Fatima the daughter of Sayyiduna Husain (ra)


Her mother was Umm Ishaq the daughter of Sayyiduna Talha b. Ubaidullah.

She first married to Hasan b. Hasan b. ‘Ali (ra). She had three sons from him namely Abdullah, Ibrahim and Hasan, and one daughter named Zainab.

After the death of Hasan b. Hasan she married to Abdullah b. ‘Amr b. ‘Uthman (grandson of sayyiduna ‘Uthman b. ‘Affan). She had two sons (Muhammad and Qasim) and a daughter (Ruqayya) from him. Her son Muhammad b. Abdullah was titled al-Deebaj because of his beauty and look. Taken from Tabaqat Ibn Sa’d.

This marriage also contradicts the claim from handful of later scholars and many of propagandist sufis who claim that a woman from the lineage of Sayyida Fatima cannot marry a person other lineage.

After the death of ‘Abdullah b. ‘Amr b. ‘Uthman she did not marry. In the year 104 AH the then Ameer of Haramain Abdur Rahman b. Dhahhak b. Qais al-Fihri proposed her for marriage to which she denied. He tried to force her and threatened to beat her eldest son Abdullah b. Hasan. To this she complained to the then caliph Yazid b. Abdul Malik about him. Yazeed got angry and told the chief of Taa’if Abdul Wahid al-Nasri to take over the responsibility of Haramain from Ibn dhahhak and punish him so much that I hear his voice in Dimashq (sic). Abdur-Rahman b. Dhahhak was beaten and forty thousand Dinars were taken from his property and he was left to wander in on woolen cloth. This is mentioned in al-bidayah of Ibn Katheer under the incidents of year 104 Ah among other books.
