    Shias and Sunnis differ on the date when Lady Fatima Zahra AS was martyred and buried. The period between Jumaadi al-Awwal 13 and Jumaadi al-Thani 3 are known as the Days of Fatima AS (Ayyam-e-Fatima AS). Condolences during these days of mourning. https://www.al-Islam.org/story-of-the-holy-kaaba-and-its-people-shabbar/story-hazrat-Fatima-daughter-holy-Prophet http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/35348-Sayyida-Fatima-al-Zahra-as-official-thread/

    Safar 7 is a special day in Islamic history. Some say that it is the day that Imam Hassan AS was martyred but most say that he was martyred on Safar 28, the same day as Prophet Muhammad SA. Safar 7 is the day that the 7th Imam Moosa Kadhim AS was born, however since that day falls in between the tragedy of Ashura and Arba'een, the birthday of Imam Kazim AS is not celebrated, but his life is remembered and ziyarahs are recited. https://www.al-Islam.org/brief-history-fourteen-infallibles/ninth-infallible-seventh-Imam https://www.al-Islam.org/brief-history-fourteen-infallibles/fourth-infallible-second-Imam#al-Hasan-ibn-Ali-al-mujtaba-peace-be-him
