Tahirih Qurratu’l-`Ayn Risalih dar Javab-i Mulla Javad-i Qazvini (Refutation of Mulla Javad Qazvini). Printed in Mazandarani, Tarikh-i Zuhur al-Haqq, vol. 3, pp. 483-501. Digitally republished, East Lansing, Mi.: H-Bahai, 1998

Denis MacEoin, Sources for Early Babi Doctrine and History, pp. 109-110, writes: "A number of treatises by Qurratu'l-`Ayn have survived. The earliest of these seems to be the risala referred to by Hamadani, who says that she wrote some two to three thousand verses in reply to questions posed by two Shaykhi ulama, Mulla `Abd al-`Ali and Mulla Jawad (Vilyani?). I discovered a copy of this treatise in the manuscript collection INBA [Iran National Baha'i Archives] 6003C, running from p. 332 to p. 379. The colophon at the end of the letter is dated 1262/1846, but the letter itself seems to have been written from Karbala' as early as 1261/1845; this is indicated at the top of a printed copy of the major part of the risala contained in Zuhur al-Haqq." Fadil-i Mazandarani's Tarikh-i Zuhur al-Haqq, vol. 3, pp. 484-501, thus reprints a large portion of this treatise, to which MacEoin refers.
