Dr. Wahid Azal
An Ex-Baha'i writes : Mirza Husayn Ali Nuri's birth into a very privileged and very wealthy family has certainly colored what the Baha'i Faith has become today. His concept of suffering was contrasted against his high state of privilege and ease in his early life. For the greater of the majority of Iranians such suffering was a daily experience which was thought of not so much as an indignity but a challenge

Compare and contrast this with both the Bab and Azal. Nowhere do you find the kind of constant wussy like lamentation and sissy like bemoaning in the works of the Point or the Morning of Praeternity that Husayn 'Ali Nuri engaged in on and on and on and on as a patented style in all his writings. The Point only laments in the Persian Bayan, and He laments for very good reason. They had exiled Him to Maku at the time, a remote and perilous part of northern Iran, cut off from everything, everyone and everywhere (and even still he wrote 9 and a half Unities of the Persian Bayan and 11 of the Arabic Bayan and countless other epistles). Other than that there is nothing else. Only in the Sata'at does Azal - and on one paragraph at that - bemoan how His brother betrayed Him. That is all. A guy who is sissy and wuss like that, wailing and bemoaning, calling himself the wronged one of the worlds, when people can see for themselves how he is living in the lap of luxury, born with a golden spoon in his mouth, I am sorry, is no real man, let alone the supreme manifestation of the Age. The Bab was a MAN and a LION. Azal was a MAN and LION. Quddus was a MAN and a LION. Mulla Husayn was a MAN and a LION. Tahirih was a Lion-WOMAN (shir-zan) and a TIGER as well. Husayn 'Ali Nuri was a girl and a mouse, and his own writings condemn him as one.
