The major guardianship (wilayat-i kubra) of Fatima al-Zahra (p.b.u.h) is, in fact, the continuation of the absolute guradianship of Allah; that is, by Allah's permission she can dominate the world's state of affairs discernign the potential souls (nufus musta'ed) and therefore leading them to the ultimate goal, happiness. there are some revealed verses which demonstrate the infallibility and God-given esoteric knowledge ('ilm ladonni wa wahabi) for her of for the households of the Prophet (Ahla l -bayt) as a whole.

There are also traditions that are specifically or generally narrated about Fatima al-Zahra (p.b.u.h) from amongst forty essential element (rukn) in the world of creation.

Fatima (p.b.u.h) inthe Qur'an: A Review of the Eminece of Fatima in the Qur'anic Verse, Mubahela, from the Perspective of the Sunni Scholars
Mohammad Ya'qoob Bashavi

The Qur'anic verse, Mubahela, is a testimony to the sincerity and infallibility of 'Ali, Fatima, Hassan ad Hossein, whom the Prophet Mohammad chose to take with him when Christians called for "mutual invocation of a curse" (e.g. "may God's curse over the one who is wron, who is lies"). Most Sunni scholars confirm the fact of the selection of 'Ali's family, from the Muslim community of those days, fro the event. Various pieces of hadith on the event of "mubahela" (mutual cursing) have been passed on to us by 37 of great religious scholars in 51 ways. Some Sunni scholars have cast doubts on this matter but their doubt are of no scientific basis.
