  1. This is an excellent video based on a true incident which took place with Allama Amini (ra) , the author of Al Ghadeer A MUST WATCH REVIVNG OF JANABE ZAHRA'S NAME AND CRYING FOR HER MARTYRDOM IS INVITATION TO MONOTHEISM
  2. “Ali (A.S.) turned to the grave (of the Messenger of Allah [a]) and said, “O Brother! The people deem me weak, and they almost killed me.” Muhammed ibn Jarar ibn Rustam al-Tabari has recorded the following: “We have been informed by Makhal ibn Ibrahim al-Nahdi who says that Matar ibn Arqam has said that Aba Hamzah al-Thumali has said that Ali (A.S.) ibn al-Husain (A.S.) has said the following: When he (A.S.) passed away, and when Abu Bakr received the oath of allegiacne, Ali (A.S.) lagged behind, so `Omer said to Abu Bakr, “Are you not going to send someone to this lagging man to come and swear the oath of allegiance to you?” He (Abu Bakr) said, ‘O Qunfath! Go to Ali and tell him that the successor of the Messenger of Allah (A.S.) tells you to come and swear the oath of allegiacne.” <a href="http://oppressionsuponjanabezahra.blogspot.com/">http://oppressionsuponjanabezahra.blogspot.com/ Ali (A.S.) raised his voice saying, “Praised be Allah! How quickly you have told lies about the Messenger of Allah (A.S.)!” He returned and informed Abu Bakr of it. `Omer again said, “Are you not going to send someone to this lagging man to come and swear the oath of allegiance to you?” He (Abu Bakr) said to Qunfath, “Go to Ali and tell him that the commander of the faithful tells you to come and swear the oath of allegiance.” Qunfath went there and knocked at the door. He said, “Who is it?” He said, “It is I, Qunfath.” He said, “What brought you here?” He said, “The commander of the faithful tells you to go and swear fealty.” Ali (A.S.) raised his voice as he said, “Glory to Allah! He claims what is not his!” Qunfath returned and told Abu Bakr everything. `Omer stood up and said, “Let us go to this man to bring him here.” A group of men went with him. They knocked at the door. When Ali (A.S.) heard their voices, he said nothing. A woman spoke and inquired who they were. They said, “Tell Ali to come out and swear fealty.” Fatima (A.S.) raised her voice as she said, “O Messenger of Allah (A.S.)! What have we suffered at the hands of Abu Bakr and `Omer after you?!” When the men heard her voice and words, many of them wept. Then they went away. `Omer remained, accompanied by a number of men. They took Ali (A.S.) out and led him to Abu Bakr till they seated him in front of the latter. Abu Bakr said to him, “Swear fealty (to me).” Ali (A.S.) said, “What if I don’t?” Abu Bakr said, “Then, by Allah, the One and only God, your neck shall be struck with the sword.” Ali (A.S.) said, “You do that to me although I am a servant of Allah (A.S.) and the Brother of His Messenger.” Abu Bakr said, “Swear it.” Ali (A.S.) said, “What if I don’t?!” Abu Bakr said, “Then, by Allah, the One and only God, your neck shall be struck with the sword.” Ali (A.S.) turned to the grave (of the Messenger of Allah [a]) and said, “O Brother! The people deem me weak, and they almost killed me.” He swore fealty then left.[1] This is an article taken from the book - TRAGEDY OF AL-ZAHRA’ (A.S.).

  4. Imam Sadiq (as) said, “O’ Lord, have mercy upon those eyes, which have shed tears in compassion for us; and upon those hearts, which have been restless and blistered for us; and upon those wailings, which have been for us.” This is a video from YouTube which highlights how wounded her heart was in the final days of her life. It also highlights the love of Fatema (sa) for her son Imam Hussain (as). Also her concern for her husband Imam Ali (as) for the tribulations that were yet to come in his life.

