Jakarta, Mulla-Shadra.com – On the 16th of February, 2020, the birth anniversary of Sayyidah Fathimah Az-Zahra as has been held in the foundation which was joined royally by the activists and was increasingly happily by the coloring contest of the Ahlul KIsa’s sketch by children.
Fathimah Az-Zahra as was born in Makkah al-Mukarramah on the 20th of Jumadil Akhir, in the 5th year of Bi’tah or 614 AH. In the early years of the prophetic Prophet Muhammad SAAW who was very bitter, Az-Zahra as had grown up as a noble daughter and always supported the Islamic da’wah of his father.
She is a holy woman who was given the title of Umm Abiha, Mother of his father. She was the only woman present with Prophet Muhammad SAAW, Imam Ali, Al-Hasan as, and Husein as at the time of Mubahalah event to the Christians of Najran’ progeny.
The historic event of mubahalah was reported by Allah Ta’ala in the Holy Qur’an, surah Ali Imran, verse 61:
فَمَنْ حَاجَّكَ فِيهِ مِن بَعْدِ مَا جَاءَكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ فَقُلْ تَعَالَوْا نَدْعُ أَبْنَاءَنَا وَأَبْنَاءَكُمْ وَنِسَاءَنَا وَنِسَاءَكُمْ وَأَنفُسَنَا وَأَنفُسَكُمْ ثُمَّ نَبْتَهِلْ فَنَجْعَل لَّعْنَتَ اللَّـهِ عَلَى الْكَاذِبِينَ
“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].”
Although in the beginning, the mubahalah was only between Rasulullah SAAW and the male Christians, but in the end, they brought their children and wives in the mubahalah to be more convincing to those who preached on the truth of his da’wah.
Therefore they brought the best people from among them, who are beloved by the community, and in order to maintain the safety of the best people, they are willing to sacrifice themselves and put themselves in dangerous situations.
In addition, Allamah Tabataba’i (ra), noted that another reason for the inclusion of their families in the place of mubahalah was that perhaps by doing this, he wanted to say that one group condemned the other group, and the two groups laid down the curse of Allah Ta’ala to those who lied until His curse and punishment also surround his children, wives and themselves and in this way, hostility is uprooted to its roots.
From the said explanation, it is clear that it is not necessary for children, wives or self to be more than two so that the plural form of the verses can apply because according to the above explanation, the purpose of the plural is one of two joint debates the people, big or small, male or female, can all be destroyed.
Likewise, in this incident, the commentators, narrators, and historical evidence state that the Messenger of Allah PBUH did not bring anyone other than Ali, Fathimah, Hasan, and Hussein as.
And in this way, the selves are two people, the children are two people and only the wives are one person. And by doing that, the command of Allah remains carried out. In the Qur’an, it can also be witnessed by another thing that the verse in terms of causes of the descent of one person but the word form uses the plural; for example, the Zihar verse in QS. Al-Mujadalah.
Zamaksyari tells the story of Sayyidah Fatima’s participation in the Mubahalah event
Zamakhsyari in Tafsir al-Kasysyaf quoted the mubahalah verse from Ayesha that the Messenger of Allah (saaw) came out on the mubahalah and put on a robe to cover his black hair when Imam Hasan came, he put it in the robe, then Imam Husayn came and included it, and then Fatimah then Imam Ali, at that time he said:
إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّـهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنكُمُ الرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيرً
“Verily, Allah intends only to remove from you the impurity (of sin), O Ahlulbayt (of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH), and to purify you with (extensive) purification.”
The Ahlu Sunnah ulama continued his explanation and said, “Bringing the children and wives at the time of mubahalah, shows more authority and trust than if they only mubahalah by themselves.
Because by including those who are loved, part of their souls, and who are deeply loved by society into curse and destruction and not only suffices itself, it shows courage.
Therefore, this shows that the Holy Prophet PBUH fully believed that his enemy was in a lie, which if there was a desire for a loved one and his baby would be broken to the base of the root.
The specialty of children and their wives is because they are the most beloved family who occupies a position in their hearts more than anyone even though humans are ready to put themselves in destruction just because they are not hurt at all and therefore in war, they bring his wife and children with him doesn’t separate.
Therefore, Allah Almighty put them first (wife and children) over himself (anfus) in this Mubahalah verse to show that their wife and children take precedence over themselves. ”
Based on this Zamakhsyari said: “This is the argument about the virtues of Ahlukisa’, where there is no proposition that is stronger than the proposition itself.”
Ustadz Ismail Daeng Naba (live from Qom al-Muqaddasah) was the lecture in the event of the birth anniversary of Sayyidah Fathimah Az-Zahra as.
In his speech, Ustadz Ismail Daeng Naba emphasized the audience to always imitate the attitude and character of Az-Zahra as. Praised, trustworthy, and upholding the values of Islamic law are traces of Az-Zahra as we must always apply in various activities of our daily lives.
