Lessons from the Life of Bibi Fatima Zehra SA
1. Be Kind to Your Parents:
Sayyada Fatima(a.s.) would speak with her mother
Sayyada Khadija while she was in her womb to keep her
company because the women of Makkah had boycotted her.
Sayyada Fatima(a.s.) would clean the Prophet’s wounds
after the Makkans injured him with stones. Sayyada Fatema (a.s.)

“the light of my eyes and the delight of my heart” in
the event of the Kisa.
10.Give in the way of Allah without expecting reward or thanks:
Sayyada Fatima(a.s.) and her family gave away their meals
three days in a row to the poor without asking for any reward
while they themselves remained hungry. This event led to

designed that would cover her body.
15. Never trust the enemies of Islam:
Sayyada Fatima(a.s.) asked certain people not to be allowed to
come to her burial and her exact burial place has been kept a secret.
The Prophet (s) said, “Fatima is part of me and she is my heart
and the soul which is between my two sides.”
The Prophet (s) said, “Fatima is the joy of my heart, and
her sons are the fruit of my soul.”
She was indeed one of the greatest Islamic personalities
that had ever existed on this earth
It is said that Prayer is like a beautiful flower and
the Tasbeeh of Sayeda Fatima(a.s.) gives this beautiful flower
