We also learn from Fatimah (A.S.), in her advanced missionary awareness and position, that she was someone who rebelled against her personal needs, however simple, for the sake of her missionary ambitions; she was someone who prioritized in favour of principles over the self. This is what we need to learn, for many of us - men and women alike - fall down when it comes to a choice between the needs of the principle and the needs of the self; we too often choose the self, and may even make a principle of service to the self.


Fatimah al-Zahra (A.S.) was unique in all her behaviour and deeds, even in her sorrow for her beloved, especially during her separation from the Messenger of Allah (PBUH).

Historians tell us that, when she went to him as he was dying, she embraced him and he whispered something in her ear which made her weep. Then, when he whispered something that made her laugh, she was asked:


'How quickly (your) laughing after weeping?!' She said: 'I shall not reveal the Messenger of Allah's secret in his life.' So, when she was asked about this after his death, she said: 'He whispered in my ear first that he was going to meet his Lord and that his soul was announced to him (his death), so I wept; then he whispered in my ear again that I was going to be the first of his family to go after him, so I laughed!'


Where else would you find a young woman, whatever her love for her father, become happy when he tells her that she is going to be the first to die after him?


What relationship deeper could be than this, and what unity of spirit could be stronger?

Another narration by al-Hakim in al-Mustadrak states: 'The Messenger of Allah used, when he came back from a battle or journey, to come to the mosque and pray two rak'as to thank Allah..... then would enter to (the house of) Fatimah, then he would come to his wives'.

This meant that Fatimah (A.S.) held the prime place in the relationships between the Prophet (S.A.W.) and other people, including his wives.


In the same book, al-Mustadrak, al-Hakim also narrated: 'The Prophet (S.A.W.), when he used to travel, the last person he would see was Fatimah.'

Thus her image would stay in his mind, and the kindness and emotion, with which she used to embrace him, would stay with him in his travel and his memory, to comfort him.


Al-Hakim added: 'And when he returned from a journey, the first person he would see would be Fatimah.'


Historians have said that the Prophet (S.A.W.) did not accept that Fatimah (A.S.) became separated from him even after her marriage and, therefore, did not accept that she lived in a house far away from him, so she lived in the house next to his so that he could enter into her house directly from his.

In al-Isti'ab we read: ''Ayshah was asked: who was the most beloved person to the Messenger of Allah? She replied: Fatimah. I asked: and amongst men? She said: her husband...'


This is an important witness by 'Ayshah for Fatimah and Ali (A.S.).


There are many stories from her life which tell how she used to study her father's thoughts to know what he liked and disliked, what opened up his heart and what closed it. An example of this was when he (S.A.W.) came back from a journey and entered her house, looked around a little, then left. Quickly she knew that something bothered the Messenger of Allah (S.A.W.). She thought about it and realized that on the door of her house was a curtain and that she had two bracelets in her hands; she took the curtain down and took off the bracelets and sent them with her sons and said: 'Say greetings to my father and say to him: we have not introduced anything after you except this, it is for you to do with them what you like.'


When the Prophet (S.A.W.) heard this, his expression relaxed. He was moved by this generous, wonderful, spiritual gesture by his daughter, and this thoughtful response, and gave these things to the poor, saying: 'She did this! May her father be sacrificed for her! May her father be sacrificed for her! May her father be sacrificed for her! What have the family of Muhammad (S.A.W.) to do with life: they have been created for the hereafter!'


This is what every girl with a mission should learn, when her father is a man of missionary affiliations and responsibilities; as too should every woman with someone who has a missionary dimension in his life: she should learn not to get too engrossed with her own affairs, but to open herself up to the responsibilities of her father, husband, brother or son so as to join with him in the dynamic movement of responsibility, and not to add to the burdens to his responsibility. For we see many great men, past and present, become burdened by the people who are around them: while when they think in a missionary manner, those around them think only of themselves.

To be continued ...

There she was, and having opened her eyes to life, she saw her father (PBUH) coming every now and then, weighed down by the pressures, burdens and harm inflicted by the atheists; so she would embrace her father and relieve his pain and take care of him with all kindness.

One day, she saw her father (PBUH) in the Holy Mosque of Makkah after the atheists had dumped dirt and rubbish over his back while he was praying to his Lord. She promptly went forward and removed the rubbish with her small hands, expressing her sadness and condolences to him (PBUH) with her tears.


