Hazrate Sayyida Fatima Zahra (R.A)

Hazrate Sayyida Fatima Zahra (R.A), the beloved daughter of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) is such a blessed personality that needs no introduction. We have tried to highlight some of her (R.A) qualities from her illustrious and pious life.

Hazrate Fatima (R.A) was given the glad tiding of being the leader of all the women in Paradise. She (R.A) was also given the titles of Zahra and Batool. Hazrate Fatima (R.A) is distinguished amongst the ladies of her age in regards to knowledge, piety, ancestry and excelled in feminine charms and human excellence.

From her childhood, Hazrate Fatima (R.A) was very calm, elegant and sensible. She did not enjoy going out and visiting people unnecessarily. She would keep herself distanced, spending time in the presence of her mother, Hazrate Khadija (R.A)

The marriage of Hazrate Sayyida Fatima (R.A) to Hazrat Ali (R.A) had taken place in the year 2 AH. It was a simple ceremony which took place with a lot of dignity.

The Beloved Prophet (S.A.W) ordered Hazrat Anas (R.A) to invite Hazrat Abu Bakr, Umar, Usman, Abdur-Rahman bin Auf and the other Ansaar and Muhaajireen (R.A's, and when all had gathered, delivered a Khutba, performed the Nikah (Marriage) and gave Hazrate Sayyida Fatima (R.A) the following items; a small blanket, a bed-stand, a quilt, a leather bag for water, two pulleys and two jugs made of clay.

Hazrat Haarith bin Numaan (R.A) there after presented Rasoolullah (S.A.W) with a house of his, for Hazrate Sayyida Fatima (R.A) and Hazrat Ali (R.A) to live in. When she entered her new home after marriage, Rasoolullah (S.A.W) visited her (R.A) after Isha Salah.

Holy Prophet (S.A.W) requested water in a dish, gargled His blessed mouth with it and sprinkled it on the shoulders and chest of Hazrat Ali (R.A) and Fatima (R.A) thereafter making the following Dua;

“O Allah (S.W.T)! I hand over Fatima, Ali and their children (R.A) in your protection. Indeed they are saved from the mischief of Shaitaan.” (Zarqaani)
