.. لم تكن امرأة عادية، بل هي كائن ملكوتي تجلّى في الوجود بصورة إنسان، بل كائن إلهي جبروتي ظهر على هيئة امرأة. إنها المرأة التي تتحلى بجميع خصال الأنبياء.. المرأة التي لو كانت رجلاً لكانت نبياً … لو كانت رجلاً لكانت بمقام رسول الله
حوار مع فضل الله حول الزهراء ع – السيد هاشم الهاشمي
The status of [Fatimah] Al-Zahra (as) in the words of Imam Khomeini:
‘[Fatimah) wasn’t an ordinary woman, she was rather an angelic being that manifested itself in the form of an human being. In fact, she was a divine and omnipotent being that [merely] appeared in the form of a woman … Indeed, all qualities of all Prophets are found in her … A woman, if born as a man, would have been a Prophet … and if born as a man would have reached the status of the Messenger of Allah … [Khomeini’s speech on ‘Women’s Day’ 16/05/1989]
Ghuluww (exaggeration) upon Ghuluww, in fact blatant kufr, and if those statements are not kufr then what constitutes kufr? Calling Fatimah literally the one and only goddess?Does the average Shiite really feel comfortable reading Khomeini’s statments that could have emerged from the mouth of a Catholic Bishop (just replace Fatimah’s name with Mary …)?!
No doubt, the lofty status of lady Fatimah (peace be upon her) is known, acknowledged and undisputed, however, where in the Qur’an and Sunnah do we ever find Allah and His Messenger describing her (or even her father!) as Khomeini did?
In fact, any truth-seeking mind and heart that analyses the Qur’an and the Sunnah will realise how far Khomeini and his likes are from Fatimah and her father, the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him), who always reminded the people around his family and his family themselves that they are fallible humans like everybody else:
By Allah, if Fatimah, the daughter of Muhammad stole, I would cut off her hand.” [Bukhari Vol. 4 : No. 681]
When Allah revealed the Verse: “Warn your nearest kinsmen,” Allah’s Apostle got up and said, “O people of Quraish (or said similar words)! Buy (i.e. save) yourselves (from the Hellfire) as I cannot save you from Allah’s Punishment; O Bani Abd Manaf! I cannot save you from Allah’s Punishment, O Safiya, the Aunt of Allah’s Apostle! I cannot save you from Allah’s Punishment; O Fatimah daughter of Muhammad! Ask me anything from my wealth, but I cannot save you from Allah’s Punishment.” [Bukhari, Vol. 4, Book 51, Number 16]
Mind you, Shia apologists will find 1001 ways to somehow justify the abhorrent statements of Khomeini, quoting ‘mystics’ and other esoterical deviants whose language the ‘commoners’ don’t grasp … a language unknown to the early generation of Islam, unknown to its Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and Fatimah (peace be upon her) herself.
