5th Faatemi Imaam Maulaana Ja’far us-Saadiq (as) quotes this event where he says that, One night Maulaatona Faatemah (as) saw a frightening and horrifying dream in which Rasoolullaah (saws), M. Ali (as), M. Hasan and Husain (as) along with her went out of Madeenah until they came at the place named Faseel. They all stopped there a while and saw that the way gets divided into two and they waited till Rasoolullaah (saws) took the way towards right side and they started walking along with him. They reached a spot where some people were camping and nearby there were date-palms, oasis and herd of goats. Rasoolullaah (saws) purchased a goat which had a white prominent dot on its right ear and ordered to sacrifice it by the name of Allaah Ta’aala. Then it was cooked and they all sat together and ate it and suddenly she saw that they all died immediately.
Seeing this fearful dream she wept heavily and in the morning she came shivering near Rasoolullaah (saws) to seek refuge and succor. She didn’t utter a word or make anyone feel behind the reason of her weeping. Rasoolullaah (saws) came with a mule and asked Faatemah to get on it and he also called Ali, Hasan and Husain to accompany him. They all went outside Madeenah and stopped where the way got split into two and Rasoolullaah (saws) walked to the right side. They spotted an oasis and took refuge for a while and to beat hunger he purchased a goat, performed zabeehat and called everyone to sit and eat its meat. Listening the call Faatemah stood weeping incessantly and went to a corner hiding her face. She got frightened as the entire dream revolved around her eyes where she saw eating of that meat the reason for the death of Ahl ul-Bayt (as). Rasoolullaah (saws) asked her the cause of her crying and not coming together to have a feast. Faatemah narrated what she saw in a dream and she was not in a position to see them die after having a food.
Listening to her account full of fear and sorrow, Rasoolullaah (saws) offered two rak’at namaaz and did munaajaat in Baargaah-e-Rabbaani. No sooner Rasoolullaah (saws) completed his du’aa than Jibra’eel Farishta descended upon his heart and revealed that, O Mohammad! One of the Shaitaan named Zoha showed Faatemah this dreadful dream. It is the handiwork of this Shaitaan to show mumineen this type of dreams and frighten them and also make their belief in Allaah Ta’aala weaker. Rasoolullaah (saws) requested Jibra’eel to bring that cursed Zoha in front of Ahl ul-Bayt (as). Dragging him with chains when he was bought, Rasoolullaah (saws) asked him, “Is it you who have made my daughter Faatemah cry and frightened her?” He answered, “Yes, I have done it.”
Immediately Rasoolullaah (saws) thumped three times in his left side at three different places. Jibra’eel Farishta said that, “O Mohammad! May Allaah grace you with His Rahmat, if you or your mumin happen to see such fearful and inauspicious dream then you should recite this Du’aa. After these Kalemaat, recite Surat ul-Faatehah (al-Hamdo lillaah), Surat un-Naas (Qul a’ooza be-Rabbin Naas), Surat ul-Falaq (Qul a’ooza be-Rabbil Falaq) and Surat ul-Ikhlaas (Qul howallaaho Ahad) and then thump three times on your left side. If you do this ‘amal, no Shaitaan will able to harm you at all.
