Month at a Glance - Jamadi al-Awwal

By Dr.Raza Dungersi

Jamadi-ul-Awwal is the 5th Islamic Month. According to some sources, Hadhrat Fatima, Peace be upon her, passed away seventy five days after the passing away of the Prophet, Peace be upon him and his Progeny. As the Prophets day of 'wafat' was on the 28th of Safar, 11 A.H., the martydom of Hadhrat Fatima Peace be upon her, therefore must have occurred on the 13th, 14th, or 15th month of Jamadiul Awwal. However, other more authentic sources state that the 3rd of the month of Jamadiul Akher to be the day on which Hadhrat Fatima departed from this world. According to Late Ayatollah Mohsin Hakim, there is a lot of merit in observing day of mourning on all these occasions.

Hadith of the Month

الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): علَيكُم بِإتيانِ المَساجِدِ؛ فإنّها بُيوتُ اللّه‏ِ في الأرضِ ، ومَن أتاها مُتَطَهِّراً طَهَّرَهُ اللّه‏ُ مِن ذُنوبِهِ وكُتِبَ مِن زُوّارِهِ فَأكثِرُوا فيها مِن الصَّلاةِ والدُّعاء

'It is incumbent upon you to attend the mosques, for verily they are the houses of Allah on earth. And whoever enters them having purified himself, Allah will purify him of his sins and will record him down as one of its frequenters, so perform many prayers and supplications therein.’[Amali al-Saduq, p. 293, no. 8]
- Imam Jafar as-Sadiq A.S
