The national Women’s Day and Mother’s Day is celebrated on the 20th day of the lunar Islamic month of Jamadi al-Thani, which marks the birthday anniversary of Hazrat Fatemeh Zahra.

Hazrat Fatima was the wife of Imam Ali (PBUH), the first Imam of Shia Muslims, and is referred to as a role model for all women, truth-seekers and entire mankind who want to pave the divine path.

A large number of believers take the occasion of this holiday to honor their mothers, grandmothers, wives and sisters and pay tribute to them by giving them gifts.

It is notable that Imam Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic attached significance to the birth anniversary of the daughter of Islam by announcing the day as women Day.

Imam recommended the women to follow footsteps of Hazrat Zahra in order to obtain spiritual prosperity in this world and the salvation for the hereafter.

He also maintained that the entire mankind could be relived from plunging into moral or social decline if they follow the divine conduct of Hazrat Zahra and her pure progeny (peace be upon them).

Hazrat Fatima extended her great assistance to her father, the holy prophet of Islam, in promoting the divine religion in early days of Islam. Several narration by the holy prophet himself are an evidence for great spiritual position of Fatima (PBUH) and her proximity to God, the Almighty.
