In 1238-1243 AD, During the reign of Mohammad Vali Mirza in Yazd, the Zoroastrians were accused of blasphemy and infidelity. And finally, the Qajar prince asked them questions about the basis of religion and in this way, their religious legitimacy was proven and cleared of accusation. Mobed Khodabakhsh son of Forud, Dastur Kheikhosro son of Khodabakhsh and Herbed Jamasp were the ones who answered the questions. This important event led the Zoroastrian community to formulate and sustain these questions and answers. In 1207 Y., Herbed Khodabakhsh son of Herbed Jamasp Mubarakeh composed them in a treatise entitled Din Mas'lah (Problem of The Religion). A manuscript of it, No. 358, is kept in the Manekji Collection of the Cama Library .
