|IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE MOST BENEFICENT, THE MOST MERCIFUL|
The definition of Universal Compulsory Education means all the people of the world must forcefully be identically educated using the exact same methods and curriculum.
Knowledge is as wings to manís life, and a ladder for his ascent. Its acquisition is incumbent upon everyone.
Abdul Baha follows his fatherís footsteps and declares that education is compulsory for all:
In this new era, [it has been mentioned] in Godís book that educating and nurturing is a compulsory matter, not optional. This means that it is absolutely mandatory for fathers and mothers to endeavor to educate and nurture girls and boys to the utmost extent.
If a family lacks the means to educate their offspring, the expenses must be provided from public funds:
Abdul Baha further stresses that these orders must not be forsaken:
Regarding [these orders] no weakness must be shown and they must not be neglected. If the child is killed it is definitely better than it being left ignorant. For the innocent child will be infested with all kinds of imperfections and will be questioned by the Lord and interrogated and will be dispraised and rejected by the people.
If the parents neglect this most greatest matter, which has been revealed by the pen of the Ancient Lord (Malik Qidam) in the Book of Aqdas, they will be deprived of the right of fatherhood and will be regarded guilty by God.
