Fatimah bintu Nasr ibn Al ‘Attar Al Baghdadiyyah

Question

There is a narration about the modesty of a pious woman who had such haya, that she never left her house except on three occasions (Her birth, when she got married and her janazah)

I am unsure about her name, if it was Fatimah Al Baghdadiyyah or another person

What is the source of this report and the identity of the righteous woman?

 

Answer

This was indeed Fatimah bintu Nasr ibn Al ‘Attar Al Baghdadiyyah. She was known to be extremely pious. ‘Allamah Dhahabi (rahimahullah) writes, ‘Her brother said: ‘She only left the house thrice in her entire lifetime’

(Tarikhul Islam, vol. 23 pg. 526, Al Bidayah Wan Nihayah, vol. 14 pg. 284/285)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
