Fatima’s (s.a.) Defense
- :Dr. Ali Ghaemi
She made a speech and invited the people to Allah, praised the Peophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) and his prophetic mission, spoke about the materialism and Zakat, etc. Then, she listened to whatever Abubakr said.
Abubakr expressed an unauthentic Hadith, which meant, “the prophets do not leave any Dirham and Dinar ( Arabic units of money) as heritage”, therefore, “you have no right of your father’s heritage.” She replied, “but Fadak was not the Prophet’s heritage, it was a gift, dedicated by the Prophet (peace be upon him and his descendants) during his life time to me”. Then, she stated, “O heavens! According to the holy Quran, do you inherit your father but I don’t? It is a new speech. You have disregarded Allah’s holy book and resorted to a word, contradictory to the holy Quran. The holy Quran says,
Has this verse been negated by other versus? Are you more familiar with holy Koran than my father and my cousin (Ali)?
The holy Quran says,
The share of heritage for boys is two times more than girls.
It also says,
And Davood inherited Soleiman.
It says somewhere else,
Zakaria prayed to Allah to beget a child in order to inherit his parents and relatives.”
It also says,
If the dead leaves anything as heritage, it belongs to his parents and family.
Abubakr was astonished and gave up as if he has not heard such verses.
