Chapter Summary

As the demise of Qájár rule drew near, each day witnessed a new disturbance or commotion in the nation as a whole, and the occurrences of many incidents, especially in the province of Fárs. During this time, an insidious character by the name of Dervish ʿAlí became acquainted with some gullible Baháʾís and expressed a deep desire to learn about the Faith. As noted earlier, because of the perpetual turmoil and disturbances, none of the citizens, especially the Baháʾís, had a moment’s peace. Habíbuʾlláh Khán ruled the city for three months. During this period, because of the general and persistent disorder that had enveloped the region, none would accept the provincial governorship. Eventually, Mírzá Ahmad Khán, the ʿAláʾuʾd-Dawlih, accepted this post for yet another term of office. With a large contingent of soldiers and artillery, he arrived in Shíráz on Shaʿbán AH 1323.
