In 200AH Mamoon Rashid called Imam Raza (as) to Khorasan from Medina, no family member was allowed to accompany him. Bibi Masuma missed her brother very much and left Medina for Iran.
When she reached Sawa, she learnt the news of shahadat of her brother. On learning this, she became very ill and asked to be taken to Qum. Within a few days after her brother's death, she died. She was buried in Qum on 8th Rabi-ul-Awwal 201AH. She was only 22 years of age.

The Birth of the Holy Lady Fatemah Ma'soomah and her childhood
In the holy city of Medina, the holy household was awaiting the arrival of a new born.In the house of Imam Kadhim (A.S.), Najma, the wife of the honorable Imam was eagerly looking forward to the arrival of the child; she was counting days and nights for that day. The Imam's house was overwhelmed with happiness.
Finally, the day arrived, on the 1st of Dhil-Qa'dah 173 (A.H.) when Allah blessed the 7th Imam Musa Kadhim (A.S.) with a daughter. The child's appearance was brilliant and cheerful and she opened her pure bright eyes to this world in the house of Imam.
All the members of the Holy Household were in utter happiness for the newborn and after the Imam, may be there was not anybody as happy as his wife Najma. This was because this was the second child that was granted by the grace of Allah to Najma after 25years. 25years ago, in the same month of Dhil-Qa'dah, Najma had given birth to a baby boy who after his father was to become the Imam and was to shoulder the responsibility of Imamate and guiding the Muslims.
Yes! That was 148 (A.H.), when the eight Imam, Ali (A.S.) was born and who was given the title of Ridha. Najma got immense pleasure in her first child and after years God blessed her and her husband Musa Kadhim (A.S.) with a daughter and a sister to Imam Ridha (A.S.).
Imam Musa Kadhim (A.S.) named his daughter Fatimah, for the sake of love and special attachment he had with his grandmother Fatimah Zahra (S.A.). Fatimah's purity, modesty, and piety were such that after sometime she was referred as "Ma'soomah" (the infallible). This was because like her honorable Father, she used to keep away from all evils and sins.
Fatemah, was a name that was remembered among the Ahlul bayt who had hundreds of sad and sweet memories of the life of Bibi Fatimah (S.A.).
If anybody chose the name Fatimah for their daughters, they used to give the same respect as the prophet (S.A.W.) used to give his daughter. She was never neglected. Imam Musa Kadhim (A.S.) also followed this tradition and used to love the new girl very much and never failed to show and express his kindness to and love for her.
Fatimah Ma'soomah was growing under the shelter of her father and dear mother and was day by day learning new things from both of them. If the father of Fatemah was the Imam of the Muslims and was matchless in his piety and chastity, then her mother was also pious and faithful who had accomplished her essential studies of Islam in the school of the wife of Imam Ja'far Sadiq (A.S.). In those days she was the most intelligent amongst all women and it was for reason that the mother of Imam Kadhim (Hamideh) asked him to propose and marry her.
Hazrat Fatimah Ma'soomah took advantage of studying in the presence of her father, brother and pious mother. All her young life was full of Islamic education. Every Friday Muslims would come to Medina with their religious questions. After getting their questions answered by Imam Kadhim (A.S.), they would return to their town. Incidentally, once Imam Kadhim was away and Imam Ridha (A.S.) was also not around. The Muslims without getting their question answered were returning home very sad.
Fatimah Ma'soomah noticed the sadness and took the papers from them and answered their questions. The Muslims became happy and left. On the outskirts of Medina they met Imam Kadhim (A.S.) and they informed him of all that had transpired in his house. The Imam asked to read his daughter's answers and after reading expressed his happiness, praised her and in a short sentence said, "May her father be sacrificed for her."
The beginning of her grief and the martyrdom of her father
At that time, the Prophet's offspring were tortured by the governors and the kings, especially Imam Kadhim (A.S.) who was also being continuously suffered at the hands of the cruel Khalifas. Fatimah Ma'soomah's heart hurt to see her father in discomfort and pain. She was grieved and very sad and it was only her brother, Imam Ridha (A.S.) who calmed and comforted her and her other family members.During the time of the 7th Imam, till his death, he saw the reign of 5 Khalifas whose names were Abul Abbas Saffah, Mansur Dawaniqi, Hadi, Mahdi and Harun Rashid. Each of them tortured the Imam in their own way and not only the Imam but also the Alawites (followers of Imam Ali [A.S.]) were subjected to harsh cruelty and harassment, which was beyond human endurance.
Three years of Harun's caliphate had elapsed when Fatimah Ma'soomah was born. Harun was the most tyrannical of all the Khalifas that had gone before him in cruelty, bullying, looting, robbing the public treasury and trampling on the rights of people. He was a Caliph of the worldly desires and mammoth. Imam Kadhim (A.S.) could not bear to watch quietly the oppression of the Muslims and the plunder of the wealth of the Ummah. He started a movement and used different methods to oppose and revolt against the cruel government. Harun, aware of Imam Kadhim (A.S.) and his follower's opposition, also did as much as he could against them. He gave a lot of money to poets to write poetry against the offspring of the Prophets. The Alawites were either imprisoned or exiled and some were put in cages and tortured till they suffered martyrdom. Later he also used his strength and power to arrest Imam Kadhim (A.S.).
After his arrest, till his death, Fatemah Ma'soomah (S.A.) could not meet her father. She, who was brought up and educated by her father, was now deprived of meeting her father and also getting the education. Her father's arrest saddened her. She was less than 10 years old at that time and was always in grief and parting from her father saddened her even more.
As for Imam Kadhim (A.S.) it was difficult for him to call or see his pure and pious children, Imam Ridha and Ma'soomah. The dark room of his prison became bright and scented with his prayers.
He changed his hard days into sweet ones by continuous prostration but whenever he remembered Fatimah Ma'soomah and her innocent sinless appearance, his heart throbbed and palpitated.
During the last years of Imam Musa Kadhim (A.S.), he was transferred from one prison to another, for a year he was in the prison of Isa bin Jaf'ar the governor of Basra. Isa bin Jaf'ar became affected by the great qualities of the high leadership of Muslims that he had no alternative but to persuade the officer of the prison to be lenient to the Imam.
After that, Harun gave the order for Imam to be taken to Baghdad. First he was in the prison of Fadhl bin Rabi. Then Fadhl bin Rabi transferred him to the prison of Sindi bin Shahik.
This shifting and transferring continued and every time Harun would tell all the jailers to kill Imam. Nobody was ever ready to think about that until Sindi bin Shahik complied with the order of Harun to poison the Imam.
Harun definitely knew that the result would be dangerous if the people found out that the Imam was killed by him, so before the martyrdom of Imam he took a group of leading personalities to give witness that the dear Imam was so sick that it was possible he would die and that there was no intention of anyone to kill the Imam. But Imam was also clever, and before Harun could say anything. Imam himself told the group who were near to him that "I have been poisoned by nine pieces of dates. Tomorrow my body will turn green and I will leave the world the day after tomorrow".
