Nikah of Hazrat Fatima (RA)

We Should Always Remind Aurselves Of The Marriage Of Fatimah (Radiallahu 'Anha),
The Daughter Of Our Beloved
Prophet Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wassalam
When Ali (Radiallahu 'Anhu) Expressed His intention To Propose For Fatimah (Radiallahu 'Anha)
Prophet Sallallahu Alaihe Wassallam Was Pleased And Asked Him if He Possessed Any Riches. When Ali (Radiallahu 'Anhu) Replied That Apart From A Horse And A Shield He Possessed Nothing, Prophet Sallalahu Alaihe Wassalam Said:-
" A Soldier Must Of Course, Have His Horse. Go And Sell Your Shield."
Ali (radiallahu 'anhu) Sold His Shield For 400 Dirhams, After Which Prophet Sallalahu Alaihe Wassalam Called Bilal (Radiallahu 'anhu) And Asked Him To Bring Some itar Perfume And A Few Other Things And Sent Anas (Radiallahu 'Anhu) To Call Abu Bakr, Uthman, Zubair (Radiallahu 'Anhum) And Some Other Men Of The Ansar. When They Had Arrived..... The Prophet Sallalahu Alaihe Wassalam Recited The Nikah Khutbah, Giving Hadhrat Fathimah (Radiallahu 'Anha) in Nikah To Hadhrat Ali (Radiallahu 'anhu),
He said:- " Bear You All Witness, I Have Given Fathimah To Ali For 400 misqals Of Silver And Ali Has Accepted."
He Then Raised His Head And Made Du’a.
After The Nikah, Dates Were Distributed And When Night Came, Fathimah (Radiallahu 'Anha) Was Sent Without Any Hue Or Cry in The Company Of Umme Aiman (Radiallahu 'anha).
The Prophet Sallalahu Alaihe Wassalam Visited Them, Made Du’a For Them, And Asked For A Basin Of Water in Which He Blew After Reciting The Three Quls. He Then Sprinkled This Water On Both, Hadhrat Ali (Radiallahu 'Anhu) And Hadhrat Fatimah (Radiallahu 'anha).
The Prophet Sallalahu Alaihe Wassalam Gave His Daughter A silver bracelet,
2 yemeni sheets,
4 mattresses,
one blanket,
one pillow,
one cup,
one hand grinding mill,
one bedstead,
A Small water skin
And An Earthen Pitcher.
And Advised Them That The indoor Work Should Be Done By Hadhrat Fatimah (Radiallahu 'Anha) And The Outdoor Work By Hadhrat Ali (Radiallahu 'Anhu).

[Book Of Sunnah - Mufti- Salejee.]

This is The " Ideal Wedding" which we should all be striving towards.

It Would Be To The Benefit Of Many if We Start instilling This in The Minds Of Children, Especially Young Girls.

We Should Encourage Them Towards Totally Following The Sunnah, And Not Just Doing So Selectively
-Eg:- By Following Whatever is Easy To Follow, And Then Emulating Other People in Others Aspects Of Life.
By Becoming The Slaves Of Our Nafs And Shaitaan....
Eg:- By Hosting Unnecessary And Elaborate Functions, We Are Only Hampering The Imaan And Futures Of Children:
How Can We Expect Them To Embark On the ibaadat which Nikah is, when this ibaadat begins with a series of sins?

It should be the pleasure of Allah [Azwa Jall] which we hope to attain, not the pleasure of misguided family members and friends.

One should endure their displeasure, rather than face the displeasure of Allah [Azwa Jall] 'Inshallah'.

  1. You have to give according to time.
    The following things are useless in this 21st century.
    one cup,
    one hand grinding mill,
    one bedstead,
    A Small water skin
    And Earthen Pitcher

    1. Whatever was given, was not Jahez/ dowry but rather it was purchased by the money Ali RA got after selling his shield.

  4. جو نکاح سادگی سے کیا جاتا ہے وہ ہمیشہ پائیدار رہتا ہے اور جس میں بناوٹ ہوتی ہے وہ عموما ہمارے سامنے ہے دکھلاوا ہمیشہ دکھلاوا ہوتا ہے۔حضرت علی اور حضرت فاطمہ رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہما کی شادی کتنی پائیدار تھی اسے تاریخ آج بھی یاد کرتی ہے۔یاد رکھیں جو سنت کے زیادہ قریب ہوگا وہی کامیاب اور کامران ہوگا اللہ ہمیں سنت پر عمل پیرا ہونے کی توفیق دے
