Iran has celebrated the birth anniversary of Hazrat Fatimah Zahra PBUH), the daughter of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The occasion is also referred to as Mother’s Day in Iran.

The convergence of the two occasions namely Mother’s Day and Hazrat Fatimah Zahra’s birthday highlights the importance of women’s role in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The name Fatimah is one of the most popular girls' names across the Islamic world. Fatimah is a vital character in the religion of Islam and is considered a role model for all Muslim women.

But this year, Mother’s Day is observed across the country under the shadow of COVID-19; therefore unlike previous years, most people prefer to make video calls to remember and thank their mothers for all their kindness and affection.

To Muslim believers, Hazrat Fatimah Zahra is a perfect symbol of affection and motherhood. Thanks to having many virtues and dignities, she has left many lessons to be learned by all women throughout history.
