Fadak belonged to Hazrat Fatima Zahra (s.a.) based on Islamic laws

The Shaikhain refused to grant Fadak to Hazrat Fatima Zahra (s.a.) on one pretext or the other. They  rejected her own witness as also the witnesses of her infallible husband Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) and even Umm Ayman – whose honesty was beyond reproach having been assured Paradise by the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.).
In the absence of witnesses or rather in the absence of ‘credible’ witnesses, Hazrat Fatima Zahra’s (s.a.) claim on Fadak was rejected.
Over here we do not wish to delve on the infallible personalities (a.s.) and their status near Allah and the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) and how the rulers made a blunder by ignoring this reality which was evident even to a Muslim child.
We only wish to draw the attention of the reader to the irregularities in the stand of the Shaikhain vis-à-vis Fadak, one of which we have exposed over here.
Granting the claimant her right based on swearing
Even if Fatima Zahra’s (s.a.) witnesses were found wanting, Fadak should have been granted to her based on a simple swearing.
It is strange that when other claims came before Abu Bakr, he allowed them in favour of the claimant merely on the basis of the claim while the claimant was neither asked to furnish any proof of claim, nor to produce witnesses.
In this connection, Bukhari documents:
‘It is related from Jabir Ibn Abdullah Ansari that he said – The Prophet of Allah (s.a.w.a.) had told me that when the spoils of war from Bahrain would arrive, he would allow me such and such out of it, but the spoils of war did not reach us until after the Prophet’s (s.a.w.a.) demise (martyrdom). It arrived in the days of (the government) of Abu Bakr, so I went to him and told him that the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) had promised to give me such and such property out of the spoils of war from Bahrain, whereupon he gave me all of what (was promised to me).’
  • Sahih al-Bukhari vol 2, part 27, p 190
In the interpretation of this tradition, Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani records:
‘This tradition leads us to the conclusion that the evidence of one just companion can also be admitted as full evidence, even though it may be in his own favour, because Abu Bakr did not ask Jabir to produce any witness or proof for his claim.’
Thus, if it was lawful to grant property to Jabir on the basis of a good impression (of him and his Islam) without calling for witnesses or any evidence, then what stopped the ruler from allowing Fatima Zahra’s (s.a.) claim on the basis of a similar good impression?
Firstly, her known truthfulness and honesty was enough for holding her sincere in her claim, in addition to the witnessing of Ali (a.s.) and Umm Ayman in her favour.

Abu Bakr’s claim of consensus (ijmaa) on Fadak is pointless

The topic of Fadak and the bigger debate on the inheritance of divine Prophets (a.s.) is among the key and earliest distinguishing points between the Shias and others.
The majority claims that Hazrat Fatima Zahra (s.a.) – the Holy Prophet’s (s.a.w.a.) daughter – had no right to Fadak because Allah’s Prophets (a.s.) do not leave behind inheritance.
To bolster their claim, they resort to the age-old formula of consensus (ijmaa) – meaning that the so-called Muslim majority and companions supported Abu Bakr in his claim that divine Prophets (a.s.) do not leave behind inheritance. This supposed consensus against Hazrat Fatima Zahra (s.a.) proves that Abu Bakr was right and Hazrat Fatima (s.a.) had no claim over Fadak.
Reply
There are many aspects to this debate and there are several ways to prove that Abu Bakr was mistaken like on many other occasions in his life, a fact already been established by scholars of both sects; thereby establishing Hazrat Fatima’s (s.a.) indisputable claim to Fadak.
We adopt another approach to this debate as suggested by a well-known Muslim scholar to prove that the argument of consensus of Abu Bakr is nullified by a similar argument in Hazrat Fatima’s (s.a.) favour.
Al-Jaahiz’s stand on the dispute over Fadak
Abu Usman al-Jaahiz, a well-known teacher and thinker of the Ahle Tasannun quotes Sayyid al-Murtaza Alam al-Hoda (r.a.):
The people (companions) presume that the veracity of the so-called tradition of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) narrated by the two men, meaning Abu Bakr and Umar that – ‘We the Prophets do not leave anything as inheritance’, can be established on the basis that when this was attributed to the Prophet (s.a.w.a.), the Muslims did not refute it – rather they accepted it.
But I (Jaahiz) say to those men who think likewise that if the veracity of this ‘tradition’ is proved because the people accept it (thereby signifying consensus), then the people did not even object against the claim and the protest of Ali (a.s.) and Fatima (s.a.), and this should also be a proof of their (Ali a.s. and Fatima’s s.a.) truthfulness.
No one objected to them, nor said that they were lying, even though the dispute and discussion between Fatima (s.a.) and Abu Bakr was prolonged.
Their enmity reached to an extent that Fatima (s.a.) willed that Abu Bakr should not even participate in her funeral prayers.
When Fatima (s.a.) approached Abu Bakr to claim her right, she demanded – When you die, who will inherit you?
Abu Bakr replied – My family and my children.
Fatima (s.a.) responded – How is it that we should not inherit from the Prophet (s.a.w.a.), but your children inherit from you?
When Abu Bakr prevented Fatima (s.a.) from claiming her father’s inheritance and started making excuses and when Fatima (s.a.) witnessed his cruelty and saw her own helplessness and loneliness, she rebuked Abu Bakr: By Allah! I will invoke Allah’s curse on you.
Abu Bakr – By Allah! I will invoke Allah for your well-being.
Fatima (s.a.) – By Allah! I will never speak with you from now on
Abu Bakr – By Allah! I will never be away from you.
Therefore, if the ‘truthfulness’ of Abu Bakr deprived Hazrat Fatima (s.a.) from her father’s inheritance can be established on the grounds that the companions did not protest against him, then it can be said that Hazrat Fatima (s.a.) was also truthful in her claim (since no one protested against her either).
The least that was necessary for the Muslims was that if Hazrat Fatima (s.a) was unaware (of the rule of Islam), then they should have explained it to her, and if she had forgotten, then they should have reminded her. If her talks were baseless (we seek refuge in Allah!) or she was going astray or severing relations, then they should have rectified her by protesting.
Thus, it can be concluded that if no one protested against those two men, and no one even protested against Hazrat Fatima (s.a.) – then the two parties are at par in opposing each other and no one can argue on the basis of consensus in favour of Abu Bakr (because Fatima (s.a.) can likewise claim consensus for her stand!).
In this matter, we should refer to the original rules of inheritance and ordinances of Allah (in the Holy Quran) regarding the matter of inheritance, and this is the best mode to follow.
  • Al-Shafi v. 1 p. 233 of Sayyid al-Murtaza (r.a.)
  • Bait al-Ahzan pp. 165-167
Clearly, even the earliest scholars of the Ahle Tasannun were of the view that the consensus on Fadak was not a strong argument in Abu Bakr’s favour. Given that consensus can be claimed by both parties, the only way to break this deadlock is with the Holy Quran’s ordinance on inheritance. Hazrat Fatima Zahra (s.a.) herself has laid out plainly in the Sermon on Fadak that the Holy Quran has categorically stated that fathers leave inheritance for their children and even divine Prophets like Prophet Dawood (a.s.) and Prophet Zakariyya (a.s.) left inheritance for their progenies.
Take lesson, O people of intellect!

