The status of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) and his Holy Progeny is higher than the status of Ka'bah and any one and any thing created by Allah (SAWA). The Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) is the best and the highest among the creatures of Allah (SWT). His holy Progeny are from him and their status is from his highest status.


It is said that Fatima al-Zahra (A) and Imam 'Ali (A) got married in the second year after the migration to Medina, after the Battle of Badr (so approximately 624 AD)

However, biographers do not agree about when Fatima al-Zahra (A) was born. Sunni biographers often say she was born around 605 AD, whereas Shi'i biographers often say she was born around 614-615 AH. There are some other views as well.

So, she would have been around nine or nineteen years old at the time of her marriage.

It seems reasonable that she would have married young since men are eager to seek the daughters of important men for marriage, and it is reported that others had already asked for her hand. But God knows best.

Fatima (AS) is part of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) as he said in the authentic Hadeeth narrated in Shia and Sunni books فاطمة بضعة مني.
- (Saheeh Al-Bukhari, Hadeeth number 3437 and 3483)

- Saheeh Muslim; 4482 and 4483).

Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal; 15539.

Trmithi; 3802 and 3804.

al-Mustadrak ALAL-Saheehain by Al-Haakim Al-Nisabori ; 4747 and 4751. And many other Sunni main books of Hadeeth.

As the status of the Prophet Muhammad is the best and the highest among all the prophets, Fatimah who is part from him is higher in her degree from all the previous prophets. If fact no one can be compared with Fatimah after her father and her husband. She is the best human being after her father and her husband.
