Commemorating the Tragic Martyrdom of Hadrat Fatimah al-Zahra (A.S.)

Commemorating the Tragic Martyrdom of Hadrat Fatimah al-Zahra (A.S.)

Each year the Imamiyyah Shiites commemorate two historic-religious events: the tragedy of Ashura, martyrdom of Imam Hussain (A.S.) and the tragic martyrdom of Hadrat Fatimah al-Zahra (A.S.). Indeed, it is our duty to put forth effort in keeping the memory of these events alive.

Fatima Zahra (A.S.): Jewel in the Crown of Womanhood

Dignified Status of Woman     Islamic law bestows upon woman the right of inheritance and the right of possessing and disposing of her property, when other communities of the world deprived her of her basic human rights.  Islam placed the eternal reward of Paradise under the feet of woman, in her capacity as mother.

Mushaf of Hazrat Fatima Zahra (S.A.)

Mushaf of Hazrat Fatima Zahra (S.A.)

What is Fatima’s Mushaf? Fatima (ع) has left us a book behind her which is not a Qur’an but speech of the Almighty revealed to her, dictated by the Messenger of Allah (ص) and written down by Ali (ع), according to p. 41, Vol. 26 of Bihar al-Anwar. This is why she is named “Fatima”: the one who manifests the speech of the Fatir (Creator) of the heavens and earth.

What are the different dimensions of Lady Fatimah’s (SA) character?

What are the different dimensions of Lady Fatimah’s (SA) character?

The dimensions of Lady Fatimah’s (as) character are very vast and can only be understood through deep and profound thought and study. Reading and researching about her spirituality, knowledge and political struggles and the other aspects of her life, will help us in reaching our goal. According to both Shia and Sunni sources, some of her characteristics are as follows: 1- Her contentment to a simple life of small wealth and few facilities, while being able to have the best life possible. 2- Her donation and giving of things that she herself was fond of and liked. 3- Frequent worship and supplication at the peak of pureness in intention. 4- Her modesty and humility. 5- A role model in Islamic hijab and covering. 6- Her vast knowledge; a small example of it being her knowing all of the contents of the “Mus-haf Fatimah”. 7- Her political and social struggles and efforts in defending Imam Ali’s (as) successorship to the Prophet (pbuh) after his demise.

“What Allah gave to His Prophet from them (and), you did not spur any horse for its sake (acquisition), nor any riding camel; but Allah makes His prophets prevail over whomever He wishes, and Allah has power over all things.”

Smoke and the winds bear the brunt; Whose house it is that is burnt ذ? Flames rise towards the sky. And rises there in a shrill cry.
