Did Baha’ullah understand “Urvatu’l-Vuthqá” correctly?

Blog Post # 2070

I give the verse of Quran where “Urvatu’l-Vuthqá” is mentioned in Quran with the verses in the context:

[2:253] These are the Signs of Allah; We recite them unto thee with truth. Surely, thou art one of the Messengers.
[2:254] These Messengers have We exalted, some of them above others: among them there are those to whom Allah spoke; and some of them He exalted by degrees of rank. And We gave Jesus, son of Mary, clear proofs and strengthened him with the Spirit of holiness. And if Allah had so willed, those that came after them would not have fought with one another after clear Signs had come to them; but they did disagree. Of them were some who believed, and of them were some who disbelieved. And if Allah had so willed, they would not have fought with one another; but Allah does what He desires.
[2:255] O ye who believe! spend out of what We have bestowed on you before the day comes wherein there shall be no buying and selling, nor friendship, nor intercession; and it is those who disbelieve that do wrong to themselves.

[2:256] Allah — there is no God but He, the Living, the Self-Subsisting and All-Sustaining. Slumber seizes Him not, nor sleep. To Him belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. Who is he that will intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is before them and what is behind them; and they encompass nothing of His knowledge except what He pleases. His knowledge extends over the heavens and the earth; and the care of them burdens Him not; and He is the High, the Great.
[2:257] There should be no compulsion in religion. Surely, right has become distinct from wrong; so whosoever refuses to be led by those who transgress, and believes in Allah, has surely grasped a strong handle which knows no breaking. And Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing.
[2:258] Allah is the friend of those who believe: He brings them out of every kind of darkness into light. And those who disbelieve, their friends are the transgressors who bring them out of light into every kind of darkness. These are the inmates of the Fire; therein shall they abide.
Paarsurrey says:
Baha’ullah by claiming himself god has transgressed greatly and as such has gone astray from the right path of Quran.
On the one hand Baha’ullah says that Quran is secure and not changed, if he had revealed Quran being god, he would have understood that the strong handle is Oneness of God (Allah).
By wrongly describing the “Urvatu’l-Vuthqá” or strong handle in Kitabe Iqan he has been exposed to be wrong.
Baha’ullah’s ,therefore, was neither god nor messenger/prophet of God nor manifestation of God.
Baha’ullah was simply an errant human being.
