3rd Ramadan: The demise of the Queen of Paradise, Umm al-Momineen Fatima az-Zahra RadiAllahu Anha

Blessed be that symbol of honor; Pious Batool, our Prophetﷺ’s daughter,
Blessed be the veils of graces; Which from sun and moon hid their faces,
Blessed be our Prophet’s beloved daughter; Pious, pure and women’s leader.

Sayyidah Fatimah az-Zahra Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha was the fourth daughter of the Holy Prophet  and Sayyidah Khadija Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha. “Zahra” (having gleaming and luminous face), “Batool” (aloof from the worldly pleasures) are “Tahira” (chaste and modest) are among her exalted titles.

Umar bin Khattab (RadiAllahu Anhu) says that he went to the house of
Fatimah (RadiAllahu Anha) the daughter of the Messenger of Allah  and said,
“Oh Fatimah! I swear by Allah that I have not seen anyone
who is dearer to the Messenger of Allah  than you. I
swear by Allah that nobody is dearer to me than you after
your father .”

(Hakim, al-Mustadrak (3:168#4736), Ahmad bin Hambal, Fadai l-us-sahabah (1:364#532))

On the day of Judgement in the Court of Allah when the whole of humanity will be gathered. The Anbiya, Sahaba, Awliya & All the believers. Amongst them will be the greatest of all men, Women and the most modest of people. The pure Angels & Jinnaat will also be present. And in this situation what will happen when the Queen of Paradise will enter the Court?

The Messenger of Allah said, “On the Day of Judgment (when creation will be gathered), a Voice will call out, ‘All, lower your gaze, Fatima the daughter of Muhammed (SalamUllah Ala Abiha wa Alaiyha) is passing by.”
(Musnad Imam Ahmed)

Subhan Allah. What greatness. Only Allah and his Rasool  know the actual modesty & Purity of the Queen of Paradise, that even on the Day of Reckoning in the court of Allah no eye will be allowed to look at the purest of women.

Sayyidi Alahazrat عليه الرحمة says about the elevated status of Sayyida Fatima tuz Zahra RadiAllahuanha;

‘Noor bint e noor zawj e noor umm e noor o noor’
‘Light is She, the daughter of light, the wife of light, the mother of light and light’ 

She herself is Noor, her blessed father the Noble Messenger of Allah  is Noor, her husband Sayyiduna Ali Radi Allahuan is Noor, and her two sons Sayyiduna Imam Hasan and Sayyiduna Imam Hussain RadiAllahuanhuma are both Noor! 

Subhan Allah!!!


FROM AHADITH:

Sayyiduna Miswar bin Makhramah Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha reported that the Holy Prophet  said:

فاطمةبضعةمنى،فمنأغضبهاأغضبنى
“My daughter is part of me. He who disturbs her in fact disturbs me and he who offends her offends me.” [Sahih al-Bukhari, Hadith 3767]

The Holy Prophet  also said:

حسبكمننساءالعالمينأربعمريمبنتعمرانوآسيةامرأةفرعونوخديجةبنتخويلدوفاطمةبنتمحمد
“The best women in the entire world are four: The Virgin Mariyam Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha daughter of Imran and Aasiya Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha the wife of Pharaoh and Khadija Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha Mother of the Believers and Fatimah Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha, daughter of Muhammad SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam.” [Mustadrak al-Hakim, Vol. 4, Page 262, Hadith 4745, Musnad of Imaam Ahmad 2663]

Sayyidah Fatimah Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha thus acquired a place of love and esteem in the Beloved Nabi’s  heart that was only occupied by his wife Sayyidah Khadija Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha.  She was given the title of “Zahra” which means “The Resplendent One”. That was because of her beaming face, which seemed to radiate light.  She was also called “Batool” because of her purity and asceticism. She spent most of her time in the recitation of the Holy Quraan, performing Salaah and doing other acts of Ibadah.

Fatima AS

Sayyidah Ayesha Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha said:

أقبلتفاطمةتمشيكأنمشيتهامشيالنبيصلىاللهعليهوسلم،فقال: “مرحباًبابنتي“. ثمأجلسهاعنيمينه،أوعنشماله
“I have not seen any one of Allah’s SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala creation resemble the Messenger of Allah  more in speech, conversation and manner of sitting than Fatimah Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha. When the Holy Prophet  saw her approaching, he would welcome her, stand up and kiss her, take her by the hand and sit her down in the place where he was sitting.” [Imam Bukhari in al-Adab al-Mufrad, Page 406, Hadith 421]

No One
No One From The Sahaba Resembled Rasool’Allah ﷺ More Than Sayyida Fatimah رضي الله عنها
In Her Character She Was Like Rasool’Allah ﷺ
In Her Mannerism,
In Her Disposition,
Even The Way She رضي الله عنها Walked Was Like Rasool’Allah ﷺ
She Even Looked Like Rasool’Allah ﷺ.

Subhan Allah!

