*Four Complete Women*
🌸 Note 1⃣8⃣
Fatima bint Mohammed (ﷺ) (فاطمة بنت محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم)
💎 Fatima bint Mohammed (ﷺ) The word ‘Fatima’ comes from (فطم) – which means protection from the hellfire, subhan Allah❗ Fatima is the youngest daughter of the Prophet (ﷺ) and she is the most beloved to him. This shows you that love is from Allah (swt), it’s not in your hands.
💎 She had another name – (الزهراء) – the 🌹🌹flower🌹🌹
As if she’s the flower of the Prophet (ﷺ)
💎 She was born one or two years before the prophethood.
💎 The year of grief was when Khadija (ra) passed away, so who was taking care of the Prophet (ﷺ)? Fatima (ra) because all the other daughters were married.
💎 The other title given to her was (أم أبيها) – *‘mother of her father’* because she used to take care of him until he died. Even her walk was similar to his, subhan Allah❗ *She was complete because she was taking care of her father.* Fatima went through different stages as a daughter, wife, and mother.
🍒 The Prophet (ﷺ) was praying in the Ka’aba and the disbelievers of Quraish were making fun of him and were challenging each other to put dirt between his shoulders. While the Prophet (ﷺ) was prostrating, a man put this dirt on him. When the Prophet (ﷺ) got up, the dirt fell and he remained quiet. Fatima (ra) saw this, removed the dirt from his back, and she talked back at them, though she was young.
🌱 After Khadija (ra) passed away, the Prophet (ﷺ) was told to marry someone in order to take care of him. He married Sawda (ra), she was an old ‘motherly’ woman, and Fatima (ra) agreed to this.
🍒 After the Battle of Badr, many people proposed to her from Abu Bakr (ra), Omar (ra) – who were all rich companions. But there was one who was shy to propose to her because he was poor – Ali bin Abi Talib (ra) – the cousin of the Prophet (ﷺ).
🍒 The Prophet (ﷺ) agreed to Ali (ra) and so she agreed, though he was poor. *A complete woman loves her father, is dutiful to him, wants the happiness of her father, defends him and accepts what he wills.* The other sisters of Fatima (ra) married those who were rich, while she the most beloved married someone poor, though she is the most complete woman, subhan Allah❗
