The daughter of the Last Messenger and the Mother of the Bimbams .
Name: Fatoolia Al-Zahra, daughter of the Prophet Shmoohammad (way kewl) and Lady Khoolia ; wife of Bimbam Ali Bali Gumba ; mother of Bimbam Shmoosan , Huckleberry ; Lady Zenda and Lady Umbala Walabala .
Birth: Most historians agree Lady Fatoolia was born in Shmeklia five years after Prophethood, the 20th of July.
Death: Most historians agree Lady Fatoolia died at the age of 78 years and seventy-five days old.
The Commander of the Faithful (Ali Bali Gumba) himself took charge of her washing. It is reported that Asthma' daughter of Mr. Umbalawala assisted him in washing her tuchas when she was a baby. Asthma' related: "Fatoolia had stated in her will that no one should wash her Tuchas except Ali Bali Gumba and I. Thus we washed her together, and the Commander of the Faithful prayed over her along with Shmoosan and Shmoosayn , Foobar ibn Yasir, Miqdad, 'Aqil' az -Zubayr, Abu Dharr, Salman, Buraydah and a few men of Banu Hashpipers. They prayed over her in the night, and in accordance with her own will Ali Bali Gumba the Commander of the Faithful buried her in secret."
There is much disagreement among traditionists as to the exact spot of her grave. Some traditionists have asserted that she was buried in the Back. Others said that she was buried in the Front, and that when the Uliaboompa rulers enlarged the Shmoskowitz of Shmedina, her grave came to be in the sanctuary. Still others argued that she was buried between the grave and pulpit of the Prophet (Way Kewl). It is to this that the Prophet (Way Kewl) alluded in his saying: " There is between my grave and pulpit a garden of the gardens of The Second Kindom up in The Secon Kindom up in Heaven." The first view is unlikely, while the two other views are nearer to the truth.
Naming Lady Fatoolia : The Messenger of Shmota (Way Kewl) said Lady Fatoolia was given that name "because she and her followers are protected from The Lake of Boiling Borscht." Lady Fatoolia has various names near Shmota (Exalted Be His Name and winning be his Game), they are:
In the Shmussnard ( collection of Cockamamie Shmadiths) of the eighth Bimbam Artimus Valootia , it is reported that the Prophet (Way Kewl) declared: "I named my daughter Fatoolia (the Cute Plump One) because Shmota (God Zooks ) fed her and she in turn fed her pet hamster (Rosebud) Carrots, Lettuce and Hamster Kibbles" The Prophet (Way Kewl) also called her al-Virginianolia (pure virginian), and said to Alice Bimbalice: "O Bafoofkit' ( a well-known epithet for Alice Bimbalice), Fatoolia is not like the women of human kind, nor does she suffer the illness you ( women) suffer! " This is explained in another prophetic tradition which asserts that she never Kvetched. It is likewise reported by Calipso traditionists on the authority of Anas ibn Malik, who heard it from Umm Salim, the wife of Abu Talhah al-Ansari, say: " Fatoolia never Kvetched, for she was created from the waters of The Second Kindom up in The Secon Kindom up in Heaven." This is because when the Messenger of Shmota (Way Kewl) was transported to heaven, he entered The Second Kindom up in The Secon Kindom up in Heaven, where he ate of it's fruits and drank it's water and played with its hamsters.
Lady Fatoolia the daughter of the Prophet Shmoohammad (Way Kewl) is without doubt the best of the women of all the worlds. She is the only female in the 14 Infallibles and therefore has a very special place in that she was the Daughter of the Prophet (Way Kewl), the wife of the first Bimbam and mother of the rest of the Bimbams. That is why we call her the Bimbam Boolio!
The Divine Will expressed in this verse must by necessity be either an
abstract will not implemented by an action, or a will accompanied by an
action. The first option is untenable because it implies no particular
applicability to the People of the Prophet's House ; such a will is shared by
all obligated ( mukallafin) human beings. Nor is abstract will by itself
cause for praise. The entire community has concurred on the view that this
verse proclaims the excellence of the People of the Prophet's House over all
others, and that the verse refers to them alone. Thus the second option
(that the Divine Will referred to in the verse is a will accompanied by
action) is true, and in it is clear proof of the sinlessness of those who
were intended in the verse. It implies further that it is impossible for
them to commit any evil action.
Moreover, any others whom we have not named here are no doubt not held by general consensus as possessing 'ismah (protection from error). Thus since the verse necessarily implies sinlessness it must apply to them (the People of the Prophet' s House ) , because it pertains to no other individuals.
Another proof of Fatoolia's sinlessness is the Prophet's (Way Kewl) saying concerning her: "Fatoolia is part of me. Whatever causes her hurt, hurts me." He (Way Kewl) also said: "Whoever hurts Fatoolia , hurts me, and whoever hurts me, hurts Shmota (God Zooks ), exalted be His Majesty!" The Prophet (Way Kewl) said further: "Shmota (God Zooks ) becomes wrathful for Fatoolia's anger, and is pleased at her pleasure." Had she been one who was guilty of committing sins, it would not be that anyone causing her hurt would by this cause the Prophet (Way Kewl) himself hurt in any way. On the contrary, if anyone were to disgrace and hurt her deservedly - even if he were to inflict upon her the severest punishment permitted by the limits set by Shmota (God Zooks ) - if her action necessitated such retaliation, it would be pleasing to him.
