|2.||Fatima Is Fatima|
Author: Dr. Ali Shariati
Translator: Laleh Bakhtiar
...... Shariati takes us to the heart of Shi'ism - Fatima, the beloved daughter of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). He describes the woman we could not see, the one we thought we knew but only after his guidance do we become aware of the fact that although we related each day directly to her spirit, she had been lost as a model for our daily lives. That is, we had an emotional attachment to her inner essence but we had removed her form. Shariati takes us to Fatima. He begins with the social customs of the Arabian Peninsula before her birth where according to custom, female children were buried alive at birth in order to save the family from the disgrace of having an unsuitable son-in-law. It was the revolutionary message of Islam which did away with this custom. God reveals through the Quran that the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had been given the abundant river of Paradise and through that river, he shall have abundant progeny although according to Arab beliefs at that time, a man without a son is called 'cut-off'. How could it be? The father of a daughter will have abundant progeny?
|3.||Fatima The Gracious|
Compiler: Abu - Muhammad Ordoni
This is a biography of Fatima az Zahra a.s. daughter of Prophet of Islam (saww), upto the time of Prophets death. Because of the extremely sensitive period which followed Prophets death, and the everlasting effects which the events thereafter left upon the Islamic ideology and the structure of various Muslim sects and issues, the compiler deemed necessary to study various historical books, especially those which dealth with Lady Fatima Zahra's life, to come up with the most accurate information regarding the prime of the post period of the Prophets death. Moreover, various sermons which were delivered during those events, were intentionally included in the book especially Fatima's speeches so as to allow researchers to study the said historical events independently. In the end, we would like to mention that this book will be very useful not only to information seeking readers, but also to researchers and history students.

|6.||Nahjul Balagha (Peak of Eloquence)|
Author: Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (a.s.)
This collection is the most reputed collection of Imam Ali a.s., which was compiled by Sayyid Radhi towards the 4th century of Hijra. This mode of collection and compilation is in itself enough to convince an unbiased person that Sayyid Radhi's own style of writing or power of expression has nothing to do with it, but that he has confined himself to collecting Amirul Mumineen's utterances from various places and putting them together.