And exactly two days later, on the 25th of Rajab 183 (A.H.) as the Imam had predicted the day of his martyrdom had come. The Imam went to join the soul of his great grandfathers. When the Muslims heard about the martyrdom of the Imam, they were grief stricken, and with mourning clothes and tears in their eyes, they went into mourning. They loved the Imam and had sworn allegiance to Him and now they had lost him. Nothing could console them on the loss of this noble Imam. Also amongst them was a ten year old girl, Fatimah Ma'soomah (S.A.) who was engrossed in grief.
She sat and waited in hope for years that one day the door of the house would open and her father would enter and hug her. But finally her little heart accepted this grief as she had no choice but to be patient.
The journey of her brother to Merv
Merv is the name of a city in Khurasaan. After Imam Kadhim's death, Imam Ridha (A.S.) assured the office of the Imamate. He was 35 years old. He was now the protector of Islamic Ummah and the guide of the Muslims. He was the only successor who was given this responsibility by his father Imam Musa Kadhim (A.S.). He was also the guardian of his children after his death.The oppression and the cruelty of Harun's rule went on but Imam Ridha (A.S.) continued with the responsibility of carrying out divine duties and went on spreading the word of God and the rights without any fear. He was always busy and never rested until he reached his aim.
Harun could not bear to watch Imam becoming so popular and his followers adoring him but he could not openly show his enmity or do anything to stop the Imam.
Finally in 193 (A.H.), Harun became sick and died. By his death the Muslims were relieved of one of the most evil oppressor and his tyranny.
After Harun, his brother Amin became the Caliph. He ruled for only 4 years, as there was bitter fighting between Amin and his brother for the Caliphate. This led to bloodshed and Amin was subsequently killed in the year 198 (A.H.), after which Mamun became the ruler.
It was during this time when the 2 brothers were fighting that Imam Ridha (A.S.) made the most use of this opportunity to spread the word of God and guide the Muslim Ummah.
The Abbasid government at this time was busy fighting amongst themselves for the kingdom, so there were fewer hardships for the Imam's family.
Mamun with his trickery came to power. He was not a Caliph who was just but someone who had fooled his people to get the power. This deceiving continued and to show that he was not only a wise king but also a man who encouraged intellectual and scientific education. He invited scholars, learned men, organized meetings, and seminars. So on one side he supported the scholars and on the other side, to attract the many Muslims, he openly showed the love he had for Ahlul bayt, started praising Imam Ali and cursing Muawiyah. This was a concerted effort to trick the Shias that he also was interested in the spread of Islam through the region. His supporters were not happy with his strategy but Mamun knew that if his enemies and the Shias would get together then he would be overthrown so he had to take first the Shias into his confidence and to do this he devised a plan to offer Imam Ridha (A.S.) to be the successor after him. This was to win confidence from both the enemies and the Shias.
So Mamun started writing letters upon letters to Imam Ridha (A.S.) to become his successor. But despite all the forces of Mamun it did not bear fruit as Imam Ridha refused to take their responsibility, which would be harmful for Muslims, so he bluntly refused. But Mamun was not going to give up so easily when he realized that his plan was not working he sent a man called Raja bin Dhahhak to Medina in 200 (A.H.) with an order to bring Imam to Merv (later called Toos and now Mashad). This was at that time the seat of his empire and he hoped the Imam would agree to be the governor of this city.
On receiving the information the Imam visited the grave of the Prophet and the Imams (buried in the Jannat-ul-Baqi) and said goodbye to his children, brothers and sisters including Fatimah Ma'soomah and left Madina for Merv. There was a sad atmosphere as the whole family was unwilling to see their protector and guide leave them but had no choice.
For Fatimah Ma'soomah this separation was very difficult as after the passing away of her father, the 7th Imam she was continuously under the guardianship of her brother Imam Ridha (A.S.). Now he had to leave Madina and for her the happy days were over.
Mamun had devised a plan for the Imam's journey. He had made sure that on Imam's route to Merv the Imam's caravan should not pass the two towns of Shias, which were Kufa and Qum. He was afraid that if the Imam passed these places there could be a revolution and he would be overthrown.
He also knew that the Shias of Kufa and Qum had a great love for the offspring of the Prophet. So the Imam should under no circumstances take this route.
The Muslim population however made all arrangements for the Imam to welcome on the route he was supposed to pass and took full advantage of the Imam's presence when the caravan stopped.
The whole route of Iran was decorated and he was warmly welcomed. One of the towns on the route to Iran was Neshapur. When the people of Neshapur heard that the Imam was coming they gathered and were anxious to learn something from the Imam. When Imam camped, the people gathered at his camp and asked Imam to teach them something and the Imam agreed. He told them a Hadith of the Prophet (S.A.W.). He said, LA ILAHA ILLALLAH is a strong fort and whosoever enters the fort will be saved from the fire of Hell. Then the Imam moved a few steps forward and continued with the Hadith and addressing, the crowd said "but there are conditions to it and I am one of those conditions". Imam was actually emphasizing the importance of Imamate by this Hadith, and teaching them that only belief in Allah is not sufficient for the passage to heaven.
After a few days in Neshapur, Imam went on with his journey to Merv. Mamun again requested the Imam to be his successor but Imam as before refused. This arrangement between Mamun and Imam continued for two months and with Mamun's force Imam had no choice. So on the 7th of Ramadhan 201 (A.H.) tearfully and sadly he agreed but with a condition that he would not involve himself into day to day deliberation of the government.
The migration of the Imam's sister Ma'soomah (S.A.) from Madina to Merv
One year had passed since the 8th Imam had left for Merv. All the Prophets family members living in Medina yearned and were eager for his return.It was already a year now that they had not seen their dear Imam and their hearts only desired and yearned to see the Imam's face. But Fatimah Ma'soomah had waited long enough and now her patience was running out and like the other family members she could only get peace if she met her brother.
During that time Imam Ridha (A.S.) wrote a letter to his sister Fatimah Ma'soomah and sent it to Medina with one of his slave. He ordered the slave not to stop anywhere till he reached Medina and gave him proper instructions and the proper address so the slave could find the house without asking anyone.
The slave arrived with the letter as fast as he could, and in Medina he immediately delivered to Fatimah Ma'soomah. What were the contents of the letter nobody knew, but the Imam's family became more grieved and yearned more for the Imam. Fatimah Ma'soomah, her brother and other family members decided to go to Merv to visit the Imam. They started preparations for their journey and taking water and minimum provisions decided to leave the city of the messenger of Allah (that is Medina) for Merv. Amongst all the people, Fatimah Ma'soomah was the most excited. That dear Lady with her five brothers whose names were Fadhl, Ja'far, Ha'adi, Qasim and Zayd and their brothers' children and servants and slave girls were all part of this journey.
