  1. For the Prophet of Allah (S.A.W.) has said: "O Lord, increase my knowledge!"

  2. Regarding the spoils of war, before the waging of war of Badr, the Prophet(S.A.W.) promised his army of precious gifts that would be taken as spoils for any killing or captivity. He also declared: "Allah has promised me to give my conquests over them and make me seize their equipments as spoils."

  3. When Allah defeated the polytheists and their spoils were gathered together, a man from Ansar stood up and said to the Prophet(S.A.W.): "O Allah's messenger, you ordered us to fight the polytheists importunately and promised to give certain gifts, from the spoils, to everyone who captures or kills one of their army. I killed two of them and took one as captive and I can prove it. Now, we demand with that which you promised us, Allah's messenger."

  4. When the man sat down, Sa'd-bin-Ubada raised himself and said: O Allah's messenger, it was not a matter of cowardice at confronting the enemy or neglignce of the money or the spoils that prevented us from gaining what those individuals had gained. In fact, we anticipated that the army of the polytheists might have attacked you if we would take positions that are away from you or that they might have injured you if they noticed that you were alone. If you give such individual the shares that you have promised, the other Muslims will return without gaining anything of the spoils."

  5. The Prophet (S.A.W.) was turning his face away from them. After a while, Allah the Majestic revealed: They (the believers) ask you [Muhammad(S.A.W.)] about Al-Anfal: the booty captured (from the enemies) during a war. (Holy Qur'an 8:1) Al-Anfal is a name comprising everything that the believers gained on that day, such as the things that are meant in Allah's sayings:
    Whatever Allah grants to His Messenger (out of the property)... (Holy Qur'an 59:6).
    Know that whatever property you may gain... (Holy Qur'an 8:41) and
    Tell them, "It belongs to Allah and the Messengers. If you have faith, have fear of Allah. Settle the disputes among yourselves and obey Allah and His Messengers. (Holy Qur'an 8:1).
    On that acoount, Allah took the spils from their hands and put it in the hands of His Messenger and His. He then said: If you have faith, have fear of Allah. Settle the disputes among yourselves and obey Allah and His Messengers. (Holy Qur'an 8:1).

  6. On the other hand, Fatima (A.S.) tolerated both willingly and happily the poverty of her husband. She had to live a life of need and want. Imam Ali once asked her: "0 Fatima, do you have anything to eat?"
    "By He who asserted your right, we had nothing for the last three days".
    The Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H.) once asked her: "Why is your face growing pale?",
    "It is hunger" She explained.
    Nothing could have made Fatima (A.S.) endure this catastrophic situation if it was not for her faith in Allah and her belief in the necessity of jihad for His cause. Thus she became a partner of both her Father (P.B.U.H.) and her husband (A.S.) in their rewards promised by Allah in the hereafter.
    In addition, Fatima (A.S.) was an ideal in her following of the will of Allah's Messenger who said: "A woman's jihad is in being a good wife".

  7. As soon as the Prophet (S.A.W.) arrived in Madinah, Allah revealed to him: "Know that whatever property you may gain, one fifth belongs to Allah, the Messenger, the kindred, orphans, the needy and those who need money while on a journey. (This is the law) if you believe in Allah and what We revealed to Our Servant on the Day of Distinction (Badr) when the armies confronted each other.(Holy Qur'an 8:41) Allah's saying, 'belongs to Allah,' Is similar to the ordinary saying, "This thing belongs to Allah and to you,' but he does not dedicate anything to Allah.

  8. The messenger of Allah(S.A.W.) divided the spoils into five shares. He took the share of Allah for himself and dedicated it to the reference of Allah, yet it would be inherited after him. A share was given to the Prophet's relatives, namely sons of Abdul-Muttalib. Two shares were given to the Muslim orphans, one share to the poor, and one to the Muslim wayfarers whose journeys were not intended for commerce. These were the shares of the spoils in the battle of Badr, and this is the way of the spoils that are gained by fighting.

  9. Regarding the spoils for the gaining of which neither horses nor camels were exhausted, when Muhajirs, who were about one hundred individuals, arrived in Madinah, Ansar gave them half of their properties,including houses.When the Prophet(S.A.W.) was given triumph against the clans of Quraizah and Annazheer and he could seize their properties,he(S.A.W.) said to Ansar: "You may take Muhajirs out of your properties and houses and I will distribute these spoils among them exclusively. If not, I may distribute them among you all."

  10. Ansar suggested; "You may give them these spoils exclusively and leave them enjoying our properties and houses." Hence, Allah, the Blessed the Exalted, revealed: Whatever Allah grants to His Messenger (out of the property) of the people of the towns..." This is an indication to the clans of Quraizha and Annazheer." Since you did not have to exhaust your horses and camels... (Holy Qur'an 59:6). They were living in Madinah; hence, they were too near to need for horses and camels for invading them. Allah then says: The poor immigrants who were deprived of their homes and property, who seek favors and pleasures from Allah, and help Him and His Messenger will also have (a share in the said property). These people are the truthful ones. (Holy Qur'an 59:8).

  11. Thus, Allah dedicated these spoils to the Qureishites who emigrated with the Prophet (S.A.W.) and showed sincerity.
    Moreover, Allah excluded the emigrants of the other Arab clans. This is clear in His saying: "The immigrants who were deprived of their homes and property." The Qureishite chiefs used to confiscate the properties and homes of those who emigrated, but the other Arab clans did not do so with their members who emigrated.

  12. Then Allah praised Muhajirs to whom He dedicated the khums and acquitted them of hypocrisy for they had believed in him. This is clear in His saying: "These people are the truthful ones."

  13. After that, Allah praised Ansar as He referred to their distinctive deeds, affection to the emigrants whom they preferred to themselves without showing any sort of envy or malice towards them. Thus, Allah praised them so highly in His saying: Those who established a community center and embraced the faith before the arrival of the immigrants love those who have come to their town. They are not jealous of what is given to the immigrants. They give preference to them over themselves - even concerning the things that they themselves urgently need. Whoever controls his greed will have everlasting happiness. (Holy Qur'an 59:9).



  14. After the conquest of Makkah, some men were very malicious for the Muslims who overcame them in the battles and seized their properties, but when they converted to Islam with full loyalty, they sought Allah's forgiveness for their previous polytheism. They also prayed to Him to clean their heart from such feelings of malice against those who preceded them to faith. They also supplicated to Allah to forgive those believers so that their hearts will be thoroughly clean and the two became brothers.
    Allah, accordingly, praised those people exclusively. He said: Those who came later say: Lord, forgive us and our brothers who preceded us in the faith, and clear our hearts of any ill will against the believers. Lord, You are Compassionate and All-merciful. (Holy Qur'an 59:10).

  15. The Prophet(S.A.W.) gave the Qureishite muhajirs each according to his need that he estimated, because the spoils were not divided into five shares equally. He (S.A.W.) gave all the spoils to the Qureishite muhajirs and two men of the Ansar, namely Sahl-bin-Hunayf and Simak-bin-Kharasha (Abu-Dudgana) for their urgent need. He gave them out of his own share. He also dedicated seven gardens from the spoils of the clans of Quraizha and Annazheer, that no horses or camels were exhausted for capturing them, to himself. Fadak was one of these gardens which no horses or camels were exhausted for capturing it.

  16. Khaybar was a city three-day walk away from Madinah. It was within the properties of the Jews, but it was seized after a war. Therefore, the Prophet(S.A.W.) divided its properties as same as the distribution of the spoils of the battle of Badr. In this regard, Allah says: Whatever Allah grants to His messenger (out of the property) of the people of the towns, belongs to Allah, the Messenger, the kinsfolk, the orphans, the destitute and to those who may become needy while on a journey, so that it will not circulate only in the hands of rich ones among them. Take only what the Messenger gives to you and desist from what he forbids you. Have fear of Allah; Allah is severe in His retribution. (Holy Qur'an 59:7).
    These were the ways of the distributions of the other kind of spoils.

  17. The Prophet said to Ali: "Do you possess anything (which you can pay for the dowry) to marry Fatima'?" Imam Ali answered: "May my parents be your sacrifice! By Allah, there is not a thing of my affairs hidden from you; I own my sword, shield and the camel which I use for irrigation!!" Indeed, this was everything that Ali possessed in this world when he was about to get married!!

