4th Day of the Commemoration of the Maulud of Sayyidah Fatima (A.S)
The sitting started at about 3:30PM, opened by some poems by some poets followed by a drama presented by the I.M Production. Malama Zeenah Ibraheem presented a speech about the life of Sayyidah Zahra (AS) and the life of Imam Khomeini (QS), and she portrayed both as a symbol of struggle. She concluded by mentioning, we cannot say we love Sayyidah Zahra (AS) and accept to live under oppression because she was a symbol of freedom. Sayyid Zakzaky arrived at about 5:30 and started his speech by praising Allah (SWT), the holy prophet and his holy progeny. He rejoiced with the Muslim ummah the maulud of Sayyidah Zahra (AS). He continued saying, “Sayyidah Fatima (A.S) who was honored by Allah (SWT) the honor that was not giving to another woman, not just because she was the daughter of the prophet she works for the honor bestowed upon her”. . Sayyidah Fatima’s honor is an honor to all women, which is why we consider her birthday to be the best day to celebrate the world women’s day, because she is the leader of women of all time. He concluded by speaking of how we should relate to the life of Sayyidah Zahra (AS) most especially in her family life, mentioning that we have to compare our lives with hers to see where we need to correct. Sayyid Zakzaky later headed the Isha’ain prayers, then a dinner, followed by cake cutting and the lunching of the documentary on the life of imam Khomeini ‘Ruhullah’ (dubbed to Hausa language) then the closing prayer by Sayyid Zakzaky (H).