This caravan of the lovers of Imam Ridha (A.S. started their journey and apart from waiting for prayers, meals and rest they never stopped. They passed hills, mountains, and deserts and day by day went further away from Medina. This difficult journey through the deserts was so arduous that not only them but also the strong camels were tired and they still had to go a long way to Merv. But their eagerness and their hope of reaching the Imam urged them to move forward.
In those days there was a lot of looting of the caravans. These thieves would take away all belongings and even the camels. If they did not find anything, they would kill the people. This frightened them a lot as they did not want their journey to break or for anything to happen to stop them from going forward.
This thought frightened Fatemah Ma'soomah but putting trust to Allah, they carried forward and gradually progressed towards their goal. Now the distance to Iran was becoming closer. The difficulties of the journey affected Bibi Ma'soomah a lot. For this young woman also there was a lot of suffering. But despite all this the thought of meeting her brother was worth all the pain. She was ready to go through this a hundred times to get this reward. On her journey she remembered the face of her brother and the good and difficult times they had together and now she was happy that in a few days she would look at his handsome face again.
Finally, the difficult part of the journey ended and the caravan reached Iraq. Before reaching Merv they passed through many villages where they would rest and then proceed, finally they reached. The caravan reached Sawa (name of a city in Iraq) and it was here that Fatimah Ma'soomah became very sick. She was so sick that she refused to continue with the journey. The long journey from Medina to Sawa had weakened her but this sickness made her even weaker. With this condition, she was worried. Would she be able to go forward? And would she now be able to see her brother? These were questions that the daughter of Imam Kadhim (A.S.) often asked herself when she saw her condition. She made a decision now to proceed to Qum and inquired from people the distance to Qum. They replied 10 miles. Hearing that the distance was not too much they decide to proceed.
In those days Qum was a place, which offered sanctuary and peace for the family of the Prophet. The news of Fatimah Ma'soomah's arrival from Sawa and her sickness reached Qum.
The people of Qum who had strong unity decided to go to receive Fatimah Ma'soomah and to bring her to Qum. A person called Musa ibn Khazraj undertook this task of going and inviting the daughter of seventh Imam to Qum and requesting her to stay with them in Qum and Fatemah Ma'soomah agreed to the request and the caravan left from Sawa to Qum. Musa ibn Kharaj himself held the camel's reins and led this noble woman with pride and respect to the people of Qum who were eagerly waiting her arrival.
Sickness and the death of the daughter of Imam Kadhim (A.S.)
Fatemah Ma'soomah and her companions finally entered the town of Qum on 23rd Rabi ul-Awwal 201 (A.H.) where they were very warmly welcome by the people of the town. The people of Qum were elated to have the daughter of the seventh Imam among them. Musa ibn Khazraj was a rich man with a noble status. He had also a big home and offered Fatemah Ma'soomah to stay at his home and taking the reins led the caravan to his house, excited and happy to be a good host for his guest. He started arranging for all their requirements. Fatemah Ma'soomah chose a place for herself in which to pray and invoke the Almighty Allah. She prayed for her health and the problems she had faced and to ask God for everything she wanted. She wanted help from God only. The place to-date still exists and is known as "BAYT-UN-NOOR". The sickness of Imam Kadhim's daughter, made her host and companions and the people of Qum very sad. They left no stone unturned and did their best for her health but her health deteriorated day by day. Her sickness spread in the whole body and finally on the 10th of Rabi ul-Akher this noble lady with tears in her eyes at the thought of her brother, left this perishable world. The people of Qum mourned the affliction of this injured lady. They all sat in mourning.
Fatimah Ma'soomah's burial rites
The Muslims and the well wishers of Ahlul-bayt respectfully washed the holy body of Hadhrat Ma'soomah and shrouded her, and when the burial time arrived the As'ari nobles decide to bury her at a special place and not at the common cemetery. This was unusually a respect for the noble lady who was the daughter of Imam Kadhim (A.S).Musa ibn Khazraj also undertook this noble task. He had a big garden in an area called Babulan. He donated the place for Bibi Ma'soomah to be buried. All the other preparations were ready. Now the question was who would bury her? This talk was going on when finally they concluded that an old man called Qadir be appointed for this job. Qadir was summoned to give the last funeral rites, but before he could come, two-veiled person on the horse (contrary to the prevailing customs) suddenly appeared and went near the burial place. They dismounted, led the prayer of mayyit and with respect laid her body to rest then left. The funeral ceremony was over and the town of Qum decided to build a Mausoleum for the Imam's dear daughter. Musa ibn Khazraj donated the whole garden now as a burial ground for the Muslim and surrounding boundaries for the followers of Ali (A.S).
The Mausoleum of Fatimah Ma'soomah since its inception
The people of Qum made a mausoleum of straw structure, which was intended to be given the utmost respect and importance for this lady, the daughter and the sister of the Imam. After 50 years, the daughter of Imam Jawad called Zainab, instructed for first dome to be built. Then the making of the whole Haram was undertaken by the well wishers and the followers of the Ahlul-bayt. After a few years of the passing away of Fatemah Ma'soomah other children of Imam were also buried here. Hence, this place gained a lot of respect and importance, as now there were many children of Imams buried here. And we find in history that this noble place brought blessing for people and offered sanctuary to them, whoever would ask anything from this lady and the sick would be cured. These miracles still take place at this holy place. Imam Sadiq (A.S.) has said: Our followers who ask for Bibi Ma'soomah's intercession will go to heaven. The importance and respect for this place grows day by day and because of this it has become a busy center. Also more and more Muslims are finding out about this place, because of the blessing of this Noble Lady there have sprung many fountains of learning in Qum and many learned people became religious scholars here.Even Imam Khomeini, the great scholar and the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran frequently reminded that he also lived in Qum and received his education with the blessing and sanctity of the Haram of this Noble Lady. He raised the flag of Islam and started the revolution from this place. This Haram shines like diamond in the town. People come from all over the world to visit and pay respects to this Noble Lady. This is just to show their deep love and attachment for this Noble Lady and family of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.).
Three sayings of Fatimah Ma'soomah by three Imams
  • Imam Sadiq (A.S.) said: soon a lady by the name Fatimah from my family will be buried in Qum. Heaven becomes obligatory on one who visits her.
  • Imam Radha (A.S.) said: One who visits her will be granted Heaven.
  • Imam Jawad (A.S.) said: that one who visits my Aunt in Qum will be granted heaven.

