A QUESTION BY; AMININ
The script of Fatima (peace be upon him) is a book which has been written by dictation of Gabriel and handwritten of the commander of the faithful (peace be upon him) and all of the future events and happenings until the Day of Judgment were mentioned in that and nothing pertaining to the lawful or unlawful things has been mentioned in that book
And numerous narrations have referred to this point but we are going to suffice to two cases here and with meditation to these two narrations we will get the whole responses
عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنِ عَبْدِ الْعَزِيزِ عَنْ حَمَّادِ بْنِ عُثْمَانَ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) يَقُولُ تَظْهَرُ الزَّنَادِقَةُ فِي سَنَةِ ثَمَانٍ وَ عِشْرِينَ وَ مِائَةٍ وَ ذَلِكَ أَنِّي نَظَرْتُ فِي مُصْحَفِ فَاطِمَةَ (عليها السلام) قَالَ قُلْتُ وَ مَا مُصْحَفُ فَاطِمَةَ قَالَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ تَعَالَى لَمَّا قَبَضَ نَبِيَّهُ (صلي الله عليه وآله وسلم ) دَخَلَ عَلَى فَاطِمَةَ (عليها السلام) مِنْ وَفَاتِهِ مِنَ الْحُزْنِ مَا لَا يَعْلَمُهُ إِلَّا اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ فَأَرْسَلَ اللَّهُ إِلَيْهَا مَلَكاً يُسَلِّي غَمَّهَا وَ يُحَدِّثُهَا فَشَكَتْ ذَلِكَ إِلَى أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (عليه السلام) فَقَالَ إِذَا أَحْسَسْتِ بِذَلِكِ وَ سَمِعْتِ الصَّوْتَ قُولِي لِي فَأَعْلَمَتْهُ بِذَلِكَ فَجَعَلَ أَمِيرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (عليه السلام) يَكْتُبُ كُلَّ مَا سَمِعَ حَتَّى أَثْبَتَ مِنْ ذَلِكَ مُصْحَفاً قَالَ ثُمَّ قَالَ أَمَا إِنَّهُ لَيْسَ فِيهِ شَيْءٌ مِنَ الْحَلَالَ وَ الْحَرَامِ وَ لَكِنْ فِيهِ عِلْمُ مَا يَكُون .
Hemad Ibn Othman says that; I heard from Imam Sadeq (peace be upon him) that stated; in the year 128, the opponents of the religion and false claimers will rise and I saw that in the Moshaf Fatima ( the script of Fatima) ( peace be upon her) I asked; what is the script of Fatima (peace be upon her)? His Holiness stated that; after the demise of the holy prophet of GOD (peace and bless of GOD be upon him and his progeny) Fatima’s heart was filled with great sorrow and regret that only GOD knows its degree. For this reason Allah the Almighty sent an angel to Fatima in order to talk to her and to remove her sorrow and regret. Fatima (peace be upon her) said the story to Ali (peace be upon him) and the commander of the faithful (peace be upon him) stated that; whenever you think he is coming and you are hearing his voice then let me know. Then Fatima informed Ali (peace be upon him) and the commander of the faithful (peace be upon him) wrote what he has heard until it became a comprehensive book
Then Imam Sadeq (peace be upon him) stated that; there is nothing pertaining to the divine lawful or unlawful things rather than what is seen in this book is the news of the future events and happenings
-Al-Kafi v 1 p 240
مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنِ ابْنِ رِئَابٍ عَنْ أَبِي عُبَيْدَةَ قَالَ سَأَلَ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع بَعْضُ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنِ الْجَفْرِ ... قَالَ فَمُصْحَفُ فَاطِمَةَ (عليها السلام) قَالَ فَسَكَتَ طَوِيلًا ثُمَّ قَالَ إِنَّكُمْ لَتَبْحَثُونَ عَمَّا تُرِيدُونَ وَ عَمَّا لَا تُرِيدُونَ إِنَّ فَاطِمَةَ مَكَثَتْ بَعْدَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ (صلي الله عليه وآله وسلم) خَمْسَةً وَ سَبْعِينَ يَوْماً وَ كَانَ دَخَلَهَا حُزْنٌ شَدِيدٌ عَلَى أَبِيهَا وَ كَانَ جَبْرَئِيلُ (عليه السلام) يَأْتِيهَا فَيُحْسِنُ عَزَاءَهَا عَلَى أَبِيهَا وَ يُطَيِّبُ نَفْسَهَا وَ يُخْبِرُهَا عَنْ أَبِيهَا وَ مَكَانِهِ وَ يُخْبِرُهَا بِمَا يَكُونُ بَعْدَهَا فِي ذُرِّيَّتِهَا وَ كَانَ عَلِيٌّ (عليه السلام) يَكْتُبُ ذَلِكَ فَهَذَا مُصْحَفُ فَاطِمَةَ عليها السلام .
