Fatimah (SWT) is a part of Me.......

When Our Lady Fatimah (SWT) was infromed of this question . Her Holiness replied that the best thing for a women is that her glance never falls on a male stranger and the glance of a male stranger does not fall on her

When this answer reached The Holy Prophet (SAWS), His Holiness was rejoiced and said:

“—-Fatimah (SWT) is a part of me (His Holiness The Prophet of Islam (SAWS)”.

Ibn Al-Maghazili mentions in his book Manaqib that (His Holiness) Ali ibn Al-Hussain ibn Ali (A.S) said:

“Once a blind man asked for permission to enter Fatima’s (Her Holiness) house

but she kept a veil between them. The Messenger of Allah (SAWS) noticed her

(Our Lady Fatimah (SWT)) actions and asked:

`Why did you (Her Holiness(SWT)) keep a veil between you (Her Holiness (SWT))

when he cannot see you?”

Her Holiness Fatimah (SWT) answered :` Messanger of Allah, it is true that

he cannot see me (Her Holiness (SWT)), but I (Her Holiness (SWT)) can see

him and he can smell my (Her Holiness (SWT)) fragrance.’

At this, the Prophet (SAWS) said : “I bear witness that you are part of me”.
