 Folders \ Fatima in the Holy Quran 

Fatima in the Holy Quran The Quran presents many sides of the role of the Prophets progeny PBUH in life. And for the importance of this role some Islamic references confirmed" that Allah made quarter of Quran about them PBUH" (1).Abdullah Bin Abbas said:" 300 verses were sent down for Ali especially for him only" (2). The verses which included the progeny AS classified into two sections: a General section where they were they All sharing them similar to the (Altat-heir) purity verse, (Almwaddah) love verse and others. And a Private section specialized for some of them similar to the verses of Watering, redemption, kinship and others.

 Fatima AS in the verse of Purity 
All the texts in the Islamic references agreed on the purity verse specialized for prophets Householders AS. (Allah intends only to remove from you the impurity [of sin], O people of the [Prophet's] household, and to purify you with [extensive] purification.)(3)
The householders are (the Messenger of Allah PBUH, Ali the commander of faithful, Fatima, Hasan and Hussein PBUH). Particularly, the greatest Prophet PBUH has announced them in the verse of purity by his speeches and actions. The prophet SAWA assembled them around him, then he covered them with Yemeni garment then he grabbed the ends of the garment so that no one get confused and includes others in the verse of purity. (4)

Some people unsuccessfully tried to include the wives of the prophet PBUH under the title of the Householders AS. But the tradition which was narrated from Zaid bin Arqam in Sahih Muslim frustrates this failed attempt. Someone asked him:Who are the members of his household? Aren't his wives the members of his family? (this person want to specialize the purity verse on the prophets wives only so Zaid Denied this falsification) Thereupon he said: His wives are the members of his family (but here) the members of his family are those for whom acceptance of Zakat is forbidden. (5) It means those who were included in the purity verse are those who were under the garment and forbidden to accept Zakat.

 Fatima in the Mubahala verse. 
The Almighty Allah said: Then whoever argues with you about it after [this] knowledge has come to you - say, "Come, let us call our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves, then supplicate earnestly [together] and invoke the curse of Allah upon the liars [among us]."(6)

Mubahala in the language means: cursing (7). Meaning that both sides of those who argue each others ask for a curse from Allah on the liar side. And it is once of the must important verses (miracles) which proof the prophecy. And it shows the status of the Householders AS in particular the daughter of the chosen prophet PBUH who brought her with him for Mubahala and he positioned her in the middle between the prophecy and Imamat.

Some people did their best to falsification the meaning of the verse and change its applicability on the Householders AS into empty concepts which has nothing to do with Quran and Sunnah.
Al Allama Altabtabaei (God blesses his soul) said: "It is really wondrous what was mentioned by some commentator when he said: The narrations agreed on that the Prophet (PBUH) selected for Mubahala Ali,Fatima and her two sons (PBUH) and they recognize the word "our women" means Fatima and the word "ourselves" means Ali Only?(8). And then he wanted to include the prophets' wives in the verse." Then Altabtabaei God blesses his soul responded to this opinion falsification saying:" he misunderstood! Because what not supposed to be understood in this verses the word (our women is Fatima) and (ourselves is Ali). But it supposed to mean that he peace be upon him and his progeny did not bring it up as an example but he used it because there is no other meaning for it. And this mean Fatima AS exclusively is the only meaning for "our women", and Ali AS is the only exclusively is the only meaning for "ourselves". And their two kids are the only exclusively meaning for "our sons". And the purpose to use (sons, women, selves) in the verse is the Householders and they are the Householders of the messenger of Allah as pointed at in some traditions after mentioning their gathering around the prophet (PBUH) he said:" O Allah, they are my Householders" the mean of this sentence is: (I couldn’t find anyone to invite but those) (9)

 Fatima in the verse of kinship 
The Almighty said: "And give the relative his right."(10) This verse is specialized on the progeny AS and it came down to Fatima AS privately. Sheikh Alsadoq (RH) narrated: Alrian bin AlSelt said: Imam Al-Retha AS said: when the verse came down to the prophet (PBUH) he said: Bring me on Fatima, then she came. He said: O Fatima, she replied: Yes Messenger of Allah! He said: this is Fadak, it wasn’t taken by war, nor by force. And it is for you amongst all Muslims. I am giving it to you because it is what Almighty Allah ordered me to do. So take it for you and your kids.(11)
Fadak: it is a green land it is two days away from Hejaz and Madina. Allah gave it as a reconciliation tax to the prophet (PBUH). It has a sparkling spring and palm trees. And it’s the same land which Fatima (AS) mentioned when she said: the messenger of Allah presented it to me. Then Abu-Baker said: I request for witnesses on that.(12)

