Shahadat of Bibi Masuma-e-Qum

Holy Lady Fatemah Ma'soomah

Her childhood

In the holy city of Medina, the holy household was awaiting the arrival of a new born.  In the house of Imam Kadhim (A.S.), Najma, the wife of the honourable Imam was eagerly looking forward to the arrival of the child; she was counting days and nights for that day. The Imam's house was overwhelmed with happiness.  Finally, the day arrived, on the 1st of Dhil-Qa'dah 173 (A.H.) when Allah blessed the 7th Imam Musa Kadhim (A.S.) with a daughter. The child's appearance was brilliant and cheerful and she opened her pure bright eyes to this world in the house of Imam.

All the members of the Holy Household were in utter happiness for the newborn and after the Imam, may be there was not anybody as happy
