History of Aale Muhammad (pbuh) and Fatima Zahra (s.a.)
- :Qadi Bohlool Afandi
The holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) combated with the disbelievers of the Arabs and polytheists of the tribe of Quraysh for 23 years and after extraordinary difficulties and troubles had to migrate to Abyssinia. Finally, at the end of all these calamities, which were beyond the capacity of ordinary mortals, he had to bear separation from the near and dear ones and to leave their place of residence. Gradually, the true religion of Islam obtained influence and strength. The low Arabs became wealthy, prosperous and honourable. The idol-worshippers and the slaves of statues turned into the worshippers of ONLY ONE GOD, thanks to Islam.
The holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) had no attachment with anything. Only Fatima Zahra (s.a.), the leader of all women, was extremely dear to him. That is why it is essential that Fatima must be dearer than life for every professing believer because the holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) has said,
"Fatima is a part of me, whoever hurts her, hurts me." 5 Once one of the companions of the holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) asked Ayesha, 'Who, among all the creatures, is the dearest to the holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.)'? She replied, 'Fatima Zahra is the dearest for the holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.).' The questioner inquired again, 'Who among men is dearest to the holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.)? Ayesha responded, 'Ali (a.s.)'. There are so many traditions and narrations praising and honoring Fatima Zahra (a.s.) that if only one example from each one of them is included here, this volume will not suffice. But, since it is our intention to explain and examine the event of Fadak, we will express our view regarding this bitter and retrograde happening.
