Why Lady Fatima Zahra (AS) wanted to be buried in an unknown grave?

SHAFAQNA – The main reason Lady Fatima Zahra (AS) wanted to be buried in an unknown grave was due to the events which took place during her short lifetime. It is narrated that when Lady Fatima Zahra (AS) at the point of death was talking to Imam Ali (AS) and asked him for permission to make a will. One of her requests from Imam Ali (AS) was: O’ my cousin, if I pass away in a few hours time, perform all the burial ceremonies at night, only allow those to be present in the ceremony that have not oppressed or betrayed me.

In fact by this act Lady Fatima Zahra (AS) wanted to show her dissatisfaction of the rulers of the time [1]. With her will, Lady Fatima Zahra (AS) wanted to draw people’s attention towards her rights which were taken away from her [2]. By hiding her grave, the daughter of the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) wanted to show her real dissatisfaction of some people of the time [3].
