Title: The Pure One

Thirih and Qurratu'l-`Ayn are both titles of Ftimih Baraghn (1814 or 1817 - 1852), an influential poet and theologian of the Bb faith in Iran. As a prominent Bb (she was the seventeenth disciple or "Letter of the Living" of the Bb), she is highly regarded by Bah's and often mentioned in Bah' 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.
