بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم ۔ کیا آپ نے اس شخص کو دیکھا جو سزا و جزا کو جھوٹلاتا  ہے ؟ یہ وہی ہے جو یتیم کو دھکے دیتا ہے- اور مسکین کو کھانا کھلانے کی ترغیب نہیں دیتا- پس ایسے نمازیوں کے لئے ہلاکت ہے- جو اپنی نماز سے غافل رہتے ہیں- جو ریاکاری کرتے ہیں- اور< ضرورتمندوں کو> معموملی چیزیں دینے سے بھی گریزکرتے ہیں۔ {سورہ ماعون} بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم ۔ کیا آپ نے اس شخص کو دیکھا جو سزا و جزا کو جھوٹلاتا  ہے ؟ یہ وہی ہے جو یتیم کو دھکے دیتا ہے- اور مسکین کو کھانا کھلانے کی ترغیب نہیں دیتا- پس ایسے نمازیوں کے لئے ہلاکت ہے- جو اپنی نماز سے غافل رہتے ہیں- جو ریاکاری کرتے ہیں- اور< ضرورتمندوں کو> معموملی چیزیں دینے سے بھی گریزکرتے ہیں۔ {سورہ ماعون}

Anniversary of Hazrat Bibi Fizza Salamullaah Alaiha

-


She was the daughter of a king of Ethiopia. She left her father and went to work as a maid of Janabe Fatema Zehra A.S. She was only 11 years of age when she came to serve Bibi Fatema A.S. It is believed that she knew how to make gold and she also knew the Holy Quran by heart. Once she invited the Ahlul Bayt for dinner and with her dua, the food was sent to her from Heaven by the order of Allah (SWT). After the death of Bibi Fatema A.S. she continued to stay with the Ahlul Bayt, even though she had sons who were very rich. Imam Hussein A.S. even took her to Kerbala. On every occasion in Kerbala, she was with Bibi Zainab A.S. Imam Hussein A.S. respected her very much. She died in Shaam and is buried there.

It is said that when Yazid was misbehaving in the Darbar of Shaam against the Ahlul Bayt A.S. Bibi Fizza A.S. stood in front of Bibi Zainab A.S. Yazid gave orders that Bibi Fizza should be whipped. Bibi Fizza came forward and gave a daring speech addressing the African slaves who were the bodyguards. She told them it was a shame on them that in their presence Yazid was ordering her to be whipped. The slaves were very much affected by her speech and they immediately turned towards Yazid and told him that if Bibi Fizza were whipped they would attack with their swords already drawn. Yazid ordered the slaves to stop.

Abdullah Mubarak has related a very interesting dialogue between himself and Bibi Fizza.

He states, "I saw a woman passing through the desert who had fallen behind the caravan and asked her, "Who are you and where are you from?"

She replied:
And say, "Salaam" for they shall soon know! (az-Zukhruf, 43:89)

I learned that she expected me to greet her and say "Assalamu Alaykum" first, before any question. I did as she reminded, and then enquired why she was in the desert. She answered:

And whomsoever Allah guides, there is none to lead him astray! (az-Zumar, 39:37)

On hearing her reply, I asked her, Are you from mankind or from the jinn?" She replied:

O Children of Adam! be adorned at every time of prostration. (al-Araf,7: 31)

I asked her, "Where are you coming from?" She replied:

They are (like those) who are called to from a place far off. (Ha Mim 41:44)

I asked her, "Where are you intending to go?" She said:

And (purely) for Allah is incumbent upon mankind, the Pilgrimage of the House. (Ali Imran, 3:97)

I asked her how many days she had been travelling. She told me:

And indeed We (Allah) created the heavens and the earth and what is between them two, in six days. (Qaf, 50:38)

I asked her, "Do you feel hungry?" She replied:

We (Allah) did not make them such bodies that ate no food. (Al-Anbiya, 21:8)

I gave her food and asked her to hurry up to catch the caravan but she replied:

Allah does not task any soul beyond its ability. (al-Baqaráh, 2:286)

I suggested that she sit on the camel behind me, but she said:

Had there been gods therein besides Allah, there would have been disorder in both (the heavens and the earth). (al-Anbiya, 21:22)

On hearing this I realised that, because we were not husband and wife, it was unlawful for both of us to ride the camel.
So I got off and mounted her on it. When she sat on the camel, she said:

Glory to Him Who subjected this to us. (az-Zukhruf 43:13)

When we reached the caravan, I asked her, "Do you know anyone among them?" She called out in reply:

O Dawud, Verily, We have appointed you a Khalifa in the earth. (Sad, 38:26)

And Muhammad is not but a Messenger. (Ali Imran, 3:144)

O Yahya! Hold the book with firmness! (Maryam, 19:12)

O Musa! Verily I am Allah, the All-Mighty. (an-Naml, 27:9)

I began to call out these four names at which four youths came out of the caravan and ran towards Bibi Fizza. I asked her who they were and she replied:

Wealth and children are the adornment of the world. (al-Kahf, 18:46)

I realised that they were her sons. The woman turned to the youth and said:

O my Father, employ him, verily the best of those who you can employ is the strong man and the trusted one. (al-Qasas, 28:26)

She thus made them understand that I had helped her. Then she told them:

And verily Alláh increases manifold to whosoever He wills. (al-Baqaráh, 2: 261)

The sons understood their mothers hint and paid me well.

I enquired from the them as to who this noble lady was, and they replied, "She is our mother, Fizza, the maid-servant of Lady Fatimah (A), daughter of the Holy Prophet (S). She has conversed in nothing but the Holy Quran for the last 20 years."
