FATIMAH AZ ZAHRA' : COMING BACK WITH AKHIRAT



Suaid Ibn Ghaflah said: Ali Bin Abi Taalib(May Allah be pleased with him) became hungry one day and in need of food.

Therefore, he asked Fatimah (May Allah be pleased with her) to go to her father, the Prophet (Peace be upon him) to ask him for food.

So she went to her father, and Umm Ayman (May Allah be pleased with her) was there at the time. Fatimah (May Allah be pleased with her) knocked on the door..

The prophet (Peace be upon him) told Umm Ayman (May Allah be pleased with her): "Indeed this is the knocking of Fatimah, and she has come at a time which she does not regularly come in".

When Fatimah (May Allah be pleased with her) entered upon the prophet (Peace be upon him), she said: "O Prophet of Allah, the food of the angels is tahleel (Saying La Ilaha Illa Allah), tasbeeh (Saying Subhan Allah) and tahmeed (saying Alhamdulillah), so what is our food?"

He replied: "I swear by him who has sent me with the truth that a fire has not been lit in my house for thirty days! And we have received some goats, so if you will, I'll order for you five goats, and if you will, I will teach you five words which Jabriel (Peace be upon him) has taught me".

She said: "Teach me the words which Jabriel (Peace be upon him) has taught you".

He said: "Say: O Allah you are the first of the first, O Allah you are the last of the last, O Allah you are the lord of unbreakable might, O Allah you are the one who has mercy on the poor, O Allah you are the most merciful of the merciful".

Fatimah (May Allah be pleased with her) said: So I left and entered upon Ali, in which he asked: "What happened?"

She replied:"I left you for dunya (the worldy life) and I came back with akhira (the hereafter).

Ali (May Allah be pleased with him) said: "This is the best of your days"
