She-Serpent. In Epistle to the Son of the Wolf, Bahá'u'Iláh addresses the Imám-Jum'ih of Iṣfáhán, MIr Muḥammad-Ḥusayn, as Raqs̲h̲á. He is condemned for his instigation of the martyrdom of the King and Beloved of Martyrs, to whom he owed a sum of money. He died in 1881 of a disease so loathsome that even his family would not touch him.
[BD 193]

"She-Serpent." The Imám-Jum'íh of Iṣfáhán was thus stigmatized by Bahá'u'lláh (SW 100).
[BG 42]