This is what made her open up to her responsibilities in her early childhood to stand by her father, to take care of him and empathize with him; and he was the one who had lost his mother, and his sympathetic wife. She stood by him when he was challenged with the Message: some called him names, others accused him of being insane, others threw dirt and stones on him; his uncle Abu Lahab crying out: 'No doubt, Muhammad (PBUH) has bewitched you!'


But when he returned home, he would be greeted by Fatimah (A.S.), with her sympathy and care, which was not that of a child weeping without awareness..... She was sensing that his pain was also hers and so amassed during her childhood the pain of the Message and pain of the Messenger... And whosoever amasses in their early childhood the awareness of the pain of the Messenger and the Message cannot find time for leisure or playing or purposelessness; playing and purposelessness occur in our lives because of an emptiness, which we are trying to fill.


This was how Fatimah (A.S.) grew up, not like other children, but as a person with mission in her feelings, emotions, opinions and her whole dynamic attitude.


Her Relationship with the Holy Prophet (PBUH)

Ibn 'Abdul Barr, in al-Istee'ab, narrated - and we would like very much to use it, as it was a Sunni source which represents a neutral source, so that the Shi'ah could not be accused of talking out of emotion - that 'Ayshah said: 'I had not seen any one who was more resembling the Messenger of Allah in his speech, conduct and manners as Fatimah; when she used to enter (his house) he would stand up for her, take her hand and kiss it and make her sit in his sitting place; and when he used to enter (her house) she would stand up for him, take his hand and kiss it and make him sit in her sitting place'.

When we study this text, we can conclude two things: first, the unity and complete merging between Fatimah's personality and her father's, as the person most closely resembling him. This is reflected even in his walking, as seen in many narrations, such as 'Fatimah came and her walk did not fail the walking of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH)'; second, the depth of the spiritual relationship between the Prophet (PBUH) and Fatimah (A.S.), a relationship which the Prophet (PBUH) had with Fatimah (A.S.) alone.

To be continued...

Fatimah (A.S.) was the only woman connecting Prophethood and Imamate and was the link between the two. She was the daughter of the Holy Prophet (PBUH), the wife of the first Imam (A.S.) and the mother of the rest of the Imams (A.S.) who descended from her and her husband Ali (A.S.). Allah singled her out with this virtue and peculiarity because she was the most perfect and highest example in purity, sanctity, worship, asceticism and morals.



According to some Qur"an commentaries (tafsir), when the Quraysh (tribe) said that the Prophet (PBUH) had no offspring, the chapter of al-Kawthar was revealed: "Verily We have given thee the Kawthar (Abundance). So pray thou unto thy Lord! And offer sacrifice. Verily, thy enemy shall be the one cut off (in his progeny)." (Qur"an 108:1-3)

"We have given you al-Kawthar" means we have given you the abundant good, which shall last throughout your life and after it; therefore, turn your face unto your Lord in prayer, as mention of your name shall never end and your offspring shall never perish; it is those standing against you who are more deserving of this description.


This revelation was given against the backdrop of the pronouncements by some of the Quraysh"s most scurrilous men - such as al-"As bin Wa"il, Abu Jahl, "Uqbah bin Abi Mu"ayt and Ka"b bin al-Ashraf - that the Prophet (PBUH) was cut off from male children, after the death of his son al-Qasim. Hence, it is clear that the abundant good - al-Kawthar - was pointing to the abundant offspring which the Prophet (PBUH) would have through his daughter Fatimah (A.S.), and that this was a reply to those people and their effort to weaken the Prophet"s spirits.

Supporting our interpretation, al-Tabataba"i, in al-Mizan commentary, said: "Without that, the words "Verily, thy enemy shall be the one cut off" would be useless."

Fatimah (peace be upon her) is a bright student in the school of Islam. She takes lesson from her father as the best teacher: the lesson of humanity, morality, devotion, generosity, purity, benevolence, restraining her anger, serving people, etc. And her father, who found her ready tried to construct her character. He would try to teach her as much as possible, each of them separately is the lesson of life for her and the women community.

He taught her some practical lessons, concentrating her thought towards new facts. The day when Fatimah (peace be upon her) asked for a servant to help her in the house chores, how the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) directed her thought towards another direction, and how he taught her the praise (Tasbihat) after the prayer. She would take lessons from the father and her husband. Even she had some writings from what she had learnt, as she said once to Fezzeh she compared those writings with the value of Hassenain. It means that as a mother, a wife, as well as an infallible, she was her father’s student and deserved value for her father’s teachings.

