He had followers write the name of every declared believer to be enclosed in sealed letters addressed to Hájí Mírzá Siyyid 'Alí, His uncle, who would deliver them to Him.
He said that He was going to classify the lists into 18 sets of 19 names with each set being one váhid and that those sets along with the first one of Himself and the Letters of the Living would be equal in number to Kull-i-Shay' (whose value is 361). This was to be for their blessing and recognition by Bahá'u'lláh.
Mullá Husayn was told to write a report on his activities, the names of those who joined, and those who rejected the Cause in Isfáhán, Tihrán & Khurásán. He said that He could not leave until Mullá Husayn obtained those documents.
Mullá Husayn had been inspired by Bahá'u'lláh and set out for Khurásán. The most learned of 'ulamá there, Mírzá Ahmad-i-Azghandí, was first to accept the Faith. He had always been the chief speaker in any gathering because of his character, devoutness, erudition, ability, and wisdom.
Mullá Ahmad-i-Mu'allim, the instructor of Siyyid Kázim's children then declared.
Mullá Shaykh 'Alí (surnamed 'Azím by the Báb) was also learned and declared.
Mírzá Muhammad Báqir-i-Qá'iní, was next to embrace and was consumed with forceful passion, fearlessness, unsparing energy, unswerving loyalty, integrity made him terror of enemies and inspiration to friends. He placed his home at Mullá Husayn's disposal, and worked tirelessly for the Cause until martyred at Tabársí. He was appointed leader by Quddús after Mullá Husayn's death and rose to challenge. His home is known as Bábíyyih.
Mullá Husayn referred to stay in Isfáhán and Káshán, His experience with Bahá'u'lláh, His departure for Mázindarán, the events of Núr, his own success in Khurásán with the names of those proclaiming their sincere steadfastness in letter delivered by partners of Báb's maternal uncle on holy Day of Islám, the 27th day of Ramadán.
The Báb shared some passages with sole companion that night, Quddús with extreme joy and praised the event which occurred between the months of Jamádí and Rajab. Mírzá Ahmad was unaware of the significance of His joy as described by the Báb's uncle.
When Mírzá Ahmad finally met Mullá Husayn, Mullá Husayn simply recalled that between those months, he had been in Tihrán, indicating a deep significance to Tihrán.
The Báb was overjoyed as He felt that if He were to be taken from the world by his foes, the Cause would flourish under Bahá'u'lláh. All of His fears of peril disappeared and He welcomed the fire of adversity as a phoenix.