  18. The Messenger openheartedly listened to Ali and said: "Ali, you cannot do without your sword, for you have to struggle with it and defend yourself against the enemies of Allah. As for your camel, you need it to irrigate palm trees and support your family, and you need it as a means of travel But I accept the shield as a dowry from you; thus, sell it and bring me the money!!"
    Ali had won this shield from the booty of the battle of Badr. It was given to him by the Messenger, who named it Al-Hademah; because it destroyed all the swords which stuck it.

  19. He (p.b.u.h) said: "Avoid exaggeration in the (amounts of) dowries, because this causes enmity (between you)."

  20. Naturally, Ali's marriage to Fatima Zahra (a.s) raised envy and enmity in the hearts of some men; especially those who were rejected by Fatima and her father when they had asked for her hand. So it was not strange to see some Quraishans come to the Prophet and say: "Surely you have taken a lowly dowry for Fatima from Ali." The Prophet replied:
    "It was not I who gave (Fatima to) Ali in marriage, rather Allah did so on the night of ascension near the Lotus tree (in the seventh Heaven)..." He then added: "Verily I am a man just like you, I many (from) your women and give you my (marriageable) women in marriage, save Fatima, for her marriage was revealed in Heaven." The Prophet gave Abu Bakr some money and asked him to accompany Bilal and Salman, (or Ammar Ibn Yasir) to buy some household necessities for Fatima's house. The Prophet said to Abu Bakr: "Buy some appropriate household necessities for my daughter with this money."

  21. Allah's Messenger (S) paid special attention to Fatima Zahra (A), which he did not bestow on his other daughters for the following reasons:
    A. Her special characteristics and noble traits.

  22. 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.

  23. C. The Prophet 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.

  24. D. Fatima also is the mother of the Holy Imams who will lead humanity until the Day of Resurrection.

  25. Once his wife Ayesha (R.A.) asked him, "Do you love Fatima Zahra so much, that when she arrives you get up from your place to give respect to her and kiss her hands and make her sit next to yourself?"

  26. He replied, "Oh Ayesha! If you come to know why I love Fatima so much, you shall also love her." He considered her the part and parcel of his life, and used to say repeatedly, "Fatima (S.A.) is a piece of me, whosoever tortures her he has tortured me, and whoever pleases her has pleased me."

  27. One day, the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) of Islam said, "Oh Fatima God gets pleased on your being pleased and gets furious due to your unhappiness and displeasure.

  28. The revelation came and Fatima's husband was also nominated. God ordered the Prophet (P.B.U.H.), "Oh my prophet get the light (Noor) married to the light i.e., get Fatima (S.A.) married with Ali (A.S.)."

  29. When Ali (A.S.) approached the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) to request the hand of Fatima (S.A.) in marriage, although he had nothing with him from the wealth of the world, yet he possessed a gem, which was the reflection of every thing including piety and human nobility.

  30. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) having acceded to his request entered the house to ask Fatima (S.A.) her opinion about it. He said to her "Oh daughter you know fully well that Ali (A.S.) is the one who was the first ever faithful out of the lot. I had prayed to God, to give the best husband for you. Therefore, God has selected Ali (A.S.) for your husband, so what is your opinion?"
    Fatima (S.A.) remained silent. The father took her silence as the token of her being agreed and got her married with him.

  31. One day, when he (P.B.U.H.) visited Fatima's (S.A.) house he (P.B.U.H.) saw that Ali (A.S.) and Fatima (S.A.) were sleeping and Imam Hassan (A.S.) was weeping due to hunger. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) slowly picked up the pot, milked the goat, and fed the child who then became silent.

  32. Once, He (P.B.U.H.) was passing by the house of Fatima (S.A.) when suddenly he (P.B.U.H.) heard Imam Hussain (A.S.) crying. He came back to her home and said, "Oh Fatima! Don't you know that I get upset by the weeping of this child?"

  33. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) was on the bed of ailment and illness. His head was in the lap of Ali (A.S.) and Fatima (S.A.) was weeping holding the hand of her father. Suddenly, the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) opened his eyes and when he saw her weeping. He (P.B.U.H.) said, "Oh daughter! Recite the holy Quran for me." Fatima (S.A.) recited a few verses from the holy Quran. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) by getting her dear daughter recite the verses meant to listen her voice in the last moments of his life. No sooner, the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) passed away the house turned into a mourning house. The delicate heart of Fatima (S.A.) took a deep effect by her father's death.

  34. Only a few hours later, another big grief took shape i.e., the right of her husband was extorted and usurped. Fatima (S.A.), with the help of a few faithful companions of his father, defended the right of her husband strongly. So far so, that one day she went to the Prophet's mosque along with the women of Bani Hashim and Ansar and by delivering a speech described her object and point of view. So that, all the audience started weeping. But there was no body to give a positive response to the voice of Fatima (S.A.).

  35. They were no longer true and faithful. Their faces were covered with the dust of abjectness, misery and misfortune. She returned to her house with a heave and grieved heart and said to Ali (A.S.), "Oh Abul Hassan why have you sit down with your hands upon each other like weak, feeble, powerless and unable men and why don't you defend your right?" Ali (A.S.) said, "Oh the daughter of Prophet (P.B.U.H.) Do you not want that your father's name be pronounced in the mosque? Don't you have the desire that the cause and mission of your father remains alive? Fatima (S.A.) said, "Why not?"

  36. Then he said, "If I draw the sword today (as the enemy wishes) the efforts of your father will be finished and we will become unsuccessful. On hearing this, Fatima (S.A.) got silent and thereafter, she did not utter any word. She started her silent war in the same manner as her husband Ali (A.S.) spent twenty-five years in a great-oppressed state.
    "Innalil laha ina ilayha rajaoon"

  37. Volume 6 of Bihar Al-Anwar.
    Gabriel descended to the Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H.) and told him: 0 Muhammad! The Most Exalted sends His peace upon you and commands you to refrain from (coming close to) Khadija for forty days.
    It was difficult for the Prophet, who loved and adored Khadija to do so; nevertheless (in obedience to Allah’s command) he spent forty days fasting and praying nights. When it was close to the end of the forty days, he (P.B.U.H.) summoned Ammar Ibn Yasser and
    asked him to go to Khadija and tell her: "0 Khadija! do not assume that my separation from you means abandoning or forsaking you, rather my Lord commanded me to do so, so expect nothing save benevolence, for surely Allah (exalted is His Name) praises you to His most honorable angels several times a day. Therefore, with food nightfall, close the door and lay down to sleep; for I will be staying food at Fatima Bint Assad’s house." This brought sad tidings to Khadija who missed having the Prophet by her side.
    At the end of the forty days, Gabriel once again descended to Allah’s Messenger and said: "0 Muhammad! The Most Exalted sends His peace upon you and commands you to be prepared for His salutation and gift."
    The Prophet said:
    "Gabriel! What is the Lord of the world’s gift and what is His salutation?"
    Gabriel said: "I have no knowledge of it."
    At that moment, Michael descended with a plate covered with a kerchief made of brocade or sarcenet and presented it to the Prophet! Gabriel said to him (P.B.U.H.)
    "0 Muhammad, your Lord commands you to break your fasting with this food tonight."

  38. Imam Ali Ibn Abu Talib (A.S.) said in this regard: "The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) used to order me to open the door to whoever wanted to join him when he came to break his fast, but that night he ordered me to guard the door of the house and said to me: ‘0 son of Abu Talib! this food is forbidden to everyone save me.

