190 O Source Of Perversion! #184






This is a reference to Mirza Yahya, known as Subh-i-Azal (Morning of

Eternity), a younger half-brother of Baha'u'llah, who arose against Him

and opposed His Cause. Mirza Yahya was nominated by the Bab to serve as a

figure-head for the Babi community pending the imminent manifestation of

the Promised One. At the instigation of Siyyid Muhammad-i-Isfahani (see

note 192), Mirza Yahya betrayed the trust of the Bab, claimed to be His

successor, and intrigued against Baha'u'llah, even attempting to have Him

murdered. When Baha'u'llah formally declared His Mission to him in

Adrianople, Mirza Yahya responded by going to the length of putting

forward his own claim to be the recipient of an independent Revelation.

His pretensions were eventually rejected by all but a few, who became

known as Azalis (see note 177). He is described by Shoghi Effendi as the

Arch-Breaker of the Covenant of the Bab (see God Passes By, chapter X).
