About this book

This book is about the life and virtues of the eminent lady Sayyidatunā Fāṭima al-Zahra . Through her, with Sayyidunā ‘Alī , 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 . Fāṭima was brave, strong, forbearing, dutiful, gracious, and protective. She was a loving mother and an inspiring example to her sons, Imams Ḥasan and Ḥusayn.



Fāṭima al-Zahrā tells the life story of its subject in a vivid, straightforward manner, linking it to the history of Islam from the early times of tribulation to the establishment of the Dīn and the Community based in al-Madīna. Its style and approach are very suitable for children, as well as for older readers. The author, Dr Muhammad Abduh Yamani (d.1431/2010), who served for several years as Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Information, was a distinguished educationalist, author and businessman, notable also for his piety and philanthropy.


“ As an ardent book lover, I can’t help but feel that the quality, binding, finishings, printing... is as superior as what is contained within. This book is not just meant to be read and loved, but to be gifted, shared and passed on to the next generation.”
