Until recently, it was a common thought that followers of the Prophet Muhammad never have been mentioned in Middle Persian texts by their real name. The only known use of the term Muslim(s) found at the turn of the century in the 5th book of Dēnkard, has been enriched by two new attestations identified in the Pahlavi texts Nāmagīhā ī Mānūscīhr and Zand-ī Wahman Yasn.
