أبى رحمه الله قال: حدثنا علي بن ابراهيم، عن محمد بن عيسى قال: حدثنا محمد بن زياد مولى بني هاشم قال: حدثنا شيخ لنا ثقة يقال له نجية بن اسحاق الفزاري قال: حدثنا عبد الله بن الحسن بن الحسن قال: قال لى أبو الحسن لم سميت فاطمة فاطمة، قلت: فرقا بينه وبين الاسماء قال ان ذلك لمن الاسماء ولكن الاسم الذي سميت به ان الله تبارك وتعالى علم ماكان قبل كونه فعلم ان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله يتزوج في الاحياء وانهم يطمعون في وراثة هذا الامر فيهم من قبله فلما ولدت فاطمة سماها الله تبارك وتعالى فاطمة لما اخرج منها وجعل في ولدها فقطعهم عما طمعوا، فبهذا سميت فاطمة، لانها فطمت طمعهم. ومعنى فطمت: قطعت.


1. My father said, ‘Ali Bin Ibrahim narrated to us, from Muhamamd Bin Isa, from Muhammad Bin Ziyad, a slave of the Clan of Hashim (as), from a reliable elder of ours called Najeet Bin Is’haq Al Fazary, from Abdullah Bin Al Hassan Bin Al Hassan who said, ‘Abu Al-Hassan (a.s.) said to me: ‘Why was Fatima (a.s.) named as ‘Fatima’?’ I said, ‘Is there a difference between it and the (other) names?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘That is a name from the names, but the name which she (a.s.) was named with, that Allah (azwj) Blessed and High Knew what was to be before it transpires, so He (azwj) knew that Rasool-Allah (saww) would be getting married during the lifetime, and that they (people) would be coveting with regards to his (saww) inheritance of this command from beforehand. So when Fatima (sws) was Gifted (to Rasool Allah (saww)), Allah (azwj) Blessed and High Named her as ‘Fatima’ (Enforced discontinuance), due to what (Inheritance) was to come out from her (a.s.) and Made it to be in her (a.s.) sons (a.s.), thus cutting off their coveting from them. So, it is due to this, she (a.s.) was named as ‘Fatima’, because she (a.s.) cut-off (discontinued) their greed. And the meaning of ‘Fatima’ – ‘Cutting-off’’.




حدثنا محمد بن موسى بن المتوكل رحمه الله قال: حدثنا علي بن الحسين السعد آبادى عن احمد بن أبى عبد الله البرقي، عن عبد العظيم بن عبد الله الحسني قال: حدثني الحسن بن عبد الله بن يونس بن ظبيان قال: قال أبو عبد الله " ع " لفاطمة عليها السلام تسعة اسماء عند الله عزوجل فاطمة والصديقة والمباركة والطاهرة والزكية والراضية والمرضية والمحدثة والزهراء، ثم قال: أتدري أي شئ تفسير فاطمة عليها السلام؟ قلت إخبرنى يا سيدي قال: فطمت من الشر قال: ثم قال، لو لا ان أمير المؤمنين " ع " تزوجها ماكان لها كفوا إلى يوم القيامة على وجه الارض، آدم فمن دونه.


2. Muhammad Bin Musa Bin Al Mutawakkal narrated to us, from Ali Bin Al Husayn Al Sa’ad Abady, from Ahmad Bin Abu Abdullah Al Barqy, from Abdul Azeem Bin Abdullah Al has any, from Al Hassan Bin Abdullah Bin Yunus Bin Zibyan who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘For Fatima (a.s.) there are nine names in the Presence of Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic – Fatima, and Al-Siddiqua, and Al-Mubaraka, and Al-Tahira, and Al-Zakiyya, and Al-Raziyya, and Al-Marziyya, and Al-Muhaddisa, and Al-Zahra’. Then he (a.s.) said: ‘Do you know which thing is the interpretation of (name of) Fatima (a.s.)?’ I said, ‘Inform me, O my Master?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘She (a.s.) is cut-off from the evil’. He (the narrator) said, ‘Then he (a.s.) said: ‘Had she (Fatima (a.s.)) been not married to Amir Al-Momineen (a.s.), there would not have been a match for her (a.s.) up to the Day of Judgement upon the face of the earth, (including) Adam (as) and the ones besides him (as)’.




