Chapter Summary

Muhammad-Taqí Mírzá, the Ruknuʾd-Dawlih, was appointed governor-general of Fárs and came from Tihrán to Shíráz. By then, the celebrated Murtidá had been in prison for five years. When in AH 1310 the news of the Blessed Beauty’s ascension had reached Fárs, Murtidá—that singular thrall of his Divine Beloved—lost all restraint and begun to lament and sob most intensely. After attaining the presence of ʿAbduʾl-Bahá in the Holy Land and gaining indescribable spiritual insights and manifold celestial understandings, Hájí Abúʾl-Hasan Mírzá, known as Hájí Shaykhuʾr-Raʾís, arrived in Shíráz by way of the port of Búshihr. After sixteen years away, in accordance with ʿAbduʾl-Bahá’s instructions, Núriʾd-Dín left Egypt for Shíráz and to meet en route with the late Áqá Mírzá Muhammad-Hasan, the Hujjatuʾl-Islám in the ʿAtabát.
