The daughter of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h), Bibi Fatima Zahra (s.a) was always generous. No one turned away empty-handed from her door. The very next day of her wedding she gave away her new dress to a beggar at her door and kept the old one for herself.
When another poor man who had come asking for food arrived at the Masjid, the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) sent him with his companion, Ammar ibne Yasir to the house of Bibi Fatima (s.a). She had no food to give him but gave away her necklace to be sold so that his needs could be met.
One day she gave her a veil, (chadar) to be kept as surety at a pawn shop so that money could be brought to buy food for a poor man. Once when Imam Hasan (a.s) and Imam Hussain (a.s) were taken ill, the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) advised her to make a vow to fast for three days.
When they were better, all the family including Bibi Fizza (s.a), the maid, fasted. Just after sunset, when it was time to break the fast and eat, there was someone at the door, “I am needy O family of Muhammad (p.b.u.h), help me.”
Imam Ali (a.s), Bibi Fatima (s.a), Imam Hasan (a.s), Imam Hussain (a.s), and Bibi Fizza (s.a) all gave up their share to the needy man and had nothing but the water that night. The next day they spent the day fasting and as they were ready to break their fast there was a voice at the door, “Help me I am an orphan & need food.” Again all of them gave their food to orphans, staying hungry for the 2nd night. On the 3rd day of the fast as they were ready to eat, a captive called out, “Help I’m hungry.” For the 3rd time, the family of the Prophet gave away all they had.
Then Angel Jibraeel came to the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) with the verses of the Surah e Dahr: “And they feed for the love of Allah, the needy, the orphan and the captive.” Allah praised their actions and promised them rewards in the highest Heaven.
Following Bibi Fatima’s (s.a) example, we must help others and be generous. Those who are in need, the orphans and the poor should be helped for the sake of Allah. Bibi Fatima (s.a) has shown us that she was ready to give whatever she had to help others.
She gave to others even when she needed it herself. Following her example, we should be ready to help others and share what Allah has given us.
