Fatemeh is Fatemeh (Persian: فاطمه، فاطمه است‎‎) is a book written by Ali Shariati. In the book, Fatima Zahra the daughter of the Islamic prophet Muhammad (pbuh&hp) is described as a role model for Muslims women around the world.


It was written in the pre-revolutionary era of Iran’s history where there were no specific sources by which one might interpret who she was, and he assures the readers that he is giving them more than an analytical description of her personality and that it needs the criticism of the enlightened thinker.


By writing this book he was to complete the work of French scholar Professor Louis Massignon.


He describes Fatima as a manifestation and a symbol of the way and an essential direction of ‘Islamic thought’. He states that even in the ever changing world in which people’s views towards life constantly change, as a role model Fatima can still be looked up to by women around the world.

Part 1


To begin with, I had wanted to comment upon the research of Professor Louis Massignon about the personality and complicated life of Fatima (s.a). I had wished to refer to the deep and revolutionary influence her memory evokes in Moslem societies, and the role she has played in the breadth of Islamic transformations. I agreed to answer the pertinent question of womanhood which is extremely important today for our society.


Women who have remained in the traditional mould do not face the problem of identity and women who have accepted the new imported mould have solved the problem for themselves.


But in the midst of these two types of molded women, there are those who can neither accept their hereditary, traditional form nor surrender to this imposed new form. What should they do?


They want to decide for themselves.They want to develop themselves. They need a model, an ideal example. For them, the problem of Who am I? How do I become? is urgent.


Fatima, through her own being, answers their questions.

Part 2


?Our people continue to speak about Fatima. Every year, hundreds of thousands of Moslems cry for her.There are hundreds of thousands of gatherings, prayer meetings, festivals and mourning ceremonies in her memory. They hold rituals of lamentation where they recreate her sorrows. In spite of all of this, her real personality is not known.


The only things, unfortunately, that our people know of this great, sacred person are these few items as follows:


‘Fatima was the beloved daughter of the Prophet. After the death of the Prophet, her grazing land in Fadak was taken… They attacked her home with a group of his men and struck her in her side and she, six months pregnant, aborted her son, Mohsin. From then on her days passed with the taking of her children’s hands and walking outside of the city to a place called ‘House of Sorrows’. There she would sit and cry. She would speak ill of the usurpers of Ali’s rights. She would cry and lament for hours. She spent her short life crying until she died. She requested in her will that she be buried at night so that those who thought ill of her would not follow her funeral and they would not know where she was buried.’


This is the extent of the information about this great person that exists in the memories of our people.


✅Yet, in spite of the little they know about her, the people accept her majesty and power with their whole hearts. They offer her their hearts with all the spiritual strength, faith and will that a people could have or a human community could build.
