It is written in the book title: “Chehreh DiraKhshan Husain bn Ali (peace be upon him)”: A reputable scholar, promoter of the office of the pure and infallible holy household of the Prophet (peace be upon them), Hujjatul Islam wal Muslimeen Hajj Sayyid Murtada Mujtahidi Sistani transmitted as follow:

My honorable uncle, a trust reporter of Hadith, late Hajj Sayyid Ibrahim Mujtahidi Sistani (May Allah promote his rank) is one of the old praise reciter of the holy household of the Prophet; he is also a preacher and a watchman in Quds Radawi Shrine of Hadrat Ali bn Musa Rida (peace be upon him). This great late uncle had an important dream that the entire praise reciters and servicemen of the master of the martyrs (peace be upon him) need to take lesson from it. In the dream he was at the presence of Hadrat Sidiqah Fatimah Zahra (peace be upon her) while a register is opened. He inquired from Hadrat Zahra: what register is this?

Hadrat Zahra (peace be upon her) in answering the question said: the names of the praise reciters of my son Imam Husain (peace be upon him) are registered in the notebook.

He glanced at the notebook and saw a lot of praise reciters’ name registered in it and the exact remuneration for each an every one of them in the gathering of the holy two months of Muharam and Safar is also mentioned therein.
This late uncle also saw his name in this register and thirty Tuman is also registered behind his name!
He woke up from sleep while he is astonished of this dream, even though thirty Tuman then time is a reasonable amount for a gathering but as remuneration for two months gatherings, it is hard to be believed.
Fortunately that year it is just few days to the holy month of Muharam and he was seriously sick that he doesn’t have the ability to go out of the house; his sickness prevail till the end of the month of Muharam and Safar. In these two months he was not able to attend except a day when he was relief and after the gathering one envelop is given to him that consist thirty Tuman.

After then his dream became clear that how much Hadrat Zahra (peace be upon her) is dear to the gathering and the praise reciters! And how all the infallibles control the program of Hadrat Husain (peace be upon him).
In order to show clearly the importance of sincere praise reciting and the special concentration of Hadrat Zahra (peace be upon her) be attentive to the following narration:

Imam Sadiq (peace be upon him) says in a narration: no one shall weep for Imam Husain (peace be upon him) until his weep reach Hadrat Fatimah (peace be upon her) and she will assist him because of his weeping for Imam Husain (peace be upon him), she shall also take it to the holy Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his family) that he has fulfill our right in this respect Bihar al-Anwar volume: 25 page: 206

In another narration of Imam Sadiq (peace be upon him) concerning the importance of weeping for Imam Husain (peace be upon him) he said: …… verily Imam Husain (peace be upon him) sees who weep for him, he shall seek forgiveness for them and demand his fathers to seek forgiveness for him and shall say: O’ those who weep! If you know what Almighty Allah has prepared for you, you will be happier than your sorrow, surely He will forgive all your sins and mistakes Bihar al-Anwar volume: 27 page: 300

A drop of tear for the sorrow of the master of the martyrs cleans one hundred black letters; it is derived from the narration that Imam Husain (peace be upon him) is present in the gathering and whoever present in such gathering is in the presence of the master of the martyrs, meanwhile he should completely respect and observe the rites of the gathering.
Another important point is that those who weep for Imam Husain (peace be upon him) after the gathering must supplicate for the reappearance of the avenger of his blood likewise to seek from Almighty Allah to hasten the reappearance of the remaining proof of Allah (May our soul be sacrifice for him) in order to be part of the favor of the leader of the time (peace be upon him).
In one truthful dream the leader of the time (May our soul be sacrifice for him) said: Verily I pray for whoever supplicate for me after mentioning the calamity of the master of the martyrs in the mourning gathering. Mikyalil Makarim volume: 1 page: 334

Fatima az-Zahra (A) 
By Syed H. Akhtar

[Dr Syed H. Akhtar is a Physician and his specialty is Cardiology. He lives in Austin, Texas]

