This verse begins with the following words:
Whoso layeth claim to a Revelation direct from God, ere the expiration of a full thousand years, such a man is assuredly a lying impostor.
Critique: By this verse Mirza Husain tries to close the door to the divine position of prophethood for anyone after him for 1000 years. No where any indication is also given about the person to come after the expiry of 1000 years. Perhaps he thought by then the imperialist masters of the Baha’is would have succeeded in their aims of corrupting the beliefs of Moslems. While laying down the criteria for his successor, he forgot to measure himself on the same criteria. He has appeared immediately after his predecessor prophet Ali Mohammad Shirazi “the so called Bab” and after more than 1000 years of the Holy Prophet Mohammad(pbuh).
