The Holy Prophet (sawa) prayed:
O Allah , curse the one who oppresses her and punish the one who usurps her property and humiliate the one who subdues her and consign in your fire forever the one who strikes her sides so much so that she loses her son !
At this the angels pronounced : Ameen !
(Ref : Behar al Anwar v 29 p 39)
The aim of this blog is to remove whatever doubts that may have entered some people’s minds regarding denial of any violence against Hazrat Fatima Zahra (s.a.) at her home, or against Hazrat Ali (a.s.) at the house of Janabe Fatima Zahra(s.a.). Authentic references have been provided in the fond hope of a definitive conclusion and the eradication of all doubts Inshallah.
Wahabis have considered this as an excellence of Abu Bakr and
have no doubt in it.
Pay attention to the following text mentioned in sources approved
Malik has narrated in Muwattah from Ayesha that she said:
Abu Bakr gifted his orchard having twenty date trees to Ayesha
and when his end approached, he said to her: My daughter, by God, nothing after
my death that you are having is more valuable to me and nothing is harder for
me than your poverty. You have received twenty date trees from me that if from
them you raise other trees also it would be for you and today all my properties
are there for my successors; that is your two brothers and two sisters. You
must distribute them according to the Book of Allah. Ayesha said: Father, I don’t
have more than one sister and she is Asma. Who is the other sister? Abu Bakr
said: Kharija (my slave girl) is pregnant with another daughter whom I can see.
And also in many other sources, the same matter is mentioned. Now,
we put the same question to Abu Shawarib Wahabi: Is Abu Bakr having sonography
facility that he has given this information?
Secondly, with regard to some companions, they have narrated that
they even spoke to angels and gave information of unseen. Were those companions
able to give information of unseen, but the Messenger of Allah (s) could not
give information about Mohsin and his martyrdom? Why Wahabis scholars don’t have
any objection against the conveying of information of unseen by other
A- For example:
The Holy Prophet (s) said: In the past nations, there were
persons who gave information of the unseen and if there is such a person in my
Ummah, it is Umar. As if revelation comes to him and the Almighty Allah and the
angels speak to him and it is narrated that Abu Bakr said: It came to my mind
that the child that Asma was supposed to give birth to would be a daughter and
if does not happen, the inspiration would be useless.
Like the report mentioned above there are innumerable reports
with same subject matter in authentic books of Ahle Sunnat. For example it is
mentioned in Sahih Muslim as follows:
Ayesha has narrated from the Holy Prophet (s) that he said:
In the past nations there were persons who gave information of
the unseen and if there is such a person in my Ummah, it is Umar.
B- Story of the call of Umar from Medina and it being heard by
Muslim fighters in Fasa Shiraz is a well known story, which is mentioned in
numerous books accepted by Wahabis and such is the popularity of this incident
that it is also mentioned in books of grammar, but we would quote it from the
book of Al-Bidaya wan Nihaya of Ibne Kathir Damishqi Wahabi:
Sariya bin Zaneem went on an expedition to Shiraz and launched an attack, but the
soldiers of Fars and Kurd arrayed their ranks
against him and a large number of them surrounded the Muslims. That night Umar
saw their battle and their number in dream and became apprehensive of their
consequences; that what they will do in the wilderness the following day. And
there was a mountain in that place that if the Muslims take its support they
would only have to be cautious from one side. The following day Umar summoned
everyone to the Masjid and spoke to the people and informed them of what he had
seen; then he called out to them from that same spot: O Sariya bin Zaneem, the
mountain, the mountain. Then he turned to the people and said: The Almighty
Allah is having soldiers who might perhaps convey this information to them.
Muslims present in that battle did what Umar had said and the Almighty Allah
also granted victory to them over the enemies and they conquered that city.
There are many other sources approved and accepted by Wahabis,
which contain the text of the same incident.
C. Story of River Nile accepting the order of Umar, which Fakhre
Raazi has mentioned in his Tafsir:
It is narrated that during the period of ignorance the flow of
River Nile in Egypt
used to stop every year once and it did not restart till a beautiful female
child was not thrown into it. After the advent of Islam, Amr Aas mentioned this
matter to Umar and Umar wrote on a slab: O flow of Nile,
if you flow by the power of Allah, continue to flow and if you are flowing with
your own power, we are not in need of you. After this slab was thrown into the Nile, it restarted and never stopped again.
D- Story of earthquake in Medina
and fear of the whip of Umar, which is mentioned by Fakhre Raazi:
An earthquake started in Medina.
Umar hit the earth with his whip and said: O earth, take it easy by the
permission of Allah, and the earth fell quiet and after that no earthquake ever
occurred in Medina.
E- Story of fire accepting the order of Umar:
There was a fire in some houses of Medina. Umar wrote as follows on a slab: O
fire, stop by the command of Allah, and threw in into the fire and the fire was
There are many other instances also, which are mentioned in Ahle
Sunnat sources among merits of companions and none are objected to. So it is
necessary to ask Abu Shawarib Wahabi: Why have you not raised objection against
any of them?

Among the Wahabi satellite networks, the most active against Shia,
is the most popular of them in the world having broadcasting center in London and named as Al-Mustaqila,
which has in recent years, unleashed widespread propaganda against Shia.
This network, before the arrival of ‘Days of Fatima’ in 1386
solar year, for a long time and through widespread propaganda in form of subtitles,
day and night, in all their programs, laid great emphasis on this topic. They
announced: This year we shall invite a group of religious experts to once and for
all prove false the claim of Shia regarding the martyrdom of Fatima, daughter
of the Messenger of Allah (s). These claims would be refuted and we will prove
that Shia do not even have a single authentic report to prove their stance. In this
way we will put an end to the annual Azadari ceremonies during ‘Days of Fatima’.
Some days before announcing its program, this network announced: If
from the Shia one can represent them to defend the claim of Shia about the
martyrdom of Lady Fatima (s), we welcome him to take part in these programs and
Senior Shia personalities were informed of this, because this
network was instigating the religious sentiments of Shia and Sunni and creating
differences in Muslim society. Initially they did not pay attention and overlooked
the poisonous publicity of this network; but when this network brought a
scholar-looking man disguised as a Shia to make false attributions to Shia, it
was from this point that some supreme jurists (Maraja Taqlid) and senior
personalities of religious seminaries of Qom, including His Eminence, Ayatullah
Uzma Makarim Shirazi, decided to depute Ayatullah Dr, Husaini Qazwini to this
network and inform its viewers about the true beliefs of Shia and also participate
in this debate to neutralize the recent conspiracy of Wahabis in creating
controversy between Shia and Sunni and present the traditional reports proving
the martyrdom of Lady Fatima Zahra (s) in that program before all the Muslims
of the world.
The objections mentioned in that programs with perfect impudence
and audacity, regarding the martyrdom of Lady Zahra (s), were in fact not
objections, but audacity and insult to the holy being of the Holy Prophet (s).
It was nonsensical talk, which came from a Wahabi participant in this debate,
named Abu Shawarib from Egypt:
This Mohsin, which Shia say that the Messenger of Allah (s) named
as Mohsin and who was martyred during the attack on the house of Fatima. How the Prophet came to know about the birth of
this child years before the event and he named him Mohsin? Did anyone inform
him about it or that the Prophet was having facility of sonography that he saw
this child in the womb and also named him as Mohsin.
Below we present some replies of our respected teacher Ayatullah
Dr, Husaini Qazwini, which were set forth in this program:
