 Golden Sayings & Speeches of Hazrat Bibi Fatima Tu Zahra a.s.
Asalamoalaka ya Hazrat Bibi Fatima Tu Zahra a.s.
  1. " O my Father! After your death I was subjected to such tortures and tyranny that if they had been inflicted on the Day , it would have turned into Night."
  2. The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) (said to Hadrat Fatima (A.S.): On the Day of Judgment, you shall intercede for the ladies and I shall intercede for the men; every person who has wept over the tragedy of Husain (A.S.), we shall take him by the hand and lead him into Paradise.
  3. O' Fatima! Every eye shall be weeping on the Day of Judgment except the eye which has shed tears over the tragedy of Husain (A.S.) for surely, that eye shall be laughing and shall be given the glad tidings of the bounties and comforts of Paradise.
  4. When Allah created Adam... (until he said) there was a brilliant girl from whom light was illuminating
    and on her head was a golden crown ornamented with diamonds; the like of whom Adam had never seen.
    Adam asked: 'My Lord who is this girl?'
    Allah said: 'Fatima Bint Muhammad.'
    Adam said: 'My Lord, who is her husband?'
    Allah said: 'O Gabriel, open the gate of the ruby palace;' when Gabriel did, Adam saw a dome of camphor
    and inside it was a golden bed equipped by a young man as beautiful as Yusef.'
    He then said: "This is her husband, Ali Ibn Abu Talib."
  5. Imam Al-Hassan Ibn Ali Al-Askari (a.s) reported that his Fathers quoted Jabir Ibn Abdullah as
    saying: "The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) said: 'When Allah created Adam and Eve, they strutted
    through paradise and said: 'Who are better than we?' At that moment they noticed an image of a
    girl like they had never seen before; from this girl came an illuminating light so bright that
    it almost blinded the eyes.
    They said: 'O Lord, what is this?'
    He answered: 'This is the image of Fatima, the mistress of your women descendants.'
    Adam asked: 'What is this crown on her head?'
    Allah said: 'Her husband Ali.'
    Adam then asked: 'What are her two earrings?'
    Allah replied: 'Her (two) sons, they were ordained in My ever-existent knowledge two thousand
    years before I created you."
  6.  Imam Ali (A.S.) that Fatima considered him homely and gloomy,
  7.  The least that can be said is that it does not consist with what has been mentioned regarding his handsome features: He had a splendid face,
  8. As if it was the full moon,
  9. His neck appeared like a silver jug,
  10. And he was cheerful,
  11. Whenever he smiled, his teeth appeared to be organized pearls.
  12. Fatima Zahra (a.s) answered her; the woman repeatedly came with questions for Fatima, and she (a.s) kindly answered her every time. One day the lady again approached Fatima (a.s) with another question from her mother and said to Fatima: 'I shall not inconvenience you (any more), daughter of Allah's Messenger.'
  13. Fatima replied: 'Ask me regarding anything which comes to your mind, because if a man had been hired to transport a heavy load to the top of a mountain for a reward of one thousand dinars, do you think it would bother him?' The woman said: 'NO'
  14. Fatima continued: 'My reward for (answering) every inquiry is more than that which fills (the space) between the ground and the Throne with pearls; thus, I should be more apt to answer your questions. Surely I heard my father say. When the scholars of our S hi it e (followers) are gathered (on the Day of Resurrection), they will be bestowed with garments of honor equal in quantity to their knowledge and struggle to guide Allah s worshippers, up to the point that anyone of them will be gifted with one million garments of light.' Then the caller of our Exalted and Glorified Lord will say:
  15. 'O you guardians of the orphans of Muhammad. (You) who inspire them when they are separated their fathers, who are their Imams; these are your pupils and the orphans whom you guarded and inspired, therefore bestow them with garments of knowledge in life. Thus, they will bestow each orphan with that which corresponds to the amount of knowledge he received from them (the scholars); up to the point that some orphans are bestowed with one million garments. Like-so, the orphans bestow those who learnt from them.' Then Allah, the Exalted said: 'Repeat upon these scholars, the guardians of the orphans, the bestowment and double and complete for them and for those who follow them.'
  16. Fatima (a.s) then added: Worshipper of Allah, surely a thread of those garments is better than that on which the sun rises."
  17. Yazid Ibn Abdulmalik (Nawfali?!) quoted his father, who quoted his grandfather as saying: "Once, I entered the house of Fatima (a.s), who was the first to greet me; she then said: 'What brings you here?'
  18. I said: 'I have come in search of blessing.' Fatima then said: 'My father (who was present,) said, 'He who greets him or me for three consecutive days, will be granted Paradise by Allah.'
  19. I said: 'While you are living?' She answered: 'yes, and after we are dead."
  20. Imam Ali (a.s) quoted Fatima as saying: 'The Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h) said: Fatima, praises you, will be forgiven by Allah; companion where ever in Paradise I may be.'
  21. Swaid Ibn Ghafla said: 'Once, Ali (a.s) was inflicted with hardship, so Fatima knocked on the Messenger of Allah's door, who said: 'I hear the movement of my beloved one near the Um Ayman get up and see!' Um Ayman opened the door and Fatima entered the house. The Prophet then said: 'You have come to us at a time that you have not previously come!'
  22. Fatima said: 'Messenger of Allah, 'what is the angels' food near our Lord?' The Messenger of Allah said: 'By Him Who holds my soul in His hand, fire has not been lit (in our house) for a whole month; yet, I will teach you five statements which Gabriel taught me.'
  23. She (a.s) said: 'Messenger of Allah, what are these five statements?' The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said: 'O Lord of the First and Last; O You Possessor of Might, and Strength; O You Who are Merciful with the poor; O You most Beneficent, most Merciful." (Note: It appears as if the fifth statement has been mistakenly erased.) Thereafter Fatima returned and Ali (a.s) saw her and exclaimed:
  24. "May my father and mother be your sacrifice, Fatima; what have you to tell me?"
  25. She said: "I went seeking worldly things, but have returned (with the goodness of) the hereafter!" Ali (a.s) then said: "Expect goodness, expect goodness!"
  26. Imam Sadiq (a.s) said:  "Once, Fatima approached Allah's Messenger with a problem. The Prophet listened to her problem and gave her a wrapped piece of material and said: 'Learn that which is written in it.' (When she opened it) she found written in it: 'He who believes in Allah and the Last Day, shall not harm his neighbor. He who believes in Allah and the Last Day, shall honor his guest. He who believes in Allah and the Last Day, shall say that which is useful or keep silent."
  27. The Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h) asked: 'What is best for women?' We did not know how to answer the Prophet, so Ali (a.s) asked Fatima about the Prophet's question. Fatima answered: 'It is best for them not to see men and not to let men see them.'
  28. Ali returned to Allah s Messenger and conveyed Fatima's answer to him. When the Prophet had heard the answer, he said:
  29. 'Surely she has spoken the truth, for she is part of me.'
  30. Fatima's arrival at the scene of the battle, coincided with the Prophet's inspection of his soldiers, to find out how many had been martyred and wounded. When he reached Hamza, he found him in an indescribable situation; the infidels had badly mutilated his body; they had cut off his fingers, hands, legs, nose, ears, and ruptured his abdomen to get his liver out. They had also cut off his sexual organ and left him in that horrible position.
    The scene of Hamza's defaced body brought sadness and pain to the Prophet's heart. The infidel had not abandoned any ugly method of mutilation, which they did not commit against the strong and steadfast supporter of Allah's Apostle, (Peace be upon him and Ahlul-Bayt). While the Prophet was deeply saddened by this infliction, his Aunt and Fatima were rushing towards the scene. As Soon as he noticed them, he covered Hamza's body with one of his garments. Safia and Fatima arrived and began crying and condemning the infidels for their crimes. They noticed that the Prophet's forehead was badly cut and that blood had become clotted on his face and beard; thus, Fatima Zahra started cleaning his face and said:
    "Allah's punishment will be severe on him who caused the Messenger's face to bleed."
  31. Ali poured water on the Prophet's face, but this did not stop the bleeding, so Fatima burnt some rope and put its ashes on the cut, which stopped the bleeding. Fatima spent these moments in sadness and great anxiety. She was a faithful and devoted daughter to her father.
  32. When Ali (A.S.) returned to Medina, he gave his sword to Fatima and said:
    "Take this sword Fatima; it surely proved itself to be most reliable today."
  33. The Prophet added: "Take it Fatima, for surely your husband has fully performed his duty; Allah killed the heroes of the Arabs through his hands." Fatima's help to her father does not mean that she worked as a nurse on the battlefield, despite the claim of some writers who consider this story as proof that Fatima was a battlefield nurse!!
  34. Imam Sadiq (A.S.) said: "The Messenger of Allah entered his house to find Aisha yelling at Fatima, saying: `By Allah, O Khadija's daughter, you feel that your mother was better than us; but what favor does she have above us? Is she not saved like us?'
  35. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) heard Aisha's shouting. When Fatima saw him, she began to cry; the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) then said: What makes you cry, O daughter of Muhammad?'
  36. Fatima said: 'Aisha degraded my mother, and this has caused me to cry.'  The Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H.) angrily said: `Hush, O Humaira (reddish woman)!! Surely Allah (Exalted is His Name) blessed this devoted and fertile woman; and Khadija (may Allah bless her soul) gave birth to my children, Al-Tahir (Abdullah) who was purified, A1-Qasim, Ruqayya, Um Kulthum, and Zainab; but Allah has created you with a sterile womb so you do not give birth to any children."
  37. Hazrat  Ali Ibn Al-Hussain Ibn Ali (a.s) said: "Once a blind man asked for permission to enter Fatima's house, but she kept a veil between them. The Messenger of Allah noticed her actions and asked: 'Why did you keep a veil between you when he can not see you?'
  38. Fatima (a.s) answered: Messenger of Allah, it is true that he can not see me, but I can see him and he can smell my fragrance.' At this, the Prophet (p.b.u.h) said: 'I bear witness that you are part of me."
  39. In addition to these narrations, many prayers and supplications have been reported on Lady Fatima's account; among them is the famous supplication for the relief of fever and headaches. This supplication is mentioned below as an example of Fatima's prayers. Fatima (a.s) taught the following supplication to Salman Al-Farsi (may Allah be pleased with him) and said to him: "If it pleases you not to be inflicted with fever as long as you live in this world, then read these words, which my father, Muhammad, taught me and I say every morning and evening:
  40. In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, Most Merciful
  41. In the Name of Allah the light;
  42. In the Name of Allah the light of light;
  43. In the Name of Allah, light upon light;
  44. In the Name of Allah, the planner of affairs;
  45. In the Name of Allah, Who created light from light; and
  46. Revealed light upon the Turr;
  47. By a decree inscribed;
  48. In a scroll unfolded,
  49. According to a decree fore-ordained;
  50. Unto a Learned Prophet;
  51. Praise be to Allah, Who is Known with Might;
  52. Whose Glory is established;
  53. Who is praised during times of prosperity and infliction;
  54. And may Allah s grace be upon our Master,
  55. Muhammad;And his purified progeny. Salman later said: "By Allah, I have taught this supplication to more than a thousand souls in Mecca and Medina who were inflicted with fever, and they were all relieved by the will of Allah."
  56. Allah's Messenger (P.b.u.h) taught Fatima the following supplication:
  57. 'O Allah, Our Lord and the Lord of Everything;
  58. (He) Who revealed Tawrat, Injeel and Furqan (Quran);
  59. (He) Who causes the seed-grain and the date-stone to split and sprout;
  60. I seek refuge in You from every beast that you shall seize by its forelock
  61. Surely You are the First, where nothing has succeeded (You);
  62. And the last, where nothing shall come after (You);
  63. You are the Evident, there is nothing more Manifest than You;
  64. And the Eminent, there is nothing more Eminent than You;
  65. Send your grace upon Muhammad and his Ahlul-Bayt.
  66. May Peace be upon them;
  67. And settle my debts for me;
  68. Make me free from poverty,
  69. And decree easy for me all my affairs.
  70. O You! Most Merciful of all.
  71. As days passed, Fatima's life became more beautiful and splendid, for she lived in an atmosphere of sanctity and chaste, surrounded by modesty and humbleness. She (a.s) aided her husband in his worldly and religious affairs, and cooperated with him in achieving his exalted goals. This harmony in their life was perfected by the ideological tranquility they both enjoyed, and the respect and glorification they held for each other. Fatima (a.s) realized the great rank her husband enjoyed. She respected him in the best manner as a Muslim woman should respect her Imam-for she recognized that Ali (a.s) was:
  72. The dearest person to Allah's Messenger;
  73. The holder of the great guardianship;
  74. The possessor of absolute Imamate;
  75. The Prophet's brother, successor and heir;
  76. The possessor of excellent talents;
  77. His long-standing service to Islam was also apparent to everyone.
  78. Likewise, Ali (a.s) respected Fatima, not only because she was his wife, but also because she was:
  79. The most beloved to Allah's Messenger;
  80. The mistress of all women;
  81. And her sanctity was part of the Prophet's.
  82. Indeed, Fatima enjoyed noble traits which had any woman held even one of them, she would be worthy of respect and exaltation.
  83. "It was narrated that when she (Fatima) learnt about her marriage and that her dowry was a small number of dirhams, she said:
  84. "O Messenger of Allah, lay-girls take money for dowries; what is the difference between me and them (if my dowry was to be money too)?
  85. I kindly ask you to give it back and supplicate to Allah, the Exalted, to make my dowry the right to intercede for the sinners among Muslims (on the Day of Rising).' It was then that Gabriel descended with a label on which the following statement was written:
  86. Allah ordained Fatima Zahra s dowry to be intercedence for the sinners among Muslims.' When Fatima (a.s) was on her deathbed, she asked that the label be put on her chest under the coffin. Thus, it was done so.
  87. Fatima said: "When I am raised on the Day of Resurrection, I will present this label with my hand to intercede for the sinners from among my Father's nation."
  88. It is apparent that the narration mentioned above illustrates the greatness, honor, and excellence Lady Fatima enjoyed. The Messenger's supplication was answered, so Fatima will present the label on the day when it is most needed. Nasfi said:
  89. "Fatima (may Allah be pleased with her) asked the Prophet (p.b.u.h) that her dowry would be intercedence for his nation on the day of Resurrection. So when she passes the path, she will ask for her dowry."
  90. Therefore, was it not possible for Fatima's wedding to have been celebrated in the exalted heavens, and attended by the nearest angels to Allah, the Exalted, as Prophetic traditions state?! Indeed, this is what happened in tribute to Fatima, her Father, her husband, and her future children who are the authorities of Allah on His creatures. The celebration took place in the fourth Heaven near Al-Bait Al-Ma'mour (the constantly attended house of Allah). It was a unique event the like of which the universe had never encountered before. Angels from all the Heavens gathered in the fourth Heaven and erected the Minbar of Honor, which is made of light. Then Allah, The Almighty, revealed to one of His angels, Rahil, to ascend the Minber and praise and glorify His names as He deserves. Rahil, who was the most eloquent of all angels, did what his Lord revealed to him and said: "Praise be to Allah, since sempiternity of the first (creatures); He who is ever-lasting (even) after the cessation of all beings; We praise Him for making us spiritual angels;, who are submitting to His Godship, and for making us grateful fo Him for His benevolence on us. He safeguarded us from craving for lusts; and made our only pleasure and enjoyment to glorify and exalt Him. He Who extended His Mercy (upon everything); and bestowed His benevolence (upon everyone). Exalted is His Name from the polytheism of polytheists of the dwellers of Earth, And Elevated by His Creatures from the fabrications of the atheists." Allah, The Omnipotent King chose the one who was bestowed with special Divine Honor, and the worshipper of His Greatness, for His worshipper, the Mistress of women and the daughter of the best of prophets, the Master of all messengers and the Imam of the pious; so He brought into relations the Prophet with a man from his kin. One who is his believing companion, and was prompt in answering his call-Ali, the devout, with Fatima the splendid and the daughter of the Messenger."
  91. Then Gabriel added the following words, which were from Allah, the Exalted: "Praise is My garment Greatness is My Magnificence , All the creatures are My slaves men and women. I give Fatima, My Worshipper in marriage to Ali, My chosen worshipper. So bear witness O My angels."
  92. Reported that Jabir Ibn Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: "Um Ayman came to the Prophet (p.b.u.h) crying; the Prophet asked her why she was crying? She replied: 'A man from the Ansar just informed me that his daughter has just been married, and that sprinkled sweets and almonds on her.
  93. Thus, this reminded me that when Fatima married Ali, you did not sprinkle anything on her.'
  94. There-upon the Prophet said: "By Allah Who sent me with honor, and gifted me with the Messengership; when Allah gave Fatima to Ali in marriage, He ordered the nearest angels to surround the Throne-including Gabriel, Michael and Israfil. He also commanded birds to sing and ordered the tree of Tuba to sprinkle them with fresh pearls, white gems, green chrysolites and red rubies.' According to another tradition, he (p.b.u.h) said: "The marriage took place near the Lotus tree in the seventh Heaven, on the night of Ascension. (On that occasion) Allah revealed to the tree: Sprinkle all that you bear on them.' So it sprinkled them with gems, jewe1ry and corals." then Allah commanded the Tree of Paradise to bear gems and jewelry; He then ordered it to sprinkle them over the angels. So whoever received more than the others on that day, will be proud of it until the Day of Resurrection."
  95. "The Prophet (p.b.u.h) had a new dress made for Fatima (as a gift) for her wedding; she had just one old patched dress. On her wedding night, someone knocked on the door and said: 'I ask the household of Prophethood to give me an old dress'. At first Fatima was going to give him her old dress, but then remembered the Quranic verse: 'By no means shall ye attain righteousness unless ye give (freely) of that which ye love (prefer)'
  96. She then gave the poor man her new dress. Consequently, Gabriel descended and said: 'O Muhammad! Allah sends Him peace upon you, He commanded me to greet Fatima and (give her the gift He sent her) which is a dress from Paradise, made of silk brocade..."
  97. (Returning to the feast), when the food had been prepared, the meat cooked, the bread baked and the dates and butter obtained, the Prophet (p.b.u.h) started spitting the dates and mixing them with the butter to replace sweetmeat for the wedding. When everything was ready, he (p.b.u.h) asked Ali to invite the people to the feast. When Ali reached the Mosque, he found it crowded with people-all were at the Mosque, from the poor immigrants who lived there to the Ansars. Nevertheless, Ali's generosity and noble-hearted less did not allow him to invite some people and exclude others, especially since everyone wanted to be invited to the Prophet's daughter's wedding feast. Ali's belief in Allah's power and the Prophet's blessed heart, motivated him to call out loud:  " O people, answer the call for the feast of Fatima Bint Muhammad."
  98. Jabir said: "We were present at Fatima and Ali's (may Allah be pleased with them) wedding ceremony, and indeed we have not seen any ceremony better than that one..."
  99. The Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h) ordered his wives to embellish Fatima (a.s) before the wedding; they perfumed and dressed her with jewelry. They all helped to ready Fatima; some combed her hair while others embellished and dressed her in the dress brought by Gabriel from Paradise. Allah's Messenger (p.b.u.h) paid special attention to Fatima Zahra (a.s), which he did not bestow on his other daughters for the following reasons: A. Her special characteristics and noble traits. B. Her husband is Ali Ibn Abu Talib, who is known for his talents and longstanding service to Islam-besides being the Prophet's cousin. C. The Prophet (p.b.u.h) also knew that his daughter was going to be included in the verse of purification, the verse of Mubahelah (supplication), and the verse of Kinship. Fatima also is the mother of the Holy Imams who will lead humanity until the Day of Resurrection.
  100. The night of Fatima's wedding arrived. Because every girl needs her mother on her wedding night, Fatima missed Khadija and felt very much like an orphan. With his (p.b.u.h) noble and special attention to Fatima, the Prophet wished to fill Khadija's space; the Prophet called Ali (a..s) and Fatima, who proceeded towards him-Fatima was in her long heavenly dress overtaken with shyness. He (p.b.u.h) brought his gray horse and asked Fatima to ride it and ordered Salman to lead while he (p.b.u.h) followed them. Yes, indeed, Fatima's wedding was attended by heavenly creatures as well as people; for she is a human huri.
  101. "When Fatima was taken to Ali's house on her wedding night, the Prophet proceeded her, Gabriel was on her right, and Michael on her left, and seventy thousand angels followed her. These angels praised and glorified Allah until dawn!!
  102. The Hashemit men, Abdul Muttalib's daughters, and Muhajerin and Ansar s women all accompanied Fatima's caravan that night. The Prophet's wives joyfully led the caravan; they were also the first to enter the house.
  103. Upon arriving, the Prophet (p.b.u.h) placed Fatima's hand in Ali's hand and said: May Allah bless his Messenger's daughter; Ali, this is Fatima, you are responsible for her (or I entrust her to you) Ali what an excellent wife Fatima is!! Fatima, what an excellent husband Ali is!! O Allah, bless them, bless their lives, and bless their children. O Allah, surely they are the most beloved to me from among your creatures, so love them too, and assign for them a guardian. I place them and their progeny under Your protection from the curse devil.'
  104. The Prophet (p.b.u.h) then asked for a jug of water; he sipped a small amount of the water and after gargling with it, placed it back in the jug. He then called for Fatima and sprayed her head and shoulders with that water and did the same thing to Ali (a.s). Thereafter, he ordered the women to leave the house. They all left except Asma Bint Umais. When he noticed that she had stayed behind, he exclaimed: 'Didn't l ask you to leave?' She answered: 'Indeed, O Messenger of Allah! May my parents be your sacrifice; I did not intend to disobey you, but I promised Khadija to take her place on this night.' The Prophet was moved by this; he cried and said to Asma: 'By Allah, is this the reason that made you stay behind?' She said: 'Yes, by Allah!' He (p.b.u.h) then said: 'Asma, may Allah fulfill for you the needs of this world and the Hereafter
  105. Thus, the Messenger gave Ali a position next to his own, for the position of Aaron was next to that of Moses. Al-Bukhari recorded in his Sahih that the Messenger said: "Fatimah is the leader of the women of Paradise."
  106. Imam Askari (a.s) said: "A woman came to Fatima Zahra (a.s) and said: 'I have a weak mother who has become confused about a matter related to her prayer; she sent me to inquire from you about it''
  107. Allah desires praise for His blessings .
  108. Hazrat Fatima Zahra told her son Husayn:
    When I gave birth to you, the Prophet came to see me. He took you in his hands and said to me: "O Fatima, take your Husayn, and know that he is the father of nine Imams. From his descendants will appear righteous leaders among whom the ninth will be the Qa'im."
  109. Allah has bestowed on man strong meditative instinct in guidance of which he can easily perceive truth .
  110. Allah can be seen through prudence , not sight .
  111. On the grave of Holy Prophet Hazrat Zahra said . " Oh! my father , after you I faced such a terrible troubles that if they were to be faced by shinning days they would have turned into dark nights.
  112. Personality encompassed by by human minds , cannot  be Allah .
  113. Human tongue is unable to offer real praise of the Alimighty Allah
  114. One day Fatima (AS) mentioned the intensity of her daughter's love for Imam Husayn (AS) to the Prophet (PBUH&HF). He breathed a deep sigh and said with moistened eyes,
  115. It is reported in Bihar that Ali (a.s) said to a man from Bani Sa'eed:  "Should I speak to you about Fatima and I?She was my spouse who was the most beloved to the Prophet.
  116. Once, she carried water using a warer skin until it scarred her chest, she ground (grain) using a hand mill until blisters appeared on her hands, she swept the floor until her clothes became dusty and lit the fire under the cooking pot until her clothes became mud colored from the smoke. Fatima was inflicted by great pain as a result of this, so I said to her: 'Why don't you ask your father for a servant to relieve you from these jobs?'
  117. When Fatima (a.s) went to the Prophet (p.b.u.h) she found that he had company; and was too shy to talk to him, so she left the house. But the Prophet (p.b.u.h) knew that she had come for something."
  118. Imam Ali (a.s) continued: "The next morning, the Prophet (p.b.u.h) came to the house while we were still under our quilt and said:
  119. 'Assalamu Alaikum!' Yet because we were ashamed (of being under the quilt), we preferred to remain silent. The Prophet once again said. 'Assalamu Alaikum!' Once again we remained silent. Then for the third time the Prophet said: 'Assalamu Alaikum!' Now we feared that he would depart, for it was the Prophet's habit to say Assalamu Alaikum three times and then wait for permission to enter or leave. So I said: 'Wa Alaik As-Salam, Messenger of Allah. Come in.'
  120. He (p.b.u.h) sat near our heads and said: 'Fatima, what was your need when you came to Muhammad yesterday?'Imam Ali added: "I was afraid that she (Fatima) would not tell him, so I pulled my head from under the cover and said: "I will inform you, Messenger of Allah! Surely she carried water using a water skin until her chest was scarred, she ground (grain) using a hand mill until blisters appeared on her hands, she swept the floor until her clothes became dusty and lit the fire under the cooling pot until her clothes were mud colored from the smoke. So I said to her: Why don t ask your father for a servant to relieve you form these jobs?"
  121. The Prophet (p.b.u.h) upon hearing this, said:' Shall I teach you something that is better for you than a servant? When you lay down to sleep, glorify Allah thirty-three (33) times and praise Him thirty-three (33) times, and say Allahu Akbar thirty-four (34) times.' So Fatima (a.s) pulled the quilt from over her head and said three times:
  122. 'I am pleased with (that which) Allah and His Messenger (gave us)."
  123. Hazrat Imam  Ali (a.s) said: "Once a Persian monarch gave the prophet (p.b.u.h) some slaves as a gift. I told Fatima to go to the Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h) and ask him for a servant.
  124. When she did, he (p.b.u.h) replied: 'Fatima, I will give you that which is better for you than a servant and the world with everything in it. After every prayer say: Allahu Akbar thirty-four (34) times, Alhamdulillah thirty-three (33) times and Subhan Allah thirty-three (33) times; then conclude that with La Ilaha Illa Allah. Surely this is better for you than which you wanted and the world and its belongings.' Thus, Fatima adhered to this glorification after every prayer; and it came to be known as Tasbih Fatima.'
  125. Imam Ali (a.s) said: "Once, the Messenger of Allah came to us while Fatima was sitting near the pot and I was cleaning some lentils; when the Prophet saw us he said: 'Abu Al-Hassan!' I said: 'At your service! O Messenger of Allah!' He then said: 'Listen to me, for I say not save that which is the word of Lord: There is not a man who helps his wife in her housework, save that with very hair on his body a whole year of worship-during which he fasted the days and kept up the nights in prayer-is counted for him...."
  126. "Fatima, you know Ali Ibn Abu Talib's relationship to us, his devotion and faithfulness to Islam. I asked Allah to give you in marriage to the best of His creatures, and the most beloved to Him; and he (Ali) has declared his wish to marry you; what do you say?"  Fatima did not reply, nor did she show a sign of rejection or resentment, so he (p.b.u.h) stood up and said:  "Allah is the Greatest! Her silence is her approval."
  127. When the Prophet returned, he said: "Bring me my son; what have you named him?" After AI-Hassan was born Fatima asked Ali (a.s) to name the baby, but Ali said: "I would not name him before Allah's Prophet (p.b.u.h)"
  128. ' Father; Oh! My sincere friend; Oh! Abu Al-Qasim; Oh!
  129. The helper of the widowed and the orphans;
  130. Who do we have for Ka`ba and the Mosque?
  131. Who does your saddened and grieved daughter have?"
  132. ' Fedhdhe added: "Fatima (A.S.) then proceeded towards the tomb of the Prophet; it was difficult for her to walk because her tears covered her eyes.
  133. When she saw the Mizaneh , she passed out; so the women rushed to rescue her; after putting water of her face, she regained consciousness;
  134. Fatima then said: 'My strength has been eradicated;
  135. My endurance has betrayed me;
  136. My enemies have rejoiced at my misfortune;
  137. And my grief will kill me;
  138. Father!! I remain bewildered and lonely;
  139. Confused and lonesome;
  140. My voice is subdued;
  141. My back is broken;
  142. My life is disturbed; I find no one,
  143. Father, after you to attend to my loneliness;
  144. Neither to stop my tears;
  145. Nor to support me in times of weakness;
  146. Surely precise revelations,
  147. The place of Gabriel's descendence and Michael's location have vanished after you,
  148. Father; Motives (of others) have changed;
  149. And gates have been shut in my face;
  150. Thus, I detest this world after you;
  151. And my tears shall be shed for you as long as breath continues to exist in me.
  152. My longing for you shall not cease;
  153. My sadness for (being separated from) you shall not vanish;
  154. Fatima then cried out loudly: Father!! With you went the light of the world;
  155. Its flowers wither away after blossoming in your presence;
  156. Father!! I will forever be sorrowful for you until we are reunited;
  157. Father!! Sleeping has left me since we have been separated;
  158. Father!! Who is there for the widows and the orphans;
  159. Who will we have for the Ummah until The Day of Rising?!
  160. Father!! We became -after you- among the oppressed;
  161. Father!! People shun us after you; after we were glorified by your presence among men.
  162. Thus what tear shall not spill on your departure?
  163. What sadness (after you) shall not continue to exist?
  164. Which eyelid shall be smeared with slumber?
  165. You are the spring of faith and the light of Prophets.
  166. So how can mountains not sway?
  167. And seas not sway out?
  168. How can the Earth not tremble?
  169. Father!! I have been afflicted with the greatest sorrow, and my disaster is not minor!
  170. Father!! I have been inflicted with the greatest misfortune and the biggest calamity.
  171. Angels cry for you, and stars cease to move because of you.
  172. Your minbar (after you) is gloomy,
  173. Your minbar is empty of your secret conversation (with your Lord).
  174. Your grave is joyful for holding you;
  175. And Paradise is delighted with your presence,
  176. Supplication and prayers. Father! How gloomy are your meeting places (without your presence).
  177. How pained I am for you, until I soon join you !!
  178. How bereaved is Abu AI-Hussan, The entrusted one!!
  179. The Father of your two sons, Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain; your beloved one;
  180. He who you brought up as a youth, and made your brother as a man. (AbuAI-Hassan)
  181. The most beloved of your companions to you. Abu Al-Hassan, who was the first to immigrate and help you.
  182. Sadness has overtaken us;
  183. Crying will kill us;
  184. And distress will always accompany us.
  185. Lady Fatima (A.S.) then returned to her house and lived in misery and sadness until she joined her beloved father not long after he passed away."
  186. At any rate, Ali (a.s) was forced to the Mosque. When Fatima Zahra (a.s)) saw this, she followed him and addressed Abu Bakr by saying: "Do you wish to make me a widow?! By Allah if you do not let him go, I will uncover my head, rip my shirt, and go to my Father's tomb and cry to my Lord..."So she (a.s) took Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain's hands and proceeded towards her father's (p.b.u.h) tomb! When Imam Ali (a.s) saw the seriousness of the situation, he immediately interfered and said to Salman:"Prevent Muhammad's daughter (form reaching her father's grave) for surely I can see the outskirts of Medina being sunk into the earth." Salman later said: "I was near Lady Fatima when, by Allah, I saw the foundations of the Mosque's walls being elevated up to a point that had a man wanted to go from under them, he would have been able to do so. So I said: 'My Mistress, surely Allah, the Exalte4 sent your father to be mercy, thus do not become the cause of His wrath." These noble stands of Fatima, forced Abu Bakr and Umar to release Ali (a.s); Fatima (a.s) returned home after setting the most honorable example of devotion to her husband.
  187. Standing behind the door, Fatima (a.s) reproachfully addressed the raiding people thus:"O people! You left behind the Prophet's dead body to us and proceeded to wring out the Caliphate for yourselves, extinguishing our rights."
  188. She (a.s) then burst into tears and cried: "O Father! 0 Prophet of Allah! How soon after you troubles are pouring on us at the hands of the son of Khattab (Umar) and the son of Abu Quhafa (Abu Bakr). How soon they have ignored your words at Ghadir Al-Khum and your saying that Ali was to you as Haroun was to Musa."
  189. Fatima's saying to Imam Ali (a.s): "This is Ibn Abu Quhafa snatching away my father's grant to me."
  190. Fatima Zahra's saying to Abu Bakr:"Surely Fadak was granted to me by my father, the Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h)."
  191. When Khadija was buried at Houjoun, the Messenger of Allah stepped down into her grave to bless it. Meanwhile, Fatima kept close to her father and asked him: "Messenger of Allah, where is my Mother?"
    The Prophet avoided Fatima's question, so she looked around for someone to ask where her Mother was! At that point, Gabriel descended and revealed the following to the Prophet "Your Lord commands you to inform Fatima that He sends His blessings upon her and says: Your Mother is in a house of brocade, its corners are made of gold, and its poles are of rubies. It is located between Assia's (Pharaoh's wife) and Maryam Bint Imran's houses."
  192. Fatima then said: "Surely Allah is As-Salam, and peace is from Him and to Him."
  193. People who tempt one another to disobey Allah are inimical amongst themselves .
  194. End of showing tyranny towards others is always wretched .
  195. People who afford vicious complexion for truth & paint falsehood  as truth will surely receive proper chastisement .
  196. History provides ample evidence that murderers always meet grievous ends that they deserve of vice always stand losers .
  197. Fatima Zahra (a.s) answered her; the woman repeatedly came with questions for Fatima, and she (a.s) kindly answered her every time. One day the lady again approached Fatima (a.s) with another question from her mother and said to Fatima:'I shall not inconvenience you (any more), daughter of Allah's Messenger.'
  198. Fatima replied: 'Ask me regarding anything which comes to your mind, because if a man had been hired to transport a heavy load to the top of a mountain for a reward of one thousand dinars, do you think it would bother him?' The woman said: 'NO'
  199. Fatima continued: 'My reward for (answering) every inquiry is more than that which fills (the space) between the ground and the Throne with pearls; thus, I should be more apt to answer your questions. Surely I heard my father say.
  200. When the scholars of our S hi it e (followers) are gathered (on the Day of Resurrection), they will be bestowed with garments of honor equal in quantity to their knowledge and struggle to guide Allah s worshippers, up to the point that anyone of them will be gifted with one million garments of light.'
  201. Then the caller of our Exalted and Glorified Lord will say:  O you guardians of the orphans of Muhammad. (You) who inspire them when they are separated their fathers, who are their Imams; these are your pupils and the orphans whom you guarded and inspired, therefore bestow them with garments of knowledge in life. Thus, they will bestow each orphan with that which corresponds to the amount of knowledge he received from them (the scholars); up to the point that some orphans are bestowed with one million garments. Like-so, the orphans bestow those who learnt from them.' Then Allah, the Exalted said: Repeat upon these scholars, the guardians of the orphans, the bestowment and double and complete for them and for those who follow them.'
  202. Fatima (a.s) then added: Worshipper of Allah, surely a thread of those garments is better than that on which the sun rises."
  203. "Once, I entered the house of Fatima (a.s), who was the first to greet me; she then said: 'What brings you here?' I said: 'I have come in search of blessing.'
  204. Fatima then said: 'My father (who was present,) said, 'He who greets him or me for three consecutive days, will be granted Paradise by Allah.'
  205. said: 'While you are living?' She answered: 'yes, and after we are dead."
  206. Imam Ali (a.s) quoted Fatima as saying: 'The Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h) said: Fatima, praises you, will be forgiven by Allah; companion where ever in Paradise I may be.'
  207. Allah's Messenger (s.a.w) taught Fatima the following supplication: O Allah, Our Lord and the Lord of Everything; (He) Who revealed Tawrat, Injeel and Furqan (Quran); (He) Who causes the seed-grain and the date-stone to split and sprout; I seek refuge in You from every beast that you shall seize by its forelock , Surely You are the First, where nothing has succeeded (You); And the last, where nothing shall come after (You); You are the Evident, there is nothing more Manifest than You; And the Eminent, there is nothing more Eminent than You; Send your grace upon Muhammad and his Ahlul-Bayt. May Peace be upon them , And settle my debts for me; Make me free from poverty, And decree easy for me all my affairs. O You! Most Merciful of all.
  208. "It was narrated that when she (Fatima) learnt about her marriage and that her dowry was a small number of dirhams, she said: `O Messenger of Allah, lay girls take money for dowries; what is the difference between me and them (if my dowry was to be money too)? I kindly ask you to give it back and supplicate to Allah, the Exalted, to make my dowry the right to intercede for the sinners among Muslims (on the Day of Rising).' It was then that Gabriel descended with a label on which the following statement was written: 'Allah ordained Fatima Zahra's dowry to be intercedence for the sinners among Muslims.'
  209. When Fatima (A.S.) was on her deathbed, she asked that the label be put on her chest under the coffin. Thus, it was done so. Fatima said:  "When I am raised on the Day of Resurrection, I will present this label with my hand to intercede for the sinners from among my Father's nation."
  210. It is apparent that the narration mentioned above illustrates the greatness, honor, and excellence Lady Fatima enjoyed. The Messenger's supplication was answered, so Fatima will present the label on the day when it is most needed. Nasfi said: "Fatima (may Allah be pleased with her) asked the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) that her dowry would be intercedence for his nation on the day of Resurrection. So when she passes the path, she will ask for her dowry."
  211. "The Prophet had a new dress made for Fatima (as a gift) for her wedding; she had just one old patched dress. On her wedding night, someone knocked on the door and said: "I ask the household of Prophet hood to give me an old dress." At first, Fatima was going to give him her old dress, but then remembered the Quranic verse: `By no means shall ye attain righteousness unless ye give (freely) of that which ye love (prefer)' She then gave the poor man her new dress. Consequently, Gabriel descended and said:"O Muhammad! Allah sends Him peace upon you; He commanded me to greet Fatima and (give her the gift He sent her) which is a dress from Paradise, made of silk brocade etc."
  212. It has been narrated in Al-Kafi that Abdullah Ibn Ja'far al-Ansari said: "Once, the Prophet of Allah proceeded towards Fatima's house while I was with him; when we reached the door, he pushed the door (slightly) and said: 'Assalamu Alaikum' Fatima (A.S.) answered: 'Alaik as-Salam, Messenger of Allah.'
  213. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) then said: `May I come in?' She said: 'I do not have my veil on, O Messenger of Allah.'He said: 'Fatima, cover your head with your cloak' 
  214. When she had done so, he said: 'Assalamu Alaikum' She answered: 'Alaik-as-Salam, Messenger of Allah.' He repeated the request for permission to enter the house with me, and she gave us permission."
  215. Reported that Jabir Ibn Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: "Um Ayman came to the Prophet (p.b.u.h) crying; the Prophet asked her why she was crying? She replied: 'A man from the Ansar just informed me that his daughter has just been married, and that sprinkled sweets and almonds on her.
  216. Thus, this reminded me that when Fatima married Ali, you did not sprinkle anything on her.'
  217. There-upon the Prophet said: "By Allah Who sent me with honor, and gifted me with the Messenger ship; when Allah gave Fatima to Ali in marriage,
  218. He ordered the nearest angels to surround the Throne-including Gabriel, Michael and Israfil. He also commanded birds to sing and ordered the tree of Tuba to sprinkle them with fresh pearls, white gems, green chrysolites and red rubies.'
  219. According to another tradition, he (p.b.u.h) said: "The marriage took place near the Lotus tree in the seventh Heaven, on the night of Ascension. (On that occasion) Allah revealed to the tree: Sprinkle all that you bear on them.' So it sprinkled them with gems, jewe1ry and corals."
  220. Then Allah commanded the Tree of Paradise to bear gems and jewelry; He then ordered it to sprinkle them over the angels. So whoever received more than the others on that day, will be proud of it until the Day of Resurrection."
  221. The Prophet (P.b.u.h) ordered Ali (a.s) to hold a dinner because Allah, the Exalted, is pleased with those who do so; for the social good it does-such as bringing people together and implementing love and harmony among them. It is noteworthy that Lady Fatima Zahra (a.s) excelled in giving on the path of Allah; she possessed generosity that no other woman can claim to be equal to.
  222. Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq
    on the authority of Abdulla ibn Maimun that Fatima had (some) barley from which porridge was made
    and placed before thent (for breaking the fast). Just then a beggar came and said, I am a poor
    man, may Allah have mercy upon you. Ali (a.s.) got up and gave him one third of the food. Then
    came an orphan and said, I am an orphan, may Allah have mercy upon you. Au (a.s.) got up and gave
    him another third (of the food) Then came a pns~ oner (of war) and said, may Allah have mercy
    upon you. Ali gave him the remaining one-third, without, they, the Ahlul- Bait tasting anything
    and going without meals. Thereby Allah the Exalted revealed the said verses. It is clear that
    this sura was revealed in Madina, and as a scholar of the stature Abu Harnza Thamali testifies,
