“Days Of Fatima”
The “Days of Fatima” was earmarked to mourn the Martyrdom of the beloved Daughter of Prophet Muhammad (sa), Sayyeda Fatima al-Zahra (as), few months after the demise of her Father.
The attack of the Coupist mob on the residence of Sayyeda Fatima al-Zahra (as) was the root of murderous Terrorism in the house of Islam. The second Sunni Caliph led this cowardly attack.
After the death of Prophet Muhammad (sa), the first Sunni Caliph Abubakar refused Sayyeda Fatima the inheritance of her beloved Father citing a fake, fraudulent and fabricated Hadith. Sayyeda Fatima al-Zahra (as) gave him three (3) verses from the Holy Quran to support her position.
The whole world has judged Prophet Muhammad (sa) as a honorable person. Is it possible that his beloved Daughter will not inherit him after his death and she will not know of that? And all his family members will no know of this? This is absolutely impossible!!!
After the cowardly attack on the residence of the beloved Daughter of the Prophet (sa), she became angry with the first and second Sunni Caliphs who were responsible for this cowardly attack. She refused to speak with them again until her death and she made a will that she should be buried at night so that they will not attend her funeral.
“Whoever angers Fatima angers me, and whoever angers me angers God.” – Prophet Muhammad (sa)
The above authentic Hadith was narrated by all the Sunni sources of Hadith. And the daughter of the first Sunni Caliph and wife of the Prophet, Aisha, clearly stated that Sayyeda Fatima was angry with her father, Abubakar, and his close friend, Umar.
My journey to Shia Islam started on this issue in 1986 when I was a High School student at Government College Kaduna (GCK). Every night then we usually go to the School Mosque to pray Magrib and Isha prayers. The Sunni Imam will give Islamic Lectures in between. One day he recited the above Hadith and gave a brief history about the disagreement between Sayyeda Fatima and the Caliph Abubakar. I went home that day really confused because I considered Abubakar the greatest person after the Prophet.
The next day at School during Break period I rushed to the School Mosque and met this Sunni Imam. I requested that he gave me details of what happened? He patiently restated Islamic history. He guardedly ended his statement by saying: “God forbid that Sayyeda Fatima request for what do not belong to her and God save Abubakar from the anger of Sayyeda Fatima!”. The Sunni Imam looked at my young face intently and he saw tears in my eyes. He asked me that I am not convinced with his conclusion? I replied “Yes!”. (We should please recite AlFatiha for the soul of this Sunni Imam, I was informed he died last year. I learnt a lot from him.)
I went home more confused and I plunged into research. The Kaduna state Library was rich in Books then, I went to the Islamic section and I saw Shia Books. The first Book I opened I was expecting “Ali RasulAllah” but I saw “Muhammad RasulAllah”. I became more confused because we were brainwashed then that Shias do not believe in the prophethood of Muhammad al-Mustapha (sa). When I saw from my research that Sayyeda Fatima presented 3 verses of the Quran as proof to Caliph Abubakar for her inheritance, my Sunnism ended on that day!
Our Heartfelt Condolences to the Holy Prophet (sa) for the Martyrdom of his beloved Daughter, Sayyeda Fatima al-Zahra (as), God accept her sacrifice for True Islam! 💔💔💔