A View at Hazrat Fatima Ma'asumah's a.s Life

The people of Almadeenal Munawwara were expecting a birth of a female child of the prophet’s household, and especially the family of Imam Al-Kaadhum “a.s” who also were expecting the blessed coming of this child.

Najma, the spouse of Imam Al-Kaadhum “a.s.”, was spending the night and the day with the hope of giving birth, while the house experiences and calls out for happiness and joyfulness.

And lastly at the beginning of Thul-Kiada month 173 A.H., the days of the expectation had finished, while Allah “s.w.” provided Al-Imam Al-kaadhum “a.s” with a blessed and honoured female birth.

Happiness overcame the community, while no one reached the happiness degree of Imam Al-kaadhum save Najma his wife, on whom the mercy of God “s.w.” descended, when she was provided with her second birth after twenty-five years of Ali’s birth, who was called as Ar-Ridha “a.s.” and whose birth was in the same month Thul-Kiada in the year 148A.H. Najma became extremely happy for him, hence Allah “s.w.” favored her and Al-Imam Al-Kaadhum “a.s.” by giving them a girl who would be the sister of Ar-Ridha “a.s.”.

And due to the close relationship between Imam Al-Kadhum and his grandmother, Fatima Al-Zahra, he called his darling daughter Fatima, whom then was known as Al-Ma'sooma ie “the infallible” for her devoutness and saintliness and she imitated her father in his infallibility and abstained herself from any sin or evil.

The name of Fatima has its particular affection for that which tells of the sweet and bitter memories about the veracious immaculate Fatima “Faimatil –Zahra” “a.s.”, and whenever they called one of their females Fatima, she will gain a particular estimation of dignity, and welfare because of her similarity with the name of the Prophet’s daughter, hence the Lady Fatima Al-Ma'sooma was never out of this good attribute wherever she was.

Imam Kadhum “a.s.” did his best in order to protect and educate his darling daughter, while he left no effort to demonstrate his attention and affection towards her.

The Lady Al-Ma'sooma lived under the protection of her noble parents, from whom she attained the good virtues and qualities, while her father was an infallible Imam, and whom no one equals in his virtues and piety whereas her mother is “Najma”, a virtuous, faithful woman, and was educated at the school of Imam As-Saadiq’s wife, and who was known by piety during that period. Thus Hameeda, mother of Imam Kaadhum “a.s.” advised her son Al-Kadhum “a.s.” to marry Najma.

The Lady Ma'sooma got benefit everyday at hands of her infallible father and pother “a.s.”, and her educated pious mother, till she attained a high level in knowledge and virtue while she became aware of many kinds of Islamic knowledge and matters during her youth.

One day a company of Shia' came to Al- Madeena in order to lay their religious questions at Imam Al- Kaadhum “a.s.”, and to take knowledge from its original springs, but Imam Al-Kaadhum and Imam Ar-Ridha “a.s.” were travelling out of Al-Madeen, and so they became grieved because they did not find the trustee of Allah who can solve their inquiries so they were obliged to think of returning back.

When the lady Ma'sooma “a.s.” saw their sadness she took their question which were written and answered them.

Then the group’s grief was changed into extreme happiness, since they returned back home with their solved inquiries prosperously. When they returned, they met Imam Al-Kaadhum “a.s.” and they told him about what had happened for them and when he saw his daughter’s answer on those questions he recommened his daughter piefly saying “May her father be sacrificed for her”.

The rulers of that age were harming and oppressing the prophet’s progeny, and especially Imam Al-Kaadhum “a.s.” who faced so much of their injustice, pain, and ordeal. These pains and ordeals effected the pure heart of the lady Ma'sooma “a.s.”, while her pother Imam Ar-Ridha “a.s.” was th single consolatory of her and her family.

Imam Al-Kadhum’s life coincideded with the period of five opressive Abbasid rulers. They are Abul-Abbas As-Saffah, Al-Mansoor Ad-Dawaaniki, Al-Haadi, Al-Mehdi, and Ar-Rasheed, Each one of these oppressors tested Imam Al-Kaadhum “a.s.”, and all the pious people of the Alawids, various torments and tortures.

When the Lady Masooma was given birth, three years of passed from the Abbasid Haroun’s Caliphate who had the initiative in the fields of injustice, violence, and spoliation of the Muslims’ wealth and who was attached to the whim, and fond of the present life.

Imam Al-Kaadhum “a.s.” could not keep silent in front of the injustice of Haroun and his treason of Islam and the Islamic nation for the saying of the Messenger of God:

“If the innovations appeared, it is an obligation on the scholar to reveal his knowledge, other wise, may Allah’s malediction be upon him.”

Imam Al-Kaddhum began to forbid the indecency, and stood against Haroun’s policy which was devastating the religion.

And because Haroun knew the family of Ali’s extremity and in particular Imam Al-Kaadhum in facing the tyrants and condemning their activities – he exhausted all the tools in order to suppress their voices spent a great amount of Muslims money on the poets in order to offend them.