    the whole sura was revealed in favour of Ali and Fatima.
  223. Holy Prophet SAWS said: "In men many who have been complete have passed. However in women only four women who are complete have passed  (Lady) Mariam (A.S) (Mother of Jesus) , (lady) Asiah  ,(Lady) Khadijah (Our Lady's mother) , (lady) Fatimah (SWT)
    And in them to achieve the highest level of completion was (lady) Fatimah (SWT)."
  224. Al-Majlisi, quoting Fural Ibn Ibrahim's interpretation of The Holy Quran in his book Al-Bihar, said: 'Abu Saeed al-Khudari said: One morning Ali Ibn Abu Talib woke up very hungry and said:
  225. 'Fatima, do you have anything to feed us?' She answered: `No,
  226. By Him who honored father with Prophet hood, and honored you with successors ship, we have nothing edible this morning, and we haven't had any food for two days save that which I have preferred to give you and our two children, Hassan and Hussain.'
  227. Ali (A.S.) said: 'Fatima! Why didn't you tell me, so I could bring some food for you?'
  228. Fatima answered: 'Abu Al-Hassan, I surely become ashamed before my God to ask you to do something you cannot do.'
  229. At this, Ali Ibn Abu Talib left Fatima, with full trust that Allah would help him. He borrowed a dinar, and while he was holding the dinar and trying to buy some food for his family, he came upon Miqdad Ibn Al Aswad.
  230. The sun had burnt Al-Miqdad's face and feet on that exceptionally hot day. When Ali (A.S.) saw him, he exclaimed surprisingly: `Miqdad, what brings you out of your home at this hour?' Miqdad answered: 'Abu Al-Hassan, ask me not about what I have left behind in the house.'
  231. Ali (A.S.) said: `My brother, I cannot leave you without knowing your problem.' Miqdad then said: 'Abu Al-Hassan, for Allah's sake and your sake leave me alone, and do not ask about my condition!!'
  232. Imam Ali said: `My brother, you should not hide your condition from me.' Miqdad replied: 'Abu Al-Hassan, now that you insist, by Him who honored Muhammad with Prophet hood and honored you with successor ship, nothing forced me out of my house save poverty. I left my children starving; when I heard their cries, there remained no place for me on earth-I have come out of my house in depression; this is my story.'
  233. Imam Ali (A.S.) cried when he heard the story; he cried until his beard was wet from tears and said: `By Allah, that which forced you out of your house and also forced me out of my house; I borrowed a dinar, but I prefer you to have it.'
  234.  When Imam Ali (A.S.) had given the dinar to Miqdad, he went to the Mosque and performed his Zhuhar (noon), Asr (afternoon) and Maghrib (evening) prayers.
  235. When the Messenger of Allah had completed his prayers, he signaled Ali, who was in the first line, to follow him. Ali (A.S.) obediently followed him out of the Mosque and after the Prophet greeted him said:
  236. 'Abu Al-Hassan, do you have some food for dinner so that I can accompany you?'
  237. Imam Ali was too shy to answer the Messenger; but the Prophet of Allah (P.B.U.H.) had detailed knowledge about the dinar and what had happened to it; for Allah, the Exalted, had revealed to His Prophet to have dinner at Ali's house that night.
  238. When Ali did not answer, the Prophet said: 'Abu Al-Hassan, why don't you say no, so I may leave you; or yes, so I may accompany you?'
  239. Imam Ali (A.S.) said: 'Accompany me!!'
  240. The Prophet then took Ali's hand and proceeded toward Fatima's house.
  241. When they arrived, Fatima was just finishing her prayers and there was a pan oil fire behind her.
  242. When she heard the Prophet coming, who was the dearest person to her, she greeted him and he wiped his hand on her head and said:
  243. `How is your evening, my daughter? She answered: `Fine!'
  244. He then said: `Give us some dinner, may Allah bless you, and surely He has.'
  245. Fatima (A.S.) placed the pan in front of the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) and Ali Ibn Abu Talib...
  246. At that moment, the Messenger of Allah put his hand on Ali's shoulder and said: 'Ali, this is a substitute for your dinar. This is a reward from Allah for the dinar; surely Allah grants whoever He wills without limit.'
  247. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) cried and said: "Praise be to Allah, Who insisted on rewarding you in this world, too, and made you Ali-like Zakariya and Fatima like Maryam Bint Imran, for whenever Zakariya entered the Mehrab, he found Maryam with her subsistence."
  248. New generations must receive lessons from accounts of their ancestors & fore-runners.
  249. Followers of vice always stand losers .
  250. Abstain from worldly evils , remain free from following them .
  251. Imam Askari (A.S.) said: "A woman came to Fatima Zahra (A.S.) and said: `I have a weak mother who has become confused about a matter related to her prayer; she sent me to inquire from you about it.' Fatima Zahra (A.S.) answered her; the woman repeatedly came with questions for Fatima, and she (A.S.) kindly answered her every time. One day the lady again approached Fatima (A.S.) with another question from her mother and said to Fatima:
    `I shall not inconvenience you (any more), daughter of Allah's Messenger.'
  252. Fatima replied: 'Ask me regarding anything, which comes to your mind. Because if a man had been hired to transport a heavy load to the top of a mountain for a reward of one thousand dinars, do you think it would bother him?' The woman said: `No'
  253. Fatima continued: `My reward for (answering) every inquiry is more than that which fills (the space) between the ground and the Throne with pearls; thus, I should be more apt to answer your questions.
  254. Surely I heard my father say: `When the scholars of our Shiite (followers) are gathered (on the Day of Resurrection), they will be bestowed with garments of honor equal in quantity to their knowledge and struggle to guide Allah's worshippers, up to the point that anyone of them will be gifted with one million garments of light.' Then the caller of our Exalted and Glorified Lord will say: O you guardians of the orphans of Muhammad. (You) who inspire them when they are separated from their fathers, who are their Imams; these are your pupils and the orphans whom you guarded and inspired, therefore bestow them with garments of knowledge in life. Thus, they will bestow each orphan with that which corresponds to the amount of knowledge he received from them (the scholars); up to the point that some orphans are bestowed with one million garments. Like-so, the orphans bestow those who learnt from them.' Then Allah, the Exalted said: `Repeat upon these scholars, the guardians of the orphans, the bestowment and double and complete it for them and for those who follow them"
  255. Fatima (A.S.) then added: `Worshipper of Allah, surely a thread of those garments is better than that on which the sun rises. "'
  256. Worldly temptations have rendered eyes of men blind , still , sadly enough , they do not shake off their negligence
  257. One day a man threw some mud on Mohammad face. So he went home to bathe. While his daughter Fatimah(as) was washing his head from the mud.
  258. She began to weep. Her father Mohammad patted her little head and said. "Little daughter don't weep. Allah will protect your father. He'll protect your father from all enemies of His religion and of His Mission!"
    The holy Archangel Jibraeel came down from the sky saying to Mohammad.
    "O Mohammad, go thee out of Mecca. Your supporter has died."
  259. Supporters of evil , who do not defend truth , cannot be secure against tyranny of the cruel .
  260. Those who misapprehend about themselves always face insult.
  261. How can people who defy progeny of the holy prophet of islam , prove faithful beings while they seek support from falsehood ?
  262. Yazid Ibn Abdulmalik (Nawfali) quoted his father, who quoted his grandfather as saying: "Once, I entered the house of Fatima (A.S.) who was the first to greet me;
  263. She then said: `What brings you here?' I said: "I have come in search of blessing."
  264. Fatima then said: "My father (who was present) said: 'He who greets him or me for three consecutive days, will be granted Paradise by Allah.' I said: `While you are living?'
  265. She answered: 'yes, and after we are dead.'"
  266. How can I like the world infested with cheats ?
  267. The people got inside the house of Hazret Zahra  by shouting and destroying every thing, on this Hazrat Zahra came out and said go away from my house otherwise I will pray against you to the God.
  268. Allah made belief to be purification for you from polytheism.
    He made:
  269. Prayer - An exaltation for you from conceit.
  270. Alms - A purification for the soul and a (cause of) growth in subsistence.
  271. Fasting - An implantation of devotion.
  272. Pilgrimage - A construction of religion.
  273. Justice - A harmony of the hearts.
  274. Obeying us (Ahlul-Bayt) Management of the nation.
  275. Our leadership (Ahlul-Bayt). Safeguard from disunity.
  276. Jihad (struggle) - A strengthening of Islam.
  277. Patience - A helping course for deserving (divine) reward.
  278. Ordering goodness (Amr Bi Maruf) Public welfare.
  279. Kindness to the parents - A safeguard from wrath.
  280. Maintaining close relations with one’s kin-A cause for a longer life and multiplying the number of descendants.
  281. Retaliation (Qesas) -For sparing blood (souls).
  282. Fulfillment of vows - subjecting oneself to mercy.
  283. Completion of weights and measures - A cause for preventing the neglect of others’ rights.
  284. Forbiddance of drinking wine - An exaltation from atrocity.
  285. Avoiding slander - A veil from curse.
  286. Abandoning theft-a reason for deserving chastity.
  287. Allah has also prohibited polytheism so that one can devote himself to His Lordship.
  288. Therefore; Fear Allah as He should be feared, and die not except in a state of Islam;
  289. Obey Allah in that which He has commanded you to do and that which He has forbidden, for surely those truly fear among His servants, who have knowledge.
  290. It is useless retesting a person already tried .
  291. People who defy truth after its recognition resemble a rusted sword .
  292. To be unjust towards faith after recognizing it , is a great fault .
  293. Those who follow tyrants & do not stand by the rightful , do not deserve forgiveness .
  294. Imam Ali (A.S.) quoted Fatima as saying: "The Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H.) said: 'Fatima, he who praises you, will be forgiven by Allah; Who will make him my companion where ever in Paradise I may be."
  295. Praise and Eulogy is for Allah for the blessing and bounties, which He has bestowed. And thanks to HIM upon what He revealed (to His servants) And Praise is for HIM upon the common boons and blessings which He bestowed upon His servants without their request And upon the comprehensive and complete blessings which He granted to all and sundry and gave it to us, consecutively those graces and favors, which are uncountable.
    And are irredeemable and uncompensatable due to their plentiful ness of number. And the imagination of their end is out of the reach of human mind.
    He invited the servant to thankfulness for the sake of the consecutive and continuous enhancement of blessings. And opened the door of eulogy and Praise (of Allah) upon them so that He may make his favors and beneficences great and plentiful for them
  296.  I testify that there is no Diety (Lord) except the sole and matchless Allah. And the testification of the singleness of Allah is a word that Allah has declared sincerity (as) it's reality, and made the hearts the centre of it's contact and union. And has made the specifications and research of the oneness of Allah's station obvious and evident in the light of meditation. The Allah Who cannot be seen by the eyes and tongues are unable and baffled to describe His virtues and attributes. And the intelligence and apprehension of man is helpless and destitute from the imagination of his how ness.
  297.  Allah made all the beings without previous matter and sample and shape and pattern. And made them wear the dress of life by His main and might and created them according to His Devine will and Intention short of it that He might have needed their creation or have wished any benefit for Himself from their shaping and sketching except this that he wanted to give a proof of His wisdom and make the people (creations) aware about His obedience and submission and invited them to his servitude and worship and make His Invitation grand and ostentatious.
  298. Allah fixed the reward for His obedience and torment for His insubordination and disobedience so that He may restrain His servants from His wrath and fury and lead them to His paradise.
  299. Prophet asked to marry her, but he (P.B.U.H.) rejected them by saying: "Her affair is left to her Lord; whenever He wills, she will marry."
  300. Prophet only said to her: "Fatima, you know Ali Ibn Abu Talib's relationship to us, his devotion and faithfulness to Islam. I asked Allah to give you in marriage to the best of His creatures, and the most beloved to Him; and he (Ali) has declared his wish to marry you; what do you say?"
    Fatima did not reply, nor did she show a sign of rejection or resentment, so he (P.B.U.H.) stood up and said: "Allah is the Greatest! Her silence is her approval."
  301. "The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) was in the mosque when he said to Ali: `Here is Gabriel informing me that Allah gave Fatima to you in marriage, and made forty thousand angels testify to her marriage. He also revealed to the Tree of Tuba to sprinkle them with gems, rubies, jewelry and embellishments. When it had done this, the Huris rushed to collect these gems, rubies, jewelry, and embellishments to exchange them for gifts until the Day of Resurrection. "
  302. When Fatimah come of age, there come forward a number of aspirants to ask for her hand in marriage. The Holy prophet was awaiting the Divine order in this respect, till Imam Ali a.s  approached him and asked for her hand in marriage. The Holy Prophet s.a.w come to Hazrat Fatima a.s  and asked, " My daughter ! Do you consent to be wedded to ` Ali, as I am so commanded by Allah ? " Hazrat Fatima a.s thereupon bowed her head in modesty. Umm Salamah narrates: " The face of Hazrat Fatima a.s  bloomed with joy and her silence was so suggestive and conspicuous that the Holy Prophet stood up reciting ` Allahu Akbar' ( Allah is most great ) .
  303. Fatimah's silence is her acceptance." On Friday, l st. dhi'l - hijjah 2 A H , the marriage ceremony took place. All the Muhajirun ( Emigrants) and Ansar ( Helpers) of Medina assembled in the mosque while Imam ` Ali was seated before the Holy Prophet with all the ceremonious modesty of a bridegroom. they Holy Prophet first recited an eloquent sermon and them announced: I have been commanded by Allah to get Fatimah wedded to ` Ali, and so I do hereby solemnize the matrimony between ` Ali and Fatimah on a dower of four hundred mithqal of silver. Then he asked Imam ` Ali, " Do you consent to it, O `Ali ? " Yes, I do , O Holy Prophet of Allah! " replied Imam ` Ali. Then the Holy Prophet raised his hands to pray thus O my god ! bless both of them , sanctify their progeny and grant them the keys of The beneficence, Thy treasures of wisdom and Thy genius; and let them be a source of blessing and peace to my ummah.
  304. Before her demise she bequeathed the following as her will to Imam 'Ali: 1. O ` Ali, you will personally perform my funeral rites.
  305. 2. Those who have displeased my should not be allowed to attend my funeral.
  306. 3 .My corpse should be carried to the graveyard at right. Thus Imam ` compliance with her will , performed all the funeral rites and accompanied exclusively by her relatives and sons carried her at night to Jannatu l-Baqi, where she was laid to rest and her wishes fulfilled.
  307. The Holy Prophet said: "whoever injures (bodily or sentimentally ) Fatimah, injures me ; and whoever injures me injures Allah; and whoever injures Allah practices unbelief. O Fatimah ! If your wrath is incurred, it incurs the wrath of Allah; and if you are happy, it makes Allah happy too."
  308.  And I testify that my father Mohammad (s.a.w) is the apostle and the servant of Allah. And Allah selected and chose him before appointing him at the post of Prophet hood. And He named him before choosing and selecting him. And chose him before envying and delegating him. Then all the creations were hidden and covered in the covers of unseen and were hidden amid the screen and curtain of fear and fright and stayed near the last and final border of non entity (nothingness) for Allah was aware of and knew the end of matters and because of His encompassing the incidents of times and ages and His knowledge of the predestinates.
  309. The Holy Prophet said, " Fatimah is a peace of my heart". He would go out to receive his doughtier whenever she come from her husband's house. Every morning on his way to the Mosque, he would pass by Fatimah's house and say: " as-salamu ` alaykum ya ahlul-Bayti`n-nubuwwah wa ma` dani ` r - risala " ( peace be on you O the Household of prophet hood and the source of Messengership) Fatimah is famous and acknowledged as the " sayyidatu 'n-nisa'i ' l-alamin " ( Leader of all the women of the world for all times ) because the Prophethood of Muhammad would not have been everlasting without her.
  310. Would Ali behave in such a manner when he heard the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) say to Fatima?  "I gave you in marriage to the first one to adhere to Islam from my nation, he is also the most knowledgeable and most patient among them?" &
  311. "I gave you in marriage to the first Muslim and best mannered man."
  312. Would the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) say all of this about Ali, while he behaved cruelly with Fatima?
    Surely the croaks fabricate many a falsehood;
  313. For Ali was exactly the honest and truthful one Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H.) said about.
  314. "Surely Allah is angered when you are angered, and is pleased at your pleasure."
  315. While the He also said to Fatima while holding her hand: "He who knows this, knows her, and he who does not know her; she is part of me, she is my heart and my spirit which is in my side, thus he who harms her harms me."
  316. He also said:  "Fatima is part of me, that which annoys her annoys me, and harms me that which harms her."
  317. "Fatima is part of me, he who angers her angers me."
  318. Allah the Exalted has said: "Verily the Good shall drink of a Cup (of wine) mixed with Kafur. A fountain where the Devotees of God do drink, making it flow in unstinted abundance. They perform (their) vows, and they fear a Day whose evil lies far and wide. And they feed, for the love of God, the indigent, the orphan and the captive. Saying, `We feed you for the sake of God alone; no reward do we desire from you, nor thanks.' `We only fear a Day of distressful Wrath from the side of our Lord.' But God will deliver them from the evil of that day, and will shed over them a light of Beauty and a (blissful) Joy. And because they were patient and constant, He will reward them with a Garden and (garment of) silk. Reclining in the (Garden) on raised thrones, they will see there neither the sun's (excessive heat) nor (the moon's) excessive cold. And the shades of the (Garden) will come low over them, and the bunches (of fruit), there, will hang low in humility. And amongst them will be passed round vessels of silver and goblets of crystal; Crystal clear, made of silver. They will determine the measure thereof (According to their wishes). And they will be given to drink there of a Cup (of wine) mixed with Zanjabil. A fountain there, called Salsabil. And around about them will (serve) youths of perpetual (freshness): if thou seest them, thou wouldst think them scattered Pearls. And when thou lookest, It is there thou wilt see a Bliss and a Realm Magnificent. Upon them will be green garments of fine silk and heavy brocade, and they will be adorned with Bracelets of silver; and their Lord will give to them to drink of a Wine pure and Holy. Verily this is a Reward for you, and your Endeavor is accepted and recognized." (76: 5-22)
    These verses were revealed after Ali, Fatima, Hassan, and Hussain (A.S.) gave charity to needy people; this story is stated in the book Al-Kashaf by Zamakhshari; it goes as follows:
  319. "Ibn Abbas said: `Once Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain (A.S.) were ill, the Messenger of Allah and a group went to visit them. The visitors suggested to Imam Ali (A.S.) to make a vow to Allah: if He were to relieve them, he would perform some good action. Therefore, Imam Ali together with Fatima and their servant Fidhdha vowed to Allah that they would fast for three days if He would relieve Hassan and Hussain.'
  320. 'When Allah had relieved them, Imam Ali (A.S.) borrowed three (3) aswu (a cubic measure) of barley from a Jew known as Shimon. Fatima ground one (1) sa'a (singular of aswu) of the barley and baked five loaves of bread for her family's meal at sunset. As sunset approached, a needy man knocked on the door and said: Assalamu Alaikum, Family of Muhammad. I am a needy man from among the Muslims, feed me, may Allah feed you from the food of Paradise.' The holy family preferred the needy man over themselves and spent the night with nothing in their stomachs save water.'
  321. 'They fasted the second day, and again at sunset, when they were waiting for their food, an orphan asked them for help and they again preferred him over themselves. The third evening a captive (prisoner of war) asked them for help and they repeated their preference for the needy above themselves.'
  322. 'The following morning, Imam Ali (A.S.) took Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain to the Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H.) who said the following when he saw them shaking like little chicks from hunger:
  323. "The Prophet said: It displeases us to see you in this condition.' Then he went with them, for he wanted to see Fatima. When they arrived, Fatima (A.S.) was in the Mehrab (prayer place), and her condition was such that it further displeased the Prophet (P.B.U.H.). At this time, Gabriel descended and said:
  324. `Take this chapter Muhammad, - Allah surely congratulates you for having this family. " It is worthy to state that the Good ones mentioned here are Ali, Fatima, Hassan and Hussain; who deserve Paradise because of their act of feeding the needy, the orphan, and the captive.
  325. Another point to keep in mind here is that despite the detailed description of Paradise given in the verses, Allah, the Exalted, does not mention the huris. This understood to be in honor and exaltation of Fatima (A.S.) the wife of Imam Ali, and the mother of Hassan and Hussain.
  326. The author of the book Bisharat A-Moustafa was quoted by Al-Bihar v.10 to have written: Imam Sadiq (A.S.) quoted Jabir Ibn Abdullah Al-Ansari as saying: "One day when we had finished the Asr prayer with the Messenger of Allah an old Arab immigrant man, who was wearing worn-out clothes and was barely able to walk because of his old age and weakness came by. The Prophet asked the old man about his affair; the old man answered: `Prophet of Allah I am starving, so feed me, I am naked, so clothe me, and poor, so help me The Prophet then said: `Surely I find nothing to give you. Yet, he who guides to goodness is equal to him who performs it. So go to the house of she who loves Allah and His Messenger, and Allah and His Messenger love her. The one who prefers Allah over herself I mean Fatima.'
  327. Fatima's house was near the Prophet's house. He asked Bilal to lead the man to her house. When the old man reached the house, he cried out: `Peace be upon you, O household of prophet hood, the (dwellers of the place where) angels frequently visit, where Gabriel-the holy spirit-descends to bring what the Lord of the Worlds reveals.'
  328. Fatima said: `Peace be upon you; who are you?' The old Beduin answered: `I am an old Arab man; I have immigrated to your father, The Master of mankind, from a distant place. Daughter of Muhammad, I am hungry and in need of clothing, so console me-may Allah bless you.'
  329. When this occurred, the Prophet, Ali, and Fatima had not eaten for three days. Yet, Fatima gave him a tanned ram skin, which was used as Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain's bed.
  330. Then Fatima told the poor man: `Take this, may Allah substitute it for you by a better gift by selling it.'
  331. The old man replied: Daughter of Muhammad, I complain to you of hunger and you give me a ram's skin? How can I eat with this?'
  332. When Fatima heard what the old man had to say, she gave him the necklace, which was given to her by Fatima Bint Hamza Ibn Abd al-Muttalib.
  333. The old man took the necklace and went to the Mosque to meet the Prophet who was sitting in the presence of his companions. He went to the Prophet and said: `Messenger of Allah, Fatima Bint Muhammad gave me this necklace and said: `Sell it, for Allah will grant you a solution to your problem.' When the Prophet heard what the man had to say, he cried and said: `Indeed, Allah will grant you a solution, for Fatima Bint Muhammad, the Mistress of all women gave you this necklace.' Meanwhile, Ammar Ibn Yasir (may Allah bless his soul) said: `Messenger of Allah, do I have your permission to buy this necklace?' The Prophet answered: `Buy it Ammar, surely if all of mankind and Jinn participate in buying it Allah will not torture them in Hellfire.' Ammar said: `How much do you want for it?' The old Beduin said: A meal of bread and meat, a Yemeni shirt to cover my private parts and to perform my prayers in front of my Lord, and a dinar so I can return to my family.' Ammar, who had just sold his share of booty from the battle of Khaibar, told the man: I will give you twenty (20) dinars, two hundred (200) dirhams, a Yemeni shirt, my horse to take you home, and your need of wheat bread and meat.' The old then said: `What a generous man you are!!' When Ammar had fulfilled his promise to the old man, the later came back to the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) who said: Are you satisfied and clothed?' The old man said: Yes, and I have become rich; may my father and mother be your sacrifice.' The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) then said: `So reward Fatima for her kindness.' The old man supplicated: `O Allah, surely You are our God whenever we ask You; `We have no other God to worship besides you; 'You are the one who grants us beneficence in all conditions;' `O Allah, grant Fatima that which no eye has ever seen, and ear has ever heard ....' During that time, Ammar had perfumed the necklace with mush wrapped it in a Yemeni shirt, and gave it to one of his slaves by the name of Sahm, who he had bought with the money that he had received for selling his share of the Khaibarian booty. He told Sahm: `Take this necklace and give it to the Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H.) and tell him that I give you to him also.'
  334. When Sahm had delivered the message, the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) said: `Take the necklace to Fatima and I give you to her also.' When the slave had told Fatima the message, she (A.S.) took the necklace and told the slave that he was free.
  335. Upon hearing Fatima, Sahm laughed, so Fatima asked him about the reason that made him laugh. He answered: `I smiled when I thought of the abundance of goodness put in this necklace; it fed a hungry man, clothed a naked man, satisfied a poor man, freed a slave and came back to its original owner."
  336. The Lady of  Light ,Sayyida Fatima Zahra [a.s] has been quoted explaining the philosophy behind some of the basis tenants of Islam in the following passage:Never become angry with others and do not ask anything from them. Wish for the people whatever you wish for yourself.
  337. If u do not protect your admitted rights u will be like a big bird who falls prey to attacks of small birds in spite of having enough strength .
  338. Usurper of rights is an open enemy who defies all reason .
  339. Who can be more oppresses than a person whose rights are confiscated &he is also not allowed to appeal !
  340. Claiming of your rights from tyrants without having supporters , is falling prey to disgrace .
  341. No rightful person gets his rights in this world without help of a supporter or a companion , can there be injustice bigger than that !
  342. Narreted by Hazrat Fatima a.s After a while Abul Hasan(A.S.), came in and said "Peace be on you, O daughter of The Prophet of Allah." I replied: "And upon you be peace, O Abul Hasan, the Commander of the Faithfulls." He then said: "O Fatima I smell a sweet fragrance and so pure which is like of my Brother and my Cousin, The Holy Prophet of Allah." I replied: "Yes. He is sitting covered underneath that Vestment with both of your sons." Ali(A.S.) then went near to the Vestment and said: "Peace be upon you, O Prophet of Allah; May I enter the Vestment with You?"
  343. He replied: "And upon you be peace, my brother, my legatee, my successor and my standard bearer; I give you permission to enter." So Ali(A.S.) entered under the Vestment with them.
  344. Then I myself approached the group sitting underneath the Vestment and requested. "Peace be onto you, my Father, O Prophet of Allah; do you permit me also to enter." He replied: "And upon you be peace, my daughter, O part of myself, I give you permission to enter." So I myself entered and sat under the Vestment with them all.
  345. When all of us had gathered together covered over and sitting underneath the holy Vestment, my Father, took hold of the two ends of the Vestment and raised his right hand in Prayer towards The Heavens saying,
  346. "Allah, these are The People of my Ahlul-Bayt and very specially my Own and my Protectors.
  347. They are of my own flesh and of my own blood.
  348. Whoever gives them trouble, gives me trouble too;
  349. Whoever makes them unhappy, makes me unhappy too,
  350. I am at war with those who are at war with them,
  351. I am at peace with those who are at peace with them.
  352. I am the enemy of those who are at enemy with them;
  353. I am the friend of those who befriend them.
  354. Indeed they are from me, and I am from them.
  355. Therefore, send Thy blessings, mercy, forgiveness, and pleasure upon me and upon them. Remove all blemish from them and keep away all kinds of impurity from them. "Then Allah The Majestic and The Glorified, spoke to His Angels, Then The Archangel Gabriel, the Trusted One, asked Allah. "O Lord, who are these sitting covered under the Vestment? "Allah, The Majestic, The Glorified, answered, The Archangel Gabriel then requested, "O Lord, may I go down, and be the Sixth of Them? "Allah replied The Archangel Gabriel Al-Ameen, descended down to the Earth and said, "Peace be upon you, O Prophet of Allah. The All Highest conveys His peace on you and His salutation, and He has sworn by His Honor and Glory that He has not created, but the erected Sky, the spread Earth, the illuminated Moon, the bright Sun, the rotating Universe, the flowing Seas, and the sailing Ships but for your sake and your love. God has given me permission to enter and sit with all of you underneath the Vestment.. Do you also grant me that permission, O Prophet of Allah?"
  356.  The Prophet replied, "And upon you be peace, O thou who art the Trusted with The Revelations of Allah; yes I grant you permission to enter."  So The Archangel Gabriel entered and sat beneath the Vestment with us all, and said to my Father that indeed Allah has sent this revelation to you;
  357. "Verily Allah desires to keep away all blemish from you, O Ahlul-Bayt, and to purify you with a perfect purification."
  358. Then Ali (A.S.) asked my father, "O Prophet of Allah what significance does Allah attach to this Event of our sitting gathered together underneath this Vestment?" The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) replied, "I swear by Him who appointed me a Prophet and chose me a confident Messenger, that no assembly,
  359. Wherever this Event is narrated by our followers and devotees, shall remain without the Mercy of Allah descending on them, and encircling Angels as king Allah for the remission of their sins till the assembly has dispersed." Ali (A.S.) then exclaimed, "I swear by Allah the Lord of The Kaba, that we have all succeeded and our all followers have succeeded too."
  360. Again The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) said, "I swear by Him who appointed me a Prophet and chose me a confident Messenger that in any of the assemblies on the Earth, in which our followers and friends have gathered, wherever this Event is narrated there shall remain none grieved, but Allah will remove his grief ; there shall be none distressed, but Allah will dispell his distress, and there shall be none who seeks a wish, but Allah will grant his wish.
  361. Ali (A.S.) then said, "Verily, by Allah, We have succeeded and become happy so also all our followers have succeeded and become happy in this world as well as in the next world by the Lord of The Kaba. O Allah, send Thy Blessings on to Muhammad (S.A.W.) and The Descendents of Muhammad (S.A.W.)."
  362. Hazrat Omer with other people came to the door of Hazrat Zahra with fire and shouted that every one in the house must come out otherwise I will burn this house ( Be reminded that it was the same house on which Holy Prophet used to come for salam , Reference is already quoted  ) Hazrat Zahra ( A.S.) herself came to the door and said Ya Ibn-e- khttaab you want to burn the house though there are Ali and Hasnain inside the house,  he replied let them be .
  363. The door of Hazrat Zahra (A.S.) was put on fire, when Syeda Zahra (A.S.) came to the door, the burning door was dropped on her and with the result  she was badly injured . Allama Moheen while commenting on the event wrote in his book Al-Mallel wal Nahal Shrestani ( P-20) that later the death of Hazrat Zahra (A.S.) was caused due to the injury of  burning door which was dropped on her. 
  364. The people got inside the house of Hazret Zahra  by shouting and destroying every thing, on this Hazrat Zahra came out and said go away from my house otherwise I will pray against you to the God.
  365. Later on the Shaikhain came to the door of Hazrat Zahra and admitted that we have made you angry and wanted to get excused but Hazrat Zahra turned her face away  by saying that till to the last breath I will keep praying against you to the God, on this both went back .
  366.  Hazrat Fatima Zahra Stopped talking to Hazrat Abubakar and Hazrat Ummar and at the time of her death she advised  that both of them are not to be allowed to come to  her Janaza prayer and my body should be buried in the darkness of night. 
  367. Nobody pays heed to supplication of the oppressed except Allah .
  368. Plight of those who listen to untrue things & insist on vice , is deplorable .
  369. If u remain immersed in darkness of sin & calamity , Allah shall confiscate your energies .
  370. Guilty & false people must not misconceive that on the day of resurrection when their scrolls will be read out & all secrets will be exposed , wrath of the Almighty Allah will not surround them .
  371. The Holy prophet of Islam never evaded the Quran , nor did he ever violate pious instincts in life .
  372. Brightest part of conduct & character of the holy prophet of Islam lies in acting according to dictates of the quran & to accept them as code of life .
  373. The  Quran provides a solid & clear constitution which distinguishes oppressed from the  oppressor in principle , thus exact distinction b/w truth & falsehood is only possible through the Quran .
  374. Quran becomes torch of guidance & instruction for those who are lost in gulf of doubt & suspicion .
  375. The day of resurrection is the day of accountability so that an oppressor may get return for his tyranny & the oppressed receive what they deserved .
  376. On the grave of Holy Prophet Hazrat Zahra said . " Oh! my father , after you I faced such a terrible troubles that if they were to be faced by shinning days they would have turned into dark nights. "
  377. No repentance or penitence will be useful on the day of resurrection , evil-doers will stand at a loss & face harm
  378. The oppressor & the oppressed will stand face to face on the day of  resurrection , the Almighty Allah will hold scale of justice & issue His decrees .
  379. Nobody can have any doubt about the fact that The Holy prophet of Islam & Ali , son of Abu Talib (peace be on them ) , possessed full knowledge of facts narrated in the Quran .
  380. It is not at all fit for people who believe in Islam & pronounce themselves as members of islamic community , to shirk from standing by truth & affording succour to the rightful .
  381. Those who do not stand by oppressed in spite of strength & ability , cannot be called followers of traditions of the Holy prophet .
  382. Allah has made "Faith" (iman) the means to purify one from polytheism.
  383. Allah made "Prayer" (namaz) to guard one from arrogance.
  384. He prescribed "Fast" (saum or roza) to strengthen sincere devotion to Allah.
  385.  He prescribed " Pilgrimage "(haj) to elevate the religion.
  386.  He prescribed "Alms" (zakat) to chasten oneself and increase one's sustenance.
  387. It is confirmed historical facts that with rise & glory of islam all signs of polytheism , infidelity & ignorance ceased to exist .But Muslims did not stand for greatness of Islam which resulted in their ruin & loss of grace
  388. People who practically favour infidelity after declaring themselves Muslims , show paganism & hypocrisy after pronouncing faith in Islam , meat grievous end .
  389. “Hazrat Zahra (AS) also used to work at home.
  390. Real men of faith have nothing to be afraid of except fear of the Almighty Allah .
  391. To deprive a deserving person knowingly shows baseness of mind . Allah 's wrath falls on such people .
  392. Fulfil your commitments & wait for the day of accountability .
  393. To oppose the Quranic dieta knowingly & to ignore the Quranic commands willingly invite Allah's displeasure .
  394. And Allah made the prohibition to accuse someone of adultery a protection (shield) for avoiding (His) curse.
  395. And (Allah made) refraining from theft for the sake of positive ness and affirmation for modesty.
  396. And Allah prohibited polytheism for the sake of (bringing about) sincerety in (His) adoration and worship.
  397. Certainly, an apostle has come to you from among yourselves; grievous to him is your falling into distress, excessively solicitous respecting you; to the believers (he is) compassionate, merciful. So if you assay and recognize him you will find he is my father not the father of your women and the brother of my cousin, Ali (A.S.) not that of your men. And how nice a relation I have to him. So he propagated his prophetic (mission). He always used to turn his face from the polytheists.
    And fought against them till he beat them up. He would invite people towards Allah by wisdom, and beautiful admonition. He broke the idols and scattered the aggregation of polytheists in a way that they ran away (from the battle fields), so that finally the hidden secret of oneness of Allah became manifested by him.
    And he made the logic of religion reach the ears ((of the people) and settled down the foam of the camels of satan and turned the salogan yelling of those devils silent. And downed the agents of hypocrisy and mutual commitments of the infidels got dissolved till such time that, you (people) spoke to a group of enlightened and modest men with the words of oneness of Allah and sincerity.
  398. You were on the edge of a fire ditch, and were a cup of drink and the morsal of a greedy one and a firebrand of every hasty one and were being trampled on (by other nations) and drank from the contaminated waters gathered over in ditches and your energy (food) was (secured by) the leaves of trees and desert grass. And for your abjectness and abasement you were always afraid that those arround you might abduct you in the winking of an eye. So, Allah liberated you (of these misfortunes) through my father Mohammed (S.A.W.). In spite of it that he (S.A.W.) was involved and at war against the intrepid and the hungry wolves of Arab and the stubborn refractories of the people of the books (Jews and Christians). Whenever his opponents would lit the fire of war, Allah extinguished it to your benefit.
  399. Commands of the Almighty Allah  are universally applicable & nobody stands exempted .
  400. It is quite sad for people pronouncing Islam as their faith that they adopted paths of hypocrisy after demise of the Holy Prophet of islam & Satan entered their ranks to beguile them .
  401. Response to call of devil means trampling over bright tradition of the holy Prophet .
  402. Imam Hassan (A.S) said, 'on the Friday night I saw my mother (Fatima (A.S.)) standing in her arch of prayer. She was continuously kneeling and performing prostration till the dawn broke. I would hear her pray for the faithful men and women, but she did not at all pray for herself. I said, 'Oh mother why did you not pray for yourself like you prayed for others?' so she replied, 'Oh my son, first thy neighbour and there after your own house.'
  403. The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) said to Fatima (A.S.) what is the thing which is a blessing for woman?'
    She said that, 'she must not see a man (stranger and not intimate) and a man must not see her
  404. One day a lady came to Fatima (A.S.) said 'I have a weak old mother who does not know a few problems about her service (prayers). She has sent me towards you to question you (about them). Thus Fatima(A.S.) answered her (questions). And the number of her queries reached to ten and Fatima (A.S.) replied to all her questions. Then she (the woman got a shamed because of the high number of her questions. And said, 'Oh daughter of the Prophet (S.A.W.), 'I do not put you to more inconvinience than this.'
    Fatima (A.S.) said, 'Ask me what you do not know. Have you ever seen a person who is one day hired to carry a heavy thing to the roof top from ground for an amount (equal to) a thousand dinnars (nearly a hundred thousand miskal (unit of weight) of gold) and he may feel himself tired.'
    She said 'No'. Fatima (A.S.) said, 'I have been hired by Allah to get a wages which if the space between the earth and sky is filled up with pearls still (That wages) would he more than it for each of the questions I may answer you. Therefore, I deserve it that I must not feel tired exhausted
  405. Oh Allah! belittle me in my eyes and glorify and magnify Your station to me. And inspire me (about) Your obedience and the practice which may cause Your pleasure and the shunning and evading from things (matters) which are the cause of Your wrath, oh the most merciful of all! 36.
    Oh Allah! content me with the sustenance you have granted me. And till such time that you keep me alive, hide me and make me sound and prosperous. And forgive me and take pity upon me when I die. (During death process). Oh Allah! do not help me in something that you have not predestined for me. And facilitate the achievement of that thing which you have predestined for me.
  406. Oh Allah! bestow upon my parents and all those persons who have rights of their blessings and beneficences upon me, the best of Your rewards. Oh my Allah, spare me the leisure and respite for the object for which You have created me. And do not let me be busy and involved (absolutely) in my commitments. And do not torment me when I ask forgiveness. And do not deprive me of what I yearn and question you for.
  407. Underlying are the rhymes which Hazrat Zahra (A.S.) recited upon the mourning of Prophet's (S.A.W.) demise. The person who smells the sweet fragrance of the grave of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) so what if he does not smell any other fragrance for long times to come?
    Agonies and anguishes and grief's poured upon me in such a way that had they poured upon days those would have turned into nights. (bleak, dark and bewildering).
  408. The dust of sorrow covered the space of sky and the sun has faded and the bright day turned bleak. The earth has become dark and gooomy after the death of the Prophet (S.A.W.) Woe! Alas! what the earth will have much of Jolting upon being separated and parted from him (S.A.W.).
    It is meritorious and befitting that the east and west of the world may weep upon the parting of Prophet (S.A.W.) and the persons of Muzzir tribe and all of they rest of the Yemen tribes shed tears.
    And the great magnificent mountain of the existence and the hidden and covered Kabaah (House of ALLAH) and its pillars should shed tears.
    Oh the terminator and finaliser of the (series of) prophets! the light of whom is the source of blessing for the worlds inhabitants, Be the salutation and blessings of Allah the desender of Holy Quran upon you.
  409. Following you (Prophet (S.A.W.)) inequities (intrigues and revolts) took shape and variant voices were raised so that if you were present and supervising (things) all these differences and deviations would not have taken place.
    You set off (on the journey of eternity) from among us and now our condition is like the earth which becomes devoid of the beneficial rains. And your nation upset the order and discipline of matters. So be a witness and do not let their matter get out of your sight.

