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’a al-Noorayn. – Min Fiqh al-Zahraa 1/19. – al-Asrar al-Fatimiyyah p237. – Fatima Sirr al-Woujoud p61,62. Narrated Abu Ja’afar (as) in a long narration:“And her (Fatima’s) Obedience is obligatory on all creations of Allah from Jinn and Humans and Birds and Beasts and Prophets and Angels.”Sources:– Fatima Sirr al-Wujoud p84.– Dalael al-Imamah p228. The website author claims that some Shia regard Fatima (as) superior to imams (pbut) and Mohammad (pbuh) and that her name is written on the Throne of Allah. Is there a sect of Shia that hold this belief?
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.
