Muḥammad S̲h̲áh

S̲h̲áh of Persia (reigned 1834-1848). After putting to death the Grand Visier, the Qá'im Maqám, who raised him to the throne (for which act the S̲h̲áh was chastised by Bahá'u'lláh in the Kalimát-i-Firdawsíyyih), the S̲h̲áh raised his tutor Ḥájí Mírzá Áqásí to that office. During his reign he left much of the government in Áqásí's hands, to the exterme detriment of the country.
Muḥammad S̲h̲áh sent Siyyid Yaḥyáy-i-Dárábí (later known as Vaḥíd) to investigate the claims of the Báb, whereupon the latter became a fervent Bábí. The S̲h̲áh summoned the Báb to the capital but allowed the Grand Visier to order instead that the Báb be imprisoned in Máh-kú, thus preventing the meeting. Muḥammad S̲h̲áh died in 1848.
[BD 164]
