Q: Is the following true? Its going around on bbm.
On the night of the wisaal of Sayida Fathima Zahra RA seated at her bedside was Hazrat Ali RA. She requested him to make a promise to fulfill two of her wishes,one was that whatever Imam Hasan and Imam Husain do he must not lift his hand on them and secondly she has a piece of paper kept which he must bury with her but he must not read what’s in the paper. Hazrat Ali RA agreed to the first condition but refused on the second one until she told him what’s written in it. Sayida Fathima Zahra said to him ” when your propasal of marrige came I refused it at first,then Hazrat Jibraeel AS descended and said to the Holy Prophet salalahu alayhiwslm that Allah is prepared to give jannat and all it wealth for this nikah to take place but I refused that as well then Allah said to the Holy Prophet Salalahu Alayhiwslm ask her whatever she wants we prepared to give for this nikah to take place so I said to my father ” I see you cry for your ummah the only thing I want is they be forgiven ” Immedietly Hazrat Jibraeel AS descended with that piece of paper on which is written in letters of light ” Allah forgives the ummah in exchange for Sayida Fathima Zahra’s rah nikah to Hazrat Ali RA ” so on the day of Qayamat when the ummah will be suffering I will present this piece of paper before Allah and say ” For my nikah to be legal the mehr has been paid in exchange for the forgiveness of the ummah ” ( Sayidina Bibi Fathima Zahra RA made wisaal on the 3rd of Ramadan Shereef. May Allah Always Be Pleased with Her. She is Truely Queen And Mother of Muslims. May we try to strive toward an inkling of her wisdom as we will never equal the maqaam of a grain of sand that has nisbat with a Mubarak grain of sand that had nisbat with her Mubarak feet of Janaat!
