Muslims of all schools recognize the exalted status of Hadhrat Fatima Zahra alayhis ‘salam, the daughter of Prophet Muhammad Salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa Sallam. She held a central place in the family ofthe Prophet and played a pivotal role in the establishment of Islam. This is evident fromthe famous Hadith-e-Kisa, when Angel Gabriel alayhis ‘salam asked Allah as to who were the souls under the blanket that earned such high praises of the Lord. The answer was, “They are the people of the house of prophecy and treasurers of My Messengership, and they are Fatima, her father, her husband, and her sons.” It is to be noted that the only name mentioned was that of Fatima alayhimus ‘salam

The Prophet Salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa Sallam loved Fatima alayhimus ‘salam not only because she was his daughter, but also because of her high spiritual status and her nearness to Allah.

Presented here are some traditions regarding Hadhrat Fatima alayhimus ‘salam

Miswar ibn Makhramah Radi Allahu anhu reported Allah’s messenger (S.A.A.W.) as saying: “Fatima is part of me. He in fact tortures me who tortures her.” (Sahih Muslim Vol. IV, Chapter MVII, Merits of Fatima)

“Fatima is the chief of the women of Paradise.” (Sahih-Al-Bukhari Vol. V, chapter 29, TheMerits of Fatima)

Anas ibn Malik’s Radi Allahu anhu mother is reported to have said:

“Fatima was like a moon on its full night or the sun covered with no clouds. She was white with a touch of rose color on her face, her hair was black, and she had the beautiful features of the Messenger of Allah.” (Mustadrak al-Hakim: v.3, p.161.)

It is reported that ‘Aisha alayhimus ‘salam said:

_ “I have not seen a person more similar to the Prophet’s appearance, conduct, guidance, and speech, whether sitting or standing, than Fatima. When she enters, the Messenger of Allah stands up, kisses and welcomes her, then takes her hand and asks her to sit in his place.” (Tirmadhi and Ibn Abdurabbeh in Eqd al-Farid: v.2, p.3.)

Ali alayhis ‘salam is reported to have heard the Prophet Salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa Sallam say this to Fatima alayhimus ‘salam:
