Bandar-e Māhšahr, (q.v.), Sarbandar, Susangerd, Howayza, Ḥamidiya, and Šādegān still have Mandaeans. vii INTRODUCTION TO THE NEW EDITION In her Mandaeans of Iraq and Iran, Ethel S. Drower relates a tradition that the Mandaean sacred books were brought down from the world of light and entrusted to Adam by the savior spirit Hibil Ziua. The source of this tradition, her chief informant (and good friend) Hirmiz bar Anhar of Baghdad, added that these books included The Great Treasure.

Today, this area belongs to Iraq and Khuzestan Province in Iran. Because they were persecuted in that area, . Mandaeans are a people who straddle the borders between Iran and Iraq. They are concentrated primarily in the south of Iraq and the Arab-populated Iranian province of Khuzestan.
