People of Bayan or Bayanis

Those who believe the true successor of The Bab is Mirza Yahya Subh-e-Azal and not Mirza Hussai Ali Noori (Bahá'u'lláh)

Generally, historians have referred to those followers of the Primal Point, The Bab who rejected the claims of Mirza Husayn Ali Nuri and followed the Bab’s successor Mirza Yahya Nuri (entitled Subh-i Azal) as Azalis. This naming was mainly used to make a distinction between what they called two factions of Babis (i.e. Azalis and Bahá'ís). It also suited the Bahá'í purpose, as it would hide away the relationship between Bayanis and the Bab. In fact this is how Bahá'ís refer to Bayanis even though Aqdas (the Bahá'í principal book) uses same term that was used in Persian Bayan i.e. People of Bayan (or Bayanis). The term Azali may also imply that Subh-i Azal had a claim of his own and that perhaps he was the author of new teachings which is incorrect. In essence, Bayanis need not be re-labelled. The term Bayani fully and uniquely identifies them and qualifies their belief. In summary, there is no such thing as Azali as all Azalis are Bayanis and all Bayanis are Azalis. They have very informative site and looks to be an organized sect.
