(6:90:6) أُولَٰئِكَ الَّذِينَ هَدَى اللَّهُ فَبِهُدَاهُمُ اقْتَدِهْ . What is the status of هْ in اقْتَدِهْ? Is is مفعول به ?

The هْ in اقْتَدِهْ is there for the purpose of waqaf. The imperative form of the verb ends in a vowelled letter (kasrah), so the ha sakinah is placed there for ease of pronunciation.

If it is not there, then the pronunciation on pausing would be "....tad" and not "...tadi(h)". That would not convey the correct meaning.
