Chapter Summary

When the Báb had reached the age of fifteen, he joined the commercial office of His uncle in Shíráz. He remained for a short while in Shíráz and then moved to the port city of Búshihr. The Báb arrived at the ʿAtabát. After six months of His blessed stay in the ʿAtabát had passed, His mother, longing to see her only Off spring, earnestly petitioned her brother, Hájí Mírzá Siyyid ʿAlí, to proceed for the ʿAtabát and to bring His Holiness to Shíráz—a matter that she greatly insisted upon. Having spoken with the illustrious consort, Khadíjih-Sultán Bagum, daughter of the late Áqá Mírzá ʿAlí and a paternal cousin of the Báb’s mother, the arrangements for the wedding ceremony were made. The wedding took place on Friday, the eighteenth of Rajab AH 1258 in the presence of an assemblage of the merchants, the noblemen, and the ʿulamá of Fárs.
