Afnán-i-Yazdí (Arabic: أفنان اليازدي), also known as Ḥájí Mírzá Muḥammad-Taqí, surnamed Vakílu'd-Dawlih (1830-1909) was an eminent follower of Bahá’u’lláh. He is identified as one of the nineteen Apostles of Bahá’u’lláh.

He was an Afnán, a cousin of the Báb and the chief builder of the first House of Worship in 'Ishqábád, present day Turkmenistan, which had been initiated by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in or about 1902.
