Forty Traditions from Hazrat Zahra (sa)

اربعون حديثاً عن فاطمة الزهراء عليها السلام

1. Praise & Eulogy Is for Allah for the blessing & bounties which He has bestowed. And thanks to Him upon what He revealed (to His servants) And Praise Is for Him upon the common boons & blessings which He bestowed upon His servants without their request And upon the comprehensive & complete blessings which He granted to all & sundry & gave It to us, consecutively. Those graces & favors which are uncountable.

And are Irredeemable & not compensable due to their plentiful-ness of number. And the Imagination of their end is out of the reach of human mind.

He invited the servant to thankfulness for the sake of the consecutive & continuous enhancement of blessings. And opened the door of eulogy & Praise (of Allah) upon them so that He may make his favors & beneficences great & plentiful for them.' 1

1- اَلحَمدُ لِلّهِ عَلی ما أَنعَمَ، وَلَهُ الشُّکرُ عَلَی مَا أَلهَمَ، وَالثنآءُ بِما قَدَّمَ،مِن عُمُومِ نِعَم اِبتَدَأها وَسُبُوغِ آلاءٍ أَسداها، وَ تَمامِ نِعَم وَالاها،جَمَّ عَنِ الإِحصاءِ عَدَدُها،وَنَأی عَنِ الجَزاءِ أَمَدُها،وَتَفاوَتَ عَنِ الدراکِ أَبدُها،وَنَدَبَهُم لاستِزَادَتِها بِاشُّکرِ لا تَّصالِها،وَاستَحمَدَ إلَی الخَلائِقِ بِإجزالِها وَثَنّی بِالنَّدبِ اِلی أَمثالِها. (أعيان الشيعه –الطبع الجديد-ج1 ص315)

2. I testify that there is no Deity (Lord) except the sole & matchless Allah. And the testification of the singleness of Allah is a word that Allah has declared sincerity (as) its reality, & made the hearts the center of its contact & union. And has made the specifications & research of the oneness of Allah's station obvious & evident In the light of meditation. The Allah Who cannot be seen by the eyes & tongues are unable & baffled to describe His virtues & attributes. And the intelligence & apprehension of man is helpless & destitute from the imagination of his lowness. 2

2- أَشهَدُ أَن لاإِلهَ اِلَّااللهُ وَحدَهُ لا شَريکَ لَهُ، کَلِمَةٌ جُعِلَ الإخلاصُ تَأويلَها، وَضُمِّنَ القُلُوبُ مَوصُولَها، وَأَنارَ فِي التَّفکيرِ مَعقُولها، اَلمُمتَنِعُ مِنَ الأبصارِ رُويَتُهُ، وَمِنَ الأَلسُنِ صِفَتُهُ، وَمِنَ الأَوهامِ کَيفِيَّتُهُ. (أعيان الشيعه –الطبع الجديد-ج1 ص315)

Oh my Allah, spare me the leisure & respite for the object for which you have created me. And do not let me be busy & involved (absolutely) in my commitments. And do not torment me when I ask forgiveness. And do not deprive me of what I yearn & question you for. 36

37- اَللّهُمَّ کافِ عَنّي وَالِدَيَّ وَکُلَّ مَن لَهُ نِعمَةٌ عَليَّ خَيرَ مُکافاتِکَ،اَللّهُمَّ فَرَّغنی لِما خَلَقتَنی لَهُ وَلا تُشغِلني بِما تَکَفَّلتَ لي بِهِ وَلا تُعَذَّبنی وَاَنَا اَستَغفِرُکَ وَلا ترحرمنی وَاَنَا أَسأَلُکَ. (أعيان الشيعة-الطبع الجديد- ج1 ص323)

38. Underlying are the rhymes which Hazrat Zahra (sa) recited upon the mourning of Prophet's (S) demise.

'The person who smells the sweet fragrance of the grave of the Prophet (S) so what if he does not smell any other fragrance for long times to come?

Agonies & anguishes & griefs poured upon me in such a way that had they poured upon days those would have turned into nights. (Bleak, dark & bewildering). 37

38- ما انشدتهُ (ع) فیِ رثاء الرَّسُولِ صلی الله عليه وآله:

ماذا عَلی مَن شَمَّ تُربَةَ اَحمَد

اَن لا يَشُمَّ مَدَی الزَّمانِ غَوالِيا

صُبَّت عَلَيّ مَصائِبُ لوأنَّها

صُبَّت عَلَی الأَيّامِ صِرنَ لَيالِيا (اعلام النساء – ج4 ص113)

39. The dust of sorrow covered the space of sky & the sun has faded & the bright day turned bleak. The earth has become dark & gloomy after the death of the Prophet (S) woe! Alas! What the earth will have much of Jolting upon being separated & parted from him (S)?

It is meritorious & befitting that the east & west of the' world may weep upon the parting of Prophet (S) & the persons of Muzzir tribe & all of the rest of the men tribes shed tears;

And the great magnificent mountain of the existence & the hidden & covered Kabaah (House of Allah) & its pillars should shed tears.

Oh the terminator & finalize of the (series of) prophets! The light of whom is the source of blessing for the world's inhabitants, Be the salutation & blessings of Allah the descended of Holy Quran upon you. 38

39- ايضاً:

أغبِرَ افاقُ السَّماءِ وَکُوَّرَت شَمسُ النَّهارِوَأُظلِمَ العَصرانِ
فَالأَرضُ مِن بَعدِ النَّبِیّ کَئيبَةٌ أَسفاً عَلَيهِ کَثيرَة الرَجفانِ
فَليَبکِهِ شَرقُ البِلادِ وَغَربُها وَلتَبکِهِ مضروَکل يمانِ
وَليَبکِهِ الطودُ العَظيمُ جودَه وَالبَيتُ ذُوالأَستارِ وَالأَرکانِ
يَا خاتم الرُّسلِ المُبارَکَ ضوؤُهُ صَلَّی عَلَيکَ مُنزِلُ القُرآنِ

(اعلام النساء- ج4 ص113)

40. Following you (Prophet (S)) inequities (intrigues & revolts) took shape & variant voices were raised so that if you were present & supervising (things) all these differences & deviations would not have taken place.

You setoff (on the journey of eternity) from among us & now our condition is like the earth which becomes devoid of the beneficial rains. And your nation upset the order & discipline of matters. So be a witness & do not let their matter get out of your sight. 39

40- وايضاً:

قَد کانَ بَعدَکَ اَنباءٌ وَهَنبَثَةٌ لَوکُنتَ شاهِدَها لَم تَکثُرِالخَطبُ

إنّا فَقَدناکَ فَقدَ الأَرضِ وَابِلَها وَاختَلَّ قَومُکَ فَأشهَد هُم وَلا تَغِب

(اعلام النساء- ج4 ص113)
