When I search for the Fadak sermon by the Mistress Al-Zahra (peace be upon her) on the Internet and on all websites and forums, I do not find this part:
Then fight the Imams of disbelief, for there are no oaths (held sacred) to them, perhaps that they desist (from it).
What is the source of the Fadak sermon that includes this part?
In the Name of Allah, the All-Beneficent, the All-Merciful.
May Allah bless Muhammad and his Family and damn their enemies.
Refer to the book
- As-Saqifa wa Fadak, page 102, by Abu Bakr al-Jawhari, one of the elite scholars of the ‘Sunnis’ whom they considered trustworthy, from the 3rd and 4th Hijri centuries.
Moreover, refer to
- Sharh Nahj-il-Balagha, by Ibn Abi’l-Hadeed, the Mu’tazilite, volume 16, page 213
Our Lady Fatima (May Allah’s greatest peace and blessings be upon her) mentioned this verse in regards to the following context:
Have you retreated after moving forward, and fallen back after hardship, and become cowards after bravery, from (facing) a people who broke their oaths and violated your religion? ‘Then fight the Imams of disbelief, for there are no oaths (held sacred) to them, perhaps that they desist (from it).
