In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful


            Fatima is a female created by Allah to be a sign of His marvelous and unprecedented might.  For, The Almighty Lord created Muhammed (P.B.U.H.) as a sign of His might among prophets; and created from him his daughter Fatima Zahra (A.S.) to be a sign of His ability to create a female possessing all moral excellence and talents.  In fact, Allah Almighty bestowed Fatima with a vast share of greatness and a high level of majesty, which no other woman can ever claim to have reached.


            She is one of the prominent people close to Allah, whose greatness was acknowledged by Heaven before the creation of mankind; and in whose regard verses from the Quran, that are and will be read day and night until the Day of Resurrection, were revealed.


            Fatima is a Lady, who as mankind advances in the understanding and realization of facts and secrets, the greatness of her personality will become more apparent, and the deep meanings and characteristics of her actions will be more appreciated.


            She is Fatima Zahra (A.S.) whom Allah praises, and is “satisfied with her satisfaction, and is angered when she is angered.”  And the messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H.) commends her nobility and meritorious personality, while Imam Ali (A.S.) looks to her with respect and admiration and the holy Imams of Ahlul-Bayt sanctify and venerate her.


            In addition, Fatima Zahra’s life speaks of many of many events from which many morals and admonitions can be learned, and through which one can familiarize himself with the true believer’s life-styles and the viewpoints they held.  Also, a period of Islamic history that was connected to Fatima’s life can be reflected upon; this is despite her short life span and the fact that she was confined to her house where only her kin knew what went on with her.
