 Imam Raza (as) said (part of a lengthy narration):

"When the new moon of the month of Ramadhan would come up, the noor (light) of Fatema Zahra (sa) would over come the new moon and the moon would be hidden and when She (sa) would go then the moon would become visible."

 "In the Presence of the Lord, the meaning (al-murad) of the Sabbath is Fatima the Resplendent (al-fâtima al-zahra'), because She is the Day of the Book (yawm al-kitâb). Verily the Godhead hath caused all created things (kullu-shay') to appear through Her..."

 “I am al-Rahmân. 
I created the womb and I derived its name from My name. 
I will be connected to whoever stays connected to it,
and I will be cut off from whoever stays cut off from it.”

 English version by Th. Emil Homerin
Original Language Arabic
 
By her, I departed to her
     from me, never to return;
          one like me never speaks
               of coming back.
 
Kindly I secluded my soul
     away from my departure;
          never again did I allow it
               to be my companion.
 
Then I was made to disappear
     from where my soul stood apart,
          that no attribute could appear
               to crowd me in my presence,
 
And I was made to witness
     my absence when she appeared,
          so I found me, her there,
               in the bridal chamber of my seclusion.
 
In my witnessing, my existence
     was cast off, and I was far
          from the existence of my witnessing,
               effacing, not transfixing.
 
I embraced what I witnessed
     by bearing witness to it
          in the effacement of my witness,
               now sober after my drunkenness.
 
In the sobriety after effacement,
     I was none other than her,
          my essence adorned my essence
               when she removed her veil.

(English adaptation by Martin Lings)
 
Full near I came unto where dwelleth
Layla, when I heard her call.
That voice, would I might ever hear it!
She favored me, and drew me to her,
Took me in, into her precinct,
With discourse intimate addressed me.
She sat me by her, then came closer,
Raised the cloak that hid her from me,
Made me marvel to distraction,
Bewildered me with all her beauty.
She took me and amazed me,
And hid me in her inmost self,
Until I thought that she was I,
And my life she took as ransom.
She changed me and transfigured me,
And marked me with her special sign,
Pressed me to her, put me from her,
Named me as she is named.
Having slain and crumbled me,
She steeped the fragments in her blood.
Then, after my death, she raised me:
My star shines in her firmament.
Where is my life, and where my body,
Where my willful soul? From her
The truth of these shone out to me
Secrets that had been hidden from me.
Mine eyes have never seen but her:
To naught else can they testify.
All meanings in her are comprised.
Glory be to her Creator!
Thou that beauty wouldst describe,
Here is something of her brightness
Take it from me. It is my art.
Think it not idle vanity.
My Heart lied not when it divulged
The secret of my meeting her.
If nearness unto her effaceth,
I still subsist in her substance.
 
-Shaykh Ahmad al-‘Alawi
