Ziyarah for Lady Fatimah al-Zahra

Ziyarah for the Mistress of the Women of the Worlds, Lady Fatimah al-Zahra, may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon her
Translated by Badr Shahin

زِيَارَةٌ سَيِّدَةِ النِّسَآءِ الْعَالَمِينَ فَاطِمَةَ الزَّهْرَآءِ (سَلاَمُ ٱللّٰهِ عَلَيْهَا)

While standing in the area between the Noble Prophet’s tomb and minbar (i.e. Garden of Paradise – al-Rawdah), you may visit the tomb of Lady Fatimah al-Zahra, although there is a disagreement about the place of her tomb. Some say that she was buried in the al-Rawdah; others say that she was buried in her house; others say that she was buried in the cemetery known as Jannatul Baqi’. However, the majority of our scholars agree that she should be visited within the area of al-Rawdah, although to visit her at all three of these places is more preferable.

When you stand for the ziyarah of Lady Fatimah al-Zahra’s tomb, recite the following:

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

يَا مُـمْتَحَنَةُ

O the carefully examined one:

اِمْتَحَنَكِ اللهُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكِ قَبْلَ أَنْ يَـخْلُقَكِ

Allah had tried you before He created you (for this worldly life),

فَوَجَدَكِ لـِمَا امْتَحَنَكِ صَابِرَةً،

And thus He found you successfully enduring in that trial.

وَزَعَمْنَا أَنَّا لَكِ أَوْلِيَآءٌ وَمُصَدِّقُونَ

We claim that we are your loyalists and believers,

وَصَابِرُونَ لِكُلِّ مَا أَتَانَا بِهِ أَبُوكِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ،

and standing as regards all that which has been conveyed to us by your father - peace of Allah be upon him and his Household,

وَأَتـىٰ بِهِ وَصِيَّهُ،

And all that which his successor has brought to us.

فَإِنَّا نَسْأَلُكِ إِنْ كُنَّا صَدَّقْنَاكِ

We thus ask you, if we have truly believed you,

إِلاَّ أَلْـحَقْتِنَا بِتَصْدِيقِنَا لَـهُمْ

That you may include us with those who believe in them all,

لِنُبَشِّرَ أَنْفُسَنَا بِأَنَّا قَدْ طَهُرْنَا بِوِلاَيَتِكِ.

So that we may feel happy that we have been purified on account of our loyalty towards you.

It is recommended to add the following:
