In the name of Allah, The Beneficent, The MercifulAll praise is due Allah who created mankind and made for them an example to follow throughout their fiercebattle with evil.Prophet Muhammad (S) was the last apostle sent by Allah to communicate to mankind His Divine code (i.e.Islam). Because this code was a comprehensive one, it also dealt with the needs of women throughout history,and assigned a perfect example for them to prove beyond doubt that what Islam preaches is practical and, if properly followed, leads to everlasting felicity. This example set by Islam to women was manifested in theperson of Lady Fatima Zahra (A), daughter of Allah's Messenger.Yet, the English Library lacks a comprehensive book in regard to her life; so I was asked to take upon myself the duty of translating the work of a profound Shiite speaker - Muhammad Kazim Qazwini- entitled FatimaZahra Min Al-Mahde Ila al-Lahd, into English. As I was translating, I found the book to be in the form of speeches regarding the successive events of Fatima's life; therefore I decided to depend mainly on the said book for recording Fatima's biography until the time of the Prophet's death. Because of the extremely sensitive periodwhich followed his death, and the everlasting effects which the events thereafter left upon the Islamic ideologyand the structure of various Muslim sects and issues, I deemed it necessary to study various historical books,especially those which dealt with Lady Fatima Zahra's life, to come up with the most accurate informationregarding the prime of the post-period of the Prophet's death. Moreover, various sermons, which were deliveredduring those events, were intentionally included in the book-especially Fatima's speeches-so as to allowresearchers to study the said historical events independently.The main books on which I depended in bringing about the book at hand were:1. Fatima Zahra Min al-Mahde Ila al Lahdwritten in Arabic by Muhammad Kazim Qazwini: pp.6802. Fatima Zahra (A) Banou-ya Namoune-ye Islamwritten in Persian by Ibrahim Amini: pp. 2463. Fatima Zahra (A) Umme Abihawritten in Arabic by Fadhl Hussaini Milani: pp. 2034. Fadak Fi al-Tarikhwritten in Arabic by Ayatullah Sayyid Muhammad Baqir Sadr: pp. 1525. The Messagein English- written in Persian by Allama Ja'far Subhani: pp. 7816. The Early History of Islam,in English, written by Sayyid Safdar Hussain: pp.358

7. Al-Mizan, English translation,written by Allama Syed Muhammad Hussain Tabatabai: v. 18. Nahjul Balagha, by Imam Ali (A).In conclusion, it is most accurate to state that this book will be very useful not only to information-seekingreaders, but also to researchers and history students.Many thanks are extended to Br. Muhammad Taqi Ansariyan for giving me the opportunity to serve the causeof this Great Lady of all times.I beseech Allah to supply us all with his abundant mercy, which overwhelms every living thing, and to guide alltruth seekers to His right path. May His peace, blessings, and grace be upon Muhammad and his righteousprogeny.Abu - Muhammad Ordoni (Jordanian)Qum, Zulhijja 20, 1407 A.H. August 16, 1987
