Shi'a view

There are Shi'a Muslim tradition that can be found in Usul al-Kafi about a book called "Mushaf of Fatimah", which speaks of Fatimah upon the passing of her father, Muhammad. There are several versions of this tradition, but common to all are that the angel Gabriel appeared to her and consoled her by telling her things that she wrote in a book. According to one tradition [1] they were prophesies. The book, if it was ever physical, did not survive, and was seen to be something that the Mahdi would reveal in the last days [2].

Sunni view

Sunni do not have any sources regarding such book, and are known to have missrepresented Fatimah's Mushaf as "Fatimah's Qur'an", accusing Shi'as of having their own version of the Qur'an, or at least believing such exists. Shi'a reject all such notions [2].


The Sunni website AhlelBayt.com deems the Shiite rejections as an example of Taqiyya. The website quotes the following narration from Usul al-Kafi: In Shia Islamic tradition, Taqiyya (التقية) is the dissimulation of one’s religious beliefs when one fears for ones life, the lives of ones family members, or for the preservation of the faith. ...

Bahá'í view

Bahá'u'lláh, the founder of the Bahá'í Faith wrote Kalimát-i-Maknúnih or The Hidden Words around 1857.

Bahá'ís believe that The Hidden Words was revealed by Bahá'u'lláh in fulfillment of this tradition. Indeed, Bahá'u'lláh originally named the book The Book of Fatimah, though he later referred to it in its modern appellation.[11] This aspect of fulfillment corresponds with the Bahá'í beliefs that end times prophecies of all the world's religions are to be interpreted mystically and metaphorically. This puts the Bahá'í understanding of what Gabriel revealed to Fatimah somewhat at odds with the Shi'a traditions. // The End Times are a time of tribulation that will precede the coming of a Messiah figure in many world religions. ...
