Every religion has had a successive revelation of laws applicable to mankind's development at that period of existence. The Book Of Laws (The Kitab-i-Aqdas) is the book of laws from The Prophet Founder of the Baha'i Faith, Bahá'u'lláh, for this era in mankind's development. These laws will become applicable, according to Bahá'u'lláh Himself, as the Baha'i Universal House of Justice makes them so.

This is an insight into what the Baha'i Faith sees as the laws for this era in mankind's development and gives an insight into this newest Revelation from God for all of mankind.