When writing about the greatness of a personality, one needs a gold standard with which to compare the strengths and weaknesses of that individual. However, if that person is herself the gold standard, then it makes it impossible to adequately describe her greatness. Hazrat Fatima az-Zahra (A) was such a personality.  Her merits are unmatched by any woman known in history and Allah (swt) Himself testifies in the Qur’an about her purity and piety. 
It is related that Imam Jafar As-Sadiq (A) said: “Fatima has nine names near (to) Allah swt, they are: Fatima,As-Siddiqa (the honest), Al-Mubarakah (the blessed one), At-Tahirah (virtuous), Az-Zakiyah (the chaste),Ar-Radhiyatul-Mardhiah (who is gratified and shall be satisfied), Al-Muhaddathah (the one to whom angels speak), and Az-Zahra (the splendid.)  
I will quote a few passages from the introduction of the Book titled “Fatima the gracious” by Abu Muhammad Ordoni, the Jordanian scholar: 
“Fatima is a female created by Allah (swt) to be a sign of His marvelous and unprecedented Might. For, the Almighty Lord created Muhammad (S) as a sign of His among the Prophets; and created from him a daughter, Fatima Zahra, to be a Sign of His ability to create a female possessing all moral excellence and talents. In fact, Allah the Almighty bestowed Fatima with a vast share of greatness and high level of majesty, which no other woman can ever claim to have reached.

She is one of the prominent people  close to Allah swt,   whose greatness was acknowledged by the Heaven before the creation of mankind; and in whose regard verses from the Qur’an that are (being read) and will be read day and night until the day of resurrection, were revealed.”

Fatima’s (A) genius is considered an example of a Muslim woman’s adherence to noble traits. She is a perfect example of how a daughter, a wife, and a mother should act while keeping her decency and pure character. She also shows us the Muslim women’s role in social fields within the limits of religion and virtue. Her life confirms that Islam does not deprive women of acquiring scientific, cultural and literary knowledge;” 

The merits of Hazrat Fatima (A) are many. Numerous verses in the Qur’an are revealed in her praise. Some of the well known verses in the Qur’an in praise of the Ahlul Bayt, including Fatima (A) are these: 
  1. Verse of Mubahila. Chapter 3: v.61
  2. Verse of Purity. Chapter 33: v.33
  3. Verse of Muwaddat. Chapter 42: v. 23
  4. Verses of Surah Ad-Dahr. Chapter 76

Traditions referring to the merits of Hazrat Fatima (A) 
In Tareekh Baghdadi it is related to Prophet (S) that he said: “The best of your men is Ali Ibn Abu Talib, and the best of your women is Fatima Binte Muhammad.” 
Prophet (S) also reported to have said: “Fatima is part of me, that which annoys her annoys me, and that which harms her harms me.” (Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, and Sahih Tirmidhi...) 
Fatima (A), the daughter:
            She loved and cared for her father and attended to him when he was ill or injured in one of the battles to defend Islam. After the death of her mother, Hazrat Khadija, she attended to the Prophet (S) even more often and consoled him during times of hardship, so much so that he called her "Ummi Abiha” which means "mother of her father."  
The Prophet (S) used to stand up to receive her when she visited him. It was clearly against the Arab custom for a father to stand up for his daughter. This shows the high spiritual status accorded to Fatima by Allah swt.  
It is related that Anas bin Malik’s mother said: “Fatima was like a moon on its full night, or the sun covered by no clouds. She was white (fair) with a touch of rose color on her face, her hair was black and she had the beautiful features of the Messenger of Allah (S).” (Mustadrak Al-Hakim)  
Qandozi reported that Hazrat Aisha said: “Whenever the Prophet (S) returned from a trip, he would kiss Fatima’s throat and say: ‘From her, I do smell the fragrance of Paradise.’”

Fatima (A), the wife. 
            Her home environment was an example of harmony, peace, tranquility, and modesty. She helped her husband in his worldly and religious affairs, and cooperated with him in achieving his exalted mission. 
It is written in Al-Bihar, on the authority of Manaqeb that Imam Ali (A) said: “By Allah, I never angered Fatima, or forced her to do something (she did not like, up to the day she died. nor  did she ever anger or disobey me. In fact, when I looked at her, depression and sadness would be removed (from my heart.) 
Al-Ayyashi in his Tafseer of the Qur’an reported that Imam Al-Baqir (A) said: Fatima vouched to take care of the household work, make dough, bake bread and clean the house; Ali in return vouched to take care of the outside work (such as) gathering firewood and bringing food stuff.”

