Some people only champion for the cause of fatima, if fadak was to be inherited who are the beneficiaries? Why people dont stand up for the cause of other beneficiaries?

I feel fatima and prophets widows (mothers of believers) were beneficiaries from my limited knowledge.

  • For this a prophet must be allowed to leave a heritage first. Else the beneficiary is the bayt al-Mal. And that's one of the main issues between Sunni's and Shi'a. – Medi1Saif Apr 2 '20 at 15:19
  • @Medi1Saif I hope my question is pointing to "for sake of argument". I am setting aside prophets leaving inheritance for a moment. My intention is to make people think from other angles – Preordainment Apr 2 '20 at 17:08
  • All eligible people according to Sharia would inherit from the Holy Prophet (as). As for Fadak and some other properties, the Shia believe that they were particularly left for Fatima (as) and Banu Hashim not other people. Some sources suggest that Fadak was actually a gift for Fatima (as). – infatuated Apr 3 '20 at 10:47
  • Who among banu hashim? Shia also believe Mahdi will be leader of muslims , but their sources say otherwise – Preordainment Apr 3 '20 at 10:54