He was imprisoning the Alawids or banishing them and killing the others after exercising much torture towards them in prison.

And when his dictatorial government was established over the Islamic states, he ordered to arrest Imam Al-Kaadum “a.s.”, and imprison him.

So Fatimal- Ma'sooma “a.s.” was deprived of her father, and of being benefited from his pure source of knowledge, and that was at the latest days of his life, so she felt great sadness for her father’s loss. Her age was suffering intensely from the deprivation of her father, and was crying for a long time over him. It was also difficult for Imam Al-Kaadhum “a.s.” to be separated from his devoted sons, like Imam Ar-Ridha “a.s.”, and the Lady Ma'sooma.

Imam Al-Kaadhum was altering the darkness of the jail into light and pightness by praising Allah “s.a.”, and changing those difficult days into pleasant ones by the long glorification of Allah. But his heart was beating in prison, whenever he remembered his daughter Al- Ma'sooma, and he yearned for her meeting.

During the last two years of his age, Imam Al-Kaadhum “a.s.” was carried from a prison to another one. So he “a.s.” remained one year in the jail of Isa bin Jafar, the ruler of Basra. The guard of the prison was influenced by his good manners so that he retired from guarding prison. Afterwards, Al-Kaadhum “a.s.” was conveyed from Basra to Bahgdad according to Haroun’s order and was imprisoned at the jail of Al-Fadhl bin Rabie then that of Al-Fadhl bin Isa, and finally he was carried to the prison of As-Sindi bin Shahik.

The reason of carrying him among these prisons was that Haroun was ordering the jailor to kill Imam, but no one tried to, neither could, perform this repulsive action until Al-Sindi bin Shahik poisoned him, fulfilling Haroun’s order. Haroun knew that if people knew about Imam’s murder at his hands, he would undergo hard results. So cunningly he planed to invite a group of the Shi’as, before Imam’s martyrdom, so that they could see that Imam was ill, and might die because of this illness, and so his death would not be due to the murder of any person.

But Imam’s watchfulness and awareness of the outcomes exposed Haroun. Despite the intensity of the effect of poison in his honoured body, he told those surrounding him:

“This man has poisoned me with nine dates so my body will be turned green tomorrow, and I will die the day after it.”

And finally after two days of Imam’s speech, Imam Al-Kaadhum “a.s.” left the present life on the twenty-fiffh of Rajab month in 183 A.H. poisoned and martyred. So Imam from the Shi’as, Imams followed his immaculate fathers.

When the Shi’as heard of the news of their Imam’s martyrdom, they wore the dress of sadness and performed the funeral ceremonies with tearful eyes since they lost their leader whom they loved greatly with their full existence, and nothing can soothe their hearts’ grief, and among them, is the one whose tear could not be alleviated, Al-Ma'sooma who was still young. She was grieved at the news of her father’s martyrdom, since she had been waiting for many years expecting her father’s return one day to empace her. But now she should be patient over the disaster of his loss and has to undergo grief and pain.

After Imam Al-Kadhum’s martyrdom, Imamhood shifted into his son Ali bin Mosa Ar-Ridha “a.s.” who was in the thirty-fifth of his honoured age. In addition to his Divine Imamhood and guidance of the Islamic nation, he was the lonely legatee of his father Al-Kaadhum “a.s.” who will take up on himself the responsibility of his father’s sons, pother sand sisters.

In spite of the continuity of the stress of Haroun’s government, Imam Ar-Ridha “a.s.” was engaged in his divinely duty without any fear or veneration. He never neglects a moment in spreading the right path and truth.

Nevertheless the situations never permitted Haroun to oppose Imam or show enmity towards him. Then Haroun diseased and died because of his illness in 193A.H. and Muslims got rid of one of extremely evil murderers. Then Al-Ameen took up the position of Caliphate but he rulled not more than four years in that the bloody events took place between him and his pother Al-Ma'moon over Caliphate. And finally, Al-Amin was killed at the hand of his pother and consequently Al-Mamoon ascended the position of Caliphate.

Imam Ar-Ridha “a.s.” took the apportunity of the rulers’ engagement in wars, so he could educate and teach his followers without any obstruction.

Because of the Abbasid’s conflict over controlling the government, they couldn’t have enough time to harm Imam Ar-Ridha “a.s.” and his Shiites.

But when the matter of government was established for Al-Ma'moon, he started to strengthen his regime supports by ways of seduction. Due to his craftiness and deception of the common lot he gathered the scholars around him and, established scholarly societies and he tried to show himself as an expert ruler, who liked knowledge and its holders.

On the other hand, in order to attain the Shi’as protection, he announced his love towards Ali the Master of the Faithful and was cursing Muawiya.

And because of the advancing extention of the Islamic countries and the existence of dissenters in all of their sides he was obliged to attain the shiites’ protection, so as to protect his Caliphate position. Otherwise, if the Shiites joined the rows of opponents the situation would be highly difficult. Therefore so as to deceive the Alawids and the shi’as, he determined to elect Imam Ar-Ridha “a.s.” as his crown prince.

And if Imam Ar-Ridha “a.s.” accepted the crawn prince position no doubt shi’as would restrain themselves from objecting to the government, of which their Imam is its crown prince.

Many letters in this field were exchanged between Al-Ma'moon and Imam Ar-Ridha “a.s.”. Imam Ar-Ridha “a.s.”, expressed his rejection of the tenure, while the Calipha was insisting on him to accept it.

The successive letters ping about nothing, while Imam “a.s.” frustrated the demonic plot of the Calipha through his vigilant position, and all his attempts were fruitless, and the Imam declared his refusal of Al-Ma'moon’s quest.

Yet Al-Ma'moon didn’t refrain himself from this affair, so, in order to achieve his goal, he sent “Rajae' bin Abi adh-Dhaak” to Al-Madeena in 200 A.H. to ping the Imam from Al-Madeena to Maro, which was the centre of his government.

Al-Ma'moon was hoping to gain Imam’s agreement to accept the tenure, (to be the crown prince). After he compelled and inforced Imam Ar-Raidha “a.s.” in order to leave Al-Madeen, he (Imam) started to visit the graves of his grandfathers four Imams in Al-Baqie; Then he said farewell to his sons, pothers, and sisters, among whom was his honest sister the Lady Fatima Al-Ma'sooma “a.s.”, and left towards Maro.