Fatimah’s Faith and Worship:

According to the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants), belief to Allah was so penetrated in her nature and heart that she neglected all things at the time worshipping Allah. And under the protection of Allah’s recognition, she believed in Him and was proud of having relationship with Him.

The love towards Allah has so penetrated in her soul that she did not have any repose. In all times and situations, her deeds showed clearly her servitude to Allah through her treatment, praise to Allah, and way of life. Her ultimate attraction is towards the Divinity.

She worships Allah but not as to go to a corner, fleeing from the society and the people, and it does not mean that she stops her duties and social mission, but she resists against her ego, and, as a result, finds a new character.

Fatimah’s motto is: اغیر الله اتخذوا اولیا فاطرالسموات والارض Can I choose another Lord except Allah, who is the creator of the skies and the earth? No, it seems impossible.

But Allah is her guardian, and that is He, who guardians the pious and competent people. When an opportunity raised, she started to praise and worship Allah. And that is a cause not only for her development and perfection, but also for helping the people to be kept in safety and purity.

Imam Hassan (A.S) remembers his childhood and says,”‌ I saw my mother worshiping and praying every night and always praying for people.”‌ I asked her, “Mother, why you do not first pray for us as your children?”‌ she answered, “My son, first neighbours, then house”‌. الجار ثم الدار

All her deeds were in the direction of the Divine will, and all her deeds were considered as worship: her work, life, housekeeping, taking care of children, helping the poor, etc. are all in Allah’s way and for Allah’s pleasure.

Fatimah’s Purposefulness:

Fatimah (peace be upon her) is a noble woman with purpose, and due to this fact she did not take any colour and did not come to agreement with injustice. Although she was young, and like other youth in youth crisis, had got some ambitions, she never stopped her purpose and did not commit any offence.

She tolerated the hardships to obtain her purpose even under the severe torture of the enemy. In general, her marriage to Ali (peace be upon him) signified her purpose, because she knew that Ali (peace be upon him) was not a kind of man who tried to make her happy as the society expected. She married the one, who was always in the battlefield to achieve his mission.

Under the protection of her purpose, she was not willing to be captured by hypocrisy and deceits, lose her sobriety and vigilance; and because of her purpose, she was far from the adversity and did not heed the world allurement. She was unique in her purpose, and we do not know anybody like her in different periods of history.

The policy, after the death of her father, was an illogical and aggressive policy was “الغایه تبرر الوسیله”‌ [the end justifies the means]. This is the policy of aggression, setting fire to the door, inserting Fatimah (peace be upon her) between the door and the wall causing miscarriage for her, breaking her side, slapping her in the face in order to make Ali (peace be upon him) submit, usurping the Fadak to impoverish Ali and Fatimah (peace be upon her) and as a result impoverish the whole Muslims.

The policy during Fatimah’s life was the policy of pressure, the economic as well as social pressure, fastening rope around Ali’s neck, keeping the swords ready over his head and asking him for pledge; assailing towards Fatimah’s home, breaking the honor of the Prophet’s household, and degrading the rights of the real human beings…. She had been faced with such a policy, but she continued her campaign and struggles even if it resulted in her death.

Fatimah’s seeking for Justice:

Fatimah (peace be upon her) was just, because she loved the right, and was firm in her way. She shared the chores of the house with Fezeh and regarded equality with her maid servant. She was also just in speech, because she knew justice as the real basis of the stability in the social system.

Throughout her life, she attacked the leaders of oppression and discrimination. She invited the people towards the government of justice.

Fatimah (peace be upon her) was just and seeking for justice. She attacked the bandits of thought and reason, those who had prevented the people from thinking, had destroyed the thought and rationalism, had blocked the people’s real way of thinking, and divested the people of their real rights….

On the way of seeking justice, she had got a special kind of rationality and reasoning in which there was no smell of sensation and prejudice and under its protection, she revealed the real nature of the Caliphs. She was sacrificed for the sake of justice and right seeking. She upraised for her husband, not because that Ali (peace be upon him) was her husband, but due to the fact that he was right, and appointed by Allah, the Almighty. It is believed that even if Ali (peace be upon him) were not Fatimah’s husband, Fatima (peace be upon her) would upraise for him.

