Time of Migration and Marriage: At the age of around 8 years Lady Fatimah ('a) migrated along with Imam Ali ('a) to Medina and in the second year of migration, in the beginning of Zil Hijja was married to Imam Ali ('a) and bore five children. Their names: Hassan ('a), Hussain ('a), Zaynab ('a), Ume Kulsoom ('a) and Mohsin ('a).
Time and Place of Martyrdom: Was martyred on the  Jumaada ul Thaany/ 3rd - Passing of  Lady Fatimah Al-Zahra ('a) (according to another source, 13rd Jamaada ul Awal, Wiladat 10th Jumaada ul Akhar) at the age of 18 years (Fascinating Discourses of Fourteen Infallibles ('a), Islamic Propagation Organisation, Iran).

Lady Fatimah ('a) is quoted as having said:

" I ask you (Imam Ali ('a)) not to let anyone who did injustice to me to witness my funeral, 
for they certainly are enemies of mine, and the enemy of Allah's Messenger. 
Also don't give them the chance to pray over me, 
nor to any of their followers. 
Bury me at night when eyes are rested and sight is put to sleep."
 
(odeh A. Muhawesh, pg. 199).

Eulogy of Imam Ali ('a) at Lady Fatimah’s ('a) Grave

Imam Ali ibn Abu Talib ('a) recited the following at his loving wife's funeral, Lady Fatimah ('a):

“O Prophet of Allah, peace be upon you from me and from your daughter who has come to you and who has hastened to meet you.  O Prophet of Allah ('s), my patience about your chosen (daughter) has been exhausted and my power of endurance has weakened, except that I have ground for consolation in having endured the great hardship and heart-rending event of your separation.  I laid you down in your grave while your last breath had passed (when your head) was between my neck and chest. ‘Verily we are Allah’s and verily unto Him shall we return’ (2:56)

Now that the trust has been returned and what had been given has been taken back.  My grief knows no bounds and my nights will remain sleepless till Allah chooses for me the house in which you are now residing.  Certainly your daughter would apprise you of the joining together of your Ummah (people) for oppressing her.  You ask her in detail and get all the news about the position.  This happened when a long time had not elapsed and your remembrance had not disappeared.  My Salam be on you both, the Salam of a grief stricken not of a disgusted or hateful person; for if I go away it is not because I am weary (of you) and if I stay it is not due to lack of belief in what Allah has promised the endurers”.

Day of Resurrection

On the day of rising, Lady Fatimah ('a), the infallible daughter of the Holy Prophet of Islam, Prophet Muhammad ('s) and Lady Khadija ('a), the beloved wife of Imam Ali ibn Abu Talib ('a), the loving Mother of Imam Hassan ('a), Imam Hussain ('a), Lady Zaynab ('a), Ume Kulsoom ('a) and Mohsin ('a), will be called by Angel Gabriel (r.a), where the gathering of people will be asked to lower their gaze. 

Allah (swt), the exalted will say:

"O people of the gathering; lower your heads and cast your eyes down, for this is Fatimah proceeding towards Paradise." 

Gabriel shall then bring her a female camel from the female camels of Paradise; its sides shall be embellished, its muzzle with fresh pearls, and it shall have a saddle of coral. It shall kneel down in her presence; so she will ride it. Allah will then send 100,000 angels to accompany her on her right side and 100,000 angels to accompany her on her left side and 100,000 angels to lift her onto their wings until they bring her to the gate of Paradise. When she is near the gate of Paradise, she will look to her side.

Allah (swt) then will say:

"Daughter of My beloved, why did you look to your side after I gave the command that you enter My Paradise?"

She ('a) will say:

"My Lord, I wished that my position would be realised on such a Day!"

Allah (swt) will say:

"Daughter of My beloved, go back and look for everyone in whose heart was love for you or for any of your progeny; take their hand and lead them into Paradise."

