Darazī. A founder of the Druzes, when he recognized the Khalīfa al-Ḥākim as the incarnation of the universal reason (or Logos) which had first been bestowed on Adam, and had then been transmitted through the prophets to ʿAlī, and thence to the Fātimid caliphs (khalīfa). He was probably assassinated, but for reasons which are uncertain.