Fatimah’s Jihad and Struggle

During her short life, especially in the last three months of her life, Fatima (peace be upon her) had a great jihad, an effective and vital jihad; a jihad which has been unique in the history of women’s lives, and due to this fact, it has been registered in the history. She proved that struggle is not all by sword and arrow. Sometimes, it is aggressive and sometimes, quiet. Sometimes, struggle is achieved by the application of silence, lack of attention, and disagreement, and sometimes by the application of aggression.

She was aware that struggle has damages, and even may result in death. Being aware of these aspects, she accepted the struggle and its resultant damages.

She knew that sometimes the struggles do not achieve the result immediately, but sometimes, the seed of a movement is planted and its fruit will be obtained after decades or even centuries. Therefore, she never gave up and did not evade struggling until she had power in her body. She continued her struggles along with Ali (peace be upon him) and sometimes independently. She argued with the word of logic and defamed them and then proved she was right although she was prohibited from her right.

Fatimah (A.S) and Administering Justice:

She was active in administering justice, and considered it as a responsibility for herself. For administering justice, she made a court of the mosque and brought Abubakr to trial. Although she had been damaged and had lost her father, she argued, made speech, and said to Abubakr, “I will lay the blame on you in the day of resurrection”‌.

She revealed some facts to the people about the injustice of the Caliphs and presented all these discussions and trials when others had no right to present their views, did not dare to speak and did not feel any power in themselves to stand against injustice. Her defense in the Mosque concerning Fadak revealed some facts to the people. Therefore, it sounds necessary to be aware of Fadak issue and its importance.

1. Fadak Issue:

Fadak was a piece of land that was reached to the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) by the Jews with no war or bloodshed in the 7th year of Hijrat; on the other hand, the Jews had granted it to the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) personally. Then, the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) registered that and in the same year dedicated it to Fatimah (peace be upon her) for reasons. This dedication was the Prophet’s right, because it was not a spoil to share others in it.

Fatimah (peace be upon her) had it under her control for years, and after the Prophet’s demise, the Caliphs decided to usurp it from Fatimah (peace be upon her), because it was believed that the prophets never leave anything after themselves as heritage, and even if they leave, it belongs to the people. Based on this opinion, they were about to make Ali and Fatimah (peace be upon them) bankrupt economically.

The Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) had dedicated something and they usurped it. Did Fatimah (peace be upon her) get it after her father’s death to be considered as inheritance? Did she live in her father’s house that Fadak, dedicated to her four years before the Prophet’s demise, be considered as her heritage?

Fatimah (peace be upon her) had an independent life of her own, and in spite her economic independence, the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) had dedicated Fadak to her, and even registered it in her name, and the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) never said that Fadak belonged to all Muslims while Fatimah (peace be upon her) never used its profit for her own sake but the poor Muslims.

2. The Importance of Fadak:

The Fadak issue is having two-dimensions:

Economic and political. They usurped Fadak from Fatima (peace be upon her) for different reasons, and one of them was to impoverish Ali and Fatimah (peace be upon them), because they spent the income of Fadak for the poor. Although Abubakr knew Fatimah (peace be upon her) was right, and it needed no evidence, he usurped Fadak from Ali and Fatima (peace be upon her) in order to weaken their souls, make them indigent and keep them busy not to think about the unjust Caliphate, or stand against the present government by means of its income….

Omar said to Abubakr, “ ان الناس عبید الدنیا”‌ that means, “the people are the servants of the world”‌. If you cut Ali’s hand from Fadak, Khums, and Beit ul-mal, the people will disperse from his round”‌.

The efforts of the Caliphs in this regard were somehow futile, but Fatimah (peace be upon her) did not evade it and started defending administering her right.

3. Right-seeking of Fatima (peace be upon her):

She proved women can administers right by regarding the Islamic laws. In Abubakr’s session, she showed that she did not want wealth for her own, but to use its income to help the poor.

In this regard, she said to Abubakr, “I found myself responsible to say this word and express my complaint in this regard”‌.