Abu Obaydah says that; some of the Shiites asked some questions from Imam Sadeq (peace be upon him) such as they asked that; what is the script of Fatima? His Holiness remains silent for a while and then stated that; you are talking about what you want and what you do not want (it means some of the questions are not beneficial to you or your aim is not to understand things) Fatima (peace be upon him) was still alive for 75 days after the demise of the holy prophet of GOD (peace and bless of GOD be upon him and his progeny) and she was so sorrowful due to his father’s demise and Gabriel (peace be upon him) was coming to her presence and he condoled her for the demise of her father and made her happy and lessened her sorrow and regret and informed her of his father’s news and eminent standing as well as retold the story of the future of her children and the commander of the faithful (peace be upon him) was writing these points and all of these texts complied in the script of Fatima (peace be upon her)
-Al-Kafi v 1 p 241
The likelihood of specking of the angels to the others except the apostles of GOD
From long ago the Sunnites have criticized that how is it possible that an angel speak to the other people except the apostles of GOD? Is not this issue in contrast to the principle of the last prophecy of GOD?
In response we say that; Sunnite scholars themselves have answered to this religious doubt. Alusi one of the Sunnite great commentators says after the quotation of this narration that
والأخبار طافحة برؤية الصحابة للملك وسماعهم كلامه ، وكفى دليلا لما نحن فيه قوله سبحانه : * ( إِنَّ الَّذينَ قالُوا رَبُّنَا اللَّهُ ثُمَّ اسْتَقامُوا تَتَنَزَّلُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْمَلائِكَةُ أَلاَّ تَخافُوا وَ لا تَحْزَنُوا وَ أَبْشِرُوا بِالْجَنَّةِ الَّتي كُنْتُمْ تُوعَدُون ) * ( فصلت : 30 ) الآية فإن فيها نزول الملك على غير الأنبياء في الدنيا وتكليمه إياه ولم يقل أحد من الناس : إن ذلك يستدعي النبوة وكون ذلك لأن النزول والتكليم قبيل الموت غير مفيد كما لا يخفى .
Various narrations have been quoted that the companions were able to see the angels or to hear their voices. In order to prove that this reason will be sufficient that Allah the Almighty has stated that; ‘’ ( as for) those who say; our Lord is Allah, then continue in the right way, the angels descend upon them, saying; fear not, nor be grieved and receive good news of the garden which you were promised’’ ( the chapter Ha Mim (Foselat) verse 30And this verse proves that the angels have revealed to the other people except the apostles of GOD and even talked to them and no one has said that this ability requires the prophecy of the apostles and from the other side this talk is just like death and it is not beneficial
-TafsirAlusi; Alusi v 22 p 40
Shaking hands with the angels
There are numerous narrations in the Sunnite sources that imply in this fact that if mankind live in the world according to the divine commands and act based upon the lawful issues and prevent himself from the unlawful acts then he will directly encounter the angels and will be able to talk to them
Moslem Nayshaburi quotes that
قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَالَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ إِنْ لَوْ تَدُومُونَ عَلَى مَا تَكُونُونَ عِنْدِي وَفِي الذِّكْرِ لَصَافَحَتْكُمْ الْمَلَائِكَةُ...
