A documentary looking at the sermon of lady Fatima Zahra before her martyrdom as she pleads for her rights that were taken away from her.


The Martyrdom of Lady Fatimah az-Zahra (peace be upon her)
The death of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his family) affected her very much and she was very sad and grief-stricken and wept her heart out crying all the time. She was confronted, after the demise of her father, with the deprivement of the rightful claim of leadership of her husband Imam Ali, and the usurpation of her inheritance, the Fadak. Throughout her life, she never spoke to those who had oppressed her and deprived her of her rightful claims. She requested that her oppressors should be kept away even from attending her funeral. . .


Medina: the Roots of Karbala
It was right after the Prophet was martyred. While he was still unburied, some of the people in Medina rushed to select the next ruler at Saqifa. Imam Ali (peace be upon him) and some of the Prophet's close companions stayed far from that. The events that soon unfolded became a tragedy in themselves. And this tragedy was the path that paved the road for the enemies of Ahlul Bayt to commit those heinous acts on the 10th of Muharram. One wonders how such injustice can happen. But how can we be surprised when the daughter of the Prophet, shortly after her father's death, was beaten with the whip. . .


The Lady Who Was Buried In Secret]
When the Prophet died, Imam Ali and Lady Fatima's rights were taken away by the oppressors. Those same oppressors demanded that Imam Ali give allegiance to an illegitimate ruler. Because Imam Ali would not give in, they sent a gang to his house. Ahen Lady Fatima refused to open the door and asked the criminals to leave, the leader of the gang ordered his hoodlums to bring some wood and burn their way inside the house. . .


Lessons from the Will of Lady Fatima to Imam Ali
Before Lady Fatima (peace be upon her) departed from this world, she asked Imam Ali (peace be upon him) to execute her will, in which lie many lessons and treasures of knowledge for us which we can all benefit from. Al-Zahra eloquently summarized in her will the major pitfalls (from a wife's perspective) that can destroy a marriage, by pointing out the three main faults: Lying, betrayal and disobedience. These three faults encompass all other faults and one can be confident that if there was anything missing, she would have mentioned it. . .