Then, she brought Ali (peace be upon him) and Omme Aiman as witness to prove her claim. Omme Aiman witnessed that Fadak belonged to Fatima (peace be upon her). Abubakr was about to divert from main direction of speech, but Omme Aiman did not let him and said, “if you do not answer my question, I won’t let you speak any more.”‌ Then, he went on “Did you hear that the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) said Omme Aiman is an inhabitant of heaven?”‌ Abubakr answered, “Yes”‌, then she continued, “so I witness that Fadak belongs to Fatima”‌. When Omar discerned the scene, he said, “this woman is Persian, and her witness is not accepted!”‌

4. Fatimah’s Defense:

She made a speech and invited the people to Allah, praised the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) and his prophetic mission, spoke about the materialism and Zakat, etc. Then, she listened to whatever Abubakr said.

Abubakr expressed an unauthentic Hadith, which meant, “the prophets do not leave any Dirham‌‌‌‌ and Dinar ( Arabic units of money) as heritage”‌, therefore, “you have no right of your father’s heritage.”‌ She replied, “But Fadak was not the Prophet’s heritage, it was a gift, dedicated by the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) during his life time to me”‌. Then, she stated, “O heavens! According to the holy Qur’an, do you inherit your father but I don’t? It is a new speech. You have disregarded Allah’s holy book and resorted to a word, contradictory to the holy Qur’an. The holy Qur’an says,

اولوالارحام بعضهم اولی ببعض فی کتاب الله…

Has this verse been negated by other versus? Are you more familiar with holy Koran than my father and my cousin (Ali)?

The holy Qur’an says,

یوصیکم اله فی اولادکم للذکر مثل حظ الانثیین

The share of heritage for boys is two times more than girls.

It also says,

و ورث سلیمان داوود

And Davood inherited Soleiman.

It says somewhere else,

هب لی من لدنک ولیا یرثنی ویرث من آل یعقوب

Zakaria prayed to Allah to beget a child in order to inherit his parents and relatives.”‌

It also says,

ان ترک خیر الوصیه للوالدین و الاقربین بالمعروف

If the dead leaves anything as heritage, it belongs to his parents and family.

Abubakr was astonished and gave up as if he has not heard such verses.

5. Fatimah’s Sermons:

In her defense, Fatima (peace be upon her) managed to surmount them, and it was the time of making the final decision. But suddenly Abubakr blew out crying to mislead the people’s minds. The people sat there quietly watching the event. Fatima (peace be upon her) addressed the people, “why are you quiet when seeing the honor of Islam has been transgressed? Why are you quiet when seeing my right has been usurped?”‌

She came home and addressed Ali (peace be upon him) that they belittled my character and usurped my right. Then Ali felt sympathy with her and asked her to forebear for Allah’s sake, and Fatima (peace be upon her) forbore.

6. The Survey of Fadak Event:

Here, regardless of emotion, it must be stated that Fatima (peace be upon her) was oppressed, and there was no intention to win Allah’s pleasure in the Caliphs’ act, because:

-Abubakr recited “Maasher ul-Anbia”‌ Hadith, and it was not authentic, and there was no record for it, because it was contradicted by the verses of the holy Qur’an. But, on the other side, Fatimah, Ali, and Omme Aiman’s witness was not accepted.

-Not accepting Fatimah’s speech, Abubakr accused her of mendacity and ignored the Tathir (purification) verse of the holy Qur’an.

-If it is true that the prophets do not leave anything as heritage, why Ayesheh, Abubakr’s daughter, usurped the Prophet’s chamber and even did not let Imam Hassan’s corpse be buried near the tomb of the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants)?

-What happened that they did not listen to Ali’s speech, but listened to Ayesheh?

Taken from: Fatimah (A.S) The Most Paramount Lady of Islam

Fatimah (peace be upon her) was endangering her life, because she had disturbed their repose with her own objections and anger.

She objected to the Caliph’s status, their unjust actions, their selfishness, Ummah anxiety and disunity, their wrong bases, etc.

Yesterday, she observed the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) on the pulpit, but today Abubakr, being incompetent for attaining this position, has sat there, and this irritated Fatima (peace be upon her).

She objected just for the sake of Allah and endeavoured to make the oppressed of the society move and upraise as a volcano to burn and annihilate any kind of injustice and take up the real way of human life.

Her Manner of Objection:

She is in a special situation in which she cannot take up arms; therefore, she has to demonstrate her wrath and objection through tongue and negative campaign. Besides, she knew that swearing does not heal sorrows, and even it does not deserve her esteem. Therefore, she must speak, criticize, shout, and rebel.

