Fatimah Zahra (PBUH), a leader in the true sense of the word
Iranians celebrate the birth anniversary of a highly revered figure within the world of Islam and the daughter of Prophet Muhammad, Lady Fatima Zahra which also marks Mother’s Day in the Islamic Republic of Iran. “Fatima is above all women of the world, from the very first to the last one of them,” the Prophet had seemingly been heard as repeatedly saying. Lady Fatima Zahra was born on the 20th of Jamadi al-Thani, five years after the Prophet received revelations from Gabriel the Angel in Mecca. The Iranians celebrate her birth anniversary coincident with Mother’s Day to honor the status and character of women.
