability. The paper concludes by discussing the applicability of these provisions and comments on the situation of the Baha’i community globally.
