The life and virtues of Fatimah al-Zahrah and her beloved family has been a source of inspiration, guidance and succour for countless Muslims throughout the history of Islam. Therefore, with the intention of pleasing Allah, this book hopes to delve into the marriage and personal life of Sayyidinah Fatimah and her beloved husband Sayyidina Ali ibn Abi Talib, in order that we too may benefit from their radiant examples.
The examples set by them and the lessons gained from their lives are meant not only to be read, but also to be implemented within our lives.
By studying their marriage we hope for an improvement in our moral character, our knowledge and wisdom and we hope that this will allow us to also live amongst our family with respect and honour.
The noblest among the family are the women, for Allah created them to be merciful and women are connected to the Divine Names al-Rahman and al-Rahim.
The Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, commands us to be kind to our wives and women in general, for they are our mothers, our wives, our daughters and our sisters, and must be honored.
So in deference to that love and the command of the Prophet, we board the ship of the Ahl al-Bayt to learn about the blessed lives of Fatimah and Ali.
