This fifth instalment of a series of Qiswah’s ladies-only talks will relate the story of Fatimah, the daughter of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w.
Fatimah Az Zahra (r.a) was the fourth and youngest daughter of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. and Khadijah (r.a). Fatimah (r.a) inherited the Prophet’s wisdom and determination as well as his devotion and worship to Allah.
Fatimah (r.a) grew up in poverty because of the hardships the Prophet s.a.w. faced. After the migration to Madinah, Fatimah (r.a) was married off to Ali ibn Abu Talib (r.a), the Prophet’s cousin. After marriage, she continued to lead a simple life with her husband who laboured hard all day long to earn his livelihood. The couple were known for their generosity and piety.
The Prophet s.a.w mentioned that there were four women who were the best to ever exist in the world. They were Mary (the mother of Prophet Isa a.s.), Asiyah (the wife of Pharoah who nurtured Prophet Moses), Khadijah (the Prophet’s s.a.w. first wife) and Fatimah Az-Zahra, his beloved daughter.
Join us as and we delve into stories relating the life of a special lady lovingly referred to by many as The Light of Prophet - Fatimah Az-Zahra.
