25) Prayers of the Holy Prophet (saw) for Fatimah (sa) and her descendants

67. عن أنس بن مالك رضي الله عنه، قال: دعا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم لفاطمة اللهم!َ إني أعيذها بك و ذريتها من الشيطن الرجيم.

Ans bin Malik (ra) narrates that the Holy Prophet (saw) performed a special prayer for Fatimah (sa), “Oh Allah! I seek your protection for her and her children from the rejected Devil.”

68. عن بريدة رضي الله عنه، قال: فلما كان ليلة البناء قال: يا علي! لا تحدث شيئا حتى تلقانى، فدعا النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم بماء فتوضأ منه ثم أفرغه على عليّ، فقال: اللهم! بارك فيهما و بارك عليهما و بارك لهما في شبلهما.
و فى رواية عنه: و بارك لهما فى نسلهما.

Buraidah (ra) narrates that the Holy Prophet (saw), on the night of Ali (as) and Fatimah’s (sa) wedding, said to Ali (as), “Do not do anything without consulting me.” Then he (saw) asked for water and performed ablution. He (saw) then sprinkled the remaining water on Ali (as) and said, “Oh Allah! Bless their relationship, shower them with blessings and bless both of them regarding their children.”

In another narration also narrated by Buraidah (ra) the words are: “Bless both of them regarding their coming generations.”
