72. Whoso wisheth to make use of vessels of silver and gold is at liberty to do so. # 46
In the Bayán the Báb allowed the use of gold and silver
utensils, thus abrogating the Islamic condemnation of their
use which stems not from an explicit injunction of the
Qur’án but from Muslim traditions. Bahá’u’lláh here
confirms the Báb’s ruling.
