The Father-Daughter Relation


The love between the father and daughter was not a one-way process; instead, Fatima (S.A) too immensely loved her father (Prophet) like he loved her. When Hazrat Khadija (S.A) died, she was not more than six years of age. After the death of her mother, she always looked after the comfort of her father at home. Fatima (S.A) was such a daughter who constantly and stably followed the footsteps of her father. The streets and Masjid-e-Haram of Mecca were full of those who teased, insulted and tortured the Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P). Whenever her respect worthy father returned home in the injured condition, she would wash the blood off his sacred face and dress his wounds and encouraged him with her sweet conversation.

At such times, when her father was a stranger in his own land and among his own people and he was all alone with all the relatives present, and secluded and lonely among all those who spoke the same language he spoke. Moreover, he was all-alone during his struggle and combat against ignorance, idol worshipping and he was carrying the heavy responsibility of preaching on his own.

Then it was only and only Fatima (S.A) who pleased and consoled the heart of her father with her sincere love and affection. She by accepting the Prophecy of her father strengthened his hopes. That is the reason why the Prophet used to say, "May your father sacrifice his life upon you" or that he would call her the "mother of her father". Because, she was like a mother for her father.

Like her Holy Infallible Father (P.B.U.H&H.P), she possessed all the intellectual abilities and achievements. Many verses of The Holy Quran were revealed in her praise and about her spiritual credits. The Holy Prophet of Islam (P.B.U.H&H.P) had given her several honorable titles among which one is: The Holy Prophet her Father (P.B.U.H&H.P) loved her very much whenever she would go to the house of her father The Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P) would stand up out of respect to her. Whenever he greeted her, and he would honor her by giving her a special place to seat herself in his house. Very often Her Father (P.B.U.H&H.P) would softly kiss her hands and say: "Allah, The Most High; is pleased when Fatimah (S.A) is pleased. He is angered; whenever Fatimah is angered!"