  6. Narrations From Imam Ali (as) About The Persecution On Hazrat Fatema (sa) Imam Ali (as) said to Umar, “It is the fire that you ignited at the door of my house in order to burn me and to burn Fatima (A.S.), daughter of the Messenger of Allah (A.S.), and burn my sons, al-Hasan (A.S.) and al-Husain (A.S.) and also burn my daughters Obtainable and Umm Kulthum…, etc .” SALIM ibn Qais has narrated saying that `Umar ibn al-Khattab once fined all his governors half of their salaries, exempting Qunfuz al-`Adawi from such a fine, and he was one of such governors. He even returned to him what he had taken away from him, the sum of twenty thousand dirhams. Nor did he deduct the tilth, nor half the tilth. Aban said that SALIM has said, “I met Ali (A.S.) and asked him about what he thought regarding what `Umar had done. He said, `Do you know why he (`Umar) exempted Qunfuz and did not fine him or deduct anything from his salary?’ I said, `No.’ He said, `Because he is the one who hit Fatima, peace and blessings of Allah be upon her, with the whip when she came to act as a barrier between me and them. So she died, peace and blessings of Allah be upon her, and there was still a mark on her wrist like a bracelet.’”[1] http://oppressionsuponjanabezahra.blogspot.com/ Aban has said that SALIM said, “I went to a study circle at the Mosque of the Messenger of Allah (A.S.). The non-Hashemites were Salman, Abu Tharr, al-Miqdad, Muhammed ibn Abu Bakr, `Umar ibn Aba Salamah and Qais ibn Sa`d ibn `Abadah. Al-`Abbas said to Ali (A.S.), `I wonder what stopped `Umar from fining Qunfuz as he did to all his other governors.’ Ali (A.S.) looked around him, then his eyes were filled with tears. He then said, `He did so in appreciation of his hitting Fatima (A.S.) with the whip, so she died and her wrist bore the mark of the hit like a bracelet.’”[2] SALIM quotes Ibn `Abbas saying, “I visited Ali (A.S.) at Tha Qar. He took out a tablet and said to me, `O son of `Abbas! This is a tablet written according to what the Messenger of Allah (A.S.) dictated to me, and it is in my own handwriting.’ I said, `O Commander of the Faithful! Please read it for me.’ He read it, and it contained a narrative of the events from the demise of the Messenger of Allah (A.S.) to the martyrdom of al-Husain (A.S.), detailing how he would be killed, the name of his killer, the names of his supporters, and who would be martyred in his company. He wept profusely, causing me to weep, too. Among what he read to me was what would happen to him (to Ali [a]), how Fatima (A.S.) would be martyred, how al-Hasan (A.S.) would be betrayed by the nation then be martyred, etc.”[3] Ali (A.S.) is quoted, at the time when he buried al-Zahra’ (A.S.), as saying, “… And your daughter shall inform you of how the nation assisted each other in oppressing her, so inquire of her and ask her about the conditions, for there are many agonies filling her chest for which she found no outlet…”[4] His speech, peace be upon him, above, although free from frankly stating what took place to al-Zahra’ (A.S.), is indicative of the fact that there were many injustices that remained inside her chest, peace be upon her, for which she found no outlet. Among such injustices are: the confiscation of Fadak, the confiscation of her inheritance, the usurpation of the caliphate that belonged to her husband, because these issues she did publicly and clearly announce, using them as proofs indicting the oppressors, delivering a great sermon in explaining them. Refer to what is mentioned by the mentor al-Kaf`ami, who died in 905 A.H., in his book titled Al-Misbah which he compiled from about two hundred and forty books. He states that he compiled it “… from books the authenticity of which is reliable and upholding them mandated, and this cannot be altered by the evil efforts of time or by the endeavor of those with twisted minds.” Books, like the sun, whose light Is written above the most high of height.[5] He, may Allah have mercy on him, recorded a supplication transmitted by Ibn `Abbas and which Ali (A.S.) used to recite in his qunat. In a footnote, he described it as, “a great supplication, one of a lofty status.” About this supplication, Ali (A.S.) says, “One who recites it is like one who shot a million[6] arrows in defense of the Prophet (A.S.) during the battles of Badr and Hunain.” Among the rext of that supplication is the following with reference to the Household of the Prophet (A.S.): “… and they both killed his children, vacated his pulpit from his wasi and the heir of is knowledge, reneging from their fealty to his Imamate… and a womb which they cut open, and a fetus which they caused to miscarry, and a rib which they crushed, and a covenant which they tore to pieces…, etc.”