Fatima (A), the mother:
            It is sufficient to say that Fatima (A) raised two boys, Hasan and Husain, the leaders of the youth of paradise who were the Purified and Infallible Imams. She raised two daughters; Zainab and Umme Kulthum.  The older one was Zainab (A) who carried on Imam Husain’s mission to the court of Yezid bin Mu’awiya and ensured its success.

Fatima (A), the teacher:
          Being brought up by the Prophet (S) of Allah (the City of knowledge) and in company of her husband(the gate to the city of knowledge) it is easy to understand why she was highly enlightened in the knowledge of the Qur’an and the Islamic Law.  
It is reported in Al-Bihar that a lady came to Hazrat Fatima with questions, and then repeatedly came with more questions. Then she felt embarrassed and said she did not want to inconvenience Fatima. At this Hazrat Fatima answered: 
“Ask me regarding any thing which comes to your mind ….”    “My reward for (answering) every inquiry is more than that which fills (the space) between the ground and the Throne (heaven) with pearls; thus, I should be more apt to answer your questions.”   
Quotes from Fatima (A).  
1.      It is attributed to Imam Sadiq (A) that he heard from his forefathers that Hazrat Fatima (A) had said that: “The man who is observing a Fast would not gain any thing when his tongue, ears, and limbs are not safe from sin.”
2.      “Allah fixed the reward for His obedience and torment for His disobedience so that He may restrain His servants from His Wrath and Fury and lead them to paradise.”
3.      “You the servants of Allah are the ones to maintain His injunctions and prohibitions, and carry His religion and His revelations, and are the trustees of Allah upon your souls, and propagators of His religion among other nations.”
4.      “The Book of Allah is the guide to its followers toward the pleasure of Allah. Listening to it (carefully) leads to the Salvation. The enlightened and conspicuous evidences and proofs of Allah can be obtained through it. … .”
5.      “Allah rendered alms for the purity of your souls and for flourishing and expansion of your sustenance.”
6.      “And (Allah made) kindness to the parents as a protection (shield) to His wrath and displeasure.”
7.      “And Allah made the vow performing (fulfilling of vows) as a medium for forgiveness.”

The quotes 2-7 are from “Fascinating discourses of the 14 Infallibles” by the Islamic Propagation Organization, translated by Javed Iqbal Qazilbash; Ansariyan Publications.
(http:://www.al-islam.org/masoom/sayings/fatema.html)   

In Conclusion:
Fatima (A) held a pivotal place in the family of the Prophet (S). She had the distinction of:  being the daughter of the most beloved Prophet (S) of Allah swt; the wife of the First Imam who was the purified one, and the only one to bear the title ofAmir-ul-Mu'mineen; the mother of two Imams who are the leaders of the youth of paradise. She is the one from whose progeny 11 Infallible Imams came. She herself was purified and infallible, granted divine knowledge, bestowed with wisdom, reasoning, intellect and Grace. The Tasbih formula that was a gift to her by Allah swt through His Prophet (S), the recitation of which is a source of forgiveness, mercy and reward for her followers. Allah has promised her the privilege of Intercession on the Day of Judgment, on behalf of those who love her, send salutations on her, and adhere to the teachings of the fourteen Infallibles. No woman comes close to her exalted status.

May we be among those who earn the intercession of Hazrat Fatima az-Zahra. A.S. Aameen.