The Crying For Imam Hussain (as) Reaches Lady Fatima (s.a.) and Her Lamentation

It is written in the book Kamiluz Ziyarat ( chp 26 tdn no 7) :


Abu Basir says: I was speaking with Imam Sadiq (a.s.) when one of his sons entered. Imam (a.s.) said: ‘May Allah bless you’; and then embraced and kissed him.

Then he (as) said: ‘May Allah degrade those who dishonored you. May Allah avenge those who oppressed you. May Allah disappoint those who deserted you. May Allah curse those who slain you. May Allah be your guardian, protector and helper. Prophets, truthful ones, martyrs, angels of the heavens and our ladies have been weeping on you’.

Then Imam (a.s.) began to weep and said: ‘Abu Basir, when I look at the children of Imam Husain (a.s.), grief overcomes me when I remember what was meted out to them and to their father.’
‘Abu Basir, Fatima (s.a.) weeps and laments over Husain (a.s.) as a result of which Hell sighs so intensely, that if the keepers of Hell who also hear her voice did not prepare themselves to restrain it, it would burn all the inhabitants of the earth with its blazing fires and sparking fumes. So the keepers restrain it and hold its doors tightly closed as long as Fatima (s.a.) laments. Because they fear for the inhabitants of the earth. But Hell is not pacified until Fatima’s lamentation ends.’

‘Abu Basir, the seas almost split apart and collide with each other. There is a dedicated angel for every drop of water and they prevent every drop from boiling with their wings; keeping it together because of their fear for this world and everything in it. The angels remain in fear and cry for her crying. And they pray to Allah and beseech Him, after which the inhabitants of the Arsh and those around it beg Allah.’


‘Then their voices are raised in glorification of Allah, all because of their fear for the people of the earth. Even if one of their voices reached the earth, all the inhabitants would swoon, mountains would crumble and the earth would shake with its inhabitants.’

Abu Basir said, “May I be sacrificed on you! It is really a serious matter.”
Imam (a.s.) said, “That which you have not heard is greater. Abu Basir! Don’t you want to be of those who support Lady Fatima (s.a.)?”
When I heard this, I cried so much that I could not speak nor could the Imam (a.s.) do, because he was crying so intensely. Then he went to his prayer room and began to recite a supplication.

So I left the Imam in that state. I could not eat or sleep that night. The following morning, I was fasting and was in extreme fear when I went to Imam (a.s.). I heaved as sigh of relief when I saw that he had calmed down; and I praised and glorified Allah, because no chastisement or calamity had befallen me
