Why is the martyrdom of the daughter of the Messenger of God (PBUH) Fatemeh Al-Zahra (PBUH) held at three different times? There is a difference of opinion among the historical books about the number of days that Hazrat Siddiqah Tahereh, peace be upon him, was alive after the death of her noble father. Some historians, such as Ya'qubi, have mentioned this period as forty days, and others, such as Aisha, the daughter of Abi Bakr, have mentioned this period as six months, and others as eight months. Among Shiite scholars, there are two well-known and accepted dates: one seventy-five days after the death of the Prophet (PBUH) and the other ninety-five days. It is narrated from Imam Baqir (as) that he said: It is true that the time of the death of Siddiqah Kobra, peace be upon him, was three months after the death of the Holy Prophet of Islam, peace be upon him and his family.
