1844. 22 May Declaration of the Báb's Mission

Two hours and eleven minutes after sunset Siyyid `Alí-Muhammad makes His declaration to Mullá Husayn-i-Bushrú'í. He reveals the first chapter of the Qayyúmu'l-Asmá' (the Commentary on the Súrih of Joseph). The entire text will later be translated by Táhirih. [B19–21; BBD190–1; BBRSM14–15; BKG28; BW12:85–8; BWMF16; DB52–65; GPB23, 73; MH56–71; SBBH17]

  • This text was the most widely circulated of all the Báb's writings and came to be regarded as the Bábí Qur'an for almost the entirety of His mission. [BBRSM32]
  • Bahá'u'lláh has described this book as being `the first, the greatest, and mightiest of all books' in the Bábí Dispensation. [GPB23]
  • See SBBH1:14 for a possible explanation for Mullá Husayn's presence in Shíráz at this time.
  • See BBRSM42–3 and DB57 for a list of signs by which the Promised One could be known.
  • This date marks the end of the Adamic Cycle of approximately six thousand years and the beginning of the Bahá'í Cycle or Cycle of Fulfilment. [BBD9, 35, 72; GPB100]
  • The beginning of the Apostolic, Heroic or Primitive Age. [BBD35, 67]
  • See BBD113, DB383 and MH for information on Mullá Husayn-i-Bushrú'í.
  • See MH86–7 for an explanation of the implication of the word `Báb' to the Shí'í Muslims.
  • Three stages of the Báb's Revelation:
  • He chooses the title `Báb' and Mullá Husayn is given the title Bábu'l-Báb (the gate of the Gate).
  • In the second year of the Revelation (from His confinement in the house of His uncle in Shíráz) He takes the title of Siyyid-i-dhikr (dhikr means `remembrance of God') and gives the title `Báb' to Mullá Husayn. At Fort Tabarsí Mullá Husayn is called `Jináb-i Báb' by his companions.
  • At His public declaration the Báb declares Himself to be the promised Qá'im. [MH87–8]

Tips:
  • Tags are simplified spellings, minus all accents and punctuation, used to find documents on a similar topic but with various titles.
  • Searches are matched to any part of a tag: searching for mashr will also return Mashriqu'l-Adhkar, or Egyptian will also return Egypt.
  • 1- and 2-letter words will not be searched.
  • While all documents on this website will hopefully one day be tagged, so far we've only applied a few tags to the main Collection.
        However, most events in the Chronology are now tagged.
