Lady Fatima Zahra (a.s.) on the Last Day
- :Abu-Muhammad Ordoni
Adopted from the book : "Fatima; the Gracious" by : Abu Muhammad Ordoni"
On the Day when the oppressed shall bite their hands (in fear); when the oppressors shall be gathered in humiliation and lowliness, remembering their disgraceful and shameful deeds:
Then everyone of them shall review his file which is packed with oppression against his chosen worshippers. On that Day shall every human, whatever color, creed, faith, and his deeds may be shall be gathered ... no one will left behind ... even the fetus who was the victim of abortion shall come that Day to represent his case ... .
Then the great personality of Lady Zahra (AS) shall become manifest to every soul ... .
Following are several narrations reported by Ahlul-Bayt (AS) regarding Fatima (AS) on the Last Day:
1. Hakim reported in Al-Mustadrak V.2, P.153, that Ali (AS) said:
"I heard the prophet (P.B.U.H) say:
'On the Day of Rising, a caller shall announce from beyond the veil:" O gathered people, lower your eyes so that Fatima, the Daughter of Muhammad, may pass."'"
This narration has also been reported by:
Ibn Al-Athir has also been reported by:
Ganji Shafiee in Kifayat. At-Talib P.212;
Dhahabi in Mizan Al-Etdal V.2, P.18; and by Hamwini in Yanabi 'Al-Mawaddah P.104, who added the following to it:
Ali (AS) reported that the Prophet (P.B.U.H) said:
"On the Day of Rising a caller shall call from the sole of the Throne:
'O people of Resurrection, cast your eyes down, so that Fatima Bint Muhammad may pass while holding Al-Hussain's shirt, which will (still) be saturated with blood.' She will then embrace the leg of the Throne and say:
'O Allah, You are the Omnipotent and Just, pass the judgement between me and those who killed my son," (The prophet P.B.U.H added): "Then He shall judge according to my Sunnah, by the Lord of Kaaba, Fatima will then say:
'O Allah grant me intercedence for everyone who cried for his disaster; Allah will then grant her incidence for them."
2. Abu No'eum in Dala'el Al-Nobowwah, Ibn Hijr in Al-Sawa'eq Al-Mohreqah, and others have reported that Abu Ayoub Ansari said:
"The Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H) said: 'A caller shall call from the sole of the Throne: O gathered people, lower your heads and cast your eyes down so that Fatima Bint Muhammad may pass on the thousand Huri Al-Een, as if they were a flashing light."
3. Many Sunni Scholars have reported that Allah's Messenger stated that Lady Fatima Zahra shall arrive at the gathering place (while) riding Adhba' or Qaswa female camel.
4. Jaber Ibn Abdullah Ansari said:
"I said to Abu Jafar (Al-Baqer AS); 'May I be your sacrifice son of Allah's Messenger, narrate to me a hadith in regard to the noble traits of your grandmother Fatima, so that, if I report it to your shiites (followers), they would rejoice at (hearing) it!'
Abu Jafar (AS) said: 'My father told me that my grandfather reported that Allah's Messenger (P.B.U.H) said:
"On the Day of Rising, Minbars of light shall be erected for the prophets and messengers, of which my Minbars shall be the highest among all Minbars on that day. Allah will then say: 'Deliver a speech, ' so I will deliver a speech that none of the prophets or messengers have ever heard. Then for the successors (of prophets) shall be erected Minbars of light, and in the middle of these Minbars one shall be erected for my successors, Ali Ibn Abu Talib, which will be higher than all their Minbars. Allah will then say:
'Ali, deliver a speech.' So he will deliver a speech like no successor has ever heard before. Then for the children of the prophets and messengers shall be erected Minbars of light for my two sons, grandsons and the two flowers of my life (Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain). Then it shall be said to them: "Deliver speeches."So they will deliver two speeches like none of the children of the prophets and messengers have ever heard before.!
A caller-Gabriel-shall then call:
"Where is Fatima Bint Muhammad?'
She (AS) will rise ... ." (until he said):
"Allah, blessed and exalted is His name, shall say:
O people of the gathering; to whom does honor belong toady? '
So Muhammad, Ali, Hassan and Al-Hussain (AS) will say:
To Allah, The one, The Almighty'.