  458. The Prophet then said: 'You have come to us at a time that you have not previously come!'
  459. Fatima said: `Messenger of Allah, what is the angels food near our Lord?' The Messenger of Allah said: `By Him Who holds my soul in His hand, fire has not been lit (in our house) for a whole month; yet, I will teach you five statements which Gabriel taught me.'
  460. She (A.S.) said: `Messenger of Allah, what are these five statements?'
  461. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) said: `O Lord of the First and Last;
  462. O You Possessor of Might, and Strength;
  463. O You Who is Merciful with the poor;
  464. O You most Beneficent, most Merciful. "'
  465. Thereafter Fatima returned and Ali (A.S.) saw her and exclaimed: "May my father and mother be your sacrifice, Fatima; what have you to tell me?"

  472. Allah Who Created you, tried
  473. you before He Created your (flesh);
  474. He found you patient with that which
  475. He tried you with.
  476. We claim that we are your followers,
  477. believing in you, and (believing and) bearing with everything
  478. that has been brought unto us by your father (P.B.U.H.)
  479. and that which his successor brought unto us.
  480. Therefore, we beg you (now that we believe) to make us
  481. join both of them so that we may rejoice at being purified for following you.

  502. and may the blessings and mercy of Allah be upon you and upon your soul and body;
  503. I bear witness that you have perished while fully knowing your Lord.
  504. (I also bear witness) that he who gladdens you, gladdens the Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H.)
  505. he who deserts you, deserts the Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H.)
  506. he who harms you, harms the Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H.)
  507. he who bestows you (with a favor), bestows (a favor) upon the Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H.) and

  509. (This is) because you are "part of him and his spirit which lies in his sides."
  510. Allah, His Messengers and His Apostles are my witnesses that I accept him whom you accept, resent him who you resent;
  511. I exonerate myself to Allah from him who you exonerate yourself to Allah from, him who you be friend, hold as my enemy those who you hold (as your enemies), and dislike him who you dislike.
  512. Allah is the best Witness, the best-anticipated One, best Rewarder, and most Bountiful.
    (It is recommended to pray on behalf of the Prophet and his progeny after this visitation.)
  513. ALL PRAISE IS DUE ALLAH THE LORD OF THE WORLDS .
  514. Burglary is prohibited so that chastity & virtue be safe-guarded & people be saved of breach of trust .
  515. Polytheism was forbidden so that men have faith in  Almighty  Allah as sustainer & openly show their sincerity in this respect .
  516.  It is quoted in v.10 of Bihar that Imam Hussain (A.S.) quoted Imam Hassan (A.S.) as saying: "Once, on a Friday night, I watched my mother, Fatima, pray all night long. She kept making Ruku' and prostrating until dawn. I heard her supplicate for the believers by name; but she did not supplicate for herself, so I asked: `Mother, why don't you supplicate for yourself as you supplicate for others?' She answered: `Son! Prefer your neighbor over yourself. "'
  517. Al-Hassan al-Basri said: "There was not a woman in this Ummah more submitting (to Allah) than Fatima. She used to pray until her feet became swollen."
  518. 'The Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H.) said: "As for my daughter Fatima, she is the mistress of all women; from the beginning of history until the end. She is part of me; she is the light of my eye and the fruit of my heart.' 'Fatima is my spirit, which I hold in me; she is a human huri. Whenever she keeps up prayer in her Mehrab before her Lord, her light illuminates to the angels in Heaven just as a star shines to mankind on Earth. So Allah, Exalted is His name, says to the angels: 'My angels, look at my servant, Fatima, who is the mistress of all my female servants, keeping up prayers before Me. Her limbs shake from fear of Me and she worships Me whole heartedly. Bear witness that I have safeguarded her Shiites (followers) from Hellfire..."'
  519. Aisha told him: "We, the Prophet's wives, were gathered around him when Fatima walked towards us; by Allah her walk is exactly the same as that of the Messenger of Allah when he saw her, he greeted her by saying: `Welcome my daughter.' He then asked her to sit to his right or left. He then whispered something to her that caused her to cry; when he saw her sadness, he whispered something else to her which caused her to laugh.
  520. (When I saw this) I said to her: `The Messenger of Allah bestowed you with a special secret, yet you cry?' When the Prophet left I exclaimed: "What did he whisper to you?"
  521. Fatima answered: `I would not announce the secret of the Messenger of Allah!' After the Prophet's death, I said to her: `I insist on you-by my right over you-to tell me (what he told you)!'
  522. She said: 'Yes, I will tell you now. The first time he whispered to me, he told me that Gabriel used to review the Quran with him once a year, but this year he reviewed it twice. So, he said, I think the time of my departure is near. Therefore, fear Allah and be patient, for I will be a good (person) to proceed you.
  523. ' Fatima added: `so I cried, as you saw. When he noticed my sadness, he once again said to me: 'Fatima, is it not satisfying to you to be the Mistress of believing women (or the Mistress of the women of my Ummah)?"
  524. Prophet said to Fatima: "Is it not satisfying to you to be the Mistress of the women of the world?"
  525. Bihar v.10: Imam Ja'far Ibn Muhammad (A.S.) and Jabir Ibn Abdullah al-Ansari said: "Once the Prophet saw Fatima wearing a cloak of camel skin while grinding (grain) with her hands; and holding her child. Tears came from the Prophet's eyes and he said: 'Daughter! bear with the hardships of this world and later you will enjoy the blessings of the Hereafter.'
  526. Fatima replied: `Messenger of Allah, praise be to Allah for His benefactions and thanks be to Him for his gifts.' (It was then that) Allah revealed: "And soon will the Guardian-Lord give thee (that wherewith) thou shalt be well pleased."
  527. Fallacy & wrong-doing are not our ( Ahl-e-Bait's )conduct  , nor are we habituated to speak unlawful .
  528. Oh men ! Fear Allah & let every action of yours be based on abstinence & piety .
  529. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) then said to Ali: "Come near me."
  530. Ali came near as the Prophet asked; he then held Fatima's hand and put it on his chest for a long time, and held Ali's hand in his other hand.
  531. When the Prophet tried to speak, he was overtaken by tears and was unable to do so. Therefore, Ali, Fatima, Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain cried when they saw him (P.B.U.H.) crying.
  532. Fatima then said: "Messenger of Allah! You have broken my heart and brought sorrow to me with your crying.
  533. You are the Master of all Prophets and the trusted Prophet of your Lord;
  534. You are the beloved Prophet of Allah!
  535. Who do I have for my children after you?
  536. Who do I have to protect me from the humiliation, which will inflict me after you?
  537. Who does Ali, your brother and the helper of your religion, have after you?
  538. Who is to (attend to) Allah's revelation and affair?"
  539. Fatima then broke down crying and embraced him together with Ali, Hassan and Hussain (A.S.).
  540. The Prophet raised his head, and while holding Fatima's hand, he placed it in Ali's hand and said:
  541. Abu Al-Hassan, she is Allah's and His Messenger's, Muhammad, trust to you.
  542. Therefore, keep Allah's and His Messenger's trust by protecting her. Surely I know you will.'
  543. 'Ali, this (Fatima) by Allah, is the Mistress of all women of Paradise; this, by Allah, is (like) Maryam al-Kubra.'
  544. 'By Allah, before I reached this state, I asked Allah (certain things) for you and I, and He surely has given me what I asked.'
  545. 'Ali, Execute that which Fatima commands you to do, for I have commanded her to (perform certain affairs) which Gabriel ordered me to do.
  546. Be informed, Ali that I am satisfied with him who my daughter is satisfied with, so is my Lord and the angels.
  547. Ali, Cursed is he who oppresses her; Cursed is he who usurps her right; Cursed is he who violates her sanctity..."
  548. The Prophet then embraced Fatima (A.S.), kissed her hand and said:
    "May your father be your sacrifice,
  549. Fatima." At that moment, the Messenger of Allah was putting his head on Ali's chest; but his love for Fatima kept driving him to embrace and kiss her repeatedly.
  550. He cried until his tears made his beard and shirt wet.
  551. Imam Hassan and Imam Hussain (A.S.) began crying and kissing his feet; when Imam Ali (A.S.) tried to separate them,
  552. The Prophet said: "Let them smell me and let me smell them;
  553. Let them be near me, surely they will be afflicted with sorrows and difficult problems after me. May Allah curse him who abuses them.' O Allah!! I commend them to your protection and to the protection of the righteous believers."
  554. Meanwhile, Fatima (A.S.) was speaking to her father with a crying voice and saying:
  555. "May my soul be your sacrifice!
  556. May my face prevent harm from your face!
  557. Father, can you not speak a word to me?!
  558. Surely I see the knights of death attacking you fiercely!!
  559. " Allah's Messenger then said: "Daughter, I am leaving you; thus, peace be upon you from me".
  560. Lady Fatima Zahra (A.S.) acted in such a manner when she realized that with the weaknesses, which afflicted her, she could not prevail. So she took refuge in a house in Baqi' near the tombs of martyrs, to cry for her father and complain to him about that which grieved her. Fatima (A.S.) used to visit the great tomb of her father and take handful of the dirt from his grave and smell it then begin weeping. Fatima (A.S.)would then return to her home and cry day and night. The elderly men of Medina came to Imam Ali (A.S.) complaining and said: 'Abu Al-Hassan! Fatima cries day and night so none of us can sleep comfortably. Hence, we demand you to ask her to either cry during the day or the night." Imam Ali (A.S.) replied: "Most gladly"
  561. He then proceeded towards Fatima who was crying; when she saw him approaching, she stopped and Imam Ali (A.S.) said: "Daughter of Allah's Messenger, the elderly men of Medina have asked me to ask you to either cry during the day or the night."
  562. Fatima answered: "Abu Al-Hassan, how short will my stay among them be? And soon I will depart from them. Therefore, by Allah, I join my father-Allah 's Messenger (P.B.U.H.)."
  563. When Imam Ali (A.S.) saw her insistence, he built a house for her behind Baqi' which later became known as "The house of griefs." Thereafter, with every sunrise, Fatima (A.S.) would take Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain to that house and cry until sunset, when Imam Ali (A.S.) would come and bring them back home.
  564. Once, Lady Fatima Zahra (A.S.) longed for the sound of Azhan-the call for prayer-which was performed by Bilal. But Bilal had taken an oath to never perform it again after the Prophet's death; nevertheless, in respect to Fatima's request, he decided to do so. Yet, as soon as Bilal said: 'Allahu Akbar," Fatima (A.S.) remembered the era of her great father (P.B.U.H.) and started weeping, so that when Bilal said:
  565. "I bear witness that Muhammad is His worshipper and Messenger," Fatima took a deep breath and fell unconscious. When Fatima (A.S.) fell, the people requested Bilal to stop Azhan, because they believed that Fatima had died. Now that the voice of rejection seized to reveal that which was in Fatima's heart, the language of tears spoke out for her; and as it is correctly said: "The language of tears, is more painful to the heart and sadder to the eyes"!!
  566. Suwaid Ibn Ghafleh said: "When Fatima was inflicted with her illness, the women of the Muhajireen and Ansar gathered around her and said: `How are you doing, daughter of Allah's Messenger?'
  567. Fatima praised Allah, prayed for her father and said: "I have become, by Allah, to have feelings of resentment for your world, detesting your men;
  568. I have coasted them after testing them, hated them after examining them.
  569. Thus, shameful is the defiling of honor,
  570. Playing after being serious,
  571. Striking the soft rocks,
  572. The slackening of spears,
  573. The foolishness of judgments and the misguidance of wants".
  574. "Evil indeed are (the works) which their souls have sent forward before them (with the result) that Allah's wrath is on them, and in torment will they abide".
  575. Certainly it (Allah's wrath) has control of their affairs, held them responsible (for deserving it), and launched its disagreement on them".
  576. "So, may the unjust ones be done away with, cursed, and damned. Woe unto them!
  577. How they have snatched it away from the foundations of the Message,
  578. The fundamentals of prophet hood and guidance,
  579. The place of descent for the Devoted Spirit, and he who is clever in the affairs of this world and the hereafter? (She means that they usurped Ali's right)
  580. Surely; (their action) is clear loss. Why were they hostile to Abu Al-Hassan?
  581. They took vengeance, by Allah, from him for his unbiased sword,
  582. His carelessness about his death (i.e., his unprecedented courage),
  583. His deadly assaults ,
  584. His severe encounters, and
  585. His anger for the sole sake of Allah,
  586. Exalted is His Name.
  587. "By Allah, had they prevented each other from assuming the reigns of power,
  588. Which Allah's Messenger entrusted to him,
  589. He would have held it and led them smoothly,
  590. He would not have harmed them the size of a thread,
  591. Nor would his followers stammer, (meaning they would have lived in harmony under his rule).
  592. He surely would have delivered them to a spring pure, lush, abundant,
  593. Flowing over its banks yet its sides are not muddy.
  594. He certainly would have brought them back satisfied and advised them secretly and publicly without providing himself with any availing thing.
  595. Nor would he favor himself with the worldly things with any gain, save that which would quench the thirst of the thirsty, and feed the hungry.
  596. Surely the abstinent would have been distinguished from the desirous, and the truthful from the liar.
  597. Had the people of the town believed and feared Allah,
  598. We should indeed have opened out to them (all kinds of) blessings from Heaven and Earth;
  599. But they rejected (the truth), and We brought them to book for their misdeeds.
  600. And the wrongdoers of this generation;
  601. The results of their deeds will soon overtake them (too),
  602. And they will never be able to frustrate (Our Plan)!"
  603. "Indeed.. "Come to see!
  604. "As long as you live, time shall show you amazing events!
  605. "I wish I knew what proof they have for that which they have done?
  606. "On what foundation have they stood?
  607. "On what reliable grip have they held?
  608. "Upon whose progeny have they encroached and spoke against?
  609. "Evil, indeed, is the patron and evil the companion!
  610. "They have exchanged, by Allah, the daring for the tales and the capable for the impotent.
  611. "Thus, away with a people who (mistakenly) believe they are doing well (to themselves);
  612. "For surely, they are the ones who make mischief, but they realize (it) not.
  613. "Woe unto them!
  614. "Is he who guides towards truth more worthy to be followed,
  615. Or the who finds not guidance (himself) unless he is guided?
  616. "What then is the matter with you?
  617. "How do you judge?
  618. "But-upon my life! it has already conceived (meaning that it is too late to do anything).
  619. "So wait until its fruit comes about.
  620. "Then shall ye fill your buckets with pure blood and fatal venom?
  621. "That day the dealers in falsehood will perish!
  622. "And the ones who come to follow shall know the evil which their successors have established!
  623. "Then awaken the aversion in yourselves to your world!
  624. "Prepare your hearts for calamities,
  625. "Adapt yourselves to a sharp sword;
  626. An assault of a tyrant enemy,
  627. An overwhelming commotion, and
  628. Atrocity from oppressors who shall leave your booty worthless,
  629. And your crops unharvested; "Alas!
  630. "What a pity! How will ye be treated?
  631. But indeed it hath been obscured from your sight.
  632. Shall we then compel you to accept it when ye are averse to it?"
  633. Swaid Ibn Ghaflah added: "The women informed their men what Lady Fatima Zahra (A.S.) had said, then a group of men went to her and said: `O you Mistress of all women! Hazrat Abu Al-Hassan mentioned this to us before we made the oath, and gave the promise (to Abu Bakr), then surely we would not have exchanged him (Imam Ali (A.S.)) for anyone else!!!'
  634. Fatima (A.S.) said: Leave me alone! Surely there is not an excuse for you after (I have already) spoken to you; and there shall be no command after (I have seen) your shortcomings. "
  635. When we review Lady Fatima's (A.S.) speech, it becomes clear to us that she blamed the people for accepting Abu Bakr's and Umar's leadership over Imam Ali (A.S.). She also foretold of many calamities, which would take place as a result of this misdeed. Fatima's predictions were true; Umar seized power after Abu Bakr appointed him as his successor to Caliphate. After Umar, Uthman was appointed leader; this started the era of explicit oppression against the Muslims. Imam Ali (A.S.) in his sermon of Shiqshiqiyyah pointed out the course of Caliphate and how it was transferred from one person to another until finally he was appointed leader-virtually by force. He (A.S.) then explained how the same ones who paid allegiance to him turned against his rule, which triggered unrest between the Muslims that had everlasting adverse effects. Imam Ali (A.S.) also added his view on Caliphate and this world, in several eloquent words in this sermon. He (A.S.) said: "By Allah, the son of Abu Quhafa (Abu Bakr) dressed himself with it (the caliphate) and he certainly knew that my position in relation to it was the same as the position of the axis in relation to the hand mill. The floodwater flows down from me and the bird cannot fly unto me. I put a curtain against the Caliphate and kept myself detached from it. Then I began to think whether I should assault or endure calmly the blinding darkness of tribulations wherein the elders are feeled and the young grow old and the true believer acts under strain till he meets Allah (on his death). I found that endurance thereon was wiser. So I adopted patience although there was pricking in the eye and suffocation of my inheritance till the first one went his way but handed over the Caliphate to Ibn Khattab after himself"
  636. Lady Fatima Zahra (A.S.) was calm and patient when the women of the Muhajireen and Ansar came to visit her. Then he quoted Aisha's verse: "My days now are passed on the camel's back (in difficulty), while there were days (of ease) -when I enjoyed the company of Jabir's brother Hayyan.'
  637. "It is strange that during his lifetime he wished to get rid of the Caliphate but he straightened its way for the other after his death.
  638. No doubt these two shared its udders strictly among themselves.
  639. This one put the Caliphate in a tough enclosure where the utterance was haughty and the tough was rough.
  640. Mistakes were in plenty and so also the excuses therefore.
  641. One in contact with it, was like the rider of an unruly camel If he pulled up its rein the very nostril would be slit,
  642. but if he let it loose he would be thrown.
  643. Consequently, by Allah, people got involved in recklessness, wickedness, unsteadfastness, and deviation.
  644. Nevertheless, I remained patient despite the length of period and stiffness of trial,
  645. Till when he went his way (by death),
  646. He put the matter (of Caliphate) in a group and regarded me to be one of them.
  647. But good Heavens! What had I to do with this `consultation'?
  648. Where was any doubt about me with regard to the first of them that I was not considered akin to these ones.
  649. But I remained low when they were low and flew high.
  650. One of them turned against me because of his hatred and the other got inclined the other way due to his in-law relationship and this thing and that thing,
  651. Till the third man of these people stood up with heaving breasts between his dung and fodder.
  652. With him, his cousins also stood up swallowing up Allah's wealth like a camel devouring the foliage of spring,
  653. Till his rope broke down,
  654. His actions finished him and his gluttony brought him down prostrate.
  655. At that moment, the crowd of people frightened me. It advanced towards me from every side like the mane of the hyena so much so that Hassan and Hussain were getting crushed and both the ends of my shoulder garment were torn.
  656. They collected around me like a herd of sheep and goats.
  657. When 1 took up the reins of government,
  658. One party broke away and another turned disobedient while the rest began acting wrongfully as if they had not heard the word of Allah saying: `That abode in the hereafter, We assign it for those who intend not to exalt themselves in the earth, nor (to make) mischief (therein); and the end is (best) for the pious ones.' (28:83)
  659. Yes, by Allah, they had heard it and understood it,
  660. But the world appeared glittering in their eyes and its embellishments seduced them.
  661. Behold, by Him who split the grain (to grow) and created living beings,
  662. If people had not come to me and supporters had not exhausted the argument and if there had been no pledge of Allah with the learned to the effect that they should not acquiesce the gluttony of the oppressor and the hunger of the oppressed,
  663. I would have cast the rope of Caliphate on its own shoulders and would have given the last one the same treatment as the first.
  664. Then you would have seen that in my view this world of yours is no better than the sneezing of a goat."
  665. Imam Ali (A.S.) was surprised to find that his dear wife had left her bed and had started doing the housework; he asked her about it and she replied: "This is the last day of my life.
  666. I want to wash my children's hair and clothes, because they will soon be orphans, without a mother!!"
  667. Imam Ali (A.S.) then asked her about the source of know­ledge of this news (the day of her departure). She (A.S.) told him that she had seen the Messenger of Allah in her dream and he had told her that she was going to join him that night. She then asked Imam Ali (A.S.) to execute her will.
  668. He said:"Instruct me to do anything you wish, daughter of Allah's Messenger." Ali (A.S.) then asked everyone to leave the house and he sat next to her.
  669. Fatima started: "Cousin, you are not accustomed to me being a False-teller, undevoted, or have
  670. I disobeyed you since I have become your companion?"
  671. Ali said: "Allah forbid!! You are more knowing of Allah, more devoted, more pious, and more honorable and more fearing of Allah than (to give me a reason) to reprimand you for disobeying me. Surely it is very painful for me to be separated from you and to lose you; but it is an inevitable destination. By Allah, you have renewed the sorrow I have just encountered with the death of Allah's Messenger; surely your death and departure will be a great calamity, but `to Allah do we belong, and to Him shall we return.' What a painful, bitter and sad calamity. Surely this is a calamity for which there is not consolement, and a disaster for which there is no compensation."
  672. Then they both cried and Imam Ali (A.S.) embraced her head and said: "Instruct me to do anything you wish; you certainly will find me devoted and I will execute everything that you command me to do.
  673. I shall also put your matters over mine."
  674. She (A.S.) said: "May Allah reward you with the best of goodness.
  675. Cousin, firstly I ask you to marry after my death, my niece Umamah; surely she will be to my children as I was. Besides, men cannot do without women."
  676. Fatima (A.S.) then added: "I ask you not to let anyone who did injustice to me to witness my funeral,
  677. For they certainly are enemies of mine,
  678. And the enemy of Allah's Messenger. Also don't give them the chance to pray over me,
  679. Nor to any of their followers. Burry me at night when eyes are rested and sight is put to sleep."
  680. Fatima Bint Muhammad was ready to meet her Lord. She bathed, than lay down in her garment...
  681. She then instructed Asma Bint Umais to wait awhile and then to call her name; if there was no answer, this would mean that she (A.S.) had departed towards her Lord.
  682. Asma waited awhile, then called Fatima's name... but there was no answer; Asma repeated the call: "O daughter of the chosen Muhammad! O daughter of the most honorable of them whom women bore! O daughter of the best of those who have walked on gravel! O daughter of him who was at `A distance of but two bow-lengths or (even) nearer" (a Quranic verse, (53:9)) ...There is no answer... silence overwhelms the house ...Asma then proceeds towards Fatima and finds her dead. At that point, Hassan and Hussain entered and asked: "Where is our mother?" Yet Asma uttered not a word! Hassan and Hussain proceeded towards their mother and found her dead. At this, Hussain turned towards Hassan and said: "May Allah console you for our Mother!"
    Imam Ali (A.S.) was at the Mosque. Hassan and Hussain went to the Mosque and broke the news to their father. As soon as he (A.S.) heard their words, he fell unconscious. When he regained consciousness, he said: "Who will console me now, daughter of Muhammad? You used to console me, so who will take your place now?"
    The Hashimite women were then gathered to receive the news of the great calamity... Yes, the calamity befell them once more, while the blood was still flowing from the wound of losing the Prophet... Medina shakes... Everyone came to console Ali (A.S.) and his two children... Allah is with you, Zahra's children... It was just yesterday that you were inflicted with the death of your great father-the Prophet of Allah-and your new calamity is not any less than that one! But take patience, for this is the will of the Mighty Lord.
  683. All praise belongs to the Almighty God [swt], the Master of the Universe.
  684. Muslims Youths often ask for the reasoning and justification behind some of the aspects of Islamic jurisprudence. Many times, the answers are not very apparent, and they become clear as the human mind evolves with time.
  685. The Lady of Light, Sayyida Fatima Zahra [a] has been quoted explaining the philosophy behind some of the basis tenants of Islam in the following passage:
  686. Allah made the faith for you as purity from polytheism (and infidelity);
  687. And (made) service the cause of your getting distant (purification) from pride (egoism);
  688. And rendered alms for the purity of your soul and expansion of your sustenance;
  689. And rendered fasting for the maintenance and firmness of your sincerity;
  690. And Allah set Hajj for the consolidation and reinforcement of the religion;
  691. Allah executed and rendered justice for the sake of putting together and harmonization of the hearts;
  692. And (Allah set) the subordination and obedience of us (the household of the Prophet [s]) for the security of society's system, and our Imamate as a safety from segregation and disunity;
  693. And (Allah made) Jihad, the honor and glory for Islam and abjectness and humbleness for the infidels and the hypocrites;
  694. And (Allah rendered) patience as help for getting reward;
  695. And (Allah caused) commanding goodness and forbidding evil for the amendment and correction of society and the common folks (public);
  696. And (Allah made) the kindness to parents as a protection (shield) to His wrath and displeasure;
  697. And Allah made joining and connecting with the kinship and cognation, the cause of lengthening of life;
  698. And Allah made law of retaliation (revenge for homicide) as the security of blood (from being shed);
  699. And (Allah rendered) prohibition from drinking wine the cause of taking distance from contaminations (evil);
  700. Allah made belief to be purification for you from polytheism.
  701. He made: Prayer - An exaltation for you from conceit.
  702. Alms - A purification for the soul and a (cause of) growth in subsistence.
  703. Fasting - An implantation of devotion.
  704. Pilgrimage - A construction of religion.
  705. Justice - A harmony of the hearts.
  706. Obeying us (Ahlul-Bayt) Management of the nation.
  707. Our leadership (Ahlul-Bayt). Safeguard from disunity.
  708. Jihad (struggle) - A strengthening of Islam.
  709. Patience - A helping course for deserving (divine) reward.
  710. Ordering goodness (Amr Bi Maruf) Public welfare.
  711. Kindness to the parents - A safeguard from wrath.
  712. Maintaining close relations with one’s kin-A cause for a longer life and multiplying the number of descendants.
  713. Retaliation (Qesas) -For sparing blood (souls).
  714. Fulfillment of vows - subjecting oneself to mercy.
  715. Completion of weights and measures - A cause for preventing the neglect of others’ rights.
  716. Forbiddance of drinking wine - An exaltation from atrocity.
  717. Avoiding slander - A veil from curse.
  718. Abandoning theft-a reason for deserving chastity.
  719. Allah has also prohibited polytheism so that one can devote himself to His Lordship.
  720. Therefore; Fear Allah as He should be feared, and die not except in a state of Islam;
  721. Obey Allah in that which He has commanded you to do and that which He has forbidden, for surely those truly fear among His servants, who have knowledge.
  722. FATIMA’S PROTEST AGAINST ABU BAKR’S ACTIONS
    Fatima (S.A.) felt grieved by Abu Bakr’s actions, and was so displeased with him that when she knew of his attempt to seize Fadak, she accompanied a group of women to the mosque. There she sat down and delivered the following speech:

    " Praise be to Allah for that which He bestowed (upon us); And thanks be to Him for all that which He inspired; and commended in His Name for that which He Provided: Form prevalent favors which He created, And abundant benefactions which He offered and perfect grants which He presented; (such benefactions) that their number is much too plentiful to compute; Bounties too vast to measure; Their limit was too distant to realize;
    He recommended to them (His creatures) to gain more (of His benefaction) by being grateful for their continuity; He ordained Himself praiseworthy by giving generously to His creatures;
    I bear witness that there is no God but Allah Who is One without partner, a statement which sincere devotion is made to be its interpretation;
    hearts guarantee its continuation, and illuminated in the minds is its sensibility. He Who can not be perceived with vision; neither be described with tongues; nor can imagination surround His state.

