OH! YOU PEOPLE OF REFLECTION. WILL I BE USURPED THE INHERITANCE OF MY FATHER?

WHILE YOU HEAR AND SEE ME?

WHILE YOU ARE SITTING AND GATHERED AROUND ME?

YOU HEAR MY CALL!

AND ARE INCLUDED IN THE NEWS OF THIS AFFAIR?

BUT YOU ARE NUMEROUS AND WELL EQUIPPED! YOU HAVE THE MEANS AND THE POWER, AND THE WEAPONS AND THE SHIELDS.

YET, THE CALL REACHES YOU! BUT YOU DO NOT ANSWER! THE CRY COMES TO YOU! BUT YOU DO NOT COME TO HELP!?

is she (ra) calling people to arms?

No, Lady Fatima [sa] is not calling people to arms rather she is saying to the people that you who see what is happening still sit there and do nothing to change this. When she states that they are numerous and well equipped it was not for taking up arms rather she is saying to the people that they should stand up and protest to this decision of the Caliph as a protest against the decision by a majority of the people would have seriously put Abu Bakr and the rest who supported his decision into an uncomfortable position. Imagine out of the 33,000 you stated that gave Bay'at, if 20,000 stood up and protested this decision then it could have lead to a total change in the rulership as people could have stated that Abu Bakr is incompetent to rule given his error about Fadak.

If she was really calling for arms then why did she not present her husband with the sword to lead the way?

    • Jazakallah khair. Thank you so much for telling me to read the Quran. I read the Quran to sleep and made dua to be in the right way and alhamdulilah I was blessed with a dream of the prophet telling me I am on the right path of shia. Jazak Allah khair!
    • Thank You so much. Alhamdulilah. I have been guided. Jazak Allah khair. I am shia and proud
    • As per my aql the punishment (qital) is not ok. I am a simple man. I find reasons in every thing. I have reason to believe in existence of God and not because my parents are Muslims. I have reason to believe on Muhammad S.A.W and Prophets A.S before that. I have reason to have what ever  belief i have. 
      What i am trying to say is that we all know and came across different ahadees being associated to Muhammad S.A.W which "aql" cant begin to comprehend that he could have said such a thing. So associating something to Imama A.S is not such a big deal for "historians". But as all sects of muslims agree on this, i presume its the rightful punishment but still it does not mean that i am ok with it. I think humans have time to repent till natural death. Obviously if Imam A.S have truly ruled this in particular matter then my emotions or aql is useless and that's the way to go. I was browsing through Quora when i came across this question by a non-muslim. "Does Quran says that kill a person that leaves Islam?" Now we claim that Quran is most complete and authentic book. Also "Surely, God does not shy away from teaching you truth" [33:53]. How do one answers a non believer ?
    • The four fingers in Arabic are considered "hand". But yes, you're correct. There are many misconceptions.
