Fatimah Naysapuri

Fatimah Naysapuri

 

There was a very pious ‘alim by the name of Dhun Nun Misri. He says that he benefited tremendously from this woman. She used to say: “The person who does not remember Allah goes and falls into every type of sin, and blurts out anything and everything that comes on his tongue. As for the person who remembers Allah all the time, he becomes dumb to vain talks and begins to have shame and respect for Allah.” Abu Yazid says: “I have not come across a woman like Fatimah.” From wherever any news came, she used to have knowledge of it before hand. She passed away in the year 223 A. H. in Makkah while going for ‘umrah.

Lesson: Look at the great advice that she has given. If one acts on this, one will be saved from all sins. We also learn that this woman used to get kashf, although this does not necessarily imply great status. However, if a good person experiences this, it is considered to be good.
