Saints in Baha'i

Sep 2018
A saint is one who leads a life of purity, one who has freed himself from all human weaknesses and imperfections.
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Paris Talks, p. 60)

Saints are men who have freed themselves from the world of matter and who have overcome sin. They live in the world but are not of it, their thoughts being continually in the world of the spirit. Their lives are spent in holiness, and their deeds show forth love, justice and godliness. They are illumined from on high; they are as bright and shining lamps in the dark places of the earth. These are the saints of God.
(Abdu'l-Baha, Paris Talks, p. 60-61)

By this definition is it possible for nonBaha'i to be saints? It sounds like all can become a saint regardless of religion. I am wondering about this for example if a Baha'i could for examples call Kabeer (I think a Sufi who is written in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji) a saint, or someone like Augustine of Hippo.
