guzastag abdallāh (GA)
The accursed ʿAbdallāh
The Pārsīg treatise, guzastag abdallāh (GA), gives an account of a theological debate took place between the Manichaean ʿAbdallāh and the high priest Ādarfarrōbay in the presence of the Arab Caliph al-Ma'mūn (813-833 A.D.). It is said that the challenger was a native of Staxr in Persis and his name was Dēnohrmazd; and when he apostatized to Manichaeism, he chose the name ʿAbdallāh. The treatise deals with seven questions put forward by him to the high priest and the answers of Ādarfarrōbay – notice that in this text the word tāzīg means any Muslim.