She spoke against Abubakr in the Mosque, gathered the women of Mohajerin (the Emigrants) and Ansar (the Helpers) and revealed all the secrets. She went to the doors of the Prophet’s companions, described and embodied the future status of Ummah, tried to make them move, and asked them to administer justice, etc.

But in regard to the negative campaign, she made the most of the opportunities, because she knew that the star of fortune may appear one time in life and afterwards, may never appear. Therefore, she benefited the different methods for this campaign.

Although she could speak, sometimes, she expressed her wrath through silence. She even was about to make use of her death against oppression. She recommended that her corpse be buried at night, lest Caliphs participate in her funeral ceremony and say prayer for her.

By means of her historic will, she showed her dissatisfaction towards the Caliphs transgression. And it must be stated that everybody both friends and foes knew that Fatimah’s dissatisfaction is the dissatisfaction of Allah and His Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants).

Fatimah’s Future Prediction:

Among all the ignorant, Fatimah (peace be upon her) was awake and agile and aware of the events. She also could predict the future and knew what would happen. Her predictions and outlook were Divine, stable, moderate and sensible. She knew that ignoring the Caliphate of Ali (peace be upon him) and his real right would result in a bitter and dark consequences for the society.

She predicted the future of Ummah in a meeting with the women of Mohajerin (the Emigrants) and Ansar (the Helpers) as so:

“What they have done is like a pregnant camel that we must wait to deliver. Then, instead of milk, you will draw bowls full of blood and fatal venom from it. Afterwards, the felons will sustain a loss and the next generation will feel the effect of the sinister foundation of the ancestors”‌.

Fatima’s prediction was later confirmed, and came true. The people tasted bitter and tolerated so many pains under the load of the government so-called Islamic. Of course, the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants), Ali and Fatima (peace be upon them) and the real companions of the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) had evinced their exaltation, but there existed no ears, sense of responsibility, and undertaking.

Fatimah’s State of Being Oppressed:

Fatimah (peace be upon her) is an oppressed woman, but she never yield. She had so many strong objections to the unjust acts of the Caliphs.

But she was oppressed, because her right was neglected, nobody answered to her shout in the mosque, and even killed her with pain. Although the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) knew Fatima’s dissatisfaction, his, nobody paid attention to her dissatisfaction.

When Ayesheh (the Prophet’s wife) made a fuss, Talheh and Zobeir rushed to help her despite the fact that their reaction was considered as the development of injustice in the history and Islamic society. But, on the contrary, at the time when the society had the tinge of the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) yet, and the remembrance of the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) had not forgotten yet, nobody paid attention to Fatima’s plead. It was as if Fatima (peace be upon her) was inferior to Ayesheh.

Yes, she was oppressed, but who was the oppressor? Who seized her right?

Fatimah’s groan:

The history has recorded her name as one of the fives who cried a lot: Adam, Noah, Jacob, Yahya (John) and Fatimah (peace be upon her). But the mystery of Fatima’s crying has been less asked, and it has been less analysed that why she cried so much despite her soul grandeur?

Was Fatima’s crying for poverty or usurpation of her property, having no luxury and no beautiful or expensive dress? Certainly not?

She cried due to the fact that Ali’s right and as a result, the Islamic right had been neglected. Also, she was dissatisfied with the past, i.e. ignorance era, and did not want it to be repeated. She cried because she saw the humanity going towards diversion, found the oppressed in pains, and the oppressors in comfort and superiority….

But why she applied the weapon of crying was because crying aroused emotions, attracted the minds and thoughts toward itself, forced some people to search about why she cried, and found out the truth through this way.

It is believed that if Fatima (peace be upon her) lived in the world today, she would cry of all these colours, and aimlessness and shed tears over all these hypocrisy, insincerity, as well as the strangeness (loneliness) of Islam. Besides, she will be sorrowful if she perceives that some of the so-called Muslims follow the wrong models.

Taken from: Fatimah (A.S) The Most Paramount Lady of Islam

With no shadow of doubt, Fatimah (peace be upon her) the first martyr of Islam after the Prophet’s demise. She sacrified herself to the way of Allah and religion. As Imam Sadiq (A.S) stated, “She received severe blows on her body for the defense of Ali (peace be upon him) i.e. the model of the holy Qur’an and the incarnation of Islam, and died when she was young.”‌

Her right was usurped, her side was broken, and she was banned from her heritage. Her husband was an oppressed, too; her children were martyred in the way of Allah….

The Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) stated, “there is nothing more valuable than two drops for Allah: the drop of tear, shed because of the fear of Allah, and the drop of blood, shed in the way of Allah.”‌

Fatimah (peace be upon her) has got these two valuable drops. After the Prophet’s demise, in about three months, she passed away, and it is said that she was not more than 14.0pt years old.

The Moments of Her demise:

As she lay dying, it is supposed that Fatimah (peace be upon her) remembered all her past and analyzed the file of her life once again at the night of her death:

-She remembered her childhood, sitting near her father, dusting her father’s head and face, and crying for her father’s loneliness.

-She remembered marrying Ali while he was poor and trying not to neglect his right even a moment. She was Ali’s confident everywhere and even discerned the rope round his neck.

-She remembered marrying Ali while he was poor and trying not to neglect his right even a moment. She was Ali’s confident everywhere and even discerned the rope round his neck.

-She remembered witnessing the diversion of the society after her father’s demise, contradictory to the Prophet’s purpose, caused by the transgression and injustice of the Caliphs.

-She remembered the Prophet’s recommendation about her, but after a short time, the audacious enemy was impudent to her, usurped her right, made her arm black, and aborted her foetus.

And Now At The Time Of Her Death:

She has no relish towards the people but a great enthusiasm towards the mercy of Allah. Her heart is broken and is objectionable towards what is happening.

She has four children of tender years; the children, who need their mother and care.

Ali (peace be upon him) at the Time of Fatimah’s Demise:

Ali (peace be upon him) sat beside Fatimah (peace be upon her) on the last day of Fatimah’s life at dusk. Although he was as a dam in front of the difficulties, and a mountain of resistance, he blew out crying when seeing Fatimah’s status. Fatimah (peace be upon her) came to her senses, and a dialogue took place between them:

-O, my cousin, are you?

-Yes, dear Fatimah, it’s me.

-This is the ninth year of our marriage.

- Yes, O my dear Fatimah.

-I did my best to be a fidle and sincere wife, didn’t I?

-Yes, dear Fatimah; your esteem, your knowledge, and your fidelity were praiseworthy. You were more honorable than everyone

“ والله انت ابرّ و اتقی واکرم”‌.

(At this time, both Ali (peace be upon him) and Fatimah (peace be upon her) cried. Fatimah (peace be upon her) got unconscious, and when came to her senses again and found Ali crying above her head. She went on:

-My cousin, is that you?

-Yes, dear Fatimah. How are you?

-Dear Ali, I want to make a will.

-Tell me Fatimah.

-My will is about my children. After my death, marry Amame, my niece, because my children are more accustomed with her. Bury me at night, and do not let the enemy attend my funeral ceremony or say prayer on me.

Then, Ali started reciting Yasin Surah (from the holy Qur’an). Fatimah then closed eyes forever.

Ali (peace be upon him) in Fatimah’s Burial:

According to Fatimah’s will, Ali (peace be upon him) buried her at night. While burying her, Ali (peace be upon him) said to the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants), “O, the Messenger of Allah, your daughter joined you so soon. Now, I have remained lonely with the grief of Fatima (peace be upon her)’s death; the clouds of grief have fallen their shadows over my heart, and the nights will pass to me with anxiety and restlessness. I will company this heart vending grief until Allah invites me to Himself. O, Messenger of Allah! Ask your daughter how a group of your Ummah allied together to oppress and usurp her right…. Ask her about her black arm and broken side…”‌

Ali (peace be upon him) on the Fatimah’s Grave:

After Fatimah’s burial, Ali (peace be upon him) felt the pain of separation and got impatient. Nothing could console him on her grave except two Rakats of prayer as well as the verse “ استعینوا بالصبروالصلوة”‌.

Ali (peace be upon him) did not only lose his wife but his confidant and partner.

Ali’s crying on her grave was an incarnation of a powerful emotion, overcoming his natural forces on her grave; Ali (peace be upon him) addressed her, “dear Zahra! I leave you but not because I do not like your company, and if I settle near your grave is not because I have lost my patience, for I am hopeful with Allah’s promise concerning the patience.”‌

Yes, whenever he wanted to console his soul, he went to her grave and opened his heart to her.

