1831 The passing of Shaykh Aḥmad-i-Ahsá’í (1753–1831), who was the founder of the Shaykhí School and the first of the “twin luminaries that heralded the advent of the Faith of the Báb”. [KA239n171] Shaykhi School, Shaykh Aḥmad-i-Ahsa’i
1843 Passing of Siyyid Kázim-i-Rashtí, the disciple and self-proclaimed successor of Shaykh Ahmad, in Karbalá. Because Siyyid Kázim designated no successor, within a short period of time the Shaykhí school was split into several factions. The two largest were grouped around Siyyid `Alí Muhammad and Hájí Mullá Muhammad Karím Khán Kirmání. The first faction moved away from the outward practice of Islám towards a development of inner realities and ultimately a new revelation. The second emphasized the continuing role of the Prophets and the Imáms and sought acceptance from the Shí'í majority which had formerly excommunicated Shaykh Ahmad and Siyyid Kázim.

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.