[7] In a comment which he made about it and which he included in a footnote of his book, Misbahallama al-Majlisi, “The mentor/scholar As`ad ibn `Abd al-Qahir said the following in his book titled Rashh al-Bala’: `When he referred to their demolition of the House of Prophethood, he was referring to the harm inflicted by the first (caliph) and the second against Ali (A.S.) and Fatima (A.S.), their desire to burn the house of Ali (A.S.), how they led him away like a wounded camel, how they squeezed Fatima at her door till she miscarried al-Muhassan… She ordered to be buried at night and that neither the first nor the second should be present at her funeral.’”[8] He also referred to the rib that was crushed, the covenant that was torn to pieces, a reference to what they committed against Fatima (A.S.), how they tore her property’s title (of the real estate of Fadak) to pieces, and how her rib was crushed.[9] Muhammed ibn al-Hasan ibn Ahmed ibn al-Walid cites Ahmed ibn Idras, Muhammed ibn Yahya al-`Attar, who all quote Muhammed ibn Ahmed ibn Aba Hamzah al-Bata’ini quoting Ibn `Umayrah quoting Muhammed ibn `Utbah quoting Muhammed ibn `Abd al-Rehman quoting his father quoting Ali ibn Abi Talib (A.S.) saying, “While I, Fatima (A.S.), al-Hasan (A.S.) and al-Husain (A.S.) were all in the company of the Messenger of Allah (A.S.), he turned to us and wept. I asked him, `What is that for, O Messenger of Allah (A.S.)?!’ He said, `I weep for you and how you will be hit on the head with the sword, and I weep for Fatima (A.S.) and how she will be slapped on the cheek.”[10] Al-Majlisi describes this narrative as reliable; so refer to his work.[11] Ahmed ibn al-Khasab, citing Ja`fer ibn Muhammed al-Mufaddal quoting Muhammed ibn Sinan al-Zahiri quoting `Abdullah ibn `Abd ar-Rahman al-Asam quoting Madah ibn Haran ibn Sa`d saying, “I heard the father of al-Tufayl, namely `amir ibn Wa’ilah citing the Commander of the Faithful (A.S.) saying to `Umar, among other things, the following: It is the fire that you ignited at the door of my house in order to burn me and to burn Fatima (A.S.), daughter of the Messenger of Allah (A.S.), and burn my sons, al-Hasan (A.S.) and al-Husain (A.S.) and also burn my daughters Zainab and Umm Kulthum…, etc.”[12] What proves violence against Ali (A.S.) and forcing him to swear fealty is a letter which Mu`awiyah wrote him and his answer to it. Mu`awiyah said to him that he was too slow to swear fealty to the “caliphs,” so he was taken to swear it against his wish as a run-away camel is taken.[13] Among what he said to him was, “You envied Abu Bakr, swerved from his path, wished his attempt would fail, kept sitting at home and attracted a group of people to you till they lagged behind rather than swear fealty to him.” He continued to say, “None of these except that you sought the upper hand over him and were sluggish to swear fealty to him till you were taken to him by force like a frightened camel.”[14] The Commander of the Faithful (A.S.) answered him with a letter wherein he said, “And you aid that I was led like a frightened camel in order to swear fealty. By Allah! You intended to speak ill of me but praised me, and to expose me but exposed your own self. There is no harm in a Muslim being oppressed so long as he does not entertain any doubts about his religion…, etc.”[15] This narrative proves that they entered his house and took him out by force, underscoring the fact that they did not have any respect for the privacy of al-Zahra’ (A.S.) who tried to keep them away from him as much as she could as indicated in many narratives although this particular narrative did not disclose how they were directly involved in harming al-Zahra’ (A.S.). Al-Daylami has stated that al-Zahra’ (A.S.) detailed what she had to go through. Among what she said was the following: “… Then they sent to our house Qunfuz accompanied by `Umar ibn al-Khattab and Khalid ibn al-Walid in order to get my cousin Ali (A.S.) to the saqifa of Bana Sa`idah for their lost fealty, but he would not go out to meet them, being busy carrying out the will of the Messenger of Allah (A.S.) and with his wives, with compiling the Qur’an and with the repayment of eighty thousand dirhams which he (A.S.) had instructed him to pay on his behalf: the price of equipment and of debt. They collected plenty of firewood at our door. Then they brought a flame to set it to fire and to