Fatima

From Sahaja Yoga Encyclopedia

She was the daughter of Mohammed Sahib and was married to [Ali| Hazrat Ali], and She had two children, Hasan and Husain, who were ultimately killed in Karbala by the fanatics, who were that time called themselves Sunnis... Fatima lost Her two children, and She was the embodiment of Gruha Lakshmi. She resides in our [Left Nabhi|Nabhi]. So for all the diseases that are connected with the spleen, all the problems that are connected with your Left Nabhi can be only corrected by Fatima. So you have to keep Fatima awakened within yourself... (1993/05/18) But though She was in the house, She was Shakti, so She allowed her sons or actually ordered them to fight those fanatics who were trying to deny the authority of her husband. And you know, Hasan and Hussain, they were killed there. It’s a very beautiful thing how the Mahalakshmi Tatva of Sita took a form of Vishnumaya just to establish the beautiful principle of a housewife. Now, She was very powerful, no doubt, and She knew that her children will be killed. But these people are never killed, they never die nor do they suffer. It’s a drama they had to play to show people how stupid they are.(1988/08/14) She also incarnated as Nanaka’s sister, as Nanaki. (1982/10/29)

The last Mahalakshmi principle came as Fatima. (1990/10/21)

She is the ideal of womanhood

The last Mahalakshmi principle came as Fatima. Fatima, as the Gruha Lakshmi, She stayed at home. She did not show off. She was not the one who went out. She stayed at home, looked after the household, looked after their children and made them two great warriors. Her children and Her husband, they fought for right. They fought for the truth. She was a Gruha Lakshmi. The Gruha Lakshmi is the one who is represented in the life of Fatima, who was the daughter of Mohammed-sahib. Now She is always born in a relationship to a guru which is of virginity, of purity. So She comes as a sister or She comes as a daughter. At a young age, She had these two sweet children who died in the war in Karbala. What a brave woman, the way She established the Shia system. Her husband also died and She did all that on Her own. Living behind the purdah, living behind the walls, She managed everything. You have to keep Fatima awakened within yourself. In the Islamic culture, a housewife was given a very, very important place. Mohammed understood that unless and until women are kept absolutely chaste, absolutely pure, there cannot be the Kingdom of God. (Excerpt from Deities book)
