The Universal House of Justice is the international governing council of the Bahá’í Faith. Bahá’ís believe that its decision-making is guided by God. The Universal House of Justice has the authority to legislate on all matters which Bahá’u’lláh himself did not explicitly address. It also has the authority to repeal or change its own legislation as conditions change, providing necessary flexibility for the future. The Universal House of Justice guides and oversees the development of the Bahá’í community.