    He originated things but not from anything that existed before them, and created them without examples to follow. Rather, He created them with His might and dispersed them according to His will; not for a need did He create them; nor for a benefit (for Him) did He shape them, But to establish His wisdom, Bring attention to His obedience, manifest His might, lead His creatures to humbly venerate Him, and to exalt His decrees. He then made the reward for His obedience, And punishment for his disobedience, so as to protect His creatures from His Wrath and amass them into His Paradise.

    I too bear witness that my Father, Muhammad, is His Slave and Messenger, Whom He chose prior to sending him, named him before sending him; when creatures were still concealed in that which was transcendental, guarded from that which was appalling and associated with the termination and nonexistence. For Allah the Exalted knew that which was to follow, comprehended that which will come to pass, And realized the place of every event.

    Allah has sent him (Muhammad) (S.A.W.) as perfection for His commands, a resolution to accomplish His rule, and an implementation of the decrees of His Mercy. So he found the nations to vary in their faiths; Obsessed by their fires, Worshipping their idols, And denying Allah despite their knowledge of Him. Therefore, Allah illuminated their darkness with my Father, Muhammad, (S.A.W.) uncovered obscurity from their hearts, and cleared the clouds from their insights. He revealed guidance among the people; So he delivered them from being led astray, led them away from misguidance, guided them to the proper religion, and called them to the straight path.

    Allah then chose to recall him back in mercy, love and preference. So, Muhammad (S.A.W.) is in comfort from the burden of this world, he is surrounded with devoted angels, the satisfaction of the Merciful Lord, and the nearness of the powerful King. So may the praise of Allah be upon my Father, His Prophet, Trusted one, the chosen one from among His creatures, and His sincere friend, and may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.

    (Fatima then turned to the crowd and said:)

    Surely you are Allah’s slaves at His command Prohibition; You are the bearers of His religion and revelation; You are Allah’s trusted ones with yourselves; and His messengers to the nations.
    Amongst you does He have righteous authority;
    A covenant He brought unto you, and an heir He left to guard you; That is The eloquent book of Allah; The truthful Quran; The brilliant light; The shining beam; Its insights are indisputable; Its secrets are revealed; Its indications are manifest; and its followers are blessed by it. (The Quran) leads its adherents to goodwill; and Hearing it leads to salvation; with it are the bright divine authorities achieved, His manifest determination acquired, His prohibited decrees avoided; His manifest evidence recognized, His satisfying proofs made apparent, His permissions granted, and His laws written. So Allah made belief to be purification for you from polytheism.
    He made:
    Prayer - An exaltation for you from conceit.
    Alms - A purification for the soul and a (cause of) growth in subsistence.
    Fasting - An implantation of devotion.
    Pilgrimage - A construction of religion.
    Justice - A harmony of the hearts;
    Obeying us (Ahlul-Bayt) Management of the nation.
    Our leadership (Ahlul-Bayt). Safeguard from disunity.
    Jihad (struggle) - A strengthening of Islam.
    Patience - A helping course for deserving (divine) reward.
    Ordering goodness (Amr Bi Maruf) Public welfare.
    Kindness to the parents - A safeguard from wrath.
    Maintaining close relations with one’s kin-A cause for a longer life and multiplying the number of descendants.
    Retaliation (Qesas) -For sparing blood (souls).
    Fulfillment of vows - subjecting oneself to mercy.
    Completion of weights and measures - A cause for preventing the neglect of others’ rights.
    Forbiddance of drinking wine - An exaltation from atrocity.
    Avoiding slander - A veil from curse.
    Abandoning theft-a reason for deserveing chastity.
    Allah has also prohibited polytheism so that one can devote himself to His Lordship.
    Therefore;
    Fear Allah as He should be feared, and die not except in a state of Islam;
    Obey Allah in that which He has commanded you to do and that which He has forbidden, for surely those truly fear among His servants, who have knowledge.
  723. Lady Fatima Zahra (S.A.) then added:

    0 People! Be informed that I am Fatima, and my father is Muhammad (S.A.W.) I say that repeatedly and initiate it continually; I say not what I say mistakenly, nor do I do what I do aimlessly. Now hath come unto you an Apostle from amongst yourselves; It grieves him that you should perish;

    Ardently anxious is he over you; To the believers he is most kind and merciful.

    Thus, if you identify and recognize him, you shall realize that he is my father and not the father of any of your women; the brother of my cousin (Ali) (A.S.) rather than any of your men. What an excellent identity he was, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him and his descendants.

    Thus, he propagated the Message, by coming out openly with the warning and while inclined away from the path of the polytheists, (whom he) struck their strength and seized their throats, while he invited (all) to the way of his Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching;

    He destroyed idols, and defeated heroes, until their group fled and turned their backs.

    So night revealed its dawn; righteousness uncovered its genuineness; the voice of the religious authority spoke out loud; the evil discords were silenced; The crown of hypocrisy was diminished; the tightening of infidelity and desertion were untied, So you spoke the statement of devotion amongst a band of starved ones; and you were on the edge of a hole of fire; (you were) the drink of the thirsty one; the opportunity of the desiring one; the fire brand of him who passes in haste; the step for feet; you used to drink from the water gathered on roads; eat jerked meat.

    (Lady Fatima (S.A.) was stating their lowly situation before Islam)

    You were despised outcasts always in fear of abduction from those around you. Yet, Allah rescued you through my father, Muhammad (S.A.W.) after much ado, and after he was confronted by mighty men, the Arab beasts, and the demons of the people of the Book Who, whenever they ignited the fire of war, Allah extinguished it; and whenever the thorn of the devil appeared, or a mouth of the polytheists opened wide in defiance, he (S.A.W.) would strike its discords with his brother (Ali) (A.S.), who comes not back until he treads its wing with the sole of his feet, and extinguishes its flames with his sword.

    (Ali is) diligent in Allah’s affair, near to the Messenger of Allah, A master among Allah’s worshippers, setting to work briskly, sincere in his advice, earnest and exerting himself (in service to Islam);

    While you were calm, gay, and feeling safe in your comfortable lives, waiting for us to meet disasters, awaiting the spread of news, you fell back during every battle, and took to your heels at times of fighting. Yet, When Allah chose His Prophet from the dwell of His prophets, and the abode of His sincere (servants); The thorns of hypocrisy appeared on you, the garment of faith became worn out, The misguided ignorant spoke out, the sluggish ignorant came to the front and brayed. The he camel of the vain wiggled his tail in your courtyards and the your courtyards and the Devil stuck his head from its place of hiding and called upon you, he found you responsive to his invitation, and observing his deceits. He then aroused you and found you quick (to answer him), and invited you to wrath, therefore; you branded other than your camels and proceeded to other than your drinking places. Then while the era of the Prophet was still near, the gash was still wide, the scar had not yet healed, and the Messenger was not yet buried.

    A (quick) undertaking as you claimed, aimed at preventing discord (trial), Surely, they have fallen into trial already! And indeed Hell surrounds the unbelievers. How preposterous! What an idea! What a falsehood! For Allah’s Book is still amongst you, its affairs are apparent; its rules are manifest; its signs are dazzling; its restrictions are visible, and its commands are evident. Yet, indeed you have casted it behind your backs! What!

    Do you detest it? Or according to something else you wish to rule? Evil would be the exchange for the wrongdoers! And if anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah), it never will it be accepted from him; And in the hereafter, he will be in the ranks of those who have lost. Surely you have not waited until its stampede seized, and it became obedient. You then started arousing its flames, instigating its coal, complying with the call of the misled devil, quenching the light of the manifest religion, and extinguished the light of the sincere Prophet. You concealed sips on froth and proceeded towards his (the Prophet) kin and children in swamps and forests (meaning you plot against them in deceitful ways), but we are patient with you as if we are being notched with knives and stung by spearheads in our abdomens, Yet-now you claim-that there is not inheritance for us!

    What! "Do they then seek after a judgment of (the Days of) ignorance?

    But How, for a people whose faith is assured, can give better judgment than Allah? Don’t you know? Yes, indeed it is obvious to you that I am his daughter. O Muslims!
    Will my inheritance be usurped? O son of Abu Quhafa! Where is it in the Book of Allah that you inherit your father and I do not inherit mine?
    Surely you have come up with an unprecedented thing. Do you intentionally abandon the Book of Allah and cast it behind your back? Do you not read where it says:
    ‘And Sulaiman inherited Dawood’? And when it na,rates the story of Zakariya and says:
    ‘So give me an heir as from thyself; (One that) will inherit me, and inherit the posterity of Yaqoob’
    And:
    ‘But kindred by hood have prior rights against each other in the Book of Allah’
    And:
    ‘Allah (thus) directs you as regards your children’s (inheritance) to the male, a portion equal to that of two females’
    And:
    '...If he leaves any goods, that he make a bequest to parents and next of kin, according to reasonable usage; this is due from the pious ones.’ You claim that I have no share! And that I do not inherit my father! What! Did Allah reveal a (Quranic) verse regarding you, from which He excluded my father? Or do you say:

    ‘These (Fatima and her father) are the people of two faiths, they do not inherit each other?’ Are we not, me and my father, a people adhering to one faith? Or is it that you have more knowledge about the specifications and generalizations of the Quran than my father and my cousin (Imam Ali)? So, here you are! Take it! (Ready with) its nose rope and saddled! But if shall encounter you on the Day of Gathering; (thus) what a wonderful judge is Allah, a claimant is Muhammad, and a day is the Day of Rising.
    At the time of the Hour shall the wrongdoers lose; and it shall not benefit you to regret (your actions) then! For every Message, there is a time limit and soon shall you know who will be inflicted with torture that will humiliate him, and who will be confronted by an everlasting punishment.
  724. (Fatima then turned towards the Ansars and said:)

    O you people of intellect! The strong supporters of the nation! And those who embraced Islam; What is this short-coming in defending my right? And what is this slumber (while you see) injustice (being done toward me)?
    Did not the Messenger of Allah (S.A.W.) my father, used to say:
    ‘A man is upheld (remembered) by his children’?
    O how quick have you violated (his orders)?!
    How soon have you plotted against us? But you still are capable (of helping me in) my attempt, and powerful (to help me) in that which I request and (in) my pursuit (of it). Or do you say:
    "Muhammad (S.A.W.) has perished;" Surely this is a great calamity; Its damage is excessive its injury is great, Its wound (is much too deep) to heal.

    The Earth became darkened with his departure; the stars eclipsed for his calamity; hopes were seized; mountains submitted; sanctity was violated, and holiness was encroached upon after his death. Therefore, this, by Allah, is the great affliction, and the grand calamity; there is not an affliction which is the like of it; nor will there be a sudden misfortune (as surprising as this).

    The Book of Allah-excellent in praising him-announced in the courtyards (of your houses) in the place where you spend your evenings and mornings; A call, A cry, A recitation, and (verses) in order:
    It had previously came upon His (Allah’s) Prophets and Messengers; (for it is) A decree final, and a predestination fulfilled:

    "Muhammad is not but an Apostle:

    Many were the apostles that passed away before him. If he died or was slain, will ye then turn back on your heels? If any did turn back on his heel, not the least harm will he do to Allah, but Allah (on the other hand) will swiftly reward those who (serve Him) with gratitude."

    O you people of reflection; will I be usurped the inheritance of my father while you hear and see me?! (And while) You are sitting and gathered around me? You hear my call, and are included in the (news of the) affair?

    (But) You are numerous and well equipped! (You have) the means and the power, and the weapons and the shields. Yet, the call reaches you but you do not answer; the cry comes to you but you do not come to help? (This) While you are characterized by struggle, known for goodness and welfare, the selected group (which was chosen), and the best ones chosen by the Messenger (S.A.W.) for us, Ahlul-Bayt. You fought the Arabs, bore with pain and exhaustion, struggled against the nations, and resisted their heroes.

    We were still, so were you in ordering you, and you in obeying us. So that Islam became triumphant, the accomplishment of the days came near, the fort of polytheism was subjected, the outburst of fabrication subsided, the flames of infidelity calmed down, and the system of religion was well-ordered. Thus, (why have you) become confused after clearness? Conceal matters after announcing them? Turned on your heels after daring? Associated (others with Allah) after believing?

    Will you not fight people who violated their oaths? Plotted to expel the Apostle and became aggressive by being the first (to assault) you?

    Do ye fear them? Nay, it is Allah whom you should more justly fear, if you believe! Nevertheless, I see that you are inclined to easy living; dismissed he who is more worthy of guardianship (Ali) (A.S.); you secluded yourselves with meekness and dismissed that which you accepted. Yet, if you show ingratitude, you and all on earth together, yet, Allah free of all wants worthy of all praise. Surely I have said all that I have said with full knowledge that you intent to forsake me, and knowing the betrayal which your hearts sensed. But, it is the state of soul, the effusion of fury, the dissemination of (what is) the chest and the presentation of the proof Hence, Here it is!

    Bag it (leadership and) put it on the back of an ill she-camel, which has a thin hump, with everlasting grace, marked with the wrath of Allah, and the blame of ever (which leads to) the Fire of (the wrath of) Allah kindled (to a blaze), that which doth mount (right) to the hearts; For, Allah witnesses what you do, and soon will the unjust assailants know what vicissitudes their affairs will take!! And I am the daughter of a Warner (the Prophet) (S.A.W.) to you against a severe punishment. So, act and so will we, and wait, and we shall wait."
  725. (The end of Lady Fatima’s speech.)

    It appears from recorded historical events, that Lady Fatima (S.A.) was successful at the beginning in persuading Abu Bakr to hand back Fadak to her; listen to part of a speech he (according to some historians) delivered after hearing Fatima’s speech. He said:

    "O daughter of the Messenger of Allah... Surely the Prophet is your father, not anyone else’s, the brother of your husband, not any other man ‘s; he surely preferred him over all his friends and (Ali) supported him in every important matter, no one loves you save the lucky and no one hates you save the wretched. You are the blessed progeny of Allah’s Messenger, the chosen ones, our guides to goodness, our path to Paradise, and you-the best of women-and the daughter of the best of prophets, truthful is your sayings, excelling in reason. You shall not be driven back from your right...But I surely heard your father saying: ‘We the group of prophets do not inherit, nor are we inherited. Yet, this is my situation and property, it is yours (if you wish); it shall not be concealed from you, nor will it be stored away from you. You are the Mistress of your father’s nation, and the blessed tree of your descendants. Your property shall not be usurped against your will, nor can your name be defamed. Your judgment shall be executed in all that which I possess. This, do you think that I violate your father’s (will) ?"

    Fatima then refuted Abu Bakr’s claim that the Prophet (S.A.W.) had stated that prophets couldn’t be inherited, and said:

    "Glory be to Allah!!
    Surely Allah’s Messenger (S.A.W.) did not abandon Allah’s Book nor did he violate His commands. Rather, he followed its decrees and adhered to its chapters. So do you unite with treachery justifying your acts with fabrications? Indeed this-after his departure-is similar to the disasters which were plotted against him during his lifetime. But behold! This is Allah’s Book, a just judge and a decisive speaker, saying:
    ‘One that will (truly) inherit Me, and inherit the posterity of Yaqub,’ and ‘and Sulaiman inherited Dawood.’
    Thus, He (Glory be to Him) made clear that which He made share of all heirs, decreed from the amounts of inheritance, allowed for males and females, and eradicated all doubts and ambiguities (pertaining to this issue which existed with the) bygones.
    Nay!
    But your minds have made up a tale (that may pass) with you, but (for me) patience is most fitting against that which you assert; it is Allah (alone) whose help can be sought."
    It is apparent that Abu Bakr chanced the mode with which he addressed Lady Fatima (S.A.) after delivering her speech. Listen to his following speech; which is his reply to Fatima’s just reported speech.
    Abu Bakr said:
    "Surely Allah and His Apostle are truthful, and so has his (the Prophet’s) daughter told the truth. Surely you are the source of wisdom, the element of faith, and the sole authority. May Allah not refute your righteous argument, nor invalidate your decisive speech. But these are the Muslims between us-who have entrusted me with leadership, and it was according to their satisfaction that I received what I have. I am not being arrogant, autocratic, or selfish, and they are my witnesses."

    Upon hearing Abu Bakr speak of the people’s support for him, Lady Fatima Zahra (S.A.) turned towards them and said:
    "O people, Who rush towards uttering falsehood and are indifferent to disgraceful and losing actions!

    Do you not earnestly seek to reflect upon the Quran, or are your hearts isolated with locks? But on your hearts is the stain of the evil which you committed; it has seized your hearing and your sight, evil is that which you justified, cursed is that which you reckoned, and wicked is what you have taken for an exchange! You shall, by Allah, find bearing it (to be a great) burden, and its consequence disastrous. (That is) on the day when the cover is removed and appears to you what is behind it of wrath. When you will be confronted by Allah with that which you could never have expected, there will perish, there and then, those who stood on falsehoods."

    Although parts of Abu Bakr’s speeches can not be verified with authentic evidence, and despite the fact that we have already mentioned part of the actual speech which Abu Bakr delivered after Lady Fatima’s arguments, it appears certain that Abu Bakr was finally persuaded to submit Fadak to her.

    Nevertheless, when Fatima was leaving Abu Bakr’s house, Umar suddenly appeared and exclaimed:
    "What is it that you hold in your hand?"
    Abu Bakr replied: "A decree I have written for Fatima in which I assigned Fadak and her father’s inheritance to her."
    Umar then said: "With what will you spend on the Muslims if the Arabs decide to fight you?!"
    Umar then seized the decree and tore it up!.
  726. After Fatima's visit with women and then the men, which resulted in an emotional revolution in the hearts of the Muslims, Abu Bakr and Umar decided to visit the Mistress of women and try to achieve her contentment with them. The story was reported in 'I'lal Al-Sharaye' as follows: When Fatima (A.S.) was suffering from her fatal illness, Abu Bakr and Umar came to visit her. They asked for permission to enter, but she refused to see them. Upon this, Abu Bakr vowed not to enter any house until he saw Fatima and asked her to forgive him. Abu Bakr, because of his oath, was forced to spend that night in the cold with no cover. Umar then went to Ali (A.S.) and addressed him by saying: "More than once we have come to see Fatima so as to ask for requital, but she refuses to grant us permission to enter. If you see to it, you can get us permission from her to talk to her." He (Imam Ali (A.S.)) said: "I surely will."
  727. Imam Ali then entered the house and said to Fatima (A.S.): "Daughter of Allah's Messenger, you have seen what these two men have done. They have repeatedly come to see you, but you have not given them permission to enter, now they have asked me to ask you to give them that permission."
  728. She said: "By Allah, I shall not give them permission, nor will I speak a word to them until I meet my father and complain to him about that which they have done and committed against me."
  729. Ali then said; "But I have assured them that I will (acquire your permission)." Now Fatima replied: "Now that you have assured them of something,
  730. The house is yours, and women follow men (in their commands);
  731. I shall not disagree with you in anything,
  732. So allow whoever you wish (to enter the house)."
  733. When Ali heard Fatima's reply, he (A.S.) left the house and gave permission to enter. The two men entered the house; when they saw Fatima (A.S.) they submitted their greetings to her, but she did not reply, only turned her face away from them; in turn, they followed her face and she constantly turned away from them. The two parties repeated this action several times until Fatima (A.S.) said:
  734. 'Ali cover me with your garment;"
  735. She then said to some women who were present: "Turnme towards them!!"
  736. When this was done, Abu Bakr said: "Daughter of Allah's Messenger, we have only come to you in an attempt to achieve your satisfaction and avoid your wrath; we ask you to requite and forgive us for the misdeed which we have committed against you."
    Fatima said: "I shall not speak a word to either of you until I meet my Lord and complain to Him about you.
  737. I shall then complain about your actions and everything which you have committed against me."
  738. Fatima then turned towards Ali and said: "I shall not speak to them until I ask them about something which they heard from Allah's Messenger.
  739. If they tell the truth regarding it, then I will decide to speak to them or not."
  740. They said: "By Allah, she has the right to do so. Besides, we only speak that which is right and testify to that which is true." She said: "I ask you by Allah, do you remember when the Messenger of Allah called you out in the middle of the night regarding a matter which came up with Ali?"
  741. They answered: "Yes, By Allah." Fatima then said: "I ask you by Allah, did you hear him say: 'Fatima is part of me and I am from her;
  742. He who offends me offends Allah.
  743. He who offends her after my death is the same as he who offends her during my life;
  744. And he who offends her during my life is the same as he who offends her after my death'?'
  745. They both answered: "Yes, by Allah, we remember." She (A.S.) said: "Praise be to Allah. O Allah, I hold you witness, so you who are present testify to this; surely they have offended me when I am living and after my death.
  746. By Allah, I shall not speak a word to you until I meet my Lord and complain to Him about you and that which you have inflicted me with."
  747. When Abu Bakr heard this, he wailed and burst in loud laments and said: "I wish that my mother had not bore me" Umar said: "It is strange how people appointed you as guardian of their affairs while you are not but a foolish old man!! You become anxious at a woman's anger and you rejoice at her satisfaction. What is wrong with he who angers a woman?" They then left the house.
    Commenting on this story Sayid Qazwini writes: "There was no need for Abu Bakr to wail and apologize when he had the opportunity to amend his mistakes, nor was there a reason for him to burst into loud laments when he had the chance to return her estate to her. But surely the Caliph wished to achieve Lady Fatima's satisfaction at the same time he was keeping her property and rights usurped."
  748. If men had true in faith in the holy Prophet & had regarded him with due respect & greatness , they must have had ardent love & respect for us ( the Ahl-e-Bait ) .
  749. There can be no bigger longing than to have the honour of seeing the holy Prophet after leaving this world .
  750. It is our custom to accept in best faith commands of Allah & the Holy Prophet .
  751. The grace & dignity of women-folk lies in not looking at the bodies of men .Similarly the nobility of men demands that they must not cast glances on bodies of women .
  752. We are recognized for seeking the hereafter & abstaining from this physical world of desires .
  753. My great father  ( the holy Prophet ) has pronounced that a true believer in Allah & His Prophet never causes inconvenience to his neighbor .
  754. Allah fixed the reward for His obedience and torment for His insubordination and disobedience so that He may restrain His servants from His wrath and fury and lead them to His paradise.
  755. And I testify that my father Mohammad (S.A.W.) is the apostle and the servant of Allah. And Allah selected and chose him before appointing him at the post of Prophet hood. And He named him before choosing and selecting him. And chose him before envoying and delegating him. Then all the creations were hidden and covered in the covers of unseen and were hidden amid the screen and curtain of fear and fright and stayed near the last and final border of non entity (nothingness) for Allah was aware of and knew the end of matters and because of His encompassing the incidents of times and ages and His knowledge of the predestinates. Allah appointed him (as apostle) so that he may complete and finalize His matter and Implement His order and materialize His decreeds and predestinates.
  756. Allah saw nations and groups had various different sects in their religion and scattered and staying on the verge of the fires of differences, busy with the their idol worshipping. They denied God with all the signs and symbols of HIM. (IRFAN) So Allah illuminated the dark nesses through my father Mohammad (S.A.W.) and removed the dark nesses from their hearts, removed (cured) the blindness of the eyes
  757. Hospitality is a pious attitude ordained by the holy Prophet  for every man faith .
  758. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) then said to Ali: "Come near me."
  759. Ali came near as the Prophet asked; he then held Fatima's hand and put it on his chest for a long time, and held Ali's hand in his other hand.
  760. When the Prophet tried to speak, he was overtaken by tears and was unable to do so. Therefore, Ali, Fatima, Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain cried when they saw him (P.B.U.H.) crying.
  761. Fatima then said: "Messenger of Allah! You have broken my heart and brought sorrow to me with your crying. You are the Master of all Prophets and the trusted Prophet of your Lord; you are the beloved Prophet of Allah! Who do I have for my children after you? Who do I have to protect me from the humiliation, which will inflict me after you?
  762. Who does Ali, your brother and the helper of your religion, have after you? Who is to (attend to) Allah's revelation and affair?"
    Fatima then broke down crying and embraced him together with Ali, Hassan and Hussain (A.S.).
  763. The Prophet raised his head, and while holding Fatima's hand, he placed it in Ali's hand and said:
  764. Abu Al-Hassan, she is Allah's and His Messenger's, Muhammad, trust to you. Therefore, keep Allah's and His Messenger's trust by protecting her. Surely I know you will.'
  765. 'Ali, this (Fatima) by Allah, is the Mistress of all women of Paradise; this, by Allah, is (like) Maryam al-Kubra.' 'By Allah, before I reached this state, I asked Allah (certain things) for you and I, and He surely has given me what I asked.'
  766. 'Ali, Execute that which Fatima commands you to do, for I have commanded her to (perform certain affairs) which Gabriel ordered me to do.
  767. Be informed, Ali that I am satisfied with him who my daughter is satisfied with, so is my Lord and the angels.
  768. Ali, Cursed is he who oppresses her;
  769. Cursed is he who usurps her right;
  770. Cursed is he who violates her sanctity..."
  771. The Prophet then embraced Fatima (A.S.), kissed her hand and said: "May your father be your sacrifice, Fatima." At that moment, the Messenger of Allah was putting his head on Ali's chest; but his love for Fatima kept driving him to embrace and kiss her repeatedly. He cried until his tears made his beard and shirt wet.
  772. Imam Hassan and Imam Hussain (A.S.) began crying and kissing his feet; when Imam Ali (A.S.) tried to separate them, the Prophet said: "Let them smell me and let me smell them; Let them be near me, surely they will be afflicted with sorrows and difficult problems after me. May Allah curse him who abuses them.' O Allah!! I commend them to your protection and to the protection of the righteous believers." Meanwhile, Fatima (A.S.) was speaking to her father with a crying voice and saying: "May my soul be your sacrifice! May my face prevent harm from your face! Father, can you not speak a word to me?! Surely I see the knights of death attacking you fiercely!!" Allah's Messenger then said: "Daughter, I am leaving you; thus, peace be upon you from me".
  773. Ali (P.B.U.H.) said: "I heard the Prophet say: "On the Day of Rising, a caller shall announce from beyond the veil: "O gathered people, lower your eyes so that Fatima, the Daughter of Muhammad, may pass."
  774. Ali (A.S.) reported that the Prophet said: "On the Day of Rising, a caller shall call from the sole of the Throne:
  775. "O people of Resurrection, cast your eyes down, so that Fatima Bint Muhammad may pass-while holding Al-Hussain's shirt, which will (still) be saturated with blood.' She will then embrace the leg of the Throne and say:
  776. "O (Allah), You are the Omnipotent and Just; pass the judgment between me and those who killed my son." (The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) added): "Then He shall judge according to my Sunnah, by the Lord of Kaaba, Fatima will then say:
  777. "O Allah! grant me intercedence for everyone who cried for his disaster; Allah will then grant her intercedence for them."
  778. "The Messenger of Allah said: A caller shall call from the sole of the Throne: O gathered people, lower your heads and cast your eyes down so that Fatima Bint Muhammad may pass on the Path. ' He added: `She then passes accompanied by seventy thousand Huri Al-Een, as if they were a flashing light."
  779. Jaber Ibn Abdullah Ansari said: "I said to Abu Ja'far (Al-Baqir (A.S.)): `May I be your sacrifice son of Allah's Messenger; narrate to me a hadith in regard to the noble traits of your grandmother Fatima, so that if I report it to your Shiites (followers), they would rejoice at (hearing) it!' Abu Ja'far (A.S.) said: `My father told me that my grandfather reported that Allah's Messenger said: "On the Day of Rising, Minbars of light shall be erected for the prophets and messengers, of which my Minbar shall be the highest among all Minbars on that day. Allah will then say: Deliver a speech,' so I will deliver a speech that none of the prophets or messengers have ever heard. Then for the successors (of prophets) shall be erected Minbars of light, and in the middle of these Minbars one shall be erected for my successor, Ali Ibn Abu Talib, which will be higher than all their Minbars. Allah will then say:
  780. "Ali, deliver a speech.' So he will deliver a speech like no successor has ever heard before. Then for the children of the prophets and messengers shall be erected Minbars of light; among them shall be a Minber of light for my two sons, grandsons and the two flowers of my life (Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain). Then it shall be said to them: "Deliver speeches." So they will deliver two speeches like none of the children of the prophets and messengers have ever heard before!
  781. "A caller-Gabriel-shall then call: `Where is Fatima Bint Muhammad?' She (A.S.) will rise..." (until he said): 'Allah, the blessed and exalted is His Name, shall say: `O people of the gathering; to whom does honor belong today?' So Muhammad, Ali, Hassan and Al-Hussain (A.S.) will say: 'To Allah, The one, The Almighty 'Allah the Exalted will say: "O people of the gathering: lower your heads and cast your eyes down, for this is Fatima proceeding towards Paradise.' Gabriel shall then bring her a female camel from the female camels of Paradise; its sides shall be embellished, its muzzle with fresh pearls, and it shall have a saddle of coral. It shall kneel down in her presence; so she will ride it. Allah will then send 100, 000 angels to accompany her on her right side; and 100, 000 angels to accompany her on her left side; and 100, 000 angels to lift her onto their wings until they bring her to the gate of Paradise. When she is near the gate of Paradise, she will look to her side. Allah will then say: "Daughter of My beloved, why did you look to your side after I gave the command that you enter my Paradise?"
  782. She will say: "My Lord, I wished that my position would be realized on such a Day!" Allah will say:
  783. "Daughter of My beloved! Go back and look for everyone in whose heart was love for you or for any of your progeny; take their hand and lead them into paradise!"
  784. Abu Ja'far (A.S.) said: "By Allah; Jabir, she will pick her Shiites (followers) and those who love her just like a bird picks good seeds from bad seeds. So that when her Shiites are near the gate of Paradise, Allah will inspire their hearts to look to their sides; when they do--- Allah, The Almighty, will say:
  785. My beloved ones, why did you look around when Fatima, the daughter of my beloved one, interceded for you?' They will answer: `Our Lord! We hoped that our position would be known on such a day!'
  786. Allah will then say: `My beloved ones, go back and look for everyone who loved you for your love for Fatima;
  787. Look for everyone who fed you for the love of Fatima;
  788. Look for everyone who clothed you for the love of Fatima;
  789. Look for everyone who gave you a drink for the love of Fatima;
  790. Look for everyone who prevented (Gheeba) backbiting from being done against you for the love of Fatima...
  791. Take their hands and lead them into Paradise... "'
  792. Ibn Abbas said: "I heard Amir Al-Mo'mineen, Ali (A.S.) say: Once the Messenger of Allah entered the house of Fatima and found her in a sad mood. So he said: `What has made you sad daughter?'
  793. Fatima replied: `Father, I remembered the gathering (Day), and people standing naked on the Day of Resurrection!'
  794. He said: Daughter, surely it will be a great Day. But Gabriel informed me that Allah, Glorified and Exalted is He, said that the first one upon whom the ground shall be split opened is me, then your husband, Ali Ibn Abu Talib (A.S.); then Allah shall send Gabriel accompanied by seventy thousand angels and he will erect on your grave seven domes of light, after which Israfil will bring you three garments of light and stand by your head and say to you:
  795. "O Fatima Bint Muhammad, rise towards your gathering place."
  796. "You (Fatima) shall then rise secure from fear and veiled (in privacy). Israfil will hand you the garments and you will wear them. Rafael will then bring you a female camel of light; its muzzle shall be made of fresh pearls and on it shall be a howdan of gold. You will ride it and Rafael shall lead it by its muzzle while seventy thousand angels holding the banners of glorification accompany you.
  797. When the caravan hurries with you, seventy thousand Huris shall receive you rejoicing at seeing you; while every one of them will be holding a censer of light from which the fragrance of incense is spread without fire. They shall be wearing crowns of jewels embellished with green chrysolites."
  798. Imam Baqir (A.S.) said: "I heard Jabir Ibn Abdullah Ansari say: Allah's Messenger said: "On the Day of Rising, My daughter, Fatima, shall arrive riding a female camel from among the camels of Paradise-to her right shall be seventy thousand angels and to her left shall also be seventy thousand angels; Gabriel will be holding its muzzle and calling with the loudest of voices: `Cast down your eyes so that Fatima Bint Muhammad may pass!"
  799. "Then shall no prophet, messenger, truthful one, or martyr remain without casting their eyes down until Fatima passes... Then a call shall come from the side of Allah, the Exalted:
  800. My beloved one and the daughter of my beloved one; ask Us and you shall be given (whatever you wish), and intercede, your intercedence shall be accepted. By my Honor and Exaltation, the oppression of no oppressor shall pass My (judgment) today.
  801. She (Fatima) will then say: "O Allah, My Master;
  802. My progeny, My Shiites (followers), the Shiites of my progeny,
  803. Those who love me and those who love my progeny."
  804. She will then hear a call from Allah's side, may His Name be exalted:
  805. Where are Fatima's progeny, her Shiites, those who love her, and those who love her progeny?"
  806.  They will then come forward, surrounded by angels of mercy, and Fatima will lead them into Paradise."
  807. It has been ordained by the holy Prophet that a person who has firm faith in One-ness of Allah & believes in the day of resurrection must always talk wholesome or remain speechless .
  808. Be careful for your neighbor before your own-self & pray for his well-being .
  809. How will I face Allah if I ask my husband for something he is unable to afford ?
  810. Allah must always be praised by bringing to mind blessing bestowed by Him .
  811. It is essential to be grateful to Allah for His vast favours .
  812. Praise and Eulogy is for Allah for the blessing and bounties which He has bestowed. And thanks to HIM upon what He revelated (to His servants) And Praise is for HIM upon the common boons and blessings which He bestowed upon His servants without their request And upon the comprehensive and complete blessings which He granted to all and sundry and gave it to us, consecutively. Those graces and favors which are uncountable. And are irredeemable and uncompensatable due to their plentiful ness of number. And the imagination of their end is out of the reach of human mind. He invited the servant to thankfulness for the sake of the consequetive and continous enhanecment of blessings. And opened the door of eulogy and Praise (of Allah) upon them so that He may make his favors and beneficences great and plentiful for them.
  813. I testify that there is no Diety (Lord) except the sole and matchless Allah. And the testification of the singleness of Allah is a word that Allah has declared sincerity (as) it's reality, and made the hearts the centre of it's contact and union. And has made the specifications and research of the oneness of Allah's station obvious and evident in the light of meditation. The Allah Who can not be seen by the eyes and tongues are unable and baffled to describe His virtues and attributes. And the intelligence and apprehension of man is helpless and destitute from the imagination of his how ness.
  814. Allah made all the beings without previous matter and sample and shape and pattern. And made them wear the dress of life by His main and might's and created them according to His Devine will and Intention short of it that He might have needed their creation or have wished any benefit for Himself from their shaping and sketching except this that he wanted to give a proof of His wisdom and make the people (creations) aware about His obedience and submission and invited them to his servitude and worship and make His Invitation grand and ostentatious.
  815. The Prophet told Fatima: The two grandsons of this community are among us. These are Hasan and Husayn who are the masters of the youths of Paradise. By God, their father is more excellent than they. I solemnly declare in the name of the One who has sent me as a prophet that the Mahdi of this community will emerge from among these two sons of yours at the time when chaos will rule.
  816. Never fail to pronounce facts & truth of Islam till the last breath of your life .
  817. My great father ( the Holy Prophet s.a.w) taught to me these words of supplication :  " O Master of the ancients & the moderns ;
  818. O Possessor of vast power ; &
  819. O Most Merciful to the poverty -stricken ; &
  820. O most Merciful of all the merciful ! "
  821. Peace be upon you, Oh daughter of the Messenger of Allah !
  822. Peace be upon you, Oh daughter of the possessor of outstanding merit
  823. above all Prophets and messengers and angels !
  824. Peace be upon you, Oh Leader of the Women of the Worlds.
  825. Peace be upon you, Oh Wife of the Vicegerent of Allah !
  826. Peace be upon you, Oh mother of Hassan and Hussein, the Leaders of the Youth of Paradise !
  827. Peace be upon you, Oh most truthful and martyr.
  828. Peace be upon you, who was pleased to resign to the will of Allah and Allah was pleased with you.
  829. Peace be upon you, Oh possessor of outstanding merit of above others, and the pure.
  830. Peace be upon you, who is holy and guarded herself against sins !
  831. Peace be upon you, who is knowledgeable and an authority on traditions of the Prophet.
  832. Peace be upon you, who was subjected to anger and oppression.
  833. Peace be upon you, Oh Fatima, daughter of the Messenger of Allah, and May Allah have mercy on you and bless you.
  834. My great father ( the holy Prophet ) advised me that a person who wants to remain free of fever during hsi life-time , should repeat these words of supplication : " In the name of Allah , the Compassionate  , the Merciful ; in the name of Allah the light ; in the name of Allah the light of lights ;  in the name of Allah , the light upon  lights ;  in the name of Allah the Arranger of all affairs ;  in the name of Allah who crated light from light .Praise be Allah's , who created light from light , & send sent down light upon the (Mt) Tur in an inscribed book  in a heavenly tablet , in a precise amount upon a determined Prophet .Praise be Allah who is remembered  in dignity , is famous in honour , & is thanked in happiness & sorrow  . & may Allah favour our Lord , Muhammed  . "
  835. On Fasting She Said:
    Imam Sadiq (as) says on the authority of his forefathers that J. Zahra (as) had said that: "The man who is observing a fast would not gain anything, when his tongue, ears, and limbs are not safe from sin."
  836. Extracts of J. Zahra's (as) Sermon:
    Praise be to Allah, I am thankful to Him for the capabilities that He has given me.

