Aqad e Bibi Fatima and Moula Ali as A Spiritual Bond

It is stated that when Bibi Fatima (s.a.) turned age and was set to get married, the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H) started getting proposals for His daughter from different tribes. Hazrat Salman Farsi(as.) and Hazrat Umm-e-Salma(sa.) narrate that

“When Bibi Fatima(s.a.) arrived at the age of marriage, the prominent individuals among the people of Quraish began submitting requests to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) but the Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H) did not show consent to any of them, saying that He had been waiting for the command of Allah(swt) regarding this particular matter.

The History Of Aqad e Bibi Fatima and Moula Ali as

Hazrat Umm-e-Salma says that on a certain day, Imam Ali (AS) came to the residence of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.). Imam Ali (AS) walked in and embraced the Prophet (PBUH), and the Prophet (PBUH) did exactly the same. Imam Ali (AS) sat down, and he was so humbled that he couldn’t say a word.

Kept looking at the ground in silence and couldn’t say anything. The Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H) smiled and told Imam Ali (AS) that He knew what Imam Ali (AS) had to say, but He’d like to hear it directly from Himself. He advised Imam Ali (AS) not to be hesitant and to say whatever was on His mind.

Hazrat Umm-e-Salma (as.) says, “I was observing this at a distance, and I witnessed that as soon as Imam Ali (AS) finished His request, Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H)’s facial expression lit up, as he asked Imam Ali (AS), “What do you have to do this ?” Imam Ali (AS) said, “O Prophet of Allah (swt), you are aware of my situation extremely well.

I purely have a sword, my battle attire, and a single camel.” The Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) told Ali, “You require your sword and camel for Jihad and journey, but your battle dress could be helpful.

I have some good news for you, Abul Hassan (AS)  Allah (swt) has already decided on your marriage to my daughter Fatima (SA) and recited your Nikah on  the Arsh. Just before you came, Allah (swt) sent a heavenly messenger to tell me this wonderful news.”

“Maarij an-Nabuwwah” also says that Hazrat Jibraiel (AS) told the Aqad e Bibi Fatima and Moula Ali recited on the Arsh. He said, “O Messenger of Allah(swt), Allah(swt) has selected you and made you the most beloved and high-ranking of His beings.

He also selected Imam Ali(AS) as your son-in-law and ordered the Nikah of your daughter and the servant of Allah(swt). Allah (swt) set up their Nikah in such a way that He told the people who lived in Jannah to wear Ornaments from paradise and then told all of the angels to meet on the 4th Sky.

He then filled the fourth sky with Noor as well as told Hazrat Adam (AS) to start the Nikah process by reciting the Khutba. After Hazrat Adam (AS) gave His sermon, Allah (SWT) told an angel called Raheel to say the Hamd. Raheel is the most attractive and has the most beautiful voice of all the angels.

After he said the Hamd, Allah (SWT) informed Hazrat Jibraiel (AS) that He had chosen Imam Ali (AS) for the beloved daughter of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and that go and make an announcement of the ceremony. Hazrat Jibraiel stated that I did what I was ordered and had all the angels witness the marvelous ceremony. Then Allah (swt) told me to write down everything that had happened on the silken fabric of Jannah and give it to my Messenger (PBUH).

As the Aqad e Bibi Fatima and Moula Ali As was so important, Allah (SWT) set up the celebration on Arsh and then Himself decided to recite the Nikah of Imam al-Mutaqeen, Amir al momineen Ali ibn Abi Talib (AS) with Bibi Fatima (SA), who is the crown of all women in paradise.

Aqad e Bibi Fatima and Moula Ali As held on Earth.

The Holy Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) took Imam Ali (AS) to the mosque and told him to sell his war attire to meet the expenditures. Some tales say that the outfit was sold for 400 dirhams. The money was given to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.), who gave it to Hazrat Salman Farsi (as.) and Hazrat Bilal (as.) and told them to go to the marketplace and purchase some useful things. As gifts for Bibi Fatima (SA), they went to a marketplace and purchased the following things.

When the Jahez goods arrived, the Holy Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) went to Bibi Fatima (SA) and told her, “Your Nikah has been conducted on the Arsh by Allah (SWT) with my cousin Ali (AS), and He has told me to recite your Nikah on the land as well. I’ve gathered my companions to witness me do this, and now I want your permission to conduct this Nikah.”

When Bibi Fatima Zahra (SA) heard this, she bent her head humbly to show that she agreed. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) got out of Her hujra and told Hazrat Bilal (as.) to gather all the Ansaar and Muhajireen.

When all of His companions were gathered, the Holy Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H) continued the Hamd of Allah (swt) and told them that Jibraiel (as) had told me that Allah (swt) has decided to marry Hazrat Ali (AS) my daughter on the Arsh and command me to conduct the same thing on earth. 

The Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said the khutba of the Aqad e Bibi Fatima and Moula Ali. The Nikah was made official after Imam Ali (AS) said yes. Both Imam Ali (AS) and the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) did Sajda-e-Shukr to thank God, and all of their companions who were there to celebrate congratulated both of them.

When He got there, the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) put Bibi Fatima’s (SA) hand in the hand of Imam Ali (AS) and said:

“May Allah bless my daughter. O Ali, this is Fatima; she belongs to you. O Ali, Fatima is a great wife!

And then said: O my daughter Fatima, Ali is such a great being! May Allah, bless them, their lives, and their kids.

O Allah, I love them more than any other of your beings, so please love them too and save them and keep them in your eyes, I ask you to protect them and their children from the cursed devil and evil eyes.

“When Bibi Fatima was taken to Imam Ali’s house on the evening of her wedding, the Prophet went ahead of Her, Gibraiel (as) was on her right, Michael (as)was on Her left, and 70,000 angels went behind her.” All night long, these angels thanked and praised Allah.

 The Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) asked Imam Ali (AS) to hold a dinner (walima) because Allah (swt) likes people who do this and because it does beneficial things for society, like bringing people together and spreading love and harmony.

The people were invited for a meal in celebration of Aqad e Bibi Fatima and Moula Ali. Men and women came to His residence from all over Madinah. They consumed their meals and took food home with them too. On that particular day, The Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H.) asked for food containers to be brought, filled them, and sent with them. He also left a special container for Bibi Fatima (SA) and Her spouse.
