The marriage of Imam Ali (P.B.U.H.) with Lady Fatima (P.B.U.H.)

Today is the wedding (marriage) anniversary of Imam Ali (P.B.U.H.) and Lady Fatima (P.B.U.H.). Cooperation, piety and goodness are among the pillars of the common life of these two nobles. During her life which was full of ups and downs, Lady Zahra never asked Imam Ali (P.B.U.H.) for something that would be difficult for Imam Ali (P.B.U.H.) to fulfill.

"He created for you spouses from yourselves, so that you may take comfort in them, and He put between you love and compassion. Most surely, there are signs in that for a people who reflect." [1]

Islam is the pursuer of revelatory purposes on the issue of marriage. According to Islam, the main and the most fundamental issue is forming a family, and certainly, the most important issue of today's world is the challenges in this field.

Since there are many obstacles in the way of today's marriages, it could be said that it is too difficult to form a strong centrality like the family. The main reason for the occurrence of such problems in marriage, along with cultural barriers, poor research and incomplete studies, is the lack of knowledge related to this issue based on the Qur'an and the life of the Ahl-ul-Bayt (P.B.U.them). Certainly and surely, the use of Quranic transcendental concepts and imitation of the lives of the infallible Imams (P.B.U.them) will solve many of the problems in this realm.

The first of Zi-Hajjah (July 1st) has been named as the wedding day due to the anniversary of the heavenly marriage of Imam Ali (P.B.U.H.) and Lady Fatima (P.B.U.H.), so in this article, we will take a brief look at the common life of these two nobles.

The marriage

The marriage of Imam Ali (P.B.U.H.) and Lady Fatima (P.B.U.H.) happened based on the divine revelation and by the Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H.) and with the heartfelt satisfaction of both nobles. Imam Ali (P.B.U.H.) started his common life at the age of 21 and Lady Fatima (P.B.U.H.) at the age of 9 on the first of Zi-Hajjah in the second year of A.H. (Lunar calendar).

Fatima (P.B.U.H.) is a personage in whom all the divine and almighty manifestations are gathered. According to history, after staying in a marriage covenant with Imam Ali (P.B.U.H.), she remained on her covenant until the last day.

Cooperation, piety, and goodness are the pillars of the common life of these two nobles. During her ups and downs, Zahra never asked Imam Ali (as) what was difficult for Imam Ali (as) to do.

Ali(P.B.U.H.)’s cooperation with Fatima (P.B.U.H.) in the household chores was in a way that each of them was ahead of the other to do them. One of the desirable manifestations of the life of these two nobles is to divide the duties justly and wisely. It is wise in the sense that it has been done on the basis of the spiritual and physical structure and social expediency. It is just because it was performed by the Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H.) a way that he allocated the affairs inside the house to Fatima (P.B.U.H.) and the work outside the house to Ali (P.B.U.H.).

The affection and fondness of Imam Ali (P.B.U.H.) and Lady Fatima (P.B.U.H.) for each other is so vast and deep that when the Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H.) asked Lady Fatima: "my Honey girl Fatima, how is the behavior of your husband Ali (P.B.U.H.) with you?", Fatima (P.B.U.H.) immediately replied:“it is good, very good. However, the women of Quraysh blame me: “Your father made you married to someone who lacks worldly possessions.”

The Prophet replied:

“Your father and your husband are not poor. God offered me the treasures of the earth from gold and silver. God Almighty looked at the inhabitants of the world and chose two people among all: me who is your father and Ali (P.B.U.H.) who is your husband. Your husband is the best wife and I prevent you from disobeying him.

Since every man needs strong morale to solve various problems outside the house, Fatima (P.B.U.H.) is also aware of this issue exactly and is aware of the sensitive and high position of her husband Ali (P.B.U.H.). That’s why all her efforts were to create a calm environment inside the house. Imam Ali (P.B.U.H.) expressed Fatima(P.B.U.H.)’s behavior as follows: Fatima (P.B.U.H.) never resented me and she never harassed me, I did not force her to do anything and she did not bother me. Whenever I came home and looked at her (P.B.U.H.), all my sorrow and grief would get eliminated.

Lady Fatimah (P.B.U.H.) was a source of hope and encouragement for Ali (P.B.U.H.) in all political and military struggles, and in the absence of her husband, she managed the house and the children well.

Whenever Imam Ali (pbuh) returned from the battlefield, Fatima (pbuh) would rush to greet him and look at him with an open face and a smile that indicated honor.

Yes! throughout history, few houses can be found whose two basic elements, the wife and the husband, are both innocent and have the position of guardianship and human perfections.

But to be the daughter of the Prophet never caused Fatima (P.B.U.H.) to do what God is dissatisfied with and to ask for something that Ali (P.B.U.H.) could not do, and Imam Ali (P.B.U.H.) never tried to do -due to his being the ruler of the Islamic society- anything that God is dissatisfied with. And Imam Ali (P.B.U.H.) never dealt with Fatima from the position of power and dominance.

Undoubtedly, the speeches and deeds of Ali (P.B.U.H.) and Fatima (P.B.U.H.) are the superior model of marriage in the Islamic society. A model that is certainly correct and reliable and its achievement is the children who were trained in the arms of these two nobles and themselves created a special epic.
