Az-Zahra (The Splendid One"
- :Abu-Muhammad Ordoni
Adopted from the book :"Fatima; the Gracious" by : Abu Muhammad Ordoni"
As it was reported in V.10 of Bihar Al-Anwar, Ibn Abbas narrated that Allah's Messenger said:
"Surely my daughter Fatima is:
The Mistress of all women from the beginning to the end.
She is part of me, and the light of my eyes,
She is the flower of my heart, and si my soul,
(Fatima) is a human huri, who whenever she stands in
prayers in the presence of Her Lord (Exalted in His Name),
her light illuminates the skies for the
angels, like stars shineto people on Earth."
This narration clarifies the reason for which Fatima (AS) was given the name Zahra. There are other narrations which mention that she had a bright and splendid face.
Lady Fatima (AS) had other titles and everyone of them reflected a virtue of noble trait which she enjoyed. Among those titles were: Al-Batoul, Al-Adhra (The Virgin), and Al-Hania (The Affectionate one to her children).
Fatima's favorite was, 'Um Abiha" meaning her father's mother.
