In the Name of God بسم الله
I came across this website that gives quotations regarding fatima (AS) and her implied superiority. Here are some of the hadith: Translation of Shia Hadith Qudsi: Allah said to the Prophet sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam: “O Ahmad if it weren’t for you I wouldn’t have created the universe, and if it weren’t for Ali I wouldn’t have created you, and if it weren’t for Fatima I wouldn’t have created you both.” Shia sources: – al-Jannah al-‘Asimah p148. – Multaqa al-Bahrayn p14. – Mustadrak Safeenat al-Bihar 3/334. – ‘Awalim al-‘Awalim wal Ma’arif p26 from Majma’
Are the hadith literal or metaphorical? for example shia hadith i have read say that the imam will be able to uproot the largest tree with his hands and move mountains...if only metaphorical (which is how i see them) them how strong will the imam (as) be physically...? ps it is mostly shia hadith that talk about the supernatural....sunni hadith mostly refer to the imam as a special but normal man.