Sheikh Altosei (RH) narrated: Ali bin Asbat said: when Imam Abu-Alhasan Mosa (Alkathem) came to Almahdi, he found him giving back people rights. He (AS) asked him:" for what reason our right not given back?" Almahdi replied: what is it Abu-Alhasan? He (AS) said: when the Almighty Allah eased the conquire of Fadak to Mohammed (PBUH) and he did not take it by war or force. And so Allah the Almighty
Sent down "And give the relative his right." The messenger of Allah did not know who they were (the relatives) so he asked Gabriel (AS) and asked Almighty Allah. Then Allah inspired to him "to give Fadak to Fatima (AS)" later the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) called after her and said: "O Fatima, the Almighty Allah ordered me to give Fadak for you". She replied:" I accept it O messenger of Allah (PBUH) from Allah and you. "Her agents on Fadak remained there during the life of Messenger of Allah. (13)

 Fatima AS in Surat Alkawthar 
The Almighty said: "We have given you Alkawthar (Abundance)" (14) when we study the details of Quran interpretation books, we wont be able to find an express provision explains that Fatima (AS) is the reason behind this chapter of Quran. But its details matches the pure Fatima (AS) because the chapter came down during the death of Abdullah the son of the generous prophet (PBUH) when Al'As bin Wael Alsahmi gloated him (PBUH) and called him -without posterity!- (means curtailed) (15) And for this reason Allah gifts to his chosen beloved (PBUH) has no limits. Allah made his progeny out-numbered other prophets and messengers. And much more blessed and better. And he made the resource for this offspring Fatima (AS). And in about this specialty the messenger of Allah says:" all the females sons (all people) are mortals because their origin is their fathers except the sons of Fatima because I am their origin and I am their father."(16)
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: "Allah made the offspring of every prophet from him, but he made my offspring from Ali." (17) Or "from you"(18)
No-doubt Fatima (AS) is AlKawthar which Almighty Allah gave to his chosen prophet (PBUH). It’s the grace that given to the prophet (PBUH) which disserves to thank Allah for it, to pray for it, and to slaughter (the sacrifice). And the enemy of Messenger of Allah (PBUH) will be without posterity.
This Quranic chapter confirms a cosmic fact which is to test the enemies of messenger of Allah with Infertility and perdition of their offspring.

 Fatima in the verse of commandment of parents 
The Almighty Allah said:"And We have enjoined on man to show fairest (companionship) to his parents. His mother conceived him under compulsion, and she brought him forth under compulsion and his pregnancy (i.e., the time he is in the womb) and his weaning are thirty months. Until, when he reaches full age, and reaches forty years, he says, "Lord! Dispense (to) me that I may thank (You) for Your favor wherewith You have favored me and my parents (both), and that I may do righteousness satisfying You, and make me righteous in my offspring. Surely I repent to You, and surely I am one of the Muslims." (i.e., one who surrenders to Allah) (19)
Jafar bin Mohamed bin Qulaweih (RH) said: Salim bin Makram said: Abi Abdellah Alsadiq (AS) said:" when Fatima got pregnant with Hussain, Gaberiel came to Messenger of Allah (PBUH) and said: Fatima will give a birth to a child who will get killed by your Uma (nation) after you. And when Fatima got pregnant with Hussain she hated it and when she gave a birth she hated to do so. Then Abi Abellah Alsadiq (AS) said: have you seen in your life a mother gives a birth and hates her child? But she hated him because she knew he will get killed"

 Fatima (AS) in the chapter of An-ur (the light) 

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
الله نور السماوات والأرض مثل نوره كمشكاة فيها مصباح المصباح في زجاجة الزجاجة كأنها كوكب دري يوقد من شجرة مباركة زيتونة لا شرقية ولا غربية يكاد زيتها يضيء ولو لم تمسسه نار نور على نور يهدي الله لنوره من يشاء ويضرب الله الأمثال للناس والله بكل شيء عليم

The Almighty Allah said: (Allah is The Light of the heavens and the earth;….)(21)Sheikh AlKulaini Narrated: Imam Alsadiq (AS) in about when the Almighty said: (Allah is The Light of the heavens and the earth the similitude of His Light is as a niche) he said: "It is Fatima (AS) " (wherein is a lamp,)"its AlHasan", (the lamp in a glass,)"its AlHussain" ( the glass as it were a glittering planet"Fatima is a glittering planet among the women of this universe"-kindled from a Blessed tree" it is Ibrahim (AS)", an olive that is neither eastern nor western" Not Jewish and not Christian", whose oil would almost illuminate" the science almost stems out of it", even if no fire touched it, Light upon Light"Imam after Imam"; Allah guides to His Light whomever He decides " Allah guides to the Imams whomever he want", and Allah strikes similitudes for mankind".(22)