Abu Jafar ('a) said:

"By Allah; Jabir, she will pick her Shiites (followers) and those who love her, just like a bird picks good seeds from bad seeds. So that when her Shiites are near the gate of Paradise, Allah will inspire their hearts to look to their sides; "

When they do, Allah (swt), the Almighty, will say:

"My beloved ones, why do  you look around when Fatimah, the daughter of My beloved one, interceded for you?"

They will answer:

"Our Lord! We hoped that pure position would be known on such a  day!"

Allah will then say:

"My beloved ones, go back and look for everyone who loved you for your love for Fatimah, 
Look for everyone who fed you for the love of Fatimah,
Look for everyone who clothed you for the love for Fatimah,
Look for everyone who gave you drink for the love of Fatimah;
Look for everyone who prevented (Gheeba) backbiting from being done against you for the love of Fatimah...
Take their hands and lead them into Paradise..." 
Ref:( Odeh A. Muhawesh, pg. 205-206 )

Prayer for Lady Fatimah ('a)

It is reported that Lady Fatimah ('a) said:

"My father said to me: 'He who prays on your behalf, Allah, Exalted and Glorified is He, shall forgive him and make him join me wherever I may be in Paradise.'"

Below is the prayer mentioned in Mafatih Al-Jinan (The Keys to Paradise):

In the Name of Allah, Most Beneficent, Most Merciful.

Peace be upon Muhammad and his Progeny.

O you who were tried;
Allah Who Created you tried
you before He Created your
(flesh);
He found you patient with
that which He tried you with.

We claim that we are your
followers, believing in you, and
(believing and) bearing with
everything that had been brought
unto us by your father ('s),
and that which his successor
brought unto us.

Therefore, we beg you (now
that we believe) to make us
join both of them so that we
may rejoice at being purified
for following you,
(It is recommended to add here)
Peace be upon you O daughter of
the Messenger of Allah;
Peace be upon you O daughter
of the Prophet of Allah;
Peace be upon you O daughter
of the beloved of Allah;
Peace be upon you O daughter
of the friend of Allah;
Peace be upon you O daughter
of the sincere friend of Allah;
Peace be upon you O daughter
of the trust (Messenger) of
Allah;
Peace be upon you O daughter 
of the best of Allah's creatures;
Peace be upon you O daughter
of the best of Allah's prophets,
Messengers and angels;
Peace be upon you O Daughter
of him who  is the best of
all creatures;
Peace be upon you O wife of the
friend of Allah and the best of creatures after the Messenger
of Allah;
Peace be upon  you O Mother of
Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain,
who are the masters of the
youths of Paradise;
Peace be upon you the truth-
teller (devoted one) and martyr;
Peace be upon  you O gratified
and accepted one;
Peace be upon you O well-
mannered and chaste one;
Peace be upon you O human
huri;
Peace be upon you O pious and pure one;
Peace be upon you who is 
spoken to by angels, and
who is knowledgeable;
Peace be upon you O oppressed
and usurped one;
Peace be upon you o repressed
and defeated one;
Peace be upon you O Fatimah
daughter of Allah's Messenger;
and may the blessings and
mercy of Allah be upon you and
upon your soul and body;
I bear witness that you have perished while fully knowing
your Lord.

(I also bear witness) that he
who gladdens you gladdens the
Messenger of Allah ('s);
he who deserts you deserts the 
Messenger of Allah ('s);
he who harms you harms the
Messenger of Allah ('s);
he who bestows you (with a favour)
bestows (a favour) upon the
Messenger of Allah ('s);
and he who deprives you deprives
the Messenger of Allah ('s);
(This is) because you are "part
of him and his spirit which lies
is his sides"
Allah, His Messengers and His
Apostles are my witness that
I accept him whom you accept,
I exonerate myself to Allah
from him who you exonerate
yourself to Allah from, him 
who you befriend, hold as my
enemy those who you hold (as
your enemies), and dislike him,
who you dislike.

Allah is the best Witness, the 
best anticipated One, best

Rewarder, and most Merciful.

It is recommended that praying on behalf of the Prophet and his progeny be recited after this prayer for the Lady of the Worlds. (odeh A. Muhawesh, pg 220- 222)
