Mother of Believers, Aisha( رضي الله عنها) said of Fathima (رضي الله عنها) :

“I have not seen any one of God’s creation resemble the Messenger of God more in speech,conversation and manner of sitting than Fatimah, may God be pleased with her. When the Prophet saw her approaching, he would welcome her, stand up and kiss her, take her by the hand and sit her down in the place where he was sitting.” She would do the same when the Prophet came to her. She would stand up and welcome him with joy and kiss him.

Fatimah (رضي الله عنها) was given the title of “azZahraa” which means “the Resplendent One”. That was because of her beaming face which seemed to radiate light. It is said that when she stood for Prayer, the mihrab would reflect the light of her countenance. She was also called “al Batul” because of her asceticism. Instead of spending her time in the company of women, much of her time would be spent in Salat, in reading the Quran and in other acts of ibadah.

May Allah bless Muslim Ummah with sisters like Fathima(رضي الله عنها)