With great grief and sadness, Imam “a.s.” was seen off by his family and relatives, so they returned back to their houses, sorrowfully and gloomily, since they lost the most dearest shelter to them.

With the separation of Imam “a.s.” Al-Ridha the moments of happiness in the life of Fatima Al-Ma'sooma came to an end for she found bless and kindness, after the martyrdom of her father Al-Imam Al-Kaadhum, “a.s.”, under the shadow of her darling pother Ar-Ridha “a.s.”, who then travelled, reluctantly and the separation of this kind pother is highly difficult upon all the family members of Imam Al-kadhum “a.s.”, and more especially on the Lady Al-Ma'sooma “a.s.”.

Al-Ma'moon was planning that the way of Imam Ar-Ridha “a.s.” must never be through the towns dwelt by Shiites in particular Kufa and Qom, since might lead to the peoples’s revolution, rising-up and rebellion against Al-Ma’moon’s regime and his workers, so that the power of government may be lost.

The pight history of Kufa and Qom witnessed the love and loyality of their people towards the Prophet’s progeny which was clear for the Caliph; therefore he prevented Imam Ar-Ridha “a.s.” from passing through these Shiitic towns.

In spite of Al-Mamoon’s arrangement Muslims living in other cities along Imam’s movement have met the son of the Holy Prophet “s.” with an incomparable hospitality and welcome and whenever he came to their cities, they were taking from his much knowledge, while in some Iranian cities people have met the son of the messenger of God “s.” in a highly exceptional and distinguished manner so that all the population gathered in surrounding Imam’s riding camel and benefited from his honourable presence.

Nishabour was one of these cities. When its people knew about Imam’s arrival towards their houses, they went out of their houses and gathered around his caravan and surrounded around his camel in order to obtain some knowledge from its origin. They said: “O, the son of the Prophet we like to benefit from your knowdedge and listen to your speech”.

Imam “a.s.” responded to their desire and recited the Hadith of the golden chain “silsilatith-Thahab”, which he “a.s.” narrated from his father, from his fathers, from the Prophet that he said:

“Allah the Sublime and the Glorious surely says: The word “There is no god but Allah” is my fort and who ever entered within my fort would be safe from my punishment”, And after the caravan advanced some steps, Imam “a.s.” took out his honourable head from the holder and said: with its conditions and I am one of these conditions”. Imam “a.s.” meant: that to say that there is “no God but Allah” alone is not enough to enter Paradise, but the speaker should also believe in Imams of the Right” among whom is Imam Ar-Ridha “a.s.”, or He “a.s.” meant that, no one can reach the reality of monotheism unless by the way of Ahlil-Bayit (the Prophet’s progony) “a.s.” which is the single way in order to know Allah the Sublime.

After that long journey, Imam “a.s.” arrived to Maro, while Al-M’amoon met him, and insisted on him in order to accept the crown prince position but Imam “a.s.” was still refusing this quest. Thus the conflict lasted between the Imam and the Caliph about this issue for two monthes. And finally Imam “a.s.” was compelled to accept this position under Al-Mamoon’s threats. with great sadness and gloomy heart, he accepted the crown prince position on Ramadhan 201A.H. but he “a.s.” stipulated, that he should never interfere in any of the decisions of the government, and Al-Ma'moon responded to this condition.

A year passed after Imam Ar-Ridha left to “a.s.” Maro, while the prophet’s family were still in Al-Madeena, being deprived of their dearest person with whose nearness they were feeling kindness and bless. Thus they had got nothing which might soothe their thirst save viewing their infallible Imam “a.s.”. The lady Fatima Al-Ma'sooma “a.s.”, like her pothers and sisters, had to bear patiently, while her longing for her pother Ar-Ridha “a.s.” increased day by day.

Imam “a.s.” wrote to her aletter during these days and he “a.s.” sent this letter by the way of one of his servants to Al-Madeena Al-Munowara and he ordered him not to stop in the middle of the way in order to reach the letter for her as possible as he could. Likewise he told him about his father’s house where his sister Masoma lived so as not to ask anyone about Imam Kadhum’s house.

The delegate of Imam ‘a.s.” arrived to Holy Madeena, and handed the letter to the lady Al-Ma'sooma “a.s.” according to the command of Imam Ar-Ridha “a.s.”; and although we have not got any information about the contents of the letter, but, however, it increased the flame of yearing in his family members and relatives. Consequentily the lady Ma'sooma and some of Imam’s pothers and nephews decided to leave for Maro so as to catch up with Imam. Very quickly the provisions of journey were supplied and the caravan became ready to move. And after they took water and some provisions, they left Madeena for Maro. Fatima was with her five pothers in this journey. They were: Fadhl, Jafar, Haadi, Kaasim, and Zaid, with some of Masoma’s nephews and several servants and bond maids.

The loving caravan of Imam Ridhas “a.s.” moved towards Maro without stopping but for the necessary purposes,. like the prayer time, or getting rest or for the meal times; hence they left back the hills and deserts of Al-Hijaaz becoming faraway from the Messenger’s Town, day by day.

The trave - through Al-Hijaaz deserts was difficult so that even the camels became weak and could not move ahead; so how about travellers who had to go to Maro yet the glimpse of hope, and the meeting of Imam “a.s.” were illuminating in the hearts of caravan members and encouraged them to go on through the sands and storms of the desert, Within those days, the danger of the robbers, and high way robbers was threatening every traveller causing many troubles. whenever they attacked a caravan, no one would have a hope in surviving the journey. The least they act is to plunder the money, jewelleries and riding animals.

And in most cases they kill the members of a caravan so as to steal their possesions. The lady al-Ma'sooma “a.s.” and her escorts trusted in Allah the Sublime “s.w.”, and went on their journey, and day by day, they were approaching to wards their destination.

Days and nights passed and the caravan seeking Imam Ar-Ridha “a.s.” were covering Hijaz desert a and short distance remained for them to reach the land of Iran.

The troubles of travel bothered the lady Al-Ma'sooma Fatima “a.s.” seriousely. And although passing this difficult road was laborious on such a young lady, but she was ready to endure the multiple of these troubles, because of her great desire and longing for visiting her pother.

