Zaynu’l-Muqarrabín is one of the eminent believers of our precious history. He was appointed as an Apostle of Bahá’u’lláh and a life worth reading about. Unfortunately, there is not much information available in English. To remedy this, his life story has been shared on this blog over the past year (eleven parts). To make it easier to read about his life, I have put all parts as one document and made improvements. Hopefully, you will enjoy reading about his life and draw inspiration from his example.

This is the sixth post in a series of posts telling the life story of Zaynu’l-Muqarrabín.
Jináb-i-Zayn had returned home after his life changing events. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá explains, “He rid himself of all impeding veils; his doubts dispelled, he began to extol and glorify the Beauty promised from of old. In his own home, and at Isfahan, he became notorious for declaring far and wide that the advent of the long-desired One had come to pass.”

Zaynu’l-Muqarrabín was in deep thoughts and confused about what he had experienced. His state of confusion was visible to others. Through a friend he was informed that there is a person who has more information about this new faith. Zaynu’l-Muqarrabín was interested and together with a trusted friend, they secretly went on foot to meet this person.

Zaynu’l-Muqarrabín was perplexed because he had questions but did not know where to find the answeres. In those days few dared to publicly say they were bábis as they were constantly persecuted and martyred. So Zaynu’l-Muqarrabín did not know of anyone who was Bábi, neither could he ask anyone if they knew any Bábis.
This is the third post in a series of posts telling the life story of Zaynu’l-Muqarrabín.
In 1253 his father went on pilgrimage but passed away before he reached his destination. Zaynu’l-Muqarrabín took over the role of being the Mullah of his father’s mosque, as was customary. Some years after in 1260, Zaynu’l-Muqarrabín travelled Karbila and Najaf on pilgrimage. On his way he met a certain Mulla Momen who was one of Siyyid Kazmis disciples. Mulla Momen wished Zaynu’l-Muqarrabín good fortune and he also expressed his desire that Jinab-i-Zayn would have the honor of meeting the Exalted Siyyid (referring to the Báb) in Karbila. At that time some of the Bábis waited to meet the Báb on His way back from pilgrimage in Mecca and Medina. However, the Báb returned to Iran by another route.
