___________________
Pronunciation: na-beel-e-ah-zahm

Redirected from: Most Great Nabíl; Mullá Muḥammad-i-Zarandí
___________________
Surname of Mullá Muḥammad-i-Zarandí, who wrote the lengthy history of the Faith, The Dawn Breakers. He became a Bábí and after the martyrdom of the Báb put forward a claim to the leadership of the Bábí community. When he later visited Bag̲h̲dád, he recognized the station of Bahá'u'lláh and put aside his own claims. From Bag̲h̲dád and Adrianople he was sent to Iran by Bahá'u'lláh to alert the Bábís of the advent of 'Him Whom God shall make manifest'. On the passing of Bahá'u'lláh he was so overcome with grief that he ended his own life by throwing himself into the sea and drowning.
[BD 167]
