Lady Fatima is missed 💔

As-Salamu Alaykum dear readers,

My deepest condolences on the martyrdom anniversary of Lady Fatima (as). May she accept all our a'mal during these holy sacred nights. And my deepest condolences to you O'Master of Time, may Allah hasten your reappearance. May we live to see you show us the grave of your oppressed grandmother Lady Fatima (as).

Today's blog post will be about a narration where Imam Ali (as) speaks to Rasul Allah Mohammed (sawws). 

Imam Ali (as) has faced so many trials in his lifetime and is so oppressed. He saw his father Abu Talib (as) pass away, then his own nafs, Rasul Allah (sawws) martyred and later on his soulmate Lady Fatima (as) departed this world. His caliphate stolen off him, his loved one gone, his rights vanished, wars waged against him, and yet with all these trials, he remained patient. May we all strive to adopt his patience througout our lives. May Allah ease your heart O Prince of Believers.

In the name of the Lord of Fatima

بسم رب فاطمة

Ahmad ibn Mihran, may Allah grant him blessing, has narrated in a marfu' manner and Ahmad ibn Idris has narrated from Muhammad ibn 'Abd al-Jabbar al-Shaybani who has said that narrated to me al-Qasim ibn Muhammad al-Razi who has said that narrated to him Ali ibn Muhammad al-Hurmuzani from abu 'Abd Allah al-Husayn ibn Ali, Alayhi al-Salam, who has said the following:

"Abu 'Abd Allah al-Husayn ibn Ali, 'Alayhim al-Salam, has said, 'When Fatimah, Alayha al-Salam, passed away Amir al-Mu'minin Ali, 'Alayhi al Salam, buried her secretly, camouflaged her gravesite and then stood up facing the grave of the Messenger of Allah and said, 

"O Messenger of Allah, may Allah grant you blessings on my behalf and on behalf of your daughter who is visiting you and will pass this night in the soil of your location. Allah chose to make her join you the fastest. O Messenger of Allah, my patience has reached its limits and I miss so much your chosen one (daughter) and my self-control has vanished due to the departure of the leader of the ladies of the world. The only solace for me is to follow your tradition and be mournful for your own departure from us. A little while ago I placed you in your grave and your spirit left your body between my own throat and chest. Yes, in the book of Allah (for me) there is the best example for expressing acceptance of Allah's decision, "We are the servants of Allah and to Him we shall all return."

"The trust is returned, the commitment is recalled and al-Zahra' is taken away from us. How sad, O Messenger of Allah, the green skies and the dusty earth seem to us. My sadness has become perpetual and my nights have become sleepless. There is an anxiety that will not relieve my heart until Allah will choose for me a dwelling like that where you are. I have a heart bleeding, sorrowful, and a restlessess and anxiety. How quickly the separation took place. Before Allah I lament, and your own daughter will explain to you how your 'Umma (followers) succeeded in committing injustice against her. You may ask her questions and find information about the case from her. How great was her sorrow for which she could not find a place for expressing, but now she has found a place and an ear to express it to. 

She would say, 'Allah will judge because He is the best judge'. I offer my prayer to Allah to grant you blessings as a note of farewell, but not because of disappointment and desperation. If I return it is not because I have become tired and if I stand up it will not be because of pessimism toward the promise of Allah to those who exercise patience. Indeed to exercise patience is more safe and fruitful. Had I not feared the mischief of the enemies I would have liked to turn the place into a place of worship, to keep my worship continuous and to cry like the mothers for the death of their son, for the great loss. 

In the sight of Allah your daughter is buried secretly, her rights are taken away unjustly, her inheritance is withheld for no valid reason. It all happened just after you left and your memories are still fresh. To Allah, O Messenger of Allah, we lament and from you, O Messenger of Allah, we seek condolences. May Allah grant blessings to you and to her. May the peace and happiness from Allah be with you."
