Stephen Lambden

In progress 2000s + 2017

The son of Shaykh Ḥusayn ibn `Abd al-Ṣamad al-`Āmilī (919-984 AH = 1512-1576 CE) who was appointed Shaykh al-Islam at the then Safavid capital Qazvin by Shah Ṭahmasb (930-984 AH =1524-1576 CE). He was born near Baalbek on the 27th Dhu'l-Ḥijja 953 AH = 18th February 1547 CE and died Isfahan 12th Shawwāl 1030 AH = 29th August 1621 CE. A polymathic and widely travelled individual Shaykh Bahā'ī is viewed by some as the Islamic Mujaddid ("Renewer") of the 11th/17th century. The elder Majlisi, Muhammad Taqi Majlisi, described him as follows in his al-Rawdat (22:1),"[He is] al-Shaykh al-A`ẓam ("the Supreme Shaykh"), al-Wālid al-Mu`azzam ("the Venerated Father"), Imam al-`Allāmah ("the Imam of the Most Erudite"), Malik al-Fuḍalā' wa'l-Udabā' wa'l-Muḥaddithīn ("Commander of the Most Eminent Ones, the Cultured Persons and the Masters of Tradition"), Bahā' al-millat wa'l-Ḥaqq wa'l-Dīn ("the Splendor of the Religious Community and of the Real One [God] and of Religion")" (cited introduction to the Miftah al-Falah [1422/2001 ed], 4). Shaykh Baha'i was an accomplished theologian, philosopher, mathematician, Sufi inclined mystic, architect, grammarian and more besides. Bahā' al-Dīn al-`Āmilī was the one-time supremely powerful Shaykh al-Islām under Shāh `Abbās I (r. 996/1588- 1038/1629) at his then Safavid capital Isfahan. Shaykh Baha'i wrote a poem dar rumuz-i ism-i a`zam in which He claimed to disclose yet conceal something of the secret of the ism-i a`zam - see Lambden trans. below:

The writings of Bahā' al-Dīn al-`Āmilī (b. Baalbeck c.1547, d. Isfahan 1622 CE),  Shaykh Bahā'ī , his uses of the word Bahā', and Baha'i Perspectives about him

Perhaps the most famous Baha' al-Din was the Safavid theologian, mystic, mathematician, architect, man of letters and polymath,  Muhammad ibn Husayn al-Amili author of around 100 works including a well-known anthology entitled Kashkul ("Begging-Bowl"). A one time Shaykh al-Islam of Isfahan appointed by Shah 'Abbas the Great, he adopted the takhallus (pen-name) Shaykh Baha'.  This great Baha' al-Din is also especially famous as a poet.

In an untitled Persian Tablet mostly concerned with the exercise of wisdom (hikmat) in proclaiming the Bahai religion and making reference to the martyrdom of Aga Buzurg Khurasani (d. July 1869) known as Badi` ("Wondrous") who delivered the Tablet of Baha"-Allah to Nasir al-Din Shah, Baha'-Allah refers to "Shaykh Bahai'i and his poetry" though it is unclear whether he saw him as one possessed of any exalted station:

As to that which thou hast observed in the poems of Shaykh-i Baha'. This servant ('abd = Shaykh Baha'i) giveth testimony (shahadat) to the mysteries (asrar) that are today unveiled throughout the expanse of the heavens and of the earth, as realized by that eminent one (an jinab) [the addressee]! Indeed, one hundred thousand the like of that late Shaykh [Baha'i] and many more beyond even that one, never did come to realize anything of significance. It is thus the case, as thou have born witness, that the informed `ulama' either entertain imaginary fancies (awhamat) regarding the bodily manifestation of the Qa'im, or produce numerous specious pages (awraq-i agfah) thus blackening things in refutation [of the Babi-Bahal Cause] by mentioning all manner of fanciful notions (zannunat) that are of no lasting value. Numerous books have been composed regarding these matters from which nothing touching upon true understanding is generated" [The above translation is under revision and correction]

Various Baha'i scholars and apologists, most notably, the Persian born `Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khavari (b. Mashhad 1902 - d. Tehran 1972), have interpreted certain poems of Shaykh Baha'i as indicating his special gnosis of the person of Baha'-Allah or of the Baha'i religion. Though he lived  300 or so years before the onset of the Babi-Baha'i era, he is said to have have atttained a  mystical knowledge of the ism-i a`zam (Ar. al-ism al-a`zam) or Greatest Name of God as the word Baha'. 

 

Some Baha'i Interpretations of the status and insight of Bahā' al-Dīn al-`Āmilī

`Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khavari (d. 1972).

In a number of his compilations and writings the Persian Baha'i apologist `Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khavari (d. 1972) had occasion to note how select Shi`i sources, including the poetry of Shaykh Baha'i,  utilized the word baha' as the al-ism al-a`zam.