Allah the Exalted will say:
O people of the gathering: lower your heads and cast your eyes down, for this is Fatima proceeding towards Paradise.' Gabriel shall then bring her a female camel from the female camels of Paradise; its sides shall be embellished, its muzzle with fresh pearls, and it shall have a saddle of coral. It shall kneel down in her presence; so she will ride it. Allah will send 100,000 angels to accompany her on her right side, and 100,000 angels to accompany he on her left side, and 100,000 angels to lift her onto their wings until they bright her to the gate of Paradise. When she is near the gate of Paradise, she will look to her side. Allah will then say:
"Daughter of My beloved, why did you look to your side after I gave the command that you enter my Paradise?'
She will say: "My Lord, I wished that my position would be realized on such a Day!"
Allah will say:
Daughter of MY beloved.
Go back and look for everyone in whose heart was love for you or for any of your progeny; take their hand and lead them into paradise!"
Abu Jafar (AS) said: "By Allah, Jabir, she will pick her Saiites (followers) and those who love her just like a bird picks good seeds from bad seeds. So that when her shiites are near the gate of Paradise, Allah will inspire their hearts to look to their sides; when they do, Allah, The Almighty, will say:
'My beloved ones, why did you look around when Fatima, the daughter of my beloved one, interceded for you?'
They will answer; 'Our Lord! We hoped that or position would be known on such a day!'
Allah will then say: 'My beloved ones, go back and look for
everyone who loved love for Fatima;
Look for everyone who fed you for the love of Fatima;
Look for everyone who clothed you for the love of Fatima;
Look for everyone who gave you a drink for the love of Fatima;
Look for everyone who prevented (Gheeba) backbiting form being
done against you for the love of Fatima ...
Take their hands and lead them unto Paradise ...'"
5. Ibn Abbas said: "I heard Amir Al-Mo'mineen, Ali (AS) say:
Once the Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H) entered the house of Fatima and found her in a sad mood. So he is said: 'What has made you sad daughter?'
Fatima replied: 'Father, I remember the gathering (Day), and people standing naked on the Day of Resurrection!'
He said: 'Daughter, surely it will be a great Day. But Gabriel informed me that Allah, Glorified and Exalted is He, said that the first one upon whom the ground shall be split opened is me, then your husband, Ali Ibn Abu Tab, (AS); then Allah shall send Gabriel accompanied by seventy thousand angels and he will send Gabriel grave domes of light, after which Israfil will bring you three garments of light and stand by your head and say to you:
'O Fatima Bint Muhammad,rise towards your gathering place.'
You (Fatima) shall then rise secure from fear and veiled (in privacy). Israfil will hand you the garments and you will wear them. Rafael will then bring you a female camel of light; its muzzle shall be made of fresh pearls and on it shall be a howdan of gold. You will ride it and Rafael shall lead by its muzzle while seventy thousand angels holding the banners of glorification accompany you.
When the caravan hurries with you, seventy thousand Huris shall receive you rejoicing at seeing you; while everyone of them will be holding a censer of light from which the fragrance of incense is spread fire. They shall be wearing crowns of jewels embellished with green chrysolites."'
6. Bihar V.10, on the authority of Amali Sadouq reports that Imam Baqir (AS) said:
"I heard Jabir Ibn Abdullah Ansari say: 'Allah's Messenger said (On the Day of Rising, My daughter, Fatima, shall arrive riding a female camel from among the camels of Paradise to her right shall be seventy thousand angels and to her left shall also be seventy thousand angels, Gabriel will be holding its muzzle and calling with the loudest of voice: 'Cast down your eyes so that Fatima Bint Muhammad may pass!'
Then shall no prophet, messenger, truthful one, or martyr remain without casting their eyes down until Fatima passes. .Then a call shall come from the side of Allah, the Exalted:
My beloved one and the daughter of my beloved one; ask Us and you shall be given (whatever you wish), and intercede, your intercedence shall be accepted. By my honor and Exaltation, the oppression of no oppressor shall pass My (judgement) today.
She (Fatima) will then say:
'O Allah, My Master;
My progeny, My shiites (followers), the Shiites of my progeny, those who love me and those who love my progeny.'
She will then hear a call from Allah's side, may His Name be Exalted: "Where are Fatima's progeny, her shiites, those who love her, and those who love her progeny?" They will then come forward, surrounded by angels of mercy, and Fatima will lead them into Paradise.
