Chapter Summary

After the martyrdom of His Holiness the Exalted One [the Báb]—may the spirit of all else be a sacrifice unto Him—and subsequent to the events and troubles of Tihrán, which surely have been recorded in the history of that city, on the fifth day of Jamáduʾl-Avval, the Blessed Perfection [Baháʾuʾlláh]—exalted be His mention and praise—arrived at the Abode of Peace. In accordance with His sanctified instructions, the late Mullá Muhammad Zarandí, surnamed by the Blessed Tongue as Nabíl Aʿzam, was charged with proclaiming the new Cause throughout Iran. After the departure of the honored Nabíl, Áqá Mírzá Áqá Afnán endeavored to teach and proclaim the blessed Cause, and was successful in confirming a number of seekers.
