Q: Please can you verify the following:
The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “Fatima is part of me and she is my heart and the soul which is between my two sides.”
A: This part of the hadeeth “Fatima is part of me” is established, but “she is my heart and the soul which is between my two sides.” does not appear in any authentic book of hadeeth.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
