182 Call Ye To Mind Karim #170






Haji Mirza Muhammad Karim Khan-i-Kirmani (1810- circa 1873) was the

self-appointed leader of the Shaykhi community after the death of

Siyyid Kazim, who was the appointed successor to Shaykh Ahmad-i-Ahsa'i

(see notes 171 and 172). He dedicated himself to the promotion of the

teachings of Shaykh Ahmad. The opinions he expressed became the

subject of controversy among his supporters and opponents alike.



Regarded as one of the leading savants and prolific authors of his age, he

composed numerous books and epistles in the various fields of learning

that were cultivated in those times. He actively opposed both the Bab and

Baha'u'llah, and used his treatises to attack the Bab and His Teachings.

In the Kitab-i-Iqan, Baha'u'llah condemns the tone and content of his

writings and singles out for criticism one of his works which contains

negative allusions to the Bab. Shoghi Effendi describes him as

inordinately ambitious and hypocritical and describes how he at the

special request of the Shah had in a treatise viciously attacked the new

Faith and its doctrines.
