Bani Adam has been made superior, therefore, Allah Says:

(Definitely, We have given honour to the offspring of Adam and took them in dry and watery (through animals and boats) channels and gave them good things to eat and gave them reasonable supremacy over other creatures) – Surah Bani Israel Ayah 70. Rasool-e-Akram (SAAW) and his Ahle Bait Athaar (A.S.) have been declared the most renowned amongst all Bani Adam and on the basis of its devotion with Khanwada-e-Ahle Bait (A.S.) has been declared Ajr-e-Risalt.  (I do not ask any compensation (work of Risalat) except devotion with my Ahle Bait). The Rasool (SAAW) gave the highest regard to Hazrat Fatima Zehra (S.A.). Many Kamil Al-Iman are found amongst men but there are only four from womenfolk who enjoy this honour i.e. Hazrat Aasia Binte Mazahim, Hazrat Maryam Madar-e-Eisa, Hazrat Khadija Binte Khwailad, and Hazrat Fatima Binte Muhammad SAAW (reference: Tafseer-e-Kashaaf/Tafseer-e-Baizavi. About Hazrat Maryam, Allah Says: . . . and (second example) Imran’s daughter Maryam who kept her chastity intact, so we put Our soul in her and she upheld the Sayings of Allah and His Books and she was amongst the sincere persons (Surah Tehreem, Ayah 12).

            Before the beginning of Ba’asat-e-Nabawi, in the days of ignorance woman was considered the symbol of shame and the cause of humiliation and defame and she was even considered a shame and this shame should be buried in earth. In those days, one camel cost was greater than many girls. In that dark era, Rasool-e-Akram (SAAW) was sent to honour human beings, give respect and dignity to woman in the shape of Islam that is a complete code of life and dominates every department of life, preaches peace and tranquillity, supports the oppressed and the poor, is against oppression and brutality and condemns all types of biases. It has declared Zuhd-o-Taqwah as the standard of human supremacy and has settled new Asaas for the survival and eternity of mankind that took the woman to the new heights with the blessings of Fatima’s (S.A.) presence. Today, the personality of woman, courtesy Hazrat Fatima Zehra (S.A.) is touching the mirage of its heights. Quran and Ahadees carried the supremacy Fazeelat (good qualities) of woman. Kuffar-e-Quresh and Arab tribes that were averse of Hazoor-e-Akram (SAAW) were happy that Hazoor-e-Akram (SAAW) has no son. Allah dismantled their happiness for ever by honouring the Rasool-e-Akram (SAAW) with a daughter like Fatima (S.A.). The enemies of Allah when heard that the newborn is a daughter expressed their happiness but Allah told Muhammad (SAAW) that:  Oh, Muhammad! No doubt, We have blessed you with Kausar (mass offspring), so offer prayers of your Allah and give sacrifice. No doubt, your enemy is worst. Today, no part of the world is without the presence of offspring of Ali (A.S.) and Fatima (S.A.). As a poet says:

            

            There is a saying of the Khatmi Martabat (SAAW) that goes: Allah declared every Nabi’s Zuriyyat from his Sulb while my Zuriyyat has been declared in the Sulb of Ali (A.S.) and Fatima (S.A.). Hazrat Fatima Zehra (S.A.) was brought up in the lap of Paighambar-e-Islam and Hazrat Khadijatul Kubra (S.A.), and achieved knowledge from this spiritual Maktab. She was declared a complete example for the world of womenfolk. The Khatmi Martabat (SAAW) gave the title of Umme Abiha (mother of her Baba). Her home is the Danishgah of honour and dignity in which personalities like Hassan (A.S.), Hussain (A.S.), Zainab (S.A.) and Kulsoom (S.A.) were brought up and their deeds are the beacons of light for the world of humanity in every era. Hazrat Zehra (S.A.) used to help the injured in the battlefield, used to do her house chores herself when at home, used to grind wheat. In other words, she used to do all her work herself besides taking care of orphans, the poor and the prisoners. (Surah Dahr). Owing to house chores and grinding the wheat, her scalps became rough on which the Rasool-e-Khuda (SAAW) gave Tasbih to his beloved daughter which is called Tasbih-e-Fatima even today and is the solution of all problems.

              

Hazrat Fatima (S.A.) is the biggest worshipper in the world of worshippers, biggest follower of Shariat in the world of Shariat and the world is unable to present such a personality.

