They asked her, "Who are you, mysterious veiled one?" And the Light replied, "I am Her, the Light, being the Teacher of all disciples of the heart. I guide along the blessed eternal Way called Love, to this holy path the knowers call complete surrender. There is nothing other than this way, Love. Truly All is One Sun of Love. Truly. All is One Sun. Love."
Mohamed bin Jareer Altabari Narrated that Ibn Abbas said: A noble man of the Arabs came to the Messenger of Allah SAWA and said: O messenger of Allah, with what were you made better than we are when we were created from the same water? The Messenger of Allah replied: O brother! When Allah, glorified is His name, liked to create us, He said a word and that word become light, and then he said another, which became a spirit then He created me and created Ali, Fatima, Alhassan, and ALhussien. Then from my light He created His throne (universe), and I am holier than the throne, and He created the skies from Ali’s light and for that Ali is holier than the skies and created the moon from the light of Alhassan and for that Alhassan is holier than the moon, and He created the sun from the light of AlHussain and for that AlHussain holier than the sun. Besides He almighty, had plagued the earth with darkness but the angels could not bear that so they complained about that to Almighty Allah (sw), so He spoke to Gabriel (AS) saying: “take some of light of Fatima and put it in a lamp and hang it above the throne”. Gabriel (AS) did so and the seven skies and seven earths flourished and the angels of the skies prayed and prostrated. Allah (sw) then said “I swear by my might, pride, honour, glory, and elevated position, I will maintain the blessings of your glorification and reverence of Fatima, her husband, and her children and those whom love her until the Day of Judgment, and for that she was called “Alzahraa’”.

Oh the flower of heavens … a lyrical tribute to Fatima Zahra (S)
By: Zartash Askari
Oh Fatima (SA)
The lady of light
Daughter of our Prophet (SAW)
The soul that is whiter than white
On the highest of the heavens
You are praised by all the lands
Mother of Hassan and Hussain (AS)
Beauty of Islam
Zahra (SA) your light is shining
Brighter than the sun
Oh the flower of heavens
You are the only one
The apple of Muhammad’s (SAW) eyes
The wife of Ali (AS)
The role model for all women.
