حدثنا احمد بن الحسن القطان قال: حدثنا الحسن بن علي السكرى، عن محمد بن زكريا الجوهري قال: حدثنا شعيب بن واقد قال: حدثني اسحاق بن جعفر بن محمد بن عيسى بن زيد بن علي قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله " ع " يقول إنما سميت فاطمة عليها السلام محدثه لان الملائكة كانت تهبط من السماء فتناديها كما تنادي مريم بنت عمران فتقول: يا فاطمة الله اصطفاك وطهرك واصطفاك على نساء العالمين يا فاطمة إقنتي لربك واسجدي واركعي مع الراكعين، فتحدثهم ويحدثونها فقالت لهم ذات ليلة: أليست المفضلة على نساء العالمين مريم بنت عمران؟ فقالوا: ان مريم كانت سيدة نساء عالمها، وان الله عز وجل جعلك سيدة نساء عالمك وعالمها وسيدة نساء الاولين والآخرين.

1. Ahmad Bin Al Hassan Al Qatan narrated to us, from Al Hassan Bin Ali Al Sakry, from Muhammad Bin Zakariyya Al Jowhary, from Shuayb Bin Waqad, from Is’haq Bin Ja’far Bin Muhammad Bin Isa Bin Zayd son of Ali (asws) who said, ‘I heard Abu Abdullah (asws) saying: ‘But rather, Syeda Fatima (asws) was named as Muhaddisa because the Angels used to descend from the sky, so they would call out to her (asws) just as they used to call out to Maryam (as) daughter of Imran (as), so they were saying: ‘O Fatima (asws)! [3:42] Allah has Chosen you and Purified you and Chosen you above the women of the worlds. O Fatima (asws)! [3:43] Be obedient to your Lord and humble yourself, and bow down with those who bow. So she (asws) would discuss with them, and they would discuss with her (asws). One night, she (asws) said to them: ‘Am I (asws) not more meritorious over the (Chieftess) of the women of the worlds, Maryam (as) daughter of Imran (as)?’ So they said: ‘Maryam (as) was Chieftess of the women of her (asws) world (era), and Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic has Made you (asws) the Chieftess of the women of her (as) era, and Chieftess of the women of the former ones and the later ones’.
