He received the title Jináb-i-Quddús (“Most Holy”) at the Conference of Badasht
. Quddús was also a participant at the Battle of Fort Ṭabarsí
. He met his death shortly after at the hands of a mob in Barfurúsh
, who tore him into pieces.
Though not regarded as a Manifestation of God
, he held a very high station. Shoghi Effendi
, in God Passes By
(page 49), writes:
“Quddús, immortalized by Him [the Báb
] as Ismu’lláhu’l-Ákh
ar (the Last Name of God); on whom Bahá’u’lláh
of Kullu’t-Tá’am later conferred the sublime appellation of Nuqtiy-i-Ukhrá (the Last Point); whom He elevated, in another Tablet, to a rank second to none except that of the Herald of His Revelation
; whom He identifies, in still another Tablet, with one of the ‘Messengers charged with imposture’ mentioned in the Qur’án; whom the Persian Bayán
extolled as that fellow-pilgrim round whom mirrors to the number of eight Vaḥíd
s revolve; on whose ‘detachment and the sincerity of whose devotion to God's will God prideth Himself amidst the Concourse on high;’ whom ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
designated as the ‘Moon of Guidance;’ and whose appearance the Revelation of St. John the Divine anticipated as one of the two ‘Witnesses’ into whom, ere the ‘second woe is past,’ the ‘spirit of life from God’ must enter”.
