Chapter Summary

It proceeded thus until finally the declaration of the Báb took place on the eve of Friday, the fifth day of Jamádíyuʾl-Avval AH 1260, two hours and eleven minutes into the night. After the passing of Siyyid, who was a harbinger of this blessed Manifestation, the Akhúnd [Mullá Husayn] was afflicted with great perturbation and restlessness. After a period of forty days of ascetic observance in the Masjid Kufih and Masjid Sahlih, the Akhúnd [Mullá Husayn] established a pact with his companions that if any one of them should hear the Call of the Truth, he would inform the others at once. The Báb then revealed a detailed commentary on one of the shorter Surihs of the Qurʾán and entrusted it to the honored Akhúnd Mullá Husayn. Mullá Husayn proceeded to Isfahán in accordance with the Báb’s instructions and upon arrival, was reunited with Mullá Sádiq.