  39. The He (P.B.U.H.) said: "I sat at the door, and the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) uncovered the plate, in privacy, tofind a cluster of dates and a bunch of grapes. He ate until satisfied and drank his need of water, He then extended his hands to he washed, so Gabriel poured the water, Michael washed his hands, and Israfil dried them. Thereafter, the remaining food with the plate ascended to heaven. Then he (P.B.U.H.) started to prepare him for prayers when Gabriel said to hint:
    Prayer is forbidden to you until you go to Khadija’s house and perform coition with he;; for Allah (Glory be to Him) ordained upon Himself to create noble progeny from you tonight. So he rushed to Khadija’s house.’
    Khadija said: "I had gotten used to seclusion by that time, so when night arrived I covered my head put down the curtains, locked the doors, performed my prayers, put out the lantern, and retired to my bed. That night while I was between the states of sleeping and being awake, the Prophet knocked on the door so I exclaimed that who is knocking on the door that only Muhammad knocks on?
    The Prophet gently and politely replied:
    Open the door Khadija, I any Muhammad.
    Khadija said:
    "I cheerfully got up and opened the door for the Prophet to come in. He (P.B.U.H.) usually requested the water jug to perform ablution and two short prayer prostration before he retired? On the contrary’, that night he (P.B.U.H.) did not request the jug nor did he perform prayers instead, what occurs between a woman and he (P.B.U.H.) occurred between us. And by Allah, who created the heavens and caused water to come out springs before the Prophet left me, I felt Fatima’s weight in my womb.
    It can he concluded from the above mentioned narration that:
    Allah Almighty commanded His Messenger to abandon Khadija a period of time so that his longing and wanting her increased.
    He (P.B.U.H.) performed more worship so as to achieve a higher level of spirituality and sacredness, as a result of being in constant contact with the heavenly world.
    He (P.B.U.H.) broke his fast on the pure heavenly gift, which was quickly transformed into sperm because of its delicateness.
    The sperm was produced from eating a delicate heavenly food that differs from material nutrition.
    The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) immediately proceeded to Khadija’s house in order to transfer the sperm to her womb after the previously mentioned preparations.
    The following Sunni scholars mentioned this narration with minor variations between some of their accounts of it: nKharazmi in his book Maqtal Al- Hussain P. 63 , 68.
    Dhahabi in Al-Etedal v.2, p. 26. Talkhees AI-Mustadrak V.3, p. 156. Asqalani in Lisan Al-Mizan V. 4, p. 36. In addition, there are various traditions with minor verbal differences and the same fundamental meaning that Fatima Zahra (A.S.) was created from a sperm produced from heavenly food. We mention herein some of these narration and restrict ourselves to the part which are related to our subject in observance of briefness and omit the rest:

  40. Imam Reza (A.S.) said: "The Prophet said (P.B.U.H.) ‘On the night of my ascension to Heaven, Gabriel took my hand and led me into Paradise, then he handed me dates from which I ate; those dates were formed into sperm. When I descended to Earth, I came unto Khadija who became pregnant with Fatima; thus, Fatima is a human huri, whom whenever I long for Paradise I smell’

  41.  Al-Bihar: 'The Messenger of Allah (S) 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..."'

  42. He (P.B.U.H.) commented: "Indeed, for Gabriel brought me an apple from heaven, which I ate and it was transformed into sperm that I placed in Khadija who later bore Fatima. Hence, I smell paradise’s fragrance in her."

  43. Ibn Abbas said: ‘Aisha entered the house while the Messenger of Allah was kissing Fatima, so she said: ‘Do you love her, 0 Messenger of Allah?’
    He replied: ‘Indeed, by Allah if you knew the extent of my love for her, your love would increase for her. When I was in the forth heaven... (until he said) 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 and she bore Fatima. Thus, Fatima is a human huri, when ever l long for paradise I smell her.’

  44. Some noble narrators mentioned that one day Lady Khadija (may Allah be pleased with her) asked the Master of creatures (the Prophet (P.B.U.H.)) to show her a fruit from the Dwell of Peace (Paradise). Thus, Gabriel brought him who was chosen above all (P.B.U.H.) two apples from Paradise and said:
    ‘0 Muhammad, He who appointed a due proportion for all things says to you:

  45. "Eat one apple and give the other to Lady Khadija, then come unto her, for I will create from you (both) Fatima Zahra."’ The Chosen One (P.B.U.H.) did what The Guardian (Gabriel) told him to do, and...(until he said). Thus, whenever the Chosen One (P.B.U.H.) longed for Paradise and its greatness, he would kiss Fatima and smell her beautiful fragrance and say: ‘Fatima is a human huri.

  46. One day, the Prophet entered the house and found Khadija speaking to someone while no one was in the room with her. He (P.B.U.H.) inquired as to whom she was speaking; she replied:
    ‘That which in my womb, surely it speaks to me.’
    Then the Prophet said:
    ‘Rejoice Khadija, for this is the girl whom Allah has made to be the mother of eleven of my successors who will come after me and after their father.
    Shuab Ibn Saad Al-Misri mentioned the following in Ar Rawd Al-Faeq p. 214:

  47. "At the time when Khadija’s pregnancy had become apparent, the infidels asked the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) to show them the splitting of the moon; upon hearing this Khadija declared:
    "0 what a disappointment it would he! Had Muhammad lied while he is the best Messenger of my Lord?"
    It was then that Fatima called Khadija from her womb and said:
    "0 Mother, do not be grieved nor sorrowful, for surely Allah is with my father." When Fatima was born, the skies became illuminated from the brightness of her face.

  48. During the time of the illness of the Holy Prophet (saw)
    Fatimah (as), Prophet Muhammad's (saaw) only living child, used to visit him every day during his illness. He always rose to greet her and gave her the most comfortable place. Aisha saw her crying beside him, then she saw her laugh immediately afterwards. When she was alone with her, she asked her what had made her cry, then what had made her laugh immediately afterwards, and she said, 'I am not to betray the confidence of the Messenger of Allah (saaw).'
    After Muhammad (saaw) had passed away, she explained to Aisha. She had cried because he told her he would be collected to Allah (swt) in this illness, then she laughed when he told her she would be the first of his family to join him. Six months later Fatimah (as) had also passed away.

  49. Holy Prophet (saw) said, “Every fourty houses in front, at the back, on the right and on the left are to be considered as neighbours”.

  50. Therefore, the meaning of the Prophet’s saying: "Religion succeeded and became manifest only through Ali’s sword and Khadija‘s property,"

  51. Once the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) mentioned Khadija near Aisha,
    Aisha responded: "She was not but a such and such of an old lady, and Allah replaced her with a better one for you." He replied:
    "Indeed Allah did not grant me better than her; she accepted me when people rejected me, she believed in me when people doubted me, she shared her wealth with me when people deprived me, and Allah granted me children only through her.
    "My father said to me: `He who prays on your behalf, Allah, Exalted and Glorified is He, shall forgive him and make him join me wherever I may be in Paradise."

  52. It is reported in Bihar that Ali (A) said to a man from Bani Sae'ed:
    "Should I speak to you about Fatima and Myself?
    She was my spouse who was the most beloved to the Prophet. Once, she carried water using a waterskin 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?'
    When Fatima (A) went to the Prophet she found that he had company; and was too shy to talk to him, so she left the house. But the Prophet (S) knew that she had come for something."
    Imam Ali (A) continued:
    "The next morning, the Prophet came to the house while we were still under our quilt and said:
    '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.'
    He (S) 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 1 said to he:
    `Why don't ask your father for a servant to relieve you form these jobs?'"
    The Prophet (S) upon hearing this, said:
    `Shall I teach you something that is better for you than a servant and a 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 illaha ila Allah. Surely this is better for you than that 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.'
    'Abu Haroun, surely we command our children to adhere to `Tasbih Fatima' the same way we command them to perform prayers. So perform the tasbih, for whoever adheres to it shall never be miserable.'"
    In reference to Fatima's beads, it was reported in Makarim al-Akhlaq that it was made of woven wool threads which had knots by the number of Takbir (Allahu Akbar), until when Hamza Ibn Abdal Muttalib (A) was martyred, she made them from the mud of his grave.
    Since the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (A), people have been using the mud surrounding his tomb for making beads for the great blessings, which lie in it.

  53. 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.

  54. The Messenger (S) performed the engagement proceedings in the mosque while he was on the Minbar, in the presence of the Muslims, so as to enact the practice of announcing and assigning witnesses to engagement proceedings; and specified the amount of dowry, so that the Muslims could follow his practice in requesting modest dowries for marriages. He said: "Avoid exaggeration in the (amounts of) dowries, because this causes enmity (between you)."

  55. More interesting is the following statement that was mentioned in Safinat al-Bihar on the authority of Mujahid in which Asma was said to have been present at Aisha's marriage. In the statement it was claimed that Asma said:
    "I was the one who, in the company of other women, prepared Aisha and brought her to the Messenger of Allah. By Allah, he had not but a cup of buttermilk which he drank and gave to Aisha; but she was too shy to take it, so I said to her: 'Do not reject it; it is from the hand of the Prophet.'
    She then took it and after drinking some, he (S) said: `Give some to your friends.' But the women did not desire any.
    The Prophet then said: 'Do not gather hunger and lying together.'
    I said: `Messenger of Allah, is it considered lying if one of us says she does not like something?'
    The Prophet replied: `Surely lying is counted (against the person) up to the point that even a small lie is recorded too."

  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. Historians write that Khadeejah (as) began to sense the presence of a refreshing fragrance around her wherever she went.She asked her husband why it was so and He (saw) replied;
    “You are carrying Fatimah in your womb and the fragrance is of paradise which she has brought with her”

  58. She was named Fatimah by Allah (SWT).Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (as) has said;
    The Messenger of Allah said; O’Fatimah! Do you know why you have been given the name Fatimah?
    Ali(as) asked; Why was she named Fatimah?
    He (saw) replied;Because she and her followers are protected from hell”.