    I bear witness that there is no God but Allah who is without a parallel and no one is His partner. This is a call, the essence of which is love and purity. That Allah who cannot be seen with our eyes; our tongue is unable to state His praise. He created all without any earlier precedent.

    I bear witness that my father, Messenger of Allah was the slave of Allah and His messenger. He was chosen before he was sent. He was awarded this position before his coming into being.

    'O servants of Allah, you are responsible to His "Orders and Prohibitions". His religion and His Revelation. You are, the representative of Allah! and a preacher from His side! And the protector of Allah's right is in your midst [Ali] He who protected the one who brought the testament of Allah to you.

    Whatever I am telling, its beginning and its end is the same. I do not indulge into contradictory talk. Whatever, I am telling is stark truth. I do not practice any wrong.

    When Allah chose from the dwell of messengers His Messenger (saww), He selected for him the honored place of chosen ones. No sooner than it was done, the discord and envy that was in the hearts, manifested amongst you. The veil of religion was turned up. Those who have lost the correct path, started opening their mouths.

    Unknown persons started to show off. Slogans in the interest of falsity were raised, and a conspiracy spread in the society.

    The Devil came out of his hole and called you to his side, because he found you waiting for his call and be fooled. He invited you to stay and ignited the fire of anger, the reflection of which became apparent on your face.

    This was the reason that you marked somebody's camel apart from your own, and you entered into somebody's river side. You started searching for what was not yours. Finally you started usurping the Government when not many days had passed since the demise of the Prophet (saww). Our woes and wounds were still bleeding, and even the Prophet (saww) was not buried, that you advanced an excuse saying that "A mischief has been averted".

    Can there be any greater mischief than the one that has overtaken you. Yes of course hell has taken them in its folds.

    This action was not expected from you, What are you doing? Where are you going? When the book of Allah is present in your midst everything in that is glittering and all its signs are fully clear as a Crystal. Its prohibition are apparent and clear, and all orders graphically clear, but you have put them behind your back. Have you turned your face from them? Or you are aiming at something else? Alas! it's to be highly regretted that tyrants have adopted dirty ways, instead of taking up a Qur'anic path.

    You have suddenly flared up the fire of mischief, and fanned its flames. You have assented to the talk of the Satan, who was misleading you. You have started to extinguish the light of the Religion of Allah and started obliterating the traditions of the Prophet (saww), and in the pretext of the froth of fermenting milk, you have silently sipped it all.

    You were bent on confining the family and progeny of the Prophet (saww) in a corner. We preferred to observe patience, but with sword hanging on our neck and a spear waiting to make a thrust in our chest.

    How wonderful it is that you think that the Almighty Allah has not granted us the right of inheritance, and that we will not get the inheritance of the Prophet (saww). Are you following the rules of the Age of illiteracy. For believers, no decision is better than the decision of Allah.

    Are you ignorant of these problems? Yes, you are fully aware of them. The fact is clear as a sun. You know that I am the daughter of the Prophet (saww).

    O' Muslim brethren! Is my inheritance going to be snatched by force? O' son of Qahafa answer me, does Qur'an say that you get your fathers' inheritance and I should not get my fathers' inheritance. Have you purposely disowned the Book of Allah; and have cast it behind your back. Whereas Qur'an says: Sulaiman got his father's (inheritance); Dawood got his fathers'. Regarding Yahya bin Zakariyya He said, "O' Allah: grant me a son, who could be my Successor and of the progeny of Yaqoob."

    Have you formed an idea that I will not get my parents inheritance?

    Did Allah, reveal a special verse for you, striking out my father from its purview, or you say two persons professing the same religion did not have the right to inherit each other's (property). Is mine and my father's religion not one?

    Or do you treat an average follower of Qur'an better than my father and cousin. If it is that case, take my inheritance like a saddled camel waiting to be taken advantage of. Ride it. BUT bear in mind that I will meet you on the day of rising and will put up my demand.

    What an excellent day it would be when Allah will adorn the seat of Justice and Mohammed Mustafa (saww) would be a plaintiff.
  837. Fatima, peace be on her, brought her two sons, al-Hasan and al- Husayn, peace be on them, to the Apostle of God, may God bless him and his family, at the time when he was suffering from the sickness from which he died. "Apostle of God," she said, "these are your two (grand) sons. Give them something as an inheritance."
    "As for al-Hasan," he replied, "he has my form and my nobility. As for al-Husayn, he has my generosity and my bravery."

    (These signs) are as the reports have mentioned. Among the total of these events are some which are bound (to happen) and other which are conditional. God knows best what will take place. We have only mentioned them on the basis of what is recounted in basic sources of tradition (usul) because of their inclusion in traditions which have been handed down. From God we seek help and Him do we ask for success.
  839. One day the Holy Lady Fatimah Al-Zahra(A.S.) was shown by her Father The Holy Prophet(S.A.W.) a very special kind of Prayer. That he himself was shown earlier by The Trusted Archangel Jibrael(A.S.).
    This special After-Prayer is to be said after each time, any Prayer of Worship is concluded.
    The Holy Lady(A.S) in turn began to teach the short Prayer to so many others. That in the very short time, it became to be known as the 'Prayer of Fatimah Al-Zahra(as)'.
    Take any kind of Prayer Bead string, such as shown on the image below. The Prayer String should have a total of 99 beads, with two dividers and ahead called the Sheikh.
    The Prayer Bead is taken by the left hand and with the index finger and tumb of the right hand draws each bead seperately one by one and saying the words as described below.
    For first set of 33 beads plus counting the first divider. Hence totalling in all 34 beads. For each bead passed say the clearly the words to yourself: ALLAHO AKBAR For each of the 34 beads separately. For the next second set of 33 beads. For each bead passed say the clearly the words to yourself: AL-HAMDU LE ALLAH For each of the 33 beads separately. For the third set of 33 beads For each bead passed say the clearly the words to yourself: SUBHANA LE ALLAH For each of the 33 beads separately.
    Totally 100 beads
    That concludes the Prayer of the Holy Infallible Lady of all women, in all of the worlds and in all of the Seven Heavens, The Lady Fatimah Al-Zahra(A.S.)
    Most or if not all of the Mujtahideen express a great Mustahab (preferable) as near to as Wajib (compulsory) to say this Prayer after any Prayer of Worship is concluded.
    Many Muslims carry with them at all times the Prayer Bead String so that they can recite this prayer numerously at any time of the day and night. Especially at times when one has nothing to do such as waiting or sitting around lazily.
    So think about it! What better way of filling your spare and idle time than to quietly recite this small Prayer to yourself in the remembrance and in thankfulness of Allah your Creator and Master. And in return Allah will reward His untold Thawaab and A'jar(reward)!
    Thus it is good to always recite, in One's idle times. For it keeps the mind away from straying into troubled terrain. But to keep it traveling on the true and right track of good and steer away from evil with its untold mischievous wicked thoughts and ideas.


    Golden Sayings & Speeches of Hazrat Bibi Fatima Tu Zahra a.s.
    Asalamoalaka ya Hazrat Bibi Fatima Tu Zahra a.s.
    Hazrat Bibi Fatima tu Zahra a.s  had to lead, addressing her father, the Holy Prophet, standing before his grave, said :- "Oh! Father dear! After thee, fell on me such miseries that had they fallen on bright days, the bright days would have turned into darkest nights.
    1. Behaar al-Anwaar / al-Majlesi = vol. 95, page 36. [270]((Salmaan narrates: Ten days after Rasoolollaah’s death, I went out of my home and on the way I saw cAli ibn Abi Taalib, Rasoolollaah’s Cousin. He said to me: O Salmaan! You abandoned us after Rasoolollaah! So I said: O my beloved Abu al-Hasan, your kind is not abandoned. But my grief over Rasoolollaah grew longer, and that is what kept me from visiting. He said: Go to Fatima's home. She likes to give you a gift she was sent from Heaven. So I said: Fatima was presented with something from Heaven after Rasoolollaah’s death?! He said: Yes; yesterday.
    2. So I ran to Fatima's home, and found her sitting wearing an cAbaa’ah[269]. It was so small that if she covered her head with it, her legs would show; and if she covered her legs with it, her head would show [if she were standing]. When she saw me entering, she covered her head with something. Then said: O Salmaan! You abandoned me after my father’s death! I said: My beloved, I have not abandoned you.
    3. She said: So sit and pay attention to what I tell you. Yesterday I was sitting here, and the door was locked [from the inside]. I was thinking about the termination of the revelation, and the departure of the angels from our home. Suddenly the door opened without someone unlocking it, and three ladies entered. No one has seen the likes of their beauty and elegance, and the blooming of their faces, and the purity of their scents. When I saw them, I stood up and asked: Are you from Makkah or Madinah?
    4. They said: O daughter of Mohammad! We are neither from Makkah nor Madinah; we are not from the earth; we are from Heaven. The Lord of Glory has sent us. We have been yearning to see you.
    5. So I asked the one I thought was the oldest of the three: What is your name? She said: My name is Maqdoodah. I asked: And why were you named Maqdoodah? She said: I was created for Meqdaad ibn al-Aswad al-Kendi, companion of Rasoolollaah.
    6. And I asked the second woman: What is your name? She said: Dharrah. I asked: And why were you named Dharrah? She said: I was created for Aboo Dharr al-Ghefaari, companion of Rasoolollaah.
    7. And I asked the third: What is your name? She said: Salmaa. I asked: And why were you named Salmaa? She said: I was created for Salmaan al-Faarsi, companion of your father Rasoolollaah.
    8. Then Faatimah said: The women gave me a gift from Heaven, and I have kept some of it for you. So she brought a tray of dates, whiter than snow, and with a scent better than musk, and gave me five, saying: Break your fast tonight with these, and bring me their stones tomorrow.
    9. So I took the dates and left, and on my way every one asked me: O Salmaan! Do you have musk with you? And I said: Yes.
    10. At night, I broke my fast with the dates, but did not find any stones in them. The next day I went to Rasoolollaah’s daughter and said: I broke my fast with your gift, but did not find any [seed] stones in them. She said: O Salmaan! They would not have any [seed] stones. They are from a palm that Allah has planted in Heaven because of a dua’ that my father Mohammad had taught me, which I recite every morning and night.
    11. I said, 'please teach me those words'. She then said, 'If you wish to avoid being inflicted with fever whilst you are in this world, then you should regularly recite these words.
      Salman then said that she taught me these preventative words. They are:
    12. “In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
      In the name of Allah, the Light. In the name of Allah, the Light of Light. In the name of Allah who is Light above Light. In the name of Allah, who directs and controls all affairs. In the name of Allah, who created light from Light. All praise is due to Allah who created light from Light. And sent down light on Tur, mentioned in the broad leaves of the guarded tablet, and on Him. All praise is due to Allah, who is spoken of with respect and who is famous for His Honour. And who deserves thanks both in happiness and sorrow.
      And may Allah bless our Leader Mohammad and all his holy descendants.”
      Some of her other supplications are:
    13. “O Allah! Belittle me in my eyes and glorify and magnify Your status to me. And inspire me to be obedient to You. And inspire me with deeds that receive your satisfaction. And aid me in evading and shunning deeds and actions that bring your wrath.”
    14. “O Allah! Make me content with what you have bestowed upon me. And till the end of time conceal my transgressions and protect me from further transgressions. Forgive me and take mercy upon me when I die. O Allah do not make me labour for that you have not preordained for me, and facilitate all things that you have predestined for me."
    15. "O Allah reward my parents and all those who have been beneficent to me with the best of your rewards.
    16. O Allah occupy me with that which you have created me for. And do not engross me with my own commitments. And do not torment me whilst I am asking forgiveness of you and do not deprive me when I ask of you."
    17. And although Abu Bakr and cOmar both admitted that she [Omm Ayman] and Abu Bakr’s wife, Asmaa’ bint cOmays, were promised Heaven by Rasoolollaah, they refused their testimony and shamelessly said:  ((Two women from Heaven testify to a lie[251].)). ((When Faatimah died, Omm Ayman swore not to stay in Madinah, as she could not bear to look at the places where Fatima had used to be; so she left for Makkah. On the way she became badly thirsty, so she extended her arms towards the sky and said: O Lord! I am Faatimah’s housemaid, do you kill me by thirst? !Suddenly a bucket came down to her from the sky, and she drank from it. After that she did not need food or water for seven years. So she would go out [to the desert] in a very hot day, and she would not become thirsty[253].[253] Behaar al-Anwaar / al-Majlesi = vol. 43, page 28.[251] Mostadrakaat cAwaalim al-cOloom / al-Abtahi = vol. 11, page 1047.
    18. It has been narrated from Omm Ayman, who said: ((One day I went to the home of my Lady Fatima Zahra’ to visit her. It was a hot summer day. When I reached her home, I found the door locked; so I looked inside through the cracks of the door and saw Fatima lying asleep next to the hand mill, and saw the hand mill grinding wheat, rotating without a hand turning it; and I also saw the cradle in which Hussein was asleep next to her, rocking without someone moving it; and I saw a hand praising Allah next to Fatima's hand. So I was surprised to see that, and went to my Master Rasoolollaah, greeted him and said: O Rasoolollaah! Indeed, I saw an amazing thing, the likes of which I had never seen before. So he asked me: O Omm Ayman! What have you seen? So I told him: I went to my Lady’s home and found the door locked, and saw the hand mill grinding wheat, rotating without a hand turning it; and I saw Hussein's cradle rocking without a hand moving it; and I saw a hand praising Allah, the Most High, next to Fatima's hand, and it was not attached to a person; so I was surprised to see that O my Master! So he said: O Omm Ayman! Fatima is fasting, and she is tired and hungry, and the day is very hot. So Allah, the Most High, put her in drowsiness and she slept. So praise be to Him Who does not sleep. Then Allah sent an angel to grind the food for her family; and He sent another angel to rock Hussein's cradle, so that her sleep may not be disturbed; and He sent another angel to praise Him on behalf of Fatima near her hand, with its reward going to Fatima, as she had not been languorous in the invocation of Allah. So whenever she sleeps, Allah sends the reward of that angel’s Praise of God to her. So I said: O Rasoolollaah! Tell me who is the grinder, and who is the one who rocks Hussein's cradle and talks tenderly to him, and who is the giver of Praise? So the prophet smiled and said: The grinder is Jabra’eel, and the one who rocks Hosayn’s cradle is Meekaa‘eel[14], and the angel who praises is Esraafeel[15].)). [14] Also Michael. [15] Mostadrakaat cAwaalim al-cOloom / al-Abtahi = vol. 11, page 196. Behaar al-Anwaar / al-Majlesi = vol. 37, page 97.
    19. It is narrated that a lady came and asked Fatima a question. Fatima answered her. The lady continued to ask until her questions reached ten. After that the lady felt embarrassed about asking more. She said, 'I won't overburden you with more questions, Oh daughter of the Prophet.' Fatima answered saying, 'Ask anything you wish for I heard my father say that the scholars from my people will on the day of Judgement be bestowed with honours depending on the amount of knowledge they possess and how much strain they exert in teaching the people.'
    20. Hazrat Bibi Fedhah r.a , Hazrat Bibi Fatima's a.s helper, spoke of Fatima's a.s sadness; she said:
      "It was on the eighth day after the Prophet's death that Fatima revealed the extent of her sadness and inability to bear life without her father. She (a.s) came to the Mosque and while crying said:
      'Oh! Father;
      Oh! My sincere friend;
      Oh! Abu Al-Qasim
      Oh! The helper of the widowed and the orphans;
      Who do we have for Kaaba and the Mosque?
      Who does your saddened and grieved daughter have?"
      Fedhah added:
      "Fatima (a.s) then proceeded towards the tomb of the Prophet; it was difficult for her to walk because her tears covered her eyes. When she saw the Mizaneh, she passed out; so the women rushed to rescue her; after putting water of her face, she regained consciousness; Fatima then said.
      'My strength has been eradicated;
      My endurance has betrayed me;
      My enemies have rejoiced at my misfortune;
      And my grief will kill me;
      Father! I remain bewildered and lonely;
      Confused and lonesome;
      My voice is subdued;
      My back is broken;
      My life is disturbed;
      I find no one, Father, after you to attend to my loneliness;
      Neither to stop my tears;
      Nor to support me in times of weakness;
      Surely precise revelations, the place of Gabriel's descendence and Michael's location have vanished after you,
      Father; Motives (of others) have changed;
      And gates have been shut in my face,
      Thus, I detest this world after you;...
      And my tears shall be shed for you as long as breath continues to exist in me.
      My longing for you shall not cease;
      My sadness for (being separated from) you shall not vanish;
      Fatima then cried out loudly: Father!!
      With you went the light of the world,'
      Its flowers wither away after blossoming in your presence; Father!!
      I will forever be sorrowful for you until we are reunited,'
      Father! Sleeping has left me since we have been separated,'
      Father!!
      Who is there for the widows and the orphans;
      Who will we have for the Ummah until
      The Day of Rising?!
      Father!!
      We became-after you-among the oppressed,'
      Father!!
      People shun us after you,'
      after we were glorified by your presence among men.
      Thus, what tear shall not spill on your departure?
      What sadness (after you) shall not continue to exist?
      Which eyelid shall be smeared with slumber?
      You are the spring of faith and the light of Prophets.
      So how can mountains not sway?
      And seas not dry out?
      How can the Earth not tremble?
      Father!!
      I have been afflicted with the greatest sorrow, and my disaster is not minor!
      Father!!
      I have been inflicted with the greatest misfortune and the biggest calamity.
      Angels cry for you, and stars cease to move because of you. Your minbar (after you) is gloomy, Your minbar is empty of your secret conversation (with your Lord). Your grave is joyful for holding you,'
      And Paradise is delighted with your presence, Supplication and prayers.
      Father!!
      How gloomy are your meeting places (without your presence)!!
      How pained Jam for you, until I soon join you!! How bereaved is Abu Al-Hussan, The entrusted one!!
      The Father of your two sons, Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain; your beloved one,'
      He who you brought up as a youth, and made your brother as a man. (Abu Al-Hassan)
      The most beloved of your companions to you. Abu Al-Hassan, who was the first to immigrate and help you.
      Sadness has overtaken us, 'Crying will kill us; And distress will always accompany us.'
      Lady Fatima (a.s) then returned to her house and lived in misery and sadness until she joined her beloved father not long after he passed away."
    21.  Jaber Ibn Abdullah Ansari said:
      "I said to Abu Ja'far (Al-Baqir (A)): `May I be your sacrifice son of Allah's Messenger; narrate to me a hadith in regard to the noble traits of your grandmother Fatima, so that if I report it to your Shiites (followers), they would rejoice at (hearing) it!'
      Abu Ja'far (A) said: `My father told me that my grandfather reported that Allah's Messenger said:
      "On the Day of Rising, Minbars of light shall be erected for the prophets and messengers, of which my Minbar shall be the highest among all Minbars on that day. Allah will then say: Deliver a speech,' so I will deliver a speech that none of the prophets or messengers have ever heard. Then for the successors (of prophets) shall be erected Minbars of light, and in the middle of these Minbars one shall be erected for my successor, Ali Ibn Abu Talib, which will be higher than all their Minbars. Allah will then say:
      "Ali, deliver a speech.' So he will deliver a speech like no successor has ever heard before. Then for the children of the prophets and messengers shall be erected Minbars of light; among them shall be a Minber of light for my two sons, grandsons and the two flowers of my life (Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain). Then it shall be said to them: "Deliver speeches." So they will deliver two speeches like none of the children of the prophets and messengers have ever heard before!
      "A caller-Gabriel-shall then call:
      `Where is Fatima Bint Muhammad?'
      She (A) will rise..." (until he said):
      'Allah, the blessed and exalted is His Name, shall say:
      `O people of the gathering; to whom does honor belong today?'
      So Muhammad, Ali, Hassan and Al-Hussain (A) will say:
      'To Allah, The one, The Almighty
      'Allah the Exalted will say:
      "O people of the gathering: lower your heads and cast your eyes down, for this is Fatima proceeding towards Paradise.' Gabriel shall then bring her a female camel from the female camels of Paradise; its sides shall be embellished, its muzzle with fresh pearls, and it shall have a saddle of coral. It shall kneel down in her presence; so she will ride it. Allah will then send 100, 000 angels to accompany her on her right side; and 100, 000 angels to accompany her on her left side; and 100, 000 angels to lift her onto their wings until they bring her to the gate of Paradise. When she is near the gate of Paradise, she will look to her side. Allah will then say:
      "Daughter of My beloved, why did you look to your side after I gave the command that you enter my Paradise?"
      She will say: "My Lord, I wished that my position would be realized on such a Day!"
      Allah will say:
      "Daughter of My beloved!
      Go back and look for everyone in whose heart was love for you or for any of your progeny; take their hand and lead them into paradise!"
    22. Abu Ja'far (A) said: "By Allah; Jabir, she will pick her Shiites (followers) and those who love her just like a bird picks good seeds from bad seeds. So that when her Shiites are near the gate of Paradise, Allah will inspire their hearts to look to their sides; when they do--- Allah, The Almighty, will say:
      My beloved ones, why did you look around when Fatima, the daughter of my beloved one, interceded for you?'
      They will answer: `Our Lord! We hoped that our position would be known on such a day!'
      Allah will then say: `My beloved ones, go back and look for everyone who loved you for your love for Fatima;
      Look for everyone who fed you for the love of Fatima;
      Look for everyone who clothed you for the love of Fatima;
      Look for everyone who gave you a drink for the love of Fatima;
      Look for everyone who prevented (Gheeba) backbiting from being done against you for the love of Fatima...
      Take their hands and lead them into Paradise... "'
    23. Ibn Abbas said: "I heard Amir Al-Mo'mineen, Ali (A) say:
      Once the Messenger of Allah entered the house of Fatima and found her in a sad mood. So he said: `What has made you sad daughter?'
      Fatima replied: `Father, I remembered the gathering (Day), and people standing naked on the Day of Resurrection!'
      He said: Daughter, surely it will be a great Day. But Gabriel informed me that Allah, Glorified and Exalted is He, said that the first one upon whom the ground shall be split opened is me, then your husband, Ali Ibn Abu Talib (A); then Allah shall send Gabriel accompanied by seventy thousand angels and he will erect on your grave seven domes of light, after which Israfil will bring you three garments of light and stand by your head and say to you:
    24. "O Fatima Bint Muhammad, rise towards your gathering place."
      "You (Fatima) shall then rise secure from fear and veiled (in privacy). Israfil will hand you the garments and you will wear them. Rafael will then bring you a female camel of light; its muzzle shall be made of fresh pearls and on it shall be a howdan of gold. You will ride it and Rafael shall lead it by its muzzle while seventy thousand angels holding the banners of glorification accompany you.
      When the caravan hurries with you, seventy thousand Huris shall receive you rejoicing at seeing you; while every one of them will be holding a censer of light from which the fragrance of incense is spread without fire. They shall be wearing crowns of jewels embellished with green chrysolites."
    25. Bihar v.10, on the authority of Amali (by Saduq) reports that Imam Baqir (A) said:
      "I heard Jabir Ibn Abdullah Ansari say: Allah's Messenger said: "On the Day of Rising, My daughter, Fatima, shall arrive riding a female camel from among the camels of Paradise-to her right shall be seventy thousand angels and to her left shall also be seventy thousand angels; Gabriel will be holding its muzzle and calling with the loudest of voices: `Cast down your eyes so that Fatima Bint Muhammad may pass!"
      "Then shall no prophet, messenger, truthful one, or martyr remain without casting their eyes down until Fatima passes... Then a call shall come from the side of Allah, the Exalted:
      My beloved one and the daughter of my beloved one; ask Us and you shall be given (whatever you wish), and intercede, your intercedence shall be accepted. By my Honor and Exaltation, the oppression of no oppressor shall pass My (judgment) today.
    26. She (Fatima) will then say:
      "O Allah, My Master;
      My progeny, My Shiites (followers), the Shiites of my progeny, those who love me and those who love my progeny."
    27. She will then hear a call from Allah's side, may His Name be exalted:
      "Where are Fatima's progeny, her Shiites, those who love her, and those who love her progeny?
    28. " They will then come forward, surrounded by angels of mercy, and Fatima will lead them into Paradise." It was natural for the Prophet (S) who knew and foretold the future events, to reveal to his family, especially his beloved daughter Fatima (A), the events which they would face in the future. He (S) undoubtedly informed Fatima (A) that she was going to suffer from the harsh treatment of some so called Muslims after his death and that she would be the first to follow him to the blessings of Paradise after his departure.
    29. Bihar v.10: Sheikh Mufeed is quoted as writing in his book Al-Amali that Abdullah Ibn Abbas said:
      "When Allah's Messenger was on his deathbed, he cried until tears overtook his beard.
      So was asked:
      `What makes you cry, Messenger of Allah?'
      The Prophet answered: `I am crying for my progeny, for the crimes that will be committed against them by the evildoers of my nation after my death.
    30. It is as if I (can see) my daughter, Fatima, being oppressed and crying: "O Father!" But no one will come to help her among my Ummah.'
    31. Fatima (A) began weeping when she heard this, so the Prophet said to her:
      'Do not cry my daughter'
    32. She said: 'I am not crying because of that which will be done to me after you; rather, I am crying because I will be separated from you, Messenger of Allah'
      He then said: `Rejoice, O daughter of Muhammad, at the close succession to me, for you will be the first one to follow me from among my Ahlul-Bayt.'
    33. Besides the sea of knowledge that Fatima possessed, there was her extraordinary worship of Allah. Fatima would pray until her legs swelled from standing. She always prayed for the believers before praying for herself. In describing her worship Imam Hassan said, "I saw my mother, Fatima, standing in her prayer niche. She kept praying, bending and prostrating until day break. I heard her pray for the male and female believers, mentioning them by name. She prayed so much for them, but didn't pray for herself. 'Mother', I asked her, 'why don't you pray for yourself as you are praying for others?' 'My little son', she said, 'begin with your neighbor then yourself.'
    34. Imam al-Baqir said, "By Allah Jabir, she will pick her Shiites (followers) and those who love her, just like a bird picks good seeds from bad seeds. So that when her Shiites are near the gate of Paradise, Allah will inspire their hearts to look to their sides; when they do, Allah the Almighty, will say: My beloved one, why did you look around when Fatima, the daughter of my beloved one, interceded for you. They will answer Our Lord! We hoped that our position would be known on such a day!
    35. "Allah will then say: My beloved ones go back and look for everyone who loved you for your love for Fatima. Look for everyone who fed you for the love of Fatima. Look for everyone that clothed you for the love of Fatima. Look for everyone who gave you a drink for the love of Fatima. Look for everyone who prevented backbiting from being done against you for the love of Fatima…. Take their hands and lead them into Paradise…"
    36. Abu Bakr said: "May Allah save me from His anger and Fatimah's anger" (the same words used by al-Bukhari) then he cried bitterly when she said {Hazart Fatima a.s}, "By Allah, I will curse you in every prayer that I do." He came crying out and said: "I do not need your pledge of allegiance and discharge me from my duties."

