The book is a study on the life of Infallible “Fatima” the daughter of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.). It offers and inclusive review on the high qualities of her great personality such as chastity, purity, infallibility, deep faith in Allah.
The book also narrates her marriage to Ameerul Mo’minin Ali bin Abi Talib (a.s.), with whom she lived a life of simplicity and asceticism, and so she was an ideal example for Muslim women and indeed, for all Muslims.
Fatima (a.s.) is the highest woman in knowledge, purity, patience, and piety that history has ever known. She was brought up in the house of Revelation and grew in the lap of the greatest Prophet (a.s.), and thus she was the vessel of Imamate and the continuity of Prophethood. She got married to Ameerul Mo’minin Ali bin Abi Talib (a.s.) and lived with him a life of simplicity and asceticism, and so she was an ideal example for Muslim women or, indeed, for all Muslims. However, fate willed for her that she would not live after her father’s death but for a short time because of the oppression and harms she met from the people; though the Prophet (a.s.) had said about her, ‘Fatima is a part of me; whoever harms her harm me.’ But, people denied the truth, deviated from the path of the Mission, and turned him (ImamAli) away from the position of Imamate.The book before you, dear reader, is a study on the life of Infallible Fatima (a.s.), the daughter of Prophet Muhammad (a.s.). Our role in this book was the reviewing and verifying of it stexts and sources.
