Sayings of Holy Lady Fatima
Praise and Eulogy is for God for the blessing and bounties which He has bestowed. And thanks to HIM upon what He revealed. And Praise is for HIM upon the common boons and blessings which He bestowed upon His servants without their request And upon the comprehensive and complete blessings which He granted to all and sundry and gave it to us, consecutively. Those graces and favours which are uncountable. And are irredeemable and uncompensatable due to their plentifulness of number. And the imagination of their end is out of the reach of human mind. He invited the servant to thankfulness for the sake of the consecutive and continuous enhancement of blessings. And opened the door of eulogy and Praise upon them so that He may make his favours and beneficences great and plentiful for them.
I testify that there is no god except the sole and matchless God. And the rectification of the singleness of God is a word that God has declared sincerity it's reality, and made the hearts the centre of it's contact and union. And has made the specifications and research of the oneness of God's station obvious and evident in the light of meditation. The God Who can not be seen by the eyes and tongues are unable and baffled to describe His virtues and attributes. And the intelligence and apprehension of man is helpless and destitute from the imagination of his nature. God made all the beings without previous matter and sample and shape and pattern. And made them wear the dress of life by His main and might and created them according to His Devine will and Intention short of it that He might have needed their creation or have wished any benefit for Himself from their shaping and sketching except this that he wanted to give a proof of His wisdom and make the mankind aware about His obedience and submission and invited them to his servitude and worship and make His Invitation grand and ostentatious.
God fixed the reward for His obedience and torment for His insubordination and disobedience so that He may restrain His servants from His wrath and fury and lead them to His paradise.
And I testify that my father Mohammad is the messenger and the servant of God. And God selected and chose him before appointing him at the post of Prophethood. And He named him before choosing and selecting him. And chose him before sending and delegating him. Then all the creations were hidden and covered in the covers of unseen and were hidden amid the screen and curtain of fear and fright and stayed near the last and final border of non-existence for God was aware of and knew the end of matters and because of His encompassing the incidents of times and ages and His knowledge of the predestines. God chose him so that he may complete and finalise His matter and Implement His order and materialise His decrees and predestines. God appointed him so that he may complete and finalize His matter and implement His order and materialize His decrees and predestinates. God saw nations and groups had various different sects in their religion and scattered and staying on the verge of the fires of differences, busy with their idol worshipping. They denied God with all the signs and symbols of Him. So God illuminated the darkness through my father Mohammad and removed the darkness from their hearts, removed (cured) the blindness of the eyes. My father stood up with guidance among the people. And saved them from perversion and aberration, and turned their blindness into enlightenment and guided them towards the firm religion, and called them to the straight path. You, the servants of God, are the ones to maintain His injunctions and prohibitions, and the carriers of His religion, and His revelation, and the trustees of God upon your souls, and the propagators of His religion among the other nations.

You the servants of God, are the ones to maintain His injunctions and prohibitions, and the carriers of His religion, and His revelation, and the trustees of God upon your souls, and the propagators of His religion among the other nations.
Oh the servants of God! Know the real leader from God is present among you and the commitment has previously been made to you and the remaining and left over of the prophet hood has been appointed for your guidance. That is the speaking book of God the truthful Quran, and a beaming and gleaming light, in which all the secrets and facts about the completion of man and his prosperity have been exhibited and illuminated. It guides from darkness towards light of guidance. It s followers are the subject of envoy of others.
The book of God is the guide of it's followers towards the pleasure of God. Heeding it leads to the salvation. The enlightened and conspicuous evidences and proofs of God can be obtained through it; as well as the meaning of His intentions and fear invoking constraining prohibitions; and , His sufficing testimonies and conspicuous arguments, and desired virtues and allowed endowments and gifts and obligatory divine laws.
God made the faith for you as a purity from polytheism. And prayer is the cause of your getting away from arrogance. And rendered alms for the purity of your soul and flourishment and expansion of your sustenance. And rendered fasting for the maintenance and firmness of your sincerity. And God set pilgrimage for the consolidation and reinforcement of the religion. God executed and rendered justice for the sake of putting together and harmonization of the hearts. And the subordination and obedience of us (the holy family) for the security of society's system, and Imams as a safety from disunity. And Jihad the honour and glory for Islam and abjectness and humbleness for the infidels and the hypocrites. And patience as a help for getting reward. And commanding goodness and forbidding evil for the amendment and correction of society and the public. And kindness to parents as a protection to His wrath and displeasure. And joining and connecting with the kinship and cognation, the cause of lengthening of life. And retaliation as the security of blood. And vows as a medium for forgiveness. And the correct use of weights measure a medium for stopping from selling less. And prohibition of alcohol the cause of taking distance from contaminations. And prohibition of false accusation of adultery a protection for avoiding the curse. And refraining from theft for the sake of positiveness and affirmation for modesty. And prohibited polytheism for the sake of sincerity in adoration and worship.
