Should be "The Fatima Prophecy" ?

Reader comment on item: Bibliography – My Writings on Moderate Muslims
in response to reader comment: Aisha

Submitted by Mike Ramirez (United States), Aug 5, 2007 at 16:04

Points to ponder:

1.) Remember that 7th-Century Islam stipulates Muhammad as being the last and final prophet and no other prophet/prophecy would come afterward. Thus, the 'Aisha Prophecy is still questionable since it is said to have been "revealed" in the 11th Century.

2.) When Muhammad died in 632, he had one surviving daughter, Fatima, (a daughter from another wife - not 'Aisha) who was married to Ali, Muhammad's nephew.

3.) Fatima, had personally been at odds with 'Aisha and 'Aisha's father, Abu Bakr, over who would succeed the leadership of Islam upon Muhammad's death. The claim is that the successor to Muhammad's leadership could only be held by a direct bloodline descendant of Muhammad.

4.) Fatima is said to have been more outspoken in proclaiming that she and her husband Ali, should have been the rightful successors of Islam.

5.) Fatima mysteriously died a few months after Muhammad. Cause of her death was presumed to be by poisoning.

6.) Sunni Islam is based upon the original followers of Abu Bakr ('Aisha's Father) who establish leadership by a Caliphate.

7.) Shi'a Islam is based upon followers of Ali' (Fatima's cousin/husband) who await the messianic appearance of al-Mahdi.

Question: If it was true, which one would really be the most likely to "prophetically return" to set things straight? 'Aisha, or, Fatima??? Just a thought.