حدثنا محمد بن الحسن رحمه الله قال: حدثنا احمد بن علوية الاصبهاني عن ابراهيم بن محمد الثقفي، عن جندل بن والق قال: حدثنا محمد بن عمر البصري عن جعفر بن محمد بن علي، عن أبيه عليهما السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله يا فاطمة أتدرين لم سميت فاطمة؟ فقال علي " ع " يا رسول الله لم سميت؟ قال: لانها فطمت هي وشيعتها من النار.


3. Muhammad Bin Al Hassan narrated to us, from Ahmad Bin Alawiya Al Asbahany, from Ibrahim Bin Muhammad Al Saqafy, from Jandal Bin Walaq, from Muhammad Bin Umar Al Basry, (It has been narrated) from Ja’far (a.s.) Bin Muhammad (a.s.) Bin Ali (a.s.), from his (a.s.) father (a.s.) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘O Fatima (a.s.)! Do you (a.s.) know why you (a.s.) have been named as ‘Fatima’?’ So Ali (a.s.) said: ‘O Rasool-Allah (saww), why was she (a.s.) named as such?’ He (saww) said: ‘Because she (a.s.) and her (a.s.) Shiah are cut-off from the Fire’.




حدثنا محمد بن موسى بن المتوكل رحمه الله قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله عن احمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن محمد بن سنان، عن عبد الله بن مسكان عن محمد بن مسلم الثقفي قال: سمعت أبا جعفر " ع " يقول لفاطمة عليها السلام، وقفة على باب جهنم، فإذا كان يوم القيامة كتب بين عيني كرجل مؤمن أو كافر فيؤمر بمحب قد كثرت ذنوبه إلى النار فتقرأ فاطمة بين عينيه محبا فيقول: إلهى وسيدي سميتني فاطمة وفطمت بى من تولاني وتولى ذريتي من النار ووعدك الحق وأنت لا تخلف الميعاد، فيقول الله عزوجل، صدقت يا فاطمة إنى سميتك فاطمة وفطمت بك من أحبك وتولاك وأحب ذريتك وتولاهم من النار ووعدي الحق وأنا لا اخلف الميعاد، وإنما أمرت بعبدي هذا إلى النار لتشفعي فيه فاشفعك وليتبين لملائكتي وانبيائي ورسلي وأهل الموقف موقفك مني ومكانتك عندي فمن قرأت بين عينيه مؤمنا فخذي بيده وادخليه الجنة.


4. Muhammad Bin Musa Bin Al Mutawakkal narrated to us, from Sa’ad Bin Abdullah, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Muhammad Bin Sinan, from Abdullah Bin Muskan, from Muhammad Bin Muslim Al Saqafy who said, ‘I heard Abu Ja’far (a.s.) saying for Fatima (a.s.) that she would be pausing at the Gateway of Hell. So when it will be the Day of Judgement, there would be written in between the two eyes whether the man is a Believer or an Infidel. So they would pass with a loving one to the Fire due to the abundance of his sins. So Fatima (a.s.) would read ‘Loving one’, in between his eyes, so she (a.s.) would be saying: ‘My (a.s.) God (azwj), and my (a.s.) Master! You (azwj) Named me (a.s.) as ‘Fatima’, and would be Cutting off by me (a.s.), the one who would be with my (a.s.) Wilayah and the Wilayah of my (a.s.) children, (Cutting-off) from the Fire, and Your (azwj) Promise is the Truth, and You (azwj) do not Default on Your (azwj) Promise’. So Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic would be Saying: “You (a.s.) have spoken the Truth, O Fatima (a.s.)! I (azwj) Named you (a.s.) as ‘Fatima’, and I (azwj) will Cut-off from the Fire, by you (a.s.), the one who loves you (a.s.) and be with your (a.s.) Wilayah, and loves your (a.s.) offspring and is with their (a.s.) Wilayah, and My (azwj) Promise is the Truth, and I (azwj) do not Default from My (azwj) Promise. But rather, I (azwj) Commanded for this servant of Mine to the Fire so that you (a.s.) would intercede to Me (azwj) with regards to him and I (azwj) will Intercede for your (a.s.) sake, so that it would be manifested to My (azwj) Angels, and My (azwj) Prophets (as), and My (azwj) Rasools (as), and the people of the status, of your (a.s.) status from Me (azwj), and your (a.s.) position in My (azwj) Presence”. Thus, for the one whom she (a.s.) reads in between his eyes ‘Believer’, so he would be taken by the hand and made to enter into the Paradise’.
