The status of Janabe Zahra (s.a.) is beyond virtuosity

The entire universe belongs to Allah the Almighty. He does what He wishes to do. No one can curtail His Power or Authority. Importantly, Allah has appointed the Infallible Imams (a.s.) as the source of all His entire beneficence and blessings. On this premise, these Infallible Imams (a.s.) can possess anything in the universe. Therefore, our responsibility is that we acquire recognition of these honoured ones, who have been granted power and authority over the heavens and the earth by Allah.

fatimaBesides, if we wish to live a blissful life and stay on the straight path then it’s essential for us to differentiate between truth and falsehood. Hence, these honoured ones who mirror the truth — in whose happiness lies Allah’s happiness, in whose anger lies Allah’s anger, in whose obedience lies Allah’s obedience and in whose disobedience lies Allah’s disobedience — it is obligatory for us to gain their recognition which in the end will become the reason of our well-being.

The status of Janabe Zahra (s.a.) is beyond virtuosity

The position of Janabe Zahra (s.a.) is way higher than just being virtuous.

Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.s.) says:

‘Surely, Allah is happy when Fatemah is happy and angry when Fatemah is angry’

(Ref: Behar ul Anwaar vol 30, page 353; Mustadrak Haakim, vol 3, pg 154; Mo’ajam al Kabeer vol 22, page 401; Sahih Bukhari vol 5, page 83)

This tradition makes it clear that the status of Janabe Zahra (s.a.) is much superior to just being virtuous because chastity means that every action of a person— his contentment or discontentment, happiness and anger is as per Allah’s wish. He’s content in Allah’s pleasure and angry in Allah’s anger. His actions are a reflection of Allah’s wish. But, this isn’t the case with Janabe Zahra (s.a.) because here Allah is pleased with what Janabe Fatemah Zahra (s.a.) is pleased with and angered with what she is angered.

It’s impossible to get true recognition of (marefat) Janabe Zahra (s.a.)

Hazrat Fatimah Zahra (s.a.) and Surah al-Kauthar

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Hazrat Fatimah Zahra (S.A.) was born to Bibi Khadija (a.s.) and the Prophet (s.a.w.a.s.). Before her birth, the Prophet (s.a.w.a.s.) had had two sons, Qasim and Tahir, but both boys had died when they were babies. The Prophet (s.a.w.a.s.) had started teaching the message of Islam and had made many enemies. As a result, some of the unbelievers began to make fun of him at the death of his sons, calling him “Abtar”.

The word Abtar means an animal who has no tail – and was meant to say that the Prophet (s.a.w.a.s.) was tail-less because he had no children to carry on his family. Thus, when Bibi Fatimah (s.a.) was born, the following Sura of the Holy Qur’an was revealed: “In the Name of Allah, the most Kind, the most Merciful. Verily (O Muhammad), We have given you Kauthar. So pray to your Lord and give sacrifice. Verily, your enemies will be Abtar.”

Surah al-Kauthar, (108:1-3)

When the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.s.) was asked what Kauthar meant, he replied that it was a stream in heaven and the man who would give water from that stream to the believers was Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (a.s.). He then said that Kawthar also meant abundance, and the birth of Bibi Fatimah (s.a.) signified that, through her, his descendants would be in abundance.

The promise of Allah was certainly true because today, there are countless descendants of the Prophet (s.a.w.a.s.), (Sayyids) while there is nobody who claims to be a descendant of the Quraish. Thus the enemies of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.s.) were those who became truly “Abtar”.

This Surah in the Holy Qur’an is thus a reference to Janabe Fatimah (A).

Moral: You should never think that you have more than someone else, because there might come a time when that person has more than you. Remember it is through the blessing of Allah that you have what you have.
