Fatimah al-Zahra (S), wife of imam Ali (A), was the youngest daughter of the holy prophet Mohammad (P), about whom the holy prophet (P) said:

"Surely, God will be angered by Fatimah's displeasure and will be pleased by her pleasure". [1]

It shows that with whomever Zahra (S) is annoyed Almighty Allah is also annoyed, that is why Fatima Zahra (S) is not just a daughter of the prophet of Islam similar to the other daughters of him; rather, she has a unique divine position in Islam.
On the occasion of Zahra's martyrdom, it must be mentioned that "Lady Fatima (S) is the dearest person to the prophet (P)" [2] and "if someone utters Salawāt upon her, God will forgive him and lead him to my position in paradise." [3] About the merits of her it is really important that all the eleven imams (A) are the descendants of the lady Zahra (S) and the prophet Mohammad (P). Due to this fact Lady Zahra (S) says

"We - Ahl al-Bayt- are God’s agents amongst people, we have been chosen by God, and we have been endowed with His holiness." [4]


Lady Zahra (S) based on her divine knowledge says:

"the Ahl al-Bayt- are God’s agents amongst people who have been chosen by God" [5]

Fatima (S) as one of the household of the prophet (P) is infallible as a result his sayings are different from the normal sayings of the others. She as the infallible daughter of the prophet (P) not only must be respected by all Muslims but also must be obeyed and followed by the Muslims.

On the occasion of Zahra's martyrdom, it must be mentioned that "Lady Fatima (S) is the dearest person to the prophet (P)" [2] and "if someone utters Salawāt upon her, God will forgive him and lead him to my position in paradise." [3] About the merits of her it is really important that all the eleven imams (A) are the descendants of the lady Zahra (S) and the prophet Mohammad (P)


At the end of this article it could be the best choice to narrate one of the very nice and meaningful moral saying of lady Zahra (S) in which she tells her son, Imam Hassan (S), that

"My dear son, always place your neighbors before your own family." [6]

Peace be upon the prophet Mohammad (P) and his great infallible daughter lady Fatimah al-Zahra (S), the great teachers of the mankind throughout the history.
