Hazrath Fatimah (Radhiallaahu Ánha) is the youngest daughter of our beloved Prophet Hazrath Mohammad (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam). Out of all of the kids, he becomes the most liked to him. He said, 'The Queen of the ladies in Jannat is Fatimah.' He additionally stated, 'Fatimah is part of my body. Whoever grieves her, grieves me.'
While Hazrath Fatimah (Radhiallaahu Ánha) reached the age of fifteen, proposals for her marriage began to come back from high and responsible households. However, the Prophet Hazrath Mohammad (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) remained irresponsive.
Hazrath Ali (Radhiallaahu Ánhu), who become 21 on the time, says: It occurred to me that I have to go and make a formal proposal, however then I concept, 'How could this be accomplished, for I possess nothing.'
At final, encouraged by the Prophet's kindness, I went to him and expressed my purpose to marry Fatima (Radhiyallaahu Anha). The Prophet Hazrath Mohammad (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) was really pleased and asked, 'Áli! Do you possess something to present her in Mahr? 'I replied,'other than a horse and an armor I possess nothing.'

So, Hazrath Áli (Radhiallaahu Ánhu) went and sold his armor to Hazrath Uthmaan (Radhiallaahu Ánhu) for 480 Dirham and supplied it to Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam). Hazrath Bilaal (Radhiallaahu Ánhu) was ordered by the Prophet (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) to bring some perfume and a few different things and Hazrath Anas (Radhiallaahu Ánhu) was sent to call Abu Bakr, Uthmaan, Talhah, Zubayr with some companions from the Ansaar (Radhiallaahu Ánhum).
When those men arrived and had taken their seats, the Prophet (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) recited the Khutbah (sermon) of Nikaah and gave Hazrath Fatimah (Radhiallaahu Ánha) in marriage to Hazrath Áli (Radhiallaahu Ánhu). He announced, 'bear you all witness that I've given my daughter Fatimah in marriage to Áli for 400 Mithqaal of silver and Áli has accepted.' He then raised his head and made Duá pronouncing, 'O Allah, create love and harmony between these two. Bless them and bestow upon them, good children.' after the Nikaah, dates were distributed.
Whilst the time came for Hazrath Fatimah (Radhiallaahu Ánha) to visit Hazrath Áli's (Radhiallaahu Ánhu) house, she becomes sent with none clamor, hue and cry Umm Ayman (Radhiallaahu Ánhu). After the Éesha Salaat, the Prophet (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) went to their residence, took permission and entered. He asked for a basin of water, put his blessed fingers into it and sprinkled it on each Áli (Radhiallaahu Ánhu) and Faatimah (Radhiallaahu Ánha) and made Duá for them.
The sovereign of each world gave his beloved daughter a silver bracelet, 2 Yemeni sheets, 4 mattresses, one blanket, one pillow, one cup, one hand-grinding mill, one bedstead, a small water skin, and a leather-based pitcher.
