It appears that the gentleman is saying that the style of Baha'u'llah's Writings is different from that of the Qur'an. As Mirza Abu'l-Fadl explained, the power and uniqueness of the Word of God is not in its style; it is in its ability to change human behavior. There is an article by Marzieh Gail in...

My personal understanding is the succession of Prophets who came to Carmel, including the Lesser Prophets. Both Elijah and Elisha came to Carmel, for example; and the Son refers to Jesus. I don't know what other Prophets came to Carmel.

Re: Bab's declaration: What Quran verse did he unseal?

I am unaware of a Muslim prophecy or Hadith which states that the Messiah will unseal the meaning of one specific verse; nor am I aware of anything in Baha'i literature which unseals or identifies that verse. However. We do know something about what the Bab revealed on the first night of His Revelat...

I think it means that since this is the greatest of the Dispensations, promised by all of the other Manifestations of God, that parents are richly blessed if their children recognize Baha'u'llah; and the prayers of Baha'i children for their parents have a special character and effect.