The pight face of Imam Ar-Ridha “a.s.” was always visualized for the Lady Al-Ma'soom Fatima “a.s.” throughout her journey, while she remembered the days that she spen in Al-Madeena; she was seeing that her eyes would be happy when she meets him, so she was very happy.

The serious division of this journey finished, and finally the caravan arrived the Iranian regions, but this caravan had to pass all the towns and villages one by one throughout this journey.

Finally the caravan arrived Sawa and there the Lady Al-Ma'sooma became seriously sick, to the extent that she could not go on in her movement.

Although this long tiring journey from Al-Madeena to Sawa caused her body to be weak but the stress of illness turned her body thin and her colour pale.

Is it possible then for the sister of Imam Ar-Ridha “a.s.” to continue her journey in order to visit her dear pother in Maro? Is it possible to regain her health so that she could see her pother?

These inquiries occupied the mind of the Lady Ma'sooma, and they increased her worry.

However the Lady Ma'sooma “a.s.” decided to go to Qom, while she asked her mates: How far is the distance to Qom?

They answered: “Ten leagues” So she ordered them to move towards Qom.

Qom was the shelter of Shia' during that period, despite that the sect of Shiism was not publically known in Iran. Because of the Arab Ashariya migration from Kufa to Qom, this town became a shi’ite town and all of its population were lovers of Ahlil-Bayit of the Messenger (The Prophet’s progeny).

Al-Ashariya had already migrated from Kufa to Qom because of the oppression of Umaids who exceeded the limit in their hostility toward the Prophet’s progeny and the Shiites of Ali.

So they built and established Qom and when people of Qom heard about the arrival of Ma'sooma “a.s.” to Sawa and knew about her illness, they decided to go to Sawa in order to meet the Lady Ma'sooma and to ask her to move towards Qom and to reside there. So they selected Mosa bin Khazraj, as a delegate in order to travel for daughter of Imam Al-Kaadhum “a.s.”. He travelled to Sawa, met her, and informed her about the desire of people of Qom, and their strong longing that she visits them. Then she responed to their quest and ordered the caravan to move towards Qom.

Proudly Musa bin Khazraj took up on himself leading the camel of the Lady Al-Ma'sooma, and led her towards Qom, which was waiting for the coming of Imam Ar-Ridha’s sister till the caravan arrived the beginning of Qom. 1

A- Imam Kadhum said: “Qom is the nest of Muhammad’s progeny, and the shelter of their followers and Shiites. Bihaaril – Annwaar vol. 57, 214.

B- As-Sadiq “a.s.” said: “Whenever you have been afflicted with a misfortune and stressness, you should resort to Qom as it is the shelter of the Fatimids, and the rest of the believers.” Bihaaril – Anwaar vol. 57, 214.

C- As-Sadiq “a.s.” said: “Kufa will be empty of the believers, while knowledge will subside from it just as a snake subsides into its burrow; then the knowledge appears in a town which is called Qom, and it will be the spring of knowledge and merit, so that no weak person in religion would be present even, the lonely women at the mountains, and that will be in a time near to emergency of Imam Mehdi. Thus Allah “a.s.” will elect Qom and its community authority “a.s.”, otherwise, the earth will sink with its inhabitants so no argument will remain on the earth: so knowledge will flow from it towards the various countries throughout the east and west. So the argument of Allah will be concluded on his creatures. So each one, on the earth, would have religion and knowledge. Bihaaril – Anwaar vol. 57, 213.

On the twenty-third of Rabieul-Awwal 201A.H., the caravan of the Lady Fatima Al-Ma'sooma “a.s.” arrived Qom and the people received her with great happiness, and were very glad that she entered their lands.

Musa bin Khazraj had much money and a wide house and so he accomodated her at home and took up on himself to take care of the lady Ma'sooma “a.s.” and her companions. He felt great happiness to serve the guests of Imam Ar-Ridha “a.s.” who came from the Messenger’s Madeena. Thus he prepared for them all what they need fastly.

Then Fatima Al-Ma'sooma took a temple for herself in the house of Musa bin Khazraj in order to invocate Allah, worship him, communicate with Him, to complain her pains to Him, and to intrust him with what was effected her, while this temple still remained till this day, and is called House of Light (Baytel Noor).

The disease of the daughter of Imam Al-Kaadhum “a.s.” worried her companions and the people of Qom so much, although they left nothing they could in order to treat her. Yet her state increased badly day after day, since the disease had already struck root in her body.

Then on the tenth of Rabie ith-thaani of the year 201 A.H. the Lady Ma'sooma “a.s.” died without seeing her pother, and the tears from her eyes and her heart’s grief had never been calm for his deprivation.

The inhabitants of Qom were afflicted by this misfortune and they performed the consolations with extreme sadness.

The women of the Shi’as and the friends of Ahlil-baiyt “a.s.” took up on themselves the vitual ablution of the Holy body of the Lady Ma'sooma “a.s.” and shroweded her.

When the time of the burial took place, the bigshot people from the Ashariam and their important men saw, that the pure body must be buried in a special place other than the common cemetry, and that was because of their great and high estimation towards the daughter of Imam Al-Kaadhum “a.s.”, since they never desire to bury her body besides the graves of common people.

Musa bin Khazraj the antecedent in this affair, specialized a vast orchard at a location named “Bablaan” on the coast of Qom river, “and that is the location of the current holy shrine” in order to bury the pure body, so all the arrangents are ready now for the burying, but who will be the appointed one, who shall take up on himself in order to bury the immaculate body?

The people present exchanged the views about this affair between them, and finally they decided to recommend this affair for a virtuous old man, who is called Kaadir, thus they sent a person in order to fetch him, but he didn’t find him, and suddenly two persons came from the river side, approached towards the burial location, and when they approached to the pure body location, they came down from their horses, perfomed the ritual praying; then they took upon themselves the burial arrangement and buried the pure body. Then they amounted their horses and moved far and far fastly, while the common people were astonished.

Thus the ceremony of the body burial finished in high estimation with the cry and sadness of the Shi'a, so Qom became the true shelter of Muhammad’s progeny, and the sanctuary of the daughter of Imam Musa Al-Kaadhum “a.s.”.

Respecting the Lady’s Shrine Musa bin Hkazraj intailed his orchard for the Muslims, in order that the followers of Ali “a.s.” could bury their deads surrounding the holy grave.