  59. Following are several narrations reported by Ahlul-Bayt (A) regarding Fatima (A) on the Last Day: 1. Hakim reported in Al-Mustadrak v.2, p.153 that Ali (S) 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."
    This narration has also been reported by: Ibn Al-Athir in Usd al-Ghaba v.5, p.523;
    Ganji Shafiee in Kifayat At-Talib p. 212; Dhahabi in Mizan al-Etedal v.2, p.18; and by
    Hamwini in Yanabi' al-Mawaddah p.104, who added the following to it:

  60. Ali (A) reported that the Prophet said:
    "On the Day of Rising, a caller shall call from the sole of the Throne:

  61. "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: "O (Allah), You are the Omnipotent and Just; pass the judgment between me and those who killed my son." (The Prophet (S) added): "Then He shall judge according to my Sunnah, by the Lord of Kaaba, Fatima will then say:

  62. "O Allah! grant me intercedence for everyone who cried for his disaster; Allah will then grant her intercedence for them."

  63. Bihar v.6: 'Once, the Prophet (S) summoned Ali, Fatima, Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain (A) and ordered everyone present in the house to leave. He then ordered Umme Salama to stand at the door so no one could come near it.
    The Prophet (S) then said to Ali: "Come near me."
    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. 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 (S) crying.

  64. 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? Who does Ali, your brother and the helper of your religion, have after you? Who is to (attend to) Allah's revelation and affair?"

  65. Fatima then broke down crying and embraced him together with Ali, Hassan and Hussain (A). The Prophet raised his head, and while holding Fatima's hand, he placed it in Ali's hand and said:
    '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.'

  66. '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.'
    'Ali, Execute that which Fatima commands you to do, for I have commanded her to (perform certain affairs) which Gabriel ordered me to do. Be informed, Ali that I am satisfied with him who my daughter is satisfied with, so is my Lord and the angels.
    'Ali, Cursed is he who oppresses her;
    Cursed is he who usurps her right;
    Cursed is he who violates her sanctity..."
    The Prophet then embraced Fatima (A), 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.

  67. Imam Hassan and Imam Hussain (A) began crying and kissing his feet; when Imam Ali (A) 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) 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"

  68. 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 honour 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, The Most High; is pleased when Fatimah(a.s.) is pleased. He is angered; whenever Fatimah is angered!"

  69. Among the signs indicating Fatimah's exalted status with Allah is an incident related by both Shi'i and Sunni traditionists on the authority of Maymunah (the Holy Prophet's wife), who reported that Fatimah(a.s.) was found asleep one day, the handmill beside her turning of its own accord. She informed the Apostle of Allah of this, and he said: "Allah knew the weak condition of His handmaid; He thus inspired the handmill to turn by itself, and so it did." Among the reports asserting her excellence and high distinction over all other women is the tradition reported on the authority of `A'ishah who said: "I never saw a man more beloved of the Apostle of Allah than `Ali(a.s.), or a woman more dear to him than Fatimah(a.s.)."

  70. Sunni traditionists also reported on the authority of the Commander of the Faithful Imam Ali(a.s.)who said: "I asked the Messenger of Allah, `Who is more beloved to you, Fatimah(a.s.) or I?' He answered, `Fatimah(a.s.) is more beloved to me, and you are dearer to me than she is.' " These traditionists also reported from Anas ibn Malik that: "Fatimah(a.s.) is the most excellent of all the women of the world." In another tradition it is reported that the Holy Prophet(pbuh&hf) said: "The most excellent among the women of the world are: Maryam daughter of `Imran (that is, the virgin Mary), Asiyah daughter of Muzahim (wife of Pharaoh), Khadijah daughter of Khuwaylid and Fatimah(a.s.) daughter of Muhammad(pbuh&hf)" It is also related on the authority of Ibn `Abbas who said: "The most excellent of the women of Paradise are: Khadijah daughter of Khuwaylid, Fatimah(a.s.) daughter of Muhammad, Maryam daughter of `Imran and Asiyah daughter of Muzahim." Traditionists report that `Abdu 'r-Rahman ibn `Awf said: "I heard the Apostle of Allah say, `I am a tree, Fatimah(a.s.) is its trunk and 'Ali(a.s.) is its pollen. Hasan(a.s.) and Husayn(a.s.) are its fruits, and our followers (Shi'ah) are its leaves. The roots of the tree are in the Garden of Eden, and its trunk, fruits and leaves are in Paradise.' "

  71. Traditionists further report on the authority of `A'ishah that: "Whenever Fatimah(a.s.) came to the Messenger of Allah, he would rise from his seat, kiss her on the forehead, and make her sit with him." Traditionists have also reported on the authority of 'Ali ibn Ibrahim al-Qommi in his commentary of the Holy Qur'an, as related on the authority of the sixth Imam as-Sadiq, Ja'far ibn Muhammad(a.s.), who said: "We were told that our forefathers said that the Messenger of Allah often indulged in kissing the mouth of Fatimah(a.s.) the mistress of the women of the world, so that `A'ishah finally protested saying, `O Messenger of Allah, I see you indulge so often in kissing the mouth of Fatimah(a.s.) and placing your tongue in her mouth.' He answered, `Yes, O `A'ishah, when I was taken up to heaven, Gabriel took me into Paradise and brought me near the tree of Tuba (beatitude). He gave me an apple of its fruits which I ate. Thus when I returned to earth, Khadijah, conceived Fatimah(a.s.). Whenever, therefore, I yearn for Paradise, I kiss her and place my tongue in her mouth, for I find in her the fragrance of Paradise. I also sense in her the fragrance of the tree of Tuba. Fatimah(a.s.) is thus a celestial human being.' "

  72. In the Sahih of al-Tirmidhi, Ya'la bin Murrah is quoted to have said, "The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) said, 'Hussein is from me and i am from Hussein. Allah loves whoever loves Hussein. Hussein is a disciple of the disciples."

  73. Salman al-Farsi is reported to have said, "I heard the Prophet of Allah (s.a.w.) saying, 'Hassan and Hussein are my two sons. Whoever loves them then he loves me. And whoever dislikes them then he dislikes me. And whoever dislikes me then Allah dislikes him. And whomever Allah dislikes, He will throw him into hell face downward.'"

  74. Al-Bara' bin Azib is quoted to have said, "I saw the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) carrying Hussein bin Ali (a.s.) on his shoulder. He was saying, 'O Lord! I do love him so love him.'"

  75. Abdullah bin Mas'ood is reported to have said, "The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) said, concerning Hassan and Hussein, 'These are my two sons, whoever loves them then he loves me. And whoever dislikes them he dislikes me.'"

  76.

  77. Usamah ibn Zayd narrated: I went to the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) one night about something I required and he came out with something (I did not know what) under his cloak. When I had finished telling him my business I asked him what he had under his cloak, and when he opened it I saw al-Hasan and al-Husayn on his hips.

  78. He then said, "These are my sons and my daughter's sons. O Allah, I love them, so I beseech Thee to love them and those who love them." Sunni References: - Sahih Tirmidhi, per: - Mishkat al-Masabih, by Khatib al-Tabrizi, English Version, Tradition #6156

Anas then said (to him): "Al-Husain resembled the Prophet more than any other people." Sunni Reference: Sahih al-Bukhari, Arabic-English, v5, Tradition #91

  83. The Holy Prophet(S.A.W.) Crying For Imam Husain(A.S.) Narrated Salma: "I went to visit Umm Salamah and found her weeping. I asked her what was making her weep and she replied that she had seen Allah's Messenger (S.A.W.) (meaning in a dream) with dust on his head and beard. She asked him what was the matter and he replied, `I have just been present at the slaying of al-Husayn.'" - Sahih Tirmidhi, per: - Mishkat al-Masabih, by Khatib al-Tabrizi, English Version, Tradition #6157

  84. Narrated Abdullah Ibn Abbas: One day at midday he saw in a dream the Prophet (S.A.W.) disheveled and dusty with a bottle containing blood in his hand and said, "You for whom I would give my father and mother as ransom, what is this?" He replied, "This is the blood of al-Husayn and his companions which I have been collecting today." He told that he was reckoning that time and found that he had been killed at that time. - Musnad Ahmad Hanbal; - Dala'il an-Nubuwwah, by al-Bayhaqi; per: - Mishkat al-Masabih, by Khatib al-Tabrizi, English Version, Tradition #6172

  85. Aisha narrated: The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) said: "Gabriel informed me that my grandson al- Husain (A.S.) will be killed after me in the land of al-Taff and brought me this Turbah (mudd/soil) and informed me that this is the soil of the place he will be martyred."

