Fatimah's Problems at Home
- :Abu-Muhammad Ordoni
Adopted from the book :"Fatima; the Gracious" by : Abu Muhammad Ordoni"
One of the problems which disturbed Fatima, was that some of her father's wives envious and jealous of her. Certain wives of the prophet (P.B.U.H) developed psychological complications against Fatima, because of the special treatment of the Prophet bestowed upon her and great love and kindness that he favored her with.
Al-Majlisi (May Allah bless upon his soul) narrated in Bihar that Imam Sadiq (A.S) said:
"The Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H) entered his house to find Aisha yelling at Fatima, saying:
'By Allah, O khadija's daughter, you feel that your mother was better than us; but what favour does she have above us?Is she not saved like us?'
The Prophet heard Aisha's shouting. When Fatima saw him, she began to cry; the Prophet then said:
'What makes you cry, O daughter of Muhammad?'
Fatima said: 'Aisha degraded my mother, and this has caused me to cry.'
The Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H) angrily said:, 'Hush, O Humaira (reddish woman)!! surely Allah (Exalted is His Name) blessed this devoted and fertile woman; and Khadija (may Allah bless her soul) gave birth to my children, Al-Tahir (Abudllah) who was purified, Al-Qasim, Ruqia, Um-Kulthum, and Zainab; but Allah has created you with a sterile womb so you do not give birth to any children."
Many other unappreciated utterances were made by Aisha against Fatima Zahra (A.S); which reflects the deep inborn deviation from which from which Aisha suffered, was not observed in any other of the Prophet's wives.
This narration clearly states that khadija's daughters were all the Prophet's direct daughters and not step-daughters. There are also may other proofs which pertain to this fact;but we will deal with them in another book, for this is not the Place for such a study.F