burn us. I stood at the door’s knob and pleaded to them in the Name of Allah to leave us alone and to come to our aid. `Umar took the whip from the hand of Qunfuz, slave of Abu Bakr, and hit me with it on the wrist. The whip twisted itself around my wrist, leaving a mark like a bracelet on it. He kicked the door with his foot. Ali (A.S.) shut it back, and I was pregnant. I fell on my face as the fire kept burning, parching my face. He slapped me with his hand, causing my ear-ring to fall on the ground into bits and pieces. Labor overtook me, so I miscarried al-Muhassan who was killed without having committed any crime. Is this a nation that blesses me?! Allah and His Messenger disowned them and I, too, disowned them.” The Commander of the Faithful (A.S.) carried out her will. He did not inform anyone about her demise. At al-Baqi`, he dug up forty graves during the night wherein he buried Fatima (A.S.). Then the Muslims, having come to know about the death and burial of Fatima (A.S.), went to the Commander of the Faithful (A.S.) to offer their condolences. They said, “O Brother of the Messenger of Allah (A.S.)! Order us to prepare her for burial and to dig up her grave.” He (A.S.) said, “She has already been buried, joining her father (A.S.).” They said, “We belong to Allah, and to Him shall we return. How can the daughter of our Prophet Muhammed (A.S.), his only offspring, die and we do not perform her funeral prayers?! This is truly very serious!” He (A.S.) said, “Suffices you what you have committed against Allah, the Messenger of Allah (A.S.) and his Progeny. By Allah! I would not violate her will which she entrusted to me, that is, that none of you should perform her funeral prayers, and there is no blame on one who carries out someone’s will.” Those folks shook the dust off their clothes and said, “We have to perform the funeral prayers for the daughter of the Messenger of Allah (A.S.).” They immediately went to al-Baqi` and found forty graves freshly dug up. They could not tell which one of them was hers. People exchanged blame and accusations and said, “You did not witness the demise of the daughter of your Prophet, nor did you perform the funeral prayers for her, and now you do not even know here her grave is so you may visit it!” Abu Bakr said, “Let a number of trustworthy Muslims dig up these graves till you find her grave so that we may perform her funeral prayers and visit it.” The Commander of the Faithful (A.S.) heard about it, so he went out of his house angrily. His face was red with anger, his eyes burning, his cheeks puffed up, and he was carrying on his hand his yellow outer garment which he never put it on except on an ill-fated day. He was using his sword, Thul-Fiqar, like a walking stick till he reached al-Baqi`. Prior to his arrival, news reached people that he was going there. A warner said to them, “Here is Ali (A.S.) coming as you can see swearing by Allah that no brick of these graves will be moved from its place except that he will let his sword do its business against the unlucky from among this nation. People fled away in hordes.[16] Among the verses of poetry which were narrated by traditionists and historians and which were composed by al-Zahra’ (A.S.) eulogizing the greatest of all Prophets (A.S.) are the following: Why should one who sniffs the earth Where Ahmed is buried that he shall not As long as he lives sniff musk at all? Calamities were poured over me had they Been poured on the light of days, They would have turned it into nights. So today I am submitting to humiliation Shunning the oppression, Defending myself against the oppressor Even with my own outer garment.[17] Had the calamities to which she is referring in these lines been one relevant to the demise of her father, she would not have used the plural, nor has she resorted to submitting to humiliation or to defending herself with her outer garment. Another verse of poetry refers to her defending herself against her oppressor with her own mantle, referring to the oppression which was not confined to usurping her inheritance, and Fadak, for these do not need to defend against the oppressor with her outer mantle, but she went out and demanded restitution, providing arguments. Add to all the above the fact that one who used her outer mantle to defend against oppression is one who exerts a physical endeavor which she, peace be upon her, had to exert. She did not confine herself to delivering a speech and to provide arguments supporting her claims. This is an article taken from the book - TRAGEDY OF AL-ZAHRA’ (A.S.).