Certainly, a messenger has come to you from among yourselves; grievous to him is your falling into distress, excessively solicitous respecting you; to the believers compassionate, merciful. So if you assay and recognise him you will find he is my father not the father of your women. and the brother of my cousin not that of your men. And how nice a relation I have to him. So he propagated his mission. He always used to turn his face from the polytheists. And fought against them till he beat them up. He would invite people towards God by wisdom, and beautiful admonition. He broke the idols and scattered the aggregation of polytheists in a way that they fled, so that finally the hidden secret of oneness of God became manifested by him. And he made the logic of religion reach the people and settled down the foam of the camels of satan and turned the slogan yelling of those devils silent. And downed the agents of hypocrisy and mutual commitments of the infidels got dissolved till such time that, you spoke to a group of enlightened and modest men with the words of oneness of God and sincerity.
You were on the edge of a fire ditch, and were a cup of drink and the morsel of a greedy one and a firebrand of every hasty one and were being trampled on (by other nations) and drank from the contaminated waters gathered over in ditches and your energy (food) was (secured by) the leaves of trees and desert grass. And for your abjectness and abasement you were always afraid that those around you might abduct you in the winking of an eye. So, God liberated you through my father Mohammed. In spite of it that he was involved and at war against the intrepid and the hungry wolves of Arab and the stubborn refractories of the people of the books (Jews and Christians). Whenever his opponents would lit the fire of war, God extinguished it to your benefit.
Imam Hassan said: “On the Friday night I saw my mother standing in her arch of prayer. She was continuously kneeling and performing prostration till the dawn broke. I would hear her pray for the faithful men and women, but she did not at all pray for herself. I said, Oh mother why did you not pray for yourself like you prayed for others? so she replied, Oh my son, first thy neighbour and there after your own house.”
The Prophet asked Fatima “what is the thing which is a blessing for woman?” She said: “She must not see a (strange) man and a man must not see her.”
One day a lady came to Fatima said 'I have a weak old mother who does not know a few problems about her prayers. She has sent me towards you to ask you.” Fatima replied to her queries. And the number of her queries reached to ten and Fatima replied to all her questions. Then she felt ashamed asking so many questions and said, 'Oh daughter of the Prophet, 'I do not put you to more inconvenience than this.' Fatima said, 'Ask me what you do not know. Have you ever seen a person who is one day hired to carry a heavy thing to the roof top from ground for a thousand dinnars of gold and he may feel himself tired.' She said 'No'. Fatima said, 'I have been hired by God to get a wages which if the space between the earth and sky is filled up with pearls still would be more than it for each of the questions I may answer you. Therefore, I deserve it that I must not feel tired exhausted.'
Oh God! Belittle me in my eyes and glorify and magnify Your station to me. And inspire me Your obedience and the practice which may cause Your pleasure and the shunning and evading from things (matters) which are the cause of Your wrath, oh the most merciful of all! Oh God! Content me with the sustenance you have granted me. And till such time that you keep me alive, hide me and make me sound and prosperous. And forgive me and take pity upon me when I die. Oh God! Do not help me in something that you have not predestined for me. And facilitate the achievement of that thing which you have predestined for me. Oh God! Bestow upon my parents and all those persons who have rights of their blessings and beneficences upon me, the best of Your rewards. Oh my God, spare me the leisure and respite for the object for which You have created me. And do not let me be busy and absorbed in my own commitments. And do not torment me when I ask forgiveness. And do not deprive me of what I yearn and question you for.
The person who smells the sweet fragrance of the grave of the Prophet so what if he does not smell any other fragrance for long times to come?
Agonies and anguishes and grief poured upon me in such a way that had they poured upon days those would have turned into nights.
The dust of sorrow covered the space of sky and the sun has faded and the bright day turned bleak. The earth has become dark and gloomy after the death of the Prophet Woe! Alas! what the earth will have much of Jolting upon being separated and parted from him. It is meritorious and befitting that the east and west of the world may weep upon the parting of Prophet and the persons of Muzzir tribe and all of they rest of the Yemen tribes shed tears.
And the great magnificent mountain of the existence and the hidden and covered Kaba (House of GOD) and its pillars should shed tears. Oh last of the prophets, whose light is the source of blessing for the worlds inhabitants, Be the salutation and blessings of God the revealer of Holy Quran upon you. After you inequities took shape and variant voices were raised so that if you were present and supervising all these differences and deviations would not have taken place. You went from among us and now our condition is like the earth which becomes devoid of the beneficial rains. And your nation upset the order and discipline of matters. So be a witness and do not let their matter get out of your sight.
