The second half of the lecture will focus on a detailed study of one of the most supreme human beings that walked this planet, our Liege Lady Fatima al-Zahra – the daughter of the best of Creation.

Text books which will be covered in the course

Gifts of the seeker – Imam Abdullah al-Haddad

The work also includes the author’s commentary on a poem on inner wayfaring which speaks of the most exalted stations of the path and goes on to explain a number of paradoxes of the Way, such as the reason as why the saints usually refuse to deploy their miraculous powers, preferring to concentrate on self-scrutiny and the compassionate guidance of others. These points are illustrated with references to the famous mystical poems of Ibn al-Farid and Abu Madyan.

Our Lady – Fatimah Al Zahra – Dr Muhammad ‘Abduh Yamani

This beautiful biography is about the life and virtues of the eminent lady Sayyidatunā Fāṭima al-Zahra (رضي الله عنها). Through her, with Sayyidunā ‘Alī (رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ), the blessed lineage of her father, the Messenger of God ﷺ, was preserved. She resembled him in every way, and of all people she was the dearest to his heart. She stood with him ﷺ and strove always to serve and aid him, taking care of him after the death of her mother, Sayyidatunā Khadīja (رضي الله عنها). Sayyidatunā Fāṭima (رضي الله عنها) was brave, strong, forbearing, dutiful, gracious, and protective. She was a loving mother and an inspiring example to her sons, Imams Ḥasan (رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ) and Ḥusayn (رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ)....Read More