  7. Abu Bakr and Umar meet Janabe Zahra (sa) The effects of this tyranny stayed on the holy body of Janabe’ Zahra (a.s.). After this, she remained sad and became sick, till she was confined to the bed. The body started becoming weak and thin and nothing remained till she was reduced to a shadow of herself. She became severely sick. She did not permit those who had troubled her to visit her. Nobody saw her smile towards the end of her life. When her sickness intensified Umar told Abu Bakr, “I wish to visit Janabe’ Zahra (s.a.). We have offended her.” They sought permission to meet her, but she did not grant them permission. They kept on insisting. Then, one day they met Hazrat Ali (a.s.) and said, “You know what has transpired between us and Janabe’ Zahra. If you find it appropriate, then obtain us permission to meet her so that we can apologise for our crimes.http://oppressionsup...0ALI%20%28AS%29 In another narration it is found, that when Abu Bakr realised he was not getting permission, he took an oath that till he secured permission to meet Janabe’ Zahra (s.a.) and pleased her, he would not sit in the shade. That night he spent in Baqi under the sky. Umar told Hazrat Ali (a.s.), “he (Abu Bakr) is old, weak hearted, he has spent a night in the cave with the Prophet (s.a.w.). We visited Janabe’ Zahra many times, sought permission to meet her, but she refused. We want to meet and please her. If you find it appropriate, then obtain permission for us to meet her.” Hazrat Ali went to Janabe’ Zahra (a.s.) and told her, “you know the intensity with which these two had troubled you. They often came (to meet you), but you refused them permission. Now they have requested me that I obtain permission for them from you.” She (a.s.) said, “By Allah, I will never grant them permission, nor shall I talk to them. And I shall complain to my father about all that they have done to me.” Hazrat Ali (a.s.) said, “I have spoken to them about getting them permission.”She (a.s.) said, “if that is the case, then this house is yours, and I am dutiful to you. I shall not oppose you. You give permission to whomsoever you wish.” Hazrat Ali (a.s.) obtained permission for them. When they came and conveyed salaams to Janabe’ Zahra (s.a.), she turned her face away from them, and did not reply to their salutations. They went to another side and saluted her, but yet, she did not reply and turned her face away. This happened many times. Janabe’ Zahra (a.s.) said, “O Ali put the curtain.” She said to the ladies present, “turn my face the other way.” When she turned her face away, Abu Bakr said, “O daughter of the Prophet (s.a.w.), we have come in your presence, to please you and seek refuge from your annoyance. We request you to forgive us.”She (a.s.) answered, “I will not talk to you, not even a word. I shall complain to my father about your atrocities.”They said, “We seek forgiveness from you, forgive us. And whatever difficulties you faced on account of us, do not complain about them. We confess to our crimes and request you not be offended with us.”Janabe’ Zahra (a.s.) faced Ali (a.s.) and said, “I will not talk to these two. I shall ask them about what they have heard from the Prophet of Allah (s.a.w.), and if they answer correctly then I shall consider.”The replied, “please speak up. Question us and we shall not say anything, but the truth.” She (a.s.) said, “I ask you by God, did you hear the Prophet say, Fatemah is a piece of my flesh, and I am from her. Whoever troubles her has troubled me. And whoever troubles me has troubled Allah. Whoever troubled her after my death, is like the one who troubled her during my lifetime. And whoever troubled her during my life, is like the one who troubled her after my death.’Both replied, “Yes, we have heard this.”She said, “praised be to Allah! Then she continued, “O Allah! I make you a witness, and make all those present here a witness and confirm that these two have troubled me during my life and after my death. I shall not speak to you both till I am alive. And whatever you have done to