On the Day when the oppressed shall bite their hands (in fear);
when the oppressors shall be gathered in humiliation and lowliness, remembering
their disgraceful and shameful deeds:
Then every one of them shall review his file, which is packed with
oppression against his chosen worshippers. On that Day shall every human,
whatever color, creed, faith, and his deeds may be shall be gathered... no one
will be left behind... even the fetus who was the victim of abortion shall come
that Day to present his case...
Then the great personality of Lady Zahra (A.S.) shall become
manifest to every soul...
Following are several narrations reported by Ahlul-Bayt (A.S.)
regarding Fatima (A.S.) on the Last Day:
Hakim reported in Al-Mustadrak v.2, p.153 that Ali (P.B.U.H.)
"I heard the Prophet say:
"On the Day of Rising, a
caller shall announce from beyond the veil: "O gathered people, lower your
eyes so that Fatima, the Daughter of Muhammad, may pass."
This narration has also been reported by: Ibn Al-Athir in Usd al-Ghaba v.5, p.523; Ganji Shafiee in Kifayat At-Talib p. 212; Dhahabi in Mizan al-Etedal v.2, p.18; and by Hamwini in Yanabi' al-Mawaddah p.104, who added the following to
it: Ali (A.S.) reported that the Prophet said:
"On the Day of Rising, a
caller shall call from the sole of the Throne:
"O people of Resurrection,
cast your eyes down, so that Fatima Bint Muhammad may pass-while holding
Al-Hussain's shirt, which will (still) be saturated with blood.' She will then
embrace the leg of the Throne and say:
"O (Allah), You are the
Omnipotent and Just; pass the judgment between me and those who killed my
son." (The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) added): "Then He shall judge according
to my Sunnah, by the Lord of K`aba, Fatima will then say:
"O Allah! Grant me
intercedence for everyone who cried for his disaster; Allah will then grant her
intercedence for them."
Abu Nu'aym in Dala'el al-Nobowwah, Ibn Hajar in al-Sawa'iq
al-Muhriqah, and others have reported that Abu Ayuoub Ansari said:
"The Messenger of Allah said:
A caller shall call from the sole of the Throne: O gathered people, lower your
heads and cast your eyes down so that Fatima Bint Muhammad may pass on the Path.’
He added: 'She then passes accompanied by seventy thousand Huri Al-Een, as if
they were a flashing light."
Many Sunni Scholars have reported that Allah's Messenger stated
Lady Fatima Zahra shall arrive at the gathering place (while)
riding Ghadha' or Gusua female camel.
4. Jaber Ibn Abdullah Ansari said:
"I said to Abu Ja'far (Al-Baqir (A.S.)): 'May I be your
sacrifice son of Allah's Messenger; narrate to me a hadith in regard to the
noble traits of your grandmother Fatima, so that if I report it to your Shiites
(followers), they would rejoice at (hearing) it!' Abu Ja'far (A.S.) said: 'My father
told me that my grandfather reported that Allah's Messenger said:
"On the Day of Rising, Minbars
of light shall be erected for the prophets and messengers, of which my Minbar
shall be the highest among all Minbars on that day. Allah will then say:
Deliver a speech,' so I will deliver a speech that none of the prophets or
messengers have ever heard. Then for the successors (of prophets) shall be
erected Minbars of light, and in the middle of these Minbars one shall be
erected for my successor, Ali Ibn Abu Talib, which will be higher than all their
Minbars. Allah will then say:
"Ali, deliver a speech.' So he
will deliver a speech like no successor has ever heard before. Then for the
children of the prophets and messengers shall be erected Minbars of light;
among them shall be a Minbar of light for my two sons, grandsons and the two
flowers of my life (Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain). Then it shall be said to them:
"Deliver speeches." So they will deliver two speeches like none of
the children of the prophets and messengers have ever heard before!
"A caller-Gabriel-shall then
'Where is Fatima Bint Muhammad?'
She (A.S.) will rise..."
(Until he said):
'Allah, the blessed and exalted is
His Name, shall say:
'O people of the gathering; to whom
does honor belong today?'
