ISLAMIC EDUCATIONThe Life of 14 Infallibles (as)

Gift for Answering Questions

Hazrat Fatima Zahra's (SA) lifestyle (6)

Imam Hasan Askari (as) said:

One day, a woman came to Hadhrat Fatima Zahra(sa) and said: I have a mother who is weak and unable to pray, she has sent me to you to find out the answer to this matter.

After listening to the woman’s explanation, Hadhrat Zahra(sa) gave her an answer, and the woman repeated her question a second time, Hadhrat answered her for the second time.

The woman, as usual, repeated her question over and over until it reached ten times, and Hadhrat Zahra (sa) answered her without any emotion or showing that she was disturbed and bothered, instead she answered her gentlyand compassionately.

After that, the woman felt ashamed and said: I have tired and bothered you, I will not bother you anymore.

Hadhrat Zahra (sa) said:

No, it will not be a problem or inconvenience for me, then she added: It is like if a person is hired to carry a heavy load and take it somewhere, and s/he receives a salary of one hundred thousand dinars for that work, is that a nuisance?! Will s/he feel trouble and inconvenience?

The woman replied by saying: No.

After that Hadhrat Fatima (sa) said: I am your servant for every question I answer, and its reward is more valuable in the sight of Allah than everything in the world.

So, ask whatever you want to ask and for me it is not a cause of discomfort, as I heard from my father, the Messenger of Allah (saww) saying:

Ulemas and Scholars, Shias and our followers will be gathered together on the Day of Judgment (at the time of resurrection), wearing a crown of glory.

Because they have worked hard to guide the servants of Allah in this world, they will receive the grace and mercy of Allah, and they will be given the most valuable gifts and clothes in Paradise…

After that, Hadhrat Zahra (sa) said: O servant of Allah! The value of one of those garments in Paradise is a thousand times more than what exists in this world and is illuminated by the sun.

Because the things of this world, although they seem to have great value; but in fact, they are things that perish and disappear, this is different from the Day of Resurrection and Paradise, where everything that is in it will be safe and will last forever.