    37. Praise & Eulogy is for Allah for the blessing & bounties which He has bestowed . And thanks to Him upon what He revaluated (to His servants) And Praise is for Him upon the common boons & blessings which He bestowed upon His servants without their request And upon the comprehensive & complete blessings which He granted to all & sundry & gave it to us , consecutively . Those graces & favours which are uncountable.  And are irredeemable & uncompensatable due to their plentiful ness of number . And the imagination of their end is out of the reach of human mind .He invited the servant to thankfulness for the sake of the consecutive continuous enhancement of blessing . And opened the door of eulogy & Praise (of Allah) upon them so that He may make his favours & beneficences great & plentiful for them . (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-315).
    38. This is a short story about Bibi Fatima (as) when she was asked to attend a Jewish wedding.
      There lived in Medina a Jew. Arrangements for the wedding of Jew's daughter were ready and he wished that Janab-e-Syeda (SA) should honour by her presence, the wedding ceremony. So he approached our beloved Holy Prophet (SAWW) and requested that permission be granted to Janab-e-Syeda (SA) to attend the wedding of his daughter. Our beloved Holy Prophet (SAWW) directed the Jew to speak to Hazrat Ali (AS), who had the authority over the matter.
      So the Jew then approached Hazrat Ali (AS) with the same request. Hazrat Ali (AS) directed him to Janab-e-Syeda (SA) herself saying that it is up to her if she is willing to attend. So the Jew came to the house and announced his presence to Janab-e-Syeda (SA) and asked again for the request for her to attend the wedding of his daughter. Janab-e-Syeda (SA) informed him that if Janab-e-Ameer (AS) permits, she will attend. The Jew informed Janab-e-Syeda that he had already approached Allah's Rasool (SAWW) and Hazrat Ali (AS) and they had directed him to her.
      On hearing this Janab-e-Syeda was pondering over the matter when our Holy Prophet (SAWW) came to her house. Janab-e-Syeda enquired our Beloved Holy Prophet (SAWW),
    39. “Baba Jaan the Jew wishes me to attend the wedding of his daughter. What do you advise?”
      She was replied, “O my child, you are at liberty either to accept or refuse.”
    40. Janab-e-Syeda said, “My presence their would be in the eyes of the womenfolk there an insult because their women would be attired in fine clothes and bedecked with jewelry whereas my clothes are old, and patched all over.”
      Beloved Holy Prophet said, “You attend dressed with what you have according to the will of Allah.”
    41. On the day Janab-e-Syeda got ready and while she was about to leave her room angels from Jannat descended with clothes and jewelry. She was properly attired with befitting clothes and jewelry and with her in a procession some angels on her right, some on her left , some in front of her and some behind.
      No sooner Janab-e-Syeda reached the Jew's house, the house of the Jew was dazzling with the noor of Janab-e-Syeda and the women-folk who had gathered near the bride were awestruck. All over near around was filled with fragrance. Most of the women present there including the bride fell in a state of unconsciousness. After sometime all recovered but the bride. Everything was tried to revive the bride back to consciousness but all failed. When the bride was closely examined it became evident that she had died. The wedding place had turned in to a funeral. Janab-e-Syeda for a moment was grieved to know this but then immediately assured one and all that she would regain consciousness soon and they should remain calm.
    42. Janab-e-Sayyeda established two Raka'at prayers and thereafter beseeched the Almighty Lord saying: “Oh My Lord, I am the daughter of thy messenger, you have named me Batu-al-Siddiqa for the sake of your messenger do fulfill my assurance given to these people. Oh My True Lord, I am the daughter of your messenger, my prestigious is in your hands. Everyone would unknowingly accuse me to be the cause of the bride's death and that the wedding place would turn in lamentations." Shortly her supplication was accepted while she still on her prayer mat.
      The bride became conscious and no sooner she opened her eyes she started reciting Salwat. The bride then got up acknowledging thus: “There is NO deity except Allah, and Muhammad is His messenger and you are the daughter of our Beloved Prophet. I request you to purify me and teach me the religion.”
      With such sincerity of heart she embraced Islam. On witnessing this scene and the miracle of Janab-e-Syeda about 500 Jews men and women and children embraced Islam that day. Thereafter everyone there gave great due respects to Janab-e-Syeda and after the wedding ceremony, newly converted gave Janab-e-Syeda a maid as a present. Janab-e-Syeda returned home and informed her father of the incident who on hearing this fell in prostration to thank the Almighty Allah for the exaltation accorded to his Ahl-ul-Bayt (AS). Salawaat/ Darood Shrif : ALLAAHUMMA S'ALLE A'LAA MUHAMMADIW-WA AALE MUHAMMAD  --
    43. Allah's Messenger (P.B.U.H.) visited once his daughter Fatima, but when he found her wearing a necklace, he turned away from her. Fatima (A.S.) took off her necklace and her earrings and sent them to her Father with a message saying: "Give this for the cause of Allah" The Prophet said: "She has done it. May her Father be her redemption (3 times). The Family 0! Muhammad has no concern in anything in this world: They were born for the hereafter." Other sources have it that he added: "These are the Members of my Family (Ah! El-Beit) and I do not like them to enjoy the delights of this world"
    44.  Thus the problem was not a simple financial problem. It was absolutely political in nature. The quarrel Fatima (AS) was not for the pleasure of this world. History testifies that Imam Ali and Fatimah have had a very simple life during the life time of prophet as well as thereafter. It is well known that verses (76:8-9) of the holy Quran was revealed for them when for 3 consecutive days, they gave their meal to needy people at the time of IFTAR, when they were going to break their fast, and there was noting left for them and their children to eat for three consecutive days. So such pious people do not struggle or GET ANGRY because of such worldly things. THAT IS WHY, ANGER OF FATIMA IS ANGER OF PROPHET. They were, in fact, struggling for the sake of Allah and for spending their legitimate properties for His Right Path and its followers.
    45. At the time of Harun al-Rashid (one of the Abbasid Tyrants) the Islamic country was in its biggest extent. It was extended from Afghanistan and central Asia to the North Africa. So it was not important for government to give up a piece of land. Moreover, by returning it they could make propaganda for their interest. According to some reports, Harun told to Imam Musa al-Kadhim (the 7th Imam of the Ahlul-Bayt): "Let us know the location of the land of Fadak so that I could return it to you." The Imam (AS) replied: "I would accept it only in its entirety." Harun said: "Specify its boundaries then." The Imam (AS) said: "If I specify its borders, you will not return it." Harun said: "I swear in the name of your grandfather that I shall return it." At this time, the Imam (AS) said: "It extends from one side to Aden (Southern part of Arabian peninsula), and from one side to Samarqand (Afghanistan), and from one side to Armenia (south of Russia) and from one side to Egypt in Africa." The face of Harun turned red and said: "This does not leave anything for us." The Imam (AS) replied: "I told you that you will not return it if I specify its limits!" (al-Bihar, v48, p144, Hadith #20).
    46. Once an old poor man came to the house of Bibi Fatima (A) and asked her for help.
      Bibi Fatima (A) had nothing to give to the old man except the necklace that her cousin had given to her. She took it off and gave it to the old man, telling him to sell the necklace and use the money.
      A man called Ammar who was a friend of the Holy Prophet (S) bought the necklace from the old man and gave him:- some food, some clothes, a horse and some money.
      Ammar then sent his servant to the house of the Holy Prophet (S) and told him to tell the Holy Prophet (S) that he had sent the necklace and the servant as a gift.
      When the Holy Prophet (S) heard this, he sent the servant and the necklace to Bibi Fatima (A) as a gift. Bibi Fatima (A) thanked the servant for bringing the necklace and gave him his freedom.
      What a special necklace! It provided food, clothes, a horse, money, freed a man, and finally came back to its owner!
      Moral: You should give whatever you have to people who need it and Allah will give you more in return.

