Imam Abu Ja'far Al-Baqir (AS) said:
"When Fatima wasborn, Allah(S) (Exalted is His Name) revealed to an angel to speak the name Fatima withMuhammad's tongue. Allah then said: "Ihave bestowed knowledge upon youand safeguarded you from menstruation
Then Abu Ja'far (A)added:
"By Allah, Allah (Blessed and Exalted is His Name)bestowed knowledgeon her and safeguarded her frommenstruation with thecovenant."
Imam Sadiq (AS)said:
"Fatima has ninenames near Allah(Exalted be HisName), they are:Fatima, Siddiqah (thehonest), Al-Mubarakah (theblessed one), At-Tahirah (virtuous), Az- Zakiyah (the chaste), Ar-Radhiatul Mardhiah (she who isgratified and whoshall be satisfied), Al-Muhaddathah (a person, other than a prophet, that theangels speak to), and Az-Zahra (thesplendid)."

WheneverImam Ali (A.S.) calledFatima (SA), headdressed her by"Daughter of theProphet (P.B.U.H.)"and Fatima (S.A.)would address him as"Ameer ulMomineen" (the Chief of the Faithfuls).
