Fatima(S.A.) The Radiant

Imam Hasan Askari(A.S.) reported that his father quoted Jabir Ibn Abdullah as saying : ‘ The Messenger of Allah, Peace be Upon him and his cleansed progeny, 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(S.A.), the mistress of your women descendants. ‘

REFERENCE : Lisan Al Mizan Volume 3 page 346

Ibn Abbas said : ‘ Aisha entered the house while the Messenger of Allah(S.A.W.) was kissing Fatima(S.A.), so she said: ‘ Do you love her, O Messenger of Allah(S.T.)? ‘

He replied : ‘Indeed, by Allah(S.T.) if you knew the extent of my love for her, your love would increase for her. When I was in the forth heaven … that I found these dates softer than butter, more pleasant than musk and sweeter than honey. So when I descended to earth, I came unto Khadija(S.A.) and she bore Fatima(S.A.). Thus Fatima(S.A.) is a human houri, whenever I long for paradise I smell her.

 

Hazrat Fatima Zahra’s(s.a.) other names:

Az-Zahra: She was named by Allah(swt), as Az-Zahra because her Holy Light used to shine among those brighter in all The Heavens.

Batool: Because of her absolute Purity attained from Paradise from The Heavens. And also because, The Lady Fatima Al-Zahra(S.T.), not like all the other women in the world, she had been blessed of not having the monthly menstrual period. This purity of hers was created by Allah The Almighty with the Purity of the Heavenly food and water her Holy Father had received, when he was alone on the mountain top indulging himself in prayer in the worship of God, for forty days and nights.

Siddiqah: The Honest, The Righteous

Al-Mubarakah: The Blessed One.

Al-Tahirah: The Virtuous, The Pure.

Al-Zakiyah: The Chaste, The Unblemished.

Al-Radhiatul Mardhiah: She who is gratified and who shall be satisfied.

Al-Muhaddathah: A person other than a Prophet, that the angel’s speak too.

Al-Zahirah: The Luminous.

 

The Leader of all Women in Paradise

Like her Holy Infallible Father(pbuh&hf), she possessed all the intellectual abilities and achievements. Many verses of The Holy Koran were revealed in her praise and about her spiritual credits. The Holy Prophet of Islam(pbuh&hf) had given her several honorable titles among which one is:

The Holy Prophet her Father(pbuh&hf) loved her very much Whenever she would go to the house of her father The Holy Prophet(pbuh&hf) would stand up out of respect to her. Whenever he greeted her, and he would honor her by giving her a special place to seat herself in his house. Very often Her Father(pbuh&hf) would softly kiss her hands and say, “Allah(S.T.), The Most High; is pleased when Fatima(S.A.) is pleased. He is angered; whenever Fatima(S.A.) is angered!”

 

 

The Fatimah Al-Zahra(s.a.) Pleads Her Case

 

The Fatima Al-Zahra(s.a.) had now exhausted all possible avenues in her pursuit to reclaim her rightful inheritance to the Fadak, given to her by her Father The Holy Prophet Mohammad Al-Mustafa(pbuh&hf). But sadly her pleas fell on deaf ears. For this reason, and on the grounds of proving that she has been oppressed by those who professed righteousness under false pretense of faith and piety. At a very last resort the holy Lady Fatima Al-Zahra(s.a.), daringly went to her Father’s Mosque, to face her adversaries and delivered to them the most eloquent of words in her defense, which left the assembly speechless. She chose to proceed to the Mosque at a time when it was crammed with people, in order that her words reached the ears of all the people, who were somewhat accessories after the fact due to their silent approval of the events that occurred after the Holy Prophet’s demise. She addressed the assembly in a speech that was both harmonious and systematic. It was an impeccable speech in that it contained no minced words, and was free of equivocation, distortion and slander. Lady Fatima Al-Zahra(S.A.) used the occasion to firstly acquaint the people with Allah, The Most Exalted, and to disclose the merits of the Islamic religion and to clarify the cause and effect of the Islamic Laws. With this introduction she succeeded in securing the full attention of the assembly and created an appropriate atmosphere in which she could deliver her final statement which contained the underlying intentions and reasons that forced her to leave her house and proceed to the Mosque. And the reasons which warranted her leaving her house were, of course, the misappropriation by the so-called then self appointed caliph Abu Bakr of: The Fadak which was legally hers.
