Salam brothers and sisters,

I had a question about the location of the burial of Sayyeda Fatima Zahra SA: it is well known that the place of the burial was kept secret according to the will of Sayyeda SA herself, but narrations of the burial of imam Hassan AS say that he was buried alongside his mother Fatima SA. Some sources say that it was referred to Imam Hassan AS ‘s grandmother Fatima binte Asad SA.

Can someone kindly clear out this doubt by analyzing the various sources ? Thanks 

May Allah reward you for this.

Salam without doubt Imam Hasan (عليه السلام) buried  alongside his grand mother  Fatima binte Asad SA which her burial place has been well known due to burying her by prophet Muhammad (pbu) himself anyway it has been said some reports that after martyrdom of lady Fatima (sa) so then Imam Ali (عليه السلام) has made 40 replica in cemetery of Baqii which when two caliph has tried to open graves to bring out her blessed body so then he warned them he will wear yellow garment that worn in battle of Badr so then hit them with his sword so therefore they left  cemetery of Baqii without opening of any of 40 replica of grave . 


When the grave was made ready, Muhammad, the Messenger of God, entered it; he lay down in it, and said: “O God! Life and death are in Thy hands. Thou alone will never die. Bless my mother, Fatima bint Asad, and give her a mansion in Heaven. Thou art the Most Merciful.”

When Fatima bint Asad was buried, Muhammad Mustafa repeated Allah-o-Akbar (God is Great) forty times, and prayed: “O God! Put her in the Light, and fill her heart with Light.”

Muhammad Mustafa was the Executor of the last will and testament of Fatima bint Asad.

When Imam Husayn (عليه السلام) realized that if he insists on taking the body of his brother nearer the grave of the Prophet there will be bloodshed, he refrained from it and took him away and buried him in Jannatul Baqii next to the grave of his mother.

Many people gathered together with al-Husayn b. 'Ali and said to him: "Leave us with the children of Marwan. By Allah, they are, with us, nothing but an itching of the head." Al-Husayn said: `By Allah, if there had been no injunction to me from al-Hasan, peace be on him, to prevent bloodshed and that I should not even pour blood into a cupping-glass in (carrying out) his command, you would have known how the swords of Allah would have taken their toll from you. You have broken the agreement which was made between you and us. You have ignored the conditions which we made with you for ourselves." Here al-Husayn, peace be on him, reminded them of the conditions of the Peace Treaty.

Then they went on with (the body of) al-Hasan, peace be on him, and they buried him in (the cemetery of) al-Baqi` beside his grandmother, Fatima daughter of Asad b. Hashim b. `Abd Manaf, May Allah be pleased with her.





Janabe Fatima Zehra (عليه السلام).

According to some historians she is buried here.


Jannatul Baqii

This is a plot of land not far from where the mosque of the prophet stood and the houses of his companions around it were built as living quarters. This land was used as a cemetery for the Muslims. The famous writer Mustafawi writes in Nuzhatul Qulub, “The cemetery of Madina called Baqii lies to the west of the town and here is seen the grave of Ibrahim, Prophet’s only son and also the grave of his daughter Fatima. There are graves of Prophets grand son Imam Hasan, Imam ‘Ali Ibnul Husayn Zainul Abedeen, Imam Muhammad Baqir and Imam Ja’far Sadiq (عليه السلام) .


For centuries there has been a marble slab over their graves and on this is written: In the name of God, The Merciful, The Compassionate Praise be to God Who sustains the nations and Who gives life to dead bones. Here is the tomb of Fatima, the daughter of the apostle of God and the queen of the women of the world. Here is also the tomb of Hasan Ibne ‘Ali; Here is also the tomb of ‘Ali Ibnul Husayn; Here is also the tomb of Muhammad Ibne ‘Ali al Baqir; Here is also the tomb of Ja’far Ibne Muahammad As-Sadiq. May God favor them all. The cemetery of Baqii was destroyed by the Wahabis in 1932. . A modern writer describes the scene as such: 1. When I entered the Baqii the sight which I saw was as if it were a town which had been raised to the ground. All over the cemetery nothing was to be seen but little indefinite mounds of earth and stones, pieces of timber, iron bars, blocks of stone and a broken rubble of cement and bricks strewn about. It was like the broken remains of a town which had been demolished by an earth quake. All was a wilderness of ruined building material and tombstones, not ruined by a casual hand, but raked away from their places and ground small.” The writer of this book also visited Baqii in 1995 and found that the authorities have erected a wall around the whole area of Baqii incorporating also the jewish part of the cemetery in it to make it into one huge cemetery. A platform was built just outside the wall where people can stand and see the graves of the Holy Ma’sumeen and shed a tear or two. People were allowed to enter the inner circle of the wall after the Fajr prayers for two hours but were not allowed to go near the graves. They had to stand about 30 feet away from the place and can see the outlines of the graves.

Besides 5 Ma’sumeen, there was a mark for the grave of Hazrat Fatima Bine Asad, mother of Imam ‘Ali (عليه السلام) . This is Jannatul Baqii where the most beloved daughter of the Holy Prophet together with her children and grandchildren lie in wilderness without even a tomb stone over them.
