Fatima (a.s), the Islam’s Martyr
- :Dr. Ali Ghaemi
With no shadow of doubt, Fatima (peace be upon her) the first martyr of Islam after the Prophet’s demise. She sacrified herself to the way of Allah and religion. As Imam Sadeq (a.s) stated, “She received severe blows on her body for the defense of Ali (peace be upon him) i.e. the model of the holy Quran and the incarnation of Islam, and died when she was young.”
Her right was usurped, her side was broken, and she was banned from her heritage. Her husband was an oppressed, too; her children were martyred in the way of Allah….
The Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) stated, “there is nothing more valuable than two drops for Allah: the drop of tear, shed because of the fear of Allah, and the drop of blood, shed in the way of Allah.”
Fatima (peace be upon her) has got these two valuable drops. After the Prophet’s demise, in about three months, she passed away, and it is said that she was not more than 1400 years old.