             

            Her greatness could be gauged from the fact that her Baba Muhammad (SAAW) is the Sardar of Anbia, mother Khadija (S.A.) is the Malkia of both the worlds, husband Ali (A.S.) is Sher-e-Khuda about whom Hazrat Umar had said I would have been killed if Ali (A.S.) would have not been there, sons are Hassan (A.S.) and Hussain (A.S.), daughters are Zainab (S.A.) and Kulsoom (S.A.) who shattered the Yazidi courts with their heart-rending khutbaat. Aulad-e-Nabi (SAAW), Ali (A.S.) and Zehra (S.A.) are the beacon of light for all movements of independence throughout the world including Kashmir, Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan and elsewhere for the last 1400 years. Looking at the holy life of Hazrat Fatima Zehra (S.A.) would reveal that she shared the woes of Holy Prophet (SAAW) equally in Shoeb-e-Abi Talib for three years, bore the grief of Wafaat of Hazrat Abu Talib (A.S.) and Hazrat Khadijatul Kubra (S.A.) along with her Baba (SAAW), remained with her to bear the brunt of Hijrat, was along with the Holy Prophet (SAAW) in his journeys and wars to encourage him. The Holy Prophet (SAAW) said about her:  (If Ali A.S. would not had been there, then there was no parallel to Fatima A.S.). She accepted the match of Hazrat Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) for herself. Then she supported him in every moment of relief and grief.

             

She equally participated in the grief of Amm-e-Rasool Hazrat Hamza’s Shahadat. She accompanied her Baba (SAAW), her husband (A.S.) and sons (A.S.) in Mobahila with Nasara-e-Najran. On the Wafaat of Rasool-e-Akram (SAAW) she said: (Oh, Baba! The woes me Fatima had to suffer, had these inflicted on days they would have been turned into black nights). She participated in every work till she lived in Khana-e-Ali. She passed away after 95 days of Wisal-e-Paighambar. The lesson of sacrifice taught by Hazat Fatima Zehra (S.A.) of her offspring could be gauged from an incidence narrated by Hazrat Imam Hassan (A.S.) that: Madar-e-Garami (S.A.) when stood up at the place of worship and remained busy in worship till morning. She was praying to Allah for Mominaat and Momineen but did not seek anything for herself. When she finished, I asked, Madar-e-Garami you pray for other people and did not seek anything for your self. She replied, Oh, my son! Dua is for neighbourers first. This lesson of sacrifice given by Hazrat Zehra (S.A.) to her son is the beacon of light for mothers and sons the world over, even today. As the Poet of the East says:

          

            The golden sayings of Khatoon-e-Jannat Hazrat Fatima Zehra (S.A.) are the invaluable beads of wisdom and intelligence. There is a saying of her (S.A.) that goes: I like three things in your world i.e. recitation from Holy Quran, Ziarat of Rasool’s (SAAW) face, and spending in way of Allah (reference: Nehjul Hayat). There is another saying of her (S.A.) that goes: The best woman is the one who do not see the Na-Mehram and Na-Mehram could not see her. When the world of Shariat was grieved on the Wisaal of Paighambar-e-Islam (SAAW), wailing and grieved was being expressed all around, the grief of Hazrat Zehra (S.A.) in this situation was totally different. She used to shed tears throughout the night and from morning to evening, the separation from Baba (SAAW) was a great shock and a heavy test of her forbearance. The result of this fatal shock culminated in her death after a few months. The daughter of Muhammad (SAAW) left this world forever.

            The live nations keep the signs of their Mashaheer intact rather they leave no stone unturned in the respect but alas! The will of the Rasool (SAAW) was: Hold the daman of Quran and Ahle Bait (A.S.) that provides guarantee that you would not be misled. But Quran has been placed in the rakes and the Roza-e-Qudsia of the first personality of Ahle Bait Fatima Zehra (S.A.) was razed to ground. Jannatul Baqee and Jannatul Moallah are raising the voice of protest but the Muslim Ummah is unmoved. In this situation, how can we demand restoration of Al-Quds Al-Sharif from Zionists and that of Babri Masjid from Hindus? How can we protest against the desecration of Quran, blasphemous activities and humiliation of Ahle Bait Athaar (A.S.) and pious Sahaba Kubaar, publication of blasphemous images, publication of blasphemous pictures and similar films? The Muslims would have to keep their hands and daman clear, first. At present, Muslim Ummah is surrounded by the international colonial powers from all around; Iraq, Afghanistan, Kashmir and Palestine have been given a blood bath; terrorism has become the order of the day in motherland Pakistan; and this all is the result of keeping away from Quran and Ahle Bait (A.S.). The Muslim Ummah would have to reconstruct the holy shrines of Paighambar-e-Islam (SAAW), Ahle Bait Athaar (A.S.), Ummahatul Momineen (R.A.) and pious Sahaba Kubaar (R.A.), particularly that of Bint-e-Rasool Khatoon-e-Jannat Hazrat Fatima Zehra (S.A.) and get their dignity restored if she desired to save herself from destruction. Otherwise, the Muslim Ummah should get ready to face more woes. As a poet says:
