DÍA’U’LLÁH ASGHARZÁDIH, Knight of Bahá’u’lláh

page 24
Born in 1880 into a Bahá’í family which emigrated to Ishqábád when he was fifteen years old, Día’u’lláh was throughout his life an active Bahá’í. His first pilgrimage was in 1903, his second was 469 seventeen years later, after which he settled in London, and his third was at the time of the passing of the Master when Shoghi Effendi gave him the task of making copies of the Master’s Will from the original. He was a member of the National Assembly for various periods between 1925 and 1941 and settled in Jersey as a Knight of Bahá’u’lláh in 1953 at the age of 73. He passed away in Jersey in April 1956.
