Well done!

Query: What mechanism will insure just distribution of Huq u llah funds, i.e. : is the summmary judgment of nine people concencerning need morally efficacious in a universal sense?That was universal with a small u, meaning, what will be the social status of non believers in a Bahai World Commonwealth? Are the rest of us to trust the benovolence of a council of mere men cut of the same cloth as the rest of us?

Interesting questions.

42 years of investigation of the written teachings of the Glory of God, and their practical application in real-world conditions, has led me to see them as just, fair, practical and inclusive.

Non-believers, minorities and dissent are all explicitly protected in His administrative order.
"He hath but to deliver this clear message, whoso desireth let him turn aside, and whoso desireth, let him choose the path to his Lord." (for example)

And the 'summary judgment of nine people' is reviewed at the national House of Justice, and reviewed at the level of the Universal House of Justice, Haifa, Israel. Any decision is subject to appeal.

"Think not that He hath revealed a mere set of laws, nay rather have we unsealed with the fingers of might and power the Wine of Astonishment'

It has been my experience that when those unpaid, justice-loving, compassionate nine assemble, with humility before God at the nobility, justice and dignity they are called to uphold, and they read the relevant Teachings, and consult with intelligence, rational reason and the Exemplar, 'Abdu'l-Baha ever before them, the have a very good chance of finding and courageously carrying out one of the just and decent decisions required by the given human situation brought before them.

Thanks, YankChair!

I didn't mean to ignore Huquq'u'llah.

It, and the monetary donations of Baha'is, are recorded so that the Incorporated House of Justice, (nowadays still called Local Spiritual Assembly, but incorporated legally under the laws of the nation/state wherein it abides) will be reviewed after reporting to the community of Baha'is, at every 19-Day Feast.

There are other checks and balances, too. Thanks for asking, the Baha'i Administration is healthy, and functioning in every nation of the world, with the possible exception of Iran...