Fatimah’s Fruitful Life:

What an insight Fatimah (peace be upon her) had! What a great view and outlook she had! What a home she made, and what great children she educated; the children, who set a good example for humanity and took the responsibility of a great historic mission.

Her life was short but fruitful, and all its processes were instructive, exhilarating, lively, moving, virtuous, etc.

What great women she taught. Asma, Abubakr’s wife, being aware of the plot of Ali’s assassination, made him aware by means of the Qur’anic verses. Fezeh, who went silent after the Karbala event and did not speak except by the Qur’anic verses. Omme Aiman, known as a heavenly woman according to the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) and other women, who were provided with education by Fatimah (peace be upon her).

-Once she opened her eyes to this world and made the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) delightful.

-Once she started her divine life according to Allah’s way with Ali (peace be upon him).

-Once she closed her eyes to this world and joined her father in the heaven.

-And once she will enter the Last Judgment while complaining the oppressors and seeking for justice.

Taken from: Fatimah (A.S) The Most Paramount Lady of Islam


Who is Zahra shall dawn on Doomsday,

Enemies of her enemies in divine pardon sway,

Friends of her enemies shall contrite in dismay;

Today’s tears shed in her love tomorrow pay.

What is Zahra? First let us know

 To acquire a letter angle to peep into her woe,

If the prophets placed in one pan and she in another

Imam Sadiq says the pan of Zahra weighs heavier.

From a higher station to a lower station

If a thing given from his own possession

It is called ‘ATA’ in Arabic decorum

So Says God in Qur'an in the shortest sum.

How dear is Zahra to God, shows this chapter,

And remarks her worth to her Father -- the Messenger.

Her Father had not yet been buried,

They to avenge their broken idols to Saqifa hurried.

What Monsters in the lane appear!

Ah fear! Ah frantic fear!

Dangerous! Even for those of giant limbs mold

Can a lady with tender heart tolerate to behold?!

He round after round in his hideous form

Howling, shouting, making wilder the wild storm

Stood like a loose hanging rock

Remitting to the sight a paralyzing shock,

Sea the rattling terrors of the vengeful make

And know how his belief false, his faith fake!!!

He never seems tired of his tyrannical sway

And seems to him it is a festive day.

Ruffians and rowdies gathered more and more

Like a loud torrent and a whirlwind’s roar.

But the ringleader wants a larger pile,

Exults, and says fire alone could make him smile.

He ordered: “Bring fuel, wood and set fire”‌;

The rascals obeyed fanned by strong desire.

Their hearts like torpid rocks (in pagan) array

The winters of their souls chilled their belief astray.

No zephyr of faith sued their rocky breast

A glare, a balm which their hatred awaited to invest,

In the wilderness lost, they built their shed

In the ruin where their souls were dead,

Pleased the rowdies their diabolical power

Made them to dance forgetful of the noontide hour

Whose House it was the vulgar didn’t care,

The Cries of Zahra fell low

As the flames from the house grow,

The ringleader in sprightly spirit, in mirth, ease

Pleased with himself and the deed dazzled to please.

Each ball of sight seemed bursting from his head

And shook with dread at the sound himself had made.

The tyrant cheerful at his deed in a proud pose

Breasts the smoke, waves the sword and goes

And carries the den of curses along the way

Ashes drag the struggling savage day

She betwixt door and the wall fell bleeding

As Fizzah the maid came running.

Ah! What sorrows bloom to gloom the day

Life from its native walk shrinks away.

Shudder the near ones because to them a distant deep

The remote ones on pilgrimage wept, return again to weeps.

Miscarried Mohsen -- unborn died

What the mother felt? Falling at his side,

O, you! The Babe of early doom!

Aerial hands shall build your tomb.

With the pearls of tears crowned

And all Infant Martyrs round,

You aren’t dead in any age

Pilgrims shall recite in Qur'an your page,

Honour beheld in tears shall save

To sigh your name thro’ every grave,

Wherever you are laid

There bows heroes’ shade.

Though fallen she turns her joyless eyes

To search where her Mohsen lies,

Since then Zahra felt as if on thorn

And haying lost nightly rest wept till morn.

Even the beasts wept on their way as they pursue

Shrill roared the wind, made melancholy the view.

Ah! Lady! I leave your tale with words so few

Upsets me the tyranny committed against you.
