When is Martyrdom Of Hazrat Fatimah?

Martyrdom Of Hazrat Fatimah, also known as Fāṭimīyya, is a bank holiday in Iran observed on the third day of the Islamic month Jumada al-Thani. 

The Islamic calendar is based on lunar months and as such runs about 12 days shorter than the western calendar. Please see the table of dates on this page for the date of this holiday.

Traditions of Martyrdom Of Hazrat Fatimah

Fatimah bin Muhammad was the youngest daughter and the only child of the prophet Muhammad and Khadijah who lived to adulthood, and therefore part of Muhammad’s household. 

Fatimah was born in Mecca to Khadija, the first of Muhammad's wives. She had three sisters and three brothers, all of whom died in childhood.

She was a wife of Ali, Muhammad's cousin, and was the mother of the second and third Imams, Hasan and Hussain.

Fatimah died, six months after Muhammad, aged 29 on 3 Jumada al-Thani 632 AD. Shia belief states that her death was the result of injuries sustained after her house was raided by Umar ibn al-Khattab, the second caliph of the Rashidun Caliphate.

Fatimah remains one of the most popular girl's names throughout the Muslim world. Fatimah is seen as a vital character in Islam and is considered a role model for all Muslim women.

Jumada al-Thani 3 has been observed as a national holiday in Iran since 2000. This has led to an increase in the number of mourning ceremonies in Iran. Some Shi'as attend ritual mourning processions, walking toward the Holy Shrine of Imam al-Rida in Mashhad, and the Holy Shrine of Lady Fatima al-Ma'suma in Qom.