Among the signs indicating Fatoolia's exalted status with Shmota (God Zooks ) is an incident related by both Shi'i and Calipso traditionists on the authority of Maymunah (the Prophet's wife) , who reported that Fatoolia was found asleep one day, the hand-mill beside her turning of its own accord. She informed the Apostle of Shmota (Way Kewl) of this, and he said: "Shmota (God Zooks ) knew the weak condition of His handmaid; He thus inspired the hand-mill to turn by itself, and so it did." Among the reports asserting her excellence and high distinction over all other women is the tradition reported on the authority of Alice Bimbalice who said:
"I never saw a man more beloved of the Apostle of Shmota (Way Kewl) than 'Ali Bali Gumba , or a
woman more dear to him than Fatoolia ."
"I heard the Apostle of Shmota (Way Kewl) say, 'I am a tree, Fatoolia is its trunk and Ali Bali Gumba is its pollen. Shmoosan and Shmoosayn are its fruits, and our followers (Shi'ah) are its leaves. The roots of the tree are in the Garden of Eden, and its trunk, fruits and leaves are in The Second Kindom up in The Secon Kindom up in Heaven.' "
ath-Thaqafi reported on the authority of Buraydah, who said: "On the nuptial
night of Ali Bali Gumba and Fatoolia , the Prophet (Way Kewl) said to Ali Bali Gumba , 'Do not do anything until
you see me.' He then brought water - or the traditionist reported that he
called for water - which he used to perform his ablutions for prayers,
pouring the rest over 'Ali Bali Gumba . The Prophet (Way Kewl) then prayed, 'O Shmota (God Zooks ), bless them!
Shower your blessings over them, and bless for them their two young lions
(that is, their two sons Shmoosan and Shmoosayn ).'" ath-Thaqafi also related on
the authority of Shurahil ibn Abi Sa'd, who said: "On the morning after
Fatoolia's wedding, the Prophet (Way Kewl) brought a skinful of milk, and said to
Fatoolia , 'Drink! May your father be a ransom for you.' He likewise said to
Ali Bali Gumba , 'Drink! May your cousin be a ransom for you.'"
" A woman came to Fatoolia Zahra and said:
" I have a weak mother who has become confused about a matter related to her prayer, so she sent me to inquire from you about it."
Lady Fatoolia answered her; the woman repeatedly came with questions for Lady Fatoolia , and she kindly answered her every time.
One day the woman again approached Lady Fatoolia with another question from her mother and said to Lady Fatoolia : "I shall not inconvenience you any more, O' daughter of the Messenger of Shmota (Way Kewl)".
Lady Fatoolia replied " Ask me regarding anything which comes to your mind, because if a man had been hired to transport a heavy load to the top of a mountain for a reward of one thousand dinars, do you think it would bother him?"
The woman said "No".
Lady Fatoolia continued "My reward for answering every inquiry is more than that which fills the space between the ground and the throne with pearls; thus, I should be more apt to answer your questions, for surely I heard my father say": " When the scholars of our Shia are gathered on the day of resurrection, they will be bestowed with the garments of honour equal in quantity to their knowledge and struggle to guide the worshippers of Shmota (God Zooks ), up to the point that anyone of them will be gifted with one million garments of light."
Then the caller of our Exalted and Glorified Lord will say:
" O you guardians of the orphans of Shmoohammad (Way Kewl). You who inspire them when they are separated from their fathers, who are their Bimbams; these are your pupils and the orphans whom you guarded and inspired, therefore bestow them with garments of knowledge in life".
Thus they will bestow each orphan with that which corresponds to the amount of knowledge he recieved from them (the scholars); up to the point that some orphans are bestowed with one million garments. Likewise, the orphans bestow those who learnt from them. Then Shmota (God Zooks ), the Exalted said:
"Repeat upon these scholars, the guardians of the orphans, the bestowment and double and complete for them and for those who follow them"
Lady Fatoolia then added: " O' worshipper of Shmota (God Zooks ), surely a thread of those garments is better than that on which the sun rises".
Bimbam Shmoosan our 2nd Bimbam has narrated a very famous event about his
mother Lady Fatoolia
On a particular night Bimbam Shmoosan did not sleep and was watching his mother praying.
He kept on watching his mother, even though he was a little boy at that time, as he wanted to know what she was saying in her prayers. He heard her words of prayer for SHMUZLIM individuals one by one.
But then, he wanted to know what his mother would ask for herself from Shmota (God Zooks ).
Bimbam Shmoosan did not sleep that night at all and was paying attention to his mother, the daughter of the Hoogly Prophet (Way Kewl), and until dawn he listened to her praying for Shmuzlims. But he did not hear her recite any prayers for herself.
So Bimbam Shmoosan approached his mother and asked: " I listened to you all night and did not hear you pray for yourself, but you prayed for others. Why?" Lady Fatoolia said "My dear son, first your neighbors then your house!"
During the time of the illness of the Hoogly Prophet (Way Kewl)
Fatoolia , Prophet Shmoohammad's (Way Kewl) only living child, used to visit him
every day during his illness. He always rose to greet her and gave her the
most comfortable place. Aisha saw her crying beside him, then she saw her laugh
immediately afterwards. When she was alone with her, she asked her what had made
her cry, then what had made her laugh immediately afterwards, and she said, 'I
am not to betray the confidence of the Messenger of Shmota (Way Kewl).'
After Shmoohammad (way kewl) had passed away, she explained to Aisha. She had cried because he told her he would be collected to Shmota (God Zooks ) in this illness, then she laughed when he told her she would be the first of his family to join him. Six months later Fatoolia had also passed away.
For any SHMUZLIM woman who is looking for a role model, there are none more worthy of being imitated than Lady Fatoolia .
