House of Sorrows (A Translation of Baytul Ahzan) by Shaykh Abbas Al-Qummi,

Aejaz Ali Turab Husain (Translator)

House of Sorrows is the first ever book in English to detail the last six months of the life of the only daughter of Prophet Muhammad, Fatema az-Zahra.

This book focuses on the status of Lady Fatema from Qur’anic verses and traditions and delves into the events immediately preceding the death of Prophet Muhammad.

There are a number of events discussed in this text such as saqifah, the taking of Fadak, and then, in vivid words, goes through the last months of her life.

Be prepared to shed tears as you read the heart-wrenching events of what happened to az-Zahra as recounted and narrated in the major books of the Ahlus Sunnah and the Shi’a.