    47. I testify that there is no Diety (lord) except the sole & matchless Allah . And the testification of the singleness of Allah is a word that Allah has declared sincerity (as) it's reality, & made the hearts the centre of it's contact & union. And has made the specifications & research of the oneness of Allah 's station obvious & evident in the light of meditation . The Allah Who cn not be seen by the eyes & tongues are unable & baffled to describe His virtues & attributes. And the intelligence & apprehension of man is helpless & destitute from the imagination of his how ness. (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-315).
    48. Allah made all the beings without previous matter & sample & shape & pattern . and made them wear the dress of life by His main & might's & created them according to His Devine will & intention , short of it that He might have needed their creation , or have wished any benefit for Himself from their shaping & sketching , except this that he wanted to give a proof of His wisdom & make the people (creations) aware about His obedience & submission , & invited them to his servitude & worship & make His invitation grand & ostentation.  (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-315-316).
    49. Allah fixed the reward for His obedience & torment for His insubordination & disobedience , so that He may restrain His servants from His wrath & fury & lead them to His paradise . (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    50. On the Day of Judgment Allah will show to All the people the great honour in which Fatima is held. He will allow her to intercede for her followers and those who love her. She because of that honour can ask forgiveness for them, thus allowing her to proceed with them into paradise. It is narrated by Jabir al-Ansari that on that day after the Prophet and the Imams deliver their speeches, Jibrael will call out, 'Where is Fatima the daughter of Mohammad.' Fatima then rises. Allah then says, 'Oh People of the gathering, to whom does honour belong today?' "So Mohammad, Ali, Hassan and Al-Hussain will say: 'To Allah, The One, and The Almighty." Allah the Exalted will say: "O People of the gathering: lower your heads and cast your eyes down, for this is Fatima proceeding towards paradise. Jibrael shall then bring her a female camel from the female camels of Paradise; its sides shall be embellished, its muzzle with fresh pearls, and it shall have a saddle of coral. It shall kneel down in her presence; so she will ride it. Allah will then send one hundred thousand angels to accompany her on her right side; and one hundred thousand angels to accompany her on he left side; and one hundred thousand angels to lift her onto their wings until they bring her to the gate of Paradise. When she is near the gate of Paradise, she will look to her side." Allah will then say: "Daughter of my beloved, why did you look to your side after I gave the command that you enter My Paradise?' She will say: "My lord, I wished that my position would be realized on such a day!" Allah will say, "Daughter of my beloved! Go back and look for everyone in whose heart was love for you or for any of your progeny; take their hand and lead them into paradise!"
    51. And I testify that my father Mohammad s.a.w is the apostle & the servant of Allah . And Allah selected & chose him before appointing him at the post of Prophet hood . And He named him before choosing & selecting him. And chose him before envoying & delegating him. Then all the creations were hidden & covered in the covers of unseen & were hidden amid the screen & curtain of fear & fright & stayed near the last & final border of non entity (nothingness), for , Allah was aware of & knew the end of matters & because of His encompassing the incidents of times & ages & His knowledge of the predestinates. Allah appointed him (as apostle) so that he may complete & finalize His matter & implement His order & materialize His decreeds & predestinates .  (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    52. Allah saw nations & groups had various different sects in their religion & scattered & saying on the verge of the fires of differences , busy with the their idol worshipping of Him .(Irfan) So Allah illuminated the darkness through my father Mohammad s.a.w & removed the darkness from their hearts , removed (cured) the blindness of the eyes. (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    53. Sahih Bukhari Hadith: 5.546 , Narrated 'Aisha:
      Fatimah the daughter of the Prophet sent someone to Abu Bakr (when he was a caliph), asking for her inheritance of what Allah's Apostle had left of the property bestowed on him by Allah from the Fai (i.e. booty gained without fighting) in Medina, and Fadak, and what remained of the Khumus of the Khaibar booty. On that, Abu Bakr said, "Allah's Apostle said, "Our property is not inherited. Whatever we leave, is Sadaqa, but the family of (the Prophet) Muhammad can eat of this property.' By Allah, I will not make any change in the state of the Sadaqa of Allah's Apostle and will leave it as it was during the lifetime of Allah's Apostle, and will dispose of it as Allah's Apostle used to do." So Abu Bakr refused to give anything of that to Fatima. So she became angry with Abu Bakr and kept away from him, and did not talk to him till she died. She remained alive for six months after the death of the Prophet. When she died, her husband 'Ali, buried her at night without informing Abu Bakr and he said the funeral prayer by himself.
      When Fatimah was alive, the people used to respect 'Ali much, but after her death, 'Ali noticed a change in the people's attitude towards him. So Ali sought reconciliation with Abu Bakr and gave him an oath of allegiance. Ali had not given the oath of allegiance during those months (i.e. the period between the Prophet's death and Fatima's death). 'Ali sent someone to Abu Bakr saying, "Come to us, but let nobody come with you," as he disliked that 'Umar should come, 'Umar said (to Abu Bakr), "No, by Allah, you shall not enter upon them alone " Abu Bakr said, "What do you think they will do to me? By Allah, I will go to them' So Abu Bakr entered upon them, and then 'Ali uttered Tashah-hud and said (to Abu Bakr), "We know well your superiority and what Allah has given you, and we are not jealous of the good what Allah has bestowed upon you, but you did not consult us in the question of the rule and we thought that we have got a right in it because of our near relationship to Allah's Apostle ." Thereupon Abu Bakr's eyes flowed with tears. And when Abu Bakr spoke, he said, "By Him in Whose Hand my soul is to keep good relations with the relatives of Allah's Apostle is dearer to me than to keep good relations with my own relatives. But as for the trouble which arose between me and you about his property, I will do my best to spend it according to what is good, and will not leave any rule or regulation which I saw Allah's Apostle following, in disposing of it, but I will follow." On that 'Ali said to Abu Bakr, "I promise to give you the oath of allegiance in this after noon."
      So when Abu Bakr had offered the Zuhr prayer, he ascended the pulpit and uttered the Tashah-hud and then mentioned the story of 'Ali and his failure to give the oath of allegiance, and excused him, accepting what excuses he had offered; Then 'Ali (got up) and praying (to Allah) for forgiveness, he uttered Tashah-hud, praised Abu Bakr's right, and said, that he had not done what he had done because of jealousy of Abu Bakr or as a protest of that Allah had favored him with. 'Ali added, "But we used to consider that we too had some right in this affair (of rulership) and that he (i.e. Abu Bakr) did not consult us in this matter, and therefore caused us to feel sorry." On that all the Muslims became happy and said, "You have done the right thing." The Muslims then became friendly with 'Ali as he returned to what the people had done (i.e. giving the oath of allegiance to Abu Bakr).
    54.  Bibi Fatima az-Zahra (A) used to work very hard in her house. Her father our Holy Prophet, Prophet Muhammad (S) could see how hard she worked.  So one day he told her that he was going to give her something that would be better than a helper or anything else in the world.  Do you know what he gave her?  He gave her Tasbeeh.  He told her that after every Salaat she should say:  Allahu Akbar - 34 times Alhamdulillah - 33 times Subhanallah - 33 times  This is what we call the Tasbeeh of Bibi Fatima az-Zahra (A)  The Salaat is like a beautiful flower and the Tasbeeh of Bibi Fatima (A) gives that beautiful flower a beautiful smell.  So after every Salaat we should say the Tasbeeh of Bibi Fatima az-Zahra (A) because we want our Salaat to be like a beautiful flower with a beautiful smell.Several factors can be cited to have motivated some Muslims to choose Abu Bakr as their leader:
    55. My father (Mohammad s.a.w) stood up with (his) guidance among the people. And saved them from perversion & aberration , & turned their blindness into enlightenment & guided them towards the firm religion. And called (invited) them to the straight way. (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    56. Al-Majlisi (May Allah bless his soul) narrated in Bihar that Imam Sadiq (A) said:
      "The Messenger of Allah entered his house to find Aisha yelling at Fatima, saying:
      `By Allah, O Khadija's daughter, you feel that your mother was better than us; but what favor does she have above us? Is she not saved like us?'
      The Prophet (S) heard Aisha's shouting. When Fatima saw him, she began to cry; the Prophet (S) then said: `What makes you cry, O daughter of Muhammad?'
      Fatima said: 'Aisha degraded my mother, and this has caused me to cry.'
      The Messenger of Allah (S) angrily said: `Hush, O Humaira (reddish woman)!! Surely Allah (Exalted is His Name) blessed this devoted and fertile woman; and Khadija (may Allah bless her soul) gave birth to my children, Al-Tahir (Abdullah) who was purified and A1-Qasim; but Allah has created you with a sterile womb so you do not give birth to any children."
    57. You the servants of Allah , are the ones to maintain His injunction, & prohibitions , & the carriers of His religion , & His relevation , & the trustees  of Allah upon your souls , & the propagators of His religion among the other nation.  (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    58. Oh the servants of Allah ! (beware) the real leader from Allah, is present among you & the commitment has previously been made to you & the commitment has previously been made to you & the remaining & left over of the prophet hood  has been appointed for your guidance. That is the speaking book of Allah the truthful Quran , & a beaming & gleaming light , in which all he secrets & facts about the completion of man & his prosperity have been exhibited & illuminated . It guides from darkness towards light of guidance .It's followers are the subject of envoy of others . (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    59. It is inevitable after Abu Bakr seized power that Ali (A) should pay allegiance to him, for it is the natural path of every coup to force the opposition to announce its support to the -new regime. But what can they do with Ali who refused to pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr?
      Can they threaten him? But he is the famous hero who was able to extinguish the Arab heroes, kill their brave men, and compete with their "wolves"!!
      Can they deceive him (A) into doing so?! But Ali is that cautious man who is aware in such matters!!
      Nevertheless, allegiance must be taken from Ali at any rate.
      But behold! What would Lady Fatima's stand be had Ali (A) been forced to pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr? In other Words, what can be done if Lady Fatima (A) chooses to defend her husband?!
      Should they ignore all these obstacles?! Or what should they do?!
      This created an unsolvable problem for the coup leaders who spent long hours reflecting on the issue. Meanwhile, Imam Ali (A) confined himself to his house to collect the Holy Quran, after realizing the fruitlessness of his efforts to regain his rights. He was virtually secluded from the outside world. This situation was disadvantageous to the coup leaders, for in Ali's refusal to pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr lies a deep meaning and an excuse for others to object to Abu Bakr's seizure of power.
      Yet, opinions met of the necessity to bring Ali (A) by force to the Mosque, whatever the price may be. Especially in light of the fact, which they later came to realize, that he was more concerned about the Islamic interests than his own. Therefore, a commissioned force led by Umar's slave boy, Qunfud, was sent to Ali's house. When this force reached the house, Qunfud requested permission to enter so they may speak to him regarding the issue; but Ali (A) refused them permission to enter; after which they returned to the Mosque and said to Abu Bakr and Umar:
      "We were refused permission to enter."
      Umar said: "Go back and if you are denied permission again, then enter (the house) with force."
      So the group once again asked for permission, but Fatima (A) said: "You are prohibited from entering my house without permission."
      Upon hearing this, the members of the force went back-save Qunfud. They informed Umar that they were not allowed to enter the house. This angered Umar who said:
      "What do women have in this?!"
      Events continued to occur, and two pictures are drawn in front to us:
      First:
      Umar orders his slave boy to start Fatima's house on fire! A man objects by saying:
      "But Fatima is in it."
      Yet Umar replied: "So what!!"
      Second: (According to Jahiz and the author of Abaqat Al-Anwar):
      The Prophet assigned Ali (A) as his successor. All the companions had full knowledge of this assignment. Yet, Umar forges the fact for the sake of Abu Bakr and strikes Fatima's womb, which caused her to miscarry Mohsin.
    60. At any rate, Ali (A) was forced to the Mosque. When Fatima Zahra (A) saw this, she followed him and addressed Abu Bakr by saying:
      "Do you wish to make me a widow?! By Allah if you do not let him go, I will uncover my head, rip my shirt, and go to my Father's tomb and cry to my Lord..."
      So she (A) took Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain's hands and proceeded towards her father's (S) tomb!
      When Imam Ali (A) saw the seriousness of the situation, he immediately interfered and said to Salman:
      "Prevent Muhammad's daughter (from reaching her father's grave) for surely I can see the outskirts of Medina being sunk into the earth."
      Salman later said:
      "I was near Lady Fatima when, by Allah, I saw the foundations of the Mosque's walls being elevated up to a point that had a man wanted to go from under them, he would have been able to do so. So I said:
      `My Mistress, surely Allah, the Exalted, sent your father to be mercy, thus do not become the cause of His wrath. "'
    61. These noble stands of Fatima, forced Abu Bakr and Umar to release Ali (A); Fatima (A) returned home after setting the most honorable example of devotion to her husband. The motive which causes us to further pursue the history of Fadak and to extract the continuation of events after it for a period of three centuries from the texts of the historical books is to clarify three questions
      a. The rule of annulment of inheritance from prophets made by the Holy Prophet (PBUH&HF), in other words, that the property of the Holy Prophet (PBUH&HF) is a part of the public treasurey and belongs to all Muslims. This was claimed by the first Caliph Abu Bakr, and was rejected by his successors, both by the next two caliphs (Umar and Uthman), and by the Umayyads and the Abbasids. We must consider that the lawfulness and rightfulness of their caliphate depended upon the correctness and the lawfulness of the first caliph and his actions.
      b. Imam Ali (as) and the descendants of Fatimah never had any hesitation regarding the rightfulness and justifiability of their claim. They insisted and confirmed that Fatima (as) had always been right and that Abu Bakr's claim had always been rejected, and they did not yield to the false claim.
      c. Whenever one of the Caliphs made a decision to put into effect Allah's command, in regards to Fadak, to observe justice and equity, and to restore the right to the entitled one in conformity with Islamic rules, he used to return back the Fadak to the descendants of Fatima (as) and to hand it over to them.
    62. Umar was the most harsh person in keeping Fatima (as) from Fadak and her inheritance as he himself confessed: When the Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HF) died I came along with Abu Bakr to Ali ibn Abu Talib, and said: ' What do you have to say about what has been left by the Messenger of Allah? ', He replied: ' We have the most rights with the Holy Prophet (PBUH&HF). ' I (Umar) said: ' Even those properties of Khaibar? ' He said: ' Yes, even those of Khaybar. ' I said : ' Even those of Fadak? ', He replied: ' Yes, even those of Fadak.' Then I said: 'By Allah, we say no, even if you cut our necks with saws.'  Sunni reference: - Majma al Zawaid, vol 9 pp 39-40
    63. The book of Allah is the guide of it's followers towards the pleasure of Allah . Listening (carefully) to it leads to the salvation . The enlightened & conspicuous evidences & proofs of Allah can be obtained through it. And (also the knowledge ) of His interpreted intentions & fear invoking constraining prohibitions & His sufficing testimonies & conspicuous arguments & desired virtues & allowed endowments & gifts & obligatory divine laws .(can be obtained from it.) (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    64. Lady Fatima Zahra (a.s) was calm and patient when the women of the Muhajireen and Ansar came to visit her. Suwaid Ibn Ghaflah said: "When Fatima was inflicted with her illness, the women of the Muhajireen an Ansar gathered around her and said: How are you doing daughter of Allah s Messenger?'
      Fatima praised Allah, prayed for her father and said: "I have become, by Allah, to have feelings of resentment for your world, detesting your men; I have casted them after testing them, hated them after examining them. Thus, shameful is the defiling of honor, playing after being serious, striking the soft rocks, the slackening of spears, the foolishness of judgments and the misguidance of wants.
    65. Evil indeed are (the works) which their souls have sent forward before them (with the result) that Allah's wrath is on them, and in torment will they abide.
    66. Certainly it (Allah s wrath) has control of their affairs, held them responsible (for deserving it), and launched its disagreement on them.
    67. So, may the unjust ones be done away with, cursed, and damned.
    68. Woe unto them!
    69. How they have snatched it a way from the foundations of the Message, the fundamentals of prophethood and guidance, the place of descent for the Devoted Spirit, and he who is clever in the affairs of this world and the hereafter? (She means that they usurped Ali's right.)
    70. Surely; (their action) is clear loss? Why were they hostile to Abu Al-Hassan?
    71. They took vengeance, by Allah, from him, for his unbiased sword, his carelessness about his death (i.e., his unprecedented courage), his deadly assaults his severe encounters, and his anger for the sole sake of Allah, Exalted is His Name. By Allah, had they prevented each other from assuming the reigns of power, which Allah s Messenger entrusted to him, he (cuJZ3.) would have held it and led them smoothly,
    72. He would not have harmed them the size of a thread,
    73. Nor would his followers stammer, (meaning they would have lived in harmony under his rule).
    74. He surely would have delivered them to a spring pure, lush, abundant, flowing over its banks-yet its sides are not muddy.
    75. He certainly would have brought them back satisfied and advised them secretly and publicly without providing himself with any availing thing.
    76. Nor would he favor himself with the worldly things with any gain, save that which would quench the thirst of the thirsty, and feed the hungry.
    77. Surely the abstinent would have been distinguished from the desirous, and the truthful from her.
    78. Had the people of the town believed and feared Allah, We should indeed have opened out to them (all kinds of) blessings from Heaven and Earth; but they rejected (the truth), and We brought them to book for their misdeeds.
    79. And the wrongdoers of this generation; the results of their deeds will soon overtake them (too), and they will never be able to frustrate (Our Plan)!'
    80. Indeed. Come to see!
    81. As long as you live, time shall show you amazing events!
    82. I wish. I knew what proof they have for that which they have done?
    83. On what foundation have they stood?
    84. On what reliable grip have they held?
    85. Upon whose progeny have they encroached and spoke against?
    86. Evil, indeed, is the patron and evil the companion!
    87. They have exchanged, by Allah, the daring for the tales and the capable for the impotent. Thus, away with a people who (mistakenly) believe they are doing well (to themselves);
    88. For surely, they are the ones who make mischief but they realize (it) not.
    89. Woe unto them!
    90. Is he who guides towards truth more worthy to be followed, or the who finds not guidance (himself) unless he is guided?
    91. What then is the matter with you?
    92. How do you judge ?
    93. But-upon my life! it has already conceived (meaning that it is too late to do anything).
    94. So wait until its fruit comes about.
    95. Then shall ye fill your buckets with pure blood and fatal venom?
    96. That day the dealers in falsehood will perish!
    97. And the ones who come to follow shall know the evil which their successors have established!
    98. Then awaken the aversion in yourselves to your world! Prepare your hearts for calamities, Adapt yourselves to a sharp sword; an assault of a tyrant enemy, an overwhelming commotion, and atrocity from oppressors who shall leave your booty worthless, and your crops unharvested; Alas!
    99. What a pity!
    100. How will ye be treated?
    101. But indeed it hath been obscured from your sight.
    102. Shall we then compel you to accept it when ye are averse to it?
    103. Swaid Ibn Ghaflah added: "The women informed their men what Lady Fatima Zahra (a.s) had said then a group of men went to her and said:
    104. "O you Mistress of all women!
      Had Abu Al-Hassan mentioned this to us before we made the oath, and gave the promise (to Abu Bakr), then surely we would not have exchanged him (Imam Ali A. S.) for anyone else!!!'
    105. Fatima said: "Leave me alone! Surely there is not an excuse for you after (I have already) spoken to you; and there shall be no command after (I have seen) your shortcomings.
    106. Allah mad e the faith for you as a purity from polytheism ( & infidelity). (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    107. And (made service the cause of your getting distant (purification) from pride (egoism). (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    108. And rendered alms for the purity of your soul & flourishment & expansion of your sustenance.  (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    109. Bihar v.10: Imam Ja'far Ibn Muhammad (A) and Jabir Ibn Abdullah al-Ansari said:
      "Once the Prophet saw Fatima wearing a cloak of camel skin while grinding (grain) with her hands; and holding her child. Tears came from the Prophet's eyes and he said:
      'Daughter! bear with the hardships of this world and later you will enjoy the blessings of the Hereafter.'
      Fatima replied: `Messenger of Allah, praise be to Allah for His benefactions and thanks be to Him for his gifts.' (It was then that) Allah revealed:
      "And soon will the Guardian-Lord give thee (that wherewith) thou shalt be well pleased."
    110. And rendered fasting for the maintains & firmness of your sincerity .  (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    111. Al-Majlisi, quoting Fural Ibn Ibrahim's interpretation of The Holy Quran in his book Al-Bihar, said:
      'Abu Saeed al-Khudari said: One morning Ali Ibn Abu Talib woke up very hungry and said: 'Fatima, do you have anything to feed us?'
      She answered: `No, by Him who honored father with Prophet hood, and honored you with successor ship, we have nothing edible this morning, and we haven't had any food for two days save that which I have preferred to give you and our two children, Hassan and Hussain.'
      Ali (A) said: 'Fatima! Why didn't you tell me, so I could bring some food for you?'
      Fatima answered: 'Abu Al-Hassan, I surely become ashamed before my God to ask you to do something you cannot do.'
      At this, Ali Ibn Abu Talib left Fatima, with full trust that Allah would help him. He borrowed a dinar, and while he was holding the dinar and trying to buy some food for his family, he came upon Miqdad Ibn Al Aswad.
      The sun had burnt Al-Miqdad's face and feet on that exceptionally hot day. When Ali (A) saw him, he exclaimed surprisingly:
      `Miqdad, what brings you out of your home at this hour?'
      Miqdad answered: 'Abu Al-Hassan, ask me not about what I have left behind in the house.'
      Ali (A) said: `My brother, I cannot leave you without knowing your problem.'
      Miqdad then said: 'Abu Al-Hassan, for Allah's sake and your sake leave me alone, and do not ask about my condition!!'
      Imam Ali said: `My brother, you should not hide your condition from me.'
      Miqdad replied: 'Abu Al-Hassan, now that you insist, by Him who honored Muhammad with Prophethood and honored you with successorship, nothing forced me out of my house save poverty. I left my children starving; when I heard their cries, there remained no place for me on earth-I have come out of my house in depression; this is my story.'
      Imam Ali (A) cried when he heard the story; he cried until his beard was wet from tears and said:
      `By Allah, that which forced you out of your house and also forced me out of my house; I borrowed a dinar, but I prefer you to have it.'
      When Imam Ali (A) had given the dinar to Miqdad, he went to the Mosque and performed his Dhuhr (noon), Asr (afternoon) and Maghrib (evening) prayers. When the Messenger of Allah had completed his prayers, he signaled Ali, who was in the first line, to follow him. Ali (A) obediently followed him out of the Mosque and after the Prophet greeted him said:
      'Abu Al-Hassan, do you have some food for dinner so that I can accompany you?'
      Imam Ali was too shy to answer the Messenger; but the Prophet of Allah (S) had detailed knowledge about the dinar and what had happened to it; for Allah, the Exalted, had revealed to His Prophet to have dinner at Ali's house that night. When Ali did not answer, the Prophet said: 'Abu Al-Hassan, why don't you say no, so I may leave you; or yes, so I may accompany you?'
      Imam Ali (A) said: 'Accompany me!!'
      The Prophet then took Ali's hand and proceeded toward Fatima's house. When they arrived, Fatima was just finishing her prayers and there was a pan oil fire behind her. When she heard the Prophet coming, who was the dearest person to her, she greeted him and he wiped his hand on her head and said:
      `How is your evening, my daughter?'
       She answered: `Fine!'
      He then said: `Give us some dinner, may Allah bless you, and surely He has.'
      Fatima (A) placed the pan in front of the Prophet (S) and Ali Ibn Abu Talib...
      At that moment, the Messenger of Allah put his hand on Ali's shoulder and said:
      'Ali, this is a substitute for your dinar. This is a reward from Allah for the dinar; surely Allah grants whoever He wills without limit.'
      The Prophet (S) cried and said:
      "Praise be to Allah, Who insisted on rewarding you in this world, too, and made you Ali-like Zakariya and Fatima like Maryam Bint Imran, for whenever Zakariya entered the Mehrab, he found Maryam with her subsistence."
    112. And Allah et Hajj for the consolidation & reinforcement of the religion. (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    113. Allah executed & rendered justice (for the sake of putting together & harmonization of the hearts) . (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    114. And (Allah set) the subordination & obedience of us (the household of the Prophet s.a.w for the security of society's system & our Immamate as a safety from seggregation & disunity).  (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    115. And ( Allah made ) Jahad (holy war) , the honour & glory for Islam & abjectness & humbleness for the infidels & hypocrites. (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    116. And ( Allah rendered) patience as a help for getting reward. (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    117. And (Allah caused) commanding goodness & forbidding to do evil for the amendment & correction of society & the common folks (public). (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    118. And (Allah made) the kindness to parents as a protectional (shield) to His wrath & displeasure .(AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    119. And Allah made joining & connecting with the kinship & cognation , the cause of lengthening of life. (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    120. And Allah made law of retaliation (revenge for homicide) as the security of blood (from being shed) . (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    121. Bihar v.10, quoting the previous source wrote:
      "The Prophet said: `When I saw her (Fatima), I remembered what would happen to her after my death. It is as if I (could see) humiliation entering her house, her sanctity violated, her right seized, her inheritance usurped, her side broken, and her unborn child being caused to be aborted, all while she is crying:
      "Mohammad!"
      'But she will not be answered, she asks for help but she will not be helped. Surely she will remain afflicted, sad and crying after me, remembering the cease of revelation from her father's house at one time, and remembering being separated from me another time. She will become estranged at night, when she used to spend listening to me reciting the Quran. She then will see herself humiliated after she was honored during the days of her father...'"
    122. And Allah executed the wow performing as a medium fro forgiveness. (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    123. And (Allah rendered) the correct use of weight & measure (units) a medium for stopping from selling less (than acual) . (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    124. And (Allah rendered) prohibition from drinking wine the cause of taking distance from contaminations , (evils). (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    125. It is quoted in v.10 of Bihar that Imam Hussain (A) quoted Imam Hassan (A) as saying: "Once, on a Friday night, I watched my mother, Fatima, pray all night long. She kept making Ruku' and prostrating until dawn. I heard her supplicate for the believers by name; but she did not supplicate for herself, so I asked: `Mother, why don't you supplicate for yourself as you supplicate for others?'
      She answered: `Son! Prefer your neighbour over yourself. "'
    126. And Allah made the prohibition to accuse someone of adultery a protection (shield) for avoiding (His) curse. (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    127. Bihar v.6: According to The Interpretation of The Quran written by Furat Ibn Ibrahim, Jabir Ibn Abdullah Ansari reported that Allah's Messenger (S) said to Fatima (A) during the illness, which caused him to pass away:
      "May my father and mother be your sacrifice! Call your husband for me."
    128. Fatima then told Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain:
      "Go tell your father to come, and that your grandfather summons him."
      Thus, Al-Hussain went and called him to come. When Ali Ibn Abu Talib (A) entered the house, he found
    129. Fatima sitting near Allah's Messenger (S) and saying:
      'How distressed I am for your agony, Father!!'
      The Prophet said:
      'There is no agony for your father after this day, Fatima. Yet, do as your father did when (his son) Ibrahim passed away:
      Then I said:
      `Eyes spill tears, and the heart may be affected, but we shall not say that which angers the Lord. Yet, surely we are saddened by (your death) Ibrahim!!'"
    130. And ( Allah made) refraining from theft for the sake of positive ness & affirmation for modesty . (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    131. Al-Hassan al-Basri said: "There was not a woman in this Ummah more submitting (to Allah) than Fatima. She used to pray until her feet became swollen."
    132. Imam Sadiq (A) quoted Jabir Ibn Abdullah Al-Ansari as saying:
      "One day when we had finished the Asr prayer with the Messenger of Allah an old Arab immigrant man, who was wearing worn-out clothes and was barely able to walk because of his old age and weakness came by. The Prophet asked the old man about his affair; the old man answered:
      `Prophet of Allah I am starving, so feed me, I am naked, so clothe me, and poor, so help me The Prophet then said: `Surely I find nothing to give you. Yet, he who guides to goodness is equal to him who performs it. So go to the house of she who loves Allah and His Messenger, and Allah and His Messenger love her. The one who prefers Allah over herself I mean Fatima.'
      Fatima's house was near the Prophet's house. He asked Bilal to lead the man to her house. When the old man reached the house, he cried out:
      `Peace be upon you, O household of prophet hood, the (dwellers of the place where) angels frequently visit, where Gabriel-the holy spirit-descends to bring what the Lord of the Worlds reveals.'
      Fatima said: `Peace be upon you; who are you?'
      The old Beduin answered: `I am an old Arab man; I have immigrated to your father, The Master of mankind, from a distant place. Daughter of Muhammad, I am hungry and in need of clothing, so console me-may Allah bless you.'
      When this occurred, the Prophet, Ali, and Fatima had not eaten for three days. Yet, Fatima gave him a tanned ram skin, which was used as Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain's bed.
      Then Fatima told the poor man: `Take this, may Allah substitute it for you by a better gift by selling it.'
      The old man replied: Daughter of Muhammad, I complain to you of hunger and you give me a ram's skin? How can I eat with this?'
      When Fatima heard what the old man had to say, she gave him the necklace, which was given to her by Fatima Bint Hamza Ibn Abd al-Muttalib.
      The old man took the necklace and went to the Mosque to meet the Prophet who was sitting in the presence of his companions. He went to the Prophet and said: `Messenger of Allah, Fatima Bint Muhammad gave me this necklace and said: `Sell it, for Allah will grant you a solution to your problem.'
      When the Prophet heard what the man had to say, he cried and said: `Indeed, Allah will grant you a solution, for Fatima Bint Muhammad, the Mistress of all women gave you this necklace.'
      Meanwhile, Ammar Ibn Yasir (may Allah bless his soul) said: `Messenger of Allah, do I have your permission to buy this necklace?'
      The Prophet answered: `Buy it Ammar, surely if all of mankind and Jinn participate in buying it Allah will not torture them in Hellfire.'
      Ammar said: `How much do you want for it?'
      The old Beduin said: A meal of bread and meat, a Yemeni shirt to cover my private parts and to perform my prayers in front of my Lord, and a dinar so I can return to my family.'
      Ammar, who had just sold his share of booty from the battle of Khaibar, told the man: I will give you twenty (20) dinars, two hundred (200) dirhams, a Yemeni shirt, my horse to take you home, and your need of wheat bread and meat.'
      The old then said: `What a generous man you are!!'
      When Ammar had fulfilled his promise to the old man, the later came back to the Prophet (S) who said: Are you satisfied and clothed?'
      The old man said: Yes, and I have become rich; may my father and mother be your sacrifice.'
      The Prophet (S) then said: `So reward Fatima for her kindness.'
      The old man supplicated: `O Allah, surely You are our God whenever we ask You;
      `We have no other God to worship besides you;
      'You are the one who grants us beneficence in all conditions;'
      `O Allah, grant Fatima that which no eye has ever seen, and ear has ever heard ....'
      During that time, Ammar had perfumed the necklace with mush wrapped it in a Yemeni shirt, and gave it to one of his slaves by the name of Sahm, who he had bought with the money that he had received for selling his share of the Khaibarian booty. He told Sahm:
      `Take this necklace and give it to the Messenger of Allah (S) and tell him that I give you to him also.'
      When Sahm had delivered the message, the Prophet (S) said: `Take the necklace to Fatima and I give you to her also.' When the slave had told Fatima the message, she (A) took the necklace and told the slave that he was free.
      Upon hearing Fatima, Sahm laughed, so Fatima asked him about the reason that made him laugh. He answered: `I smiled when I thought of the abundance of goodness put in this necklace; it fed a hungry man, clothed a naked man, satisfied a poor man, freed a slave and came back to its original owner." The author of the book Bisharat A-Moustafa was quoted by Al-Bihar v.10
    133. Abu Nu'aym in Dala'el al-Nobowwah, Ibn Hajar in al-Sawa'iq al-Muhriqah, and others have reported that Abu Ayuoub Ansari said:
      "The Messenger of Allah said: A caller shall call from the sole of the Throne: O gathered people, lower your heads and cast your eyes down so that Fatima Bint Muhammad may pass on the Path. ' He added: `She then passes accompanied by seventy thousand Huri Al-Een, as if they were a flashing light."
    134. And Allah prohibited polytheism for the sake of (bring about) sincerity in (His) adoration & worship . (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    135. The Holy Lady Fatema, bereaved only a day or two before, deeply sunk in grief; standing behind the door of her abode remonstrated saying: "O' people! it is only yesterday that my father, the holy Prophet, departed from you and today you have the audacity to attack his house in which his daughter is mourning for him, which door he did not enter but with a salutation on its inmates".
    136. The celebration took place in the fourth Heaven near Al-Bait al-Ma'mour (the constantly attended house of Allah). It was a unique event the like of which the universe had never encountered before. Angels from all the Heavens gathered in the fourth Heaven and erected the Minbar of Honor, which is made of light. Then Allah, The Almighty, revealed to one of His angels, Rahil, to ascend the Minber and praise and glorify His names as He deserves. Rahil, who was the most eloquent of all angels, did what his Lord revealed to him and said:
      "Praise be to Allah, since creation of the first (creatures); He who is ever-lasting (even) after the cessation of all beings; We praise Him for making us spiritual angels, who are submitting to His Godship, and for making us grateful to Him for His benevolence on us.
      He safeguarded us from craving for lusts; and made our only pleasure and enjoyment to glorify and exalt Him.
      He Who extended His Mercy (upon everything); and bestowed His benevolence (upon everyone). Exalted is His Name from the polytheism of polytheists of the dwellers of Earth, And Elevated by His Creatures from the fabrications of the atheists. Allah, The Omnipotent King, chose the one who was bestowed with special Divine Honor, and the worshipper of His Greatness, for His worshipper, the Mistress of women and the daughter of the best of prophets, the Master of all messengers and the Imam of the pious; so He brought into relations the Prophet with a man from his kin. One who is his believing companion, and was prompt in answering his call -Ali the devout, with Fatima the splendid and the daughter of the Messenger. "
      Then Gabriel added the following words, which were from Allah, the Exalted:
      "Praise is Mygarment Greatness is My Magnificence
      All the creatures are My slaves men and women. I give Fatima, My Worshipper in marriage to Ali My chosen worshipper. So bear witness O My angels." [1]
    137. AbdurRahman As-Safawi in Nuzhat al-Majalis v.2, p.223, reported that Jabir Ibn Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him) said:
      "Umme Ayman came to the Prophet crying; the Prophet asked her why she was crying?
      She replied:
      "A man from the Ansar just informed me that his daughter has just been married, and that sprinkled sweets and almonds on her. Thus, this reminded me that when Fatima married Ali, you did not sprinkle anything on her."
      There-upon the Prophet (S) said:
      "By Allah Who sent me with honor, and gifted me with the Messenger ship; when Allah gave Fatima to Ali in marriage, He ordered the nearest angels to surround the Throne-including Gabriel, Michael and Israfil. He also commanded birds to sing and ordered the tree of Tuba to sprinkle them with fresh pearls, white gems, green chrysolites and red rubies."
      According to another tradition, he said:
      "The marriage took place near the Lotus tree in the seventh Heaven, on the night of Ascension. (On that occasion) Allah revealed to the tree: `Sprinkle all that you bear on them.' So it sprinkled them with gems, jewelry and corals."
    138. Al-Hafiz Abu Nu'aym reported in Hilyat al-awliya v.5, p.59, that Abdullah Ibn Masoud said: "...then Allah commanded the Tree of Paradise to bear gems and jewelry; He then ordered it to sprinkle them over the angels. So whoever received more than the others on that day, will be proud of it until the Day of Resurrection."
    139. Certainly , an apostle has come to you from among yourselves ; grievous to him is your falling into distress, excessively solicitous respecting you ;to the believers (he is) compassionate, merciful. So if you assay & recognize him you will find he is my father not the father of your women & the brother of my cousin, (Ali a.s) not that of your men. And how nice a relation I have to him. So he propagated his prophetic (mission). He always used to turn his face from the polytheists. And fought against them till he beat them up. He would invite people towards Allah by wisdom , & beautiful admonition. He broke the idols & scattered the aggregation of polytheists in a way that they ran away (from the battle of fields) , so that finally the hidden secret of oneness of Allah became manifested by him.  And he made the logic of religion reach the ears (of the people) & settled down the foam of the camels of satan & turned the slogan yelling of those devils silent. And downed the agents of hypocrisy & mutual commitments of the infidels got dissolved till such time that , you (people) spoke to a group of enlightened & modest men with the words of oneness of Allah & sincerity. (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    140. You were on the edge of a fire ditch , & were a cup of drink & the morsal of greedy one & a firebrand of every hasty one & were being trampled on (by other nations) & drank from the contaminated waters gathered over in ditches & your energy (food) was (secured by) the leaves of tress & desert grass. And fro your abjectness & abasement you were always afraid hat those around you might abduct you in the winking of an eye. So , Allah liberated you (of these misfortunes ) through my father Mohammad s.a.w , In spite of it that He s.a.w was involved & at war against the intrepid & the hungry wolves of Arab & the stubborns refractories of the people of the books (Jews & Christians ). Whenever his opponents would lit the fire of war , Allah extinguished it to your benefit. (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-316).
    141. Kashf al Ghumma: Imam Ali (A) quoted Fatima as saying:
      "The Messenger of Allah (S) said: 'Fatima, he who praises you, will be forgiven by Allah; Who will make him my companion where ever in Paradise I may be."
    142. The Prophet s.a.w said to Fatima a.s " What is the thing which is a blessing for women? " She said that , " she must not see a man & a man must not see her . " (Bait ul Ahznan , P-22).
    143. One day a lady came to Fatima a.s & said , " I have a weak old mother who does not know a few problems about her service (prayer) . She has sent me towards you to question you (about them) .Thus Fatima a.s answered her (questions) . And the number of her queries reached to ten & Fatima a.s replied to all her questions . Then she (the women got a shamed because of the high number of her questions . And said , " Oh daughter of the Prophet s.a.w , " I do not put you to more inconvenience than this ".  Fatima a.s said Ask me what you do not know . Have you seen a person who is one day hired to carry a heavy thing to he roof top from ground for an amount (equal to) a thousand dinners & he may feel himself tired." She said No. Fatima a.s said , " I have been hired by Allah to get a wages which if the space between the earth & sky filled up with pearls still (That wages) would he more than it for each of the questions I may answer you. Therefore, I deserve it that I must not feel tired & exhausted. (BIHAR UL ANVAR , VOL2 , P-3)
    144. Oh Allah ! belittle me in my eyes & glorify & magnify Your station to me . And inspire me (about) Your obedience & the practice which may cause Your pleasure & the shunning & evading from things (matters) which are the cause of Your wrath, oh the most merciful of all ! (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-323).
    145. Extracts of J. Zahra's (as) Sermon:
      Praise be to Allah, I am thankful to Him for the capabilities that He has given me.
    146. I bear witness that there is no God but Allah who is without a parallel and no one is His partner. This is a call, the essence of which is love and purity. That Allah who cannot be seen with our eyes; our tongue is unable to state His praise. He created all without any earlier precedent.
    147. I bear witness that my father, Messenger of Allah was the slave of Allah and His messenger. He was chosen before he was sent. He was awarded this position before his coming into being.
    148. 'O servants of Allah, you are responsible to His "Orders and Prohibitions". His religion and His Revelation. You are, the representative of Allah! and a preacher from His side! And the protector of Allah's right is in your midst [Ali] He who protected the one who brought the testament of Allah to you.
    149. Whatever I am telling, its beginning and its end is the same. I do not indulge into contradictory talk.
    150. Whatever, I am telling is stark truth. I do not practise any wrong.
    151. When Allah chose from the dwell of messengers His Messenger (saww), He selected for him the honored place of chosen ones. No sooner than it was done, the discord and envy that was in the hearts, manifested amongst you. The veil of religion was turned up. Those who have lost the correct path, started opening their mouths.
    152. Unknown persons started to show off. Slogans in the interest of falsity were raised, and a conspiracy spread in the society.
    153. The Devil came out of his hole and called you to his side, because he found you waiting for his call and be fooled. He invited you to stay and ignited the fire of anger, the reflection of which became apparent on your face.
    154. This was the reason that you marked somebody's camel apart from your own, and you entered into somebody's river side. You started searching for what was not yours. Finally you started usurping the Government when not many days had passed since the demise of the Prophet (saww). Our woes and wounds were still bleeding, and even the Prophet (saww) was not buried, that you advanced an excuse saying that "A mischief has been averted".
    155. Can there be any greater mischief than the one that has overtaken you. Yes of course hell has taken them in its folds.
    156. This action was not expected from you, What are you doing? Where are you going? When the book of Allah is present in your midst everything in that is glittering and all its signs are fully clear as a Crystal. Its prohibition are apparent and clear, and all orders graphically clear, but you have put them behind your back. Have you turned your face from them? Or you are aiming at something else? Alas! it's to be highly regretted that tyrants have adopted dirty ways, instead of taking up a Qur'anic path.
    157. You have suddenly flared up the fire of mischief, and fanned its flames. You have assented to the talk of the Satan, who was misleading you. You have started to extinguish the light of the Religion of Allah and started obliterating the traditions of the Prophet (saww), and in the pretext of the froth of fermenting milk, you have silently sipped it all.
    158. You were bent on confining the family and progeny of the Prophet (saww) in a corner. We preferred to observe patience, but with sword hanging on our neck and a spear waiting to make a thrust in our chest.
    159. How wonderful it is that you think that the Almighty Allah has not granted us the right of inheritance, and that we will not get the inheritance of the Prophet (saww). Are you following the rules of the Age of illiteracy. For believers, no decision is better than the decision of Allah.
    160. Are you ignorant of these problems? Yes, you are fully aware of them. The fact is clear as a sun. You know that I am the daughter of the Prophet (saww).
    161. O' Muslim brethren! Is my inheritance going to be snatched by force? O' son of Qahafa answer me, does Qur'an say that you get your fathers' inheritance and I should not get my fathers' inheritance. Have you purposely disowned the Book of Allah; and have cast it behind your back. Whereas Qur'an says: Sulaiman got his father's (inheritance); Dawood got his fathers'. Regarding Yahya bin Zakariyya He said, "O' Allah: grant me a son, who could be my Successor and of the progeny of Yaqoob."
    162. Have you formed an idea that I will not get my parents inheritance?
    163. Did Allah, reveal a special verse for you, striking out my father from its purview, or you say two persons professing the same religion did not have the right to inherit each other's (property). Is mine and my father's religion not one?
    164. Or do you treat an average follower of Qur'an better than my father and cousin. If it is that case, take my inheritance like a saddled camel waiting to be taken advantage of. Ride it. BUT bear in mind that I will meet you on the day of rising and will put up my demand.
    165. What an excellent day it would be when Allah will adorn the seat of Justice and Mohammed Mustafa (saww) would be a plaintiff.
    166. Allah has obligated faith to make you clean of polytheism, saying prayers to make you clean of haughtiness, alms to make your spirits clear and increase your sustenance, fasting to maintain your sincerity, Hadj to stand your religion, justice to strengthen your hearts, obeying us for your community's order and comfort, our governing to prevent separation, Jihad for Islam's splendor, patience to help you get eligible for reward, calling people to goodness for everybody's welfare, being generous to parents to avoid his anger, union of kindred to increase the population, retaliation to save bloods, vowing to be exposed to Allah's forgiveness, has made bankruptcy the result of using short weights, and has forbidden drinking wine to keep you away from uncleanness, Ghazf (false accusation of intercourse) to avoid imprecation and curse and stealing for remaining chaste. Allah has forbidden polytheism so that people be sincere in their obedience to Allah .So "Fear Allah as much as He deserves be pious and don't die other than you are Muslim." Obey Allah in his obligations and prohibited things, because" Only aware people fear Allah".
    167. Praise and Eulogy is for Allah for the blessing and bounties, which He has bestowed. And thanks to HIM upon what He revealed (to His servants) And Praise is for HIM upon the common boons and blessings which He bestowed upon His servants without their request And upon the comprehensive and complete blessings which He granted to all and sundry and gave it to us, consecutively those graces and favors, which are uncountable.
    168. And are irredeemable and uncompensatable due to their plentiful ness of number. And the imagination of their end is out of the reach of human mind.
    169. He invited the servant to thankfulness for the sake of the consecutive and continuous enhancement of blessings. And opened the door of eulogy and Praise (of Allah) upon them so that He may make his favors and beneficences great and plentiful for them.
    170. I testify that there is no Diety (Lord) except the sole and matchless Allah. And the testification of the singleness of Allah is a word that Allah has declared sincerity (as) it's reality, and made the hearts the centre of it's contact and union. And has made the specifications and research of the oneness of Allah's station obvious and evident in the light of meditation. The Allah Who cannot be seen by the eyes and tongues are unable and baffled to describe His virtues and attributes. And the intelligence and apprehension of man is helpless and destitute from the imagination of his howness.
    171. Allah made all the beings without previous matter and sample and shape and pattern. And made them wear the dress of life by His main and might and created them according to His Devine will and Intention short of it that He might have needed their creation or have wished any benefit for Himself from their shaping and sketching except this that he wanted to give a proof of His wisdom and make the people (creations) aware about His obedience and submission and invited them to his servitude and worship and make His Invitation grand and ostentatious.
    172. Allah fixed the reward for His obedience and torment for His insubordination and disobedience so that He may restrain His servants from His wrath and fury and lead them to His paradise.
    173. And I testify that my father Mohammad (SAWW) is the apostle and the servant of Allah. And Allah selected and chose him before appointing him at the post of Prophet hood. And He named him before choosing and selecting him. And chose him before envying and delegating him. Then all the creations were hidden and covered in the covers of unseen and were hidden amid the screen and curtain of fear and fright and stayed near the last and final border of non entity (nothingness) for Allah was aware of and knew the end of matters and because of His encompassing the incidents of times and ages and His knowledge of the predestinates.
    174. Allah appointed him (as apostle) so that he may complete and finalize His matter and Implement His order and materialize His decrees and predestinates.
    175. One day the Prophet (SAWW) said to Fatima (AS) what is the thing which is a blessing for woman?'
      She said that, 'she must not see a man (stranger and not intimate) and a man must not see her.'
    176. One day a lady came to Fatima (AS) said 'I have a weak old mother who does not know a few problems about her service (prayers). She has sent me towards you to question you (about them). Thus Fatima answered her (questions). And the number of her queries reached to ten and Fatima (AS) replied to all her questions. Then she (the woman got a shamed because of the high number of her questions. And said, 'Oh daughter of the Prophet (SAWW), 'I do not put you to more inconvenience than this.'
    177. Fatima (AS) said, 'Ask me what you do not know. Have you ever seen a person who is one day hired to carry a heavy thing to the roof top from ground for an amount (equal to) a thousand dinnars (nearly a hundred thousand miskal (unit of weight) of gold) and he may feel himself tired.'
    178. She said 'No'. Fatima (AS) said, 'I have been hired by Allah to get a wages which if the space between the earth and sky is filled up with pearls still (That wages) would he more than it for each of the questions I may answer you. Therefore, I deserve it that I must not feel tired exhausted.'
    179. An excerpt from a lengthy speech delivered at the mosque of the prophet Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa (peace of Allah be upon him and his pure progeny) at Medina in defense of her right of inheritance:
    180. Allah has made faith (iman) [the means] to purify you from polytheism; And (made) prayer to guard you from arrogance/pride (egoism); and rendered alms (zakat) to chasten one’s soul and increase one’s sustenance; and prescribed fasting (saum) for the maintenance and firmness of one’s sincerity; and set pilgrimage (Hajj) for the consolidation and reinforcement of the religion; and enjoined justice (adl) for the sake of harmonization of the hearts; and enjoined the subordination and obedience to us (the household of the Prophet SAWW/Ahlul Bayt AS) for the security of Islamic community (millat); and our leadership (Imamate) as a safety from disunity); and prescribed holy war (Jihad) to honor Islam and denounce the infidels and the hypocrites; and patience as a help for getting reward; and caused commanding goodness (amar bil ma’roof) and forbidding to do evil (nahi anil munkar) for the benefit of the people; and kindness to parents as a protection/shield against His (Allah) wrath; and strengthening ties with near kin, the cause of lengthening of life:….. and the forbiddance of drinking wine to guard one from filth (rijs); and Allah prohibited polytheism for the sincere devotion to His Divinity; so O believers fear Allah as you rightly should, and (see that) you die not but Muslims - (Chapter, Aal-e-Imran, verse - 102)
    181. It has been recorded that while playing with Imam Hassan (AS), Hazrat Fatima (SA) would swing him, reciting poems like: "My Hassan, grow up to be like your father and do away with oppression on the way of the Truth. Worship Allah Who Bestows upon us countless blessings and never befriend oppressors."
    182. While play with Imam Hussain (AS), she would recite:
      "You look just like my father (the Prophet) - you don't look like your father (Ali)."
    183. It has been reported in Nuzhat al-Majalis that Anas Ibn Malik said:
      "The Prophet (S) was in the mosque when he said to Ali:
      `Here is Gabriel informing me that Allah gave Fatima to you in marriage, and made forty thousand angels testify to her marriage. He also revealed to the Tree of Tuba to sprinkle them with gems, rubies, jewelry and embellishments. When it had done this, the Huris rushed to collect these gems, rubies, jewelry, and embellishments to exchange them for gifts until the Day of Resurrection. " (Suyuti reported this narration in Tahdheer Al-Khawas.)
    184. One day, she saw her father (sawa) 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 (sawa) 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 empathise 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 has bewitched you!' But when he returned home, he would be greeted by Fatimah (as), 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.
    185. " Oh Allah ! content me with the sustenance you have granted me . And till such time that you keep me alive , hide me & make me sound & prosperous. And forgive me & take pity upon me when I die. (During death process) . Oh Allah ! do not help me in something that you have not predestined for me . And facilitate the achievement of that thing which you have predestined for me. (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-323).
    186. Oh Allah ! bestow upon my parents & all those persons who have rights of their blessings & beneficences upon me, the best of Your rewards. Oh my Allah , spare me the leisure & respite for the object for which You have created me. And do not let me be busy & involved (absolutely) in my commitments. And do not torment me when I ask forgiveness. And do not deprive me of what I yearn & question you for. (AYAN U SHIA ATABA AL JADEED, VOL 1, P-323).
    187. "Father dear, after you, I feel lonely. I have remained perplexed and deprived, my mouth is inclined to silence, and my back is broken, and the wholesome water of life has become bitter to my taste."
    188. And, sometimes she would say: "The person who smells the pure soil of the grave of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.), it is only fair that until the end of his life he should smell no other perfume.
    189. After you, O' father, so much suffering has fallen upon me that, if they were to fall upon bright days, they would turn into dark, gloomy nights."
    190. Under lying are the rhymes which Hazrat Zahra a.s recited upon the mourning of Prophet s.a.w demise. " The person who smells the sweet fragrance of the grave of the Prophet s.a.w so what if he does not smell any other fragrance for long times to come ? Agonies & anguishes & griefs poured upon me in such a way that had they poured upon days those would have turned into nights. (bleak , dark & bewildering) . (AALAM UN NISA , VOL 4 , P-113).
    191. O ` Ali, you will personally perform my funeral rites. 
    192. Those who have displeased my should not be allowed to attend my funeral.
    193. My corpse should be carried to the graveyard at right. Thus Imam ` compliance with her will , performed all the funeral rites and accompanied exclusively by her relatives and sons carried her at night to Jannatu l-Baqi, where she was laid to rest and her wishes fulfilled.
    194. Some reporters say that when the body was lowered into the grave, by Ali, in the grave appeared the two hands of the Holy Prophet, with a voice addressing Ali:- "Come on! Ali! Return thou the part of mine, to me". It is said that Ali shedding tears responded to the voice saying:-
      "I am ashamed of thee O' Apostle of God, for I took Fatema from thee sound in her body but I am now returning her unto thee rib-broken".
      Thus the Holy Lady was the first of the martyrs among the Ahlul-Bait, after the departure of the Holy Prophet.
      It is now left to the intelligent ones of the readers to judge the position of those who annoyed this holy one of God, (i.e., Lady Fatema) under the apostolic announcements of the Holy Prophet and the verse of the Holy Qur'an referred to above.
      It is authentically reported that the Holy Lady once referring to her miserable plight and the sorrowful life she had to lead, addressing her father, the Holy Prophet, standing before his grave, said :- "Oh! Father dear! After thee, fell on me such miseries that had they fallen on bright days, the bright days would have turned into darkest nights.
    195. The Holy Prophet said: "whoever injures (bodily or sentimentally ) Fatimah, injures me ; and whoever injures me injures Allah; and whoever injures Allah practices unbelief. O Fatimah ! If your wrath is incurred, it incurs the wrath of Allah; and if you are happy, it makes Allah happy too."
    196. 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 (sawa) 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 (sawa). She thought about it and realised 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 (sawa) 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 to do with life: they have been created for the hereafter!'
    197. On Fasting She Said: Imam Sadiq (as) says on the authority of his forefathers that J. Zahra (as) had said that: "The man who is observing a fast would not gain anything, when his tongue, ears, and limbs are not safe from sin."
    198. The dust of sorrow covered the space of sky & thge sun has faded & the bright day turned bleak. The earth has become dark & gooomy after the death of the Prophet s.a.w woe ! Alas! what the earth will have much of Jolting upon being separated & parted from him s.a.w . ? It is meritorious & befitting that ast & west of the world may weep upon the parting of Prophet s.a.w & the persons of Muzzir tribe & all of they rest of the emem tribes shed tears. And the great magnificent mountain of the existence & the hidden & covered Kabaah (House of Allah) & it's pillars should shed tears. Oh the terminator & finalizer of the (series of) Prophets! the light of who me is the source of blessing for he world's inhabitants, Be the salutation & blessings of Allah the desender of Holy Quran upon you. (AALAM UN NISA , VOL 4 , P-113).
    199. The best summary exists from Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 53, Number 325:
      Narrated Ayesha (mother of the believers),' After the death of Allah's Apostle Fatima, the daughter of Allah's Apostle asked Abu Bakr As-Siddiq to give her the share of inheritance from what Allah's Apostle had left of the Fai (i.e. booty gained without fighting) which Allah had given him. Abu Bakr said to her, "the holy prophet (saww) had said, 'Our property will not be inherited, whatever we (i.e. prophets) leave is Sadaqah (to be used for charity)." Fatima, the daughter of Allah's Apostle got angry and stopped speaking to Abu Bakr, and continued assuming that attitude till she died. Fatima remained alive for six months after the death of the Holy prophet (saww).
    200. Following you (Prophet s.a.w) inequities (intrigues & revolts) took shape & variant voices were raised so that if you were present & supervising (things)  all these differences & deviations would not have taken place. You set off (on the journey of eternity) from among us & now our condition is like the earth which becomes devoid of the beneficial rains . And your nation upset the order & discipline of matters . So be a witness & do not let their matter get out of your sight. (AALAM UN NISA , VOL 4 , P-122).
    201. In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
      There surely came over man a period of time when he was a thing not worth mentioning.
    202. Surely we have created man from a small life-germ uniting (itself): We mean to try him, so We have made him hearing, seeing.
    203. Surely We have shown him the way: he may be thankful or unthankful.
    204. Surely We have prepared for the unbelievers chains and shackles and a burning fire.
    205. Surely the righteous shall drink of a cup the admixture of which is camphor,
    206. A fountain from which the servants of Allah shall drink; they make it to flow a (goodly) flowing forth.
    207. They fulfill vows and fear a day the evil of which shall be spreading far and wide.
    208. And they give food out of love for Him to the poor and the orphan and the captive:
    209. We only feed you for Allah’s sake; we desire from you neither reward nor thanks:
    210. Surely we fear from our Lord a stern, distressful day.
    211. Therefore Allah will guard them from the evil of that day and cause them to meet with ease and happiness;
    212. And reward them, because they were patient, with garden and silk,
    213. Reclining therein on raised couches, they shall find therein neither (the severe heat of) the sun nor intense cold.
    214. And close down upon them (shall be) its shadows, and its fruits shall be made near (to them), being easy to reach.
    215. And there shall be made to go round about them vessels of silver and goblets which are of glass,
    216. (Transparent as) glass, made of silver they have measured them according to a measure.
    217. And they shall be made to drink therein a cup the admixture of which shall be ginger.
    218. (Of) a fountain therein which is named Salsabil.
    219. And round about them shall go youths never altering in age; when you see them you will think them to be scattered pearls.
    220. And when you see there, you shall see blessings and a great kingdom.
    221. Upon them shall be garments of fine green silk and thick silk interwoven with gold, and they shall be adorned with bracelets of silver, and their Lord shall make them drink a pure drink.
    222. Surely this is a reward for you, and your striving shall be recompensed
    223. Surely We ourselves have revealed the Quran to you, revealing (it) in portions.
    224. Therefore wait patiently for the command of your Lord, and obey not from among them a sinner or an ungrateful one.
    225. And glorify the name of your Lord morning and evening.
    226. And during part of the night adore Him, and give glory to Him (a) long (part of the) night.
    227. Surely these love the transitory and neglect a grievous day before them.
    228. We created them and made firm their make, and when we please we will bring in their place the likes of them by a change.
    229. Surely this is a reminder, so whoever pleases takes to his Lord a way.
    230. And you do not please except that Allah pleas; surely Allah is Knowing, Wise;
    231. He makes whom He pleases to enter into His mercy; and) as for) the unjust, He has prepared for them a painful chastisement.
    232. Praise and Eulogy is for Allah for the blessing and bounties which He has bestowed.
    233. And thanks to HIM upon what He revelated (to His servants)
    234. And Praise is for HIM upon the common boons and blessings which
    235. He bestowed upon His servants without their request
    236. And upon the comprehensive and complete blessings which
    237. He granted to all and sundry and gave it to us, consequetively.
    238. Those graces and favours which are uncountable.
    239. And are irredeemable and uncompensatable due to their plentiful ness of number.
    240. And the imagination of their end is out of the reach of human mind.
    241. He invited the servant to thankfulness for the sake of the consequetive and continuous enhancement of blessings.
    242. And opened the door of eulogy and Praise (of Allah) upon them so that He may make his favors and beneficences great and plentiful for them.
    243. I testify that there is no Deity (Lord) except the sole and matchless Allah.
    244. And the testification of the singleness of Allah is a word that Allah has declared sincerity (as) it's reality, and made the hearts the centre of it's contact and union.
    245. And has made the specifications and research of the oneness of Allah's station obvious and evident in the light of meditation.
    246. The Allah Who can not be seen by the eyes and tongues are unable and baffled to describe His virtues and attributes.
    247. And the intelligence and apprehension of man is helpless and destitude from the imagination of his how ness.
    248. Allah made all the beings without previous matter and sample and shape and pattern.
    249. And made them wear the dress of life by His main and might's and created them according to His Devine will and Intention short of it that
    250. He might have needed their creatlon or have wished any benefit for Himself from their shaping and sketching except this that
    251. He wanted to give a proof of His wisdom and make the people (creations) aware about
    252. His obedience and submission and invited them to his servitude and worship and make
    253. His Invitation grand and ostentatious.
    254. Allah fixed the reward for His obedience and torment for His insubordination and disobedience so that
    255. He may restrain His servants from His wrath and fury and lead them to His paradise.
    256. And I testify that my father Mohammad (SAW) is the apostle and the servant of Allah.
    257. And Allah selected and chose him before appointing him at the post of Prophet hood.
    258. And He named him before choosing and selecting him.
    259. And chose him before envoying and delegating him.
    260. Then all the creations were hidden and covered in the covers of unseen and were hidden amid the screen and curtain of fear and fright and stayed near the last and final border of non entity (nothingness) for Allah was aware of and knew the end of matters and because of His encompassing the incidents of times and ages and His knowledge of the predestinates.
    261. Allah appointed him (as apostle) so that he may complete and finalize
    262. His matter and Implement His order and materialize His decreed and predestinates.
    263. Allah saw nations and groups had various different sects in their religion and scattered and staying on the verge of the fires of differences, busy with the their idol worshipping.
    264. They denied God with all the signs and symbols of HIM.
    265. (IRFAN) So Allah illuminated the darkness's through my father Mohammad (SAW) and removed the darkness's from their hearts, removed (cured) the blindness of the eyes.
    266. My father (Mohammad (SAW) ) stood up with (his) guidance among the people.
    267. And saved them from perversion and aberration, and turned their blindness into enlightenment and guided them towards the firm religion.
    268. And called (invited) them to the straight way.
    269. You the servants of Allah, are the ones to maintain
    270. His injunctions and prohibitions, and the carriers of His religion, and
    271. His relevation, and the trustees of Allah upon your souls, and the propagators of His religion among the other nations.
    272. Oh the servants of Allah! (beware) the real leader from Allah, is present among you and the commitment has previously been made to you and the remaining and left over of the prophet hood has been appointed for your
      guidance.
    273. That is the speaking book of Allah the truthful Quran, and a beaming and gleaming light,
    274. In which all the secrets and facts about the completion of man and his prosperity have been exhibited and illuminated.
    275. It guides from darkness towards light of guidance. It s followers are the subject of envoy of others.
    276. The book of Allah is the guide of it's followers towards the pleasure of Allah.
    277. Listening (carefully) to it leads to the salvation.
    278. The enlightened and conspicuous evidences and proofs of Allah can be obtained through it.
    279. And (also the knowledge) of His interpreted intentions and fear invoking constraining prohibitions.
    280. His sufficing testimonies and conspicuous arguments,
    281. And desired virtues and allowed endowments and gifts and obligatory Devine laws. (can be obtained from it)
    282. Allah made the faith for you as a purity from polytheism (and infidelity).
    283. And (made) service the cause of your getting distant (purification) from pride (egoism).
    284. And rendered alms for the purity of your soul and flourishment and expansion of your sustenance.
    285. And rendered fasting for the maintenance and firmness of your sincerity.
    286. And Allah set Hajj for the consolidation and reinforcement of the religion.
    287. Allah executed and rendered justice for the sake of putting together and harmonization of the hearts.
    288. And (Allah set) the subordination and obedience of us (the household of the Prophet (SAW)) for the security of society's system and our Imamate as a safety from segregation and disunity).
    289. And (Allah made) Jahad (holy war), the honour and glory for Islam and abjectness and humbleness for the infidels and the hypocrites.
    290. And (Allah rendered) patience as a help for getting reward.
    291. And (Allah caused) commanding goodness and forbiding to do evil for the amendment and correction of society and the common folks (public).
    292. And (Allah made) the kindness to parents as a protectional (shield) to His wrath and displeasure.
    293. And Allah made joining and connecting with the kinship and cognation, the cause of lengthening of life.
    294. And Allah made law of retaliation (revenge for homicide) as the security of blood (from being shed).
    295. And Allah executed the vow performing as a medium for forgiveness.
    296. And (Allah rendered) the correct use of weights measure (units) a medium for stopping from selling less (than actual).
    297. And (Allah rendered) prohibition from drinking wine the cause of taking distance from contaminations (evils).
    298. And Allah made the prohibition to accuse someone of adultery a protection (shield) for avoiding (His) curse.
    299. And (Allah made) refraining from theft for the sake of positiveness and affirmation for modesty.
    300. And Allah prohibited polytheism for the sake of (bringing about) sincerety in (His) adoration and worship.
    301. Certainly, an apostle has come to you from among yourselves; grievous to him is your falling into distress, excessively solicitous respecting you; to the believers (he is) compassionate, merciful.
    302. So if you assay and recognize him you will find he is my father not the father of your women and the brother of my cousin, (Ali a.s) not that of your men.
    303. And how nice a relation I have to him. So he propagated his prophetic (mission).
    304. He always used to turn his face from the polytheists.
    305. And fought against them till he beat them up.
    306. He would invite people towards Allah by wisdom, and beautiful admonition.
    307. He broke the idols and scattered the aggregation of polytheists in a way that they ran away (from the battle
      fields),
    308. So that finally the hidden secret of oneness of Allah became manifested by him.
    309. And he made the logic of religion reach the ears ((of the people) and settled down the foam of the camels of Satan and turned the slogan yelling of those devils silent.
    310. And downed the agents of hypocrisy and mutual commitments of the infidels got dissolved till such time that,
    311. You (people) spoke to a group of enlightened and modest men with the words of oneness of Allah and sincerity.
    312. You were on the edge of a fire ditch,
    313. And were a cup of drink and the morsel of a greedy one and a firebrand of every hasty one and were being trampled on (by other nations) and drank from the contaminated waters gathered over in ditches and your energy (food) was (secured by) the leaves of trees and desert grass.
    314. And for your abjectness and abasement you were always afraid that those around you might abduct you in the winking of an eye.
    315. So, Allah liberated you (of these misfortunes) through my father Mohammed (SAW).
    316. Inspite of it that he (SAW) was involved and at war against the intrepid and the hungry wolves of Arab and the stubborns refractories of the people of the books (Jews and Christians).
    317. Whenever his opponents would lit the fire of war, Allah extinguished it to your benefit.
    318. Moslems narrate: ((One day cAa’eshah went to Fatima's home while she was cooking a kind of pap for Hasan and Hussein, with flour, milk and fat in a pot. However, while the pot was boiling on the fire, Fatima was stirring its contents with her finger. So cAa’eshah left horrified and went to her father and told him: O Father! Indeed, I have seen of Fatima Zahra’ a very surprising act. I saw her cooking and stirring the contents of a pot that was boiling on the fire with her hand. So he told her: O Daughter! Keep this a secret, as this is very significant. Later, Rasoolollaah ascended the menbar[5], praised Allah and extolled Him, then he said: The people hold as significant, and regard as too much, what they have seen of the pot and the fire. By Him Who sent me with the Mission, and selected me for the Prophet hood! Verily, Allaah, the Most High, has prohibited the fire from burning Fatima's meat, and blood, and hair, and nerve, and bone, and has kept away her descendants and followers from Hell. Verily, of the descendants of Faatimah is whom the fire, and the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the mountains obey; and the Jinn fight for; and the prophets called their peoples to believe in him; and the earth shall surrender to him its treasures; and the sky shall bring down on him its blessings. Woe unto him who doubts the superiority of Fatima. May Allah keep away from His Blessing he who hates her. May Allaah keep away from His Blessing he who hates her husband, and does not accept the imaamah[6] of her children. Indeed, Fatima will be asked [on the Day of Judgment by sinners to intervene], and she will accept, and she will intervene, and her intervention will be accepted by Allaah, despite those who do not like it[7].)).

