Imam Hassan Askari (a.s) reported that his Fathers quoted Jabir Ibn Abdullah as saying:
"Rahmatallil Aalameen Muhammad (s.a.w.w) said:
'When Allah created Adam and Eve, they strutted through paradise and said:
'Who are better than we?'
At that moment they noticed an image of a girl like they had never seen before; from this girl came an illuminating light so bright that it almost blinded the eyes. They said:
'O Lord, what is this?'
'This is the image of Fatima, the mistress of your women descendants.'
'What is this crown on her head?'
Allah, the Lord said:
'Her husband Ali.'
Adam then asked:
'What are her two earrings?'
'Her (two) sons, they were ordained in My ever-existent knowledge two thousand years before I created you."