  87. You would see him holding on to Ali (A.S.), the master of his progeny, his cousin and father of his "sons", in the middle of the road he would kiss him and repeat his saying: "My father is your ransom. (You) The lonely the martyr." As reported by 'Aesha, the mother of believers, Sunni references: · al-Hafidh abu-Yaala al-Mousilly, in his Musnad
    an many scholars took from him. Many of the narrators reported the correct hadeeth of Ibn-Abbas: "I went out with the prophet (S.A.W.) and Ali (A.S.) by the walls of Madina, we passed by a garden. Ali (A.S.) said: What a beautiful garden this is Oh' prophet of Allah? He (the prophet) said: Your garden in Paradise is more beautiful than this. Then he pointed with his hand to his (Ali's) head and beard and cried till he was loudly crying. We said: What makes you cry? He said: Hatred in the hearts of a people, they do not display till they loose me."

  88. In a narration according to Anas bin Malik:"Then the prophet put his head on one of Ali's shoulders and cried. He said to him: What makes you cry, Oh, messenger of Allah? He said: Hatred in the chests of peoples, they don't display until I depart from this world."Also, according to Ameerul Moemineen (Ali):
    "When the road was clear for me, he hugged me and cried loudly. I said: Oh messenger of Allah, what makes you cry? He said: Hatred in the chests of peoples, they don't display to you until after me."Sunni Ref, where all three narrations are recorded:· Musnad al-Bazzaz;· al-Mu'jam al-Kabeer, al-Tabarani , · Musnad abu-Ya'la ,· Tareekh al-Sham, Ibn 'Asakir ,· Majma' al-Haithami , · more references can be found in "Al-Ghadeer", by al-Ameeni.

  89. The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) used to attend to his (Ali's) patience and solidarity and say (s) to him (as): "How is your patience if that was dyed (colored) from this? Pointing with his hand to his beard and head. Ali said: Wasn't I tested when I was tested, so this is not from among the things of patience, but it is from those of good tidings and dignity." So the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) is pleased with such beautiful expressions, which describes the greatness of Ali's self and his love in the way of Allah, Almighty.
    Sunni Ref: · al-Mu'jam al-Kabeer, al-Tabarani.

  90. Aisha Bint Talha quoted Aisha as saying:
    "I have not seen anyone more similar to the Messenger in speech and dialogue than Fatima. Whenever she entered the house, he would greet her, kiss her hands and ask her to sit near him. Likewise, when he entered the house, she would greet him, kiss his hands and etc....."

  91. Ibn Umar said: "Once the Prophet (S) kissed Fatima's head and said: `May your father be your sacrifice; stay as you are ...."

  92. According to Dhakhear al-Uqbi, Aisha said:

  100. The Prophet replied: "Batoul is she who never see blood, meaning that she never discharges menstrual blood; because menstruation is resented if it occurs in Prophet's daughters."

  101. The above-mentioned narration was authenticated by Al-Hakim.
    A1-Hafez Abu Bakr Ash-Shafe'i narrates in Tarikh Baghdad v.13, p.331, on the account of Ibn Abbass that the Prophet said: "My daughter is a human huri, she never menstruates, nor does she encounter any menses."

  106. Aisha Bint Talha quoted Aisha as saying:  "I have not seen anyone more similar to the Messenger in speech and dialogue than Fatima. Whenever she entered the house, he would greet her, kiss her hands and ask her to sit near him. Likewise, when he entered the house, she would greet him, kiss his hands and etc....."

  110. Qandouzi reported that Aisha said:
    "Whenever the Prophet returned from a trip, he would kiss Fatima's throat and say:
    "From her, I do smell the fragrance of Paradise."

  111. Masrouq reports that 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. (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?"
    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)!'
    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.' 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 theMistress of believing women (or the Mistress of the women of my Ummah)?"

    Sharh al Nahj al Balagah Volume 2 page 451

  115. Sahih al-Bukhari Hadith: 4.327 (page 213) Narrated Ibn Abbas:
    The delegates of the tribe of Abdul Qais came and said: `O Allah's Apostle ! We are from the tribe of Rabia and between us and you stand stand the infidels of the tribe of Mudar, so we cannot come to you except in the Haram Months. So please order us some instructions that we may apply it to ourselves and also invite our people left behind us to observe as well. ' The Prophet (PBUH) said: `I order you to do four (4) things and forbid you to do four (4): I order you to believe in Allah, that is, to testify that None has the right to be worshipped but Allah (the Prophet (PBUH) pointed with his hand) ; to offer prayers perfectly, to pay Zakat, to fast the month of Ramadhan, and to pay the Khums.

  116. Imam Ali (AS) said that he heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying: I have granted in Ali five things, none of which was granted to any Prophet (PBUH) before me. One of these is that Ali will repay my debts and will bury me. Sunni reference:- Musnad of Imam Ahmed, v5, p45 - Musnad of Imam Ahmed, v6, p155
    - Kanz al-Ummal, v6, pp 153,155,404

    I shall cite a Quranic Verse in the support of the statement that the heirs of the Prophet (PBUH) repaid his debts. With reference to the Quranic Verse (26: 124), Ibn Mardawayh has recorded a tradition as related by Ali, who said that when the verse "Give warning to your closest relatives" was revealed, the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:
    "Ali will repay my debts and fulfill my promises."
    - Kanz al-Ummal, v6, p401

    Again Imam Ahmed (in his Musnad) states a hadith from the Prophet (PBUH) as follows:
    "None will repay my debts and discharge my duties except me or Ali." - Musnad of Imam Ahmed, v4, p174

  117. Jabir Ibn Abdullah said:
    "A beduin came to the Prophet (S) and said: 'Muhammad, present Islam to me.'
    'The Prophet replied: `Bear witness that there is no God but Allah, to whom an associate does not exist; and that Muhammad is the slave and Messenger of Allah. '
    The beduin said: `Do you require any reward from me (for bringing me to Islam)?'
    He (S) answered: `No, save loving the nearest of kin.'
    The beduin then asked: `Mine or yours?'

When the prophet (s) saw them his eyes overflowed and his color changed. I said to him: We see something you hate in your face? He said: We are the people of the household (Ahlul Bayte) Allah has chosen for us the thereafter over this world and that the family of my household will encounter after me trials, dispersement and expulsion. Until a people come forward from the east, along with them black flags, they ask for justice but it is not offered. So they fight and strike and are then given what they asked for. They don't accept it until they push it forward to a man from my Ahlul Bayte. Then he fills it with justice as they filled it with injustice. Therefore, whomever lives to see that from among you should come to them, even if crawling on the snow."

Anybody angered you? Why are your eyes overflowing (with tears)? He said: But Gabriel just left me and informed me: That al-Hussain will be killed at the river al-Furat (Shattul Furat). He said: Do you want me to show you from his sand? He said: I said yes. He extended his hand and grabbed and handful of dirt and gave it to me. So I could not help it, my eyes overflowed."

  166. It is Allah's wish to keep away all blemish from you, O Ahl al Bayt, and keep you purify with a perfect purification. [33: 33]
    Al Tirmizi, Ibn Manthoor, Al Hakim, Ibn Mardawaih and Al Bayhaqi in his Sunan, all recorded the report of Umme Salemah, wife of the Prophet (saww) in which she said:

    In my own house the Quranic verse: Certainly God wants to keep away all abominations from you .... Ali (as) Fatima (as), Al Hassan (as) and Al Hussein (as) were at my house. The messenger of God covered them with a garment and then said: These are the members of my House. God keep away abomination from them and keep them pure and spotless. (Sahih al Tirmizi, Vol. 5 pg. 328 Hadith no. 3875)

    And whoever disputes with thee concerning him after the inspired knowledge which has been given untoo thee, tell him: ' Come, let us call our sons and your sons; our women and your women; and ourselves and yourselves; then let us pray and invoke Allah's curse upon those who lie. [3: 61]

    When the above verse came down (at the time of debate between the Messenger and the Christians from Najran), the Messenger of God (saww) called upon Ali (as), Fatima (as), Hasan (as) and Hussein (as) and said: God, these are the members of my family. (Sahih Muslim Vol. 15 pg. 176)

    Allah, the Exalted said:
    "If anyone disputes in this matter with thee, now after (full) knowledge hath come to thee, say: `Come! Let us gather together; our sons arid your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves. Then let us invoke the curse of God on those who lie!'" (3: 61)

    This event is famous and is known to all Muslims. Islamic scholars are united on the fact that it was revealed in regard to the Christian delegation who came from Najran to dispute the issue of Isa Ibn Maryam (A) with the Prophet (S). In v.6 of Bihar, Imam Ali (A) mentioned the event in the following manner:

    A delegation of Najrani Christians led by three prominent men, Al-Aqib, Muhsen, and the Archbishop; these meet along with two prominent jews came to the Prophet (S). They intended to argue with him; the archbishop started:

    "Abu Al-Qasim, who was Musa's father?"

