To the builder of the Human Civilization, and the emitter of spirit and knowledge in generations,

To the Last of the Prophets, and the Master of messengers Muhammad (blessing and peace be on him);

I offer to his exalted standing this study on the highest woman Allah has ever created in the earth;

The part of the Prophet (a.s.), and the principal of the women of the worlds; Fatima az-Zahra’ (peace be on her), hoping that it will be accepted, and this is my expectation when I shall meet Allah the Almighty.

Quranic Verses

فَمَنْ حَاجَّكَ فِيهِ مِنْ بَعْدِ مَا جَاءَكَ مِنْ الْعِلْمِ فَقُلْ تَعَالَوْا نَدْعُ أَبْنَاءَنَا وَأَبْنَاءَكُمْ وَنِسَاءَنَا وَنِسَاءَكُمْ وَأَنْفُسَنَا وَأَنْفُسَكُمْ ثُمَّ نَبْتَهِلْ فَنَجْعَلْ لَعْنَةَ اللَّهِ عَلَى الْكَاذِبِينَ. (3/61 )

“Say: Come let us call our sons and your sons and our women and your women and our selves and your selves, then let us be earnest in prayer, and pray for the curse of Allah on the liars. (3:61)”

إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنْكُمْ الرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيرًا. (33/33 )

“Allah only desires to keep away the uncleanness from you, O people of the House, and to purify you a thorough purifying. (33:33)”

قُلْ لاَ أَسْأَلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ أَجْراً إِلاَّ الْمَوَدَّةَ فِي الْقُرْبَى. (42/23 )

“Say: I do not ask of you any reward for it but love for my near relatives. (42:23)”

Before Your Hands

O you the part of the messenger of Allah,

A fragrance from the soul of Muhammad,

The source of dignity in the world of Islam,

A flame from the light of Allah, and a flow from His mercy,

The mother of the two masters of the youth of Paradise,

The psalm of every noble lady from the daughters of Eve,

The light by which the confused are guided in the darkness of ignorance,

O you who rejected the pleasures of life, and lived for abstinence, virtuousness, and asceticism,

O my Lady, the aims of your father, the savior of humanity, lit in your soul, and his values shone inside you, and so you set out from the essence of the revelation and the mission into a great revolution against deviation that Muslims were afflicted with after the departure of your father to the better world.

You struggled stably and loftily to take them back to the path of the mission that your father had made to save the nation from deviation and from slipping into the abysses of this life. So you refuted suspicion, lit the way, and showed the clear proof, but people admired this life, were interested in its pleasures, and they insisted on erring and stubbornness.

My lady, these are glimpses from your high ideals, which are as a Legion of Honor to the Islamic nation, that I offer humbly and reverently to your high standing expecting from Allah the Almighty that I shall obtain your intercession that includes many many slack people like me!

The author

A word by the Verifier

Fatima (a.s.) is the highest woman in knowledge, purity, patience, and piety that history has ever known. She was brought up in the house of Revelation and grew in the lap of the greatest Prophet (a.s.), and thus she was the vessel of Imamate and the continuity of Prophethood.

She got married to Ameerul Mo'minin Ali bin Abi Talib (a.s.) and lived with him a life of simplicity and asceticism, and so she was an ideal example for Muslim women or, indeed, for all Muslims.

However, fate willed for her that she would not live after her father’s death but for a short time because of the oppression and harms she met from the people; though the Prophet (a.s.) had said about her, ‘Fatima is a part from me; whoever harms her harms me.’ But, people denied the truth, deviated from the path of the Mission, and turned him (Imam Ali) away from the position of Imamate.

The book before you, dear reader, is a study on the life of Infallible Fatima (a.s.), the daughter of Prophet Muhammad (a.s.). Our role in this book was the reviewing and verifying of its texts and sources. Praise be to Allah and Allah’s blessing be on Muhammad and his pure progeny.
