Chapter Summary

The time was nigh for the arrival of His Holiness in Shíráz. When the Báb arrived at Búshihr, Husayn Khán sent a mounted escort of several men to Búshihr to arrest His Holiness and to return Him to Shíráz. With the utmost respect and dignity, the men accompanied His Holiness to Shíráz and told their friends and acquaintances of what they had observed and of the grandeur and majesty of the Báb. One of those who attained the presence in Shíráz was the honored Áqá Siyyid Yahyá Dárábí. After His Holiness returned from the mosque and was placed under house-arrest at the home of ʿAbduʾl-Hamíd Khán, the entire body of the ʿulamá assembled and fixed their seal on a fatwá decreeing the death of His Holiness.
