Chapter Summary

In the Writings of the Báb, His Blessed House has been given unique and everlasting favors. Such blessings are found in: the Qayyumuʾl-Asmaʾ, chapter Rukn, 35–38; the Persian Bayán 4:16–18; the Arabic Bayán 4:16–19; Tablet to Khál Akbar at the time of the Báb’s departure from Shíráz for Isfahán; and the Kitáb Panj Shaʾn. During the early part of this century, the residence next to the House of the Báb was also purchased and made part of the Blessed House. This house was situated between the residences of Hájí Mírzá Siyyid Muhammad, known as the Khál Akbar, and that of Hájí Mírzá Siyyid ʿAlí, surnamed the Khál Aʿzam. ʿAbduʾl-Bahá named this house a Mashriquʾl-Adhkár. It ranks among the most sacred Baháʾí places in Shíráz, claiming a singular spiritual station.