    The Prophet answered: "Imran."

    The archbishop then said: "Who was Yusufs father?"

    The Prophet answered: "Yaqoub."

    The archbishop continued: "May I be your sacrifice; who is your father?"

    The Prophet answered: "Abdullah Ibn Abd al-Muttalib."

    Then the archbishop asked: "Who is Isa's (Jesus) father?"

    The Prophet (S) waited a moment while Gabriel revealed the following to him: "(Say) he was the Spirit of Allah and His Word."

    The archbishop then asked: "Can he be a spirit without having a body?"

    Again a revelation was sent to the Prophet (S) the revelation is as follows:

    "The similitude of Isa before Allah is as that of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him: `Be.' And he was."

    When the archbishop heard this, he jumped in objection to the Prophet saying that Isa (A) was created from dust, and said:

    "Muhammad, We don't find this to be in the Torah, the Bible, or in the Zabour. You are the first one to say this."

    This was the moment that the verse of Mubahala was revealed.

    After the delegation had heard the verse, they said:

    "Assign for us a solemn meeting (in which every side supplicates to Allah to curse the other side if they are followers of falsehood)."

    The Prophet's answer to this was: "Tomorrow morning, if Allah wills."

    The next morning, the Prophet finished his morning prayers and ordered Ali to follow him and Fatima, in turn, holding Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain to follow Ali.

    The Prophet (S) then told them: "When I supplicate you should say: Amen."

    When the delegation saw the holy family and that the Prophet (S) had spread a mat for himself and family, they said to each other:

    "By Allah, he is a true Prophet; and if he curses us, surely Allah will answer his prayer and destroy us. The only thing that can save us, is to ask him to relieve us from this meeting."

    Razi, in his interpretation of the Holy Quran states:

    'The Archbishop said: "O Christians, I surely see faces of men, who if they were to ask Allah to move a mountain, He would surely do it. Do not hold this meeting, or you shall be destroyed and no Christian will remain on Earth until the Day of Resurrection."

    The delegation proceeded toward the Messenger and said: "Abu Al-Qasim, relieve us (from this) solemn meeting."

    The Prophet said: "Indeed I will; but the One who sent me with righteousness is my witness that had I cursed you, Allah would not have left a Christian on the face of the earth."

    This has been a summary of the story. What matters to us here, is Allah's saying in the verse:

    "Our women and your women."

    All Muslims have agreed that the Prophet took Ali with him to represent "ourselves,"

    Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain to represent "Our Sons," and Fatima Zahra to represent "Our Women," It is also a given fact that he did not accompany any other woman including his wives, his aunts, or any other Muslim women.

    This proves that there was not a woman as excellent, great, holy, and chaste as Fatima (A) was. The Prophet called Fatima alone to join him, because she was the only woman capable of fulfilling the qualifications of the verse

  167. Al-Bihar:  'The Messenger of Allah (S) 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..."'

  168. 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...'"

  169. 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." 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 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!!'"

  170. Hakim Nishabouri reported in his book Mustadrakthat he said to Fatima:  Is it not satisfying to you to be the Mistress of the women of the world, this Ummah and believing women?"

So cAa’eshah said: You ask me about a man! By Allah, I do not know a man more beloved to Rasoolollaah than cAli; and I do not know a woman on the earth more beloved to him than Faatimah.)).

  172.  Both Moslem and Bakri scholars narrate from Ibn cAbbaas who said that on his deathbed, Rasoolollaah said the following about Faatimah(AaS)[10]((…And when I saw her, I remembered what will be done to her after me. As if I can see the degradation enter her house, and her sacredness violated, and her rights usurped, and her inheritance kept away from her, and her ribs broken, and her fetus killed; while she cries: O my Mohammad! But she will not be answered. And asks for help, but she will not be helped. Thus, she will remain after me sorrowful, grief-stricken and crying. Remembering the end of revelation from her home, at one time, and remembering my absence, at another time. She will feel desolated when the night falls, as she can no longer listen to me reciting the Qor’aan. Then she finds herself humiliated after having been respected at the time of her father; thus Allaah shall cheer her up and call on her with what He called on Maryam[11] the daughter of cEmraan[12]/[13], so He would say: O Faatimah! Surely Allaah has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above the women of the world. O Faatimah! Keep to obedience to your Lord and perform sojood[14] and perform rokooc[15] with those who perform rokooc.Then the pain will start, and she will fall ill; so Allaah, the Great, the Almighty, shall send Maryam the daughter of cEmraan to her to nurse her and keep her company. She then shall say: O Lord! I have surely become bored with the life, and have been annoyed by the people; so join me with my father. And Allaah, the Great, the Almighty will join her with me; and she will be the first to join me from my family. Thus she will come to me sorrowful, anguished, grief-stricken, usurped, killed. Rasoolollaah then added: O Allaah! Keep away from Your Mercy him who does her injustice, and punish him who usurps her, and humiliate him who humiliates her, and keep forever in Your Fire him who hits her side causing the miscarriage of her fetus. And the angels said: Aameen[16].)). [10] cAlayhas Salaam, peace be upon her. [11] Also Mary[12] Also Amran.[13] Holy Qor’aan = soorah 3, aayaat 42 and 43.[14] A particular position in salaat in which the forehead, the palms, the knees and the toes of both feet are placed on the ground. Sojood is also performed on its own—not as part of a salaat—for  a number of reasons, some of which are mandatory whereas others are recommended.[15] A particular position in salaat in which a person bows down, placing the palms on the knees, whilst keeping the legs and the back in a straight position.[16] Amaali / al-Sadooq = page 112.

  173. And Rasoolollaah(SAA)[3] as God’s Messenger, had to inform people of Faatimah’s great abilities, so that they may use them to the best of their capabilities in their journeys through the various levels of completeness and perfection. Therefore, one of the things he emphasized was Faatimah’s ability to know, beyond any doubt, what makes God satisfied and what makes Him angry. And because Allaah had granted her cElm al-Ghayb and the cEsmah, her satisfaction and anger reflected that of Allaah. Therefore, the Prophet tied Allaah’s satisfaction and anger to that of Faatimah(AaS)[4], so people may know Allaah’s satisfaction and anger. [3] Sallallaah cAlayh wa Aalih, Allaah’s Blessings be upon him and his descendants. [4] cAlayhas Salaam, peace be upon her.

He used every opportunity and used different words and various methods to transmit this to the people in such a way that even her Bakri enemies narrated them, despite the fact that they were terribly damaging to their leaders, especially Aboo Bakr and cOmar. For instance, Bakri scholars narrate from Rasoolollaah, who said: ((Verily, Allaah, the Great, the Almighty surely becomes angry for Faatimah’s anger, and becomes satisfied for Faatimah’s satisfaction[5]/[6].)).

  179. 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 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.'  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."

  192. The Prophet (pbuh) used to embrace and kiss Hassan (as) and his younger brother Hussein (as). He carried them on his shoulders and let them ride on his back while he was in prostration. Once Abu Bakr saw the Prophet (pbuh) carrying his grandsons on his back and exclaimed to them: “what an excellent ride you have!” And the Prophet (pbuh) replied: “and what excellent riders they are!” He called them two sweet basils, and the leaders of the youths of paradise. Hassan (as) was an infallible member of the holy household mentioned in the ayah Tat’heer (33.33) Verily, Allah intends to remove all impurity from you, oh family of the house of the prophet, and purify you a thorough purification. This is confirmed by Hadith e Kisa or the Tradition of the Cloak. Once the Prophet (pbuh) was feeling ill, so he asked Fatima (as) to give him a Yemani cloak to lie under. Hassan (as) entered and smelled the sweet scent of his grandfather. His mother informed him that he was lying under the cloak. Hassan (as) approached the cloak and asked his grandfather for permission to enter with him. It was granted to him, and subsequently as well to Hussein (as), Ali (as)and Fatima (as).

