Title: The Pure One

Táhirih and Qurratu'l-`Ayn are both titles of Fátimih Baraghání (1814 or 1817 - 1852), an influential poet and theologian of the Bábí faith in Iran. As a prominent Bábí (she was the seventeenth disciple or "Letter of the Living" of the Báb), she is highly regarded by Bahá'ís and often mentioned in Bahá'í literature as an example of courage in the struggle for women's rights. Her date of birth is uncertain, as birth records were destroyed at her execution.
