 Fatimah bint Muhammad`s (sa) Knowledge

Fatimah bint Muhammad (sa) acquired her divine knowledge from the clear spring of Prophethood and received the excellence of truth from the house of revelation. So her attentive heart was embellished with wisdom and her brilliant reason together with her brightness realized to the fullest extent the real meaning of every fact.

Yet, despite the fact that Fatimah bint Muhammad (sa) heard an abundant volume of narrations from her father, Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) what has been reported on her authority is limited to certain issues. Following is one of the narrations reported in Bihar.

Imam Hassan Askari (as) said: A woman came to Fatimah bint Muhammad (sa) and said: `I have a weak mother who has become confused about a matter related to her prayer; she sent me to inquire from you about it.`

Fatimah bint Muhammad (sa) answered her; the woman repeatedly came with questions for Fatimah bint Muhammad (sa) and Fatimah bint Muhammad (sa) kindly answered her every time. One day the lady again approached Fatimah bint Muhammad (sa) with another question from her mother and said to Fatimah bint Muhammad (sa):

`I shall not inconvenience you (any more), daughter of Allah`s Messenger.`

Fatimah bint Muhammad (sa) replied: `Ask me regarding anything, which comes to your mind. Because if a man had been hired to transport a heavy load to the top of a mountain for a reward of one thousand dinars, do you think it would bother him?`

The woman said: `No`

Fatimah bint Muhammad (sa) continued: `My reward for (answering) every inquiry is more than that which fills (the space) between the ground and the Throne with pearls; thus, I should be more apt to answer your questions.`

Tasbih of Fatimah Zahra (sa) or Fatimah bint Muhammad (sa)

Allahu Akbar (Allah is greatest)Fatimah Zahra (sa) used to run her house without much help; Prophet Muhammad (saw) could see how hard his daughter worked at home. One day Prophet Muhammad (saw) said he would give her something that would be better than a helper or anything else she wished in this world, this is when Prophet Muhammad (saw) gives Fatimah Zahra (sa) the gift of this Tasbih and its is known as Tasbih of Fatimah Zahra (sa). This Tasbih is recommended to be read after every Namaz / Salah.

34 times - Allahu Akbar (Allah is greatest)
33 times - Alhamdulillah (Praise to Allah)
33 times - Subhanallah (Perfect Glory is to Allah)

Alhamdulillah (Praise to Allah)The Salah is like a beautiful flower and the Tasbih of Fatimah Zahra (sa) gives that beautiful flower a beautiful smell. So after every Salah we should say the Tasbih of Fatimah Zahra (sa) because we want our Salah to be like a beautiful flower with a beautiful smell.

Imam Baqir (as) says whoever performs the Tasbih of Fatimah Zahra (sa) and asks Allah (swt) for forgiveness, Allah (swt) will forgive him or her a hundred times, will add a thousand good deeds to their scale, repel Shaitan /Satan and be pleased with him or her.

Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) says whoever does Tasbih of Fatimah Zahra (sa) before they move their legs or unfold their legs from the position of sitting in Wajib Salah, Allah (swt) forgives them and makes Jannah Wajib upon them. Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) also says that Tasbih of Fatimah Zahra (sa) after every Wajib Salah is more loved then praying a thousand Rakats everyday. Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) continues to say whoever does the Tasbih of Fatimah Zahra (sa) after every Salah and ends it by saying La illaha illalah, Allah (swt) will forgive his or her sins.

Subhanallah (Perfect Glory is to Allah)When Hazrat Hamza (ra) was martyred, Fatimah bint Muhammad (sa) took some earth from his grave and moulded it into beads and she used that as her Tasbih. Before this event she would use a blue woollen string that was knotted and that was the customary Tasbih before the martyrdom of Hazrat Hamza (ra). After that it became customary to make beads from clay.

Hazrat Hamza (ra) was knows as Sayyid al-Shuhada the "Chief of Martyrs". Today we call our 3rd Imam, Imam Hussein (as) Sayyid al-Shuhada and we try to use the earth from Karbala from near his grave to use in our Tasbih so that we remember the sacrifice and we remember what Tawheed (Oneness of God) is all about.

Fatimah bint Muhammad (sa) and Blind Man (Importance of Hijab in Islam)

Fatimah bint Muhammad (sa) and Blind Man (Importance of Hijab in Islam)One day the Prophet Muhammad (saw) was sitting in the house of his daughter Fatimah bint Muhammad (sa) when they heard a knock on the door. The housemaid comes to the Prophet Muhammad (saw) and says:

Oh! Prophet of Allah (saw) you companion Abdullah ibn Umme Maqdoom (who was blind) has come to visit you.

The Prophet Muhammad (saw) immediately told the housemaid to let him in. In the mean time his daughter Fatimah Zahra (sa), chief of the women
