Mobaiedians a name given to the followers of the famous Mohammedan impostor Borkai or Mokanna (q.v.). They made an insurrection in the province of Khorassan against the caliph Mahadi, who, however, at length defeated them. Their name is derived from an Arabic word signifying white, the color of their dress, by which they were distinguished from the adherents of the caliph, who were clothed in black garments.
