Setting aside hardships
It is important to note that in spite of all the hardships Muslims and especially Hazrat Fatima and her family were going through, and the problems and pains this great family suffered at the hands of the cruel, ignorant people of their times, within the family, they always shared very warm, affectionate and joyful times.

All of these very scientific methods played a very major role in bringing up their children as the bravest and most powerful people in human history.
Although Hazrat Fatima was martyred at a very young age, while she was only 18 years old, she played her role as a mother most perfectly and efficiently, leaving behind for the world a legacy of great and powerful heroes like Hassan (AS) and Hussain (AS) and Hazrat Zainab (SA) who in times to come, valiantly fought oppression and tyranny.
