Majdeddin bin Moussa Irani – Nephew & Son in law of Bahaullah

  Majdeddin bin Moussa Irani (before 1945 -1955), usually known to Baha’is as Mirza Majdi’d-Din, was a nephew and son-in-law of Baha’u’llah. He was the son of Baha’u’llah’s brother Moussa, known as Aqay-i- Kalim, who was a strong supporter of the Baha’i cause.

He was married to his cousin Samadiyya, the second daughter of Baha’u’llah. Majdeddin Irani was one of the inner circle of Baha’is until Baha’­u’llah’s passing, and is reported to have been given the honor of reading Baha’u’llah’s will to a group of relatives and important believers.

Later, he became one of the most significant opponents of ‘Abdu’l-Baha and sided with Mohammed Ali Bahai in the schism. He lived to be over 100 years old and continued to support Unitarian Baha’ism until the end.
