Chapter Summary

The blessed name of the Báb was Áqá Mírzá ʿAlí-Muhammad, son of Mír[zá] Muhammad-Ridá, the son of Áqá Mír[zá] Nasruʾlláh, the son of Áqá Mír[zá] Fathuʾlláh, the son of Áqá Mír[zá] Ibráhím. His blessed birth took place on the first night of Muharram AH 1235, in the house belonging to his mother’s paternal uncle, Áqá Mírzá ʿAlí. According to Mullá Fathuʾlláh Maktab-Dár, son of Mullá Mand-ʿAlí, when his blessed age had reached five years old, he was taken to the [quranic school of] Shaykh ʿAbid, known as Shaykh Anám, located in Qahviyih Awlíyá, one of the mystic convents occupied by the mystics of Fárs, on the Tayr marketplace, near the house of his maternal grandfather, and his respected maternal uncle.
