Chapter Summary

In AH 1316, ʿAbduʾl-Bahá summoned the Afnán to the Holy Land. When the friends in Shíráz were informed of the safe transfer of the Báb’s sacred remains from Tihrán to the Holy Land and their interment on Mount Carmel, the celebrated Hájí Shaykhuʾr-Raʾís penned a poem in AH 1318 which marked that blessed date and submitted it to ʿAbduʾl-Baháʾs presence. In the year AH 1320 [1902], the passing of Hájí Abúʾl-Hasan, father of Áqá Mírzá Muhammad-Báqir Khán, occurred. In the same year, another incident occurred that caused general commotion and resulted in insult to Hájí Shaykhuʾr-Raʾís in the name of the Cause and this community.