me, I shall complain to Allah about it all.” Hearing this Abu Bakr began crying and complained, “I wish my mother had not given birth to me.” Umar said, “I am surprised at how the people made you the Caliph! You have lost your senses due to your old age. You cry on account of the displeasure of women, and are pleased with their pleasure.” In another narration it is found that Janabe’ Zahra (s.a.) said, “I give you God’s oath, and ask you – have you not heard the Prophet of Allah (s.a.w.) say, ‘Fatemah’s pleasure is my pleasure and her displeasure is my displeasure. Whoever loves my daughter Zahra loves me. Whoever has hurt her has hurt me.’Both answered in the affirmative. She said, “I make God and the angels a witness and say that you both have hurt me, and have not pleased me. When I meet the Prophet, I shall complain to him about you both.” After they left, Janabe’ Zahra asked Hazrat Ali (a.s.), “Did I do what you wanted me to do. Ali (a.s.) replied, “you did exactly that.” ‘If I ask you something, will you do that.’ ‘Yes.’ “For God’s sake, these two should not recite my funeral prayers nor visit my grave.” Abu Bakr started weeping, while she (s.a.) said, ‘By Allah! I shall curse you in every prayer.”<a href="http://www.blogger.com/post-create.g?blogID=7152126183321118029#_ftn1" name="_ftnref1" title="">[1] [1] al – Imamah wal Siyasah pg 19, 20. The author says “When Abu Bakr went to visit Janabe Zahra (s.a) at the time of her illness due to the injury caused by the falling door, she (s.a) said “I will pray to Allah that He should punish you” This has been narrated by Balazari in his book Ansaab – ul – Ashraaf 10 / 79; Jahiz in his book Ar Rasael page 467; Shar’he Nahjul Balagha volume 16 page 264. The visit of these two elders to the house of Janabe’ Zahra (s.a) at the time of her injury has been mentioned by many scholars. Some of the notable books are Sayyada Fatima Zahra (s.a) page 145; Ahlul Bait (a.s) page 168 by Taufeeq Abu Ilm; al Imam Ali volume 1 page 193 by Ustad Abdul Fatah; Fatima Zahra volume 2 page 253 by Ustad Abdul Fatah; Qurratul Aainain page 229 by Mohaddis Dehlavi; Sulaym Ibne’ Qays page 253; Kifayatul Asar page 60; Dalailul Imamah page 45; As Shafee volume 4 page 214; Shar’he Nahjul Balagha volume 16 page 218; Ealalush Sharaee page 186/187; Beharul Anwaar volume 28 page 303, volume 36 page 307, volume 43 page 170/202/203. The author (of al Imamah) says “Why did these two delay in paying a visit to Janabe Zahra (s.a) till the time that it had become clear that she would succumb to her injuries? Why did she (s.a) refuse to meet them at all while these two pleaded with Hazrat Ali (a.s) to let them come in the house. Even they finally entered the house, why did she (s.a) not reply to their salutations? Why did she (s.a) refuse to forgive them while forgiving is a very noble characteristic and it has been emphasized in the Quran as well in the traditions? The real reasons for all this are very clear. Their visit to inquire about the health of Janabe Fatima (s.a) was politically motivated while their real intention was to keep the truth away from the masses and it was precisely for this reason that they delayed their visit of Janabe Zahra (s.a). When Hazrat Ali (a.s) allowed them to enter in the house, then too she (s.a) was firm in not talking to them. In fact she turned the table on them when she said to Abu Bakr that she (s.a) would pray to Allah to chastise him. On hearing this, Abu Bakr ran out of the house in tears. The one who accepts his mistake is forgiven, not the one who is obstinate. If these two were truly repentant then they should have given the caliphate back to Hazrat Ali (a.s) to whom it lawfully belonged. If the usurper is regretful of his actions then its remedy is to return that thing which he has usurped. Merely seeking forgiveness is not sufficient. Besides, why was Fadak – which was the right of Janabe Zahra (s.a) not returned back to her? Besides this is such a heinous crime that the entire humanity is engulfed in it. So how could she (s.a) forgive these two?