  195. As the third most complete person ever to be created after Rasoolollaah and Ameer al-Mo’meneen, Faatimah was the most important woman of her time, before her time and after her time. And this is not what her friends say; it is what Allaah says, and her enemies narrate.

  196. Bakri scholars narrate from Hothayfah, one of the most respected companions of Rasoolollaah, who said: ((When Rasoolollaah finished his salaat, he left and I followed him. While he was walking, someone came and spoke with him and then left. I continued following the Prophet, and as he heard me, he asked: Who is this? I said: Hothayfah. He said: What do you want? So I told him what had happened between my mother and me.  And he said: May Allaah forgive you and your mother. Did you not see the person who just came to see me? I said: Yes. He said: He was an angel who had not descended to the earth before this night; he asked for permission from his God to come greet me and inform me that Hasan and Hosayn are the “Masters of the Youths of Heaven” and that Faatimah is the “Chief of the Women of the World”[38].)).

  207. Al-Bukhari and Muslim report on the authority of al-Bara', that he said: "I saw the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) carrying Hasan bin Ali (a.s.) on his shoulder. He was saying: 'O Mord! I love him, so love him'"

  208. Al-Tirmidhi reports from bin Abbas as saying: "The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w ) was carrying Hasan bin Ali'(a.s.), when a man said: 'What an excellent mount you are riding, lad.' 'What an excellent rider he is,' the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) replied."

  209. Al-Hafid Abu-Na'im reports on the authority of Abu Bakr, who said: "The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) was leading us in prayer. Hasan, who was still a child, would come to him while he was in prostration, and sit on his back or sometimes on his neck. The Prophet (s.a.w.) would lift him tenderly. When the prayer was finished, they (the Muslims) asked him: 'O Messenger of Allah! You are doing to this boy what you do not do to another person?'
    'He is my basil,' he replied."

  210. Anas bin Malik said: "The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) was asked: 'Who is most loved by you from among your family?' 'Hasan and Hussein,' he answered."

  211. A'ishah reports that "the Prophet would pick up Hasan and embrace him and say: 'O Mord! This is my son, and I love him. Move him, and love who loves him'

  212. Jabir bin Abdullah says: "The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) said: 'He who pleases to look at the Lord of the Youths of Paradise, let him look at Hasan bin Ali.'"

  213. Ya'la bin Murrah says: "We went with the Prophet (s.a.w.) to a feast, to which we were invited. We ran into Hasan (a.s.) who was playing near the road. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) went ahead of the people hurriedly, and put out his hand to the boy. Then he pretended to pass by Hasan one time on his right hand, and another time on his left hand, to make the boy laugh. Then he approached him. He put one hand on his neck and the other on his head. Presently he embraced and kissed him. Then he said: 'Hasan is from me and I am from him. Allah loves whoever loves him."'

  214. Al-Ghazali in his book, Al-Ihya' (Revival), reports that the Prophet (s.a.w.) had said to Hasan: 'You resemble me in my appearance and disposition."

  215. Sayeda Fatima (as) delivered her firstborn, healthy baby boy at age 12. The midwives wrapped him in a yellow cloth, and presented him to his grandfather, the Holy Prophet (pbuh) of Islam (pbuh) who read the adhan in his right ear and the iqama in his left. The Prophet (pbuh) was displeased, and removed the yellow cloth, replacing it with a white one. At the time, nobody knew the reason for this, but modern experiments in psychology have shown that the color yellow makes newborns anxious and nervous, while white makes them feel calm and secure. Fatima (as) and Ali (as)asked the Prophet (pbuh) to name the child. The angel Gabriel revealed to the Prophet, that he should name him Shubbar, after the progeny of the Prophet (pbuh) Aaron, since Imam Ali (as) held the same position to the Prophet (pbuh) as Aaron to Moses, except there would be no Prophet (pbuh) after him. However, the Prophet (pbuh) replied to Gabriel that his tongue was Arabic, (he was an Arabic speaker). Gabriel then told him to call him Al Hassan (as), by the order of Allah, lord of the worlds.

  216. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.) loved Imam Hasan very much and treated him with great honor and respect. He would kiss Imam Hasan (a.s.) and say: I love Hasan and I love the friends of Hasan. He would also say: Hasan and Husain are the leaders of the youths of Paradise.

  217. Many times the Prophet had said, "Hasan and Husayn are my children. Because of these same words Ali would say to his other children, ..You are my children and Hasan and Husayn are the children of the Prophet."

  218. The Holy Prophet told him, 'O Hasan, you are like me in features and character and manners.' Also he said, 'Hasan is from me and Husain is from `Ali.'

  219. He hastened to the house of his daughter, the chaste Zahra', to communicate his congratulations and show his delight The blessed newborn baby was taken to him, in the arms of Um-Salamah, or in another version, Asma', daughter of Umays. The Prophet (s.a.w.) received him with the whole of his preexistence. He carried him in his arms. He kissed him and pressed him to his chest. Then he said the call to prayer (adhan) in his right ear an recited the call to begin the prayer (iqamah) in his left ear. The first voice that embraced the newborn's hearing and entity was, thus, the voice of right.
    The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) turned to Imam Ali (a.s.) and asked him:
    "What name did you give my son?"
    "I wouldn't precede you in doing it," Imam Ali (a.s.) replied.
    "Nor would I precede my Lord," averred the Prophet (s.a.w.).
    No sooner did this short dialogue take place between the Messenger (s.a.w.) and his trustee, about the name of the new baby, than the Divine, Holy revelation came to the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) telling him that Allah, the Glorified, had named the baby, Hasan a.s .

  220. The Holy Prophet [s] said: "Man is influenced by the faith of his friends. Therefore, be careful of whom you associate with." Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 74, p. 192

  221. Azan will be recited loudly from Mosques. But their heart will be devoid of Imaan. Their faces will be of humans but their hearts will be like Satan's heart. Rasool (SW): A period will come for people wherein their faces will be of humans but hearts will be Satan's (Shaitaan's). They will be like jackals. If such people are followed and made friends with then they will lead you into error and will sow seed of distrust in your minds. If you  talk to them they will call you liar and if you do not share their thinking and viewpoint you will  be bitched about by them.

  222.  In this regard, the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a) has said 'The one who supplicates (prays) without action is like the archer who shoots without a bow' (Beharul Anwaar, vol. 93, p. 312)

  223. Besides Moslems, Bakris also believe that Faatimah was a human houri who was created from the produce of Heaven; and they narrate various ahaadeeth[49] in this regard from Rasoolollaah, one of which is what cAa’eshah narrates:((I frequently saw Rasoolollaah kiss Faatimah; so one day I said: O Rasoolollaah! I see you do something I had not seen you do before. [49] Plural of hadeeth: a narration from one of the Fourteen Macsoomeen.

  224. So he told me: O Homayraa’![50] Indeed, on the night during which I was taken to the sky, I entered Heaven and I stood by its most beautiful tree, with the whitest leaves, and the most delicious fruit. So I took from its fruit and ate… And when I descended to the earth, I approached Khadeejah; and she became pregnant with Faatimah from that produce.  [50] A name by which the Prophet sometimes called cAa’eshah. So whenever I yearn for the scent of Heaven, I smell the scent of Faatimah. O Homayraa’! Verily, Faatimah is not like the human women[51].)).  [51] Faraa’ed al-Semtayn / al-Hamoo’i = vol. 2, page 61.

  231. * Moslem scholars narrate: 

    ((When Hosayn ibn cAli [Imaam Hosayn] was killed, and the news that his head had been cut and carried to Yazeed ibn Mocaawiyah[127] reached Madinah… mourning ceremonies were held in the home of Rasoolollaah’s wife, Omm Salamah, and the homes of the Mohaajireen and the Ansaar.

    Suddenly, cAbdollaah ibn cOmar ibn al-Khattaab came out of his home, with his collar torn[128], slapping his face, and screaming: O crowd of Bani Haashim[129], and Qoraysh, and Mohaajireen and Ansaar! Is it assumed permissible to do this to the family and the lineage of Rasoolollaah while you are alive?! Yazeed must be dethroned.

    That night he left Madinah traveling towards Damascus, and in every city he called the people to rise against Yazeed. And reports of his activities were constantly sent to Yazeed.

    And the people listened to him and cursed Yazeed, saying: This is cAbdollaah son of cOmar, Rasoolollaah’s khaleefah, and he is denouncing what Yazeed has done to Ahl al-Bayt, and is calling the people against him; so whoever does not answer his call is not a Moslem. Thus a great unrest hit Damascus.

