 Includes NotesNotes for FATIMAH.AZZAHRA-2(RAh):
There have been many women who have made an everlasting mark on the history of civilization and humankind. They have been great in various aspects. Yet one woman contributed more than perhaps any other woman, while she was not more then a young girl. She had all the great and virtuous attributes of the women of respect and honor and more. Her prayers and supplications were no less than the most inspiring words of poetry to the God she adored. Her eloquence of speech, her bravery and strength, her loving tenderness towards her noble father, husband and children are what philosophers still write and speak of in terms of a cure for the ills of today's society. She was filled with spiritual devotion, as is becoming of any true saint. Her actions were her belief, without fault or mistake. She rose above the frail diversions of this life and was truly the best example for all women throughout all time.
This woman is Fatimah Az-Zahra the daughter of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw), the wife of Ali bin Abi Tholib the mother of Hassan and Hussein (peace be upon them all).
In the shade of her father the Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw), and in the lap of her chaste and noble mother, Khadija binti Khuwailid, Fatimah Az-Zahra was born in the holy city of Mecca on Friday 20th Jamadi Thani.
She had the spirit of the Holy Prophet, his characteristics and morals. Indeed, she was the complete inheritor of her father. The distinguished relationship between the Holy Prophet (saw) and his dear daughter attracted the attentions of those who lived nearby. They talked about the resemblance between the father and the daughter. The Holy Prophet, who spoke only that which had been revealed to him, addressed Fatimah (`a) in these words: Oh Fatimah! Allah, the Mighty, the Exalted, is angered at the one who makes you angry and is satisfied with the one who pleases you.
She was possessing of life, honour, beauty and high stature, living under her father's care. It was such a unique relationship that it made the Prophet's later wife Ayesha, marvel at it and proclaim: ? Never have I seen anyone more like the Messenger of Allah in his solemn way {of standing and sitting} than Fatimah (`a) she added, When she {Fatimah} (`a) came in the room to see him, he { The Holy Prophet} would rise to his feet, take her hand, kiss her and seat her where he was seated . And when he came to see her, she would stand up, take his hand, kiss him and seat him where she was seated. Nothing can be said more than that she was born and brought up in the household of the Holy Prophet (saw).
Fatimah (`a) was the greatest woman with regard to her honour, faith and position in the sight of her Creator. Sayyidatina Fatimah (`a) married `Ali (`a) and the tree of Prophethood bore fruit. Sayyidatina Fatimah (`a) gave birth to Hassan and then to Hussein, The Prophet welcomed them and named them. Fatimah the noblest of all women, married Imam `Ali(`a) for his faith, piety, trustworthiness and high principles, not for wealth, money and the fading luxuries of this world.
She accepted the holy bond with a simple modest mahr (dowry) that smashed the very values of materialism, abrogating its deceptive role in the subject of marriage, replacing it with Islamic values and ideals. Her marriage would no doubt teach the generations how elusive (false) is the nature of materialism and how it dwarfs before the sublime human values and ideals.
The glory of Az-Zahra towers over any other glory. Asceticism and worship of the Creator are two natural traits of the Holy Family of the Holy Prophet, for here were the finest examples of the highest ideals, the greatest Islamic personalities that had ever lived on this earth.
Fatimah (`a) did not live long after the death of her father (s). She was the first from among his family to join him in the afterlife. Fatimah Az-Zahra left this world with pain and grief, leaving both sons and daughters to be brought up by their father `Ali (`a)