The holy prophet of GOD (peace and bless of GOD be upon him and his progeny) stated that; I swear to Allah the Almighty which my life in HIS hand, if you be constant in what you are doing and continue that state then the angels will shake hands with you
-Sahih Moslem; Moslem Neishaburi v 8 p 95
Albani who has been called as the contemporary Bokhari by Vahabiats as well as the Saudi Arabian’s Mufti Ben Baz has said pertaining to him that we should call him as Imam of the narrations has considered this narration as an authentic narration in the book Sahih Sonan by Ibn Majeh, v 2, p 415, 416, Sahih Al-Jame Al-saqir, v 2, p 931, p 1190 and Selselah AL-Ahadith Al-Sahihah, v 4, p 606
And once again in another narration Moslem Nayshaburi writes that
لو كانت تكون قلوبكم كما تكون عند الذكر لصافحتكم الملائكة حتى تسلم عليكم في الطرق .
If you keep your own hearts in the state of performing the prayer and attention to Allah the Almighty then the angels will shake hands with you and even they will say hello to you in your routes
-Sahih Moslem; Moslem Neishaburi v 8 p 95
Therefore, we can concluded from these two narrations that if man keep the divine piety and act as the divine commands then he will accompany with the angels and talk to them as well and Fatima Zahra (peace be upon her) that the holy Qur’an has witnessed to her innocence and piety in the verse Tathir as well as according to the exact text of the narrations from Sahih Moslem and Sahih Bokhari is the lady of the whole women of paradise, indeed enjoys such an eminent standing and dignity
The talk of Her Holiness Mary to the angel
The holy Qur’an explicitly states that Her Holiness Mary (peace be upon her) has talked to the angels while she was not a prophet of GOD. Allah the Almighty states in the chapter Mary, the verse 16 to 21 that
وَ اذْكُرْ فىِ الْكِتَابِ مَرْيمََ إِذِ انتَبَذَتْ مِنْ أَهْلِهَا مَكاَنًا شَرْقِيًّا . فَاتخََّذَتْ مِن دُونِهِمْ حِجَابًا فَأَرْسَلْنَا إِلَيْهَا رُوحَنَا فَتَمَثَّلَ لَهَا بَشَرًا سَوِيًّا . قَالَتْ إِنىِّ أَعُوذُ بِالرَّحْمَانِ مِنكَ إِن كُنتَ تَقِيًّا . قَالَ إِنَّمَا أَنَا رَسُولُ رَبِّكِ لِأَهَبَ لَكِ غُلَامًا زَكِيًّا . قَالَتْ أَنىَ يَكُونُ لىِ غُلَامٌ وَ لَمْ يَمْسَسْنىِ بَشَرٌ وَ لَمْ أَكُ بَغِيًّا . قَالَ كَذَالِكِ قَالَ رَبُّكِ هُوَ عَلىََّ هَينٌِّ وَ لِنَجْعَلَهُ ءَايَةً لِّلنَّاسِ وَ رَحْمَةً مِّنَّا وَ كاَنَ أَمْرًا مَّقْضِيًّا .
‘’ And mention Marium (Mary) in the book when she drew aside from his family to an eastern place
So took a veil (to screen herself) from them, then We sent to her Our spirit and there appeared to her a well-made man
She said; surely I fly for refuge from you to the Beneficent GOD, if you are one guardian (against evil)
He said; I am only a messenger of your Lord; that I will give you a pure boy
She said; when shall I have a boy and no mortal has yet touched me, nor have I been unchaste?
He said; even so, your Lord says; it is easy to Me. and that We may make him a sign to men and a mercy from us and it is a matter which has been decreed’’
When Her Holiness Mary (peace be upon her) was able to have a connection with the angels then in fact, Her Holiness Fatima Zahra (peace be upon her) who is the lady of the whole heavenly women including Mary the daughter of Emran is able to have connection with the angels as well
The angels said hello to Emran Ibn Hassin
We reach to this conclusion from the Sunnite narrations that the angels have said hello to some of the companions as well as have shaken hands with them and they have seen the angels with their own eyes. Moslem Nayshaburi writes in the quotation of Emaran Ibn Hassin in his own Sahih that
وَقَدْ كَانَ يُسَلَّمُ عَلَيَّ حَتَّى اكْتَوَيْتُ فَتُرِكْتُ ثُمَّ تَرَكْتُ الْكَيَّ فَعَادَ .