So Muhammad, Ali, Hassan and Al-Hussain
(A.S.) will say:
'To Allah, The one, The Almighty
'Allah the Exalted will say:
"O people of the gathering:
lower your heads and
cast your eyes down, for this is
towards Paradise.' Gabriel shall
then bring her a female
camel from the female camels of
Paradise; its sides shall be embellished, its muzzle with fresh pearls, and it
shall have a saddle of coral. It shall kneel down in her presence; so she will
ride it. Allah will then send 100, 000 angels to accompany her on her right
side; and 100, 000 angels to accompany her on her left side; and 100, 000
angels to lift her onto their wings until they bring her to the gate of
Paradise. When she is near the gate of Paradise, she will look to her side.
Allah will then say:
"Daughter of My beloved, why
did you look to your side after I gave the command that you enter my
She will say: "My Lord, I
wished that my position would be realized on such a Day!"
Allah will say:
"Daughter of My beloved!
Go back and look for everyone in
whose heart was love for you or for any of your progeny; take their hand and
lead them into paradise!"
Abu Ja'far (A.S.) said: "By
Allah; Jabir, she will pick her Shiites (followers) and those who love her just
like a bird picks good seeds from bad seeds. So that when her Shiites are near
the gate of Paradise, Allah will inspire their hearts to look to their sides;
when they do--- Allah, The Almighty, will say:
My beloved ones, why did you look
around when Fatima, the daughter of my beloved one, interceded for you?'
They will answer: 'Our Lord! We
hoped that our position would be known on such a day!'
Allah will then say: 'My beloved
ones, go back and look for everyone who loved you for your love for Fatima;
Look for everyone who fed you for
the love of Fatima;
Look for everyone who clothed you
for the love of Fatima;
Look for everyone who gave you a
drink for the love of Fatima;
Look for everyone who prevented
(Gheeba) backbiting from being done against you for the love of Fatima...
Take their hands and lead them into
5. Ibn Abbas said: "I heard
Amir Al-Mo'mineen, Ali (A.S.) say:
Once the Messenger of Allah entered
the house of Fatima and found her in a sad mood. So he said: 'What has made you
Fatima replied: 'Father, I remembered
the gathering (Day), and people standing naked on the Day of Resurrection!'
He said: Daughter, surely it will
be a great Day. But Gabriel informed me that Allah, Glorified and Exalted is
He, said that the first one upon whom the ground shall be split opened is me,
then your husband, Ali Ibn Abu Talib (A.S.); then Allah shall send Gabriel
accompanied by seventy thousand angels and he will erect on your grave seven
domes of light, after which Israfil will bring you three garments of light and
stand by your head and say to you:
"O Fatima Bint Muhammad, rise
towards your gathering place."
"You (Fatima) shall then rise
secure from fear and veiled (in privacy). Israfil will hand you the garments
and you will wear them. Rafael will then bring you a female camel of light; its
muzzle shall be made of fresh pearls and on it shall be a howdah of gold. You
will ride it and Rafael shall lead it by its muzzle while seventy thousand
angels holding the banners of glorification accompany you.
When the caravan hurries with you,
seventy thousand Huris shall receive you rejoicing at seeing you; while every
one of them will be holding a censer of light from which the fragrance of
incense is spread without fire. They shall be wearing crowns of jewels
embellished with green chrysalides."
6. Bihar v.10, on the authority of
Amali (by Saduq) reports that Imam Baqir (A.S.) said: "I heard Jabir Ibn Abdullah
Ansari say: Allah's Messenger said:
"On the Day of Rising, My daughter,
Fatima, shall arrive riding a
female camel from among
the camels of Paradise-to her right
shall be seventy thousand
angels and to her left shall also
be seventy thousand angels; Gabriel will be holding its muzzle and calling with
the loudest of voices: 'Cast down your eyes so that Fatima Bint Muhammad may
"Then shall no prophet,
messenger, truthful one, or martyr remain without casting their eyes down until
Fatima passes... Then a call shall come from the side of Allah, the Exalted:
My beloved one and the daughter of
my beloved one; ask Us and you shall be given (whatever you wish), and
intercede, your intercedence shall be accepted. By my Honor and Exaltation, the
oppression of no oppressor shall pass My (judgement) today.
She (Fatima) will then say:
"O Allah, My Master;
My progeny, My Shiites (followers),
the Shiites of my progeny, those who love me and those who love my
She will then hear a call from
Allah's side, may His Name be exalted:
"Where are Fatima's progeny,
her Shiites, those who love her, and those who love her progeny?" They
will then come forward, surrounded by angels of mercy, and Fatima will lead
them into Paradise."
