Dr. Ata’u’llah Khan

The first Afghan who heard of the Baha’i faith outside of Afghanistan was Dr. `Ata’u’llah Khan, one of Afghanistan’s first medical doctors educated outside of the country. 

Dr. `Ata’u’llah Khan heard of the faith from Mirza Abu’l-Fadl Gulpaygani around 1890s in Samarqand and soon after became a Baha’i. 

Today, more than 50 members of his family, living around the world, are Baha’is.