The population of Qom built a hut over the shrine of the Lady Ma'sooma “a.s.” using the strawmat, and after 50 years, and by the attention of the Lady Zainab the daughter of Imam Al-Jawaad “a.s.” the first dome was built over the holy grave of the Lady Ma'sooma, then the holy shrine was rebuilt by the lovers and the followers of Ahlil-Baiyet “a.s.”, then it was expanded till it became, in its present form.

Many years after Fatima Al- Ma'sooma’s death, many daughters of the Imams were buried close to the holy shrine of Al- Ma'sooma “a.s.”, which increased the importance of this clean and blessed ground.

The blooming shrine of the Lady Fatima al-Ma'sooma was a shelter of the Shia's throughout the history, and the pinger of the benefit and blessings for Qom population.

How many of the needy whose purposes are achieved, and how many of the ill people were cured by the way of the daughter of Ahlil-Bayit’s and she will take with the hands of her visitors towards the coast of rescue, “O, Fatima intercede for us in the paradise….”. and it was narrated from Imam As-Sadiq “a.s.” that he said: “She truly enters all of our shiites into paradise by her intercession.”

Throughout the later centuries many great scholars had educated at the closeness and beseach of this blessed grave, those jurisprudents were the spring of good and blessings throughout the Islamic world, and from them was the great scholar Imam sayyid Rohul-Lah Al-Mussawi Al-Khumaini, while all of those see that their prosperity was due to visiting this holy shrine of the Lady Ma'sooma “a.s.”, so they started their important projects and activities at the nearness of this holy shrine of the Lady Ma'sooma “a.s.” and this is Imam Khumaini, who started his blessed revolution, from the close of this grave .

Today this holy shrine of the Lady Ma'sooma “a.s.” is illuminating like the pight gem in the center of Qom. Everyday Caravans come from various regions of Iran, and the world to visit this holy shrine, and to declare their loyalty and love towards the Prophet of Islam and his progeny.

Peace be upon her at the day of her birth, the day of her death, and the day on which, she will be resurrected alive.

1- Sa'd bin Abdullah said:

“I asked Abal-Hassan Ar-Ridha “a.s.” about Fatima the daughter of Musa bin Jafar “a.s.” so he answered:

“who ever visited her, he would win paradise”. 2

2- The son of Ar-Ridha “a.s.” said:

“whoever visited the holy shrine of my aunt in Qom, he would gain paradise.” 3

3- As-Saadiq “a.s.” said:

“Allah “s.w.” surely has a holy house, which is Macca, and the Messenger of God surely had holy house, that is Al-Madeena, and the Prince of the believers Ali “a.s.” has a holy house, which is Kufa, while we a holy house and that is just Qom, in which a woman from my progeny shall be buried, who is called Fatima, and whoever visited her, he should be rewarded by winning paradise. 4

4- And from him it was also narrated that he said:

“The visit of Fatima Al-Ma'sooma equals the paradise.” 5

5- From Sa'ad, from Ali bin Musa Ar-Ridha “a.s.”, who said: “O, Sa'ad, do you have a grave?”

I said: I may be sacrificed for you, yes the grave of Fatima, the daughter of Musa bin Ja'far “a.s.”.

Thus Imam “a.s.” said: “Ok. Whoever visited her, knowing her stance, he should win the paradise, and you came on the grave, you should stand at her head direction towards kibla, and say thirty-four times “Allahu Akbar, thirty-three times subhan Allah and say “Al-Hamdulil-Lah thirty-three times, then you say:

Peace be upon Adam the Choice of Allah peace be upon Nuh, the Prophet of Allah, peace be upon Apahim the close lover of Allah, peace be upon Musa the Interlocutor of Allah, peace be upon Isa the soul fo Allah.

Peace be upon you O’ Messenger of Allah. Peace be upon you O’ the Choice of Allah; peace be upon you, O’ Muhammad the son of Abdul-Lah the end of the prophets; peace be upon you, O, the prince of the believers Ali bin Abi Taalib the successor of the Messenger of Allah; peace be upon you, o, Fatimatul-Zahra', the Lady of the women of the worlds; peace be upon you, O’the two grandsons of the prophet of Mercy and the chiefs of the youth of Paradise.

Peace be upon you, O’ Ali bin Al-Hussein, the chief of the worshippers, O’ pightness of the investigating eyes; peace be upon you, O’ Muhammad bin Ali, the explorer of the knowledge after the prophet; peace be upon you, O’ Ja'far bin Muhammad As-Saadiq the trustworthy, the reliable being; peace be upon you, O’ Musa bin Ja'far, the pure and purified; peace be upon you, O’ Musa bin Ja'far, the pure and purified, peace be upon you, O, Ali bin Musa Ar-Ridha, the pleased, the gratified; peace be upon you, O’ Muhammad bin Ali, the pious, peace be upon you, O’ Ali bin Muhammad the pure, the advising guardian, the trustworthy, peace be upon you; O’ Hassan bin Ali; peace be upon you, the successor after him; O’ Allah shower your blessings upon your the successor, and the vicegerent to Thy Messenger, and Thy decisive argument over your creatures. Peace be upon you, O’ the daughter of the Messenger of Allah; peace be upon you, O’ the daughter of Fatima and Khadeeja; peace be upon you, O’ the daughter of the prince of the believers, peace be upon you, O’ the daughter of Al-Hassan and Al-Hussein; peace be upon you, O’ the daughter of the vicegerent of Allah; peace be upon you, O’ the sister of the vicegerent of Allah; peace be upon you, O’ the aunt of the vicegerent of Allah; peace be upon you and Mercy of Allah and his blessings, O’ the daughter of Musa bin Ja'far; peace be upon you, may Allah familiarize between us and you in Paradise, and gather us to your company, and ping us towards your Prophet and water us with the golbet of your grandfather, by the hand of Ali bin Abi Taalib, peace be and blessing upon you.

O, Fatima intercede with us, as you have a great stance with Allah.

Allah, I ask Thee to make my ending happy, and not take away what you have given me. There is neither might nor power but with Allah the High, the Great. May you comply with our supplication and accept it with Thy Generosity, They Mercy, and Thy Bounteousness. Allah bless Muhammad, and His Pious and pure progeny and give them abundant peace! O, the most Merciful of the Merciful. 6
