Once in an Arabian city, there was a wife or a gold merchant who only had one son. One day, the wife went to the well to get water with her son. She sat her son down near the well, and then started to get water. Next to the well, there lived a potter whose oven was very hot. The son started to run toward the flames. After filling water, the woman could not find her son. She thought he had already gone home. When she came home, she could not find him there either. She became worried and started crying, then went back to the well to look for him again. She asked a lot of people if they had seen him but they did not know.
Night came and suddenly, the people said he fell into the oven and burned. The mother started crying so much she fainted. The mother then started dreaming and saw a veiled woman. The woman told her not to worry and that she would see her son very soon. The mother then promised to the woman that if she found her son alive, she would listen to the story of the miracle of Bibi Fatima (as). When the mother woke up, she found her son standing right next to her. Because of the miracle of Bibi Fatima (as), the fire did not burn him or his clothes. SALAWAAT

The mother then took her son to the store and bought sweets. She asked her neighbor to tell her the story of Bibi Fatima (as), but she did not know the story. She asked six other neighbors and told her that they did not know the story or did not want to waste their time telling it. The woman became very disappointed and started going to the jungle. After a while, she saw the veiled woman again, who asked her not to cry, but to just sit down, for she would tell the story of Bibi Fatima (as)...
The story is
Once there was a Jewish man who lived in Medina, and his daughter was going to get married. He thought he should invite Bibi Fatima (as) to the wedding to make fun of her and her father, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), for their simple clothing. He went to the Prophet's house and asked him to allow Bibi Fatima (as) to go to the wedding. The Prophet said that "Her husband, Imam Ali (as), will decide if she goes or not."

The Jewish man then went to the Imam and asked the same question.
He told the man , " Bibi Fatima (as) will decide for herself". He then went to Bibi Fatima (as)and asked "My daughter is getting married, would you please come to the wedding?"
She answered, "Let me ask the Imam" The man said, "I have already asked your father and husband, who said you will decide for yourself". Bibi Fatima then agreed to go to the wedding.
After the Jewish man left, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) came and Bibi Fatima told him the situation and asked if she could go. He told her it is her choice. Bibi Fatima said "If I go, it will be an insult on your family because all the women will be wearing fancy clothes and jewelry while my clothes are old with patches". The Prophet replied, "Oh my daughter, go as you are. What Allah wants to happen, will happen."
Right when Bibi Fatima (as) was leaving the house, some women came down from the sky and gave her beautiful clothes and jewelry from heaven. After she wore the clothes, the angels surrounded Bibi Fatima (as) and went with her to the wedding. When they arrived, the whole house started to light up because of Bibi Fatima's brightness. There was also a sweet smell like no one had ever smelled before. All the Jewish women, including the bride, fainted. After a while, they all woke up, except for the bride. When they went to check if she was okay, they figured out she was dead. Suddenly, the happy house filled with celebration became a house of sadness.
Bibi Fatima (as) became very upset about this. She said "Don't worry; the bride will wake up soon."
She prayed two rakaats namaz and asked Allah, "Oh my lord. I am your Prophet's daughter. My honor is in your hands. The people might think this happened because of me." When she finished her prayers, the bride suddenly woke up and recited the kalimah. SALAWAAT
She said that there is only one God, that Muhammad is his last prophet and that Bibi Fatima (as) is his daughter. She then accepted Islam and became a Muslim. When the 500 other people saw this miracle, they all accepted Islam and became Muslim too, and sent Bibi Fatima (as) to her home with great respect. When she came back, she told everything to her father. The Prophet then thanked Allah for this miracle.

After telling this story to the gold merchant's wife, the veiled woman disappeared, and the wife went back home.
