I really loved this book, it gave me a sense of being present with Fatimah Zahra (s.a.) throughout her whole ordeal with the first two caliphs, very sad and heartbreaking. I am however only giving it 4 stars because the author or translator needed to be more precise in citing where in the books they draw their sources from, meaning they should have written the page numbers and volume of the books they used.

The translation to English is excellent - clear and easy to read book, yet, this is also an extremely difficult, painful, collection of hadith that will open up wounds in your heart that may never heal.

Her Majesty, the Lady of Light was indeed martyred in the cruelest of fashions. She wasn't just slapped, she was beaten barbarically - so much so, that her earrings were smashed into pieces whilst still on her ears.

May Allah the Almighty grant consolation and comfort to the Mahdi A.S.

Amazing, heart rending, thought provoking. I would say House of Sorrows is a seminal work on the life and importance of Lady Fatima, except that there never could be such a thing. A must read!

I loved reading about the Prophet Muhammad's daughter, Fatima, and her struggles. Everything was so well put together that it really gave insight into her life.
