13 – Saintly Women (Part 12) – Fatima az-Zahra: The Mother of Her Father – Shaykh Abdurragmaan Khan


In this podcast Shaykh Abdurragmaan Khan continues on with  the life of Sayyida Fatima az-Zahra (may Allah be pleased with her). She was born in the prophetic household and therefore was molded by both the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) and Our Lady Khadija (may Allah be pleased with her). She was best of females ever created. Lady Fatima was so beloved to the Prophet(peace and blessing be upon him). No one could compare to her or have such a special bond with the Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him). After Lady Khadija passed away Fatima took care of the family like a mother and was given the title “The Mother of her Father”. Lady Fatima’s life revolved around worship. She engaged in abundant prayer, fasting, etc. Sayyiduna Ali Ibn Abi Talib proposing to Lady Fatima was an joyous occasion because it made the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) happy.

This episode is part of the series Saintly Women, with Shaykh Abdurragmaan Khan. In a time when women’s rights are in question, this series provides clear Prophetic guidance on the dignified and critical role of women from the Islamic perspective through the role model of five saintly women. Shaykh Abdurragmaan highlights the lives and lessons of Sayyida Khadija bint Khuwaylid, Sayyida Fatima al-Zahra, Sayyida Asiya, Sayyida Maryam bint Imran, and Sayyida bint Abu Bakr al-Siddiq (may Allah be please with them all).

The lives and lessons of these five saintly women will be covered due to their high virtue and status given in the Qur’an and sunna. The series will extract lessons of guidance from their lives so that Muslim women can take them as role models. It is important for both men and women to know about these saintly women, to follow their virtuous character, and to teach the generations to come how to follow them as role models, especially the girls and young ladies.
