IN THE NAME OF GOD
Condolence on all the Muslims of the World on the occasion of martyrdom of Hazrat Fatemeh Zahra (peace be upon her)
Sacred being of Hazrat Fatemeh Zahra (peace be upon her) serves as a treasury of numerous attainment some of which have been counted by Almighty God in the verses of holy Koran. Believing in the verses to the extent of virtue and prestige of Hazrat Fatemeh (p.b.u.h.) is not limited to the Shiite, but the Sunni brothers and knowledgeable men have confirmed the same claim many times.
For example, the great Sunni interpreter, Fakhre Razi interprets sura: Kosar and writes: Kosar means the children of prophet (p.b.u.h.), because this sura came in reply to those who were considering it as a fault that prophet had no child. Kosar means that Almighty God consoles holy prophet promising him that his generation shall continue throughout the time. Look! How many of the relatives of prophet were killed innocently while still the world is filled with them, but none has remained of the children of Omayeh. So, look! How great men of thought and connoisseurs have risen like, Imam Bagher, Imam Sadegh, Imam Kazem, Imam Reza (p.b.u.h.) out of descendents of holy prophet.1
From the verses on prestige and rank of Hazrat Zahra (p.b.u.h.) and his honorable husband, Amir Almomenin Ali (p.b.u.h.) and their children, Imam Hassan and Imam Hossein (p.b.u.h.). verses: 8 & 9, sura: Ensan (Dahr), verse: 61, sura: Ale Emran (verse: Mobaleheh), verse: 33, sura: Ahzab (verse: Tathir), verse: 23 sura: Shora, verse: 37, Sura: Baghareh might be mentioned, confirmed by both parties of the Shiite and Sunni.
The virtues of Hazrat Sedigheh Kobra (p.b.u.h.) mentioned by holy prophet (p.b.u.h.), not just because Fatemeh was his daughter- because if it was true, prophet had to mention the same things about his other daughters, Zeynab, Ome Kolsoom, or even his sons Ghasem, Abdollah, Ibrahim, but, he did not do it. But, he did it only for deservedness and high and unique rank of Fatemeh (p.b.u.h.) with Almighty God which made the prophet mention a part of high rank of that lady, not only on his behalf, but on behalf of Almighty God; because the tongue of prophet is the tongue of inspiration and Koran. As interpreted by Koran, he will never speak through his self wish. His speeches are nothing but inspirations of God. (Sura: Najm, verse: 3 & 4)
It is worthy to mention some narrations confirmed both by Shiite and Sunni, out of the resources of Sunnis.
Ahmand ibn Hanbal, the religious leader of Hanbali party narrates in his deeds that prophet told to Ali (p.b.u.h.), Fatemeh (p.b.u.h.), Hassan (p.b.u.h.), Hossein (p.b.u.h.) and prescribed: “ I fight with whomever is fighting with you and I am in peace with whomever is in peace with you. 2
Bokhari, the famous narrator of Sunni, narrates from the prophet: Fatemeh is a piece of my body. Whomever makes her furious, has made me furious.3
The governor of Neishabour and a group of other Sunni men of thought, narrate a very important and strange event from prophet of God when he prescribed: “ Fatemeh! Indeed, God shall be furious if you are angry and is agreed, if you agree.4
The narrations mean that bothering Fatemeh (p.b.u.h.) serves as bothering prophet himself and making her angry serves as making prophet angry, because Fatemeh is a piece of body of prophet and since bothering prophet of God serves as bothering God, so, if Fatemeh is furious, God shall be furious and if she is satisfied, God is satisfied and we shall request God to forgive us if prophet of God is annoyed. Because God prescribes in holy Koran: those who annoy God and His prophet, shall be cursed by God in the world and in the aftermath and they shall lose God’s grace and God shall impose on them miseries. (sura: Ahzab, verse: 57)
Holy prophet (p.b.u.h.) prescribes: On the day of pandemonium preacher calls: “Oh! You who enter the bedlam, close your eyes and keep down your heads, because Fatemeh (p.b.u.h.) daughter of Mohammad is going to pass the bridge.5
It has also been quoted: “The first person who shall enter the paradise, is Fatemeh daughter of Mohammad (p.b.u.h.)6.
My daughter, Fatemeh (p.b.u.h.) accompanied by her children and Shiite shall enter the paradise and considering them, God prescribes:the fear and panic of pandemonium never makes them sad and they shall enjoy eternally the graces. Oath to God! She is Fatemeh, her children and the Shiite. 7
Indeed! Descendants of Fatemeh Zahra (p.b.u.h.) i.e. the pure elatives of prophet and the pure Shiite who follow that sacred path and her children are all possessing a high rank. Not everybody who can be attributed to the generation of Fatemeh, but his morals and deeds are against her, nor one who thinks that he is Shiite but in practice he does not follow the path of the family of prophet.
Prophet (p.b.u.h.) prescribes: She was named: FATEMEH, because God has kept her and her children and her friends away from the fire. 8
This is the grace of God which He grants to everyone He wishes and God holds the endless and wide grace and is aware of the status of all the people who deserve it. (sura: Maedeh, verse: 54)
