179 A Sifter Of Wheat And Barley # 166

This is an allusion to Mulla Muhammad Ja'far Gandum-Pak-Kun, the first

person in Isfahan to accept the Faith of the Bab. He is mentioned in the

Persian Bayan and praised as one who donned the robe of discipleship. In

The Dawn-Breakers, Nabil describes the unreserved acceptance of the

Message by the sifter of wheat and his zealous advocacy of the new

Revelation. He joined the company of the defenders of the Fort of

Shaykh Tabarsi and perished during that siege.
