Adíb

Hájí Mírzá Hasan-i-Adíbu'l-`Ulamá (ArB|حج مرزا حسن أديب العلماء, b. 1848 - d. 1919) known as Mírzá Hasan or Adíb, was an eminent follower of Bahá'u'lláh, the founder of the Bahá'í Faith, a global religion of Persian origin. He was appointed a Hand of the Cause, and identified as one of the nineteen Apostles of Bahá'u'lláh.cite book |first=Hasan |last=Balyuzi |year=1985 |title=Eminent Bahá'ís in the time of Bahá'u'lláh |publisher=The Camelot Press Ltd, Southampton |id=ISBN 0853981523 | pages = pp. 272]

Background

Mírzá Hasan was born in Talaqán in September 1848. His father was an eminent Islamic cleric and Mírzá Hasan went through the usual religious education in Tihrán and Mashhad. He became the Friday prayer leader at the Daru'l-Funun, Iran's first technical college set up by the Shah, where he received his title of Adíbu'l-'Ulamá (littérateur of the 'Ulamá) In 1874 he was employed by the Qajar princes, writing a large number of encyclopedic books on their behalf.

Conversion

Upon converting to the Bahá'í Faith, he was expelled from his work. His acceptance of Bahá'u'lláh was the result of several Bahá'í friends, including Nabíl-i-Akbar, who prompted him to investigate the teachings. In 1889 he officially converted and soon became one of the four Hands of the Cause appointed by Bahá'u'lláh.

ervice and final years

After the passing of Bahá'u'lláh in 1892, Mírzá Hasan became instrumental in dealing with the activities of Covenant-breakers in Iran. He later participated in the meetings that evolved into the Central Spiritual Assembly of Tihrán, which later became the National Spiritual Assembly of Iran, of which he was the chairman.

In 1903 he travelled to Isfahan, where he was briefly imprisoned. From there he also visited Shiraz, Bombay, and ‘Akká, where `Abdu'l-Bahá instructed him to travel with an American Bahá'í to India and Burma to help spread the Bahá'í Faith in those areas.

After returning to Tehran, he died on 2 September, 1919.
