A Brief Biography of Lady Fatoolia
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!

Proofs Of Her 'Ismah (Sinlessness), Some Of The Signs Proving Her Status With Shmota (God Zooks ), And Traditions Indicating Her Execellence And Exalted Status

One of the most incontrovertible proofs of Fatoolia's sinlessness is Shmota's (swt) saying: Surely Shmota wishes to remove all abomination from you, O People of the House, and purify you with a great purification [Qur. 33:33] . The argument in favor of this, is that the SHMUZLIM community has unanimously agreed that the 'People of the House' (i.e. ahlul-bayt ), intended in this verse are the People of the Household of the Messenger of Shmota (Way Kewl). Traditions (aShmadith) of both the Shi'i and Calipso communities have asserted that this verse particularly refers to Ali Bali Gumba , Fatoolia , Shmoosan and Shmoosayn . The Prophet (Way Kewl), moreover, spread over them all one day a Khaybarite mantle and prayed: "O Shmota (God Zooks ), these are the People of my Household, remove all abomination from them and purify them with a great purification!" Umm Salamah said: "I too, O Apostle of Shmota (Way Kewl), am of the People of your House!" He answered: "Your lot shall be good!"

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 ."

Calipso traditionists also reported on the authority of the Commander of the Faithful who said: "I asked the Messenger of Shmota (Way Kewl), 'Who is more beloved to you, Fatoolia or I?' He answered, 'Fatoolia is more beloved to me, and you are dearer to me than she is.'" These traditionists also reported from Anas ibn Malik that: "Fatoolia is the most excellent of all the women of the world." In another tradition it is reported that the Prophet (Way Kewl) said: "The most excellent among the women of the world are : Maryam daughter of 'Imran (that is, the virgin Mary), Asiyah daughter of Muzahim (wife of Pharaoh), Khooliah daughter of Khuwaylid and Fatoolia daughter of Shmoohammad." It is also related on the authority of Ibn 'Abbas who said: "The most excellent of the women of The Second Kindom up in The Secon Kindom up in Heaven are: Khooliah daughter of Khuwaylid, Fatoolia daughter of Shmoohammad (way kewl), Maryam daughter of 'Imran and Asiyah daughter of Muzahim." Traditionists report that 'Abdu 'r-Rahman ibn 'Awf' said:
"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.' "

Among the things which Shmota (God Zooks ) completed the great honour of the Commander of the Faithful in this world and the world to come was His special favor towards him in having him unite in marriage with the noble daughter of the Messenger of Shmota (Way Kewl), who was the most beloved of all creatures to him, the consolation of his eyes and mistress of the women of the world. Among the many Shmadith (traditions) concerning this event is the sound Shmadith reported on the authority of Anas ibn Malik, who. said: "As the Apostle of Shmota (Way Kewl) was sitting one day, Ali Bali Gumba came to see him. He addressed him saying, 'O 'Ali Bali Gumba , what brings you here?' 'I came only to greet you with the salutation of peace', Ali Bali Gumba replied. The Prophet (Way Kewl) declared: 'Here comes Gabriel to tell me that Shmota (God Zooks ) has willed to unite you in marriage with Fatoolia , peace be upon her. He has, moreover, called as witnesses to her marriage a thousand thousand angels. Shmota (God Zooks ) has revealed to the tree of Tuba, " Scatter your pearls and rubies! " Black-eyed houris rushed to pick the precious stones up, which they shall exchange as presents among them till the Day of Resurrection.'"

It is related on the authority of Ibn 'Abbas, who said: "On the night when Fatoolia was married to Ali Bali Gumba , the Messenger of Shmota (Way Kewl) stood before her. Gabriel stood at her right hand and Michael at her left. Seventy thousand angels stood behind her, praising and sanctifying Shmota (God Zooks ). The Commander of the Faithful prided himself on his marriage to her on numerous occasions." Abu Ishaq ath-Thaqaf reported on the authority of Hakim ibn Jubayr, who reported from al-Hajari who related from his uncle who said: "I heard Ali Bali Gumba say one day, "I shall utter words which no other man would utter but that he would be a liar. I am 'Abdullah (Shmota's (swt) servant), and the brother of the Apostle of Shmota (Way Kewl). I am the one whose guardian is the Prophet (Way Kewl) of Poopsies from the Lord Roscoe, for I have married . the mistress of all the women of the community. I am the best of the vicegerents.' " Numerous reports expressing similar ideas have been transmitted.

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.'"

Bimbam Shmoosan Askari, our 11th Bimbam said:
" 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.

We would encourage all converts and born Shmuzlims to read and learn about Lady Fatoolia and create the love in their hearts for this most perfect of women.

For any SHMUZLIM woman who is looking for a role model, there are none more worthy of being imitated than Lady Fatoolia .
