Sayyidatuna Umm-e-Kulsoom رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا is the [maternal] granddaughter of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم, beloved daughter of Sayyiduna ‘Ali-ul-Murtada and Sayyidatuna Fatima-tuz-Zahra رَضِیَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُمَا, and sister of the chiefs of the youth of Paradise, Hasnayn Karimayn رَضِیَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُمَا.
She رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا was born six year after the migration. Moreover, she was also blessed with the privilege of beholding the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. (Siyar A’laam-un-Nubala, vol. 5, pp. 22)
It is narrated that Ameer-ul-Mu`mineen, Sayyiduna ‘Umar Farooq-e-A’zam رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ said to Maula ‘Ali Shayr-e-Khuda کَـرَّمَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی وَجۡـھَـهُ الۡـکَـرِیۡم: O ‘Ali! Marry your daughter to me; because I heard the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم saying that ‘on the Day of Judgement, every lineage and relation will break off except my lineage and relation. (Therefore, make me your relative). So Maula ‘Ali-ul-Murtada کَـرَّمَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی وَجۡـھَـهُ الۡـکَـرِیۡم married his daughter, Sayyidatuna Umm-e-Kulsoom رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا, to him. One son, Sayyiduna Zayd Akbar and one daughter, Sayyidatuna Ruqayya رَضِیَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُمَا were born to him. (Faizan Farooq-e-A’zam, vol. 1, pp. 79; summarized)
After the martyrdom of Sayyiduna ‘Umar Farooq رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ, Maula ‘Ali-ul-Murtada کَـرَّمَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی وَجۡـھَـهُ الۡـکَـرِیۡم married her to his nephew, Sayyiduna ‘Awn Bin Ja’far رَضِیَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُمَا. After some time, he رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ also passed away. After this, she رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا was married to his brother, Muhammad Bin Ja’far رَضِیَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُمَا. He رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ did not live for long either and passed away from this mortal world too. After this, she was married to her previous brother in law Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Bin Ja’far رَضِیَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُمَا, the husband of her late sister Sayyidatuna Zaynab رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا. She did not have any children from any of the three blessed personalities. (Tabqat-ul-Kubra, vol. 8, pp. 338)
Remember! One certainly takes as many breaths in this world as are written for him in his fate; and when the time of his demise approaches, then not even a single moment’s delay is occurred in seizing his soul. Staying alive or passing away of anyone is merely by the Will of Allah Almighty. No one passes away due to the curse of the other person. Those societies that مَـعَـاذَ الـلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ disgrace and humiliate widows while considering them to be accursed, should learn a lesson from the blessed lives of the beloved companions رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُم. From this, we also learn that in possible circumstances, there is nothing wrong in getting a widow or divorced woman married again; in fact, if the woman is young, then stopping her from second marriage can arise various evils.
Sayyidatuna Umm-e-Kulsoom رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا and her son, Sayyiduna Zayd Bin ‘Umar رَضِیَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُمَا, departed this mortal world on the same day. Sayyiduna Sa’eed Bin ‘Aas رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ led their funeral Salah collectively. (Tabqat-ul-Kubra, vol. 8, pp. 340)
May Allah Almighty shower His mercy upon them and forgive us without accountability for their sake!