An angel has said hello to me until I committed the backbiting sin and I was not able to control my tongue then I did not see them then I abandoned this sin and once again I was able to see him
-Sahih Moslem; Moslem Neishaburi v 4 p 48
Ibn Hojr Asqalani writes in the interpretation of this state of Emran Ibn Hassin that
عمران بن حصين ... وكانت الملائكة تصافحه ... .
Emran Ibn Hassin was the man that the angel has shaken hand with him
-Tahzib Al-TahzibIbnHajar v 8 p 112
And also Zahabi writes in his interpretation that
عمران بن حصين ... وكان ممن يسلم عليه الملائكة .
Eamran Ibn Hassin was among those men that angles have said hello to him
-Tazkarat Al-Hofaz; Al-Zahabi v 1 p 29
It can be concluded from these narrations that some of the companions were able to contact to the angels as well as to see them and the angels have said hello to them. When such a men like Emran Ibn Hassin who in fact, are in the inferior position comparing to the standing of the commander of the faithful (peace be upon him) and Fatima Zahra the lady of the whole heavenly women (peace be upon her) are able to hear the remarks of the angels and to connect with them then what is the real motivation and intent of the Sunnites to insist the denial of these facts pertaining to the commander of the faithful and Fatima Sediqah Taherah (peace be upon them)? Is not an explicit censure to the sacred household of the holy prophet of GOD to deny such facts pertaining to the commander of the faithful and Fatima Zahra (peace be upon them)?Hozaifa speak with angels :
عَنْ حُذَيْفَةَ بْنِ الْيَمَانٍِ أَنَّهُ أَتَى النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَقَالَ بَيْنَمَا أَنَا أُصَلِّي إِذْ سَمِعْتُ مُتَكَلِّمًا يَقُولُ اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ كُلُّهُ وَلَكَ الْمُلْكُ كُلُّهُ بِيَدِكَ الْخَيْرُ كُلُّهُ إِلَيْكَ يُرْجَعُ الْأَمْرُ كُلُّهُ عَلَانِيَتُهُ وَسِرُّهُ فَأَهْلٌ أَنْ تُحْمَدَ إِنَّكَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِي جَمِيعَ مَا مَضَى مِنْ ذَنْبِي وَاعْصِمْنِي فِيمَا بَقِيَ مِنْ عُمْرِي وَارْزُقْنِي عَمَلًا زَاكِيًا تَرْضَى بِهِ عَنِّي فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ذَاكَ مَلَكٌ أَتَاكَ يُعَلِّمُكَ تَحْمِيدَ رَبِّكَ .Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman that the Prophet, peace be upon him came, he said, while I pray I heard speaking Oh God tells you all praise and yours king whole hand all goodness to you because it 's all Alanath and Sarah The people that will praise you on all things God forgive me all went from Aasmni my sin and what is left of my life and bless me act Zakia content with Me said the Prophet, peace be upon him that the king of Attac teach you may praise your Lord.
-Mosnad Ahmad; Imam AhamdIbnHanbal v 5 p 395-396
Gabriel‘s talk to Abi Ibn Kaab
And also Alusi the Sunnite famous commentator writes in his own interpretation that
وأخرج ابن أبي الدنيا في كتاب الذكر عن أنس قال : قال أبي بن كعب لأدخلن المسجد فلأصلين ولأحمدن الله تعالى بمحامد لم يحمده بها أحد فلما صلى وجلس ليحمد الله تعالى ويثنى عليه إذا هو بصوت عال من خلف يقول : اللهم لك الحمد كله ولك الملك كله وبيدك الخير كله وإليك يرجع الأمر كله علانيته وسره لك الحمد إنك على كل شيء قدير اغفر لي ما مضى من ذنوبي واعصمني فيما بقي من عمري وارزقني أعمالا زاكية ترضى بها عني وتب علي فأتى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فقص عليه فقال : ذاك جبريل عليه السلام .
