Two Baha'i Opium traders

1) Mírzá Áqá Taryakí

His given name was Muhammad. He was known among the family as Áqá Mírzá Áqá Kúchak [the junior]. He engaged in a business trading in opium with China.

2) Mírzá ʿAlí Taryakí

As his trade was mostly in opium, he was known as Hájí Taryakí. In the latter part of his life, he attained the presence of Baháʾuʾlláh in Haifa.