Today is Monday, the 3rd of Jamadi al‑thani, the 11th year of the migration, the year of the death of her father. She kisses each one of the children. Hassan is 7, Husayn is 6, Zaynab, 5, and Umm Khulthum, 3.
And now is the moment to bid farewell to Ali. How difficult it is! And Ali must remain alone in the world for thirty more years. She sends for Umm Rafe'a to come. She had arranged the Prophet's funeral.
She says, 'Oh slave of God. Pour water on me so that I may wash myself. With patience and peace, she performs the ablution. Then she puts on the clothes which she had not worn since the death of her father and had put away. It is as if she had put aside the memory of her mourning and now is going to see a dear friend.
She says to Umm Rafe'a, 'Put my bed in the middle of the room.' Softly and quietly she steps into the bed. She faces the Kaaba and she waits. A moment passes, mo­ments...
Suddenly cries are heard within the house. She closes her lids and opens her eyes upon her beloved who was awaiting her.
A candle of fire and sorrow is extinguished in Ali's house.
And Ali remains alone, with his children.
She had asked Ali to bury her at night so that no one would recognize her grave and so that those two elders would not follow her corpse to the grave.
Ali did as she had asked. But no one knows how. And they still do not know where. In her home? Or in Baqiah'? It is not clear. And where in Baqiah? It is not clear. That which is clear is the pain of Ali, tonight, next to the grave of Fatima.
Medina is silent in the night. All Moslems are asleep. The night is only broken by the quiet whisperings of Ali. Ali is very much alone both in the city and in his home without the Prophet and without Fatima. Like a moun­tain of pain, he is sitting upon the earth of the grave of Fatima. Hours pass. Night, quiet and silent, listens to the pain of his whisperings. Baqiah is peaceful, fortunate. Me­dina is without loyalty and impoverished. All remains in silence. The awakened graves and sleeping city listens!
The wind of the night takes the words which flows with difficulty from the spirit of Ali at the side of Fatima's grave towards the house of the Prophet. 'To you from me and from your daughter, who fell down beside you and who in such haste joined you; Greetings, oh Pro­phet of God.'
'My patience and my ability have weakened from the fate of your dearest, oh Prophet of God. But how can I seek patience with such terrible misfortune and missing you?
'I placed you in the grave but you still exist in my heart. We are all from God and unto God we shall return. But my sorrow is eternal and my nights, sleepless until God takes me to the same home in which you are now.
'Right now, your daughter will tell you how your tribe joined each other against her and took away her rights. Insist that she tell you everything that happened. All these things happened even though not much time has passed since your death and people have not forgotten you.
`Greetings to both of you, greetings from a man who has neither anger nor sorrow.'
He remains silent for a moment. He suddenly senses the exhaustion of a whole lifetime. It is as if with every word which is pulled from the depths of his being, he gives up a part of his existence.
He is alone. He does not know what to do. Stay? Re­turn home? How can he leave Fatima here alone? How can he return alone to his home? The city looks like a devil in the darkness of the night. Schemes, treacheries and shame­lessness awaits him.
How can he stay? His children, the people, Truth, res­ponsibilities and a heavy mission await him. His pain is so heavy that it destroys his strong spirit. He cannot decide. Hesitation grips his soul. Go? Stay? He senses that he is unable to do either. He does not know what he will do. He explains to Fatima.
'If I leave you it is not that I do not want to stay near you and if I stay here have I not been unfair to the fate that God promises for those who bear patiently?'
Then he arose; stood, faced the Prophet's house, with a state which would overflow if poured into the word, feel­ings, he wants to tell him that he is returning that which had been entrusted to him. `Listen to what she says. Ask her to tell you everything precisely. Have her count all the things that she saw after you, one by one!'
I do not know what to say about her. How to say it? I wanted to imitate the French writer who was speaking one day in a conference about the Virgin Mary. He said, 'For 1700 years all of the speakers have spoken of Mary. For 1700 years, ail philosophers and thinkers of various nations of the East and West have spoken of the values of Mary. For 1700 years, the poets of the world have expressed all of their creative efforts and power in their praise of Mary. For 1700 years, all of the painters and artists have created wonderful works of art showing the visage and states of Mary. But the totality of all that has been said, thought and the efforts of all the artist throughout all of these many centuries were not able to sufficiently describe the greatness of Mary as these words, 'Mary was the mother of Jesus Christ'.'
And I wanted to begin in this manner with Fatima. I got stuck. I wished to say, 'Fatima is the daughter of the great Khadijah.' I sensed it is not Fatima. I wished to say, 'Fatima is the daughter of Muhammad (‘s).' I sensed it is not Fatima. I wished to say, 'Fatima is the wife of Ali (‘a).' I sensed it is not Fatima. I wished to say, 'Fa­tima is the mother of Hasan and Husayn.' I sensed it is not Fatima. I wished to say, 'Fatima is the mother of Zaynab.' I still sensed it is not Fatima.
No, these are all true and none of them are Fatima.
Fatima is Fatima