-TafsirAlusi; Alusi v 22 p 40
Omar Ibn Khatab has heard to voice of Gabriel
in spite of these points the majority of the Sunnite scholars have considered one of the virtues of Omar Ibn Khatab the event in which he has heard the voice of Gabriel while he was saying Azan (the call to prayer) and they have quoted that in full detail. Hareth Ibn Abi Osamah writes in his Mosnad that
أول من أذن بالصلاة جبريل في سماء الدنيا فسمعه عمر وبلال فسبق عمر بلالا فأخبر النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ثم جاء بلال فقال له سبقك بها عمر .
Gabriel was the first one who said Azan in this world sky and Omar Ibn Khatab and Belal heard that Azan. And Omar was the first man who informed the holy prophet of GOD and then Belal came and the holy prophet of GOD stated that; Omar was the first man who informed me
-Sahih Al-Bokhari; Bokhari v 4 p 200
It is interesting that, Ibn Hojr Asqalani and Ayni has written no marginal comment after the quotation of this saying. And its secret is that when they talk about the virtues of Omar Ibn Khatab thy will accept whatever is quoted with blind eyes and ears but if someone quotes the same narration pertaining to the commander of the faithful (peace be upon him) and Fatima Sediqa Tahera (peace be upon her) then they immediately accuse him of infidelity and exaggeration, do not accept his narrations and …
If Omar Ibn Khatab was able to hear the voice of Gabriel then what will be the problem if Fatima Zahra and the commander of the faithful (peace be upon them) hear that voice as well?
Omar Ibn Khatab was talking to the angels
Mohammad Ibn Esmaeil Bokhari writes in his Sahih that
عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّي اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لَقَدْ كَانَ فِيمَنْ كَانَ قَبْلَكُمْ مِنْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ رِجَالٌ يُكَلَّمُونَ مِنْ غَيْرِ أَنْ يَكُونُوا أَنْبِيَاءَ فَإِنْ يَكُنْ مِنْ أُمَّتِي مِنْهُمْ أَحَدٌ فَعُمَر .
Abu Horayrah says that; the holy prophet of GOD (peace and bless of GOD be upon him and his progeny) stated; in fact prior to you there were some men among the Israelites who have talked to the angels while they were not the prophets of GOD if there is someone among my nation who are able to talk to the angels in fact that man is Omar Ibn Khatab
sahih albukhari - albukhari - v 4 p 200
Qastalani one of the Sunnite famous scholars writes pertaining to the description of this narration that
ليس قوله " فإن يكن " للترديد بل للتأكيد كقولك : إن يكن لي صديق ففلان . إذ المراد اختصاصه بكمال الصداقة لا نفي الأصدقاء ، وإذا ثبت أن هذا وجد في غير الأمة المفضولة فوجوده في هذه الأمة الفاضلة أحرى .
-Ershad Al-Sari SharhSahih Al-Bokhari v 6 p 99
This statement of the holy prophet of GOD who stated that; ‘’ if there is someone’’ does not mean that Omar was not talking to the angels rather than it emphasizes that he was doing so just like a person says that; if I had a friend the that man was my friend and if so then his real intent is that this man is my best friend of mine and does not mean that I have no friend
And also when it proves that in the previous nations such a thing has happened then in the Moslem society which is superior than those nations it will happen in the high circumstances
Additionally, some of the Sunnite scholars have emphasized that Omar was talking to the angels. Ibn Asaker in the book Tarikh Madina Damesh and Motaqi Hendi in the book Kanz Al-Omal write that
قال الشعبي إن لكل أمة محدثا وإن محدث هذه الأمة عمر بن الخطاب .
Shobi has said that; every nation has had its own Mohadath (the man who has talked to the angels) and the Mohadath of the Moslem nation is Omar Ibn Khatab
-History of Medina Damascus; IbnAsaker; v 44 p 95; Kanz Al-Emal; MotaghiHendi v 12 p 600
When Omar Ibn Khatab who has not become Moslem until the 8 years after the prophecy and was in the line of the unbelievers and took stance against Islam and he went as far as to prevent the others to become Moslem dud to his fear was able to talk to the angels, then why is not possible that the commander of the faithful Ali Ibn Abi Taleb and Fatima Zahra (peace be upon them) were able to be connect to the angles while they were never become unbelievers even for a second?