    Finally, he entered the capital and came to Yazeed’s castle with a large crowd…

    He was given permission to enter the castle alone, so he entered screaming at Yazeed: You have done what the Turks and the Romans would not have done; move aside so that the Moslems choose someone more suitable for this position.

    However, Yazeed received him politely, hugged him, and respected him greatly. Then he said: O Abaa Mohammad! [cAbdollaah] calm down…

    Did your father appoint my father as the Governor of Shaam[130], or did my father appoint your father as Rasoolollaah’s Khaleefah?

    cAbdollaah: My father appointed your father.

    Yazeed: O Abaa Mohammad! Do you accept your father and his advice to my father?

    cAbdollaah: Yes I accept.

    Then Yazeed held cAbdollaah’s hand, saying: Stand up O Abaa Mohammad! and read it (Omar’s advice to Mocaawiyah). So they walked into one of the safes where Yazeed asked for a specific box, opened it and took out a smaller box which was sealed and locked, he then took out a thin scroll wrapped in a black silk cloth and gave it to cAbdollaah, saying: O Abaa Mohammad! is this not your father’s hand writing?

    cAbdollaah: Yes, by Allaah; and he kissed it.

    Yazeed: Read.

    And cAbdollaah read it. [Only some excerpts of cOmar’s letter to Mocaawiyah are mentioned here):

    …So I swear by the Hobal and the Idols and the Laat and the cOzzaa[131] that cOmar never renounced them since he first worshiped them, and that he never worshiped the God of the Kacbah, and that he never believed Mohammad. And that he never saluted him accept for becoming powerful enough to work against him and suppress him, for he (Rasoolollaah) had indeed come to us with a great sorcery, and added to that of the Israelites with Moosaa, Haaroon, Daawood, Solaymaan and cEesaa; he brought us all of their sorcery and added to it so much that if they had seen him, they would have testified that he is the Master of the Sorcerers.

    So hold on O son of Abi Sofyaan! to the tradition of your people, and follow their religion, and continue the mission of your fathers in denouncing this structure (Kacbah) which they say has a God whom ordered them to come to it and circumambulate around it…

    And thank the Laat and the cOzzaa for the rule of the Wise Master cAteeq ibn cAbdolcozzaa [Aboo Bakr] on the nation of Mohammad, and his authority in their finances, bloods, faiths, souls, permissibles, prohibitions, taxes… so he would rule leniently in public and harshly in secret…

    And indeed, I made a magnificent leap on the shining star of Bani Haashim[132], and its luminous summit… the one named Haydarah[133], Mohammad’s son-in-law, husband of the woman they appointed as Sayyedat Nesaa’ al-cAAlameen, calling her Faatimah. I came to the home of cAli, Faatimah and their two sons Hasan and Hosayn, and their two daughters Zaynab and Omm Kolthoom, and their housemaid Feddah, along with Khaalid ibn al-Waleed, Qonfodh and a number of our most loyal men. So I knocked on the door very hard and the housemaid answered me. I told her: Tell cAli: Forget this nonsense and do not think about the khelaafah, for surely it is not yours; it is for whom has been chosen by the Moslems…

    Again I went to cAli’s home and told Feddah: Tell cAli to come out and pledge allegiance to Aboo Bakr. But she said: Indeed, Ameer al-Mo’meneen is busy. So I said: Tell him to come out, or we will come in and extract him by force.

    Then Faatimah came and stood behind the door, saying: O you straying liars! What are you saying? And what do you want?

    So I said: O Faatimah!

    Faatimah: What do you want O cOmar?

    I said: Why did your cousin send you to answer me and he chose to sit behind the cover?!

    Faatimah: Your tyranny O scoundrel! Brought me out.

    I said: Forget the women’s nonsense and myths and tell cAli to come out.

    Faatimah: Do you threaten me with the party of the Shaytaan[134] O cOmar?!…

    I said: If he does not come out, I will bring a lot of firewood and will burn down this house on whoever is inside; and I took the whip from Qonfodh and lashed her, and told Khaalid: You and the men gather the wood, for surely I am burning it down.

    Faatimah: O enemy of Allaah and the enemy of His Messenger and the enemy of Ameer al-Mo’meneen!

    She then put her hands on the door, trying to stop me from entering; so I lashed her hands with the whip which hurt her, and I heard her sighs and cries; and I nearly went soft and was about to return, but I remembered my despise of cAli and his passion for the blood of the stouthearted Arabs, and the cunning of Mohammad and his sorcery, so I kicked the door against her while she was behind it, and I heard her scream: O my father! This is what is done to your beloved daughter! Ah O Feddah! Hold me, for indeed, by Allaah, my fetus has been killed.

    I heard her go into labor, leaning on the wall, so I pushed the door and entered the house. She came towards me and I slapped her face so hard that her earring tore from her ear, and she fell down.

    Then cAli came, and when I sensed him I quickly went out and said to Khaalid and Qonfodh: I escaped from a great danger; indeed, I have committed a serious crime and I fear for my life. This is cAli coming out, and none of us can handle him.

    So cAli reached her just as she was about to pray to Allaah against us and complain of what had happened to her, so he spread a wrap on her, telling her: O Daughter of Rasoolollaah! indeed Allaah sent your father as a mercy to the creatures. I swear by Allaah, that if you uncovered your forehead and prayed to your Lord, He will most definitely destroy these people; as you and your father are dearer to Allaah than Nooh, for whom He drowned the people who were not on his ship… So be O Chief of the Women! a mercy to these inverted people, and do not be a punishment.

    Her pain then increased, and she entered her room and miscarried a dead fetus that was called Mohassin…

    So when cAbdollaah read the letter, he stood up and kissed Yazeed’s head, saying: Praise be to God O Ameer al-Mo’meneen! for your killing the enemy, son of the enemy!! I swear that my father did not tell me what he had told your father…[135])). [127] The fifth Usurper of the Khelaafah, and the third Amawi ruler.

  232. Hussain Ibn-e-Ali (A.S) was the dearest grandson of the Holy prophet Mohammed (P.B.U.H.P), who Mohammed (P.B.U.H.P) loved more than anybody. A famous incident took place before the death of Rasool-Allah. One day he came to his house and told Umme Salma(RA.A) that he is experiencing sickness and does not want to be disturbed. Umme Salma(RA.A) sat on the threshold, and the prophet went inside. People came to visit the prophet for discussion of daily affairs, but went back upon being informed of the prophet’s illness. A while later Imam Hussain (A.S), who was just five yrs old came near the house, when she told him to go back since his grandfather was not well and he will not meet anybody. As soon as Imam Hussain (A.S) turned back a voice came from inside “Umme Salma why have you asked my son to leave? Send Hussain in”. Umme Salma(RA.A) ran towards Hussain and asked her “ Hussain your grandfather is calling you” to which he replied “ Grandmother, but you just said that he does not wish to see anybody”, she begged and said “Hussain I didn’t know that you were different from everybody”. Imam Hussain (A.S) went inside and she closed the door. A moment later she heard the prophet crying bitterly inside, she opened the door, saw that Imam Hussain (A.S) was resting on his chest and asked the prophet, “ya Rasool-Allah what makes you cry so loud”, came the reply by the messenger “Umme Salma, I have been informed by Gabriel that this boy, my son will be brutally slain on the battle field of Karbala, for upholding the faith in Allah and my religion”.

  233. The Messenger of Allah said: "Let me write you something that will forever protect you against straying after me." Umar said: "The Prophet is in a state of delirium, and you have with you the Qur'an; so, the Book of Allah suffices us." Those who were present there argued among themselves, and their argument developed into a dispute. Some of them said: "Come close to the Prophet so that he may write you something that will safeguard you against straying after him," while others repeated what Umar had said. When the argument and dispute intensified in the presence of the Prophet, the Messenger of Allah said to them: "Get away from me." Ibn Abbas used to say: "The calamity, the real calamity, is what discouraged the Messenger of Allah from writing what he wished to write on account of their argument and dispute." (Al-Bukhari, Sahih, Vol. 4, p.4) They not only had the audacity to raise their voices above the voice of the Prophet, but with contempt, accused him of being delirious, even though the Qur’an says,
    “O, you who believe! Do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet, and do not speak loud to him as you speak loud to one another, let your deeds become null while you do not perceive.” (49.2)
    "Your companion does not err, nor does he go astray; Nor does he speak out of desire; It is naught but revelation that is revealed; The Lord of Mighty Power has taught him" (53:2-5).
