Janabe Fatima Zahra (s.a.) - The Criterion of Truth Part 2

Continued from part 1 .....

Now pay attention to this discussion that is found in SahihBukhari, Sahih Muslim &Musnad of Ahmed ibnHanbal.
أَنَّ فَاطِمَةَ بِنْتَ النَّبِيَّ أَرْسَلَتْ إِلٰى أَبِيْ بَكْرٍ تَسْأَلُهٗ مِيرَاثَهَا مِنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ مِمَّا أَفَاءَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ بِالْمَدِينَةِ وَ فَدَكَ وَ مَا بَقِيَ مِنْ خُمُسِ خَيْبَـرَ. فَقَالَ أَبُو بَكْرٍ إِنَّ رَسُوْلَ اللَّهِ قَالَ لَا نُوَرِّثُ مَا تَرَكْنَاهُ صَدَقَةً...فَأَبَى أَبُو بَكْرٍ أَنْ يَدْفَعَ إِلٰى فَاطِمَةَ شَيْئًا. فَوَجَدَتْ فَاطِمَةُ عَلٰى أَبِيْ بَكْرٍ فِي ذٰلِكَ، فَهَجَرَتْهُ فَلَمْ تُكَلِّمْهُ حَتَّى تُوُفِّيَتْ، وَ عَاشَتْ بَعْدَ النَّبِيِّ سِتَّةَ أَشْهُرٍفَلَمَّا تُوُفِّيَتْ دَفَنَهَا زَوْجُهَا عَلِيٌّ  لَيْلًا وَ لَمْ يُؤْذِنْ بِهَا أَبَا بَكْرٍ، وَ صَلَّى عَلَيْهَا...وَ لَمْ يَكُنْ يُبَايِعُ تِلْكَ الْاَشْهُرِ.

“J. Zahra (s.a.) sent an envoy to Abu Bakr demanding her inheritance. The inheritance included her share of the booty of Madina, the orchards of Fadak and the portion of Khums (Sahme Imam). Abu Bakrflatly refused saying, ‘Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) has said that we do not leave behind any inheritance. Whatever is left behind by us is charity (i.e. it belongs to everyone and not to any particular person).”Thus he declined to give J. Zahra (s.a.) her inheritance. This angered her (s.a.) immensely and she refused to talk to him all her life. She lived for six months after the demise of Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.). When she left for the heavenly abode, H. Ali (a.s.) buried her in the darkness of the night without informing Abu Bakr about her death. H. Ali (a.s.) prayed her funeral prayers alone. Till then he had not pledged his allegiance to Abu Bakr” [1]

The above discussion is mentioned in the following books with slight variations
*         Kitab-o-JehadwaSair, vol. 4, p. 29; published by Mo’asisAzzuddin 1408 AH
*         Musnad of Ahmed ibnHanbal, vol. 1, p. 9; published by DaarusSadir, Beirut
*         Tabaqaat-e-IbnSa’ad, vol. 2, p. 315; published by Daar-e-Beirut, 1405 AH
*         Tareekh-e-Tabari, vol. 2, p. 236; published by DarrulQutubulAalemiyaah 1408 AH

The point that is clear from the above excerpt is that by denying J. Zahra her lawful inheritance, Abu Bakr made her angry and caused her immense agony. He took the help of a (fictitious) tradition of Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.)“We prophets do not leave behind any inheritance” and deprived her (s.a.) of her rights.

Janabe Fatima Zahra (s.a.) - The Criterion of Truth Part 1

Imam Bukhari has narrated a famous tradition from Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) in his Sahih, vol. 5, p. 96. Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) said,
          فَاطِمَةُ سَيِّدَةُ نِسَاءِ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ
           “Janabe Fatima Zahra (s.a.) is the chief of all women of Paradise”

This tradition leaves no doubt that J. Zahra (s.a.) is the foremost woman of the universe. This is because the women of Paradise are special and chosen ones and J. Zahra (s.a.) is their chief and leader. Hence she excels all the women of the universe without exception.  J. Aasiya, J. Khadija, J. Maryam ….. All of them are the women of Paradise. J. Zahra (s.a.) is superior to all of them since she (s.a.)is their leader in Paradise.

Allah says about J. Maryam in the Holy Quran

وَ اِذْ قَالَتِ الْمَلٰٓئِکَۃُیٰمَرْیَمُ اِنَّ اللہَ اصْطَفٰکِ وَطَہَّرَکِ وَاصْطَفٰکِ عَلٰی نِسَآءِ الْعٰلَمِیۡنَ.
And when the angels said, “O Maryam! Allah has chosen you and purified you and selected you from all the women of the worlds” [1]

J. Zahra (s.a.) is the leader of a pious, chaste and virtuous lady like J. Maryam (s.a.). This shows the exalted and lofty status of J. Zahra (s.a.). The famous research scholar of the AhleSunnah, J. Aaloosi mentions in his book “Tafseer-e-RoohulMa’na” on pg. 155 of, vol. 20 that, “J. Zahra (s.a.) is superior to J. Maryam (s.a.). According to the Holy Quran, J. Maryam (s.a.) is the chief of the women of the universe while J. Zahra (s.a.) is her leader.” The tradition of Sahih Bukhari too underlines this point.

The broken rib of Fatima Zahra (a.s) - Refuting Nawasib lies

This is a response to the 'un broken rib' film in which the nawasib provided clips of bakris and deviant scholars to speak on this issue. When we look in the shia muslims books, and the books of the bakris, we find numerous narrations and historical references regarding the oppression which took place against Fatema zahra(a.s). 

Like usual though, the deviant bakri sect will try finding an escape route, and will call these narrations weak or fabricated. The biggest proof that Fatima zahra (a.s) was oppressed goes back to a narration regarding fadak, where she claimed her right to inheritance which was stole by Abu bakr (l.a) thus she died angry and stopped speaking to him. We may ask though is this the only reason? Well if we look at this logically, and at the evidence that exists, they all link back to the same narration in bukhari and they all highlight oppression and injustice done against her by the tyrants abu bakr and umar (l.a).
