Tags: Demise of Hazrat Fatimah Zahra (s.a.)
Abu Baseer narrates that Imam Jafar Sadiq (a.s.) informed about Hazrat Fatimah Zahra’s (s.a.) demise: ‘…Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) narrates while she was breathing her last – We heard her address someone – Salutations upon you. She said – Surely Jibrail has come to me and says – Salutations upon you, O beloved of Allah’s Beloved and the fruit of his heart. Today you will meet the Most High and will reside in Jannatul Maawaa. Then he left me. Then Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) relates – We heard her address someone once again – Salutations upon you. Then she addressed us – By Allah here is Mikaail. And he has informed me just like his companion (Jibrail). Then Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) relates – We heard her address someone once again – Salutations upon you. And this time we saw her open her eyes alarmingly. And she said – By Allah this is the truth and here is Izraail and he has spread his wings over the east and the west. And surely my father has described him to me and he is true to his attribute. Then Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) relates – We heard her say once again – Salutations upon you O seizer of souls. Hasten to me and do not treat me harshly. Then Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) relates – we heard her say – towards you my Lord and not towards the Fire. Then she closed her eyes, and stretched forth her hands and feet never to stir them again.