Fatima-AS

One day Sayyiduna Ali Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha asked her to go to her father and ask for a servant. Sayyidah Fatimah Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha came to the Holy Prophet ﷺ. The Holy Prophet  said:

ألاأخبركماهوخيرلكمنه،تسبحيناللهعندمنامكثلاثاوثلاثين،وتحمديناللهثلاثاوثلاثين،وتكبريناللهأربعاوثلاثين 
“Shall I not tell you of something better than that which you asked of me? I am telling you the words, which Jibra’eel Alaihis Salam has told me. You should say Subhan-Allah (Glory be to Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala) 33 times, Al-HamduLillah (Praise be to Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala) 33 times and Allahu Akbar (Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala is Great) 34 times.” [Sahih al-Bukhari, Hadith 5362]

This is called “Tasbeeh-e-Fatimah” and brings blessings upon the person who regularly recites it. 

Sayyidah Ayesha Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha reported:

كنأزواجالنبىصلىاللهعليهوسلمعندهلميغادرمنهنواحدةفأقبلتفاطمةتمشىماتخطئمشيتهامنمشيةرسولاللهصلىاللهعليهوسلمشيئافلمارآهارحببهافقال«مرحبابابنتى». ثمأجلسهاعنيمينهأوعنشمالهثمسارهافبكتبكاءشديدافلمارأىجزعهاسارهاالثانيةفضحكت. فقلتلهاخصكرسولاللهصلىاللهعليهوسلممنبيننسائهبالسرارثمأنتتبكينفلماقامرسولاللهصلىاللهعليهوسلمسألتهاماقاللكرسولاللهصلىاللهعليهوسلمقالتماكنتأفشىعلىرسولاللهصلىاللهعليهوسلمسره. قالتفلماتوفىرسولاللهصلىاللهعليهوسلمقلتعزمتعليكبمالىعليكمنالحقلماحدثتنىماقاللكرسولاللهصلىاللهعليهوسلمفقالتأماالآنفنعمأماحينسارنىفىالمرةالأولىفأخبرنى«أنجبريلكانيعارضهالقرآنفىكلسنةمرةأومرتينوإنهعارضهالآنمرتينوإنىلاأرىالأجلإلاقداقتربفاتقىاللهواصبرىفإنهنعمالسلفأنالك». قالتفبكيتبكائىالذىرأيتفلمارأىجزعىسارنىالثانيةفقال«يافاطمةأماترضىأنتكونىسيدةنساءالمؤمنينأوسيدةنساءهذهالأمة». قالتفضحكتضحكىالذىرأيت.
“We, the wives of Allah’s Apostle were with him (during his last illness) and none was absent therefrom that Fatimah Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha, who walked after the style of Allah’s Messenger , came there, and when he saw her he welcomed her saying: ‘You are welcome, my daughter’. He then made her sit on his right side or on his left side. Then he said something secretly to her and she swept bitterly and when he found her (plunged) in grief, he said to her something secretly for the second time and she laughed. I (Ayesha Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha) said to her: ‘Allah’s Messenger  has singled you amongst the women of the family for talking to you something secretly and you wept’. When Allah’s Messenger  recovered from illness, I said to her: ‘What did he say to you?’ Thereupon, she said: ‘I am not going to disclose the secret of Allah’s Messenger . When the Holy Prophet  passed away, I said to her: ‘I adjure you by the right that I have upon you that you should narrate to me what Allah’s Messenger  said to you.’ She said: ‘Yes, now I can do that. When he (Prophet ) talked to me secretly for the first time he informed me that Jibra’il Alaihis Salam was in the habit of reciting the Qur’an along with him once every year, but this year it had been twice and so he perceived his death quite near, so fear Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala and be patient (and he told me) that he would be a befitting forerunner for me and so I wept as you saw me. And when he saw me in grief he talked to me secretly for the second time and said: ‘Fatimah Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha, are you not pleased that you should be at the head of the believing women or the head of this Ummah?’  I laughed and it was that laughter which you saw.” [Sahih Muslim, Hadith 6467]

Sayyidah Ayesha Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha reported that when she asked Sayyidah Fatimah Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha the reasons of her crying and laughing when her father talked to her secretly, she said:

سارنيالنبيصلىاللهعليهوسلمفأخبرنيأنهيقبضفيوجعهالتيتوفيفيهفبكيتثمسارنيفأخبرنيأنيأولأهلبيتهأتبعهفضحكت
“He informed me secretly of his death and so I cried. He then informed me secretly that I would be the first amongst the members of his family to follow him, so I laughed.” [Sahih al-Bukhari, Hadith 3427 ; Sahih Muslim, Hadith 2450]

This Hadith shows the implicit faith that Sayyidah Fatimah Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha had in the words of her father. She believed that her father was given the Knowledge of Unseen. She was quite sure that the events would take the same turn as her father had informed her. This Hadith also shows that Sayyidah Fatimah Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha loved her father more dearly than her husband and children, and her meeting with him in the Hereafter was a source of great comfort and consolation for her.
