Forty Traditions from Hazrat Zahra (sa)

1. Praise & Eulogy Is for Allah for the blessing & bounties which He has bestowed. And thanks to Him upon what He revealed (to His servants) And Praise Is for Him upon the common boons & blessings which He bestowed upon His servants without their request And upon the comprehensive & complete blessings which He granted to all & sundry & gave It to us, consecutively. Those graces & favors which are uncountable.
And are Irredeemable & not compensable due to their plentiful-ness of number. And the Imagination of their end is out of the reach of human mind.
He invited the servant to thankfulness for the sake of the consecutive & continuous enhancement of blessings. And opened the door of eulogy & Praise (of Allah) upon them so that He may make his favors & beneficences great & plentiful for them.' 1

2. I testify that there is no Deity (Lord) except the sole & matchless Allah. And the testification of the singleness of Allah is a word that Allah has declared sincerity (as) its reality, & made the hearts the center of its contact & union. And has made the specifications & research of the oneness of Allah's station obvious & evident In the light of meditation. The Allah Who cannot be seen by the eyes & tongues are unable & baffled to describe His virtues & attributes. And the intelligence & apprehension of man is helpless & destitute from the imagination of his lowness. 2

30. Certainly, an apostle has come to you from among yourselves; grievous to him is your falling into distress, excessively solicitous respecting you; to the believers (he is) compassionate, merciful.
So if you assay & recognize him you will find he is my father not the father of your women & the brother of my cousin, (Ali (as)) not that of your men. And how nice a relation I have to him. So he propagated his prophetic (mission). He always used to turn his face from the polytheists.
And fought against them till he beat them up. He would invite people towards Allah by wisdom, & beautiful admonition. He broke the idols & scattered the aggregation of polytheists in a way that they ran away (from the battle fields), so that finally the hidden secret of oneness of Allah became manifested by him.
And he made the logic of religion reach the ears ( (of the people) & settled down the foam of the camels of Satan & turned the slogan yelling of those devils silent. And downed the agents of hypocrisy & mutual commitments of the infidels got dissolved till such time that, you (people) spoke to a group of enlightened & modest men with the words of oneness of Allah & sincerity.30)

And for your abjectness & abasement you were always afraid that those around you might abduct you in the winking of an eye. So, Allah liberated you (of these misfortunes) through my father Mohammed (S). In spite of it that he (S) was involved & at war against the intrepid & the hungry wolves of Arab & the stubborn refractories of the people of the books (Jews & Christians). Whenever his opponents would lit the fire of war, Allah extinguished it to your benefit. 31