    319. ((One day cAli asked a Jew to loan him some barely, and the Jew demanded to hold something as security. So he gave him Faatimah’s wrapper, which was made of wool, and the Jew took it to his house and put it in a room. At night, when his wife entered that room, she saw a dazzling light illuminating the room; she went to her husband and told him what she had seen. The Jew was surprised. He quickly jumped up and went to the room, and saw the light emitting rays as if it were coming from a shining full moon glowing at a close distance, so he was greatly amazed. When he looked closely at the source of the light, he saw it coming from Fatima's wrapper. Thus he ran to his relatives, and his wife ran to her relatives; and before long more than eighty Jews had gathered, and after seeing the light of Fatima's wrapper they all converted to Islam[8].)).

    320. It has been narrated from Feddah who said:  ((Ameer al-Mo’meneen performed his noon salaat [in the mosque] and was about to return home, when some women came to him crying. So he asked them: What has happened?! Why do I see you with such changed faces?! They said: O Ameer al-Mo’meneen! catch up with your cousin Zahraa’ (Faatimah), and we do not think that you will reach her in time! Ameer al-Mo’meneen hurried home, and saw her lying, in great agony. He threw down his robe from his shoulders, and his turban from his head, and took her head and put it in his lap, calling her: O Zahra’! But she did not speak. He called her again: O daughter of him who carried the Zakaat in his robe and gave it to the poor! But she did not speak. He called her again: O daughter of him who led the angels in salaat in the sky! But she did speak. He called her again: O Fatima! Speak to me, for surely it is I your cousin cAli ibn Abi Taalib. So she opened her eyes to his face, looked at him and cried; and he also cried. He asked her: What are you feeling? It is I your cousin cAli ibn Abi Taalib.
    321. Faatimah: O cousin! I feel the death that is unavoidable…O cousin! If you marry after me, allow a day and night for your wife, and allow a day and night for my two sons. O Abaa al-Hasan! they will shortly become two broken orphans. Yesterday they lost their grandfather, and today they will lose their mother; so woe unto the nation that kills them and hates them. She then composed a poem:
    322. “Cry for me O Best Guide! and shed tears, for surely this is the day of separation.
    323. O husband of Batool! (Faatimah) I entrust you with the sons, for surely they have became allies of yearning.
    324. Cry for me, and cry for the orphans; and do not forget the slain of the enemies in the Taff (Karbala) of Iraq.”
    325. I saw my beloved Rasoolollaah in a dream, and he said: Come to me O daughter! for surely I yearn for you.
    326. And I said to him: By Allah, indeed I yearn to meet you even more.
    327. So he said: You are with me tonight. And he is truthful in what he promises.
    328. By the time you recite the Yaaseen (the 36th soorah), I will have died. So wash me without uncovering my body; and perform the Deceased Prayer on me along with the closest family members, secretly not openly; and hide my grave; and do not allow those who did me injustice attend my funeral[14].)). [14] Behaar al-Anwaar / al-Majlesi = vol. 43, page 178.
    329. ((Before her death, Fatima cried. So Ameer al-Mo’meneen asked her: O my Lady! What makes you cry? Fatima: I cry for what you will encounter after my death. Ali: Do not cry; by Allah, that is so small to me in Allah's cause[15].)).  [15] Behaar al-Anwaar / al-Majlesi = vol. 43, page 218.
    330. Asmaa’ bint cOmays talks about the last minutes of Fatima just before her death, she narrates: ((Then she (Fatima) told me: …Leave [the room] and wait [outside] for a while, because I want to talk to my Lord, the Great, the Almighty. So I left and heard her talking to her Lord, so I entered the room [quietly] without her knowing, and saw her with her hands raised to the sky, saying: O Allah! I ask You in Mohammad the Mostafa’s name, and his yearning for me; and in my husband cAli the Mortadaa’s name, and his grief for me; and in Hasan the Mojtaba’s name, and his crying for me; and in Hussein the Martyr’s name, and his sorrow for me; and in my daughters’ names, and their heartbreak for me; that You have Mercy upon the sinners of the followers of Mohammad, and take them to Heaven. You are indeed the Most Noble, and the Most Merciful[16].)). [16] Bahjat Qalb al-Mostafa / al-Rahmaani = page 576.
    331. Asmaa’ bint cOmays narrates:  ((Faatimah told me: Wait for a while and then call me. If I answer you so be it, and if not, then it means that I have joined my father. So Asmaa’ waited for a while, and she called her, but Faatimah did not respond. Then Asmaa’ said: O daughter of Mohammad the Mostafa! O daughter of the best person ever born! O daughter of the best person ever to walk the earth! O daughter of him who “was at a distance of two bows’ length or (even) closer[17]. But she did not respond to her calls. So Asmaa’ removed the cloth from Faatimah’s face to find that she had left this world. So she fell on her kissing her, saying: O Faatimah! when you see your father Rasoolollaah convey to him my greetings… As she left the room, Hasan and Hosayn entered the house and asked her: Where is our mother? She remained silent; so they entered that room and saw her lying. Hosayn moved her and found her dead. So he said: O brother! May Allaah reward you for [losing] the mother. Then Hasan fell on her kissing her, saying: O mother! Talk to me before my soul leaves my body. And Hosayn fell on her feat kissing them, saying: O mother! I am your son Hosayn; talk to me before my heart stops and I die. Asmaa’ then told them: Go to your father cAli and inform him of your mother’s death. Thus they left their home, screaming: O Mohammad! O Ahmad! Today we relive your death, as our mother has died. Then they gave cAli the news in the mosque, and he lost consciousness and fell on his face. Water was poured on him until he regained consciousness; then he repeated over and over: Who is the consolation after you O daughter of Mohammad?! You used to be my consolation, so who shall be the consolation after you?![18])). [17] Holy Qor’aan = soorah 53, aayah 9.[18] Bahjat Qalb al-Mostafa / al-Rahmaani = page 576.
    332. Imam Hassan (AS) said, 'on the Friday night I saw my mother (Fatima (as)) standing in her arch of prayer.
    333. She was continuously kneeling and performing prostration till the dawn broke.
    334. I would hear her pray for the faithful men and women, but she did not at all pray for herself.
    335. I said, 'Oh mother why did you not pray for yourself like you prayed for others?'
    336. So she replied, 'Oh my son, first thy neighbor and there after your own house.'
    337. The Prophet (SAW) said to Fatima (AS) what is the thing which is a blessing for woman?' She said that, 'she must not see a man (stranger and not intimate) and a man must not see her.'
    338. One day a lady came to Fatima (AS) said 'I have a weak old mother who does not know a few problems about her service (prayers). She has sent me towards you to question you (about them).
    339. Thus Fatima answered her (questions). And the number of her queries reached to ten and Fatima (AS) replied to all her questions. Then she (the woman got a shamed because of the high number of her questions. And said, 'Oh daughter of the Prophet (SAW), 'I do not put you to more inconvenience than this.'
    340. Fatima (AS) said, 'Ask me what you do not know.
    341. Have you ever seen a person who is one day hired to carry a heavy thing to the roof top from ground for an amount (equal to) a thousand dinnars (nearly a hundred thousand miskal (unit of weight) of gold) and he may feel himself tired.' She said 'No'. Fatima (AS) said, 'I have been hired by Allah to get a wages which if the space between the earth and sky is filled up with pearls still (That wages) would he more than it for each of the questions I may answer
      you. Therefore, I deserve it that I must not feel tired exhausted.'
    342. Oh Allah! belittle me in my eyes and glorify and magnify Your station to me.
    343. And inspire me (about) Your obedience and the practice which may cause
    344. Your pleasure and the shunning and evading from things (matters) which are the cause of Your wrath, oh the most merciful of all!
    345. Oh Allah! content me with the sustenance you have granted me.
    346. And till such time that you keep me alive, hide me and make me sound and prosperous.
    347. And forgive me and take pity upon me when I die.
    348. (During death process). Oh Allah! do not help me in something that you have not predestined for me.
    349. And facilitate the achievement of that thing which you have predestined for me.
    350. Oh Allah! bestow upon my parents and all those persons who have rights of their blessings and beneficences upon me, the best of Your rewards.
    351. Oh my Allah, spare me the leisure and respite for the object for which You have created me.
    352. And do not let me be busy and involved (absolutely) in my commitments.
    353. And do not torment me when I ask forgiveness.
    354. And do not deprive me of what I yearn and question you for.
    355. Underlying are the rhymes which Hazrat Zahra (AS) recited upon the mourning of Prophet's (SAW) demise.
    356. The person who smells the sweet fragrance of the grave of the Prophet (SAW) so what if he does not smell any other fragrance for long times to come?
    357. Agonies and anguishes and grief's poured upon me in such a way that had they poured upon days those would have turned into nights. (bleak, dark and bewildering).
    358. The dust of sorrow covered the space of sky and the sun has faded and the bright day turned bleak.
    359. The earth has become dark and gooomy after the death of the Prophet (SAW)
    360. Woe! Alas! what the earth will have much of Jolting upon being separated and parted from him (SAW).
    361. It is meritorious and befitting that the east and west of the world may weep upon the parting of Prophet (SAW) and the persons of Muzzir tribe and all of they rest of the Yemen tribes shed tears.
    362. And the great magnificent mountain of the existence and the hidden and covered Kabaah (House of ALLAH) and its pillars should shed tears.
    363. Oh the terminator and finaliser of the (series of) prophets!
    364. The light of whome is the source of blessing for the worlds inhabitants,
    365. Be the salutation and blessings of Allah the desender of Holy Quran upon you.
    366. Following you (Prophet (SAW)) inequities (intrigues and revolts) took shape and variant voices were raised so that if you were present and supervising (things) all these differences and deviations would not have taken place.
    367. You set off (on the journey of eternity) from among us and now our condition is like the earth which becomes devoid of the beneficial rains.
    368. And your nation upset the order and discipline of matters.
    369. So be a witness and do not let their matter get out of your sight.
    370. Fatima (A.S.) felt grieved by Abu Bakr's actions, and was so displeased with him that when she knew of his attempt to seize Fadak, she accompanied a group of women to the mosque. There she sat down and delivered the following speech: 'Praise be to Allah for that which He bestowed (upon us);
    371. And thanks be to Him for all that which He inspired;
    372. And commended in His Name for that which He Provided:
    373. Form prevalent favors which He created,
    374. And abundant benefactions which He offered and perfect grants which
    375. He presented; (such benefactions) that their number is much too plentiful to compute;
    376. Bounties too vast to measure;
    377. Their limit was too distant to realize;
    378. He recommended to them (His creatures) to gain more (of His benefaction) by being grateful for their continuity;
    379. He ordained Himself praiseworthy by giving generously to His creatures;
    380. I bear witness that there is no God but Allah Who is One without partner,
    381. a statement which sincere devotion is made to be its interpretation;
    382. hearts guarantee its con­tinuation, and illuminated in the minds is its sensibility.
    383. He Who can not be perceived with vision;
    384. neither be described with tongues;
    385. nor can imagination surround His state.
    386. He originated things but not from anything that existed be­fore them,
    387. and created them with­out examples to follow.
    388. Rather, He created them with His might and dispersed them according to His will;
    389. not for a need did He create them; nor for a benefit (for Him) did He shape them,
    390. But to establish His wisdom, Bring attention to His obedi­ence, manifest His might, lead His creatures to humbly vene­rate Him, and to exalt His decrees.
    391. He then made the reward for His obedience, and punishment for his dis­obedience,
    392. so as to protect His creatures from His Wrath and amass them into His Paradise.
    393. I too bear witness that my Father, Muhammad, is His Slave and Messenger,
    394. Whom He chose prior to sending him, named him before sending him;
    395. when creatures were still concealed in that which was transcendental, guarded from that which was appalling, and associated with the termination and nonexistence.
    396. For Allah the Exalted knew that which was to follow, comprehended that which will come to pass,
    397. And realized the place of every event. Allah has sent him (Muhammad) as perfection for His commands, a resolution to accomplish His rule, and an implementation of the decrees of His Mercy.
    398. So he found the nations to vary in their faiths;
    399. Obsessed by their fires,
    400. Worshipping their idols,
    401. And denying Allah despite their knowledge of Him.
    402. Therefore, Allah illuminated their darkness with my Father,
    403. Muhammad, uncovered obscurity from their hearts, and cleared the clouds from their insights.
    404. He revealed guidance among the people;
    405. So he delivered them from being led astray,
    406. led them away from misguidance,
    407. guided them to the proper religion, and called them to the straight path.
    408. Allah then chose to recall him back in mercy, love and pre­ference.
    409. So, Muhammad is in comfort from the burden of this world,
    410. He is surrounded with devoted angels,
    411. the satisfaction of the Merciful Lord,
    412. and the nearness of the powerful King.
    413. So may the praise of Allah be upon my Father, His Prophet, Trusted one, the chosen one
    414. from among His creatures, and His sincere friend, and may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.'
    415. Fatima (A.S.) then turned to the crowd and said: 'Surely you are Allah's slaves at His command Prohibition;
    416. You are the bearers of His religion and revelation;
    417. You are Allah's trusted ones with yourselves;
    418. and His messengers to the nations. Amongst you does He have righteous authority;
    419. A covenant He brought unto you, and an heir He left to guard you;
    420. That is The eloquent book of Allah;
    421. The truthful Quran; The brilliant light;
    422. The shining beam; Its insights are indisputable;
    423. Its secrets are revealed; Its indications are manifest; and its followers are blessed by it.
    424. (The Quran) leads its adherents to goodwill;
    425. and Hearing it leads to salvation;
    426. with it are the bright divine authorities achieved,
    427. His manifest determination acquired,
    428. His prohibited decrees avoided;
    429. His manifest evidence recognized;
    430. His satisfying proofs made apparent,
    431. His permissions granted, and His laws written.
    432. So Allah made belief to be purification for you from poly­theism.
    433. He made Prayer, An exaltation for you from conceit.
    434. Alms -A purification for the soul and a (cause of) growth in subsistence.
    435. Fasting an implantation of devotion.
    436. Pilgrimage -A construction of religion.
    437. Justice -A harmony of the hearts;
    438. obeying us (Ahlul-Bayt)­ Management of the nation.
    439. Our leadership (Ahlul-Bayt), Safeguard from disunity.
    440. Jihad (struggle)­ a strengthening of Islam.
    441. Patience -A helping course for deserving (divine) reward.
    442. Ordering goodness (Amr Bil Maruf)­ Public welfare.
    443. Kindness to the parents­ A safeguard from wrath.
    444. Maintaining close relations with one's kin -A cause for a longer life and multiplying the number of descend­ants.
    445. Retaliation (Qesas)-For sparing blood (souls).
    446. Fulfillment of vows-subjecting oneself to mercy.
    447. Completion of weights and measures -A cause for preventing the neglect of others' rights.
    448. Forbiddance of drinking wines an exaltation from atrocity.
    449. Avoiding slander -A veil from curse.
    450. Abandoning theft-a reason for deserving chastity.
    451. Allah has also prohibited polytheism so that one can devote himself to His Lordship.
    452. Therefore; Fear Allah as He should be feared, and die not except in a state of Islam;
    453. Obey Allah in that which He has commanded you to do and that which He has forbidden, for surely those truly fear among His servants, who have knowledge.'
    454. Lady Fatima Zahra (A.S.) then added: 'O People! Be informed that I am Fatima, and my father is Muhammad
    455. I say that repeatedly and initiate it continually;
    456. I say not what I say mistakenly, nor do I do what I do aimlessly.
    457. Now hath come unto you an Apostle from amongst yourselves;
    458. It grieves him that you should perish; Ardently anxious is he over you;
    459. To the believers he is most kind and merciful.
    460. Thus, if you identify and recog­nize him, you shall realize that he is my father and not the father of any of your women; the brother of my cousin (Ali (A.S.)) rather than any of your men.
    461. What an excellent identity he was, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him and his descendants
    462. Thus, he propagated the Message, by coming out openly with the warning, and while inclined away from the path of the polytheists,
    463. (whom he) struck their strength and seized their throats,
    464. while he invited (all) to the way of his Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching
    465. He destroyed idols, and defeated heroes, until their group fled and turned their backs.
    466. So night revealed its dawn; righteousness uncovered its genuineness;
    467. the voice of the religious authority spoke out loud;
    468. the evil discords were silenced;
    469. The crown of hypocrisy was diminished; the tightening of infidelity and desertion were untied,
    470. So you spoke the statement of devotion amongst a band of starved ones;
    471. and you were on the edge of a hole of fire; (you were) the drink of the thirsty one;
    472. the opportunity of the desiring one;
    473. the fire brand of him who passes in haste;
    474. the step for feet; you used to drink from the water gathered on roads; eat jerked meat.
    475. (Lady Fatima (A.S.) was stating their lowly situation before Islam)
    476. You were despised outcasts always in fear of abduction from those around you.
    477. Yet, Allah rescued you through my father, Muhammad after much ado,
    478. and after he was confronted by mighty men, the Arab beasts, and the demons of the people of the Book
    479. Who, whenever they ignited the fire of war, Allah extinguished it;
    480. and whenever the thorn of the devil appeared,
    481. or a mouth of the polytheists opened wide in defiance,
    482. he would strike its discords with his brother (Ali, (A.S.),
    483. who comes not back until he treads its wing with the sole of his feet,
    484. and extinguishes its flames with his sword. (Ali is) diligent in Allah's affair, near to the Messenger of Allah,
    485. A master among Allah's worshippers, setting to work briskly, sincere in his advice, earnest and exerting himself (in service to Islam);
    486. While you were calm, gay, and feeling safe in your comfort­able lives, waiting for us to meet disasters, awaiting the spread of news, you fell back during every battle, and took to your heels at times of fighting.
    487. Yet, When Allah chose His Prophet from the dwell of His prophets, and the abode of His sincere (servants);
    488. The thorns of hypocrisy appeared on you, the garment of faith became worn out,
    489. The misguided ignorant (P.B.U.H.) spoke out, the sluggish ignorant came to the front and brayed.
    490. The he camel of the vain wiggled his tail in your courtyards and the your courtyards and the Devil stuck his head from its place of hiding and called upon you, he found you respon­sive to his invitation, and observing his deceits.
    491. He then aroused you and found you quick (to answer him), and invited you to wrath,
    492. therefore; you branded other than your camels and proceeded to other than your drinking places.
    493. Then while the era of the Prophet was still near, the gash was still wide, the scar had not yet healed, and the Messenger was not yet buried.
    494. A (quick) undertaking as you claimed, aimed at preventing discord (trial),
    495. Surely, they have fallen into trial already!
    496. And indeed Hell surrounds the unbelievers.
    497. How preposterous! What an idea!
    498. What a falsehood! For Allah's Book is still amongst you, its affairs are apparent; its rules are manifest; its signs are dazzling; its restrictions are visible, and its commands are evident.
    499. Yet, indeed you have casted it behind your backs!
    500. What! Do you detest it?
    501. Or according to something else you wish to rule?
    502. Evil would be the exchange for the wrongdoers!
    503. And if anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah), it never will it be accepted from him;
    504. And in the hereafter, he will be in the ranks of those who have lost.
    505. Surely you have not waited until its stampede seized, and it became obedient.
    506. You then started arousing its flames, instigating its coal, complying with the call of the misled devil, quenching the light of the manifest reli­gion, and extinguished the light of the sincere Prophet.
    507. You concealed sips on froth and proceeded towards his (the Prophet) kin and children in swamps and forests (meaning you plot against them in deceitful ways),
    508. but we are patient with you as if we are being notched with knives and stung by spearheads in our abdomens,
    509. Yet-now you claim that there is not inheritance for us! What!
    510. "Do they then seek after a judgment of (the Days of) ignorance?
    511. But How, for a people whose faith is assured, can give better judgment than Allah?
    512. Don't you know? Yes, indeed it is obvious to you that I am his daughter.
    513. O Muslims! Will my inheritance be usurped? O son of Abu Quhafa! Where is it in the Book of Allah that you inherit your father and I do not inherit mine?
    514. Surely you have come up with an unprecedented thing.
    515. Do you intentionally abandon the Book of Allah and cast it behind your back?
    516. Do you not read where it says: And Suleiman inherited Dawood'?
    517. And when it narrates the story of Zakariya and says: `So give me an heir as from thyself (One that) will inherit me, and inherit the posterity of Yaqoob' And: `But kindred by hood have prior rights against each other in the Book of Allah'
    518. And: Allah (thus) directs you as regards your children's (inheritance) to the male, a portion equal to that of two females'
    519. And, If he leaves any goods, that he make a bequest to parents and next of kin, according to reasonable usage; this is due from the pious ones.
    520. ' You claim that I have no share! And that I do not inherit my father!
    521. What! Did Allah reveal a (Quranic) verse regarding you, from which He excluded my father?
    522. Or do you say: `These (Fatima and her father) are the people of two faiths, they do not inherit each other?!'
    523. Are we not, me and my father, a people adhering to one faith?
    524. Or is it that you have more knowledge about the specifi­cations and generalizations of the Quran than my father and my cousin (Imam Ali)?
    525. So, here you are! Take it! (Ready with) its nose rope and saddled!
    526. But if shall encounter you on the Day of Gathering; (thus) what a wonder­ful judge is Allah, a claimant is Muhammad, and a day is the Day of Rising.
    527. At the time of the Hour shall the wrongdoers lose; and it shall not benefit you to regret (your actions) then!
    528. For every Message, there is a time limit; and soon shall ye know who will be inflicted with torture that will humiliate him, and who will be confronted by an everlasting punishment.
    529. (Fatima then turned towards the Ansars and said:) O you people of intellect! The strong supporters of the nation! And those who embraced Islam;
    530. What is this short-coming in defending my right?
    531. And what is this slumber (while you see) injustice (being done toward me)?
    532. Did not the Messenger of Allah, my father, used to say: A man is upheld (remembered) by his children'?
    533. O how quick have you violated (his orders)?!
    534. How soon have you plotted against us?
    535. But you still are capable (of helping me in) my attempt, and powerful (to help me) in that which I request and (in) my pursuit (of it).
    536. Or do you say: "Muhammad has perished;"
    537. Surely this is a great calamity; Its damage is excessive its injury is great, Its wound (is much too deep) to heal.
    538. The Earth became darkened with his departure;
    539. the stars eclipsed for his calamity; hopes were seized;
    540. mountains submitted; sanctity was violated, and holiness was encroached upon after his death.
    541. Therefore, this, by Allah, is the great affliction, and the grand calamity; there is not an affliction-which is the like of it; nor will there be a sudden misfortune (as surprising as this).
    542. The Book of Allah-excellent in praising him-announced in the courtyards (of your houses) in the place where you spend your evenings and mornings;
    543. A call, A cry, A recitation, and (verses) in order.
    544. It had previously came upon His (Allah's) Prophets and Messengers; (for it is) A decree final, and a pre­destination fulfilled:
    545. "Muhammad is not but an Apostle: Many were the apostles that passed away before him.
    546. If he died or was slain, will ye then turn back on your heels?
    547. If any did turn back on his heels, not the least harm will he do to Allah;
    548. but Allah (on the other hand) will swiftly reward those who (serve Him) with gratitude.
    549. " O you people of reflection; will I be usurped the inheritance of my father while you hear and see me?!
    550. (And while) You are sitting and gathered around me?
    551. You hear my call, and are included in the (news of the) affair? (But)
    552. You are numerous and well equipped!
    553. (You have) the means and the power, and the weapons and the shields.
    554. Yet, the call reaches you but you do not answer; the cry comes to you but you do not come to help?
    555. (This) While you are characterized by struggle, known for goodness and welfare,
    556. the selected group (which was chosen), and the best ones chosen by the Messenger for us, Ahlul-Bayt.
    557. You fought the Arabs, bore with pain and exhaustion, struggled against the nations, and resisted their heroes.
    558. We were still, so were you in ordering you, and you in obeying us.
    559. So that Islam became triumphant, the accomplishment of the days came near, the fort of polytheism was subjected,
    560. the outburst of was subjected, the outburst of infidelity calmed down,
    561. and the system of religion was well-ordered.
    562. Thus, (why have you) become con­fused after clearness?
    563. Conceal matters after announcing them?
    564. Turned on your heels after daring?
    565. Associated (others with Allah) after believing?
    566. Will you not fight people who violated their oaths?
    567. Plotted to expel the Apostle and became aggressive by being the first (to assault) you? Do ye fear them?
    568. Nay, it is Allah Whom ye should more justly fear, if you believe!
    569. Nevertheless, I see that you are inclined to easy living; dismissed he who is more worthy of guardianship
    570. (Ali (A.S.)); You secluded yourselves with meekness and dismissed that which you accepted.
    571. Yet, if you show ingratitude, ye and all on earth together, yet,
    572. Allah free of all wants, worthy of all praise.
    573. Surely I have said all that I have said with full knowledge that you intent to forsake me,
    574. and knowing the betrayal that your hearts sensed.
    575. But it is the state of soul, the effusion of fury,
    576. the dissemination of (what is) the chest and the presentation of the proof.
    577. Hence, Here it is! Bag it (leadership and) put it on the back of an ill she­ camel, which has a thin hump with everlasting grace,
    578. marked with the wrath of Allah, and the blame of ever (which leads to) the Fire of (the wrath of Allah kindled (to a blaze),
    579. that which doth mount (right) to the hearts;
    580. For, Allah witnesses what you do, and soon will the unjust assailants know what vicissitudes their affairs will take!
    581. And I am the daughter of a Warner (the Prophet) to you against a severe punishment.
    582. So, act and so will we, and wait, and we shall wait.'
    583. (The end of Lady Fatima's speech.) It appears from recorded historical events, that Lady Fatima (A.S.) was successful at the beginning in persuading Abu Bakr to hand back Fadak to her; listen to part of a speech he (according to some historians) delivered after hearing Fatima's speech. He said:
    584. "O daughter of the Messenger of Allah... Surely the Prophet is your father, not anyone else's, the brother of your husband, not any other man's; he surely preferred him over all his friends and (Ali) supported him in every important matter, no one loves you save the lucky and no one hates you save the wretched. You are the blessed progeny of Allah's Messenger, the chosen ones, our guides to goodness our path to Paradise, and you-the best of women-and the daughter of the best of prophets, truthful is your sayings, excelling in reason. You shall not be driven back from your right...But I surely heard your father saying: `We the, group of prophets do not inherit, nor are we inherited Yet, this is my situation and property, it is yours (if you wish); it shall not be concealed from you, nor will it be stored away from you. You are the Mistress of your father's nation, and the blessed tree of your descendants. Your property shall not be usurped against your will nor can your name be defamed. Your judgment shall be executed in all that which I possess. This, do you think that I violate your father's (will)?"
    585. Fatima then refuted Abu Bakr's claim that the Prophet had stated that prophets cannot be inherited, and said:
    586. "Glory be to Allah!! Surely Allah's Messenger did not abandon Allah's Book nor did he violate
    587. His commands. Rather, he followed its decrees and adhered to its chapters.
    588. So do you unite with treachery justifying your acts with fabrications?
    589. Indeed this-after his departure-is similar to the disasters which were plotted against him during his lifetime.
    590. But behold! This is Allah's Book, a just judge and a decisive speaker, saying: `One that will (truly) inherit Me, and inherit the posterity of Yaqub,' (19:6) and 'And Sulaiman inherited Dawood.' (27: 16)
    591. Thus, He (Glory be to Him) made clear that which He made share of all heirs, decreed from the amounts of inheritance, allowed for males and females, and eradicated all doubts and ambiguities (pertaining to this issue which existed with the) bygones.
    592. Nay! But your minds have made up a tale (that may pass) with you, but (for me) patience is most fitting against that which ye assert; it is Allah (alone) whose help can be sought."
    593. It is apparent that Abu Bakr chanced the mode with which he addressed Lady Fatima (A.S.) after delivering her speech. Listen to his following speech; which is his reply to Fatima's just reported speech.
      Abu Bakr said: "Surely Allah and His Apostle are truthful, and so has his (the Prophet's) daughter told the truth. Surely you are the source of wisdom, the element of faith, and the sole authority. May Allah not refute your righteous argument, nor invalidate your decisive speech. But these are the Muslims between us-who have entrusted me with leadership, and it was according to their satisfaction that 1 received what 1 have. I am not being arrogant, autocratic, or selfish, and they are my witnesses."
    594. Upon hearing Abu Bakr speak of the people's support for him, Lady Fatima Zahra (A.S.) turned towards them and said:
    595. "O people, who rush towards uttering falsehood and are indifferent to disgraceful and losing actions!
    596. Do you not earnestly seek to reflect upon the Quran,
    597. or are your hearts isolated with locks?
    598. But on your hearts is the stain of the evil, which you committed;
    599. it has seized your hearing and your sight,
    600. evil is that which you justified cursed is that which you reckoned,
    601. and wicked is what you have taken for an exchange!
    602. You shall, by Allah, find bearing it (to be a great) burden, and its consequence disastrous.
    603. (That is) on the day when the cover is removed and appears to you what is behind it of wrath.
    604. When you will be confronted by Allah with that which you could never have expected,
    605. there will perish, there and then, those who stood on falsehoods." (the end).
    606. It has been reported in Bihar that Imam Ali (A) said:
      "Once, the Messenger of Allah came to us while Fatima was sitting near the pot and I was cleaning some lentils; when the Prophet saw us he said:
      'Abu Al-Hassan!'
      I said: 'At your service! O Messenger of Allah!'
      He then said: `Listen to me, for I say not save that which is the word of Lord: There is not a man who helps his wife in her housework, save that with very hair on his body a whole year of worship-during which he fasted the days and kept up the nights in prayer is counted for him....'
      Although Fatima's dowry was modest, because of the Messenger's wish to set an example for the Muslims and for other implicit reasons, Fatima Zahra (A) did not ignore her greatness and exalted identity to obtain a fantastic gift for her wedding. Fatima's drive for excellence and perfection motivated her to ask for the right of intercedence-if Allah willed-for the sinners among the Muslims.
    607. Although parts of Abu Bakr's speeches cannot be verified with authentic evidence, and despite the fact that we have already mentioned part of the actual speech, which Abu Bakr delivered after Lady Fatima's arguments, it appears certain that Abu Bakr was finally persuaded to submit Fadak to her. Nevertheless, when Fatima was leaving Abu Bakr's house, Umar suddenly appeared and exclaimed: "What is it that you hold in your hand?" Abu Bakr replied: 'A decree I have written for Fatima in which I assigned Fadak and her father's inheritance to her." Umar then said: "With what will you spend on the Muslims if the Arabs decide to fight you?!" Umar then seized the decree and tore it up!!!
    608. Bakri and Moslem scholars narrate from Salmaan, who said: ((When Ameer al-Mo’meneen was forcefully extracted from his home[9], Faatimah came out until she reached the grave [of Rasoolollaah], and said: Release my cousin. By Him Who sent Mohammad with the Truth! If you do not release him, I will let loose my hair, and I will put Rasoolollaah’s shirt on my head, and I will cry to Allaah; for surely Saalih’s she-camel[10] is not more precious to Allaah than me, and its young is not more precious to Allaah than my two sons[11].[Salmaan says:] I was close to her and, by Allaah! I suddenly saw the foundations of the mosque’s walls come out from their places, so high that a man could pass from underneath them. So I went to her and said: O my Mistress! O my Lady! Allaah the Blessed, and the Most High, sent your father as a mercy [to the people], so do not bring them wrath. Thus she returned, and the walls returned to their places and a lot of dust raised and went into our nostrils[12].)). [9] To be taken to the mosque and be forced into pledging his allegiance to the Usurper of the Khelaafah, Aboo Bakr.[10] Allaah sent a very gigantic she-camel for Prophet Saalih’s people as a sign. However they killed it, and Allaah brought upon them a great calamity that destroyed them. The Holy Qor’aan refers to the Thamood, Saalih’s people, and their actions in a number of aayaat, and mentions the she-camel in the following places: soorah 7, aayah 73; soorah 11, aayah 64; soorah 17, aayah 59; soorah 26, aayah 155; soorah 91, aayah 13.[11] al-Ekhtesaas / al-Mofeed = page 185. al-Kaafi / al-Kolayni = vol. 8, page 238.

Tafseer / al-cAyyaashi = vol. 2, page 66. al-Waafi / al-fayd = vol. 2, page 187.[12] cAwaalim al-cOloom / al-Bahraani = vol. 11, page 231.

Naasikh al-Tawaareekh = vol. 2, page 356.
    609. ((When she was kept away from her rights, she took the jamb of Rasoolollaah’s room, and said: Saalih’s she-camel is not dearer to Allaah than me. Then she pulled up the side of her veil to the sky and was about to pray, suddenly, the walls of the mosque raised from the ground, and calamity became imminent. So Ameer al-Mo’meneen came and took her arm, and said: O Remainder of the Prophethood, and the Sun of the Messengerhood, and the Source of the cEsmah and Wisdom! Your father was a mercy for the people of the world, so do not be a wrath over them. I swear to you by the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful. Thus she returned[13].)).[13] Mostadrakaat cAwaalim al-cOloom / al-Abtahi = vol. 11, page 232.
